Oxford/Richmond Qualifier Up Next For PASS North At Petty

(RIVER GLADE, NB – April 13th, 2018) – Management at Petty International Raceway is thrilled to announce a partnership with Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre. Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre will be the presenting sponsor for the 150-lap Pro All Stars Series (PASS) event at Petty International Raceway on Saturday, June 2nd. The Petty Raceway Late Model, Westwood Estates Street Stock, Mister Transmission Mini Stock and Leisure Days/CRC RV Bandolero divisions will play support to the Pro All Stars Series.

The Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre 150 for the Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Models marks the first time the Series will visit ¼-mile oval. The race is the seventh event on the North schedule for 2018 and the second of four “Roads to Oxford and Richmond” races on the year. The top five drivers in the Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre 150 will receive a guaranteed starting position at either the 45th Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway (ME) on August 26th or the inaugural Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway (VA) on October 20th.

The Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre 150 also serves as the second of five Bumper to Bumper Petty $5k Pro Stock Challenge (PPSC) races. Announced last week, house points will be kept over the five Pro Stock/Super Late Model events at Petty International Raceway in 2018 and competitors will be able to count their best four events towards the PPSC championship standings.

Allan Curry, General Manager of Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre, has been actively involved in the Maritime motorsports community for decades. Curry is looking forward to the return to Atlantic Canada of the largest sanctioning body of Super Late Model racing in North America.

“Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre is excited to be able to help bring PASS racing to Petty International Raceway,” said Curry. “Racing has always been a passion of mine so it was an easy decision when I got the call from Craig McFetridge. Craig, Wayne Smith and all the people involved with Petty International Raceway do so much for this sport and the improvements can be seen in the facility every time you go there. Atlantic Canada is where we do business, so it makes sense to get involved in events held in all provinces. PASS racing was always checked off on my calendar when it came to Nova Scotia, so this will be a great event no doubt. It is one you will not want to miss!”

From the initial announcement of the event on the 2018 Pro All Stars Series schedule to the addition of the “Roads to Oxford and Richmond” program, race fans and track management have been alike have been counting the days until Saturday, June 2nd.

“Wayne and I have been working to bring PASS to Petty International Raceway for many years and to see this come to fruition is going be big for the greater Moncton and Maritime fan base,” said Craig McFetridge, co-owner of the track. “Allan Curry and all his staff have done such an amazing job building this company. To be able to showcase their brand, Atlantic Fleet Completion Centre, at Petty International Raceway in a very high profile event such as this is a great opportunity for us. This event cannot come soon enough.”
