Trackside Now: PASS South "South Carolina Clash"
Time Trials In, but Rain Postpones Features Until Sunday
Some of the big news from Friday's open practice session included Hunter Robbins' motor issues that forced him to pull out of the "South Carolina Clash" event.  While he was disappointed he had to pack up early and leave, Robbins did tell Speed51.com that he is looking forward to competing in the PASS South event at Peachstate Speedway in July. 

PASS South Points leader Ryan Lawler also suffered engine woes in practice Friday, but his Lawler Motorsports team swapped the engine out of their backup car and put it in their primary car early this morning and are ready to hit the track from practice. 

We'll have more from Anderson throughout the day, so stay tuned.

Saturday 1:00pm ET - Practice is underway for the Super Late Models, so far it has been incident free.   Several cars are still rolling through tech and their appears to be close to 30 cars in the garage area.

Saturday 11:50am ET - It's raceday here in Anderson, SC's Anderson Motor Speedway for round number-two of the PASS South Season - it's the second-annual "South Carolina Clash."

Teams are milling around, preparing their Super Late Models for the first PASS South practice session of the day, which is scheduled for 1pm.  The tech line has been the busiest place so far, as every one of the nearly 30 cars in attendance (an exact count and full roster will be available soon, once the teams have all unloaded from their trailers) has had to go through PASS South officials' fine-tooth combs before hitting the track.

The No, 5 of Peltier was fast again on Saturday at Anderson.  He claimed the top spot in qualifying.
Saturday 6:05pm ET - The remnants of Tropical Storm Barry were on a direct path with Anderson Motor Speedway Saturday, but all afternoon they seemed to be going astray and missing the track.  That changed shortly after practice wrapped up for the weekly divisions, when the skies opened up.  PASS South officials have made the call to call off the rest of the events for Saturday and try again on Sunday.  Every division that has time trialed, including the PASS South Super Late Models, will stand.  PASS heats and features for all divisions in attendance will resume at 2pm Sunday.

Pit gates open on Sunday at 12 noon, with racing to follow at 2pm, and the best news of all is that the forecast for Sunday in the Anderson area is picture-perfect.

Saturday 5:16pm ET - Practice for the local divisions is now over and the track is quiet until PASS South heats at 6pm.


Saturday 5:14pm ET - Qualifying for the 25-lap Redneck Racing Series feature is now over, and Kirby Allen has claimed the pole.  Fans are filing in, and the heat races for the PASS South Super Late Models are set to start at 6:00pm.

1. Kirby Allen - 18.838
2. Bobby Wallace - 18.973
