Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials are pleased to announce the release of the 2011 schedule for the PASS South Super Late Models. The schedule reflects the continued growth of the series with several new venues joining the list of premier facilities that PASS races at in the Southeast. The season will begin with PASS South’s first trip to the Anderson (SC) Motor Speedway since 2007. Track owner and promoter Sylvia Porter has made many improvements at the 47-year-old facility in Upstate South Carolina and will host the 2011 PASS South opener on Saturday, March 12. PASS South will stay in the Palmetto State for race number two returning to Ron Barfield’s Dillon (SC) Motor Speedway on Saturday, March 26 for the 6th Annual South Carolina Clash.
On April 7-9, PASS returns to the Historic North Wilkesboro Speedway in North Carolina for the first of two events there. Competitors from all across the country will race for 300 laps, paying $75,000 to the winner in the nation’s richest Super Late Model event. In addition, PASS competitors who meet the proper requirements could win $100,000. The Tour-type Modifieds will join the PASS South Super Late Models at North Wilkesboro in April for a 100 lap event paying $5,000 to win and $500 to start.
PASS South will make two trips to the Hickory Motor Speedway in 2011, including the 6th Annual Easter Bunny 150 on Saturday April 23rd for one of the biggest Super Late Model races of the season. For the first time, South Boston Speedway in Virginia will host two PASS South events in the same season on May 7 and August 20. Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC will once again host two events, including the season-ending Thanksgiving Classic November 25-26. Other premier tracks returning to the 2011 PASS South schedule after a few years being absent include the immaculate Motor Mile Speedway near Radford, VA on Saturday, May 28 and the state-of-the-art Gresham Motorsports Park in Georgia on Saturday, July 16. PASS South will be back at the high-banked Newport Speedway on Saturday, June 18. Two additional dates could be added by December 1 to complete the schedule.
“Without a doubt, this is by far the best schedule that we have been able to put together for our PASS South competitors,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “2011 will see the PASS South teams bring the most exciting form of Super Late Model racing in the country to some of the best facilities you will find anywhere in short track racing. We have a great mix of tracks and I want to thank all the track operators for their cooperation in putting together one of the most stellar schedules in touring division racing. It should be challenging, yet fun for all of our talented competitors.”
