CHARLOTTE, N.C. – official release — Adam Fenwick photo — The Pro All Stars Series released its 2015 schedule for the PASS South Super Late Models on Sunday.

The 10th Anniversary season for the South’s top short track series will be highlighted by the return of stock car racing to the triangular shaped, half-mile Concord (N.C.) Speedway on Memorial Day weekend and by the move of the Mason Dixon Meltdown to the legendary Hickory Motor Speedway for the first time in series history.

With 15 dates confirmed and an additional date to possibly be added in September, the PASS South Super Late Models will compete at 11 different venues over the course of the 2015 season.

“We are very pleased to be able to release our 2015 PASS South Super Late Model schedule at such an early date and hope that will help our fans and competitors as they prepare for next season,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “We’re very excited and honored that the PASS South Super Late Models will be bringing new life to Concord Speedway on Memorial Day weekend. Additionally, Hickory Motor Speedway has been at the heart of the series since it started in 2006 and we look forward to capping off our 10th Anniversary season there in November. All in all, we’ve got a great group of tracks returning to the schedule next year and are excited for the possibilities.”

For the fifth time in the last seven years, the 2015 PASS South Super Late Model season will kickoff on Saturday, March 7th with the 10th Annual South Carolina Clash at Dillon Motor Speedway. The series will then travel north on Interstate 95 for the first of three PASS South Super Late Model events to be hosted by Southern National Motorsports Park in Lucama, N.C. on Saturday, March 21. The series will return to Southern National again on Saturday, July 18, while the Fall race at the 4/10 mile speedway will move up to Saturday, Sept. 27.

Hickory, the longest tenured facility on the PASS South circuit, will also host two of the premier events in short track racing in 2015. The 10th Annual Easter Bunny 150 will bring some of the best racers in North America together again on Saturday, April 4.

And, for the first time since its inception, championships will be decided on Saturday, Nov. 21 when the 10th Annual Mason Dixon Meltdown 200 lap event moves to Hickory Motor Speedway in 2015.

Two of the premier short track facilities in the South will rejoin the PASS South Super Late Model schedule in 2015. Myrtle Beach Speedway will host the series on Saturday, April 25 and Anderson Motor Speedway returns to the schedule for the first time since 2012 for the Electric City 125 on Friday, June 19.

An event sure to attract the attention of racers and fans alike will be the PASS South Super Late Model return to Concord Speedway on Saturday, May 23. The famed half-mile, known for its legendary Big 10 Series, has sat quite since PASS South held the Mason Dixon Meltdown there in 2012. Nearly three years later, the speedway will come to life again on Memorial Day Weekend 2015.

South Boston Speedway will again host two popular weekends of racing that see the PASS South Late Models on a stout racing card coupled with Twin 75’s for the NASCAR Late Model Stocks and Legends cars on June 6 and Aug. 15.

Greenville-Pickens Speedway, which first began hosting stock car events in 1946 and was once a hotbed for Super Late Model racing, will again host the Firecracker 125 on Friday, July 3. That event successfully returned to Greenville-Pickens in 2014 after originally being held there from 2008-2010.

Orange County Speedway, a favorite of many PASS South Super Late Model competitors, returns for a tenth straight year with the Orange Blossom Special on Oct. 17. Caraway Speedway will welcome the PASS South Super Late Models back on Saturday, Nov. 7 as part of the North-South Shootout along with the Tour-type Modifieds.
