CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Pro All Stars Series officials have announced several dates on the PASS South Super Late Model schedule for 2018.
With seven dates confirmed, the PASS South Super Late Models will compete at five different venues over the course of the season, with one date left to confirm and up to two more events possibly to be announced by mid-January.
“We believe this schedule should work well for our racers in and outside the southeast region in 2018,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “We realize everyone is busy and we have worked very hard to avoid any conflicts with other series or track schedules. We’re very appreciative for all of our enthusiastic track owners that have partnered with us again for our 13th season of racing in the South. We’ve got several big things on the burner for next year and are excited for the possibilities.”
The season will start on Feb. 23-24 at Dillon Motor Speedway with the 13th annual South Carolina Clash. After a very competitive race last year, the 200-lap event will once again be the first event of the PASS National Championship Series.
The PASS South Super Late Models will then move to the Tarheel State for the 13th annual Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway on Saturday, March 31. The Easter Bunny 150 is expected to attract some of the top short track racers in the country for one of the most sought after trophies in the sport.
In May, the series will move to one of the fastest and most unique tracks in the country. PASS will expand its relationship with Concord Speedway by again hosting the Old Glory 125 on Friday night, May 25 as part of the big Memorial Day weekend festivities in the Charlotte area.
The triangular half-mile, known for its legendary Big 10 Series, will once again also see the PASS South Super Late Models as part of the 16th annual North-South Shootout on Nov. 9-10.
Additionally, PASS will be the exclusive sanctioning body for super late models at Concord Speedway in 2018.
The PASS South super late models will also return to two of the Mid-Atlantic’s most exciting speedways in 2018 with a pair of 150 lappers. Orange County Speedway will host the series on Saturday night, July, 21 before the tour moves to South Boston Speedway on Saturday night, Aug. 11 for a twin bill with the NASCAR Late Model Stocks.
PASS will close out the season by crowning the series champion at the 13th annual Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 200 at Hickory Motor Speedway on Saturday, Nov. 17. Final confirmation for any other dates will be released by Jan. 20.
Look for the release of the schedule for the PASS North Super Late Models and the remainder of the PASS National Championship Series dates in the near future.
