NAPLES, Maine – official series release — NHMS photo —
Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry and officials from New Hampshire Motor Speedway, along with Bob Guptill of the New England Mini Stock Tour (NEMST), announced today the addition of a historic Super Late Model event at the famed New England oval.
PASS Super Late Models will tackle the 1-mile superspeedway for the first time ever on July 4-5. New Hampshire Motor Speedway will supplant North Carolina’s .625 mile North Wilkesboro Speedway as the largest speedway the PASS Super Late Models have ever competed on.
The PASS event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway becomes the fifth race announced of the 2015 PASS National Championship Series joining the Peach Blossom Special at Anderson (S.C.) Motor Speedway, the Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway, a 200 lapper at Plattsburgh, New York’s Airborne Park Speedway, and the 42nd annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains (Maine) Speedway.
“We could not be more thrilled than to announce this historic partnership with the folks at New Hampshire Motor Speedway,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “This event really came together in a short period of time, but we wanted to make sure our fans and competitors knew as soon as possible. We will have much more information about the race coming out within the next couple of weeks”
The race will likely be 50-75 laps long, with a final determination slated to come following a scheduled Hoosier Tire test for PASS at the speedway in May.
In addition to being part of the PASS National Championship Series, the New Hampshire event will also be a PASS North Super Late Model points race as well. However, PASS North teams will now have the option to drop their lowest finish during the 2015 season.
Joining the PASS Super Late Models at New Hampshire Motor Speedway July 4 – 5 will be the NEMST Mini Stocks racing for 30 laps and a Super Sportsman race featuring “open” rules slated for 35 laps.
All divisions will be allowed to practice on Saturday, July 4, with an additional practice session scheduled for Sunday, July 5. Racing action will get under way at 2 PM Sunday, July 5 with the PASS Super Late Models going green at approximately 4 PM.
