Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown
To Be Broadcast
on MAVTV
NAPLES, ME - One of the nation’s most prestigious Super Late Model races will be making its way to a national television network in 2017. The 44th Annual Oxford 250 will air on a tape-delayed broadcast to race fans nationwide on the MAVTV network.

Officials from the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) and MAVTV made the announcement on Wednesday afternoon in advance of the August 27 race at Oxford Plains Speedway (ME).

“The Oxford 250 is the biggest single day event in short track racing and we are glad even more people will be able to experience all the excitement and tremendous racing on MAVTV,” said Tom Mayberry, President of the Pro All-Stars Series. “This is a great opportunity to expose PASS and Oxford Plains Speedway to an even wider audience across the country and, as racers, we believe MAVTV provides us with the perfect platform to do just that.”

MAVTV, an American cable and satellite television channel owned by the automotive lubricant company Lucas Oil, has become the go-to channel for short track racing events in recent years. The company produces full race broadcasts for series such as the ARCA Racing Series, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series, Lucas Oil Modified Series and many more.

Now MAVTV adds one of the nation’s richest and most prestigious pavement short track races to their broadcast schedule.

Speed51.com, the nation’s leading short track racing news site, will handle the production of the television broadcast. The company is owned by MAVTV broadcaster Bob Dillner.

“We are very excited to add the Pro All-Stars Series to the MAVTV lineup,” stated Jason Patison, Director of Programming for MAVTV. “ The caliber and quantity of teams in the series offers fans some of the best short track racing in the country, and we are confident in Bob Dillner and Speed51's ability to deliver top-notch television coverage of the event.”

The Oxford 250 is considered one of the crown jewels of asphalt Super Late Model racing. With more than $25,000 going to the winner of the race, more than 70 cars are expected to attempt to qualify for the 250-lap main event.

A unique qualifying format that includes a pre-qualifying draw and qualifying heat races provides fans with edge-of-their-seat entertainment during qualifying heats and consolation races. When the green flag waves for the feature, the gloves are off as the fastest full-bodied cars in the Northeast race hard to win New England’s version of the Daytona 500.

The air date for the 44th Annual Oxford 350 on MAVTV will be announced at a later time.

With the addition of a nationally televised broadcast to the race, marketing opportunities will be at a premium. Those interested in marketing partnerships with the Pro All Stars Series and Oxford 250 are encouraged to email Alan Dietz at alandietzpass@live.com.

Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown
PASS Announces Mason-Dixon
MegaMeltdown 300 for
November at Hickory
Inaugural 300 lap Super Late Model race at Hickory; race winner could take home $22,500.
-
A PASS National Championship Event.
CHARLOTTE, NC (January 20) - Officials from the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) announced today a major adjustment to the 2017 racing schedule. The PASS Super Late Models will stage a 300 green flag lap event on Saturday, November 18th at the legendary Hickory Motor Speedway. The Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown will be highlighted by live pit stops and will feature a nearly $70,000 total purse. The race will pay $15,000 to the winner and $1,000 to start, plus there will be an additional $25 per lap awarded to the race leader, which could push the winner's total to $22,500. The event will now be the final race of the PASS National Championship Series, joining other national races at Dillon Motor Speedway, Orange County Speedway, the Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory, Thompson Speedway, Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, and the 44th Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.

The Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown will be the Mid-Atlantic region's highest paying Super Late Model race and richest since PASS staged a 300 lapper at North Wilkesboro Speedway in 2011. Additionally, the PASS event scheduled for September 23rd at Hickory will now be eliminated due to the recent announcement of Martinsville Speedway's Late Model Stock race being scheduled for that weekend.

"For quite some time, we have thought there was a place for an Oxford 250-style event in the South, and that time is now," said PASS President Tom Mayberry after a teleconference with potential sponsors today. "Hickory has a history that is second to none in short track racing and we believe the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown will build on that legacy for years to come. Hickory is similar in length to Oxford Plains and we believe this race has the potential to join short track racing's crown jewels starting this year."

From its early days in the 1950's as a dirt track to today, Hickory Motor Speedway has seen some of stock car racing's most legendary drivers including Junior Johnson, Ned and Dale Jarrett, Harry Gant, and three generations of Earnhardts. In 2006, PASS became the South's original Super Late Model tour when the green flag dropped for the inaugural Easter Bunny 150. Since then, PASS has become the nation's most successful Super Late Model sanctioning body and the Easter Bunny 150 has grown to become the Spring's biggest short track event.
"When you look at the great drivers that race in PASS North from New England like Johnny Clark, Ben Rowe, Travis Benjamin and so many others and the great group of young PASS South drivers like Tate Fogleman, Matt Craig, Kodie Conner and those guys, this is the type of event that they want to win and be a part of for a long time," said Mayberry. "You take those competitors, along with all the other great Super Late Model drivers from the Midwest, West Coast, Quebec and the Canadian Maritimes...this is gonna be one heck of a show come November."

At 300 green flag laps, the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown will feature true, live pit stops and strategy throughout the race. The event will be a "10 tire race," meaning competitors will have the four tires they start the race on and will have the option, but are not required, to change six tires during the course of the race. Since caution laps do not count, teams would not lose laps during a pit stop under caution.

The field will be set by qualifying, with the top 20 qualifiers being locked in, three each will come from the three last chance races, and additional starters will be determined from the last chance consolation race. There will be six provisional spots available for PASS National, PASS South, PASS North, and a promoter's option for licensed drivers that pre-register. Sponsors and fans are encouraged to purchase laps for just $25. They will be mentioned several times during the course of the weekend and will have the honor of knowing that they are a part of this historic event.

Although a full schedule has not been posted, teams will have the opportunity to practice on Thursday, November, 16th, qualifying and last chance races will take place following practice at 6 PM on Friday, November 17th, and the Mason-Dixon Meltdown will go green on Saturday afternoon, November 18th at 1:30 PM.

The 2017 PASS South Super Late Model season will kick off its 11 race schedule on Saturday, February 4th with the PASS Winter Meltdown at Dillon Motor Speedway.

Entry forms, the complete weekend schedule, and a lap board for the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown at Hickory Motor Speedway will be posted soon at ProAllStarsSeries.com. The 2017 license forms for the PASS Super Late Models are also available at ProAllStarsSeries.com. Drivers purchasing licenses for the 2017 season will receive bonus points for each race they are pre-registered for and will also save money towards any events that they enter early.

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as the Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Curtis Gerry wins PASS Super Late
Model race at Oxford Plains Speedway,
Travis Benjamin earns second
PASS North Championship
Oxford, ME -- Curtis Gerry of Waterboro nailed down his second PASS Super Late Model win this season at Oxford Plains Speedway Saturday afternoon, while his closest on-track rival, Travis Benjamin of Belfast, riding a runner-up finish to nail down his second career PASS North championship.

Gerry, who added his name to the lists of Legends by winning the 44th Annual Oxford 250 back in August, had the best season of his career hot on the heels of what was previously his best year ever in 2016.

The Saco House of Pizza #7 and Gerry methodically cruised into contention from 12th starting position as Ben Rowe, Tracy Gordon, Dave Farrington and Joey Doiron took turns setting the race pace, with Brandon Barker also a notable early factor.

Benjamin, steering the Petit Motorsports Weirs GMC / Fisher Snowplows 7, is now a two-time winner of both the PASS North title and the annual Oxford 250 Classic. He lined up one spot behind race winner Gerry, finishing 1.58-seconds behind him under the checkered flag.

2016 PASS North champion DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire filled out the podium aboard the Precision JLM / Dale Shaw Race Cars 60. Reid Lanpher of Manchester and Berwick's Doiron filled out the top five rundown.

Sixth through tenth in the finishing order were Hudson, New Hampshire's Derek Griffith, Glen Luce of Turner, Scott Robbins of Dixfield, early frontrunner Gordon, of Strong and 2016 Oxford 250 champion Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, New Hampshire.

Doiron, Ben Rowe, Gerry and Benjamin won 15-lap PASS Super Late Model heat races. John Peters of Westbrook and Maine Hall of Famer Mie Rowe of Turner aced the 15-lap last chance qualifiers.

Mark Lundblad, Jr. of Conway, New Hampshire raced to a career-first victory in the 40-lap PASS Mods main event, a rare, non-stop affair for the increasingly-popular open-wheel class. Lundblad started fourth and took command from Windham's Matty Sanborn, who led a healthy chunk of the main event before Lundblad took over.

Windham's Jimmy Emerson made an impressive, three-wide move to claim runner-up honors ahead of Sanborn, wrapping up his finest campaign with a little help from his many friends. Bruce Helmuth raced hard en route to a fourth-place finish.

Ben Tinker of New Gloucester rounded out the top-five, preserving his perfect record this season in that department on his way to the 2017 PASS Mods championship. In thirteen starts, Tinker won seven times.

Tyler King of Livermore coasted to victory lane once in front of the field after chasing Turner's Matt Dufault for the first half of the 50-lap finale to the Street Stock Quad Series. King could not seem to find a a way by Dufault under green-flag racing conditions early on, then powered away on a mid-race restart to leave no doubt on this afternoon.

Billy Childs, Jr., of Leeds, was the best of the rest, wrapping up a track championship season almost as well as possible. Andrew Breton of Greene wrapped up his best season with a late charge good enough to earn third-place hardware in victory lane.

Bryce Mains kicked up some dust with a fourth-place finish, and the Bridgton driver knew that was enough to nail down the 2017 Street Stock Quad Series crown, putting an exclamation point in his best-ever campaign. Teammate Dufault filled out the top five.

Casey Call of Pembroke, New Hampshire is building a good collection of trophies on his visits to Oxford Plains Speedway, and on Saturday it was the big one as the 14-year-old outran fellow teen racer Trenton Goodrow of Carver, Massachusetts by a comfortable margin in the 25-lap Legends Cars main event.

Parker Varney of Windham, Gray's Kevin Oliver and Colby Meserve of Windham rounded out the top five. Defending track champion Austin Teras was in Las Vegas for Legends Cars National Championship action. Teras and the Jay Cushman team had built a sufficient margin in the championship standing to earn this year's title despite, understandably, skipping the final race.

Jamie Heath of Waterford led all the way, though definitely feeling pressure much of the time, to win both the 25-lap Bandits division race and the 2017 Bandits Triple Crown Series title. Heath was challenged most of the way by fellow former division champion Shaun Hinckley of Oxford, but it was Turner's Tyler Green claiming runner-up honors as the checkered flag waved. Hinkley did join Heath and Green o0n the podium, with the top-five rundown completed by Kyle Hewins of Leeds and the Tornado, Travis Verrill of South Paris.

PASS MegaMeltdown At Hickory
Expands To Include
Must See Racing Sprint Cars
CHARLOTTE, NC (October 6) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry is pleased to announce that the 12th Annual Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 weekend at Hickory Motor Speedway will expand to include the Must See Racing Sprint Cars. The MegaMeltdown will be the final PASS National Championship Series race of the year and will feature the best Super Late Model racers from across North America as they compete for over $15,000 to win. And, for the first time ever, the MAV TV cameras will be rolling as the MegaMeltdown will be televised, flag-to-flag for a nationwide audience. For the Must See Racing Sprints, the event is shaping up to be a showdown, pitting the best winged Sprint Car racers from the Midwest against some of the South's top asphalt racers.

"The MegaMeltdown is already getting a great response from racers and fans across the country and looks like it will be one of the biggest races of the year," said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "The addition of the Must See Racing Sprint Cars only adds to this great event. It will give our stock car fans the chance to not only see Winged Sprint Cars race on asphalt, but it will also give them a glimpse of some of the fastest cars to race on short tracks period. These guys have been setting track records everywhere they go and I wouldn't be surprised at all to see them do the same at Hickory again."

In 2015, Must See Racing joined PASS for their first ever event at the legendary Hickory Motor Speedway. This year's MegaMeltdown weekend will close out the 2017 season for the Midwest's best asphalt Winged Sprint Car drivers as they get set to compete against some of the South's best "Winged Warriors." The MegaMeltdown will pit the top Southern and Northern winged pavement sprint car drivers head-to-head for the final time this year. This event could prove to be one of the biggest pavement sprint car events ever held in the South. In addition, the event is expected to draw the top pavement sprint cars drivers from across the nation.

"We are delighted to be back at Hickory Motor Speedway again and excited to be able to work with Tom Mayberry and the staff with PASS to bring 'The Fastest Short Track Cars In The World' to one of the biggest weekends of short track racing in the southeast," said Must See Racing founder and president Jim Hanks. "Hickory has always been a favorite venue of our drivers and teams and we look forward to a fantastic show as we close out our season and crown our two division champions for the year in one action packed weekend of racing."

Entry forms and the complete weekend schedule for upcoming events at Oxford Plains Speedway, Orange County Speedway, and Hickory Motor Speedway are now posted at ProAllStarsSeries.com.

Hickory Will Be The Great Equalizer
As Teams Eye Big Purse
For MegaMeltdown 300
CHARLOTTE, NC (September 28) - With just under two months left until the revitalized Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 at Hickory Motor Speedway, Pro All Star Series (PASS) Super Late Model teams from across the continent are already making preparations for the $15,000 to win event.

Over 20 teams have already entered for what many believe could be the biggest "new" event of the year. As they prepare, many questions loom as to what engine combination teams will utilize to tame Hickory's tricky surface for 300 green flag laps. Both "built" and "crate" engines have found success at Hickory since PASS began racing there in 2006. Where the "builts" have a power advantage pumping out over 600 horsepower, the "crates" with less horsepower, also could have less tire wear proving critical to pit strategy late in the race.

Summerland, British Columbia's Sarah Cornett-Ching has been successful in her rookie season racing PASS South Super Late Models, currently sitting sixth in the standings with three top ten finishes. And, those strong runs have all been while utilizing a "crate" motor.

"We have had success this year running 'crates' at the longer races where the 'built' motors start falling off the pace due to tire wear," says Cornett-Ching. "I think a 'crate' can easily run in the top three with the tire management factor in such a long race at a rough abrasive track like Hickory."

In the last four PASS Super Late Model races at Hickory, both engine combinations have found success and are evenly split in the win column. Maine's Ben Rowe dominated the 2016 Easter Bunny 150 driving a 'crate' engine car and has frequently started outside the top 20 at Hickory, only to be a threat for the win late in the race. In the next race at Hickory in June, Georgia's Chris Dilbeck took his first career PASS win driving a 'crate,' the combination he plans to utilize again in November. But, in the last two PASS races at Hickory, the 'builts' have proven to be the way to go with Tate Fogleman winning last September and Preston Peltier taking the win in the Easter Bunny 150 this year. Cornett-Ching thinks there are benefits to both engine combinations that should make the MegaMeltdown a race for the ages.

"We are working on our big motor program now, especially with how it ran last time out at South Boston," said Cornett-Ching. "It's all about how well your car is setup and how hard you have to drive to stay on the lead lap. Hopefully we will be there with those guys when we get to Hickory."

Score is Second PASS Super

Late Model Win This Season for
Derek Griffith
North Woodstock, NH -- Derek Griffith of Hudson, New Hampshire raced to his second Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model victory of the season Saturday night in the 150-lap event topping the racing car at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire.

To earn this trip to the winners' circle Griffith needed to take command of the race from Ben Rowe, the reigning PASS Super Late Model National Champion who is no stranger to victory lane at the high-banked, quarter-mile oval.

Griffith's LCM Motorsports #12 was chased under the checkered flag by Travis Benjamin of Morrill, Maine. Benjamin vaulted into the PASS North Super Late Model championship points lead with his runner-up finish aboard the Petit Motorsports #7.

Rowe ended up third in the Richard Moody #4n, with his teammate, Trevor Sanborn of East Parsonsfield, Maine, close behind in the #44. Six-time PASS North Super Late Model champion Johnny Clark #54 of Farmingdale, Maine swapped the race lead with Rowe during the event's early laps before posting a fifth-place finish.

Bruce Helmuth of Wales, Maine claimed a career-first PASS Modified victory in a wild 40-lap race for the open-wheel class with an unusual amount of carnage and destruction evident.

Helmuth, who has a mantle full of second and third-place PASS Mod trophies and is only a couple of points out of second-place in the Mod standings this year, inherited the race lead when Conway, New Hampshire's Gary Shackford was deemed by officials to be forced from the position by Bruce Carignan of Lebanon, Maine.

Carignan and Shackford went to the back of the restart lineup, then Helmuth outgunned Conway's Mark Lunblad, Jr., racing to victory ahead of Lundblad and points leader Ben Tinker of New Gloucester, suffering through his worst performance of the season while posting his 12th top-three finish in 12 races.

Steven Jones of Saco, Maine led the 40-lappers opening stages before settling for a fourth-place finish with Shackford bouncing back from his bouncing from the lead with a fifth-place finish.

David Whittier of West Poland, Maine prevailed in a thriller, waiting until the final turn on the final lap to pull off his winning move in a 50-lap open race for Street Stocks. Whittier, a successful Oxford Plains Speedway regular, won a 75-lap race for his first-ever score at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on the previous weekend.

At White Mountain Motorsports Park, sixth-place starter Whittier raced most of the distance behind the new track champion at his home oval, polesitter Billy Childs, Jr. of Leeds, Maine. Testing every groove and angle for a couple of laps before his last-lap charge, Whittier edged Childs by mere inches under the checkered flag. Runner-up Childs led 49.9 laps, unofficially.

Tyler King of Livermore, Maine started 13th in the 50-lapper and steady progress throughout the race netted a third-place finish in a relatively trouble-free Street Stock performance. 'Mad' Max Dolliver of Londonderry, New Hampshire was fourth across the finish line, followed by Buxton, Maine's Nathan Leavitt.

Austin Teras of Windham, Maine kept his National Championship hopes alive in the Legends Cars class, holding off a determined Casey Call of Pembroke, New Hampshire in a hotly-contested, 25-lap race. Teras is still in contention for the Young Lions nationwide title.

Kevin Girard of Saco, Maine was third and tops among those old enough to be licensed to drive motor vehicles on public roads. Noah Korner from Bloomfield, Connecticut and Ryan Doucette from Framingham, Massachusetts rounded out the top five in Legends Cars competition.

Jamie Heath of Waterford, Maine nailed down his second straight victory in the three-race Bandits Triple Crown Series, holding off a hard-charging Adam Sanborn of West Paris, Maine in a 25-lap race for the stock four-cylinder-powered racing class. For Heath, the 2016 Bandits division champion at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway, it was his tenth feature race win of the year.

Tyler Green of Turner, Maine joined Heath and Sanborn on the podium after winning a race-long battle versus Kyle Hewins of Leeds, Maine. Auburn's Scott Jordan won his heat race and battled with Heath for the early lead before eventually finishing in fifth position. Heath also won a heat race in earlier Bandits action.

The 2017 Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model and Mod seasons come to a close at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 14 at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine. Street Stocks, Legends Cars and Bandits will also see action on that racing card. For more information please visit proallstarsseries.com or call (207) 539-8865.

Spectacular PASS Super Late Model
Score for Hometown Racer Garrett Hall
at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway
Scarborough, Maine - Garrett Hall of Scarborough prevailed in spectacular fashion Sunday afternoon in Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model competition, just beating out nine-time PASS champion Ben Rowe of Turner in a wild finish that saw Hall's car need a tow to Beech Ridge Motor Speedway victory lane.

Hall, who was seeming unbeatable on long green flag runs during the second half of the 150-lap race, saw a trio of late-race restarts put both Rowe and the reigning PASS Super Late Model champion, DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire, in contention.

Rowe took an aggressive run on the inside of Hall on the final lap and wheels were in the air as Hall's defense of the lead was good enough by a margin of .012-seconds. It was the first Pro All Stars Series victory of the season for Hall and the Risbarra Construction / Blackpoint Motorsports 94. He won three races on the tour last year.

Rowe, in championship contention despite going winless thus far in 2017, was the runner-up aboard the Richard Moody Builders 4. Defending Series champion Shaw was third in the Precision JLM 60. Both Shaw and Travis Benjamin, who finished fourth, battle back after the race's first major altercation, which eliminated recent Beech Ridge and current Oxford 250 champion Curtis Gerry of Waterboro.

Alan Tardiff of Lyman, who just wrapped up the Super Late Model championship at Oxford Plains Speedway, rounded out the top five. Derek Griffith, Glen Luce, Donnie Colpritt, Dan McKeage and Mike Rowe filled out the top-ten rundown. Early frontrunner Reid Lanpher of Manchester ended up 16th after late-race difficulties.

Jimmy Emerson of Windham scored an emotional victory in the 40-lap PASS Mod race. It was the second victory this season for the veteran racer, but his first since joining the PASS touring class at what has been his home racetrack since the dirt days more than three decades ago.

Championship leader Ben Tinker of New Gloucester chased Emerson through most of the race and earned runner-up honors, in front of Mark Lundblad, Jr. of Conway, New Hampshire. Lebanon's Mike Carignan and Matty Sanborn of Windham rounded out the top five.

David Whittier of West Poland raced to his first-ever Beech Ridge Motor Speedway win in the 75-lap Quad Series race for Street Stocks. Whittier raced second in the race's early laps before taking the lead away from Quad Series points leader Bryce Mains of Bridgton, who had wrecked his car in a Saturday practice session.

Mains held off the rest of the field to claim runner-up honors as Whittier dominated the second half of the race. Tyler King of Livermore charged from deep in the field to claim a well-earned, third-place finish. Kyle Hewins of Leeds was fourth, followed by 2017 Oxford Plains Speedway champion Billy Childs, Jr., of Leeds.

Terry Merrill of Saco was dominant in a 50-lap special event for the Sport Series cars competing weekly in the track's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Merrill started eighth and moved into contention quickly, eventually outrunning Scarborough's Richard Pelton to the checkered flag. Benton's Barry Poulin crossed the finish line in fourth position, followed by the event's early racesetter, Ryan Villacci of Falmouth.

The next Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model race is scheduled for Saturday, September 23 at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire. For more information please visit proallstarsseries.com or call (207) 539-8865.

Matt Craig Continues PASS South
Dominance At South Boston
SOUTH BOSTON, VA (September 16) - Matt Craig took the lead just shy of halfway and led the rest of the way to win the South Boston 150 Saturday night at South Boston Speedway. Craig's fifth Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model win of the season and the sixth of his career further extends his lead in the championship as he seeks to become the first two-time champion in series history.

"Unbelievable season, I can't thank everybody enough, all my guys have worked so hard on the car all year long," said Craig, driver of the C&C Boilers Sales and Service Chevrolet #54. "The track is so fast and so fun and we just had a great race. It's just been an awesome year."

The 2015 PASS South Super Late Model champion, Tate Fogleman, started on the pole and jumped out to a sizeable advantage over the rest of the field at the start. Trevor Noles flexed his muscle in the early stages, tapping Brandon Setzer to move into second on lap 15. Ryan Moore looked to have a good run going, but slowed with a suspension problem on lap 27.

The first caution of the night would not wave until lap 54 when Sarah Cornett-Ching slammed the turn three wall while running eighth. Back under green, both Noles and Craig were able to move past Fogleman and into the lead. Fogleman's night would end a few laps later when he spun in turn four due to a rear end problem.

On the restart, Craig would get the advantage over Noles to take the lead in turn one. Local favorite Austin Thaxton's strong third place run came to an end on lap 76 with an apparent engine problem.

After several exciting moments negotiating lapped traffic, Craig was able to hold off Noles for the win over Dave Farrington, Jr., Jared Fryar, and Jay Fogleman. Rounding out the top ten were Kodie Conner, Roy Hayes, JP Josiasse, Tim Pinion, and Thaxton.

The PASS South Super Late Models will be again in action on Saturday, October 21 for 150 laps at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC, along with the SMRS Tour Modifieds and Limited Sportsman.

Curtis Gerry Wins 44th OXFORD 250,
Scores $35,000.00 PLUS
Oxford, ME -- Curtis Gerry of Waterboro dominated when go time came, scoring the biggest racing victory of his career Sunday in the 44th annual Oxford 250 at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway. With lap leader bonuses included, Gerry's win should be worth over $35,000.

Gerry, who lined up 21st on the starting grid, needed 123 laps to chase down early race leader Cassius Clark in Rollie MacDonald's 13. A round of pit stops saw Scott McDaniel earn some lap leader bonus cash for 26 laps before Gerry took command for good with just over 50 laps to go.

Manchseter's Reid Lanpher made a late charge into second position, claiming runner-up honors for the second time in the Oxford 250. Cassius Clark flat-footed the King 13 to a third-place finish, making a five-figure lap leader bonus check to add to the trophy payoff.

Eddie MacDonald blazed a difficult trail to his fourth-place finish after an apparent heat race victory was negated in post-race tech. 'The Outlaw' from Rowley, Massachusetts needed a provisional starting spot to get in the 250, and was 38th on the grid when the green flag waved to start the main event.

Maine Racing Hall of Famer Mike Rowe of Turner, at age 67, raced to a top-five finish in the region's top full-bodied racing class, in their biggest event of the season. Starting 41st, the man who is by far the most prolific winner in the history of Oxford Plains Speedway, schooled a racer or two en route to the checkered flag.

Wayne Helliwell, Jr., of Dover, New Hampshire - the defending champion of the Oxford 250, was sixth under the checkered flag. Derek Ramstrom of West Boylston, Massachusetts battled his share of adversity and finished in seventh place. Garrett Hall of Scarborough was eighth and proved to be a contender.

McDaniel ended up in ninth position, scoring his best-ever racing payday after lap leader cash is factored in. Alan Tardiff of Lyman rounded out the top ten, just ahead of six-time PASS North Super Late Model champion Johnny Clark of Farmingdale.

They know who he is now in the grandstand. Jeremy Davis of Tamworth, New Hampshire made a last-lap move from third to first, winning the 50-lap last chance race to nail down the 44th and final starting spot to the 44th annual Oxford 250.

For more than half the race two-time Late Model track champion Dennis Spencer was racing hard versus Hall-of-Fame seven-time champ and all-time top OPS winner Mike Rowe from Turner. That tandem spent most of the race less than a car length apart, but a little last-lap bumping and grinding found Davis getting to the checkered flag first.

Spencer was second at the line, with Rowe third, and while Spencer was done for the night, Rowe's night was far from over. Connecticut's Ray Christian III wrapped up a decent weekend for a Super Late Model newcomer in fourth spot. Kyle Hewins of Leeds, in just his fourth Super Late Model start, rounded out the top five.

Ben Tinker of New Gloucester broke a three-race losing streak in PASS Mod competition on Saturday night, and on 250 Sunday he completed the weekend sweep in the open-wheel class, winning for the seventh time this season and extending his already-impressive championship points lead. 

Bruce Helmuth of Wales built a big early lead and may have had a shot at outrunning Tinker if not for caution periods and the resultant restarts. Helmuth was the runner-up, with Steve Dickey, Jr. of Milford, New Hampshire filling out the podium in his best PASS mod run to date.

BEN TINKER TAKES THE WIN
AT SATURDAY PASS MODS RACE

Marketing Opportunities Still Available
For MAV TV’s Coverage Of Oxford 250
NAPLES, ME (July 18) - In just over a month, an action-pcked weekend of short track racing will commence with the 44th Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway. And, for the first time in the event's long history, the two-hour broadcast will air at a later date, tape-delayed to a national audience on MAV TV.

While inventory is limited, there are still some opportunities available to become involved in this groundbreaking broadcast. A wide range of very affordable marketing opportunities are still available for companies looking to get involved with the biggest single day short track event in America.

Title sponsorship and presenting sponsorship of the broadcast are an option for companies looking to make a big splash in the racing world. Commercial packages, a limited number of in-car cameras, and in-race element sponsorships are also available to give a sponsor maximum exposure.

And, since MAV TV will also be broadcasting the season-ending Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 at Hickory Motor Speedway in November, specials are available for companies that are interested in advertising on both nationally televised PASS events.

MAVTV, an American cable and satellite television channel owned by the automotive lubricant company Lucas Oil, has become the go-to channel for short track racing events in recent years. The company produces full race broadcasts for series such as the ARCA Racing Series, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series, Lucas Oil Modified Series and many more.

Speed51.com, the nation's leading short track racing news site, will handle the production of the television broadcast. The company is owned by MAVTV broadcaster Bob Dillner.

The Oxford 250 is considered one of the crown jewels of asphalt Super Late Model racing. With more than $25,000 going to the winner of the race, more than 70 cars are expected to attempt to qualify for the 250-lap main event.

A unique qualifying format that includes a pre-qualifying draw and qualifying heat races provides fans with edge-of-their-seat entertainment during qualifying heats and consolation races. When the green flag waves for the feature, the gloves are off as the fastest full-bodied cars in the Northeast race hard to win New England's version of the Daytona 500.

With the addition of a nationally televised broadcast to the race, marketing opportunities will be at a premium. Those interested in marketing partnerships with the Pro All Stars Series, Oxford 250, or Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 are encouraged to email Alan Dietz at alandietzpass@live.com.

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as the legendary HP Hood Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway and PASS South's Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway.

November 18, 2017
300 Laps
Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown
PASS Releases Entry Form And
Schedule For $15,000 To Win
MegaMeltdown At Hickory
NAPLES, ME (May 9) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials announced today that Super Late Model entry forms and the complete weekend schedule for November's Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 at Hickory Motor Speedway are now available online at ProAllStarsSeries.com. The MegaMeltdown will go green on Saturday afternoon, November 18 at 3 PM and will serve as the final race of 2017, crowning both the PASS National Champion and PASS South Super Late Model Champion. Teams can save money towards their entry with an early entry discount available until August 1.

| Entry Form - 300 - 11-18-17 |

| Event Schedule - 300 - 11-18-17 |

| 11-18-17 "300" Lap Board |


The Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 will be bigger than ever in 2017, featuring more laps, more money, and the chance for teams to employ pit strategy. The PASS Super Late Models will compete for 300 green flag laps, with $15,000 up for grabs for the winner and $1000 to start. With additional lap leader bonus money, the winner could take home over $22,000.

Teams will also have the opportunity to make live pit stops during the course of the event and will have the option to change up to six tires throughout the race. And, similar to the Oxford 250, since caution laps will not count, teams can avoid the pressure of having to bring in "specialized" pit crews. The Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 continues to build on PASS's rich history of racing Super Late Models in the south, which has seen this event, originally billed as the Meltdown starting in 2006, held at such tracks as South Boston Speedway, Concord Speedway, and Southern National Motorsports Park. The more expanded MegaMeltdown joins another PASS-sanctioned event, the Oxford 250, as one of two of the highest paying short track races in the country, with combined purses of nearly $200,000.

"The Meltdown started a number of years ago and we're excited to bring this expanded version to Hickory in 2017," said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "The new MegaMeltdown provides us the opportunity to have an Oxford 250-style event in the south, which will pay big money across the board and feature live pit stops. Ever since this race was announced in January, teams started booking hotel rooms in the Hickory area. The great success of the Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory proved that the time was right to release the MegaMeltdown entry forms and is our way to show how serious we are about this big race."

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as the Easter Bunny 150 and Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown at Hickory Motor Speedway and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.

PASS North Season Opener To Be Part Of Prestigious Icebreaker Weekend At Thompson Speedway In April

PASS Returns To Quebec On May 21 and New Brunswick On June 3 with Oxford 250 Spots Up For Grabs
 
NAPLES, ME (December 8) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials announced today the release of the 2017 schedule for the PASS North Super Late Models. The Northeast's top short trackers will once again compete at some of the best speedways in New England and Canada, highlighted by the 44th Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway. The season will begin for the second year in a row at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Connecticut as part of the Icebreaker weekend on April 1-2. After a year hiatus, PASS will return to Canada in 2017 with events in the provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick. The PASS North Super Late Models will compete on 10 different speedways in 4 states and 2 Canadian provinces in 2017.

"We believe this is our strongest schedule yet for the PASS North Super Late Models," said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "This year we will celebrate our 17th year of sanctioning races and we're very glad to be able to return to Canada in 2017. Our fans to the north are some of the most passionate in all of racing. The Oxford 250 has found a home with its August date and has solidified its place as one of short track racing's biggest events and we're glad to continue that this coming year."

The 44th Annual Oxford 250 looks to continue as one of the crown jewel events in short track racing with racers from all across North America expected to compete for $25,000 to win, plus guaranteed lap leader money on August 25-27. The 250 will again cap off a full weekend of short track racing action on the famed Oxford Plains Speedway in what many dub Maine's premier sporting event annually. And for the first time ever, the PASS National Champion will be crowned at the conclusion of the 250.

A final tune-up to the Oxford 250 will take place on Sunday, July 30 at Oxford Plains Speedway. In addition, Oxford Plains Speedway will once again host the PASS North Super Late Models on Saturday, April 22 and will crown the PASS North titlist with the season finale on Saturday, October 14.

Following a successful debut last year, PASS will again sanction a special Independence Day weekend show at Oxford Plains Speedway on Sunday, July 2. This event will be a non-points event, featuring PASS "non-winners." The top three finishers will be given guaranteed starting spots for the 44th Annual Oxford 250. This year, Wayne Helliwell, Jr. won the PASS "non-winners" race before going on to capture the checkered flag in the Oxford 250.

In 2017, PASS North returns to Canada for two major events. On Sunday, May 21, PASS makes its way back to Quebec for an event at Autodrome Montmagny. And for the first time since 2014, the PASS North Super Late Models will be at Speedway 660 in New Brunswick for an Oxford 250 qualifier on Saturday, June 3. The top three teams from the United States and the top three teams from Canada will each receive guaranteed starting spots for the Oxford 250.

Maine's Beech Ridge Motor Speedway will host the PASS North Super Late Models three times in 2017 on Saturday, April 29, Saturday, July 8, and on Sunday, September 17. The PASS 300 in April will be one of six PASS National Championship events that were announced earlier this month.

Speedway 95 in Hermon, ME returns to the PASS North schedule for a fourth consecutive year with a 150 lap event slated for Sunday, June 18.

PASS will make its first of five trips in 2017 to the state of New Hampshire on Saturday, May 6 at Star Speedway. There will also be a special Thursday night event at Star Speedway on July 13. PASS will make its only trip to White Mountain Motorsports Park on Saturday, September 23. The series will also be in the Granite State on Friday, June 23 for an event at Lee USA Speedway and then again on Friday, August 11.

The Super Late Models of PASS will compete again for the third straight year at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Vermont on Sunday, May 28. The PASS North Super Late Models will race for 150 laps and the Thunder Road Late Models will join them for the Mekkelsen Memorial Day Classic 100.

Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Continues Tradition as Spring's Premier Super Late Model Event

Dillon, Orange County, Thompson, And Beech Ridge Fill Out Remainder Of Championship Schedule


NAPLES, ME (November 29) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials have released the six dates and locations that will make up the 10th Annual PASS National Championship Series. The schedule is comprised of six premier Super Late Model events in both PASS North and PASS South that will determine an overall PASS National Champion. The PASS National Championship Series will see the champion crowned for the first time ever at the prestigious 44th Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway in August. And, the PASS National Championship Series will return to North Carolina's Orange County Speedway next March for the first time since 2014.

Since 2008, some of the best short track racers in North America have captured the PASS National Championship including Cassius Clark, Ben Rowe, Preston Peltier, Jay Fogleman, and Joey Doiron. While awards are currently still being finalized, the champion will once again receive a one-of-a-kind championship trophy featuring the American Bald Eagle. Additional awards will be announced at a later date.

"Ten years ago, with our presence across the Eastern Seaboard and Canada, we felt the time was right to crown Super Late Model racing's true National champion," said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "We're very happy to be able to announce the PASS National Championship schedule for 2017 at such an early date. These events exemplify what's great about short track racing and we feel each of them will attract the best Super Late Model drivers from across the continent. We're also very happy to crown the 2017 PASS National Champion at the 44th Annual Oxford 250 for the first time in history. It's just another layer added to make this great race even better."

The PASS National Championship Series, along with the 2017 PASS South championship season, gets underway in just over two months with the Winter Meltdown at the South Carolina Clash at Dillon Motor Speedway in South Carolina on February 4. Fittingly on Super Bowl weekend, fans will get to see drivers from across the spectrum of short track racing as the PASS Super Late Models will race for 200 laps and $6,000 to win, plus a major event for the Dillon Motor Speedway Late Models as part of the Winter Meltdown at the South Carolina Clash.

From Dillon Motor Speedway in February, it is back to one of the most traditional stops in the south as PASS returns to Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC for the first time since 2014. The 10th Running of the Orange Blossom Special on March 25 will see the PASS tour tackle the high banks for 150 laps. Orange County Speedway has been made famous for featuring three wide racing on its ultra-high banks.

Race three of the 2017 PASS National Championship Series will be the first of the year in New England and will be contested at one of the fastest tracks in the country. The PASS Super Late Models will compete for 75 laps at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Connecticut as part of the annual Icebreaker weekend April 1-2, along with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. PASS made a success return to Thompson Speedway last year in an event won by Garrett Hall. The Icebreaker will also once again double as the PASS North Super Late Model championship season opener.

The PASS National Championship Series will then head back south to the legendary Hickory Motor Speedway in North Carolina on April 15. The 12th Annual Easter Bunny 150 will continue in 2017 as one of short track racing's biggest events of the Spring. Since veteran Mike Rowe won the first Easter Bunny 150 back in 2006 to Ben Rowe winning the most recent edition last year, Hickory Motor Speedway's hallowed victory lane has been cherished by every Super Late Model driver that has followed in his their tire tracks.

Next up, the PASS National Championship Series will conclude a busy month of April at the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, ME. The Beech Ridge 300 on April 29 is always a favorite for both fans and competitors and this year's contest will be no different.

The 44th Annual Oxford 250 at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway on August 27 will continue a tradition that started in 1974 and has seen such winners as Butch Lindley, Geoff Bodine, Junior Hanley, Ricky Craven, Kevin Harvick, and Kyle Busch. And, with one of the richest purses in all of Super Late Model racing, the Oxford 250 should once again attract North America's best drivers, all competing for the $25,000 winner's share. This year winner, Pelham, NH's Wayne Helliwell, Jr., bested over 60 other drivers to claim nearly $30,000 for his first win in the prestigious race.

The final race on the 2017 PASS National Championship Series will be the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 at Hickory Motor Speedway on November 18th.

The 2017 PASS North Super Late Model schedule will be announced in the next 7-10 days awaiting the confirmation of dates from two tracks. The final date for the PASS South Super Late Model schedule will also be announced in the coming days.

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as PASS South's Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.

The 10th Orange Blossom Special will go green on Saturday, March 25 and then the series will return for the penultimate race of the season on Saturday, October 21.

Hickory Motor Speedway, the longest tenured facility on the PASS South circuit dating back to 2006, will once again hold the biggest and most traditional Super Late Model race in the Carolinas. The 12th Annual Easter Bunny 150 will bring some of the best racers in North America together again on Saturday, April 15. The Easter Bunny 150 expects 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 the two biggest tracks on the 2017 schedule. Caraway Speedway near Asheboro, NC will host a special Friday night event on May 4. PASS will then expand its relationship with Concord Speedway near Charlotte by again hosting the Old Glory Weekend on May 26 as part of the big Memorial Day festivities in the Charlotte area. The famed triangular half-mile, known for its legendary Big 10 Series, will see the PASS South Super Late Models race on Friday night, May 26.

Look for the release of the 2017 schedule for the PASS North Super Late Models and the remainder of the PASS National Championship Series dates to be released in the near future.
