PASS South Heads Back To Dillon Motor Speedway
After Rain Forces Postponement of South Carolina Clash
PASS PR Report
After a weekend that saw torrential rains pound the Southeast, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South competitors are looking forward to a return trip to Dillon (SC) Motor Speedway this Saturday night for the rescheduled 6th Annual South Carolina Clash. With an extra week off to get prepared for the tricky 4/10 mile oval, this weekend’s event promises to be extremely competitive. Before the rains moved into the region and forced the cancellation of the event on its originally scheduled date last weekend, 23 PASS South teams converged on Dillon last Friday to get their machines fine tuned. Since there will be less than a week before teams head to the Historic North Wilkesboro (NC) Speedway for the inaugural running of THE RACE, the South Carolina Clash weekend at Dillon will be compacted into a one day show. Gates will open on Saturday, April 2 at 9 AM with rotating practice for PASS South and support divisions from Noon to 3 PM. PASS South qualifying will begin at 4 PM and the South Carolina Clash will start promptly at 6 PM to allow teams as much time as possible to prepare for THE RACE. Main events for the support divisions will follow the 150 laper for the PASS South Super Late Models.
PASS South points leader and winner of the season opener at Anderson Jay Fogleman looks to build on his early season momentum. Perennial front runners and championship contenders Preston Peltier, Ryan Blaney, and Andy Loden will be looking to close the gap on Fogleman with good runs at Dillon. And, local fans will have something to cheer about as Hal Goodson returns in his familiar blue #16 and R.A. Brown debuts his PASS Super Late Model ride. All of these drivers plus many, many more are expected at Dillon Motor Speedway this weekend for what looks to be another ultra-competitive PASS South event.
In addition to the PASS South Super Late Models competing in the 150 lap South Carolina Clash, Dillon Motor Speedway will have a host of other racing divisions to entertain race fans, including the new CCS Late Model Sportsman division along with the Legends, Bandoleros and Mini Cups. Plus, the Allison Legacy cars join PASS for the first time this season.
Dillon Motor Speedway is located just off Interstate 95 on SC Highway 9 in Dillon, SC. For more information you can visit dillonmotorspeedway.com.
And, don’t forget the 2011 Pro All Stars Series South season continues April 7-9 with THE RACE, 300 laps paying $75,000 to win at the Historic North Wilkesboro (NC) Speedway. Over 90 Super Late Models have entered for one of the most anticipated short track races in history.
Ryan Blaney scored his first PASS South victory in the 2010 South Carolina Clash.
