Pass Series Racing News
There’s No Place like Wake County Speedway;PASS South Helps Track Celebrate 50 Consecutive Years of Racing

Raleigh, NC. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Charlotte, NC 5/8/12- After a one year hiatus from the series schedule the PASS South Series super late models return to the Wake County Speedway in Raleigh, North Carolina this Friday night May 11th for the Capital City Clash/Bull Ring Tough Guy Challenge 125 presented by Bio Specialists. The series will help the small quarter mile track celebrate its 50th consecutive year of racing with the biggest event that will hit the track in 2012. A full field of cars and packed grandstands are expected to greet racers and fans alike.
“You wouldn’t believe it but Wake County was the one track that fans and drivers made clear that they wanted back on the PASS South schedule in 2012.,” stated Pro All Stars Series president Tom Mayberry. “Every time we’ve raced there it’s been an action packed show with great enthusiasm from the crowd and I expect more of the same this year. This race I’ve always said it well separate the men from the boys.”
The tight racing that the Wake County Speedway provides puts sophisticated chassis setups and high horsepower motor combination in the backseat, and brings old fashioned driver talent to the forefront. Series veterans Preston Peltier, Jay Fogleman, and John Batten all have raced at the track and knows that patience is what gets you to the end of 125 lap feature not a fast racecar.
The top four drivers in the series standings are all drivers who have had fast racecars so far in 2012, but now the knowledge beneath the helmet is what will be tested the most. Hickory race winner Kyle Grissom, latest series winner Ross Kenseth, Landon Cling, and Brandon Ward will all be making their Wake County Speedway debuts.
Unique to the Raleigh, North Carolina track is the fact that super late models are apart of the track’s weekly racing program. No other track throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, or Virginia race super late models on weekly basis. This always creates an extra bit of excitement for regulars both in the grandstands and behind the wheel. Track regulars Joe Heigl, Kevin Flores, and defending track champion Alex Fleming are all expected to battle the series regular.
“I think the guys that race regularly at Wake County have just as good of a shot as the PASS regulars do at winning this weekend. They all understand that the key to racing at Wake is knowing how much space your car actually takes up on the track. It’s a tight racetrack so you have to be aware of what will and won’t work when you’re racing someone. The fastest car doesn’t always win plain and simple. Usually the smartest drivers are the ones that finish up front. I’m really hoping we can have a good showing at our home track because our luck hasn’t been too good to start the year off,” said Alex Fleming, the multi time track champion.
The time to put up or shut up comes this Friday night at 8pm as “The Big Boys and Their Bad Fast Toys” duke it out at the Wake County Speedway to see who’s the toughest of them all and who will be crowned governor of the capital city in victory lane. Practice for the 125 lap kicks off at 3pm, followed by time trails at 6pm. The series always popular on-track meet and greet with the drivers of the PASS South Series gets underway at approximately 7:15pm proceeded by 125 laps of high horsepower super late model action presented by Bio Specialists.
