PASS Points Races Coming Into Focus Heading To North South Shootout

Charlotte, NC. --




CHARLOTTE, NC (November 7) – As teams from up and down the East Coast make their way to North Carolina’s Caraway Speedway for the 10th Annual North South Shootout this weekend, the points battles for both the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South and National Championships could not get much tighter.  

After winning the Labor Day Classic at Caraway in September, PASS South points leader Kyle Grissom held a commanding lead and appeared to be cruising to his first series championship.  But a relatively quiet fifth place finish for Grissom at Hickory Motor Speedway, coupled with a disappointing 20th place finish in the All American 400 at Nashville, have brought the top four in PASS South points to within 24 points of one another.  

 

Preston Peltier sits second in PASS South points 18 points behind Grissom thanks in large part to his second win of the season at Hickory in the Over The Mountain 150.  But, Peltier failed to further capitalize on Grissom’s problems at Nashville after a cut tire relegated him to a 16th place finish.  

One of the biggest surprises this year has been the performance of third place points man Brandon Ward.  Along with his New Day Motorsports team, Ward racked up their first two PASS South wins at Wake County Speedway and Anderson Motor Speedway and even led the points through the middle of the season.  Lackluster runs looked to have dropped Ward out of serious contention for the title, but an eighth place finish at the All American 400 has the #62 back in the fold,  just 22 points behind Grissom.  

 

Once again, as it has been since he joined the series as a full-time competitor in 2009, Jay Fogleman finds himself in the middle of the championship fight.  Fogleman ended a long winless streak this summer at Motor Mile Speedway and a strong second place finish at Caraway in September has him excited to close the gap in the standings.  But, for Fogleman, Caraway is doubly important since it serves as a PASS South and PASS National point race.  In addition to being fourth in PASS South points, Fogleman sits just 15 points behind PASS National points leader Ben Rowe and a good run in the North South Shootout will be crucial to his title hopes.

Maine’s Ben Rowe comes to Caraway looking for an unprecedented third PASS National crown.  Although this will be the former four-time PASS North Champion’s first trip to Caraway, he probably will not be at a disadvantage.  Of his seven career PASS South wins, three have come on Rowe’s first trip to those speedways.  Canadian Matt Matheson sits fourth in PASS National points and joins Rowe in the long trek down South for this year’s North South Shootout.

 

In addition to the championship contenders, an impressive group of racers have already pre-entered for PASS South’s inaugural race as part of the North South Shootout.  Ross Kenseth looks to continue his Fall hot streak which includes a win the All American 400.  Brad Keselowski Racing teammates Landon Cling and Nate Caruth have had a solid 2012 season and hope to bounce back after rough stretch in September and October.  Youngsters Gray Gaulding, Scott Hensley and Jared Irvan have filed entries along with seasoned veterans like Jimmy Doyle, Bill Catania, Jody Measamer, and Kevin Powell.

 

A big week of activities kicks off on Thursday, November 8th with rotating practice for the North South Shootout for the PASS South Super Late Models, Tour Mods, SK Mods, Lite Mods, Late Model Supertrucks, Sportsman, and Legends.  On Friday, November 9th, grandstand gates will open at 4 PM with qualifying set to roll at 5 PM for all divisions.  On Saturday, November 10th, grandstand gates open at 11AM, followed by the Pit Party at 12:30 PM, pre race activities at 1:30 PM, and the green flag for the first of seven features that will make up the North South Shootout at 2 PM.  For a complete schedule of events and more information, please visit ProAllStarsSeries.com or NorthSouthShootout.com.   For marketing or media questions contact Alan Dietz at 704-231-2039 or at alandietzpass@live.com and for technical information contact Scott Reed at 207-625-3230.  And, be sure to “Like” the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook.
