Brandon Ward Seeks Redemption At PASS South’s Orange Blossom Special
Mar 26, 2014 - updated Mar 26th, 2014 9:35pm
Web posted by Alan Dietz

Charlotte, NC. --

For Immediate Release

 

CHARLOTTE, NC (March 25) – As the 9th Annual Orange Blossom Special approaches at Orange County Speedway on April 5, fans and racers alike are eagerly awaiting a trip to one of the favorite stops on the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model schedule.  Several teams have already tested at the high-banked, 3/8 mile speedway near Durham, NC.  While fans are equally excited thanks to PASS Fan Appreciation at Orange County Speedway with special admission pricing featuring $25 per vehicle for up to 6 people or $10 admission per person.  But, one long time PASS South team might be even more anxious to get to Orange County than all the rest.

New Day Motorsports and driver Brandon Ward had high expectations entering the 2013 PASS South campaign.  After all, the veteran team was coming off their best season ever following wins at Wake County Speedway and Anderson Motor Speedway and finishing fourth in final points.  But what looked to be such a promising season quickly proved to be a nightmare.  Ward struggled to get the handle on the familiar #62, destroying the team’s primary car at South Boston Speedway in May after his brakes failed entering turn one.

But that was just the beginning.  In August, veteran crew member Mike “The Judge” Sabiston lost his life in a freak accident at Southern National Motorsports Park.  Then, just two months later, the team’s second car was destroyed at Orange County after a hard crash involving Randy Gentry.

Now, having survived virtually everything the “racing god’s” could throw at them, Ward and the New Day Motorsports team come to this year’s Orange Blossom Special closer and stronger than ever before.  Having to prepare a whole new fleet of cars did set the team back causing them to miss the first two races of the season at Greenville-Pickens Speedway and Dillon Motor Speedway.  But, Ward believes the Winston-Salem, NC team is more than ready and at 100 percent heading to Orange County.

            “We had a lot to do and some regrouping to do over the winter, but all the guys have worked really hard and they’ve got a really good car put back together,” said Ward.  “We wanted to run the first couple of races, but just weren’t quite ready.  We’ve tested at Orange County and we’re going to be ready to go on April 5.”

            It may seem ironic that Ward returns with the kpmoto.com/Foothill Ford #62 at Orange County since it was there last October where the 2013 season came to such an abrupt end.  But, following a successful test at the track last Saturday which saw the new car hit the track for the first time, Ward believes Orange County could be the place to get New Day Motorsports back on track, so to speak.

“It’s close to home for us and we’ll have a lot of friends and family there looking to have a good time and put last year behind us,” says Ward.  “It’s a fast race track and with the banking there you can move around a lot.  You can pass because you’ll see cars run the top and bottom.  You’ll see crate cars be fast there, but the built motor cars are too.  It’s just a good race track that seems to suit these PASS cars and always put on a great race for the fans.”

            It is shaping up to be another great event for North America’s most diverse short track series as teams continue to enter daily for the Orange Blossom Special.  PASS South points leaders Tyler Church, Cole Timm, and Jared Irvan are among the early entries.  Local favorite Tate Fogleman carries the banner for Bull City Race Cars following his dad, Jay’s, exciting PASS South win there last October.  Defending PASS Pro Late Model champion Trevor Noles will be back as he looks to get his season on track, along with fellow Pro Late Model graduate Tyler Audie, who will be making his first start of the season.  Veteran Randy Gentry returns after his third-place finish to start the season at Greenville along with fellow South Carolina driver Ted Mickelson.  PASS North veteran Derek Ramstrom will make the tow down from Massachusetts, while Canadian Steve Halpin joins Kevin Powell behind the wheel of the Woodman Racing entries.  Rookies Brandon Setzer, Tyler Dippel, Matt Daley, and Tanner Rumburg fill out the slate of early entrants seeking a win at Orange County Speedway.

Entry forms and the weekend schedule for the Orange Blossom Special at Orange County Speedway can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com.

Action gets under way on Friday, April 4th at Orange County Speedway with rotating practice from 3 – 6:40 PM for the PASS South Super Late Models, PASS Pro Late Models, and Legends.  On Saturday, April 5th, pit gates will open at 11 AM for the 9th Annual Orange Blossom Special, with rotating practice for all divisions from 1 – 3:10 PM.  Qualifying will begin at 4 PM and racing will start at 6 PM, featuring 150 laps for the PASS South Super Late Models, 50 laps for the PASS Pro Late Models, and25 laps for the Legends cars. 

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, the Autobus La Quebecoise Triple Crown at Autodrome Chaudière, and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.  For technical information concerning all PASS divisions please send questions to passracing@roadrunner.com.  For media or marketing questions, please contact Alan Dietz at 704-231-2039 or alandietzpass@live.com.  Please visit ProAllStarsSeries.com for more information.  And, don’t forget to “Like” the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to keep up with breaking news as it happens.
