Twin-Bill “Mason-Dixon Meltdown” Announced By PASS Series

South Boston, VA. --

PASS South Super Late Models & Tour-Type Modifieds Share $12,500-To-Win Races

(July 20, 2006)

In the 1600s, the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, met up with the Indians and shared a feast that would later become one of the biggest holidays in our country; Thanksgiving. If the Pilgrims and Indians were alive in 2006, after the feast, they’d surely head south to South Boston Speedway in South Boston, Virginia, to partake in another tradition that will become a hallmark of the short track racing landscape: the “Mason-Dixon Meltdown.”

The group which promotes the Pro All Star Series South announced today that it will hold what will be billed as the “Mason Dixon Meltdown” at the famed southern Virginia track on November 24-25. It will feature twin 250-lap races for the Pro All-Star Series (PASS) South Super Late Models and Tour-Type Modifieds. Each race will pay $12,500 to win and $1,000 to start.

“This is really going to be one of the biggest Super Late Model and Modified events of the year,” said Tom Mayberry, president of PASS. “And there is no better short track in the country to feature both the Super Late Models and Modifieds than South Boston Speedway. It’s a historic track that has a lot of rich history with both divisions and a track that both Super Late Model and Modified fans will love to see such a prestigious event.

“We are really expecting this to be a huge gathering of some of the best racers in the country in both divisions. And with the Super Late Model race being just a handful of days before most people start heading toward Florida to the Snowball Derby in Pensacola, Florida, we think this will be a great opportunity to get more people involved in that race as well.”

Tom and SPEED Channel commentator Bob Dillner are promoting this inaugural event which will feature plenty of racing and other events to fulfill a family atmosphere on Thanksgiving weekend. In addition to the Super Late Models and Modifieds, two other premier racing series will be featured during the weekend, making it one of the biggest events in the entire country. More announcements on those divisions will be made in the coming weeks.

The schedule of events for the entire weekend is still being finalized but calls for practice and qualifying on Friday, November 24th, with the 250-lap events for each division on Saturday, November 25th.

“I‘m already pretty excited to get to go to South Boston later in the year,” said Super Late Model competitor Dennis Schoenfeld, who currently sits fourth in the PASS South standings. “It’s a nice-sized purse and this race should draw a lot of racers and a lot of fans. South Boston is definitely one of the most talked about racetracks around; not just in the southeast, but the entire country. Everybody knows about it and everyone wants to run there and win there.

“It's special to win any race, but to win that inaugural deal at South Boston with the North and the South guys together, that would be a pretty big deal. The PASS Series in general is great. It’s probably one of the most organized series that I have ever competed in and this event will be big.”

Both the Super Late Model and Modified events will feature 32-car fields with the ability to add provisionals. The winner of each race will take home a $12,500 check. The 32nd-place finisher is guaranteed to take home $1,000. Lap sponsorships and other awards will be announced in the coming months.

The open Tour-Type Modified show will come a few weeks after the North/South Shootout and that will enable drivers plenty of time to turn their cars around and get them ready for the big money show at South Boston Speedway.

One of the drivers planning to compete in both 250-lap events, despite getting married during the same weekend, is short-track legend Ted Christopher.

“This race is big time for modified racing,” said Christopher, who is a championship contender on the Whelen Modified Tour and an occasional competitor in Super Late Model competition. “It’s a great race organized by good people and it’s paying good money. We, as racers, always appreciate when people come up with big paying races because a lot of these guys are just hobby racers and winning good money keeps them going. It’s going to be a big race. I wish more people would follow these guys’ lead and do things like this for racers.

“We went to South Boston a bunch of years ago with the (NASCAR Modified) Tour. I always enjoyed racing there and I think we put on a pretty good show. A lot of fans would come out for those races and I think it would be the exact same this time around. If the stands aren’t full, I’ll be shocked. I always thought it was pretty neat because I could remember all of the people in the stands there. There were people all the way around the outside of the track. I remember noticing that during the race. I think the fans will really enjoy it.”

Tickets for the “Mason-Dixon Meltdown” will run $15 for Friday and $40 for Saturday. A two-day ticket will be available for $50. More details on the entire event will be coming shortly.
