Halfway Breaks To Be Included At Mason-Dixon Meltdown

Concord, NC. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:(November 3, 2006)

PASS South Super Late Models and Tour-Type Modifieds to Have 10-Minute Break

In an effort to look out for all race teams with all types of budgets, Mason-Dixon Meltdown co-promoters Tom Mayberry and Bob Dillner announced today that both the PASS South Super Late Model 250-lap event and the Tour-Type Modified 250-lap event at the Mason-Dixon Meltdown will include a 10-minute halfway break.

The lap-125 break will allow teams to make adjustments on their cars, which will include changing tires, without having to bring a full pit crew to the event. Both Mayberry and Dillner believe this will help bring in some of the “smaller” teams that might not have had a full over-the-wall crew available for the Meltdown, which runs Thanksgiving weekend, November 24th-25th at South Boston Speedway.

“We are really trying to look out for everyone by instituting this aspect of the event,” said Mayberry. “We know that there are a lot of teams out there that can’t get a full crew the later in the year it gets and this will help those teams. Teams will still be able to make green-flag and yellow-flag stops where they might need a full over-the-wall team, but this will help those who don’t have that ability.

“Now, someone can come in at lap 125 and make all of the adjustments they want to the cars, including changing tires and not have the pressure of having to beat out teams that have a more experienced pit crew. We think this is a great idea and will help bring in a few more teams to compete that might have been on the fence before, thus giving the fans even more to look forward to.”

Tire rules for the event have recently been announced and more will be added to the masondixonmeltdown.com website soon. Teams will be permitted a total of 12 tires for the event (the four on the car that they qualify and run their heat race with, along with an additional eight tires they can have in their pits). There is no tire rule for practice. For more information on tires for the Super Late Model event, call Northern Tire at (603) 539-1566. For Modified tires, contact Hoosier South at (336) 731-6100.

It was recently announced that the Legends Semi-Pro and Pro/Masters events will also have a halfway break in their 50-lap features on Friday night. At lap 30 (just past halfway), the cars will come to a stop on the frontstretch. All of the adjustments that will be made have to be done on the frontstretch with the equipment the crews can take over the wall, right in front of the stands. The drivers will also be allowed to get out of their cars and are encouraged to walk to the fence and sign autographs and talk with the fans.

The Tour-Type Modified portion of the “Mason-Dixon Meltdown” features a 250-lap main event on Saturday, November 25th. The PASS South Super Late Models also have a 250-lap event that day and both premier divisions will be racing for a $12,500 paycheck for the winner, plus lap money and other bonuses to be announced soon. Also competing during the “Mason-Dixon Meltdown” weekend are the Legends Cars (Friday only) and the Pro Challenge Series (Saturday only).
