PASS MegaMeltdown To Feature Live Pit Stops And National Championship Battle

PASS MegaMeltdown To Feature Live Pit Stops And National Championship Battle

- For Immediate Release

CHARLOTTE, NC (November 16) – With practice now under way for the 12th Annual Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 At Hickory Motor Speedway, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model racers from all across the continent are ascending on the legendary race track.   While the focus for fans may be on who can take home over $15,000 for winning, teams are focusing on how to achieve that goal.
An intriguing factor for this weekend’s race will be strategy and live pit stops.   With 300 green flag laps before them on Saturday afternoon, teams will have the opportunity to change up to six tires at any point in the MegaMeltdown.   Since caution laps will not count, grassroots teams will not be faced with employing “ringers,” professional pit crews brought in for race day only.   And, teams will also be basing their strategies on what type of power plant they have under the hood.   Some teams with “built” motors will utilize the horsepower advantage they have to try and over power their competition.   But, teams with less horsepower under the hood will have the opportunity to conserve tires and possibly cut back on the number of stops they make in favor of making up track position.
While everyone has the goal to take the big paycheck and the checkered flag in front of a nationwide audience on MAV TV, two drivers will also be focusing on winning Super Late Model racing’s only national championship.   Both Ben Rowe and Dave Farrington, Jr. come into Saturday afternoon’s action with a shot at the PASS National title.   For Rowe, a multi-time winner at Hickory Motor Speedway, a fifth national title would push his overall tally to 10 PASS championships.
“I think it’s pretty neat to have a shot at the PASS National title because there is a lot of traveling and work from everybody on the team, that people just don’t realize to get to those national races,” says Rowe, driver of the Richard Moody & Sons Construction/Hancock Lumber #4 Toyota.   “I think capping it all off at Hickory, one of my favorite racetracks, will be pretty cool.”
For Farrington, who enters the MegaMeltdown trailing Rowe by just 29 points, it will be his first time ever competing for the national championship.   This year, Farrington became the first driver since Rowe in 2009 to compete in every PASS Super Late Model event, north and south.
“It’s such a unique opportunity and I can’t thank everyone with our family-owned team and Woodman Racing for making this possible,” says Farrington, who will pilot the Energy Dynamics/Plant’s Seafood Chevrolet #7 this weekend.   “We hope to continue a program going in to 2018 and we will be giving it everything we’ve got to win this national championship.   We know we will need some help, but our team will not give up.”  
All the action gets under way on Thursday, November 16 at Hickory Motor Speedway with PASS hauler parking and optional practice from 1 – 4 PM.   On Friday, November 17, practice will begin at 10 AM, followed by Must Racing Sprint Car qualifying.   On Saturday, November 18, practice will begin at 9 AM, with PASS Super Late Model qualifying at 11 AM, followed Must See Racing Sprints for 50 laps and the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300.
   PASS Super Late Model entry forms and the complete weekend schedule for the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 at Hickory Motor Speedway can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com.
