Orange County’s PASS South Go In July Becomes “Roads To Oxford And Richmond” Qualifier
NAPLES, ME (May 25) – Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry announced today an additional qualifying event for the “Roads To Oxford And Richmond” program. Now in its fifth year, the groundbreaking “Roads To Oxford And Richmond” concept further expands to give racers another opportunity to get locked into short track asphalt racing’s biggest events. Joining the previously announced events in Maine and Canada, will be the PASS South Super Late Model event at North Carolina’s Orange County Speedway on Saturday night, July 21. The 12th Annual Orange Blossom Special will reward the top five finishers a guaranteed starting spot for either the 45th Annual Oxford 250 in August or the inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway in October.
The 2017 Oxford 250 saw droves of race fans from across North America and over 60 Super Late Models make the trek to Oxford Plains Speedway in Maine for the chance to win over $25,000. And beginning this year, racers across several short track disciplines will have the opportunity to race at the Richmond Raceway in Virginia as part of the inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic, one of the most talked about and anticipated events in years.
This year’s program will see the race winners get a guaranteed starting position at full start money for the Oxford 250 or at Richmond. The remaining top five finishers in each of these PASS events will be guaranteed a starting position for either the Oxford 250 or Richmond at half start money.
The first event to be featured in the program was the Easter Bunny 150 at North Carolina’s Hickory Motor Speedway, a race won by Preston Peltier. The “Roads” continue to an international event next weekend in the Canadian province of New Brunswick, with the series’ first trip to Petty International Raceway on June 2. Then, a special Tuesday night 200 lapper paying $5,000 to win on July 3, will be held at Spud Speedway in Caribou, ME, followed by the newly added event at Orange County Speedway on July 21. The final race as part of the “Roads To Oxford And Richmond” will be on Sunday, July 29 at Oxford Plains Speedway.
Additionally, the top licensed drivers in points from PASS North, PASS South, and the PASS National Championship Series, will have provisionals available, if needed, as long as they have attempted to qualify for every race in their chosen series. All drivers that receive guaranteed spots through the “Roads To Oxford And Richmond” or via championship points provisionals have to compete in their heat races, qualifying, or in their consolation races, but will not have to compete in the last chances race if they have not already advanced.
