Field Set for the PASS South “THE RACE” at North Wilkesboro Speedway

44 Drivers Set to Take the Green Flag for $75,000.00 Sunday Afternoon


A total of 77 drivers entered the gates at North Wilkesboro Speedway (NC) this weekend to partake in the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South presented by JE Pistons and Roush Yates Performance Products “THE RACE,” which is scheduled to take place Sunday afternoon, April 10th. After qualifying, heat races and a couple last chance events, the 44-car field is set to take the green flag at the historic North Carolina track, where the winner will take home $75,000.00, along with five drivers eligible for the additional $25,000.00 bonus.



On Friday, Stephen Nasse etched his name in the record books, earning the McGunegill Engine Performance Fast Time Award with a new track record of 18.700 seconds. Justin Wakefield, Ryan Moore, Brian Ickler, Bubba Pollard, Augie Grill, Pat Kelly, Andy Loden, Johnny Clark, Jay Fogleman, Cale Gale, Kenzie Ruston, Trevor Sanborn, TJ Reaid and Chris Eggleston all locked themselves into the field as the fastest 15 during qualifying. The top-10 drivers redrew for their starting positions, with Clark and Fogleman starting THE RACE on the front row followed by Kelly, Loden, Grill, Pollard, Wakefield, Moore, Ickler and Nasse.


Friday evening, five 25-lap heat races were run with the top-three drivers in each race transferring into THE RACE.

Others that transferred in during the heat races were Jody Lavender, Rebecca Kasten, Mario Gosslin, Brandon Ward, Erik Darnell, Heath Hindman, Corey Williams, Mike Rowe, Garrett Evans and Scott Mulkern.


Saturday, the balance of the non-qualified drivers raced in two 40-lap last chance races with just the winners transferring into THE RACE. Taking the victories in the two races were Trey Mitchell and Alex Fleming.

PASS PR - Last chance results "The Race"

Trey Mitchell and Alex Fleming Race Their Way into PASS South “THE RACE” at North Wilkesboro Speedway

33 Drivers Raced for Two Transfer Spots in Last-Chance Races Saturday Afternoon


With 30 drivers already locking themselves in to the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South presented by JE Pistons and Roush Yates Performance Parts “THE RACE” on Friday, April 8th, 33 drivers raced in two last chance races for two more transfer positions on Saturday afternoon into the 300-lap race. Trey Mitchell and Alex Fleming took the checkered-flags first in their heat races, earning their spots into THE RACE.



Joey Coulter and Mitchell started side by side at the start of the first last chance race. Coulter got the edge going into turn one, clearing Mitchell for the top spot. Lonnie Sommerville settled in to the third position as the top-three drivers distanced themselves from the rest of the field.


A battle back for seventh between 62 year old Geoff Bodine and 13 year old Gray Gaulding was heated for a few laps, but Gaulding was able to work his way under Bodine to take the position just before lap 10.


Meanwhile, up front, Mitchell worked his way to the back bumper and inside Coulter for the top spot, officially taking the lead. Also, Joey Pole made his presence known, moving his way up from ninth to second, chasing Mitchell for the transfer spot.


With the rest of the race going green flag, Mitchell was able to hold off the late charge by Pole to take the victory and the coveted transfer spot into THE RACE.


I’ve got to thank Joey (Coulter),” said Mitchell. “This is a do-or-die thing, and he didn’t have to race me clean. He did, and I appreciate that. I really do think we have a good piece. It rolls the center great and has great horsepower.”


Pole, Coulter, Sommerville and Gaulding rounded out the top five.


Jimmy Weller and Ryan Reed started on the front row of the second last chance race. Coming to take the green flag, both leaders seemed to have trouble coming up to speed, almost stacking up the field. Reed was able to get going and take the lead while Weller dropped back several positions.


The yellow flag flew early for Randy Gentry’s spin in turn one after contact with Dustin Hubbard. On the restart, Reed and Fleming headed to turn one with Fleming driving hard on the outside, taking the lead. Reed settled in second with Donnie Wilson in third.


Over the final handful of laps, Wilson put pressure on Reed for the second position, eventually moving his way into the runner-up spot as the racers took the white flag, but it was just a little too late as Fleming went to victory lane in the second last chance race.


I have never been more excited to qualify into a race,” said Fleming. “We put ourselves in a hole working on long runs (yesterday). We didn’t realize we weren’t in the race yet. We started the heat race and they left us. This morning we changed every single thing on the car back to a normal set-up.”


Wilson, Reed, DJ Shaw and Brian Levant rounded out the top five.


The balance of the field will be determined by PASS officials with provisionals going to multiple drivers.
