150 Laps of Super Late Model Racing Up Next in Penultimate Series Event
The 2011 racing season is winding down, but the battle for the championship in the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model Series South division is far from over as the series returns to Hickory Motor Speedway (NC) on Saturday, October 29th, for 150 laps of racing action in the penultimate event of the year.
The championship chase has primarily been between two racers. Cagey veteran Jay Fogleman sits on top of the points with a victory to his credit at the start of the season at Anderson Motor Speedway (SC). His consistency has placed him in the lead with young racer Ryan Blaney trailing by just four points. Blaney earned victories at Dillon Motor Speedway (SC) and Ace Speedway, and has finished ahead of Fogleman in the last five events, helping to close the gap.
While it might be a tight two-horse race out front, there are others battling hard within the top 10 to move their way closer to the top. With one win and a slew of pole positions, Andy Loden currently occupies the third position, followed by Preston Peltier and Heath Hindman. Steven Legendre, Jimmy Weller, Gray Gaulding, Justin Wakefield and Jody Lavender are sixth through 10th in the standings.
Earlier this year at Hickory Motor Speedway, Fogleman and Blaney finished third and fourth respectively with Stephen Nasse and Peltier claiming the top-two positions in the 150-lap Easter Bunny event. Loden, Legendre and Hindman also landed top-10 finishes, which will lend to an exciting 150 laps of competition on Saturday.
Throwing a wrench into the plans of the top drivers in the points pulling off victories are the other series regulars as well as drivers dropping in to see if they can steal a Halloween weekend victory. Daniel Hemric, Rebecca Kasten, Dean Clattenburg, Ryan Moore and Logan Ruffin are just a few looking to be the spoilers.
As with all PASS South Super Late Model events, all 150 laps will be completed under green flag conditions, and all restarts will be double file, lending to excitement from green flag to checker.
Practice for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South 150-lap event at Hickory Motor Speedway will take place on Friday, October 28th, starting at 2 PM. On Saturday, October 29th, pit gates open at 12:00 PM with practice starting at 2:00 PM. Time trials will kick off at 4:30 PM with feature racing at 6:00 PM. Legends, Bandoleros, CCS Late Model Sportsmans and the Allison Legacy Series will also be in competition.
