PASS Cancels Myrtle Beach Race Due To Historic Flooding And Impending Forecast
- For Immediate Release
CHARLOTTE, NC (October 7) – Due to the recent historic floods in South Carolina and this weekend's impending forecast for the area, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials have cancelled this Saturday night's Bash At The Beach II at Myrtle Beach Speedway for the PASS South Super Late Models. Officials have been monitoring the recent flooding in the area around Myrtle Beach Speedway and, due to the high probability of rain currently forecasted for Saturday, have decided that its in everyone's best interest to cancel the event at this point. Furthermore, conditions are expected to deteriorate in Horry County, especially in nearby Conway, due to the flooding of the Waccamaw River. An estimated 11 trillion gallons of water have fallen in the state of South Carolina over the last week.
"The events in South Carolina over the last week have really been hard to watch and are thoughts are with everyone down there," said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "Despite our best efforts to try and make this race happen, the weather doesn't look like it will cooperate. As the flooding continues and with many roads either closed are washed out, we feel like its best in the interest of safety to cancel this weekend's activities."
Next up for PASS will be return of "The Howler" to Greenville-Pickens Speedway on Saturday, October 24. This will be the final event of the PASS National Championship series for the Super Late Models, while the PASS Pro Late Models, Renegades and Front Wheel Drive divisions will fill out the remainder of the racing card. Entry forms and the complete weekend schedule will soon be posted at ProAllStarsSeries.com
