Alexander debuts new super late model team Sunday


   Alexander tested "the family car" at Wiscasset Saturday

Alexander debuts new super late model team Sunday

Ellsworth ME (4/12/2016) There are changes in the wind for 16 year-old Super Late Model racer Wyatt Alexander, and he's hoping that those changes will give him a leg up when he takes his first green of the 2016 season at Oxford Plains Speedway April 17th.

For the first time in his racing career Alexander will spend much of his time competing in something other than a family owned race car. The Alexander family teamed up with Dan Colby Racing in the off season, and Colby has spent the winter updating his chassis with the latest innovations from Dale Shaw Race Cars and a new Arbodies skin. The new combination looks to Oxford with high hopes and realistic expectations.

"Naturally we can't wait to get the season started, " says Alexander." Dan has been working hard to get his car prepared for Oxford; it's a beauty, and I can't wait to log some laps. We will approach Oxford, and all of our season for that matter, with realistic goals. We'll be at Oxford for most of the PASS races leading up to the H.P. Hood Oxford 250; that race has a star next to it on our schedule, and we will be putting extra effort into fine tuning our package for that one."

The new team has an ambitious schedule planned, with an emphasis on both the PASS and Granite State Pro Stock Series schedules. Wiscasset weekly shows, the Boss Hogg 100 and Seekonk's big midweek Pro Stock open are all on the list. If the season goes as planned a fall PASS South race will be added to the schedule. It's a ton of racing, but the blending of the two race teams gives Alexander two well prepared race cars and a talented team backing him up. It's an edge that should come into play as the season progresses.

" Our schedule will probably not allow us to race for points or any rookie titles but our goal is to race at as many new tracks as possible. I have less than twenty features in a super late model and most of them were 40 laps or less. We spent the majority of 2015 focusing on the weekly series at Wiscasset," says Alexander." I finished fourth in the points, earned Rookie of the Year in our class and won the Boss Hogg 100. Wiscasset is a great place to race but it takes track time at all the region's speedways to progress in these cars and often more than one trip to a new track for a driver to get comfortable and the race car dialed in just right. So, we will venture out from our home track with the goal of getting to know some new speedways and learn what it takes to be around at the finish of these 100 and 150 lap features. I'm confident in my team and my equipment. My family will still be 100% involved. I wouldn't have it any other way. Dan brings a ton of experience and knowledge to the team, and the added plus of knowing what it takes to get around several of the tracks we've never visited. I know there will be some bumps in the road along the way, but I fully expect to have nights when we will be in the mix for the win, too."

Alexander may have just received his drivers' license but he's a twelve year veteran behind the wheel of a race car. His experience should serve him well as he climbs the super late model ladder. The season gets underway this weekend at Oxford Plains Speedway, a Pro All Stars/American-Canadian Tour doubleheader set to take the green at 2:00 PM.

Horsepower On Display This Weekend In PASS/Modified Doubleheader At Caraway


Horsepower On Display This Weekend In PASS/Modified Doubleheader At Caraway


-       For Immediate Release


CHARLOTTE, NC (April 12) – Southeast race fans will get a rare treat this weekend at Caraway Speedway when the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Models and NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour compete together in a rare doubleheader.  The Dogwood 325 will see the two most powerful asphalt series in the South compete together for the first time ever on Saturday night at Caraway, along with the Mid-Atlantic Limited Late Models, Chargers, Mini Stocks, and Hornets.

Sanford, NC's Jody Measamer is a driver that knows Caraway Speedway well.  Measamer grew up helping on the crew of legendary short tracker racer, Tom Usry, at Caraway and other tracks throughout the Carolinas.  Eventually, Measamer took his place behind the wheel and Caraway Speedway has been very good to him throughout his racing career.  Measamer won his first 4-Cylinder Modified race at Caraway and then went on to score his first Late Model Supertruck win there before going on to capture the track championship.

"Caraway is one of the toughest tracks on the tour, it is a very technical track where you must hit your marks each and every lap," says Measamer, driver of the Aquavapor Electronic Cigarettes/Solid Rock Carriers #98 Chevrolet.  "It is a challenge to get the car to respond at both ends of the track.  Turns 1 and 2 are totally different than 3 and 4.  Based on previous PASS South Races at Caraway, first and foremost, you have to keep the fenders on it and all 4 tires heading in the same direction.  You also have to keep from using your tires too early so you have something left to go with at the end."

Measamer came to Caraway Speedway last year with high expectations too, but was involved in an incident on lap one that saw him get into the wall.  Despite heavy damage, Measamer's crew worked on the car through multiple pit stops and the team soldiered home to a third place finish.  This year, Measamer battled hard at Dillon with eventual race winner Brandon Setzer and set a new Super Late Model track record at Hickory for the prestigious Easter Bunny 150.  Needless to say, hopes are high this weekend as Measamer seeks his first career PASS South Super Late Model victory.

"Honestly there is not just one single item, but a combination of several little things I believe that has helped with our start this year," says Measamer.  "We struggled at the end of 2015 for speed and were just not happy with the car.  During the off season we completely rebuilt the car, but the frustrating part is we didn't really find anything wrong that would explain what was going on.  We unloaded at Dillon pretty good and hit on a few things with shocks and bumpstops that's made it even better which we were able to show at Hickory.  I feel like we have a good piece going in to Caraway and hope we can finally break in to victory lane."

While Measamer will be seeking victory, rookie Kodie Conner and second year driver Matt Craig are embroiled in a fierce fight for the points lead which has them separated by only six points.  As a matter of fact, the top eight drivers in points are only 100 points, including New England driver Kyle Desouza and Ontario's JP Josiasse.  Last year's winner Jared Fryar is entered, along with former North-South Shootout winner, Ryan Moore, and Caraway frontrunner Trey Jarrell, who has increased support from sponsor Kaytech, Inc.  Veteran Jimmy Doyle and second year racer Kyle McCallum have also filed pre-entries for Saturday's Dogwood 325.

All the action gets under way on Friday at Caraway Speedway with open practice for all competing divisions from 3 – 6 PM.  On Saturday, practice will begin at 1 PM with qualifying starting at 5 PM for the PASS South Super Late Models, Mid-Atlantic Limited Late Models and NASCAR Whelen Southern Modifieds, followed by main events starting at approximately 6:30 PM

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as the legendary HP Hood Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway and PASS South's Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway.  For technical information concerning all PASS divisions please send questions to passracing@roadrunner.com.  For media or marketing questions, please contact Alan Dietz at 704-231-2039 or alandietzpass@live.com.  And, don't forget to "Like" the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @PASSSLM14 to keep up with breaking news as it happens.
