Des nouveaux partenaires pour les Amateurs

Des nouveaux partenaires pour les Amateurs 

Après avoir annoncé dans les dernières semaines que des prix spéciaux seraient remis à 

chaque programme dans les classes Sport Compact Élite et Semi Pro, c'est un plaisir de 

vous annoncer que les pilotes de la classe Amateur auront aussi droit à deux prix remis 

par programme. 

Meilleure remontée en finale

Le pilote de Sport Compact Élite, Julien Bernier, a décidé de s'impliquer auprès de la 

classe Amateur par le biais de son entreprise POW pour remettre au pilote ayant effectué 

la meilleure remontée en finale un montant de 50$ par course. Impliqué dans le stock-car 

depuis plusieurs années comme pilote, comme équipier et aussi comme commanditaire de 

certains pilotes, Julien Bernier voulait faire sa part pour encourager la relève. Project On 

Wheels (POW) est une entreprise spécialisée en carrosserie ainsi qu'en vente et 

installation de pièces de performance. Situé à Ste-Marie, il se démarque par sa conception 

de projet sur mesure pour répondre aux demandes de sa clientèle. 

Prix qualification 

La championne 2015 de la classe Amateur, Ann-Marie Lessard a aussi désiré apporter sa 

contribution à cette classe qui aura été sa porte d'entrée comme pilote dans le stock-car. 

Rouge Velvet Coiffure dont Mme Lessard est propriétaire, remettra un montant de 20$ au 

gagnant de chaque qualification tout au long de la saison. Situé à Vallée-Jonction, Rouge 

Velvet Coiffure sera donc un commanditaire de la classe Amateur pour la saison 2016. 

C'est un privilège de voir pouvoir compter sur l'implication de ces deux passionnés de 

stock-car afin d'offrir des prix bonis comme ceux-ci à nos pilotes de la classe amateur.

Southern Modified Racing Series Set To Be Back On Track Friday Night At Ace

Southern Modified Racing Series Set To Be Back On Track Friday Night At Ace


-       For Immediate Release


CHARLOTTE, NC (April 19) – The Tour-type Modifieds of the Southern Modified Racing Series Presented By PASS will be back on track this Friday night at Ace Motor Speedway.  The Ace Of Diamonds Presented By The North-South Shootout will once again pit some of the toughest Modified racers in the country against one another with $4,000 to win and $500 to start.

Walnut Cove, NC's Burt Myers is one of the top names in southeast Tour-type Modified racing and has seen great success at Ace Motor Speedway in the past.  After a strong start to the 2016 season, the multi-time Bowman Gray Stadium champion is excited about his chances for an SMRS win on Friday night at Ace.

"If the first race was a sign, the Southern Modified Racing Series will be a good series," says Myers.  "We look forward to coming to one of my favorite tracks on Friday night at Ace.  The track is a little tight, but fun."

Massachusetts' driver Jonathan McKennedy found himself in the right place at the right time when the rains began at Hickory Motor Speedway to take the inaugural SMRS win in the Easter Bunny 125.  That victory gives McKennedy the SMRS points lead as the series heads to Ace Motor Speedway on Friday night.

"Hickory was a good win for us because there was a good field of cars and lots of fans that attended the race," says McKennedy.  "All weekend down there we had good speed and when it was time to go after the pit stop I was able to grab the lead. Hickory has got a lot of history and to win for the first time there, against a majority of drivers and teams that have raced there a bunch, it says a lot I think."

Like Hickory, Friday night will be the first time McKennedy will have the opportunity to race at Ace Motor Speedway.  And, if his success at Hickory is any indication, McKennedy will be one of the contenders for the win on Friday night.

"I'm looking forward to Ace, it should be a good track for me," says McKennedy.  "Some of the people I talked to said the track is shaped like a paper clip and is pretty tight.  It seems like it's more of a technical track than most.  Braking points and how you drive across the apex to keep drive in the car will be important."

In addition to McKennedy, the entry list continues to grow by the day for the Ace Of Diamonds Presented By The North-South Shootout.  Burt Myers, along with his brother, Jason, have entered as well John Smith, Brandon Ward and a strong group of Southern Modified drivers including Bobby Measmer, Jr., Chase Hunt, Mike Norman, Brian Loftin, Jimmy Wallace, and Jason Tutterow.

The Southern Modified Racing Series Presented By PASS will hit the track this Friday night at Ace Motor Speedway, with grandstands opening at 6 PM, an on-track autograph session at 7:45 PM, and racing starting at 8:15 PM.  Along with the SMRS Tour Modifieds, the Mid-Atlantic Limited Late Models will also be in action as well as the Southern Outlaw Street Stocks, USAC Eastern Midgets, and Mini Stocks.

             License forms, rules, and entry forms for Ace Motor Speedway are now posted at SouthernModifiedRacingSeries.com.

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

Portland Glass Back on Board with Devil's Bowl Speedway Mini Stocks

Significant growth expected in Mini Stock fields on both asphalt and dirt


For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                                 DBS-041916-1


WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Portland Glass, a New England-based industry leader, is back for its second season of stock car racing at Devil's Bowl Speedway in 2016.  The company joined Devil's Bowl last year and returns for all 27 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series (NWAAS) events scheduled for the speedway's 50th season, with racing beginning on the half-mile Asphalt Track on Saturday, May 21 and on the 3/10-mile Dirt Track on Sunday, May 22.

Portland Glass will again present racing in the Mini Stock division, which anticipates a sharp increase in car count.  Designed to be an economical, entry-level class, Mini Stocks are production compact cars with safety modifications only; popular models include the Dodge Neon, Chevrolet Cavalier, Honda Civic, and Ford Focus.  Mini Stocks are classified in the NWAAS "Division IV" category, and with Devil's Bowl's dual-surface NASCAR sanction in 2016, drivers have more opportunities to collect points while chasing the national championship against drivers from more than 60 tracks throughout North America.

Chris LaVair of Gabriels, N.Y., won the Devil's Bowl Asphalt Track championship last year and ranked 17th in Div. IV national standings. LaVair says he wants to win the 2016 national title and will run the full schedule on both tracks at Devil's Bowl.  He'll jump start his point total by traveling to South Carolina to race at NASCAR-sanctioned tracks Greenville-Pickens and Anderson before the local season begins.

LaVair's father, Harold, has purchased a Subaru that Chuck Bradford drove to the 2014 Devil's Bowl title, and will be joined on the pavement by veterans Andrew FitzGerald, Brad Bertrand, Kyle Sorensen, and Kyle Watrous.  Rookies include former Enduro Series champs Brett Wood and Eric Messier, and Wood's son, Zach.

On the Dirt Track side, the brothers Bishop enter the new season perched at the top.  Brian Bishop of Bridport, Vt., won his first championship a year ago, with older brother Justin Bishop finishing third overall.  They'll face Chris Cardarelli, former two-time Devil's Bowl champion Mike Clark, and many others.

Founded in 1947, Portland Glass can claim many innovative "firsts" in the business, and has grown to include more than 200 employees with 34 locations in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.  The "home" location for Devil's Bowl Speedway is on South Main Street (Route 7) in Rutland, Vt., which specializes in glass and mirror repair and replacement for every automotive, home, and business application.  For more information, call (802) 775-9720 or visit www.PortlandGlass.com/Rutland-VT.

Devil's Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, Vt., four miles north of Exit 2 off of U.S. Route 4 and just 20 minutes from Rutland, Vt.  For more information, visit www.DevilsBowlSpeedwayVT.com or call (802) 265-3112.  Devil's Bowl Speedway is on Facebook atfacebook.com/DevilsBowlSpeedway and on Twitter and Instagram at @DevilsBowlSpeed; follow the action using the #DevilsBowl hashtag.
