Jessey Mueller will make his return to Airborne Park Speedway for the 2017 racing season

PLATTSBURGH- Jessey Mueller will make his return to Airborne Park Speedway for the 2017 racing season. The Olmsteadville driver returns after spending the last two seasons racing in the Capital District.
              Previously, Mueller participated in the 358-Modified division and 602-Sportsman division on the asphalt at Airborne where he was able to find some success. This season, he will return to Plattsburgh with a new Small Block 358-Modified. Mueller plans to run for the championship this season. 
              "I feel like we are at a point where we have the best equipment we've ever had," Mueller said. "I have a lot of confidence here and love the high banking, it fits my style."
              In addition to Airborne, Mueller will return as a regular at the Albany-Saratoga Speedway (Malta) in Ballston Spa. He will also hit the road to follow the DIRTcar 358-Modified Tour. The tour will begin August 11 and continue through October 14.Stops on the tour include Autodrome Granby, Le RPM Speedway and Autodrome Drummond in Quebec, Ontario tracks, Cornwall Speedway and Brockville Speedway and Mohawk International Raceway, Can-Am Motorsports Park, Utica-Rome Speedway, Weedsport Speedway, Brewerton Speedway and Oswego Speedway.
              The Super DIRTcar Big Block Modified Series is also on the schedule, on a part-time basis for Mueller Motorsports. Having already competed in the DIRTcar Nationals at the Volusia Speedway Park in Florida, he will hit some of the more local shows including the show at Airborne on Thursday, July 6 but he will not be a regular in that series. 
              Mueller points towards his last two seasons at Malta as a reason why he has become confident behind the wheel on dirt. 
              "They have some of the best drivers in the northeast and competing against them has only made me a better driver."
              Jessey added that the change in surface will provide a challenge to the Airborne asphalt regulars. 
              "Dirt racing is much harder than asphalt," Mueller noted. "I learned that first hand in my first season at Malta."
              Sponsors are always an important part of racing and without good sponsors, this sport isn't possible. Mueller noted that he has some returning and some new sponsors. Sheehan Construction, Big Al's Sealcoating, Gioiosa's Wine & Spirits and Eric and Sherry Laundry of Freihofers. 
              "The Small Block is a lot of fun to drive and I love the facility, I'm looking forward to Airborne in 2017."
              The racing season kicks off on May 6 with a 7 P.M. post time. For more information and to stay up to date, visit airborneparkspeedway.com or Facebook at Airborne Park Speedway.

PASS North Stars Ready For Thaw To Begin At Thompson’s Icebreaker

PASS North Stars Ready For Thaw To Begin At Thompson's Icebreaker


For Immediate Release

NAPLES, ME (April 5) – After a long winter break, one that got extended a week due to nearly a foot of snow, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Model drivers from across New England and Canada are ready to tackle Connecticut's Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park this weekend for the first race of 2017. 

In addition to being the first action of the season for New England's top short trackers, The 43rd Annual Icebreaker also serves as part of the PASS National Championship Series.  Following the first two events held in the south at Dillon in February and Orange County in March, 4-Time PASS National Champion, Ben Rowe, finds himself out in front of the standings, but one driver believes Thompson could be his chance to cut into that advantage.  Hudson, NH's Joey Polewarcyzk currently sits sixth in the PASS National Championship and feels optimistic for his opportunity at The Icebreaker.

"It's exciting, I've never raced a Super Late Model there before," said Polewarcyzk, returning to the seat of the family-owned Pole's Automotive Ford #97 this weekend.  "It's fast, there's a lot of history there, and I'm excited to run one of these Super Late Models there.  It should be a lot of fun and it's always good to get the season going."

Polewarcyzk is coming off his best ever season competing in PASS, having won three North races in just a limited number of starts in 2017.  But it is at the big tracks, like Thompson, that Polewarcyzk believes he can stake his claim for a PASS National Championship.

"We've been fortunate and had some good runs at some of the bigger tracks and hopefully we can do the same at Thompson," says Polewarcyzk.  "It's got kinda short corners and long straightaways, so you've gotta get into the corners just right and come off the banking and drive it back down.  We've been there with a couple of cars, different types of cars, so hopefully that plays in a little bit and we can have an edge with experience."

In addition to Rowe, Polewarcyzk will be joined by fellow National Championship contenders Dave Farrington, Jr., Derek Griffith, and Sarah Cornett-Ching.  Defending Thompson winner, Garrett Hall, will be back looking for another win along with Oxford 250 winners, Travis Benjamin and Glen Luce, as well as former champions, Johnny Clark and DJ Shaw, and contenders Derek Ramstrom and Joey Doiron.

            Action gets under way at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on Saturday, April 8 with rotating practice for all divisions.  On Sunday, April 9, gates will open at 9 AM and feature events set to go green at 12:35 PM.

Entry forms for The Icebreaker at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, along with the Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory, events at Oxford Plains Speedway, Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, and the 44th Annual Oxford 250, can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com.  The 2017 license forms for the PASS Super Late Models are also available at ProAllStarsSeries.com.  Drivers purchasing licenses for the 2017 season will receive bonus points for each race they are pre-registered for and will also save money towards any events that they enter early.

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 Easter Bunny 150 and the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 at Hickory Motor Speedway and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.  For media or marketing questions, please contact Alan Dietz at 704-231-2039 or alandietzpass@live.com.  Please visit ProAllStarsSeries.com for more information and don't forget to "Like" the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter at @PASSSLM14 to keep up with breaking news as it happens.
