HP Hood Comes On Board To Become Title Sponsor Of
43rd Annual Oxford 250
NAPLES, ME (April 4) - Oxford Plains Speedway owner and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry announced today that Massachusetts-based HP Hood Company will be the title sponsor for the 43rd Annual Oxford 250. The 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 will take place on August 26-28 at Oxford Plains Speedway and will pit the best short track racers in North America against one another, with over $25,000 going to the winner.

"This is a great day for the Oxford 250 and for all the race fans of Maine," said Oxford Plains Speedway's Tom Mayberry. "HP Hood is a company all of us in Maine are proud of and they have stepped up in a big way with their support of this year's 250. It's a natural partnership that will see the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 continue to grow as one of the premier events in all of short track racing."

For more than 160 years, the name Hood(r) has been synonymous with fresh, quality dairy products that taste great. Founded in 1846 in Charlestown, Massachusetts by Harvey Perley Hood, the company has since extended its New England roots, and today Hood is a national company distributing dairy products throughout the United States. In fact, HP Hood LLC is now one of the country's largest branded dairy operators with 13 manufacturing plants throughout the United States. The company also maintains its own research and development operation, which supports the superior product quality and innovation that Hood customers have come to expect.

"Everybody in New England is familiar with HP Hood and the Oxford 250, so it seemed like a perfect fit to team up and make a great new partnership," said Chris Ross Vice-President of Marketing, HP Hood Company. "We have a manufacturing facility in Portland, ME, that's part of our core business, and we have a lot of employees and fans that will be joining us for this year's HP Hood Oxford 250."

Drivers from across North America are already entering the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 and this year's event looks to be one of the biggest in recent memory, with 29 stars already filing entries. The 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 will take place on Sunday, August 28, with $25,000 going to the winner, plus $25,000 in additional lap leader money. The current entry list is led by former HP Hood Oxford 250 winners, Travis Benjamin, Mike and Ben Rowe, Joey Polewarczyk, Glen Luce, 6-time PASS North champion, Johnny Clark, and 2015 PASS South champion, Tate Fogleman, and former PASS National Champions, Joey Doiron and Tate Fogleman.

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 at Hickory Motor Speedway and the legendary HP Hood Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Southern Modified Racing Series Inaugural Season Schedule Complete
CHARLOTTE, NC (January 15) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials and Renee Hackett announced today the final dates on the inaugural Southern Modified Racing Series Presented by PASS schedule. The South's newest Tour-type Modified division will compete 11 times during the 2016 season at eight different speedways. In addition to the previously announced events at Hickory Motor Speedway, Concord Speedway, Anderson Motor Speedway, and Caraway Speedway, the Southern Modified Racing Series Presented by PASS schedule will be filled out by dates at Ace Motor Speedway, Tri-County Motor Speedway, and Dillon Motor Speedway. Additionally, four of those events will be "mega-shows," pairing the Southern Modified Racing Series with the PASS South Super Late Models.

"We are extremely pleased with the schedule we have been able to put together for the debut season of the Southern Modified Racing Series," said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "We've got a great slate of events which will see the Modifieds race on the same card as the PASS South Super Late Models several times in 2016. But, we're very proud to have the Southern Modified Racing Series Presented by PASS schedule filled with a group of tracks that have a strong fan base for the Modifieds."

The inaugural Southern Modified Racing Series Presented By PASS event is scheduled for Saturday, March 26 at Hickory Motor Speedway as part of the 11th Annual Easter Bunny 150 weekend. Along with a PASS National Championship race for the Super Late Models and the first race for the new South East Mini Stock Tour, the prestigious Easter Bunny 150 weekend will only continue to grow in prominence with the addition of the Southern Modified Racing Series.

Following an event at a track to be named soon on Friday night, April 1, the series will move to the newly renamed Ace Motor Speedway in Altamahaw, NC on Friday night, April 22. After the Ace event, the Southern Modified Racing Series will be paired with the PASS South Super Late Models for the next two races on the schedule. The Southern Modified Racing Series will compete on Memorial Day weekend at the ultra-fast Concord Speedway on Friday night, May 27 and then move to Anderson Motor Speedway in South Carolina on Friday night, June 17.

On Saturday night, July 2, the Southern Modified Racing Series will stage a special Independence Day weekend show at a track soon to be named. Then, on Friday night, July 22 the series will move to the racy confines of Tri-County Motor Speedway in Hudson, NC.

On Saturday, August 27, the Southern Modified Racing Series will compete at Caraway Speedway, a long-time favorite of Modified fans in the Carolinas for the first of two shows there in 2016. Then, it's off to Ron Barfield's Dillon Motor Speedway in the South Carolina Pee Dee region for a special Labor Day race on Monday, September 5, the day following the Southern 500 at nearby Darlington Raceway.

The Southern Modified Racing Series will be back at Caraway Speedway on Saturday night, October 22 before heading to Concord Speedway on Friday night, November 4 for a prelude to the 14th Annual North-South Shootout.

"I'm very excited about the schedule we have been able to put together and to do it in such a relatively short period time," says the Southern Modified Racing Series' Renee Hackett.

Sunoco Signs
Multi-Year Agreement
with the
Pro All Stars Series
Naples ME - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry and Sunoco Race Fuels have announced a multi-year agreement making Sunoco Supreme and Standard racing gasoline the official spec fuel for all five PASS touring series through 2011 and beyond.

The Pro All Stars Series sanctions and promotes five racing series in the eastern United States and Canada. 2011 marks the series’ eleventh anniversary.

“Sunoco has been with us from day one,” said Mayberry in making the announcement. “Mike Joy, John Holland, Charlie Holland and the entire crew at New England Race Fuels have played a major role in the growth of our organization from a single northern New England based tour to five individual series with races from Florida to Maritime Canada. As we expanded to the southeast we have had tremendous support from Sunoco distributors such as Hank Thomas Performance, and the fact that most every race track where we compete pumps Sunoco Race Fuel makes it a perfect partnership, one that we hope will continue for many years to come.”

This Year’s 43rd Annual
HP Hood Oxford 250
NAPLES, ME (August 23) - Since the inaugural HP Hood Oxford 250 in 1974, Oxford Plains Speedway's location has helped insure that the "best of the best" in short track racing would have a chance to take on one another. Being in Maine, the HP Hood Oxford 250 has seen the top short trackers from New England, the Midwest, and Canada participate against one another over the last 40 years. But since it's earliest days, the HP Hood Oxford 250 has been a showcase for talent from the Southeastern short track ranks. South Carolina's legendary Butch Lindley took the checkered flag in 1976, while North Carolina's Bob Pressley would take the win two years later, followed by Virginia's Tommy Ellis in 1983. Drivers like Harry Gant, Morgan Shepherd, Tommy Houston, Jimmy Hensley and others made regular stops at the 250 throughout the 1980s and early 1990s.

The tradition continues today as another strong contingent of drivers and teams will be making the trip up from Dixie. Defending Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model champion, Tate Fogleman, from Durham, NC will be attempting his fourth straight HP Hood Oxford 250 this weekend. Fogleman hopes to better the performance of his dad, Jay, who finished third in 2013.

Jamie Yelton's Fathead Racing team competed in their first HP Hood Oxford 250 last year with Tyler Dippel and will return this year with Newport, TN's, Jake Crum. Crum is a former Late Model Stock champion and captured the win in the prestigious Martinsville 300 in 2009. Florida's Dalton Sargeant will be competing in his first HP Hood Oxford 250 this weekend after getting locked in through the PASS "non-winners" race at Oxford Plains in July. Sargeant has been inching closer to victory lane in PASS South as of late, scoring a pair of third place finishes at Hickory and South Boston.

PASS South championship contender, Kodie Conner, will be making the tow from Kannapolis, NC as he attempts his first HP Hood Oxford 250. After capturing the PASS Pro Late Model championship last year, Conner made the move up to Super Late Models in 2016 and is currently in the midst of a tight championship battle with Matt Craig. Conner is excited for his first major stock car race outside of the Carolinas.

"With the race being 250 laps, I feel that will help me with experience and I'm hoping we will be able to come on strong at the end," says Conner, who drives the distinctive looking #45 sponsored by Jerry Conner Insurance and Champion Spark Plugs. "I have done some research on the track and competition and I know it's going to be a tight race. I am going to watch some of the faster guys to learn and go from there. I am super stoked to be competing in my first HP Hood Oxford 250."

While not names you would not necessarily associate with the south, both Austin Theriault and Jeramie Whorff have ties to both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line. Theriault, who grew up in Maine and now lives in North Carolina, was long a fixture on the Maine short tracks before moving on to successful outings with Brad Keselowski Racing and Penske Racing. Theriault just completed a brand new Super Late Model and hopes to be a factor as he seeks his first HP Hood Oxford 250 win. Speaking of wins, Jeramie Whorff shocked the racing world with his 250 win in 2006. Whorff will be seeking his second checkered flag by teaming with the Woodman Racing team. Dicky Woodman made the move down south a few years ago and has gone to victory lane with drivers like Jay Fogleman and Daniel Hemric.

The South will not be the only region featured in Maine this weekend, how ever, as Garrett Evans makes the longest trek of all from Washington State. The multi-time Pacific Northwest Super Late Model champion has traveled over 3000 miles to compete in his first ever HP Hood Oxford 250, a trip that started off with a win at Spokane Super Oval last Friday night. But, Evans is not the first driver to compete at Oxford Plains with ties to the Northwest. Before moving east, Oregon's Chuck Bown captured the checkered flag for the HP Hood Oxford 250 in 1986 and 1990. Evans hopes to compliment his extensive trophy case by joining Bown as a winner of the 250.

The PASS Super Late Models will not be alone in making the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 a celebration of short track racing. A great slate of divisions is set to race starting on Friday, August 26 with the Street Stocks, Outlaws, Rebels, Trucks, Cruisers, Bandits, Legends, and Ladies, plus PASS Super Late Model practice. The PASS Super Late Models be on the track on Saturday, August 27 for practice in the morning, followed by racing in the evening for the ACT Late Models, Valenti Modifieds, PASS Modifieds, Classic Lites, Legends, Mini Stocks, Wicked Good, and Street Stocks. On Sunday, August 28, gates will open bright and early at 7 AM with a full day of on track activities including practice and heat race action for the PASS Super Late Models, followed by features for the PASS Modifieds, Street Stocks, North East Mini Stock Tour, Legends, Rebels, and finally the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 to begin at approximately 5:30 PM.

Entry forms for the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com and OxfordPlains.com.

PASS "Ironman" Seeks Another
HP Hood Oxford 250 Triumph 
NAPLES, ME (August 18) - When you mention the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) to any race fan across North America, there's a good chance that Ben Rowe is the first driver's name that comes to mind. As the PASS North Super Late Model division's "Ironman", Ben Rowe has started every race since the series started in 2001, the only driver to do so. Along the way, Rowe has won 4 PASS North series titles, the 2009 PASS National and PASS South championships, and has won more PASS Super Late Model races than any other driver, nearly 50 when combining both PASS North and South wins.

Rowe, like most every other driver from across the nation, holds the HP Hood Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway in high regard. As a kid, he watched his dad, Mike, go to victory lane in the 1984 running of the 250 and competed against him in Mike's wins in 1997 and 2005.

"The Oxford 250, as it was then known, was the biggest race of the year in the Northeast hands down," said Rowe. "Everybody from down South or out West, when you mentioned that race, they had heard of it. And whether it was the money or the prestige or whatever, everybody wanted to win the 250. To start with, a lot of Southerners came down and had won it and then my dad was the first driver from Maine to win it, so it's always been special for our family."

It was those lessons learned from his dad that helped Ben go to victory lane in the HP Hood Oxford 250 in 2003 and 2004, joining Geoff Bodine, Ralph Nason, and later Eddie MacDonald and Travis Benjamin, as the only back-to-back winners of the 250 (Note: Nason won three straight HP Hood Oxford 250s from 1998-2000). Despite his wins coming just a year apart, each race holds a special place in Ben's heart for different reasons.
"It was something for me to watch my dad try to win the 250 for all those years and finally get it, and then to win it myself meant everything for me because I really knew how hard it was to win," said Rowe. "The second year I won it in 2004, I had to pass Matt Kenseth with just a few laps left to go to win it and that made it pretty special for me."

Ben Rowe has seen a few things change over the years in the HP Hood Oxford 250, especially the cars competing in the race. From the Busch North cars his father raced there to Pro Stocks, now known as Super Late Models, to the slower, heavier Late Models that raced in the 250 from 2007 to 2012.

This season has already been eventful for Ben Rowe and has him excited about his chances for another 250 win. Rowe assured himself a starting sport for this year's race by winning his third Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway in North Carolina. And he followed that up with a win in the first PASS North Super Late Model race of the year at Oxford Plains Speedway after a thrilling three-wide duel with fellow series champions, Johnny Clark and DJ Shaw.

For both Ben and Mike Rowe, it's been a long journey from Turner, ME to the pinnacle of short track racing. But one thing is for sure, as long there is a HP Hood Oxford 250, it's a safe bet the Rowes will be there up near the front. And there's nothing Ben Rowe would love to do more than join his father as a 3-time winner of the 250.

The PASS Super Late Models will not be alone in making the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 a celebration of short track racing. A great slate of divisions is set to race starting on Friday, August 26 with the Street Stocks, Outlaws, Rebels, Trucks, Cruisers, Bandits, Legends, and Ladies, plus PASS Super Late Model practice. The PASS Super Late Models be on the track on Saturday, August 27 for practice in the morning, followed by racing in the evening for the ACT Late Models, Valenti Modifieds, PASS Modifieds, Classic Lites, Legends, Mini Stocks, Wicked Good, and Street Stocks.

On Sunday, August 28, gates will open bright and early at 7 AM with a full day of on track activities including practice and heat race action for the PASS Super Late Models, followed by features for the PASS Modifieds, Street Stocks, North East Mini Stock Tour, Legends, Rebels, and finally the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 to begin at approximately 5:30 PM.

'50 Is Nifty' For Jeff Fultz In
PASS South Action at South Boston
SOUTH BOSTON, VA (August 13) – Veteran Jeff Fultz outlasted a strong field of Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Models Saturday night at South Boston Speedway to take his long awaited first career victory in the series. The win by Fultz was made even more meaningful by the fact that he becomes the 50th different winner in the series dating back to its beginnings in 2006.

“I just love South Boston and I don’t get to race much anymore, plus the guys worked all day in 100 degree heat to get this car right,” said Fultz of his milestone win. “I’ve never won a PASS race, three white flags and we’re leading and the caution comes out and we end up losing. It’s a tough series and they race everywhere. I’ve finally got something to put on my resume that I have been waiting a long time to get.”

Former PASS National Champion, Preston Peltier captured his series leading 20th career quick qualifying time with a lap of 15.607 seconds (92.266 mph) and by luck of the top 10 qualifiers redraw would start on the pole alongside PASS South rookie, Kodie Conner.

On a sweltering night in southern Virginia, Peltier would jump out to the early lead, before the caution would wave on lap 9 when the car of Brandon Setzer slowed due to a broken rear end. On the restart, Florida’s Dalton Sargeant was able to get the advantage over Peltier to take the lead. The caution would fly again on lap 52 when Ron Young spun after a tap from Spencer Davis. PASS South points leader, Matt Craig, narrowly escaped as he spun to avoid Young.

Back under way, Peltier returned the favor to Sargeant as he retook the lead using the outside groove. Several cars were making their way towards the front after poor qualifying runs, including Joey Padgett, Trey Jarrell, and Jared Fryar. Former Oxford 250 winner, Jeramie Whorff, made his way in to the top 10 after starting 19th by passing Fryar on lap 71. The caution would wave again with 66 laps to go after Young spun again in turn three due to contact from Conner.

On the restart, Sargeant would spin his tires allowing Fultz to move into second. After pitting earlier to make adjustments, defending PASS South Super Late Model champion, Tate Fogleman, appeared to have one of the fastest cars on the track, passing Conner for fifth with 39 laps to go. Conner would be forced to stop on the track in turn two with 23 laps to go because of a broken hub.

Peltier led the field to green on the restart, but his machine hesitated, allowing Fultz and Fogleman to sneak by entering turn one. As the field took evasive action for Peltier’s slow start, rookie Chase Purdy spun into the back straightaway wall hard as he tried to clear the lapped machine of John-Michae Shenette. As Purdy and Shenette spun back down the track, several cars would be collected in the pileup, including Craig, Jarrell, Blake Jones, Conner, Tyler Ankrum, and Davis.

Following a red flag to clean up the speedway, Peltier’s car would not fire and he would be forced from the race due to a dead battery.

Fultz took command and would lead the remaining laps for his first win with the LFR Chassis team over Fogleman, Sargeant, Fryar, and Whorff. Rounding out the top 10 would be Padgett, Deac McCaskill, Craig, Hannah Newhouse, and Young.

The PASS South Super Late Models will return to action on Saturday, September 24 for another 150 lapper at Hickory Motor Speedway.

PASS Super Late Model rookie
Derek Griffith triumphant in
150-lapper at Lee USA Speedway

First win for 19-year-old is final series race
before 43rd HP Hood Oxford 250 August 28
Lee, New Hampshire - Pro All Stars Series rookie Derek Griffith of Hudson nailed down his first victory on the region's premier Super Late Model circuit, scoring near home in Friday night's 150-lap race at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, New Hampshire.

Griffith was impressive aboard the Louie Mechalides-prepared racecar, chasing former Thompson Speedway Super Late Model champ Derek Ramstrom for the first 50-plus laps, swapping the lead with the West Boylston, Massachusetts native for most of the remaining laps before pulling away from his rivals during the final handful of laps.

Ramstrom claimed runner-up honors after an entertaining, late-race battle with six-time PASS champion Johnny Clark of Farmingdale, Maine. Clark started the race in tenth position and crossed the finish line third behind Griffith and Ramstrom, remaining a serious threat to claim his seventh series title.

Travis Benjamin of Morrill, Maine was fourth under the checkered flag after starting 16th. Jeremy Davis of Tamworth rounded out the top five. Heat race wins were posted by Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson and Ben Rowe of Turner, Maine.

Griffith's recent win in a 50-lap Budweiser Championship Series Super Late Model race at Oxford Plains Speedway had already established the youngster as a serious HP Hood Oxford 250 threat, and winning the final PASS race before the 43rd annual classic has short track odds makers rethinking their strategies.

Ben Tinker of New Gloucester, Maine prevailed in the 30-lap race for PASS Mods. It was the second win of the season for Tinker, a rookie in the class. Tinker is no stranger to victory lane at Lee USA Speedway, with a couple of victories in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Small Block Supermodifieds on his resume.

Geoff Rollins of Groton, Massachusetts, another racer with extensive experience at Lee, led the early laps and chased Tinker across the start-finish line. Dana Reed of Shapleigh, Maine claimed the third-place trophy.

Reigning PASS Mods champion and current points leader Andy Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire was the fourth-place finisher, with Dixfield, Maine's Ryan Robbins rounding out the top five.

The next Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model race is the 43rd annual HP Hood Oxford 250, scheduled for Sunday, August 28 at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine. For more information please call (207) 539-8865.

43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250
Attracting Drivers From Across
North America; Entry List Over 50
NAPLES, ME (August 9) - Ever since the first HP Hood Oxford 250 was held at Oxford Plains Speedway in 1974, it has attracted not only the best short track racers from New England, but from across North America. In that first event won by Joey Kourafas, the precedent was set that short track racing's best would assemble at Oxford for the 250. In addition to the talented group of drivers from New England in the field that day, Southern aces Bosco Lowe and 1963 Daytona 500 winner Tiny Lund competed along with a strong group of Canadian drivers led by Jean Paul Cabana. In fact, the early years of the HP Hood Oxford 250 were dominated by Southern drivers such as Butch Lindley, Bob Pressley, and Tommy Ellis. The first Canadian to taste HP Hood Oxford 250 glory was Don Biederman in 1977.

This year, the tradition continues at the HP Hood Oxford 250 with drivers from outside the Northeast coming into challenge New England's best on their "home" field. With several weeks remaining before the race, the entry list has grown to over 50. Among those who have already entered are Pacific Northwest legend Garrett Evans, who will be attempting the HP Hood Oxford 250 for the first time in his illustrious career. Since first competing with PASS in "The Race" at North Wilkesboro Speedway in 2011, the Wenatchee, WA native has made several PASS South starts, but this will be only his second time ever competing at Oxford Plains. Defending PASS Pro Late Model champion and current PASS South Super Late Model championship contender, Kodie Conner, will make the trip from Kannapolis, NC for his first attempt at the 250.

Likewise, Boca Raton, FL driver Dalton Sargeant returns to Oxford Plains Soeedway after locking up a spot in the 250 via the PASS "non-winners" race back in July. Sargeant impressed in his first PASS South starts in late 2014 and is hoping for big things in his return to Oxford Plains.

"Really looking forward to Oxford Plains Speedway and returning for my first try at the 250," says Sargeant, driver of the Windows 10/Lane Automotive Toyota Camry #55. "I cut my teeth racing in the PASS South Series, it was home to a few of my very first starts in a Super Late Model, so the series is like home for me."

Canadian drivers have long been a part of the history and tradition of the HP Hood Oxford 250, but none has gone to victory lane since Canada's three year streak of winning came to an end with Dave Whitlock's victory in 1995. New Brunswick's Matt Matheson will attempt to make the HP Hood Oxford 250 after competing with PASS North this year and finishing third in the 2013 PASS National Championship standings. Multi-time Maritime champion, John Flemming, also returns this year and will be making the tow from Nova Scotia.

With echoes of races past reverberating through Oxford's famed grandstands, tradition lives as fans and racers can be assured that only the best in short track racing will be vying for a shot to go to victory lane on Sunday in the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250.

But the PASS Super Late Models will not be alone in making the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 a celebration of short track racing. A great slate of divisions is set to race starting on Friday, August 26 with the Street Stocks, Outlaws, Rebels, Trucks, Cruisers, Bandits, Legends, and Ladies, plus PASS Super Late Model practice. The PASS Super Late Models be on the track on Saturday, August 27 for practice in the morning, followed by racing in the evening for the ACT Late Models, Valenti Modifieds, PASS Modifieds, Classic Lites, Legends, Mini Stocks, Wicked Good, and Street Stocks. On Sunday, August 28, gates will open bright and early at 7 AM with a full day of on track activities including practice and heat race action for the PASS Super Late Models, followed by features for the PASS Modifieds, Street Stocks, North East Mini Stock Tour, Legends, Rebels, and finally the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 to begin at approximately 5:30 PM.

Entry forms for the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com and OxfordPlains.com. The PASS North Super Late Models and PASS Modifieds will be in action again on Friday night, August 12 at Lee USA Speedway. Entry forms for upcoming PASS action at Lee, South Boston and the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com

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 at Hickory Motor Speedway and the legendary HP Hood Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Luce Looks To Join Elite Company
In Defense Of HP Hood
Oxford 250 Title
NAPLES, ME (August 3) - Since it's inception in 1974, the HP Hood Oxford 250 has been an event that can make\ a racecar driver's career. Annually, one of the better attended races in asphalt short track racing, the HP Hood Oxford 250 will once again take place on August 26-28 at the legendary Oxford Plains Speedway, paying $25,000 to the winner. With additional lap leader bonus money also on the line, this year's HP Hood Oxford 250 winner could potentially take home up to $50,000.

With his win in the inaugural event, Joey Kourafas cemented his name in the record books. Short track legend and South Carolina racer, Butch Lindley, became the first driver outside of New England to win when he took the checkered flag in 1976. And the race took on international significance when Ontario's Don Biederman claimed the win just one year later. But, the HP Hood Oxford 250, has also seen surprise winners like Scott Robbins, Jeramie Whorff, and Roger Brown. For many, that was the case when Turner, ME's Glen Luce dominated to take the win last year. But, Luce has quietly shown himself to be one of the strongest drivers in the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Model division over the last couple of years. And Luce has definitely noticed a difference since winning one of short track racing's most challenging events.

"I guess the biggest change I've noticed is that I've probably signed more autographs in the last year since winning than I did in a lifetime of prior racing," says Luce, driver of the Steven's Electric and Pump Service #7L. "The team has just really come together. We changed setups a little bit as far as percentages, went to a 604 crate. All of the ingredients just worked, plus having a fabulous crew."

If Luce can capture another win this year, he will join an elite group of just five drivers that have been able to win back-to-back HP Hood Oxford 250s. Former Daytona 500 winner, Geoff Bodine, became the first driver to win in consecutive years with his wins in 1980-1981, followed by Ralph Nason, who is the only driver to three-peat, winning in 1998-2000. Ben Rowe, Eddie MacDonald, and most recently, Travis Benjamin, are the only other drivers who have managed to find the magic to the 250 for two years in a row. Sitting fifth in PASS North Super Late Model points and with a win at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in May, Luce feels good about his chances to join this elite "club."

"Finding the answer to the 250 is huge because it has changed so many drivers careers, like Ricky Craven for instance," says Luce. "It has definitely given me some pretty big shoes to fill coming back to defend. There's a lot of pressure, but we just have to do our thing and worry about our team and stay consistent."

Among those who have already entered are Pacific Northwest legend Garrett Evans, who will be attempting the Oxford 250 for the first time in his illustrious career, 6-time PASS North Super Late Model champion, Johnny Clark, the 2014 series champion and current points leader, DJ Shaw, 2-time PASS National Champion, Jay Fogleman, and his son, Tate, himself the defending PASS South Super Late Model champion, former champion Cassius Clark, and 2015 PASS National Champion, Joey Doiron.

3-Time HP Hood Oxford 250 winner, Mike Rowe, is joined on the entry list by fellow 250 winners, Travis Benjamin and Joey Polewarcyzk. The state of Maine will be well represented by Reid Lanpher, David Oliver, Richie Dearborn, Alan Wilson, Dave Farrington, Jr., Mike Hopkins, Adam Polvinen, Scott Mulkern, Tim and TJ Brackett, Dennis Spencer, Jr., Wyatt Alexander, Scott Robbins, Jacob Dore, Garrett Hall, Shawn Martin, Gary Smith, Tracy Gordon, Larry Gelinas, Dan McKeague, Corey Bubar, Jeff Taylor, and veteran Kelly Moore.

New Hampshire natives Bryan Kruczek and Jeremy Davis will be hoping to return to victory lane in the biggest race of the year, along with fellow Granite State driver Derrick Griffith. Massachusetts' Derek Ramstrom is hoping his big race experience will pay off and will be joined by fellow New Englanders Travis Stearns, Kyle Desouza, Brent Dragon, and North Carolina transplants, Ben Lynch and John-Michael Shenette. Michael Scorzelli will make the trip from New York as well as New Brunswick's Matt Matheson, who will be looking for a win as he tries to take the trophy north of the border.
Entry forms for the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com and OxfordPlains.com. It will be a big weekend of action that will also feature the PASS Modifieds, ACT Late Models, Valenti Modified Series, the North East Mini Stock Tour, and much, much more.

The PASS North Super Late Models and PASS Modifieds will be in action again on Friday night, August 12 at Lee USA Speedway. Entry forms for upcoming PASS action at Lee, South Boston and the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com

The move of the Oxford 250 to August solidified its place as one of short track racing's biggest events and we're glad to continue that in 2016. We're also excited to once again be returning to Thompson and White Mountain next year."

Maine's Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, with continued support from Southern Maine Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep, will host the PASS North Super Late Models three times in 2016 on Saturday, April 30, Saturday, July 9, and the inaugural New England 500 on September 17-18. On Saturday, September 17, the PASS Super Late Models and ACT Late Models will qualify, with feature racing for the Valenti Modifieds and support divisions. On Sunday, September 18, the New England 500 will consist of the PASS 300 for the PASS Super Late Models and the Fall Foliage 200 for the ACT Late Models.

Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Continues Tradition as Spring’s Premier Super Late Model Event

Greenville-Pickens, Thompson, Beech Ridge, And Concord Fill Out Remainder Of Championship Schedule
NAPLES, ME (December 23) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials have released the six dates and locations that will make up the 2016 PASS National Championship Series. The schedule is comprised of six premier Super Late Model events in both PASS North and PASS South that will determine an overall PASS National Champion. The PASS National Series will be highlighted once again by the prestigious 43rd Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway in August. And, the PASS National Championship Series will return to Connecticut's Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park for the first time since 2010. While awards are currently still being finalized, the champion will once again receive a unique championship ring, while team members will receive championship belt buckles, from longtime PASS supporter, Northern Race Tire.

"Thanks to a lot of time and effort by a group of really dedicated people, we are very pleased to announce our 2016 PASS National Series,'" said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "These events exemplify what's great about short track racing and we feel each of them will attract the best Super Late Model drivers from across the continent. All of these events are unique and will prove to be a challenge for our competitors. With events from Maine to South Carolina, a broad base of fans will get to see racers from all over North America come together to crown Super Late Model racing's only true National Champion."

The PASS National Championship Series gets underway in just over a month with the Winter Meltdown at Greenville-Pickens Speedway in South Carolina on February 6. In addition to a talented group of PASS regulars, former PASS National Champions Ben Rowe, Joey Doiron and Jay Fogleman, who returns in 2016 to race for the national title, hope to contain a strong contingent of drivers from the United States and Canada as they tackle the tough, flat half-mile speedway for 150 green flag laps. Fittingly on Super Bowl weekend, fans will get to see drivers from across the spectrum of short track racing as big events for the South East Limited Late Models, Southeast Supertrucks, and Mini Stocks will also be taking place as part of the Winter Meltdown.

From Greenville-Pickens Speedway in February, it is back to the most traditional stop on the PASS National Championship Series, Hickory Motor Speedway in North Carolina on March 26. The 11th Annual Easter Bunny 150 will continue in 2016 as one of short track racing's biggest events of the Spring. Since veteran Mike Rowe won the first Easter Bunny 150 back in 2006, Hickory Motor Speedway's hallowed victory lane has been cherished by every Super Late Model driver that has followed in his tire tracks. This year's Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory will also be the inaugural event of the most anticipated new series in the country, the Southern Modified Racing Series Presented By PASS.

Race three of the 2016 PASS National Championship Series will be the first of the year in New England and will be contested at one of the fastest tracks in the country. The PASS Super Late Models will compete for 75 laps at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Connecticut as part of the Icebreaker weekend April 9-10, along with the NASCAR Whelen Modfieds. PASS returns to Thompson Speedway for the first time since 2012 in an event that will also double as the PASS North Super Late Model season opener.

The next race on the 2016 PASS National Championship Series will be at perhaps the most legendary of all short track races. The 43rd Annual Oxford 250 at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway on August 28 will continue a tradition that started in 1974 and has seen such winners as Butch Lindley, Geoff Bodine, Junior Hanley, Ricky Craven, Mike and Ben Rowe, Kevin Harvick, and Kyle Busch. And, with one of the richest purses in all of Super Late Model racing, the Oxford 250 should once again attract North America's best drivers, all competing for the $25,000 winner's share. This year, Turner, ME's Glen Luce bested over 70 other drivers to claim over $30,000 for his first win in the prestigious race.

Next up, the PASS National Championship Series will hold its final race of the year in New England at another traditional stop, the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, ME. The PASS 400 Weekend at Beech Ridge on September 16-18 is always a favorite for both fans and competitors and this year's contest will be no different.

The PASS National Championship Series will conclude on November 5 at Concord Speedway with the 14th Annual North-South Shootout. PASS made a successful return to Concord in 2015 with events in May and November. The 2016 North-South Shootout will again be a test of man and machine around the treacherous half-mile triangular speedway. It will be a big weekend of racing that will see the inaugural Southern Modified Racing Series Presented By PASS champion crowned the night before and the PASS South Super Late Model champion also crowned on Saturday, November 5.

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 PASS South's Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.

South Super Late Model Schedule
CHARLOTTE, NC (November 10) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials announced today the final three dates on the 2016 PASS South Super Late Model schedule. The South's longest running Super Late Model series will return to Anderson Motor Speedway in South Carolina, while Hickory Motor Speedway will receive a third PASS South Super Late Model event in the fall of 2016. East Carolina Motor Speedway in Robersonville, NC joins the PASS South schedule for the first time in 2016 and will fill out the 11th anniversary season's slate of races. The 2016 season will consist of 15 races at 8 speedways in three states.

Anderson Motor Speedway in upstate South Carolina will host the PASS South Super Late Models on Friday night, June 17 in an action filled night which will also see the NASCAR Late Model Stocks, BM Modifieds, Legends, and Front Wheel Drive divisions in action. It will be a busy doubleheader weekend for the PASS South racers, who will also compete the following night at Hickory Motor Speedway.

Speaking of Hickory Motor Speedway, the legendary track which has operated since 1951, will host the PASS South Super Late Models three times in 2016. PASS returns to its longest running speedway on Saturday night, September 24, joining the previously announced 11th Annual Easter Bunny 150 on Saturday, March 26 and the event scheduled for Saturday night, June 18.

East Carolina Motor Speedway in Robersonville, NC has become one of the premier facilities in eastern North Carolina and will complete the 2016 PASS South Super Late Model with an event there on Saturday night, July 30. While the tricky 3/8 mile, D-shaped speedway will be hosting PASS for the first time in 2016, it will not be the first time Super Late Models have raced there. Throughout the 1980's and 1990's, East Carolina was well known for featuring what was then known as the Late Model Sportsman division. The PASS South Super Late Models continue to be very popular with area fans and thanks to the Perry family, PASS will return to eastern North Carolina for their only visit in 2016.

The 2016 PASS South Super Late Model season will begin on the weekend of February 5-6 at Greenville-Pickens Speedway with the return of the Winter Meltdown, which will also feature the Limited Late Models and Trucks divisions in action. The final race of 2016 will be the 14th Annual North-South Shootout at Concord Speedway on November 4-5, featuring PASS along with the Tour-type Modifieds and additional support divisions.

With the completion of next year's PASS South Super Late Model schedule, look for the entire 2016 PASS North Super Late Model schedule to be released in the coming days.

PASS also recently announced that the biggest short track race on asphalt, the 43rd Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway in Maine will take the green on Sunday, August 28, 2016, paying $25,000 to the winner plus lap leader bonus money.
