Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park
Second Straight PASS National Championship Series Win
for Hudson, New Hampshire Driver
Thompson, Connecticut - Derek Griffith of Hudson, New Hampshire nailed down his first Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park victory in impressive fashion, outrunning two-time PASS North Super Late Model Champion DJ Shaw to the checkered flag in the Icebreaker 100 Sunday afternoon.

Griffith, who had been a runner-up in Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park Super Late Model competition in the past, started from fifth position. Aboard his LCM Motorsports ride, Griffith battled Saturday heat race winners and early frontrunners Shaw and Reid Lanpher of Manchester, Maine before grabbing the race lead, which he would not relinquish.

Shaw and the Precision JLM 60 team were the best of the rest after leading the race's early stages, with North Carolina invader Jared Irvan posting a hard-earned, third-place finish after a few good on-track battles, most notably with sixth-place finisher Eddie MacDonald.

Lanpher crossed the line in fourth position after rebounding from an unscheduled pit stop. Todd Stone of Middlebury, Vermont filled out the top-five after an impressive late charge aboard the G Stone Motors 1x.

Dillon, Thompson, Richmond, North-South Shootout At Concord And Meltdown At Hickory Fill Out Remainder Of Championship Schedule.

NAPLES, ME (January 26) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials have released the six dates and locations that will make up the 11th Annual PASS National Championship Series. The schedule is comprised of six premier Super Late Model events, at a diverse group of tracks in both PASS North and PASS South, that will determine an overall PASS National Champion. The PASS National Championship Series will see the champion crowned in the final race of the 2018 season at Hickory Motor Speedway in the 13th Annual Mason-Dixon Meltdown 200. And, for the first time ever, the PASS National Championship Series will visit Richmond Raceway in Virginia to headline the inaugural Commonwealth Classic on October 19-20. Additionally, the Spring's most prestigious short track race in the country, the 13th Annual Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway, will now see the top three finishers get guaranteed starting spots, not only for the 45th Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway, but also for the Commonwealth Classic at Richmond.

Since 2008, some of the best short track racers in North America have captured the PASS National Championship including Cassius Clark, Ben Rowe, Preston Peltier, Jay Fogleman, and Joey Doiron. While awards are currently still being finalized, the champion will once again receive a one-of-a-kind championship trophy featuring the American Bald Eagle. Additional awards will be announced at a later date.

"11 years ago, with our presence across the Eastern Seaboard and Canada, we felt the time was right to crown Super Late Model racing's only National champion," said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "This is probably the most diverse schedule we've ever put together with tracks of varying sizes and shapes to compete on. The Oxford 250 continues to be one of the crown jewels of short track racing. And, the addition of Richmond, will put all the competitors on a neutral site for the first time. "

The PASS National Championship Series, along with the 2018 PASS South championship season, gets underway in just one month with the 13th Annual South Carolina Clash at Dillon Motor Speedway in South Carolina on February 24. Fans will get to see drivers from across the spectrum of short track racing as the PASS Super Late Models will race for 200 laps and $6,000 to win and $700 to start, plus a major event for the Dillon Motor Speedway SuperTrucks paying $1000 to win and a UCAR/FWD race paying $500 to win as part of the South
Carolina Clash.

From Dillon Motor Speedway in February, the 2018 PASS National Championship Series will kick off the New England racing season and will be contested again 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 annual Icebreaker weekend April 7-8, along with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. The Icebreaker will also once again double as the PASS North Super Late Model championship season opener.

The PASS National Championship Series will stay in New England for perhaps the most legendary of all short track races. The 45th Annual Oxford 250 at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway on August 26 will continue a tradition that started in 1974 and has seen such winners as Butch Lindley, Geoff Bodine, Junior Hanley, Ricky Craven, 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, plus an additional $25,000 in lap leader money. The 2017 winner, Waterboro, ME's Curtis Gerry, bested over 60 other drivers to claim over $30,000 for his first win in the prestigious race.

The Fall will be busy with the PASS National Championship moving South for the final three events of the season. The PASS Super Late Models will headline the inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway on Saturday night, October 20. The PASS Super Late Models will compete in a 100-lap event on the famed three-quarter mile oval, paying $10,000 to win and $700 to start. Additionally, Late Model Stocks will return to Richmond Raceway for the first time in a number of years, competing in a 75 lap race, paying $7,000 to win and $700 to start. Both the Limited Late Models and Street Stocks will make their first ever starts at Richmond Raceway with the Limiteds racing for 50 laps and $4000 to win and the Street Stocks racing for 25 laps and $2000 to win.

The PASS National Championship Series then moves to Concord Speedway for the 16th Annual North-South Shootout on Saturday, November 10. PASS will be the exclusive Super Late Model tour at Concord Speedway in 2018, with a PASS South event scheduled there for Friday night, May 25. The 2018 North-South Shootout will again be a test of man and machine for 125 laps around the treacherous half-mile triangular speedway. It will be a big weekend of racing that will see the Tour-Type Modifieds also competing for 125 laps in one of the biggest races of the season.

Finally, the PASS National Championship Series will conclude just one week later with the 13th Annual Mason-Dixon Meltdown 200 on Saturday, November 17 at the legendary Hickory Motor Speedway. The 200 lap contest will once again crown both the PASS National Championship Series and PASS South Super Late Model champions.

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, and new for 2018, the inaugural Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway.

NAPLES, ME (January 6) - Coinciding with the series banquet tonight, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials announced the release of the 2018 schedule for the PASS North Super Late Models. The Northeast's top short trackers will once again compete at some of the best speedways in New England and Canada, highlighted by the 45th Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway on the final weekend of August.

The PASS North Super Late Models will compete on 10 different speedways in 4 states and Canada in 2018.

"We believe this is another really great schedule for the PASS North Super Late Models," said PASS President Tom Mayberry. "This year we will celebrate our 18th year of sanctioning races throughout the United States and Canada and we're glad to begin new partnerships, while continuing to build on old ones. The Oxford 250 has found a home with its August date and has solidified its place as one of short track racing's biggest events and we're glad to continue that tradition in 2018."

The 45th Annual Oxford 250 will continue as one of the crown jewel events in short track racing with racers from all across North America set to compete for $25,000 to win, plus guaranteed lap leader money on August 24-26. The 250 will again cap off a full weekend of short track racing action on the famed Oxford Plains Speedway in Maine's biggest sporting event of the year. Last year, Curtis Gerry took home over $30,000 in his first ever win in the 250.

A final tune-up to the Oxford 250 will take place on Sunday, July 29 at Oxford Plains Speedway. In addition, Oxford Plains Speedway will once again host the PASS North Super Late Models on Sunday, April 15, and Sunday May 20 and will crown the PASS North titlist with the season finale on Saturday, October 13.

In 2018, PASS North returns to Canada debuting at Petty International Raceway in New Brunswick on Saturday, June 2. PASS North will also be returning to Speedway 51 in Groveton, NH on Saturday, August 11 for the first time since Trevor Sanborn took the checkered flag there in 2010.
