MEMarch 31, 2006) Early registrations for the new PASS Outlaw Late Model Series are
arriving daily at PASS Headquarters in Naples, ME. The new division has struck a cord with
racers throughout New England. Racers from VT, NH, ME, CT, and MA have signed up in both
the Central and Northern Divisions.
eight races scheduled in both the central and Northern Divisions, many of the racers have
said that they intend to run all 16 races across both divisions for a chance at the
overall series championship as well as the divisional championships.
Derek Ramstrom and his team from W. Boylston, MA said they chose the PASS Outlaw Late
Model Series because they saw a clear progression from the weekly late model type cars to
the big fast PASS Super Late Models that run throughout New England and the Maritimes. And
the addition of the Southern Super Late Model Series only sealed the deal for a young man
with national aspirations. Dereks dad Rick also said that the chance to learn about
touring in a controlled environment by traveling to Maine and New Hampshire tracks was
another attractive feature of the series.
addition to these drivers, we have heard from a number of others who will be signing on in
the coming weeks as we prepare for the season opening 100 lapper at Unity Raceway, Unity,
ME on Sunday April 30th.
November 16, 2005) The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) proudly announces the first season of
the new Outlaw Late Model Series starting in 2006.
The success of the PASS Super Late Model/Pro Stock Series in the last five years and the
growth of the PASS Modifieds over the last two years have drawn many racers and fans to
the racer- and fan-focused approach of PASS racing. This new series has grown out of the
desire of many weekly pro stock racers who have seen their local tracks drop the pro stock
division in an attempt to reduce their costs, and rather than convert them to a lower
division, they have parked their cars. Others have expressed a desire to run with the PASS
Super Late Model/Pro Stocks but do not have the budget to compete at that level or to
handle the expense of touring to the extent that the PASS Series demands.
The new Outlaw Late Model Series offers these competitors a viable option of fast,
competitive pro stock racing with equipment that they currently own under a set of
flexible and inclusive rules that allow a variety of engine and body combinations to race
together in a series that doesnt conflict with weekly Friday or Saturday night shows
at their local tracks. It also gives young racers the opportunity to get their feet wet in
touring and the demands of different tracks as they look to move up to higher divisions
like the PASS Super Late Model/Pro Stocks.
The objective is simple: To bring racers and fans back to the track. We thought that
racers who have been forced out of their weekly tracks and cannot afford the travel and
expense of the PASS Series are out there. We are sure of it now. We have been very
pleasantly surprised by the number of teams from throughout New England that have
requested information and have asked about specific car numbers for the series, especially
teams that do not currently compete at any weekly tracks.
We did two test races at Beech Ridge in September and at Canaan in October
with full fields of cars from ME, NH, MA, RI, and VT. So, we now know that the interest is
genuine across the entire region and with all types of late model and two barrel pro stock
We are working on a six to 10 race schedule of races within New England for the 2006
season, and the schedule should be completed shortly. Travel will be limited, and they
will all be one day shows, except the Beech Ridge PASS 400 Weekend in September.
The rules (on this web site HERE ) are based on the
two-barrel wet sump motor cars that have run as pro stocks and late models throughout New
England. There are spec engine options for the 385 and 400 series Fast Burn motors, the
ZZ4, and other spec motors. There are rules for a variety of bodies including the Outlaw
wedge body. There is a shock expense rule and other cost containment rules. If you have any questions, call Scott Reed at 207-625-3230 between 6 and
