PASS South

Alex Haase Wins Championship

CHARLOTTE, NC (January 6) - Since the inception of the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model division in 2006 the series has seen a varied group of drivers claim the championship.  In 2006, PASS North veteran Mike Rowe made the long trek down from Maine to compete in every race that season, winning two races to become the first ever PASS South champion. Last year, Texas native Ryan Lawler used experiences gained from his championship battle with Rowe the previous year to win two races and bring the championship back to the South.  Coming into 2008, most racing minds agreed that the 2008 championship could very well go to Corey Williams. After all, he was coming off a season that saw him win three PASS South races in just seven starts.  And, at the 2008 PASS South season opener at Hickory Motor Speedway, Williams dominated the second half of the Easter Bunny 150 to take his fourth career win.  It looked to be a long season for anybody else hoping to win the title in 2008, but along the way, somebody forgot to tell Alex Haase.

Haase came to the PASS South Super Late Model division after a long tenure of racing on the West Coast.  Wins in the Bandoleros and Legends Car division led to races and wins driving Super Late Models at The Bullring at Las Vegas and at the Irwindale Speedway in California.  It was his Legends Car racing, though, that led to Haase's opportunity with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kyle Busch

"His dad and my dad worked at a Ford dealership in Las Vegas years and years ago," said Busch of his relationship with the Haase family.  "Alex started racing Bandoleros and I sort of helped him out and was talking to him about maybe doing more.  I was looking for something that was a good series to put him [Haase] in and something that he could go after a points championship with and get some recognition out of and that's why we decided to go with PASS."

Coming into the 2008 season, Haase had little PASS South experience to fall back on having attempted only one race and failing to qualify for that one (the 2006 Mason-Dixon Meltdown at South Boston Speedway).  Being a virtual rookie with PASS South in 2008, the results showed in Haase's first two starts.  Haase finished 21st at Hickory after being involved in a couple of accidents and followed that up with an eighth place finish at the Watermelon Capital Speedway in Georgia.  From there, Haase began to find his stride. Haase finished third at the Motor Mile Speedway despite an incident with Trevor Sanborn that sent him to the rear of the field and followed that up with a sixth place finish in his first trip to Orange County Speedway.

Entering the summer months, Haase was fully entrenched as a championship contender along with Williams.  In June, the PASS South Super Late Models made their first trip to the tight quarter-mile Wake County Speedway just outside of Raleigh, NC.  The race looked to be a duel between former Wake County Speedway champion Alex Fleming and Williams, who was used to racing on this type of track from his days back in Maine.  Surely enough, Fleming led the early laps before fading back, handing the lead to Williams.  All the while, Haase was methodically making his way up from the middle of the field.  Near the halfway point, Haase would take the lead from Williams and never looked back to take his first PASS South victory in the Capital City Clash.

From there, PASS South teams and drivers headed to the legendary Greenville-Pickens Speedway for the Firecracker 125.  In front of a packed house, Haase looked to gain points on Williams after Williams had to start in the back after a problem in qualifying.  At the drop of the green flag, Justin Wakefield established himself as the driver to beat opening up a straightaway lead over Haase.  While this was going on, Williams wowed the crowd by passing cars on the extreme outside groove of the flat half mile track.  Wakefield would be eliminated in a crash on a late race restart leaving Williams and Haase to duel it out for the win.  Despite being the stronger of the two cars on long runs, Williams did not have enough laps on the green-white-checker restart and Haase would go on to score his second straight victory.

The middle of the year would see Haase and all of the championship contenders struggle.  Haase was eliminated in an early crash at Orange County's Southern Sizzler and would finish 24th.  At Dillon, Haase suffered a flat tire while leading forcing him to pit under green which resulted in a ninth place finish.  Haase came back from a spin at Caraway to finish second and at Newport another flat tire resulted in a disappointing tenth place finish.

Coming back to Greenville-Pickens for the Howler 150, the championship battle was down to a three man fight between Williams, Haase, and Perry Brown.  The weekend started badly for Haase after he lost an engine in practice and had to qualify his back-up car with very little practice in it. In qualifying, Haase was barely able to crack the top 20.  The early stages of the race would be dominated by Greenville regulars Toby Porter and Randy Porter.  Williams' championship hopes took a nosedive when he had to retire his car due to a mechanical issue.  Meanwhile, Haase had been slowly making his way to the front to challenge new front runners Adam Bates and Jeff Fultz.  The three drivers waged war over the final 15 laps with Haase nearly losing control down the back straightaway.  Haase managed to take the lead and hold on for his third win of the 2008 season.  Haase's win coupled with Williams' problem allowed Haase to take the points lead heading into the final race at South Boston.

Early on in the Mason Dixon Meltdown at South Boston, Haase and Williams had strong runs going behind race leader and PASS North champion Johnny Clark. Haase made a charge on Clark prior to the halfway mark, but a mechanical problem heading into turn one sent Haase's Toyota hard into the outside wall.  Despite a setback that could have cost him the championship, Haase's Kyle Busch Foundation crew worked hard to get their car repaired for the second half of the race.  The hard work paid off when Williams' championship hopes were dashed due to a crash just past the halfway break.  Haase soldiered on to finish 12th and would win the 2008 PASS South championship by 16 points over Williams.

Haase looks to defend his title in 2009, but it will be a tall order indeed with many new teams coming to PASS next year and many existing teams upgrading their equipment for the new season.  On behalf of everyone with PASS, we wish you a Happy and Safe New Year and look forward to seeing all of you in 2009!

Although the 2008 season is over, it won't be long before the 2009 season begins.  The 2009 PASS South schedule was recently released and will begin on Saturday, March 14, 2009, with the Fourth Annual South Carolina Clash at the Dillon Motor Speedway in Dillon, SC.

Johnny Clark wins Mason-Dixon - Alex Haase is PASS South Champion

Johnny Clark turned in a dominate performance Saturday night at  Virginia's South Boston Speedway to win the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South 250 lap season finale. It was the 2008 PASS North champion's first win in the South series and Clark's fourth checkered flag in his last eight PASS super late model starts.


Clark beat Jeff Fultz to the line by a margin of 2.223 seconds.  Cassius Clark raced home third with Trevor Sanborn in the fourth spot and Randy Porter fifth. DJ Shaw, Kelly Moore, Ryan Blaney, Lonnie Sommerville and Corey Williams finished sixth through tenth.  The top eight finished on the lead lap.


Alex Haase's Kyle Busch Foundation Toyota looked like a super late model "cutaway" car after 250 laps, but the eighteen year old's twelfth place finish was enough to clinch the PASS South super late model Championship for the Las Vegas Nevada native that now calls North Carolina  home. Haase earned three race wins, six top five and nine top ten finishes in twelve PASS South starts on his way to the title.


Haase topped Johnny Clark by nine-one thousandths of a second to capture the RC2 Race City Race Cars Pole Award.

Haase PASS South Winner at Greenville-Pickens - Cassius Clark is National Champ


Alex Haase drove under Justin Wakefield in the closing laps of Saturday's Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Howler 150 super late model feature at Greenville-Pickens Speedway to capture his third PASS victory of 2008 in his #51 Kyle Busch Foundation Toyota Camry.Haase edged out Warner New Hampshire's Adam Bates and Goldsboro North Carolina's Jeff Fultz for the victory. Trey Mitchell and Toby Porter rounded out the top five. Haase swept both PASS South events at Greenville-Pickens in 2008.


Toby Porter led the way in time trials with a lap of 20.207 seconds, besting Justin Wakefield (20.276) and John Wes Townley (20.284) for the RC2 Race City Race Cars Pole award. Canadian Lonnie Summerville won the last chance qualifier over Mark Gibson and Clete Caywood.


Cassius Clark pulled the number one spot in the top ten redraw to start the race from the pole. Clark and his fellow PASS National Championship contender John Stancill got together on lap 90, ending Clark's night. Although Stancill continued on for an eighth place finish, Clark's finishes in the first three National Championship rounds were enough to top Stancill for the inaugural PASS National title.


Haase's win, coupled with  a 22nd place finish by Corey Williams unofficially puts Haase on top of the PASS South standings as the series heads into its final events of 2008.


The  fastest full fendered racers in the east will travel to Virginia's South Boston Speedway on Friday and Saturday October 24 and 25 for the  Mason-Dixon 500, a short track spectacular that will feature twin 250 lap features for the PASS Super Late Models and NASCAR Late Model Stock Cars.  Each feature will pay a whopping $10,000.00 to the winner.

Jay Fogleman Scores First PASS South Win

Jay Fogleman surprised even himself when he drove his JFco Motorsports Ford No. 4 Super Late Model to victory on Sept. 6 in the Daniel Boone Classic 125 PASS South race at Newport (Tenn.) Speedway.

"We really ran good," said the short-track racing veteran from Durham, N.C., a regular in the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series. "We were running third late in the race when the leaders got tangled up in front of us; I think someone had a tire go down. They got together and we were there to take advantage of it."

Until this season Fogleman had never driven an offset chassis, straight-rail Super Late Model, building his career in Late Model Stock Cars before running some in what is now the Nationwide Series and settling in Pro Cup. But there's nothing like a win to keep a racer coming back for more.

"I really enjoy running with PASS," Fogleman said. "I'm not running for points, so it's pretty low-key, and there's no stress. It's me and the guys in my shop going racing.

"It's extremely competitive," Fogleman continued. "There are seven to ten serious operations over there. The series fits me because it's a tire-management series, and I learned how to manage tires early in my career; when I raced Late Models at Orange County and South Boston the features were 150 laps. And the double-file restarts make it exciting for the fans and fun to race."

Fogleman's using an old car he obtained from Gary St. Amant to run in PASS this year, but he may have something new in 2009.

"I'm going to have to buckle down to do more PASS racing next season," Fogleman said. "This old car served its purpose, though; I really didn't expect to win so soon. That just shows what a good job Jeremy Upchurch and Will Bradford have done at the shop and helping me at the track. We're definitely going to do more of this next year when it doesn't conflict with my Hooters deal."

The Mason-Dixon 500 at South Boston Speedway and the Thanksgiving Classic at Southern National Raceway Park are next up on Fogleman's PASS schedule.

Wakefield Back in PASS South Victory Lane at Caraway

Naples ME - (September 1, 2008) Every racer knows that before you can win, you must put yourself in position to win. Saturday night, Justin Wakefield did just that in the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Piedmont 125 presented by presented by 93.1 FM The Wolf at Caraway Speedway.

Wakefield ran at the front of the field all night long and was sitting in third when race leader Alex Haase got a bump from Mark Gibson on lap 122 of the 125 lap PASS feature. The contact slid Haase back to sixth, Gibson was sent to the tail end of the field and Wakefield was suddenly the new race leader. Wakefield survived two more restarts to claim the victory over Haase and Bradley McCaskill. Gibson raced back to fourth at the checkers and Dean Clattenburg completed the top five

Wakefield now has a two race win streak in PASS South super late model competition after scoring his first on August 2nd in the South Carolina Clash at Dillon Motor Speedway.

It was a tough night at the races for several of the front runners in the PASS South championship battle. Point leader Corey Williams wound up twelfth after a wreck knocked him out of the top three with two to go. Perry Brown took a hard shot into the wall on lap two to end his night; Brown was 22nd in the final run down. Haase and Gibson salvaged second and fourth place finishes respectively, but fourth place points man Heath Hindman was credited with 20th spot after mechanical woes ended his day.

PASS South's 3rd Annual
South Carolina Clash
Sunday, August 3rd

Justin Wakefield's been on the verge of his first Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South win throughout the 2008 season and Sunday afternoon he sealed the deal, racing under Alex Haase and Jay Fogelman to snag the lead and drive away from the field in Sunday's South Carolina Clash 125 at Dillon Motor Speedway. Wakefield joins Zach Stroupe, Alex Haase, Perry Brown and Trevor Sanborn on the list of drivers who've paid their first visit to PASS South super late model victory lane in 2008.

Alex Fleming proved that he is knocking on the door to victory lane himself, coming home a career best second after a fierce battle with Perry Brown (3rd), Jay Fogleman (4th) and PASS South point leader Corey Williams (5th).

Wakefield set yet another fast time, but the redraw put the Carswell Motorsports 98 fifth on the grid. Wakefield wasted little time getting out front and he was the leader of the pack on lap ten.

Temperatures approaching 100 degrees made for a slick Dillon Motor Speedway, and all the front runners were slipping and sliding, including Wakefield. Near the half way mark Wakefield lost the top spot to Alex Haase when he slipped up the race track while battling Fogleman for the lead.

Haase, Fogleman and Wakefield were lined up first through third on a lap 89 restart but when the green flew Haase washed up the speedway with a flat tire, taking Fogleman with him and giving Wakefield the opening he needed to reclaim the lead and the checkers.

PASS South gets back on track Saturday August 30th at the Caraway Speedway in Asheboro North Carolina.

Haase Battles PASS Stars at Wake County and Wins

First Triumph in PASS Super Late Models for Kyle Busch Development Driver

NAPLES, ME (June 23, 2008) - In recent weeks in the PASS Super Late Model tours, fans have been treated to witnessing several first-time winners. Zach Stroupe at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, VA; Trevor Sanborn at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC; and DJ Shaw at Wiscasset Raceway in Maine. Now you can add another name to that list, Alex Haase.

The 18-year-old Haase took the lead on lap 47 at Wake County Speedway (NC) from 2007 track champion Alex Fleming and held off the advances of current PASS South point leader Corey Williams and series winner Heath Hindman for the victory in the 150-lap "Capital City Clash." It was his first victory in PASS Super Late Model action.

"I have run late models around the country, so I know what it takes to do it," commented Haase, who is a Las Vegas native. "It is cool to get the first win on the East coast. We had a blast; this is a fun racetrack.

"We just took our time and took what was given to us. I knew when I was about third-place we were going to have a good car. I went after it and it worked out. We got the lead and never looked back. We are excited. These guys worked their butts off to get this. It should happen a couple more times this year, I think."

Haase beat some of the best Super Late Model competition in the South on the tight confines of the 1/4-mile Wake County Speedway. The race was exceptionally clean with great competition throughout the field. Three leaders, Alex Fleming, Clay Jones and Alex Haase, swapped the lead four times. Only three cautions slowed the 150-lap event.

"It is a small place, buy real racey," said Haase, who is also a Rookie of the Year contender in PASS South. "It is a real unique track. I hope we come back here. It put on a good show for the fans."

"I want them to come back here," said Williams, who set fast-time during qualifying. "Honestly, no one really tore anything up bad tonight. I thought it was a good show, so hopefully we will come back next year."

Early race leader Alex Fleming faded with mechanical troubles and still wound up with a 10th-place finish. Clay Jones, who also led a handful of laps, scored his first top-five finish of the PASS South season.

Haase had something else in common with the rash of first-time winners in PASS, a successful mentor in the racing business. For Stroupe, it is SPEED Channel's Bob Dillner; for Sanborn, it's Ben Rowe; and for DJ Shaw, his father is former Busch North champion Dale Shaw. For Haase, he has NASCAR Sprint Cup Series point leader Kyle Busch to lean on.

"I just talked to Kyle, and he was pumped," said Haase, who started sixth in the field. "He is a racer, and he knows what it takes. I felt we had a winning car at Motor Mile, but something happened there. He was stoked about the win."

For Kyle, witnesses say he was smiling from ear-to-ear even before his win Sunday in the Sprint Cup race at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA. It was his first victory with his Super Late Model development team.

"I won a race last year with my team, but this was my first win as a team owner," stated Busch, who will compete in the PASS North event this Saturday at All-Star Speedway in Epping, NH, during the Cup weekend at the "Magic Mile." "To have Alex come out from the West Coast and compete here on the East Coast is cool. He's been working 12-14 hours a day with the rest of the guys. It's tough on all of them, but it finally paid off. It means a lot to me and him and the family, so hopefully this continues on and we can get some more wins."

Busch, as Haase said, is a racer. He drives many different racecars throughout the year, but Super Late Models are among his favorites. His brother, Kurt, also a NASCAR winner, was a former NASCAR Southwest Tour champion, and Kyle compares the PASS series to the good old days of NASCAR�s elite series.

"With no more Southwest Tour or Southeast Tour, those drivers needed something else. PASS is now a big enough Late Model Touring Series that it has sort of taken over that role in the Southeast," explained Busch. "For me, it's a good series to be involved in. There are some good rules, but there are not too many rules. We feel like it is a good area for us to be in and for Alex to get some experience. I know he enjoys it a lot, and I've always had fun running with PASS too."

The next stop for PASS South will be at Greenville-Pickens Speedway in Greenville, SC, on Thursday, July 3rd. This will be the third-annual running of the Firecracker 150, but the first time it is held at the legendary South Carolina racetrack.

Hickory NC (Saturday March 22, 2008) Maine speedster Corey Williams drove his Prevost-Stuff.com Chevrolet to a hard fought victory in Saturday's PASS South Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory (NC) Motor Speedway. Williams battled 2007 PASS South champ Ryan Lawler for thirty laps in the closing stages of the 150 lap event, taking the lead for good on lap 137. Lawler settled for second, with teenagers John Stancill and Zach Stroupe third and fourth. Heath Hindman completed the top five.

Blue skies, a warm breeze and a pit area full of race cars - it's the recipe for a perfect kick off to any race season, and the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South racers and fans that made the trip to Hickory Motor Speedway Saturday were greeted by all three. Forty four of the fastest Super Late Models in the country were on hand to try and crack the field of thirty.

Forty cars made the call for PASS South qualifying and Signal Mountain Tennessee's Heath Hindman set quick time with a lap of 14.904 seconds, .036 seconds quicker than Jimmy Doyle. Ben Rowe led the PASS North contingent with a 14.944 followed by Floridian Jeff Choquette at 14.970 and Corey Williams with a lap of 14.971. The remaining fifteen drivers locked in through time trials (in order) were: Cassius Clark, Zach Stroupe, Derek Ramstrom, Grant Enfinger, Ryan Lawler, Mitch Cobb, Tom McCann Jr., Mark Gibson, Shaun Turple, Perry Brown, Mike Rowe, Brad McCaskill, Justin Wakefield, John Batten and Butch Miller. Just three tenths of a second separated the top twenty.

Three fifteen lap consolation rounds qualified six more cars; Morrill Maine's Travis Benjamin, Nova Scotian Dean Clattenburg and Raleigh North Carolina's Alex Fleming earned the consi wins. Ryan Sieg, John Fleming and John Stancill were runner-ups. A 20 lap last chance filled the final two qualifying spots and Alex Haase led from green to checker to put the Kyle Busch Foundation Toyota in the starting field; Easley South Carolina's Clete Caywood was the runner-up. Brandon Johnson and Tim Pinion received provisional starting spots.

The top ten time trialers redrew for their starting positions, and Jeff Choquette had the touch, pulling the number one spot .Zach Stroupe drew the outside pole and fast timer Hindman drew third. Corey Williams, Cassius Clark, Jimmy Doyle, Ben Rowe, Derek Ramstrom, Ryan Lawler and Grant Enfinger lined up in positions four through ten.

At the green Choquette jumped out to the lead with Hindman second, Williams third, Clark fourth and Jimmy Doyle fifth. The front of the field ran single file for the first twenty laps until Doyle spun to bring out the first caution. Choquette didn't get going on the restart, allowing Hindman and Clark to get by. It took Choquette just seven laps to work his way back to the point, and he kept the number one spot through several early cautions, despite Hindman's best efforts to wrestle the away the lead.

On lap 75 Choquette was still out front with Hindman, Rowe, Zach Stroupe and Corey Williams the top five. The front pack was running nose to tail, working the lapped traffic on lap 103 and the lappers got together with the leaders, jumbling the front of the field and handing the lead to 2007 PASS South champ Ryan Lawler and sending Choquette and Ben Rowe to the pits. When the smoked cleared it was Lawler followed by Williams, a charging Travis Benjamin, Mike Rowe and John Stancill. Benjamin's run to the front was sidetracked a short while later after contact with Mike Rowe; Dean Clattenburg was a victim of the melee and had to retire for the night.

The last third of the race was a battle royal with Williams now in command and Lawler hungry to get back the point Lawler got his way on lap 117, but 20 laps later Williams took the lead for good and drove off into the sunset to claim the Easter Bunny 150, the first ever PASS National Champion's event, and a guaranteed starting spot in the $30,000-to-win PASS North DNK 250 at Wiscasset Raceway. Lawler, Stancill, Stroupe and Hindman rounded out the top five. Cassius Clark, John Fleming, Travis Benjamin, Mike Rowe and Sean Turple finished in positions six through ten.

The PASS South tour heads to Dillon South Carolina on Saturday April 5th for their first visit to Dillon Motor Speedway for the South Carolina Clash 125.

After much thought and discussion, PASS President Tom Mayberry announced today that starting in 2008 there will be a new qualifying procedure for all PASS South Super Late Model events. This announcement will not effect the PASS North Super Late Models or any other PASS-sanctioned event.

"In reviewing our qualifying procedures, we felt this decision to amend the rules was best in order to sustain the PASS South's continued rise and popularity, not only with the drivers, but with the fans as well," said PASS President Tom Mayberry.

Starting in 2008, PASS South Super Late Model teams will no longer have to concern themselves with preparing for both qualifying and heat races if they qualify in the top 20. If the qualifying time is fast enough, teams are locked into the feature and can prepare for the main event. However, drivers that qualify in the top 10 will redraw for their starting positions in the main event. Drivers in positions 11 though 20 will line up in the positions that they qualified. Drivers that qualify outside of the top 20 will be required to race in a last chance race to fill out the remainder of the field. There will be two provisional starters to round out the field based on the highest licensed driver in PASS South Series points. Those drivers have to race in the last chance race, though, and complete the given distance in order to receive a provisional.

"We anticipate that our competitors will like the changes we have made," continued Mayberry. "But, despite the changes we have made to our qualifying procedures, nothing will change in our race procedure. We will continue with the famous double-file restarts and we will continue to only count green flag laps. It's what the fans have grown to love about the PASS South Series."

2008 PASS South Super Late Model Qualifying Format
- The top 20 teams on speed through time trials will be locked in to the feature event.
- The fastest 10 teams will redraw following time trials for their starting positions in
       the feature event.
- Time trial positions 11 through 20 will start straight up in those respective
       qualified positions for the feature event.
- The remaining feature event positions will be determined through a last chance
       qualifying event for all competitors that fail to qualify through time trials.
- Teams that qualify through the last chance race will be permitted to purchase two
       new tires for the feature event. In the event a team elects to purchase the allowed two tires, that team is required to start the feature event on the four tires they intend to complete the entire event on unless otherwise posted.
 - Two PASS South Series provisionals are awarded to the two highest registered point
teams that fail to qualify for the event through time trials or the last chance race.

Teams are required to compete in the last chance race and complete the given distance to be eligible for a provisional starting position.
