Dominant Dilbeck Takes
1st Career PASS South Win
At Hickory Motor Speedway
HICKORY, NC (June 18) - Chris Dilbeck led over 120 laps in a dominating performance to win Saturday night's Over The Mountain 150 for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Models at Hickory Motor Speedway. The victory marks the first career PASS South Super Late Model win for the Georgia native.

"This is just unbelievable to win at a place like Hickory," said an emotional Dilbeck afterwards. "We're just a part-time team and this is just amazing to do this against this type of competition. Me and two other guys work on this car and it was just perfect all night long. I just really can't believe this."

Defending PASS South champion, Tate Fogleman, set the standard in qualifying, bettering the competition with a lap of 87.447 miles per hour. After the top 10 qualifiers redraw, Fogleman would slot in to the sixth starting position, while Dilbeck and Jared Irvan would move up to the front row to lead the field to green.

On a very pleasant night for the fans to enjoy some short track racing, Irvan would take the lead into turn one, before Dilbeck would power by on lap nine. The first caution of the night would fall just one lap later when Jimmy Doyle would go for a spin in turn four.

Back under green, Dilbeck continued to lead, while Matt Craig was making his way up from the ninth starting position and into the top five by lap 14. The caution would fly again for a solo spin by Tanner Berryhill in turn four on lap 19.

Dilbeck led on the restart, but would be overtaken for the top spot by Florida veteran, Jeff Scofield, two laps later. Scofield's turn up front would be short lived, though, as Dilbeck would go back to the front on lap 28.

Closing in on the one-third mark of the race, Trey Jarrell would be the man on the move, hooking his Kaytech, Inc. Ford up on the outside as he passed Dalton Sargeant for third on lap 41. Jarrell continued to work the high side moving past Scofield for second just ten laps later. On lap 62, Kayley Stukas would spin on the backstretch to bring out the third caution of the night. The caution would wave again just past halfway when Wes Burton spun exiting turn two on lap 85. Several drivers would take this opportunity to pit to work on the handling of their cars including Jody Measamer, Irvan, Sarah Cornett-Ching, Berryhill, and Roger Lee Newton.

On the restart, Jarrell would challenge Dilbeck, inching out ahead at times, only to have Dilbeck move back by and reassume command of the race. After starting 11th, Brandon Setzer made his way into the top five, passing Scofield on lap 87. Dilbeck would stretch his advantage until the caution waved with 31 laps to go when second place runner Jarrell made contact with the lapped machine of Berryhill, foiling Jarrell's strategy of saving tires.

Dilbeck continued to lead, but with Jarrell's misstep, Craig and Sargeant moved by to try and apply pressure to the leader. However, Dilbeck's PFC Brakes/Central Georgia ENT Chevrolet would prove to be too strong as he would take the win over Craig, Sargeant, Jarrell, and Setzer. Rounding out the top 10 were Scofield, Newton, Tanner Gray, Tyler Ankrum, and Will Martin. Craig's runner-up finish, paired with a 16th place finish by Kodie Conner, have Craig unofficially taking the points lead by four points.

PASS Carolina Doubleheader Moves
To Hickory On Saturday Night
CHARLOTTE, NC (June 16) - The best racers in the south will be busy this weekend as the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Models will compete on back-to-back nights for the first time in series history this weekend. The PASS Carolina Doubleheader will see the South's original Super Late Model tour compete for 125 laps on Friday night at Anderson Motor Speedway in South Carolina before moving across the border on Saturday night to Hickory Motor Speedway for the 10th Running of the Over The Mountain 150.

Hickory has a long and storied history, not just for stock car racing in general, but for PASS South as well. PASS set the standard for Super Late Model racing in the region when PASS South was launched at Hickory in 2006 with the inaugural running of the Easter Bunny 150. Since then, Hickory Motor Speedway has hosted the PASS South Super Late Models nearly 30 times, the most of any track on the schedule.

One driver hoping to score his first win in one of this weekend's doubleheader events is Trey Jarrell. The young driver from Martinsville, VA has been impressive in a limited number of starts with PASS, but not any more than he was this past March at Hickory in the Easter Bunny 150. Jarrell traded the lead back-and-forth with eventual winner, Ben Rowe, showing that he has what it takes to win on one of short track racing's biggest stages. Jarrell and the Mark Reedy racing team head into the weekend brimming with confidence that they can get their first PASS South win.

"As a driver I have always liked Hickory going back to my days racing Legends cars," says Jarrell, who will pilot the Kaytech Inc. Ford this weekend. "My crew worked extremely hard at the Easter Bunny 150 to put a fast car on the track for me. To run inside the top five and lead a couple laps like we did on seven and later six-cylinders was quite an accomplishment. Now, going back with a fresh motor and the knowledge we gained at the Easter Bunny 150, we feel like we have as good a shot at racing for the win as anybody. Last time we raced at Hickory they had just laid sealer down on the cracks and it really gave the track a lot of grip. I've heard since the Easter Bunny the sealer has worn off and the times have slowed back down. I expect we'll be racing on the same slick Hickory track we're all accustomed to this Saturday."

But, it's not just at Hickory that Jarrell has excelled. Last year, strong runs at South Boston Speedway and Caraway Speedway were foiled by late-race crashes. In four starts this year, Jarrell has three top 10 finishes, with a best finish of sixth coming at Caraway in April. Lessons learned last year have paid dividends for Jarrell so far in 2016.

"We've had 3 top 10s in-a-row now with the Kaytech-Reedy Racing Ford at Hickory, Caraway, and Concord," said Jarrell. "I'm pleased with our consistency, but I honestly think each of those top 10 finishes should be top five finishes. We finished eighth at Hickory on six-cylinders, sixth at Caraway the first time we ran a crate motor, and seventh the other week at Concord with fuel pickup problems down the straights. As long as we keep showing up with fast racecars, we are going to be knocking on the door of stringing together top five runs and wins."

Jarrell will be one of several drivers planning on double duty this weekend at Anderson and Hickory, including, PASS South points leaders, Kodie Conner and Matt Craig, as well as Tyler and Jeff Scofield, Dalton Sargeant, Wes Burton, defending series champion, Tate Fogleman, Jimmy Doyle, and, track record holder, Jody Measamer. In addition, Georgia's Chris Dilbeck has filed an entry for Hickory as well as Tanner Gray and Jeff Batten.

All the action gets under way on Saturday at Hickory Motor Speedway with practice beginning at 2:30 PM, followed by qualifying at 5 PM, then the Pit Party, and main events going green at 7 PM for the PASS South Super Late Models, Mid-Atlantic Limited Late Models, and USAC Eastern Midgets.
