Adopt ABC Bodies For 2005
(November 8, 2004 - Naples, ME) Tom Mayberry of the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) announced
that PASS has committed to the A-B-C body for the 2005 season.
The A-B-C body program is an industry standard for the design, construction, and technical
inspection of the bodies for offset template pro-stock and late model racecars throughout
America. The leading body manufacturers have agreed to produce aerodynamically identical
based upon agreed upon standardized specifications. For PASS, the objective is to keep the
uniform, control costs for everyone, and bring our series into line with other pro-stock
late model series around the country that are already using the A-B-C body.
All PASS competitors running for 2005 season points and contingency awards must use a Five
ARP, or other A-B-C body that conform to the A-B-C and PASS measurements and templates.
All competitors will have the first half of the season to "use up" their
existing bodies, and this rule will go into effect at the halfway point in the season.
Some of the competitors among the more than 120 racers who raced with PASS in 2004 run a
limited schedule and will not be running for points in 2005. They will not be required to
run the A-B-C body if they are not running for points.
The following bodies are approved for competition in 2005. A-B-C: Monte Carlo, Grand Prix,
and Intrepid. Other bodies allowed but not eligible for season points are as follows:
Chevrolet - Camaro, Lumina, Monte Carlo; Buick - Regal; Oldsmobile - Cutlass; Pontiac -
Firebird, Grand Prix; Ford - Thunderbird, Taurus; and Dodge - Intrepid.
Paul Johnson, the PASS Technical Director, will be scheduling rules information meetings
dates and locations to be announced shortly. Keep checking this web site for further
