NAPLES, Maine – Pro All Stars Series officials have revealed the format for the upcoming PASS National Super Late Model event scheduled for Nov. 15-16 at the Lanier Raceplex.
The Lanier National 200 will be 200 laps and pay $6,000 to the winner and $1,000 to start. The starting grid will be set by heat races in which their lineups will be determined by using practice speeds from the last practice.
For the first time, pre-race tech will be set by the order that entries are received, giving teams longer to prepare for practice and the race. The first entrants for the Lanier National 200 are Tate Fogleman, Bryan Kruczek, Gabe Brown and J.P. Josiasse.
In addition, home state favorite Bubba Pollard has confirmed that he has had several drivers inquire with him about racing at Lanier in November.
PASS previously raced at Lanier in 2006 and 2007. Home town favorite Jason Hogan scored his only win in the series at the inaugural event at Lanier, while Maine’s Corey Williams took the win the following year.
Hogan says there is a need for asphalt racing in Georgia and he is glad to see racing return to Lanier in the Atlanta-metro area.
“I do think it is a great deal and should have a really good turnout,” said Hogan, who currently owns and operates a successful printing business in the area. “Not sure how the fan base will be since racing has been gone from here for so long, but these folks really do miss that track. I think the car count will be awesome.”
Hogan said he is considering returning to the driver’s seat to compete at Lanier, but the decision hasn’t been made yet.
“Well, me and Richie Wauters have talked about running at Lanier,” says Hogan. “But, I also have a new baby on the way and the wife is not a 100 percent sold on it as of yet.”
