PASS South Boston Event Becomes Qualifying Race


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Officials with the Pro All Stars Series announced Thursday that the PASS South super late model event scheduled for Aug. 11 at Virginia’s South Boston Speedway will now be the final Roads To Oxford & Richmond qualifier of the year.

Several teams have expressed interest in having the choice to get a guaranteed starting spot for the 45th annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway on Aug. 26 or the inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway in October.

The 150-lap event at South Boston Speedway is the only date left available to give teams the option to choose between the Oxford 250 or the Commonwealth Classic at Richmond.  The top five finishers at South Boston Speedway on Aug. 11 will be locked into the Oxford 250 or at Richmond.

The 45th Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway will be on Sunday, August 26, giving racers the chance to win up to $50,000.  The inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway will be on Saturday, Oct. 20 and will pay $10,000 to the super late model winner.  Tour-type modifieds, late model stocks, limited late models and street stocks will also be in action as part of the most anticipated new event in short track racing.

As for the fate of the 12th annual Orange Blossom Special at Orange County Speedway that was postponed last weekend due to the possibility of severe weather, a decision on a new date is still pending.
