Tickets from Aug. 2 event to be honored this weekend; Twin Night scheduled Aug. 30 for top three divisions

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — The Super Late Models of the Pro All Star Series (PASS) will make their second appearance of the 2014 campaign at America’s Hometown Track on Saturday, Aug. 16.

The PASS Super Late Model 150 racing program will get cranked up at 7 p.m. on the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval. The night of racing action will also feature twin 75-lap battles for the competitors in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division and a 25-lap shootout for the touring Legends Series.

Tickets purchased for the Aug. 2 event that was rained out at America’s Hometown Track will be honored for Saturday’s running of the PASS Super Late Model 150 event.

Heading into racing action this weekend, Tyler Church is the leader in the chase for the PASS Super Late Model Series South Division championship. Church was one victory and has opened a 28-point edge over second-place Cole Timm, who also has one victory this season.

Jared Irvan is third in the standings and is followed in the top five by Tyler Dippel and Trevor Noles. Tate Fogleman is currently sixth in the title standings.

When the PASS Super Late Models invaded America’s Hometown Track in June for their first appearance of the campaign, Timm wrestled the lead from veteran Preston Peltier with one lap remaining and held on to secure the victory.

Noles finished third in the first appearance of the season, while Harrison Burton, the son of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jeff Burton, placed fourth. Jared Fryar was fifth and Fogleman finished in the sixth position.

Peyton Sellers, a former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion and a five-time winner this season at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval, sits atop the point standings in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division standings.

Austin Thaxton is second in the title chase and is only three points ahead of third-place Matt Bowling, who is a former track champion at America’s Hometown Track.

Josh Oakley is fourth in the standings and is only four points ahead of Bruce Anderson.

Registration and pit gates will open on Saturday at noon. Practice for all divisions will be held from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.

Grandstand gates will open at 4:30 p.m. and qualifying time trials will crank up at 4:45 p.m. A Fan Appreciation session will be held prior to racing action from 5:45 p.m. until 6:45 p.m.

Advance tickets for the PASS Super Late Model 150 racing program are on sale and priced at $10 each. Advance tickets can be purchased through 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 15.

Adult general admission tickets will be priced at $15 on race day. Children, ages six and under, will be admitted free with a paid adult.

Speedway officials announced Tuesday that the Aug. 30 event at South Boston would be a “Twin Night” for the track’s top three divisions.
