Stallings to make PASS Super Late Model Series debut Saturday night at SoBo
NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division will also be in action in pair of 75-lap events

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — When the Super Late Models of the PASS All Star Series (PASS) make their second appearance of the season Saturday night at South Boston Speedway, Danville, Va. driver Blake Stallings will be making his debut in the touring series.

The action-packed night of racing scheduled as part of the PASS Super Late Model 150 racing program will get underway at 7 p.m. In addition to the 150-lap PASS Super Late Model battle Saturday night, race fans will also be treated to twin 75-lap battles for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division and a 25-lap shootout for the touring Legends Series.

Race fans who purchased tickets for the Aug. 2 event that was rained out at America’s Hometown Track can use those tickets for admission to Saturday’s PASS Super Late Model 150 racing program.

Stallings, 19, has enjoyed success at America’s Hometown Track in the past in both the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division and in the Limited Sportsman Division. In Limited Sportsman Division action at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval, Stallings has tallied five career triumphs.

Saturday night, he hopes to use that earlier success to contend for a solid finish in the PASS Series.

“I’m a driver, I always want to win,” Stallings said, adding that he had practiced the car he is renting from Chad Kendrick, Wednesday at Ace Speedway.

“The car (sponsored by Stallings Collision Center and Mincey’s Graphics) drove really well,” Stallings said. “I talked to a few guys about my times and it seems like they were pretty competitive.

“South Boston is a track that can be tough,” Stallings said. “It’s my home track and I would like to have a good run there.”

Harrison Burton, the son of South Boston NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran Jeff Burton, will also be in the field for Saturday night’s racing action.

Burton led the most laps in the June appearance by the PASS Series at South Boston Speedway and wound up finishing in fourth place in that event.

Tyler Church is the current points leader in the PASS Super Late Model Series South Division. Church has tallied one win this season and he owns a 28-point lead over Cole Timm in the title chase.

Timm notched his lone PASS Series victory of the season at South Boston Speedway in June when he swiped the lead away from Preston Peltier with one lap remaining to pull out the triumph. Trevor Noles finished third, just ahead of Harrison Burton and fifth-place running Jared Fryar.

On the strength of five victories thus far this season, Peyton Sellers, a former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion, owns the lead in the chase for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division championship this season at America’s Hometown Track.

While Sellers has opened a sizable lead at the top of the standings, there are some tight battles taking place behind him. Austin Thaxton is second in standings, but is only three points ahead former track champion Matt Bowling in the third-place spot.

In the battle for fourth place, Josh Oakley currently owns the position; however, he 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.
