Although the Pro All Stars Series season is not quite halfway complete, drivers and series officials are already looking towards one of the biggest and newest events of the year, the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 at Hickory Motor Speedway in November.
In advance of the MegaMeltdown, PASS and Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, N.C., announced that two events coming up in the month of July will serve as qualifiers for the MegaMeltdown.
As part of the agreement, the winner of the upcoming pro late model race at Southern National Motorsports Park on Saturday, July 8 will be awarded a guaranteed starting spot in the prestigious race.
Then, the following weekend on Saturday, July 15, the top three finishers of the 150-lap PASS South super late model event there will also receive guaranteed starting spots in the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300.
The only stipulation is that teams receiving these guaranteed spots must have their entries and entry fees submitted by Aug. 1.
Drivers from the Southern National events will join the top-two finishers of the Neal Newberry 125 at Wenatchee Valley Super Oval in Washington state on Sept. 23 as guaranteed starters during the Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300.
“PASS has had a long history at Southern National dating back to the series inaugural season in 2006,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry. “Mike [Diaz] and the folks at Southern National have been great supporters of PASS and the MegaMeltdown at Hickory. We expect this race to attract a lot of cars and these guaranteed spots at Southern National could be pivotal to a driver making the MegaMeltdown or not.”
The Mason-Dixon MegaMeltdown 300 will be held Nov. 18 at Hickory Motor Speedway, paying $15,000 to the winner and $1,000 to start.
With lap leader bonus money added in, the winner could take home more than $20,000.
