THREE WINNERS ALREADY IN THE PAS PURSUIT CHAMPIONSIP AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!
(Perris, CA, May 14, 2014)
Round #2 of the PASSCAR Championship Stock Car Series will hit Perris Auto Speedway this Saturday night, May 17th. Four different PASSCAR classes - LoanMart Street Stocks, Modifieds, Super Stocks and American Factory Stocks - will be in action along with the CDCRA Dwarf Cars. Spectator gates for the night of racing and family fun will open at 5:00 PM and the first race will be at 6:30.

Saturday’s event will be the second of eight in the 2014 PASSCAR Series and the new PAS Pursuit Championship. The winners of the first seven main events in each class will comprise the “Super 7.” They will be able to vie for their class title on November 15th on Champions Night. In the event there are multiple winners in a class in the first seven nights, the track will then rely on the top point drivers (who have not won a main event) to comprise the remaining spots in the “Super 7.”

After one night of action Tustin’s Alan Updyke, the four time track champ and all-time leader in Modified main event wins at The PAS, has locked up one of the seven spots in the Modified division. Dennis Wooldridge of Riverside, the defending Super Stock champ and Hemet’s Adam Collins in the Factory Stocks are all locked in the championship chase after wins in the season openers.

While those classes all have one member of the “Super 7” already locked in, nobody is locked in, in the Street Stocks. Rules specify that to be eligible drivers had to be members of PASSCAR to secure a birth. Norco’s Johnny Malcolm won the first Street Stock main, but he was not a PASSCAR member at the time of his win. Therefore, at least the top driver in points who has not won a main event after the seven initial races will get into the “Super 7” and have a chance to win the 2014 Street Stock championship.

“It is all about running hard this year,” promoter Don Kazarian said. “You have to race hard to get a win to get into the Pursuit and you have to race hard to get as many points as possible in case you do not win. Cruising around in third or fourth to win the championship is not an option this year. The fans are going to benefit as we are expecting the best ever and hardest PASSCAR racing season of all-time. And, it should be hard racing up until the final checkered flag of the final night as the champion in each series will earn a $1,000.00 bonus”

If opening night was any indication, it is going to be a sensational season for the PASSCAR Series. A near record number of Modifieds showed up for the season opener along with a large field of LoanMart Street Stocks. Rule changes to mirror the IMCA rules for the Modifieds led to the increased size of the field and a $1,000.00 paycheck to winner Updyke.

“We hope to see as many or more Modifieds and Street Stocks at every race this year,” Kazarian articulated. They put on a great show last time. We expect some big things from the Super Stocks and Factory Stocks this year as well. The Super Stock class should be bigger than it has been in several years. They are very fast race cars and put on a crowd pleasing show.”

In addition to the four divisions of PASSCAR, the popular CDCRA Dwarf Cars will be back for their second appearance of the 2014 season this Saturday. Scaled down versions of mostly vintage racing coupes, Dwarf Cars have been a part of The PAS racing program since the track first opened in 1996. The most well-known Dwarf Car graduate to ever appear at The PAS is current NASCAR Sprint Cup star Kyle Busch who was at the track for the Dwarf Car Nationals in the early 2000’s.

Tickets for Saturday’s stock car spectacular are $15.00 for adults. Active military members with proper id, students 13-18 with their school id and kids 6-12 get in for just $5.00. Children 5 and under are admitted free.
