ASA Late Model Series Acquires the Southern All Star Series and Pro-Late Model Series
The ASA Late Model Series presented by GM Performance Parts has acquired the Southern All Stars Series and the Southern All Star Pro-Late Model Series effective September 1st 2005. The ASA Late Model Series at this time would like to announce that we will be expanding our market to the South and North regions as a major Short Track Sanctioning Body in the United States.
The series will be running an ASA Late Model northern and southern division as well as a National Touring series throughout the country, the ASA Late Model Challenge Series.
The North and South Divisions will run on a bias ply tire and the Challenge Series will remain on a Radial Tire.
The rapid growth of this series is phenomenal. In 2003 for the inaugural event of the USPRO Racing series which is now know as ASALMS had 13 cars show to compete. The series although small, started the wheels in motion for a change that would sweep the short track-racing world throughout the Midwest and beyond. The Crate Motor, Template Body package with cost limitations on parts was appealing to not only drivers, but to race tracks throughout the country. Late in 2003, USPRO owners were approached by the now defunct American Speed Association to form a partnership and launch a series that would forever change the history of short track racing; ASALMS.
The 2004 season had the ASALMS teams and series sweep through the Midwest with gusto. Despite all the troubles with the now defunct American Speed Association, the ASALMS continued to grow and prosper. In the final days of the American Speed Association, a deal was made to return the ASALMS back to the original owner of the USPRO series who helped kick-start this awesome trend in racing; Ron Varney.
Today we would like to celebrate the continued growth of a company that has been formed and molded by racers and promoters together. The key to the success has always been working together to breathe new life into short track racing.
Each series rules packages will remain pretty much the same as they currently are throughout the 2006 season. The series will be announcing details on purse, schedule and awards at a later date.
