Dillon, S.C. (March 11, 2015): Dillon Motor Speedway hosted the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Carolina Clash 125, as well as the Legends and local Chargers on Saturday, March 7.

Tyler Church captured an emotional victory in the 125-lap PASS South Super Late Model race. In an underfunded effort, Church had to earn a strong finish to continue his racing efforts in the series this season. Trevor Noles finished second, followed by Zane Smith, Joey Doiron and Jody Measamer. Locals, Ryan Hall and Hal Goodson also competed in the race. Hall finished seventh, and Goodson crossed the finish line in the ninth position.

After starting from the rear due to an engine change, Kodie Conner battled through the field to take the checkered flag in the PASS Pro Late Model feature. Chandler Smith finished second. Wesley Noles finished third, and Ryan Krachun finished fourth. Logan Jones rounded out the top-five.

Sean Gardner was announced the winner of the Charger feature after William Haynie and Jeff Melton got together in the final corner on the final lap. Ben Watford finished second. Jeff Melton crossed the line in third, and Jason Calhoun finished fourth. William Haynie finished fifth.

Chase Purdy took the checkered flag to claim the victory in the Legends feature on Saturday night. Ryan Millington was the runner-up, followed by Devin O’Connell, Dillon Spain and Will Bristle.

Dillon Motor Speedway’s next event will be the Raceway Automotive Parts 200 (March BASH) on March 20-21. The Late Models will be competing, as well as the Street Stocks and Four Cylinder Mayhems. Just like in the January BASH, Dillon Motor Speedway is expecting a large number of competitors for the March BASH. The event will be the second points event for the Street Stocks.

Gates open at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 21, and practice will begin at 12 p.m. The green flag is set to fly at 5 p.m.
