For immediate release: 11/26/02






PORTLAND ME - Pro All Stars Series President Tom Mayberry today announced that the Pro All Stars Series will sanction the Big Dawg Challenge, a 400 lap Pro Stock race event to be held at Wiscasset Raceway in Wiscasset Maine on Saturday and Sunday October 11 and 12, 2003. The Big Dawg Challenge will post awards in excess of $195,000.00 with a possible $100,000.00 to the race winner.

According to Mayberry, “ I’m very excited to be able to announce this record breaking event for Pro Stock racers. I’ve always considered these race teams to be the backbone of our sport, here in the Northeast and in many other parts of the country as well. Over 150 pro stock teams attempted to qualify for a PASS sanctioned event in 2002, and the Big Dawg Challenge is our way of saying thank you to the grass roots racers that have supported the PASS during our first two seasons. Our goal is to build an annual event that will bring Pro Stock teams from all over the country together for bragging rights and a remarkable payday. The winner of this event will certainly be considered Pro Stock racing’s “Big Dawg” for 2003!”

The Big Dawg Challenge will feature a two-day format with time trials, qualifying races and a “C” main on Saturday. Sunday’s schedule includes a “B” main and the 400-lap “Big Dawg Challenge”.
