President Tom Mayberry has announced that the touring super late model series has reached an agreement designating Crane Cams Ignition as the official ignition of PASS.
“We are excited to welcome Crane Cams Ignition to our North and South super late model series for 2011,” said Mayberry in making the announcement. “The company is a well known and trusted name in motorsports and we are proud to represent them in the short track community. We encourage our competitors to support this program in every way possible.”
The official designation does not mean that race teams will be required to use Crane Cams Ignition components. However, there will be substantial awards in all thirty one 2011 PASS North and South events that will give super late model racers the opportunity to redeem certificates for products throughout the entire Crane Cams line in addition to Crane Cams Ignition.
Based in Daytona Beach Florida, Crane Cams was founded in 1953 by Harvey Crane Jr. Over the years Crane brought new and innovative technology to the fore front, patenting roller rocker technology, introducing the Gold Race aluminum rocker arms that have become a standard of the industry and pioneering the use of computers to design camshaft profiles.
The 90's saw Crane Cams expand into the ignition field and introduce new ground breaking technology. In 1995 Crane introduced the industry's first digital ignition , followed by the the first digital “drop in” points replacement,the first adjustable distributor with 27 advance curves and the industry's first distributor to employ fiber optics to send a trigger signal..
PASS South will get it's season underway on Saturday March 12th at Andersen (SC) Speedway, while PASS North gets the green at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough Maine on Saturday April 30.
