CHARLOTTE, NC :: Follow the South Carolina stretch which featured an exciting finish at Greenville-Pickens Speedway and wild race at Dillon Motor Speedway, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) heads to Orange County in a couple weeks.  We take a look at the two events with our Power Rankings.

10. Tyler Dippel

Fresh new face on the PASS South scene in 2014, Dippel surprised everyone by qualifying fifth at the Greenville season opener, and finished that up with a solid 10th place.  Dippel then went on to earn fast time at Dillon the following week, but after starting 10th because of the redraw he was caught up in the big multicar accident on lap 5 and struggled with his car’s handling the remainder of the race.  Dippel has speed in that car and the driver has the talent to find the winner’s circle.

9. Jody Measamer

Although Measamer went end over end down the Dillon Motor Speedway front stretch last time out, he has been one of the top 5 fastest cars both weeks.  Measamer is planning on competing for the championship in 2014, and if the bad luck stays away he will be one of the three guys to beat for the title.  Look for Measamer to right the ship in the next event at Orange County Speedway.

8. Trevor Noles

The 2013 PASS Pro Late Model Champion has made the move to the Super Late Models full-time in 2014 and has not lost a step.  Noles has the speed to qualify and run up front as he has proven that so far this year.  Experience, like Irvan and Timm are what Noles will need to overcome to put the complete package together and get a race win over the veterans of the series and compete for the championship.

7. Jared Irvan

The son of NASCAR star Ernie Irvan has made the jump to a full season of PASS Super Late Model racing in 2014.  Irvan has shown good pace in both races so far, and as one of only four drivers with top ten’s in both races, Irvan is going to be in victory lane soon and a dark horse contender for the championship.

6. Tyler Church

Since collecting his first career PASS win at Hickory Motor Speedway last fall, Church has been a rocket ship on the track.  He also won the season finale at Southern National and with a seventh and a third place finish in 2014, Church has to be the early favorite for the championship.  Look for multiple wins this season from Church.

5. Preston Peltier

The PASS South career wins leader struggled in Greenville, but looked poised for a rebound performance last time out in Dillon.  Peltier was quickest in practice, and just missed quick time in qualifying.  Peltier ended up redrawing ninth and fought through to a fourth place finish.  He will be a threat to win in Orange County Speedway.

4. Garrett Campbell

UARA’s loss is the PASS’s gain with the addition of Garrett Campbell to the field this season.  Campbell has been quick in both events, and led the majority of the Greenville race before burning his tires off.  Campbell was quick again at Dillon, but got collected in one of the two early multi-car incidents ending his race early.

3. Randy Gentry

Gentry is running a part-time schedule this year and was a race winning contender in his first start at Greenville.  Gentry ran in the top 3 most of the race, before getting outrun by tire strategy due to a late caution and finished third.  Gentry should be making his second start at the next event at Orange County Speedway on April 5th.

2. Cole Timm

Quietly making a name for himself in his sophomore season in a Super Late Model, Timm has a solid start to the 2014 season with two top-ten finishes, and nearly pulled off his first win at the last event in Dillon.  It is only a matter of time until Timm puts a complete race together and earns that first win.

1. Daniel Hemric

Has won both of the races in 2014 with two different teams, Woodman Racing and Carswell Motorsports, by using smart tire strategy and a little racing luck.  Although Hemric will not be running the full-season, he has shown to be the driver to beat anytime he is in the field.
