“I’m really pumped up to have this opportunity to race with Dicky [Woodman] in 2013 and I think we can go out there and be competitive right off the bat at Dillon,” said Powell. “Last year was my first year being involved with PASS and I enjoyed it a lot. Tom Mayberry does a great job with the series and we’re excited to race for wins with Dicky and challenge again for the PASS South championship with New Day Motorsports and Brandon Ward.”
Following the South Carolina Clash at Dillon, Powell will pilot the potent Woodman Racing machine in six more PASS South events including all three races at South Boston Speedway (May 11, June 8, August 17), both races at Caraway (NC) Speedway (May 24, November 9) and in the Over The Mountain 150 at Hickory (NC) Motor Speedway on September 21.
Powell began his racing career at the young age of 10 winning State and National Championships with the World Karting Association. He moved to the powerful dirt Super Late Models in 1984, winning track championships at Beckley Motor Speedway and Princeton Motor Speedway in his home state of West Virginia. After moving to North Carolina, Powell switched to asphalt in 2000 racing in the Late Model Stock division at Friendship Moto r Speedway. In 2002, Powell progressed to the ground pounders of racing, the Open Wheel Modifieds. He raced for a number of years in the Southern Modified Tour and has raced and won at the legendary Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC.
“Krazy” Kevin Powell has become well known to race fans around the country in recent years for his extreme promotions and advertisements for Kevin Powell Motorsports, kpmoto.com, and Foothill Ford. And, that is how his involvement with PASS first began. With his sponsorship of New Day Motorsports and driver Brandon Ward in 2010, the #62 has been a perennial front runner on the PASS South tour. In 2012, the team scored wins at Wake County (NC) Speedway and Anderson (SC) Motor Speedway and equaled a career best fourth in the final points standings.
Meanwhile, Dicky Woodman has built a Super Late Model team that is one of the best in the business. The Woodman Racing team has joined with a variety of talented drivers over the years to consistently race at the front wherever they go. Drivers such as Cassius Clark, Logan Ruffin, George Brunnhoelzl III, and Jay Fogleman have raced for Dicky Woodman in recent years on the tough PASS South circuit.
The union between Powell and Woodman in PASS actually began last year. The duo raced together three times in 2012, finishing no worse than 11th. Results that have both excited for this year’s prospects.
“Racing in PASS is as tough as it gets. Unlike a Modified, you can go out and slam doors a little and not have to worry about instantly wrecking,” said Powell. “It might be Kraaazy to say, but Dicky thinks we can go out and win several races this year. I hope to prove him right.”
