Late-Race Contact Propels Brandon Setzer To $15,000 PASS Win At Hickory
HICKORY, NC (November 18) – Hometown favorite Brandon Setzer took the lead after contact with Garrett Hall coming to the white flag to go on and win the Mason-Dixon MegMeltdown 300 for the Pro All Star Series (PASS) Super Late Models Saturday afternoon at Hickory Motor Speedway. Setzer’s third PASS Super Late Model win was the biggest of his career as he took home the $15,000 winner’s prize.
“He [Hall] had the best car, I hate it ended like that, but the lapped car just screwed him up,” said Setzer, driver of the Romeo Guest Construction/The Jewelry Exchange Ford #6. “As soon as he [Hall] went to the outside I saw the lapped car waving to the inside and I said, ‘Oh, I’ve got a hole,’ I filled the hole, he tried to come back down, but at that point I couldn’t back out. Man, this means the world to me. I could’ve won the Daytona 500 and not be this happy.”
