Officials at the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) and Oxford Plains Speedway (OPS) announced today they have received an official entry from two-time NASCAR Cup Champion Kyle Busch for the All That's Metal Celebration of America 300 scheduled for July 2nd and 3rd. The super-star driver, often referred to as "Rowdy," becomes entry number 41 on the list as excitement continues to build for the first annual $40,000 to win event.

"A few of us have been talking about doing this race with Kyle for a couple of months now," said former Cup owner Archie St. Hilaire. "Kyle loves competing at Oxford Plains Speedway and we were finally able to get the right combination of people involved to make it happen."

The effort is a collaboration between Busch and Archie St Hilaire of Go Fas Racing, Peter Petit of Petit Motorsports, Busch's cup spotter Derek Kneeland, and Cushman Competition who will field the car. Primary support will come from Keen Parts, and Weirs Buick GMC through its Fischer Snow Plow brand.

"TJ and Tom Keen really like to support short track racing, and one of the ways they are able to do that is bring in drivers like Kyle to these races to help give them a boost," said St Hilaire. "Between them and all the others involved we were able to make it work for everyone."

Busch is the owner of 231 wins in the top three NASCAR divisions, including 102 in the Xfinity series, 66 in the Truck series, and 63 in the top-level Cup series. While Busch's day job is centered on NASCAR, the 38-year-old Las Vegas native is also well known for entering bigger races at the grassroots level, especially those that carry a little extra prominence like the 1st annual All That's Metal Celebration of America 300. Busch is already a two-time winner at OPS sweeping both the PASS 150 and Oxford 250 back in 2011.

"We are absolutely thrilled that Kyle wants to be a part of our first 300," said PASS president and Oxford Plains Speedway owner Tom Mayberry. "A lot of people in that group worked really hard to put this deal together. It think it's going to be great for the fans and the competitors."

Busch will drive the Cushman Completion car that Austin Teras wheeled to three victories at Oxford Plains Speedway in 2023. The car will be re-numbered to the driver's traditional short track number 51 that "Rowdy" has made popular throughout the last 15 years of barnstorming short track special events.

The All That's Metal Celebration of America 300 will also feature a lap leader contingency. All 300 laps will be available for purchase at only $50 per lap meaning the July 3rd winner of the All That's Metal Celebration of America 300 could take home nearly $50,000!

For his part, Busch is coming to the first annual race with the intention of winning. It is not uncommon to see the NASCAR star climb from behind the wheel of his Super Late Model and begin wrenching on the car himself to make improvements. It's no secret that Busch is a racer who not only loves to race, but loves to win races, and will not skimp on his efforts to be standing in victory lane come July 3rd.

Tickets for the All That's Metal Celebration of America 300 will be available the day of the race and will be general admission and priced at $25 for adults for Tuesdays preliminary qualifying rounds and $40 for Wednesday's feature action.

Also in action over the two days will be the New England Super Modified Series racing for 100 laps and $10,000 to win along with other support divisions to be announced. A full event schedule will be released in the coming weeks. For those wishing to stay on the grounds, camping information is posted.
