Thompson, CT — Pro All Stars Series (PASS) and American-Canadian Tour (ACT) officials have announced the full schedule of events for the ten-division 49th Icebreaker Weekend line-up at Thompson Speedway.

After a full afternoon of practice on Friday, March 31st open to all Icebreaker divisions, Saturday brings an exciting opening day for the 2023 season. The Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models make their 21st appearance at the 0.625-mile oval to headline the Saturday portion of Icebreaker weekend with a 75-lap showdown.

Saturday’s showcase will also include the EXIT Reality Pro Truck Series and a $1,200 to win 50-lap Street Stock Open event. Starting off their 2023 seasons will also be the Sunoco Modifieds, who are pulling double-duty on both days of Icebreaker weekend, plus the always thrilling Thompson Late Models. Both local divisions will be pulling for 30-lap season opener events.
