6th Annual PASS 400 Weekend - 9/11-12/10

Cassius Clark, Johnny Clark, & Bill Rodgers
Johnny Clark Scores PASS 300
Scarborough ME (9/12) Johnny Clark got his shot at the lead late in Sunday’s Pro All Stars Series (PASS) 300 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway and he led when it counted to earn his second win in PASS North’s longest and richest super late model race. Clark passed Bill Rogers with forty to go and held off Cassius Clark by less than three tenths of a second to earn 2010 victory number five for the Clark’s Car Crushing team.

Cassius Clark took his EJ Prescott mount to the front several times throughout the event and looked like the man to beat, but a long battle over third with Richie Dearborn delayed him from catching the front pair until the day’s final restart with nineteen to go. Cassius got to Johnny’s rear bumper cover but the second generation Farmington Flyer raced the leader hard and clean to the checkers, settling for second.

Long stretches of green flag racing and plenty of lead changes highlighted the afternoon. Seekonk Speedway regular Tom Scully led from the pole to lap 30 when Cassius Clark took over and ran off to a straightaway lead. Scully took back the top spot on a restart and then it was Scott Chubbuck using the outside line to take a turn up front. Beech Ridge regular David Oliver led next, putting defending and three time race winner Mike Rowe a lap down just before the 100 lap mark.

Oliver ducked in the pits following a lap120 caution, handing the lead to Travis Benjamin but at the midway mark it was Cassius Clark’s turn to flex his muscle once again He led Benjamin, Johnny Clark, Richie Dearborn and Bill Rodgers across the line at the crossed flags.

The PASS 300 features live pitting and once again strategy, skill and luck in the infield played a role in the event’s outcome. Three quarters of the field came in for fuel and tires during a lap 177 caution period and Johnny Clark was first off pit road with fresh rubber all around, while many of his challengers had slow stops or problems exiting the crowded pit road.

It was Donnie Whitten and Lonnie Sommerville’s turn to battle up front and the pair raced side by side for nearly fifty laps with Bill Rodgers and Johnny Clark right behind. The front four raced side by side lap after lap until Rogers found a way by Sommerville on lap 226, bringing Johnny Clark with him. Rodgers was strong all day and the July PASS 150 winner at the Ridge looked like he might just repeat in the season’s biggest race. Rodgers kept Clark at bay lap after lap until the four time PASS champ slipped by on the bottom at lap 260 for the winning move.

Clark’s nearest championship challenger didn’t fare as well. Ben Rowe’s day was a long one that ended on lap 232 when a sour engine sent him to the infield. Clark’s win and Rowe’s 28th place result nearly locked up a fifth PASS North crown for the Farmingdale Maine super late model star, his third in a row.

The PASS 300 also carried PASS National Championship status and Clark’s win put him in contention for that title as well. National points leader Preston Peltier (15th) second place points man Jay Fogleman (26th) and National third place runner Rowe (28th) all had less than stellar results so that title race will go down to the wire at Newport (TN) Speedway when the PASS South and National Championships are decided at the Mason-Dixon Meltdown on October 16.

The PASS North super late models wrap up their season this Friday evening September 17 at North Woodstock New Hampshire’s White Mountain Motorsports Park.

Winners on PASS 400 Sunday
Scarborough ME (9/12) The PASS Sportsman and Mod series joined the North East Mini Stock tour on Sunday’s PASS 400 Weekend card and all three divisions came through with exciting extra distance feature racing for the fans in the stands.

Grant Aither led thirty two PASS Sportsman racers to the green and kept the lead until both Jay Sands and Craig Smith slipped under the LEE USA track champion on lap five when Smith took the point away from Sands and Clyde Hennessey followed him through. Smith kept the field at bay until lap 35 when mechanical issues ended his afternoon. Sands resumed command and ran away and hid, but another caution erased his straightaway lead. Meanwhile the PASS points leaders had worked their way toward the front Mike Landry, Dan McKeage, and Carey Martin restarted 4th, 6th and 7the respectively. On the restart Landry made his way to second with McKeage hot on his heels. Now it was time to challenge Sands. Sands ran the second groove and Landry the bottom, the pair battling side by side at the half way mark. Hennessey sat third, McKeage fourth and Martin fifth when the field received the crossed flags.

The second half of the 100 lapper featured some longer green flag runs and there was no lack of action. Sands and Landry were still battling for the point and Carey Martin won a battle with McKeage for fourth. The yellow flag flew at lap seventy one and PASS Sportsman point leader Landry was forced to pit returning to the line- up twentieth. Sands now had Martin on his tail with McKeage, Hennessey, and Corey Bubar the top five.

McKeage moved under Martin on the restart and the 2010 Beech Ridge Pro Series champ took the battle to Sands. Meanwhile Landry was watching his thirteen point series slip away, sitting in fourteenth spot with two rows of side by side traffic holding him back. His day went from bad to worse on lap 85 when he got together with Nate Leavitt and crashed off the top of turn three, ending a great race. Race control parked Leavitt for the night.

So Sands had McKeage, Martin and Hennessey to contend with at 15 to go and the front four raced side by side with McKeage by a nose on lap 88,clearing Sands on lap 89. Sands now had his hands full with Carey Martin, giving McKeage a two car length edge, the most any leader had enjoyed all night. At the stripe there was a new PASS Sportsman point leader as Dan McKeage captured his first win of 2010 with Sands, Martin, Hennessey and Bubar second through fifth.

Sumner Sessions jumped out front early in the 50 lap PASS Mod main with Rich Ferriera second and Scott McDaniel up to race third. McDaniel and Jon Brill split the leader with a three wide move to take over the top two spots. Brill took over the point on a lap 13 restart but McDaniel continued to challenge on the bottom, settling into second just in front of Andy Shaw. That trio took off and left the pack and the order remained the same at the half way mark with past series champion Mark Lucas and Allan Wilson completing the top five. Shaw made his move on McDaniel on lap 28 and set sail after Brill. Without a doubt Shaw was looking for a a win to go with his first series championship The caution flew with 15 laps to go, giving Shaw his best shot at Brill. Shaw nosed ahead on the restart and cleared the 77 on lap 39 but the front four raced nose to tail. Another caution gave the front four another shot at the checkers with eight to go. Brill took over the lead after one last caution inducing spin but Shaw came right back on the outside to fulfill every racer’s dream when the third generation racer captured both the PASS Mod fifty lap feature and the 2010 PASS Mod title on the same day. Brill, McDaniel, Lucas and Wilson finished second through fifth.

The North East Mini Stock Tour made their first PASS 300 Sunday appearance and the 50 lap feature win went to Vermonter Chris McKinstry with Tim Boyle second and Calvin Rose third.

The PASS Sportsman Championship will be decided on October 16 when the series wraps up their 2010 campaign at Riverside Speedway in Groveton NH.

Vaughn, Dow and Beaulieu Claim
Saturday PASS 400 Weekend Wins
Scarborough ME (9/11) Day three of PASS 400 weekend was highlighted by qualifying for all three PASS North touring divisions plus features for the Legends, Road Runners and Wildcats.

144 race cars rolled through the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway back gate and from the first green to the final checker the fans in the stands witnessed short track racing at its finest.

Tom Scully Jr., Joey Doiron, David Oliver and PASS Super Late Model point leader Johnny Clark all claimed their qualifiers. Super Late Model consolation rounds went to PASS National Series point leader Preston Peltier and 2009 PASS North Rookie of the Year Nick Ribbe. Sunday’s Last Chance race will determine the final qualifiers for the 300 lap, $10,000 to win PASS 300.


Heat race wins for Sunday’s PASS Sportsman 100 went to Grant Aither, Jay Sands and Craig Smith Sumner Sessions and John Brill came out on top of the PASS Mod heats. The Mods will run a 50 lap feature Sunday and a new PASS Mod Champion will be crowned.

With PASS qualifying complete it was feature time for the Road Runners and the field made quick work of their show with just one lap nineteen caution to mar the 25 lapper. Matt Dow captured the win over Shawn Brackett, David Turner, Tasha Dyer and Donnie Dinsmore.

A twenty two car Legends field ran a 50 lap Nationals qualifier and when the dust cleared it was Evan Beaulieu in victory lane.

Seventy five laps for the Wildcats wrapped up the day’s racing with Mike Short leading the thirty two car field to the green. Short jumped out front from the pole but a miscue sent him back through the field and Nate Leavitt took over the point. Leavitt, Keith Stewart and David Vaughn broke away from the pack at the halfway mark and the trio ran nose to tail until ten to go when Stewart experienced troubles and Vaughn went on by for second.  The caution flew with two circuits remaining, setting up a green-white-checker with Leavitt on the inside and Vaughn on the high side. The pair raced side by side to the white flag, but Vaughn snatched the top spot from Leavitt coming off turn two to claim the win. Leavitt, Steve Benicasa, Louie Anderson and Matt Dow came home second through tenth.

On Sunday the feature racing goes green at 12:15 PM sharp with  the PASS North super late model  last chance qualifier, qualifying and a 50 lap feature for the North East Mini Stock Tour, 100 laps for the PASS Sportsman and the big one, the sixth annual PASS 300.

Thursday Night Open Gets PASS 400 Weekend Off to a Fast Start 
NAPLES ME (9/10) The stars of Maine’s mid week racing series took the spot light Thursday, opening four days of motorsports mania at Scarborough Maine’s Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.120 of the fast and furious racers answered the call to get the sixth annual PASS 400 party started in style.

The Four Cylinders kicked off the night with a fifty lap feature and a thirty-one car field. Kyle Hewins made it two in a row on PASS 400 Thursday night, surviving a torrid battle with Troy Jordan. The pair worked lap traffic for much of the night and Jordan got the better of Hewins from laps 11 to 26 but Hewins was able to drive under Morse to reclaim the lead. The pair put on a show as they worked lap traffic, splitting slower cars and battling for the $500.00 payday e but into the end it was Hewins by 6 car lengths.

The 305/Mad Bomber feature was up next and Adam Lovejoy jumped out front early. Trouble was, Lovejoy made that jump a little too soon and he was docked four spots at the next yellow. That put Paul Ureneck out front on the restart but Lovejoy wasted no time getting to second, putting his ride on Ureneck’s bumper by lap 15. AT the half-way mark it was still Ureneck with Lovejoy hot on his heels, then a straightaway back to Kirk Bean, John Lord and Jason Inman. Lovejoy saw an opening on the bottom and took over the top spot at the line on lap 31 to claim the feature over Ureneck, Kirk Bean, Jon Lord and Jason Curtis.

The Mighty Truckers were up next with Chad Binette and Troy Field occupying the front row Binette led lap one but Field hung tough on the outside and led lap two. Binette kept the pressure on but Field kept control, slowly building upon his lead. At the half way it was Fields, Binette, Brian Beaulieu, Duane Booth and Roger Allard the top five. Jeremy Binette moved up to run fourth with ten to go and Ryan Farrar broke into the top five. Farrar took fourth away from Jeremy Binette with five remaining. Binette caught Field in lapped traffic but Field made it three wide to keep the lead and take home the win by a truck length.

The 350/Outlaws rolled out for the night’s final fifty lapper with Bill Childs Jr. and Mike Short leading the 33 car field to the green. Childs and Short raced the early laps like they were the final five, side by side and rubbing fenders. Short got the jump on an early restart but Childs kept his ride right on Short’s bumper with Chris Burgess and Corey Morgan giving chase. The caution flew on lap seven and race control sent Short to the back of the pack for jumping the previous restart. Short chose to take his mount to the pits and call it a night. That gave Childs back the point with Chris Burgess to his outside. Another early caution flew but not before Corey Morgan was able to take over second from Burgess. That set up a Childs/Morgan restart. Once again it was Childs in the lead with Morgan right on his bumper then Ryan Robbins, Burgess, and Dan Lovejoy third through fifth. Childs held the point at half way and Burgess reclaimed third from Robbins. The Outlaws were having a serious bout with yellow fever but Childs was keeping the field behind him with little difficulty. A lap 34 restart decided the race when Childs failed to come up to speed on the restart, sliding all the way back to fourth. It was Morgan to the lead with Burgess second but Childs was on the move, taking over second from Burgess with ten to go. Morgan had a ten car length advantage but Childs slowly narrowed the gap. Robbins spun out of fourth with eight to go, setting up a battle between Childs and Morgan for the win. The pair got an even restart with Morgan prevailing. Childs stayed right on his bumper, applying the chrome horn but Morgan withstood the challenge and slid across the finish line with an assist from Childs for the victory. Childs, Burgess, Dan Lovejoy and Brian Picard finished second through fifth.

Saturday September 11 is race time with qualifying for the PASS Super Late Models, Mods and Sportsman plus feature racing for the Road Runners, Wildcat/Strictly and Legends divisions. The first green flies at 12:15 PM.

Sunday September 12 will see 50 laps for the PASS Mods, 100 for the PASS Sportsman and a new addition for 2010, a 50 lapper for the North East Mini Stock Tour. Topping off the day will be the sixth annual PASS 300, 300 green flag laps for the super stars in the super cars.

Sunday practice gets underway at 11:00 AM and the first feature is set for a 12:15 PM green flag. All the details are on line at www.proallstarsseries.com and www.beechridge.com

The PASS 400 Weekend Is
Just Around the Corner
Naples ME (8/31) While the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) super late model race teams are prepping for the return of oval track racing to North Wilkesboro (NC) Speedway this weekend, there’ another big weekend of racing on the horizon when the PASS Super Late Models, Mods and Sportsman take to another history-laden venue in the form of Maine’s Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on September 11 and 12.

It’s the sixth edition of PASS 400 weekend, a four day motorsports extravaganza that’s become a must attend event for racers and race fans from all over the eastern seaboard. It’s the longest race of the season for all three PASS North touring series, and there’s track time for almost every circle track division one can find in northern New England.

There’ll be a full field of super late models on hand to try and break the Rowe stranglehold on the 300 lap grind. Mike and Ben Rowe finished 1-2 in the inaugural PASS 300 and Ben earned the victory in 2006. Ben’s dad was back in victory lane in 2007 but Johnny Clark broke the Rowe win skein in 2008. Mike Rowe came back in 2009 to score his third PASS 300.

So will the Rowe family dominance continue in 2010, or will a new face grace victory lane? Certainly there’s plenty of worthy challengers. Johnny Clark has already proven he can get the job done. Adam Bates would like nothing better than to reclaim his Beech Ridge dominance in the 300. Bates has had a tough season but there’s no question he and his team are capable of putting together a winning performance at the Cusack family’s immaculate oval. Beech Ridge regular Bill Rodgers scored a big PASS win in July, and he knows the secret to being around at the end of distance races. Kelly Moore is due at the Ridge, and the veteran racer still has all the necessary tools to score in the 300. Cassius Clark is third in the series standings, but he hasn’t stood atop the podium in 2010. Beech Ridge might be the perfect opportunity for Cash to cash in.

What about Trevor Sanborn? He’s won in both PASS North and South, he’s a multi-time weekly Pro Series winner at Beech Ridge, but a PASS win on his home track continues to elude him. He’s come close on many occasions, but he has all the pieces to the puzzle now and 2010 may be his year to capture the big one.

The list of potential winners goes on and on, and the fact that the PASS 300 is race four of the five race PASS National Championship series will likely add PASS National and PASS South point leader Preston Peltier and his nearest National Championship challenger Jay Fogleman into the mix as well.

The four day racing party gets started Thursday at 5:45 PM with the Little Guy’s PASS mid-week open (more on that next week!), and there’s a full day of practice set for Friday September 10th , starting at 12:00 noon. On Saturday September 11th the racing goes green in earnest with qualifying for the PASS Super Late Models, Mods and Sportsman plus feature racing for the Road Runners, Wildcat/Strictly and Legends divisions.

Then on Sunday September 12th its feature time: 50 laps for the PASS Mods, 100 for the PASS Sportsman and a new addition for 2010, a 50 lapper for the New England Mini Stock Tour. Topping off the day will be the sixth annual PASS 300, 300 green flag laps for the super stars in the super cars.

Sunday practice gets underway at 11:00 AM and the first feature is set for a 12:15 PM green flag.

Look for more information as the big weekend approaches at www.beechridge.com
Mid-Week Warriors Kick Off PASS 400 Weekend at Beech Ridge Thursday
Naples ME (9/6) Their racing divisions have the best names in the sport;; Mad Bombers, Mighty Trucks, Outlaws, Varsity, Runnin’ Rebels, Beetle Bugs and a whole bunch more. They’re the Mid Week Warriors that take little more than a street car (or truck), add the required safety equipment and go racing. For many competitors they are in their first race car ever, and for others the mid week racing wars are just perfect for their budget. It takes cubic inches and talent to win at this level, not cubic dollars.

Maine’s midweek racers put on some of the most competitive and exciting racing out there and they will be in the spotlight Thursday September 9th when they kick off PASS 400 weekend ay Scarborough Maine’s Beech Ridge Motor Speedway. Depending on car count there’s up to fifty laps of racing and five hundred dollars on the line for the winners. That payday is more than most of these guys and gals can earn in a season, so there’s plenty of incentive to win this one. The back gate at Beech Ridge swings open at noon and practice gets underway at 2:00 PM.

2009 Thursday night feature wins went to Kyle Hewins (Runnin’ Rebel four cylinder), Chad Binette (MightyTrucks), Jason Curtis (Junior Varsity) and Larry Emerson (Outlaws).

The biggest Maine racing week of 2010 gets started Thursday at 5:45 PM. There’s a full day of practice set for Friday September 10th starting at 12:00 noon.
