Ben Rowe Wins PASS North Finale at Unity,
Johnny Clark Earns 2nd Championship

UNITY, Maine (Oct. 22, 2006) - Despite cold temperatures and an aggressive late-race challenge from Cassius Clark, Ben Rowe continued his autumn hot streak Sunday afternoon by capturing the 2006 Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Model division season finale at historic Unity Raceway.
The Turner, Maine, native took the lead for the third and final time on lap 115 and hung on to record his third straight victory on the PASS North Super Late Model/Pro Stock tour. This has been an impressive turnaround for the three-time series champion, after getting off to a slow start in his first season driving for the Richard Moody Racing (RMR) team. Clark fought side-by-side with Rowe in his Team EJP/Chapman Racing Ford Fusion, battling back from an early-race spin to contend for the victory.
Johnny Clark, of Farmingdale, Maine, locked up his second career championship Sunday with a solid run, leading on three occasions and coming home third at the finish. Local favorite Jeff Burgess of nearby Oakland finished fourth, while Trevor Sanborn came from 22nd on the 26-car grid to round out the top five.


"That was some good, hard racing out there today," said Rowe. "Cassius and Johnny are fast here, they raced me clean and that’s all I can ask. My hat is off to this team, once they got us headed in the right direction at Beech Ridge, the car has been awesome to drive. This place can be a handful, but we had the right setup today and held them off again. It’s a terrific way to end the season."


Clark, competing with a broken finger suffered in a hard crash last month at Beech Ridge, capped a terrific season that featured five victories and four runner-up finishes. While he was disappointed to finish second, he was pleased with the team’s performance on Sunday.


"That’s racing at Unity for you," he said. "We had a good race today, the car handled well even after we spun early on. My Dad, Ed (team owner Chapman) and everybody worked hard all season and we led the series in wins. I couldn’t get by Ben today, but we’re still happy. It’s been a successful year for this whole Team EJP organization."


Johnny Clark reflected on his emotional roller-coaster after the caution-plagued event, sounding both relieved and proud after earning his second crown in three years.


"I really wanted to win this one today," said the 2004 series champion who paced the field for 21 laps Sunday. "I think this is a great place to race, and this second championship means a lot to me. Fortunately, we had the consistency needed to pull it off. I was worried coming into today, having somebody like Mike Rowe just eight points behind us was stressful. He is a great driver, but we did what we needed to do today and it feels fantastic."


Finishing sixth through 10th Sunday was Louis Mechalides, Curtis Gerry, Gary Smith, Travis Benjamin and Scott Chubbuck. Thirteen of the 26 starters finished on the lead lap, exactly half the field. Nineteen cautions slowed the proceedings, most of which were caused simply by the lack of grip available on the frigid racing surface.


In earlier feature action, Jason Taylor drove to victory in the 40-lap PASS Modified season finale. The Searsmont, Maine driver held off a hard-charging Gary Norris Jr. for top honors. Chris Staples put in a strong run and locked up the 2006 divisional crown. Troy Morse of Brunswick, Maine rounded out the top five in a thrilling closer for the open-wheel warriors.


Terry Merrill of Saco, Maine capped his 2006 season with a victory in the 75-lap PASS Super Sportsman/Limited Challenge Series feature. Mike Landry worked his way through traffic like a seasoned veteran and came home second, while Allen Moeller finished third. Gary Modugno and Steve Fogg rounded out the top five in Round 3 of the three-race series. Dan McKeage drove to a solid 15th place finish, which gave him the overall championship.


Congratulations to all of our winners on a frigid yet exciting weekend of racing at Unity.

Nason Captures PASS Outlaw Late Model 100 at Unity,
Ramstrom Clinches 2006 Combo Championship

UNITY, Maine (October 21, 2006)- One of the Pine Tree state's most colorful and well-known racers added another victory to his storied career Saturday. Ralph Nason took the lead for the final time from Corey Williams on lap 79 and survived three late-race restarts to win the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Outlaw Late Model 100 Saturday at the famed Unity Raceway.

The 100-lap tilt capped a full day of racing as PASS completed day one of its two-day 2006 Championship Weekend program. Three titles were decided Saturday (Outlaw Late Model North, Central and Overall), and three more (PASS North Super Late Models, PASS Mods and the PASS Sportsman Challenge Series) will be wrapped up on Sunday afternoon.

Kevin Nutting, Carl McAlpine, Thom Bell and Kurt Hewins were also feature winners on a sunny but extremely windy day for racing at the historic 1/3-mile oval.

Nason, a Unity native who also happens to own the speedway, led the race on four occasions and clearly had the fastest car in the field. After starting seventh on the 25-car grid, the cagey veteran and three-time Oxford 250 winner went to the outside of Williams to take the point for the first time on lap 34. Williams made Nason work for this one, leading on three occasions for a total of 37 laps. The young hotshoe from Boothbay settled for second, while local favorite George Fernald Jr. of nearby Benton was third. Chuck Colby and Jimmy Rosenfield rounded out the top five.

"I was a little worried on those restarts," said Nason. "With the track this cold, it took a few laps to get any heat in the tires. Once they got warm, my car really took off and handled like a dream. Corey was fast on the outside, and he gave me a run for it two or three times. I'm thrilled we could hold him off and bring home the win. There are a lot of good cars in this division, it takes a strong car to win one of these things."

Williams was thrilled with his performance, and expressed his feelings about battling with one of Maine's best-known racers for the win.

"It felt really good to run up front today," said the former Legends division standout. "Ralph is a tough racer, I've been watching him race since I was a kid and just to compete this well against him is pretty special. This was a great run for us, now we'll get ready for tomorrow and hope to run strong in the 150."

Fernald started 17th on the grid and fought tooth-and-nail all afternoon to record a podium finish. With a cold track, traction was at a premium for everybody as they fought for position. "I didn't think we could make it up this far," he said. "It was a tough battle for us, every time we would start making headway another caution would come out and we'd have to start over again on the restart. The car was hooked up today, which allowed me to pick my way up through traffic. I'm thrilled to be standing here, and have to thank my team for their efforts."

Nine cautions slowed the proceedings, most for minor incidents. Of them all, the worst was brought out at lap 76 when several cars came together going into Turn 3. After a brief delay to remove debris, action continued and Nason set about his quest for the biggest trophy. seven cars finished on the lead lap, and 15 of the 25 starters were running at the finish.

Finishing sixth through tenth Saturday was Mike Fowler, Mike Thomas, Matt Lee, Brian Hinkley and Mike Harnish.

Teenage sensation Derek Ramstrom locked up the overall Outlaw Late Model championship with his 13th place finish Saturday. The 15 year-old hotshoe from West Boylston, Massachusetts, looked impressive in the early going, running inside the top five until just after halfway. He got caught up in an altercation on lap 61 and suffered damage to his No. 35 machine. After pitting for repairs, he returned to the speedway and was running at the finish.

"What a great season it has been for us," said a humble Ramstrom. "My Dad, this whole team, the sponsors Charter Communications and W. Boylston Auto Parts, everybody has just kept a great car under me all season and that's what it takes. We got into a little trouble here today, but overall we've been lucky. I'm happy with this much success in my first season of driving full-bodied race cars. It's been a blast."

In earlier feature action, Nutting drove to victory in the 40-lap Mini Truck feature. McAlpine earned his win in an exciting Stock 4 feature, with Kevin Douglass and Lewis Batchelder second and third respectively. Bell, of Minot, Maine, out-gunned Judd Derbyshire and Daryl Varney to claim the 40-lap Stock 8 feature. Hewins notched a win in a thrilling 40-lap Wildcat feature, with Lyman McKeage second and Skip Tripp third. There were plenty of side-by-side battles in each of the support races, despite the fact these were non-points paying events.

The 2006 PASS Championship Weekend will conclude Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. with a 150-lap season finale for the Super Late Model/Pro Stock machines. Just eight markers separate points leader Johnny Clark from second place Mike Rowe as they wrap up their battle for the coveted PASS North championship.

2006 PASS Campaign Wraps Up with
Championship Weekend at Unity Raceway


NAPLES, Maine (Oct. 17, 2006) - After last weekend's long haul to Nova Scotia for the Fall Foliage 250, all that remains on the 2006 Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North schedule is Championship Weekend, Oct. 21-22, at the historic Unity Raceway in Unity, Maine.


Titles will be decided this weekend in three divisions; the ultra-fast PASS North Super Late Model/Pro Stocks, the Outlaw Late Models and the Modifieds, where a third new champion will be crowned in the third year for the exciting open-wheel division.


Racing will get under way at 1 p.m. both days. Saturday's card will be highlighted by a 100-lap feature for the Outlaw Late Models, plus 40 lap features for Minis/Stock 4s, Pure Stocks/Stock 8s, and Mini Trucks, and a 50 lap Wildcat/Strictly feature. Over in the Outlaw Late Model pits, anticipation and nervousness will prevail as the drama unfolds Saturday afternoon. Teenage sensation Derek Ramstrom has been on a roll and could secure the overall points title with a solid run. Going into this final weekend for the Outlaws, Ramstrom is in second place in both divisions, and the driver of the #35 only needs a solid finish to nail down the inaugural PASS Outlaw Late Model Division Overall Title. The 15 year-old from Worcester, Mass., needs to finish five spots ahead of Jimmy Renfrew to earn the crown in the Central Division in this combo Central and Northern Divisions race. Local favorite Matt Lee of Albion, Maine is tough to beat at Unity, and he currently leads Ramstrom by just 14 points in the Northern Division.

Sunday's program will feature a 150-lap season finale for the PASS North Super Late Model Series teams, the PASS Modified Division Championship race, and round #3 of the 2006 PASS Super Street/Sport Series/Limited Challenge Series. For 2004 series champion and current point leader Johnny Clark, a strong run Sunday would not only give him a second title but also serve to build momentum for 2007. Clark, of Farmingdale, Maine, finished fourth in last Sunday's 250 at Riverside. For second-place points man Mike Rowe, it's one last chance to overtake Clark and add a PASS crown to an already-impressive multi-decade racing resume. Rowe trails Clark by a scant eight markers headed into Sunday's finale.


Leading the charge into Unity is Ben Rowe, winner of last Sunday's Fall Foliage 250 at the all-new Riverside Speedway in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. The Turner native had his Richard Moody and Sons Construction Chevrolet dialed in last weekend, and has enjoyed several strong runs at Unity in past seasons. Momentum is a huge factor in success in this sport, and the RMR squad definitely has that on their side, with consecutive wins at Beech Ridge and Riverside. Ben will be going for three in a row while his dad Mike and Johnny Clark will settle the championship race.


In the ground-pounding Modified division, Chris Staples could lock up the championship with a solid run. The Brunswick, Maine driver has a 39-point advantage over Troy Morse and Jason Taylor, who are tied for second while Dana Grover and Richie Morse are fourth and fifth. Only 56 points separate the top five drivers, adding drama to their finale come Sunday afternoon.


Sunday afternoon will also see the final round in the three-race 2006 PASS Super Stock/Sport Series/Limited Challenge Series. This exciting program has brought teams who compete weekly in the Super Stocks, Sport Series, and Limited Sportsman divisions around the northeast together for some terrific racing for $1000 to win. Dan McKeage captured Round #1 on Sept. 30 at Beech Ridge, while his cousin, Mike Landry, won Round #2 at Star Speedway on Oct. 7. After the side-by-side battle those two had at Star, fans at Unity are in for a treat when the Challenge Series takes the green flag.
