Re: The Finish of the PASS Super Late Model race at Oxford Plains Speedway on July 31, 2016

After viewing multiple videos and photographs and discussing it with both race teams, we decided that it was a dead heat finish.

A video taken 32 feet behind the start finish line shows the 97 car possibly slightly ahead but a shot from this angle will always favor the outside car.

After talking to many people, whose opinions varied equally and after trying to recreate the finish the best possible way with photos of vehicles taken at the finish line from several different angles, we have decided to call it a dead heat finish.

We are sorry for the confusion to the fans and race teams. We’ll look to improve video angles for the 250.

LANDRY - HELLIWELL - POLEWARCZYK
It's Helliwell by inches in
PASS Super Late Model HP Hood 150
at Oxford Plains Speedway
Oxford, Maine - Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, New Hampshire prevailed by inches in a thrilling HP Hood 150 Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model race Sunday night at Oxford Plains Speedway. Helliwell just managed to edge out Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, New Hampshire after an epic battle over the last dozen circuits of the 150-lap race.

Polewarczyk led most of the event's second half, looking for his second straight PASS Super Late Model win after his career-first score at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire seven days earlier.

But Helliwell had other ideas, methodically working his way into contention from an 18th starting position to set up the late-race showdown with 12th-place starter Polewarczyk. They raced side-by-side for most of the last twelve laps, swapping lanes midway through the battle.

Super Late Model Win in Foley Oil 150
at White Mountain Motorsports Park
North Woodstock, New Hampshire - Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson nailed down his first-ever Pro All Stars Super Late Model victory Sunday afternoon in the Foley Oil 150 at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire.

Polewarczyk certainly earned his trip to victory lane, working tirelessly in an effort to get by six-time PASS Super Late Model champion Johnny Clark of Farmingdale, Maine. Clark, seeking his first victory of the year, led most of the race before Polewarczyk took command for good.

Polewarczyk and Clark waged a tremendous, extended battle that included the eventual winner 'giving back' the lead when he was adjudged to have jumped the gun on a restart versus Clark. The six-time series titlist wouldn't make it easy for Polewarczyk, as he seeks to snap an extended dry spell on the circuit.

POLEWARCZYK - BENJAMIN - HALL
Benjamin gets first PASS win
this year in Southern Maine
Chrysler Dodge Jeep 150
Scarborough, Maine - Travis Benjamin of Morrill nailed down his first Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model win of the season Tuesday night at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway's Southern Maine Chrysler Dodge Jeep 150. It was the first victory for Benjamin with the Pettit Motorsports team he joined this season.

Benjamin was in control both early and late in the 150-lap event, battling several competitors for position through the middle stages of the race. At the end it was hometown Scarborough racer Garrett Hall pushing Benjamin across the finish line, falling just short of claiming his third win this year on the series.

Both Hall and third-place finisher Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, New Hampshire mounted serious challenges to Benjamin's lead, especially on restarts. Former Beech Ridge track champion Dave Farrington Jr. of Jay led a healthy portion of the race, looking like a serious threat to score his first-ever PASS triumph en route to a fourth-place finish.

Oxford, Maine - Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, New Hampshire raced to a convincing win aboard the Bruce Bernhardt Ford to earn a career-first victory at Oxford Plains Speedway in Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model competition on Sunday evening.

Helliwell's triumph earned an immediate financial reward of $2000, but more importantly, it nails down a coveted guaranteed spot in the rich, 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 on August 28 if he otherwise fails to earn a spot in all available qualifying races.

Lee, NH - Joe Squeglia, Jr. of Derry, New Hampshire showed the Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model touring stars the fast way around Lee USA Speedway Friday night, claiming his first-ever touring series victory over a stellar field of New England's premiere full-bodied stock car racers.

Squeglia outgunned fellow front row starter Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, Massachusetts for the early lead, battled series regular Bryan Kruczek through the middle stages of the 150-lapper, then outran former series champion Travis Benjamin of Morrill, Maine to the checkered flag. It was clearly the biggest career win for one of the happiest winners to claim top honors in recent PASS North Series history.

Benjamin was closing as the laps ran out, finishing 1.67 seconds behind the winner after starting the race from 15th position. Hermon, Maine's Mike Hopkins drove from his 12th starting position to a third-place finish in his first-ever visit to New Hampshire's Center of Speed.

FARRINGTON - HOPKINS - DEARBORN

Hopkins Leads All 150 Laps
for First PASS SLM Victory

Epping, NH (May 21) - On a night that fulfilled the full moon superstition, Hermon, Maine driver Mike Hopkins dominated the 22 car field at Star Speedway to pick up his first career Pro All Stars Series super late model win in the Support 50 Legs PASS 150. By virtue of his win in heat race #1, Hopkins would start on the pole for the feature event and would lead all 150 laps.

In a race that saw the caution fly seven times (Laps 5, 60, 64, 82, 96, 142, and 148), Hopkins was able to take the lead on each and every re-start. Hopkins would be challenged on the green/white/checker finish by Jay, Maine driver Dave Farrington, Jr. The two drivers traded paint when the field went green, but Hopkins was able to hold off Farrington for the win.

Scarborough, Maine racer
first repeat victor this year
Hermon, Maine - Garrett Hall of Scarborough charged into contention from his sixth row starting position, battling his way to victory lane Sunday in a rain-plagued 150-lap Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model race that went the scheduled distance at Speedway 95 in Hermon.

Hall, who said he was told the track "was flat and bumpy" had never seen the track prior to Sunday's event. After several rain delays interrupted practice sessions and qualifying races, weather continued to threaten, so Hall - starting back in the field as a previous 2016 race winner on the series, wasted little time making his way through the field on the tight track.

Hall battled hometown racer Mike Hopkins midway through the 150-lap for the lead, and Hopkins appeared to be the man to beat until Hall emerged from the pack. Hudson, New Hampshire teenager Derek Griffith got by Hopkins late in the race to claim runner-up honors, and the second time he was closest to Hall under the checkered flag.

DJ Shaw bests Joey Doiron on restart to score Southern Maine Chrysler Jeep Dodge PASS North Super Late Model 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway
Scarborough, Maine -- DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire drove from third position to first on a restart with four laps remaining in Saturday's Southern Maine Chrysler Jeep Dodge 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway to nail down his first Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model win of the season.

Shaw, the 2014 PASS North Super Late Model champion, watched Doiron blast on by earlier in the race after the Berwick, Maine driver, and eventual runner-up, charged from his 14th starting position into a lead threatened only by hometown racer Garrett Hall - the opening day PASS Super Late Model winner at Connecticut's Thompson Speedway - until the final pair of restarts took place, with six and four laps remaining, respectively.

Ben Rowe breaks dry spell at Oxford Plains Speedway in PASS Super Late Models,
Bobby Therrien tops ACT Late Models
Oxford, Maine -- Ben Rowe of Turner edged DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire by a razor-thin margin of .023-seconds in a wild, and wildly-competitive, Speedway Homes 150 for Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models on Sunday at Oxford Plains Speedway.

"I've got to thank (new crew chief) Mickey Green for coming on board," Rowe said in victory lane, greeted by a decidedly mixed reaction from a very vocal crowd after the race. "I haven't had a top ten finish here in about five years - it was in the paper - and Mickey and his guys got us back on the right track, and my spotter (Steve Tapley) did a great job today."

Rowe started 27th, and had methodically worked his way into third position behind Bryan Kruczek of Newmarket, New Hampshire and Dan McKeage of Gorham after McKeage had led almost the entire race to that point. Rowe found an opening under Kruczek as they headed into turn one on a restart, and contact between the two as Kruczek tried to close the hole saw him bounce into McKeage, who was forced three-wide to the outside, costing him several positions.

Garrett Hall Wins PASS Super
Late Model Race at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park
First-ever touring series victory for
young racer from Scarborough, Maine
Thompson, Connecticut -- Garrett Hall of Scarborough, Maine nailed down his first-ever Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model victory in the 75-lap season opener for the PASS North Tour, also offering National Championship points, Sunday afternoon at Connecticut's Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park.

Hall, driving his Quinn's Insulation car, numbered 94, outgunned early race leader Trevor Sanborn of East Parsonsfield, Maine midway through the race to claim the top spot after an extended, spirited battle. He then held off a determined challenge from Hudson, New Hampshire's Derek Griffith, aboard the LCM Racing 12, to post the win.

Hall, a 21-year-old competitor who prior to this season spent almost his entire racing career on relatively-flat, third-mile ovals in his home state, credited a February trip to Florida's New Smyrna Speedway with helping himself and the team to dial the car in on New England's biggest and fastest oval short track.

"We would have never been able to do this without that trip to New Smyrna, even though we didn't run well there," Hall said in victory lane after thanking his crew, family and sponsors.-
