Cassius Clark Scores Convincing PASS North Victory at Scotia
Maine Driver Comes Back After Pit Stop To Pull Away From Field
in Forbes Chevrolet-Olds 200

NAPLES, ME (June 24, 2007) – Cassius Clark was the dominant force when the PASS North Super Late Model Series visited Scotia Speedworld near Halifax, Nova Scotia for the Forbes Chevrolet-Olds 200 on Saturday night.

After Shawn Turple, Travis Benjamin, Richie Dearborn and Johnny Clark all led laps early on, Cassius Clark took command of the event just after it was one-quarter finished. He stayed out front until making a pit stop for two new tires and fuel, then reassumed the lead from Johnny Clark with 30 laps to go and sailed to victory from there. The margin of victory for Cassius Clark was over three seconds.

PASS North point leader Ben Rowe finished in the runner-up position, with Trevor Sanborn taking the third position in his first visit to the Scotia facility. Johnny Clark finished fourth with Turple being the highest finishing Canadian driver in the fifth spot.

The PASS North Super Late Models will return to action Saturday, June 30th for the All-Star 200 at Epping, New Hampshire’s All-Star Speedway.
Cassius Clark Takes Trip to Canada and Brings Back a Big Trophy
Mainer Wins Forbes 200 PASS North Race at Scotia Speedworld

Whenever a citizen crosses the United States/Canadian border, they are asked if they have any items that they acquired out of country to declare. After his trip North of the Border this weekend, Maine’s Cassius Clark had to declare some hardware on his return home. It wasn’t the type of hardware that he could have bought at the country’s Canadian Tire or Home Hardware chains though. It was the type of hardware that could only be earned by winning a race.

Clark took home the top trophy in Saturday night’s Forbes Chevrolet-Olds 200 at Scotia Speedworld, near Halifax, Nova Scotia, but he didn’t have any trouble getting it through customs.

“It wasn’t too bad this time, but you never know what to expect [crossing the border],” said Clark. “It’s all about who is sitting in the chair. When we came back, they didn’t even open up the trailer. Sometimes, you get a race fan who gets pretty delighted when a trophy comes back through, but sometimes they just check out your license and send you on your way. That’s not bad either.”

The Forbes 200 took place under threatening skies and a not-so-bright forecast, but after a slight rain delay, all 200 laps of the race took place just as advertised. At the beginning of those laps, Clark played it safe. 

All Ingredients Are In Place for a Great PASS North Race at Scotia

Forbes Chevrolet-Oldsmobile 200 Will Feature Best Racers From Two Countries

NAPLES, ME – What for a great racing weekend?   Great competition?  Great fans?  A great facility?

When the PASS North Super Late Models head North of the Border for the June 23rd Forbes Chevrolet-Oldsmobile 200 at Scotia Speedworld in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the event will have all three ingredients.

For starters, the entry list will be stocked with talent.  PASS North regulars Johnny Clark, Ben Rowe, Mike Rowe, Richie Dearborn, Cassius Clark, Travis Benjamin, Joey Porciello, Derek Ramstrom and Trevor Sanborn are all expected to make the trip.

In addition, several of the best Super Late Model drivers in the Canadian Maritimes will be entering the race.  You can expect to see guys like John Flemming, Lonnie Sommerville, Donald Chisholm and Rollie MacDonald attend. 

You can expect that both camps of drivers will be strong in the race.

“It’s fun racing with those guys,” said Mike Rowe of his Canadian counterparts.  “They all go good there.  There are five or six of the Canadian guys who run just as well as we do.  If you can win up there, you feel like you’ve accomplished something.”

Then there are the fans.  Followers of Canadian short track racing are a different breed.  They enjoy a great race and will pack the house to show their support.

“The fans are great,” said Richie Dearborn.  “After the race, they are all over you.  They won’t let you out of the car.  You can’t get to the trailer quick enough to change.  But that’s good.  It’s just an awesome experience.”

“The fans are just awesome up there,” said Rowe.  “It’s a great place to go, and they really welcome us up there.  It’s just a great place.”

Finally, there is the track itself.  Scotia is a unique facility with 17 years of great racing in its past.  The track is 3/10th of a mile and showcases both handling and raw speed.

“You’ve got long straightways and tight corners,” said Rowe.  “It’s a challenging track.  You’ve got to handle pretty good up there.”

“It’s different,” said Dearborn.  “It’s rough and tight, and we’re used to racing on that type of track.  It’s a neat little track, but it is really different from anywhere else that we run at.”

Both Rowe and Dearborn can be considered among the early favorites in the Forbes Chevrolet-Oldsmobile 200.  They both always run strong at Scotia and are ranked within the top four of the current PASS North standings.

“I sure have had some good runs up there,” said Rowe.  “We’ve got the car handling good up there.  We were running second in our last race there when we broke a rear end.  We’ve had good success up there and hope to have some more this time.”

“Last year, we were running second in the 250 and came in for a green-flag stop,” said Dearborn.  “We had somebody else jacking the car and got messed up.”

The PASS North Forbes Chevrolet-Oldsmobile 200 at Scotia Speedworld is scheduled for Saturday, June 23rd
