Cassius Clark Wins PASS North Event at White Mountain

Ben Rowe Finishes Fifth and Secures 2007 PASS North Championship

NAPLES, ME (October 14, 2007) – Cassius Clark of Farmington, Maine scored his second Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Model of the year in Sunday’s season finale at White Mountain Motorsports Park (NH).  Clark fought a spirited battle for the lead throughout much of the race with Trevor Sanborn. 

Mike Rowe won his heat race and finished second in the feature event, but could not gain enough points to catch his son Ben Rowe in the championship standings.  Ben finished fifth despite having a tire that was going flat.  His finish locked up the 2007 PASS North championship.  Ben is now a four-time series champion. 

Sanborn, who spun out of the lead on lap 93 after getting into oil on the track, rebounded to finish third.

McKeage PASS Sportsman Champion

After his top five finish in the Wildcat race, Lyman McKeage settled in to watch his son Dan try to claim the first PASS Pullen Sportsman Series title. Dan McKeage started on the pole as a result of his win in his heat race in the silver #38 with a 33 point lead over second place runner Jerry Harrison. Unfortunately, Harrison started at the back of the field and had a long way to go to catch McKeage.

McKeage went out to the lead followed by Boe Green, the Lee USA Speedway Sportsman champion. The laps clicked off quickly with a few minor spins that didn’t bring out the yellow as everyone kept going, and at the halfway mark in the 50 lapper, down from the scheduled 75 because of the threat of rain, McKeage was safely out front. But the battle for second to sixth was intense, with the #9 of Mike Davis, the #8 of Clyde Hennessey, Jr, the #40 of Mike Landry ,the #18K of Justin Karkos, and #93 of Green all running nose to tail.

As good as it was in the first half, things went south quickly after halfway. On lap 26, Shane Tatro in the #7 came to a stop in turn four bringing out the yellow, putting a sour note on a strong season-long run for Tatro. On lap 30, everything went bad for eight competitors in a big mid pack tangle on the backstretch. The #68 of Jonathan Ledger got the worst of it as he sat there with his hat exposed to the clouds and his roof dangling off the rear deck. The #60 of Tommy Smithers, one of the original participants in the wreck slid all the way from the backstretch to the frontstretch and kept on going. The #66 of Ernie Wallace, Jr, the #28 of Steve Heinz, the 21X of Jason Welch, the #2 of Robert Emery, Jr, the #10 of Steven Bly, and the #64 of Robbie Bodwell were all involved.

After the red flag was lifted, some of the participants got going on there own and others went off on the hook. On the restart, Hennessey in the #8 got the jump on McKeage, but the #38 was too much to handle and McKeage took the lead back down the backstretch.

With ten to go, it was McKeage, Landry in the #40 up to second, Hennessey, Karkos, Davis, the #47 of Nate Weston trying to hold on to third in the points over Landry, Duane Seekins in the #19S, and the #35X of Kris Watson. Weston needed to get around the #9 of Davis to cement his position and he almost waited too long as he made the successful move with six to go.

At the checkers, it was McKeage, Landry, Hennessey, Karkos, and Weston. After a first class smoke show by McKeage, he and runner up Harrison exchanged high fives out the windows on the frontstretch.

Short Wins Wildcat Open

(Naples, ME – October 14, 2007) Why should the last race of the season be any different from many other PASS North shows in the 2007 season? It rained. Not for all that long, but it rained at the end of practice and pushed the start of the show ahead by an hour or so.

The skies didn’t clear, but the rain did stop and the heat races and the consis for all three divisions were run off quickly and without any major incidents.

The Wildcat/Super Street/Limited 50 lap feature was the first feature of the afternoon with the #56 of Mike Short of Auburn, ME quickly taking the lead on lap 7, with the #12X Skip Tripp of Sabbatus, ME, the #40 of Lyman McKeage of Gorham, ME, and the #45 of Cole Watson of Naples, ME right there on his tail.

A couple of quick yellows slowed the early pace, but things settled down and at the 25 lap mark it was Short, Tripp, the #113 of Tommy Thompkins of Carthage, ME, McKeage, and a fast charging Alby Ovitt of Barrington, NH in the #35. Ovitt took fourth from McKeage, and then took off after the top three.

With ten to go, it was still Short, Tripp, Tompkins, Ovitt, and McKeage. The leaders came up on a group of lapped cars having their own little tussle. The seas miraculously parted for Short, but then closed just as quickly before Tripp and Thompkins could make their way through.

At the checkers, it was Short, Tripp, Thompkins, Ovitt, and McKeage.

Staples PASS Modified Champ

(Naples, ME – October 13, 2007) Championship Saturday at White Mountain Motorsports Park, N. Woodstock, NH was a repeat for one team and one better for another.

In the PASS MODS 50 lap feature, all Chris Staples had to do was take the green flag and he had back-to-back championships. He did it, but there was a lot more than that to a great modified race. For Chris Smith, Jason Taylor, Mark Lucas, and Troy Morse, it could be second, third or even fifth at the end of the day since there were only 23 points separating second and fifth.

The #04 of Chad Harrington and young Scott McDaniel in the #14 brought the field to the green, with the#04 taking the lead and McDaniel settling in behind. On lap 6, Richie Morse in the #34 moved into second, but it was Jason Taylor in the #8 making his statement for second in the points. On lap 11, he was up to fifth and on lap 16 he moved into second. And on lap 18, he took the lead as the caution came out for the first time for a multi-car incident in turn four that put the #6, #1, and #01 spinning.

The #14 of Scott McDaniel ended a great run in the top five with a blown tire and a trip into the frontstretch wall on lap 22. On the restart, Taylor jumped out ahead of Richie Morse’s #34, and at the halfway mark it was Taylor, Morse, Harrington, Greg Ellis in the #29, and Mark Lucas in the #9, who was making a late charge.

On lap 40, the #01 of Ronald Godden, Jr went around on the backstretch bringing out the second yellow of the race. On the restart, Lucas was right there with Taylor and the two went side-by-side over the final ten laps. Coming off turn four, it was a toss up, but at the line Taylor took the win by two or three feet over Lucas. Richie Morse was third, Chris Smith to fourth, and Greg Ellis in a solid fifth.

Staples brought the #5 home sixth and claimed his second title in two years.

Rosenfield PASS Outlaw Champ

(Naples, ME – October 13, 2007) Championship Saturday at White Mountain Motorsports Park, N. Woodstock, NH was a repeat for one team and one better for another.

The #66X of Mike Fowler and the #57 of Zig Geno brought the 24 car Otlaw field to the green. Things almost went really badly for #44 of Jim Rosenfield as he and the #01 of Joe Decker got together coming off turn four on lap one, but both kept going without bringing out the yellow.

On lap 36, the leaders were already lapping cars, but the #72 of Brian Whitney, who was only eight points behind Rosenfield for the North Division championship, and Ryan Nolin of Georgia, VT in the Mountain Air Systems #78 in his first PASS Outlaw Series outing were not about to give up their side-by-side battle for the leaders. But, after a ten lap battle, Fowler squeezed by the two coming out of turn four and put them both down a lap.

At the halfway mark, it was Fowler, the #53 of Alan Wilson, and the #23 of D. J. Shaw. On lap 55, the leaders had to scramble into the infield grass as the #20 of Brian Henry and the #87 of Dave Bitondo tangled in turn three. Several lapped cars scrambled by the leaders as they came across the grass on the frontstretch and moved to the back of the field on the restart.

A quick spin by Mike Thomas in the #25 brought out the fourth yellow of the day on lap 58, but Thomas got it going in front of the leaders and saved himself a lap. Fowler jumped out again to the lead on the restart. Wilson took to the outside to challenge Fowler, but D J. Shaw took the open low line and took over second. Wilson doesn’t give up that easily, however, and at lap 75 he took second back from D. J.

On lap 80, Donnie Lashua in the #21 saw an end to a good day as he coasted to a stop in turn two bringing out yellow number five. Young Shaw spun in turn four on lap 82, and several cars dodged around him as the young gun kept it going but lost several spots.

With ten laps to go, it was still Fowler, Wilson, with Matt Lee in the #00 making it a three-way battle. A quick debris yellow at lap 91 saw Fowler take off again to a three car length lead. On lap 93, the great run of Wilson went bad as he and Lee tangled off turn four with several cars behind them including the #57 of Geno, the #55 of Jimmy Renfrew, and the #15 of Chris Wilk all getting caught up in the wreck. Lee drove off quickly to maintain second, but Wilson was done for the day

Fowler went out to the lead again, and Lee couldn’t catch him over the last seven laps, and Fowler claimed his first PASS Outlaw win after running well in many races, but not having the luck to close it out. This time he was the class of the field and made it all work.

Rosenfield avoided trouble after his lap one scare and brought home the PASS Outlaw Series Combo title for the Middleboro, MA veteran after he claimed the Central title last year. And, as a bonus, he also claimed the North Division title, but gave up the Central crown to Walt Hammond.

PASS Modifieds, Outlaws, and Sportsman Championships To Be Settled This Weekend

(Naples, ME – October 12, 2007) Chris Staples is feeling pretty comfortable in first place going into Saturday’s Championship 50 lap finale for the PASS Modifieds at White Mountain Motorsports Park, N. Woodstock, NH on Saturday October 13th. However, Chris Smith, Mark Lucas, Jason Taylor, and Troy Morse have a different comfort level.

Smith, in his rookie season in a PASS Modified, is 51 points behind Staples, but he’s only one point ahead of third-place Mark Lucas. Lucas is none too comfortable either with Jason Taylor only six points back, and Troy Morse is looking to get in the mix 16 points behind Taylor.

The PASS Outlaws will have 100 green-flag laps on Saturday to see if Jimmy Rosenfield, the 2006 Central Division Champion, can hold off Jay Sands who is lurking 36 points off the lead for the 2007 PASS Outlaw Combo Championship in third place in both the North and Central divisions. If Jimmy finishes ninth or better, Jay can’t catch him for the Combo Title. Jimmy is leading both the North and Central divisions, but Brian Whitney is only eight points behind Jimmy in the North division, and Walt Hammond is only three points behind in the race for the Central Division crown. You can be sure that they’re all going to be looking in the mirror as well as out the windshield for all 100 of the green-flag laps.

On Sunday the 14th at 1pm, the fast-growing Pullen Sportsman Series will go at it for 75 green-flag laps to determine the series’ first Champion. Dan McKeage holds a 33 point lead of Jerry Harrison, but as anyone who has been to a PASS Pullen Sportsman race knows it will be full of surprises. At All Star last week, it looked like McKeage was in big trouble when he pulled off early with a flat tire, but he came back through the field to stand on the podium in third, his fifth podium finish in seven races. Harrison, who has been Mr. Steady all season long, finished one spot behind McKeage at All Star. So you can be sure that McKeage knows he’s there.

And, in case you missed it, The PASS North Super Late Model Series Championship will also be settled Sunday afternoon as the fastest full-fendered cars in the Northeast slam bang there way through 150 green-flag laps to see if Mike Rowe can close son Ben’s 13 point lead, which is just six spots on the track in the PASS points system.

The show starts at 4pm on Saturday with the Modifieds and Outlaw Championships, and then come back for Part 2 on Sunday at 1 pm for the Super Late Models and Sportsman Championships, plus a special 50 lapper for Strictly Stocks. It’s going to be a great weekend of PASS style racing action as the North season comes to an end.

Fresh Faces Look for Success in
White Mountain PASS North Event

by Mike Twist
The Rowes and The Clarks Not the Only Headliners on PASS NorthTour

There are two surnames that have made plenty of headlines in PASS North racing – Rowe and Clark. Ben Rowe has won three championships, his father Mike has won some of the tour’s biggest races. Johnny Clark is a two-time titlist. His unrelated friend Cassius Clark was last year’s winningest driver.

But to do well in PASS North, you might need to bring your A-Game, but you don’t need one of those two last names. There has also been another diverse group who has visited victory lane – including rookie Joey Porciello at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, Former NASCAR Busch North/Busch East regular Kelly Moore at Riverside Speedway (NH) and PASS Veteran Richie Dearborn last weekend at Speedway 95 (ME).

There’s another group in the series that is knocking on the door of victory this year as well, and they are ready to show the world what they’ve got as the PASS North tour heads to White Mountain Motorsports Park (NH) on Saturday, September 15th.

Who these racers? They have many different backgrounds. There is a four-pack of talented rookies – Trevor Sanborn, Derek Ramstrom, Adam Bates and Stephen Berry; they have been getting better each and every week. Travis Benjamin has two consecutive top five finishes and is ready to win. Alan Tardiff is hoping to end his sophomore jinx at White Mountain. New England racing legend Dave Dion would like to score his first PASS North victory, in fact, he led laps in the last PASS race at White Mountain. Rick Martin would like to score his first victory of the season as well. The list goes on and on.

“Things have not quite gone our way yet. It’s going to one of these times and we’re going to pull a win off,” said Sanborn, who finished a close second in the most recent PASS North race at Speedway 95. “We struggled at Wiscasset a little bit. At Halifax, we were pretty good, but we didn’t end up finishing up front. Now we’ve got our game back together and we’re heading back to the front.”

Even the championship battle isn’t a lock for a Rowe or Clark. Currently, Ben Rowe leads his father Mike Rowe in the chase for the title, but Richie Dearborn is lurking in third and is now heading to three of his favorite tracks to close out the season. Dearborn has won at White Mountain before; he’s a former regular at Beech Ridge and he has led plenty of laps at All-Star Speedway before getting dealt the cards of bad luck there in the past.

Still, Dearborn isn’t worrying too much about collecting points. Actually, he really doesn’t care to hear much chatter about the championship.

“Everyone keeps talking about points, points, points, but we aren’t racing for the points,” said Dearborn. “We want to win. If we win, the points will take care of themselves. All that I want are some W’s.”
