Scully Jr. Scores at Seekonk
Naples ME (8/17/2009)  Seekonk Speedway regular Tom Scully Jr. worked his way to the front of the field at the halfway mark of Saturday night's Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Cirelli Foods 150 and kept two of the touring series best in his mirrors to record an upset victory. At the checker it was Scully Jr. followed by Ben Rowe in second and Johnny Clark third. Derek Ramstrom and Dave Darling came home fourth and fifth in the twenty eight car field.

It was the second race in a row that home track advantage played a part in the victory. Former Unity Raceway regular Randy Turner upset the apple cart with a victory at Unity on August 2nd. Scully joins Turner and Chris Staples as a new winner in the traveling super late model road show, and the eighth different PASS feature winner in the eleven events contested to date.

Kelly Moore and Joey Pole led the field to the initial green but contact between the pair brought out the event's first caution. Moore soldiered on for a tenth place finish but Pole's night was over.

The PASS regulars battled it out with Seekonk's home town heroes throughout the race. Early on Dave Hutchins was out front, but Rowe and Clark were working their way to the front and for a time it looked like that pair might have the edge. Rowe lead briefly around the one third mark, but Seekonk speedster Ray Parent took the lead away on a restart. By the half-way point Parent had Scully Jr. on his bumper, all the way up from fifteenth on the grid. But Parent had another problem to deal with - a fourteen gallon fuel cell that wouldn't allow him to go the full 150 lap distance without a stop for fuel. So Parent peeled off for a can of Sunoco under caution and handed Scully Jr. a lead he would never give up, despite the best efforts of Johnny Clark and Rowe to take the race away from him.

As the laps wound down the green stayed out and Scully managed to pull away from the pack. Rowe took over second from Clark and chipped away at Scully Jr.'s lead but it was too little too late and the Westport Massachusetts racer, who's scored two wins and nine top tens in the Speedway's top division this season, had a PASS winner's trophy to add to his collection.

Fred Astle, Adam Bates, Rick Martin, Dave Hutchins and Kelly Moore earned fifth through tenth place finishes. Thirteen cars completed all 150 green flag laps. Ben Rowe, Kelly Moore and Derek Ramstrom each scored a heat race win.

The Pro All Stars are back in the Granite State on Sunday August 23rd for a 150 lap showdown at Canaan Fair Speedway. Practice gets underway at noon; racing goes green at 2:00 PM. PASS Mods and Sportsman share the bill with the fastest full fender race cars in the east.

Plenty of Firsts When PASS North Visits Seekonk Saturday
Naples ME (8/11/2009) The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North super late models have raced hundreds of times from Nova Scotia to Connecticut in their nine year history, but this Saturday the series will make its first appearance in the Bay State when they travel to the birthplace of the Pro Stock, Seekonk Speedway.

The first ever PASS battle at the Cement Palace will pit a collection of Seekonk's weekly competitors against the toughest touring pros in the Northeast, and it's entirely possible that the PASS regulars will be up-ended for two races in a row. Randy Turner claimed the winner's spoils at Unity Raceway two weeks ago, and home track advantage played a major role in his triumph over the likes of DJ Shaw and Ben Rowe.

Seekonk is home to a very strong field of weekly racers and they know "their"track inside out. Dave Darling #52 and Fred Astle #30 have already guaranteed themselves in the main event by virtue of the 75 lap qualifiers held earlier this season. Tom Scully Jr. #2 and Tom Scully Sr. #3 have already posted entries.

It won't be an easy task to top the PASS teams when Cirelli Foods presents the PASS 150 Saturday night.. The travelling racer teams have a knack for adapting to a new race track quickly, and they are certain to be up to the challenge. Johnny Clark leads the series to Seekonk, with three wins and nine top ten finishes in the first ten events of 2009. As the schedule heads down the home stretch, Clark is seeking his second consecutive PASS North title. Ben Rowe, Adam Bates, Richie Dearborn and Derek Ramstrom are all chasing Clark and there's still four events left to gain ground and challenge the point leader.

The Late Models, Seekonk Sport Trucks and Street Stocks will also be part of the racing action. Front gate admission for adults is set at $20.00. Green flag drops at 6 PM.
