Sanborn Seals the Deal
NAPLES ME (8/31) Trevor Sanborn found a way to
get by team mate Travis Benjamin on lap 83 of Saturday
nights Pro All Stars Series (PASS) super late model
feature at Groveton NH’s Riverside Speedway, earning his
first career PASS North win. Sanborn and Benjamin gave
the Richard Moody Racing team a sweep of the top two
spots. Richie Dearborn crossed the line third.
Sanborn has been fast all season long, leading 262 laps
prior to the Summerfest 150. But despite several podium
finishes, the two time PASS South race winner had been
unable to drive under the checkers first in the northern
series until Saturday night.
Ben Rowe picked up
six spots from the grid to finish fourth; 2009
Summerfest 150 winner Cassius Clark was fifth. Donnie
Whitten had another solid run in sixth, while point
leader Johnny Clark finished outside of the top five for
just the second time in 2010 with a seventh place
result. Scott Chubbuck, Gary Drew and Adam Bates raced
home eighth, ninth and tenth.
Gary Drew brought
the field down to the green and held the lead early but
the field was anxious to pick up the pace and Travis
Benjamin was first to make the move past Drew on lap 31.
Benjamin was having a strong run in a stout race car,
opening up a big lead over his team mate Sanborn,
Cassius Clark, Drew, and Chubbuck at the crossed flags.
The event’s only caution flag flew on lap eighty,
bringing Benjamin back to Sanborn, Clark and Dearborn.
Sanborn knew that the caution might be his only
opportunity to challenge Benjamin and he made his move
when the green flew. The pair raced side by side for
several laps before Sanborn took over the lead for good.
Benjamin dogged the leader for the final 70-plus laps,
and Dearborn made a charge on Benjamin in the late going
but the top three remained the same at the checkers.
Sanborn joins Bill Rodgers as the second first time
PASS North super late model race winner of 2010.
Ten cars finished all 150 green flag laps in a quick,
nearly caution free race that took just 40 minutes from
green to checker. Johnny Clark and Gary Drew each earned
a qualifying race win.
The PASS North Super Late
Models take a weekend off before they travel to Seekonk
Speedway in Seekonk, MA on Saturday August 14. PASS
South gets back in gear next weekend, August 7th, at
Newport (TN) Speedway for the Daniel Boone Classic.

PASS Mod Win Number
for Shaw at Riverside
Naples ME (8/1) Andy Shaw came back strong after
an early race tangle to pass Scott McDaniel on a lap 25
restart and win his third Pro All Stars Series (PASS)
Mod feature of 2010 at Groveton New Hampshire’s
Riverside Speedway. The win was Shaw’s eighth feauture
victory in the ultracompetitive PASS open wheel
The 40 lap go got off to a rough start
with a pair of cautions that involved several of the
front runners including Mike Mayberry, Wayne Whitten
Jr., Kevin Douglass and Shaw. After a pair of restarts a
race finally broke out with Rich Ferreira out front.
Scott McDaniel charged past Alan Wilson for second and
claimed the lead from Ferreira on lap six. McDaniel had
the look of a winner as he took off from the pack,
building up a sizeable lead over Wayne Whitten Jr.
Meanwhile Shaw was rumbling through the field after his
lap four dustup joining a great scrap for second with
Whitten, Wilson, and Ferreira.
By lap 23 second
place was Shaw’s and he set sail to try and chase down
McDaniel. McDaniel had done his best to run away from
the rest of the field, building up a huge lead as the
battle for position continued behind him.
25 saw a caution fly for Mike Mayberry’s excursion off
of turn two and McDaniel’s once insurmountable lead
evaporated. It was all Shaw on the restart, although
McDaniel did his best to keep the point leader at bay.
McDaniel tried in vain to find a way back around Shaw
for 15 laps but there was no denying Shaw.
Whitten Jr. earned the final podium position with Alan
Wilson fourth and Jon Brill fifth. Ferreira and Whitten
Jr. were winners in the heat races.
