PASS North: Mulkern Masters Oxford
Johnny Clark Claims his 6th PASS North Title
Oxford, ME (10/15)  -  Scott Mulkern roared from the back of a 34 car field to claim the lead and the win in Saturday's Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North 150 at Oxford (ME) Plains Speedway. Travis Benjamin led much of the way but had to settle for the runner up spot, and DJ Shaw raced home third in the PASS North season finale, cut short at lap 118 due to rain.

Joey Pole and Brian Hoar led the field to the green and Pole jumped out front early. Hoar took over from laps 29 through 70 but Benjamin was rumbling up through the field and he wrestled the lead away from Hoar on lap 70.

At the half way mark it was Benjamin, Hoar, Joey Doiron, Shaw and Mulkern in the top five and it was clear that Mulkern was on a mission, gaining 20 spots in the first 75 laps. He was racing second by lap 100 and out front on lap 102 but Benjamin battled back, reclaiming the lead until Mulkern made his way past Benjamin on the bottom for good on lap 112. The showers came six laps later and despite every effort to get the race back under way, the persistent rains forced series officials to call it a race on lap 118.

25 of the 34 starters were scored on the lead lap; six minor cautions slowed the action. Mulkern's margin of victory was .816 seconds.

41 teams attempted to make the 34 car starting field. DJ Shaw, Brian Hoar, and Joey Pole won the qualifiers; Mulkern won the consolation round.

Johnny Clark raced home fourth to cap off a remarkable season that saw the defending series champ earn 7 wins and 13 Top 5 finishes in fourteen starts. The result was more than enough to give Clark and his team a sixth PASS North title, his fourth in a row. Lonnie Sommerville overcame a qualifying race parts failure to finish seventh, enough to earn second in the standings and Ben Rowe's twelfth place run kept the four time PASS North champion third in the final tally.

PASS North will celebrate the 2011 season on Friday evening, November 4 at the Howard Johnson's Convention Center in Portland, Maine. All the details can be found HERE .

PASS Oxford Winners
PASS Champs wrap up their title runs in style with feature wins
Oxford ME (10/15) It was Champions Day at Oxford Plains Speedway for all three Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North racing series Saturday, and Andy Shaw (PASS Mods) and Carey Martin (PASS Sportsman) both claimed their respective divisions championship in style by winning their season finales.

For Shaw it was a fitting end to a dominant season. The Center Conway NH racer's 2011 record is enviable; 10 starts, 7 wins and 9 top five finishes kept Shaw on top of the standings all season long, and moved him to the top of the PASS Mod record book as the division's winning-est driver.

Ron Henry looked like he had a shot at victory in the early going. Henry took off and left the field in his dust with Dana Reed and Travis Buzzell giving chase. But Shaw was on the move, passing his Uncle Dale for 4th on lap 15, Buzzell for 3rd on lap 18 and on lap 21 the defending series champ was second. Three laps later he took over the top spot and set sail. It was Shaw by a straightaway at the checkers with Ron Henry in the runner up spot and Dana Reed third.

Carey Martin carried a slim five point lead in the PASS Sportsman standings to the season finale, and the 2009 series champ did exactly what he need to do. Martin won his heat race and dominated the 75 lap feature to put an exclamation point on his second PASS title. Craig Smith took the second spot from Clyde Hennessy with 11 to go; Frank Wear and Rusty Poland rounded out the top five.

The Wildcat/Strictly Stock fifty lap Open was a wild affair dominated by Leeds racer Kurt Hewins. Corey Morgan ran up front all day and raced home second with Chris Warming third.

All three PASS North touring series will celebrate the season on Friday evening November 4 at the Howard Johnson's Convention Center in Portland Maine. Drivers, team members, sponsors and fans are all welcome to join in the festivities. All the details and a printable ticket order form HERE.
