Clark Earns PASS North Win #5
at the Cement Palace
Claims first Seekonk win
Seekonk MA (8/6) Johnny Clark cleared Joey Polewwarcyzk with seven to go in Saturday night's Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North 150 at Seekonk (MA) Speedway to earn his fifth series win of 2011. Derek Ramstrom raced past Pole to claim second on lap148 and Pole ended his night third.

The victory was the fifth of 2011 for the PASS North point leader, his first at Seekonk Speedway and also the first win for a PASS regular in the traveling tour's three appearances at the legendary Massachusetts oval. Seekonk weekly racers Tom Scully Jr. and David Darling shut the PASS Pros out of victory lane in 2009 and 2010.

Early on it looked like Darling might make it home team three, PASS North zero as the defending race winner took the lead from Joey Pole on lap forty two and kept Pole at bay until Pole returned the favor on lap 71 to take back the lead.

Pole was in control but there were some fast guys coming.At the 100 lap mark Clark had worked his way to second, Darling was now third and Lonnie Sommerville and Derek Ramstrom were inside the top five Still Pole was fast and he kept the field in his mirrors until the closing laps.

Clark showed what he had with fifteen to go, mounting challenges high and low, but the last of six yellow flags at lap 139 gave Clark a chance to duel Pole on the restart. Pole hung tough at the green and the pair battled side by side for four circuits until Clark made the outside move stick. Ramstrom dug hard over the closing laps to power by Pole for the runner up spot with the clenched white and checkers showing.

Thirteen cars completed the entire distance. Clark's margin of victory was 1.042 seconds. Heat race wins went to Pole, Alex Gingras and Lonnie Sommerville.

PASS North gets back on track Sunday, August 28th at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, NH.

PASS SLM Pros Seeking
Seekonk Redemption Saturday
Naples ME (8/2) The Pro All Stars Series(PASS) North super late models are back in action this weekend at Seekonk (MA) Speedway on Saturday August 6 and the teams that travel the east coast will all be looking to accomplish one thing - To see a PASS regular in the winner's circle!

PASS has made an annual appearance at Seekonk Speedway since 2009 and the speedway's home town heroes have claimed both wins. Tom Scully Jr. did the trick in 2009 and Dave Darling got the job done in 2010. The PASS pros have been plenty competitive, but its rare when the home track regulars shut them out of victory lane for two races in a row.

But there's one tough field of super late models at the Action Track of the East and there's plenty of teams fully capable of going toe to toe with the PASS North regulars. Still the lack of a win at Seekonk doesn’t sit well with the PASS boys, and you can bet that Scott Alexander, Travis Benjamin, local racer Kyle DeSouza, PASS North point leader Johnny Clark, Joey Doiron, Lee USA winner Gary Smith , Jon Dabrowski, Matt Frahm and Billy Brady will all be looking for a spot on the podium when the checkers fall at the end of 150 green flag laps.

It's a race that hard core fans of the fastest full fender racing in the east won't want to miss. Can the home track heroes defend their own turf and claim three straight? Or, will one of the touring pros finally get to celebrate in Seekonk victory lane?

Seekonk's own Late Models, Sport Trucks and Street Stocks round out the racing, set to get the green at 6:00 PM on Saturday August 6th
