Sessions Is The Big Dawg

2001 Pro All Stars Champion Sam Sessions went winless throughout the 2003 PASS points season, but he made up for it in grand style Monday when he took the lead from Dave Gorveatt on lap 384 for a $100,00.00 pay day in the DNK Select Used Cars Big Dawg Challenge at Wiscasset (ME) Raceway. Gorveatt came home second with Scott Robbins third and Donnie Whitten fourth, the last car on the lead lap. Richie Dearborn persevered for fifth, the first car one lap down.

Thirty-nine of the fastest Pro Stocks in the eastern United States and Canada came down to the green with Scott Chubbuck and Johnny Clark leading the way. Clark got the jump from the outside row to take the lead with Chubbuck second, Cassius Clarke third, Sam Sessions fourth and Ben Rowe fifth. The caution flew on lap fifteen for Jim McCallum and Jarod Robie. Both cars were able to return and on the restart and Clark once again led the field with Chuubbuck right on his rear bumper. The pair began to work their way through lapped traffic at the thirty-seven lap mark and a lap forty nine spin by Stan Meserve drew a caution, saving a number of strong cars from going a lap down, but Freddy Query lost one at the line and restarted second. Clark continued to lead at lap fifty and Chubbuck, Sessions, Billy Whorff, Cassius Clark Scott Fraser Tracy Gordon, Travis Benjamin Mike Rowe and Larry Gelinas were the early top ten.

Sessions moved up to the second spot at lap sixty-four and the caution flew on lap sixty-six for Alan Wilson’s spin. Clark retained the point on the restart with Sessions second and Cassius Clark past Chubbuck for third. Sessions made his way to the top spot on lap eight-eight, driving under Clark for the spot and bringing Cassius Clark and Chubbuck with him. By the time Johnny Clark could pull down he found himself freight-trained to eighth. The first round of pit stops for the front runners came at lap ninety-two with Johnny Clark, Ben Rowe, Larry Gelinas and Mike Rowe in for tires. Leader Sessions followed a lap later, handing the top spot to Cassius Clark with Chubbuck, Gordon, Travis Benjamin and Fraser rounding out the top five. Chubbuck took the top spot away from Clark on the restart with Tracey Gordon third, Benjamin fourth and Scott Fraser fifth at lap one hundred Scott Mulkern, Dave Gorveatt, Jeff Taylor, Kenny Wright and Bill Penfold completed the top ten. Thirty-Six of the original thirty-nine starters were still on the speedway at lap one hundred. Clark reclaimed the top spot from Chubbuck and Gordon joined the pair in a nose-to-tail battle. Fraser joined the fray as the foursome worked their way through lapped traffic, Chubbuck took another turn at the front on lap one twenty four and open up a five car length margin over Clark and Gordon. At lap 150 the drivers who made early tire stops were making their presence known as Ben Rowe was up to seventh and Johnny Clark was riding in the eleventh spot. At lap one fifty Chubbuck was out front with Gordon now second, Clark third Fraser fourth and Benjamin fifth. Dave Gorveatt, Ben Rowe, Travis Kheil, Scott Mulkern and Jeff Taylor rounded out the top ten.

Stan Meserve and Jim McCallum brought out the caution at lap 186 set up a run to the half-way break. Chubbuck took off in the lead with Gordon second, Clark third, and 2003 PASS Champion Ben Rowe rumbling up to fourth. Rowe moved under Cassius Clark for third on lap 192. The field took a 15-minute mandatory break at lap 200 and seventeen cars remained on the lead lap: Scott Chubbuck, Tracy Gordon, Ben Rowe, Cassius Clark, Scott Fraser, Dave Gorveatt, Johnny Clark, Bill Whorff, Sam Sessions, Scott Mulkern, John Flemming, Jeff Taylor, John Phippen, Donnie Whitten, Dale Shaw , Scott Robbins and Travis Benjamin.Thirty-two of the thirty-nine original starters answered the call for the final 200 lap shoot-out.

Chubbuck led at the green but Ben Rowe got the best of Gordon for second. Cassius Clark ran fourth with Scott Fraser fifth and early leader Johnny Clark seventh. Rowe looked low under Chuck on lap 222 but lapped traffic opened up for the pair and Chubbuck maintained the point. The pair ran in tandem through lapped traffic, Rowe looking for a slip by Chubbuck to take the lead. Johnny Clark, Cassius Clark, Sam Sessions and Dale Shaw all took adavantage of a lap 248 caution to pit for fuel and tires.

The top five was now comprised of Chubbuck, Rowe, Gordon, Fraser and John Phippen.

Johnny Clark was the victim of a lap 254 altercation that sent him to the back of the lead lap.

The complexion of the race changed dramatically on lap 256 when Cassius Clark lost a rear wheel and Johnny Clark launched the #54 over the wheel in turn two, and the leaders stacked up coming to the caution. Chubbuck sustained body damage and maintained the lead but Rowe had to pit for repairs, so Fraser moved to second with John Phippen third, Dave Gorveatt fourth and Donnie Whitten fifth. Chubbuck and Fraser battled side by side on the restart but Chubbuck’s body damage was sending smoke out from under the 29. Fraser took the lead on lap 259 and set sail, opening up a half-straightaway lead at lap 270. Mike Rowe spun on lap 274, giving Chubbuck the opportunity to pit for repairs and tires. Benjamin, Rowe, Whitten, Shaw and Gorveatt all took advantage of the caution to make stops as well,

Fraser led the field to the restart with Phippen second, Jeff Taylor third, Gordon fourth and Bill Whorff fifth. Fraser and Phippen took advantage of a lap 291 caution to make their stops, handing the lead to Jeff Taylor. Gordon rode second with Bill Whorff third, Scott Robbins fourth and Dave Gorveatt fifth. A caution for debris at the three-quarter mark and Taylor gave up the lead for four tires and fuel. Chubbuck also stopped for additional repairs. Gordon took over the point with Whorff second, Robbins third, Whitten charging back to fourth and Sessions fifth. Whittens’ charge came to a halt on lap 301 after the underdog racer was spun off turn three. Gordon led the field to the green but Bill Whorff made the move under Gordon to take over the top spot. Ben Rowe’s shot at the big prize ended on lap 309, the victim of mechanical problems. Things happened fast on lap 315 when both Whorff and Gordon slowed, both with flat tires. That gave Dale Shaw the lead for the first time and Shaw quickly took off to a straightaway lead over Robbins, Phippen Taylor and Gorveatt.

A lap 343 caution brought Shaw back to the field with Robbins second, Phippen third and a charging Scott Chubbuck all the way up to fourth. Gorveatt was now fifth with Whitten back in the battle in sixth and Taylor the final car on the lead lap in seventh after pitting on the caution. Shaw was out front once again on the restart but Chubbuck was on a mission, quickly moving into second. John Phippen saw a great day go south after contact sent him off turn three, setting up a crucial restart for Shaw with Chubbuck alongside. Shaw held the advantage on the start and Chubbuck gave chase, looking inside then outside for a way around. Gorveatt raced his way up to third and a charging Jeff Taylor was up to fourth with Sessions fifth. Chuck looked under Shaw for the next thirty laps, but the pair made contact on lap 384, sending Shaw to the rear and Chubbuck off on the wrecker. Gorveatt inherited the lead with Jeff Taylor now second, Sessions third and Whiten fourth. Scott Robbins lined up fifth with Shaw now sixth, the last car on the lead lap. Sessions slipped by Taylor for second on the restart but couldn’t get by Gorveatt.

A quick caution lined up the six lead lap cars at the head of the pack and Whitten rolled the dice, pitting for right side tires. It was a sixteen lap shoot-out for the twenty remaining Big Dawgs with Gorveatt and Sessions side by side. Sessions made his move on the restart and took over the top spot from Gorveatt. But Shaw and Taylor came together behind the leaders on lap 392, setting up another battle royal for the big win. Sessions kept his mount out front on the restart and Gorveatt gave chase but Sud’n Sam wouldn’t be denied, crossing the stripe five car lengths ahead of Gorveatt for the $100,000.00 payday.

Big Dawg Challenge Postponed Until Columbus Day

The rains came to Wiscasset Raceway Sunday just as the field was rolling onto the track, neccesitating postponement of the DNK Select Big Dawg Challenge until Monday, October 13th. Grandstands will open at with pre-race ceremonies scheduled for Noon and the start of the Big Dawg Challenge at 12:30.                     .

The rains held off long enough for the preliminaries and Wayne Helliwell and John Fleming brought the “B” main down to the green. The “last chance” qualifier got off to a rough start when Doug White’s 45 got into the tires in turn one, landing upside down on the race track, just as Bub Bilodeau slid off of turn four in Brock Gerry’s 44. Both drivers were unhurt and Bilodeau returned for the restart.
