PASS North Super Late Model win is third straight
at Oxford Plains Speedway for Curtis Gerry
Oxford, Maine - Curtis Gerry of Waterboro continued to shine when the money is on the line, claiming victory in the Honey Badger 150 Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model race Sunday afternoon at Oxford Plains Speedway. It was the third straight PASS Super Late Model win for Gerry at Oxford Plains Speedway, a streak that began at the 44th Annual Oxford 250 last August.

Gerry needed to mount an impressive, late-race charge in the race, which ended with a green flag stretch well in excess of 100 laps, to get by Cassius Clark of Farmington. Clark led more than 100 laps aboard the Nova Scotia-based King Racing 13 before yielding to Gerry with just four laps remaining in the 150-lap test.

Clark, who won the 50-lap Budweiser Championship Series season opener on the previous night at Oxford Plains Speedway, easily held on to claim runner-up honors. Reigning PASS North Super Late Model champion Travis Benjamin of Belfast was an early leader in the race, earning a third-place finish at the checkered flag.

DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire and Strong's Tracy Gordon were the final two racers able to complete all 150 laps, finishing fourth and fifth, respectively. One lap off the pace and rounding out the top ten were Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., Garrett Hall, Scott McDaniel, Derek Griffith and Jeff White. Nick Sweet of Barre, Vermont also led the race, and turned in the fastest lap of the race.

Defending PASS Mods champion Ben Tinker of New Gloucester prevailed in the first race of the season for the Northeast's only Pro All Stars Series-sanctioned open wheel racing class. Tinker's competition has stepped it up a bit after his dominant 2017 campaign, as runner-up Gary Shackford of Center Conway, New Hampshire was in contention for the victory.

Perhaps the biggest test for the winner was provided by third-place finisher Bruce Helmuth of Wales, who led almost half of the 40-lap race before Tinker took command. Freeport's Jariet Harrison ended up in fourth position after racing with the leaders throughout the event. Second-year PASS Mod racer Patrick Sullivan rounded out the top-five rundown.

Tyler King of Livermore Falls dominated the 40-lap special event for the Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock division. King won his heat race and started from the pole position in the main event and led every lap. It was his second straight win in the class.

Matt Dufault of Turner was the best of the rest, outgunning Lyman's Gary Babinueau in the battle for runner-up honors. Cole Watson of Naples rebounded from a first-lap spin to finish in fourth position, followed by Green's Andrew Breton.

The next Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model race is scheduled for Saturday, April 28 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, Maine. PASS Mods will also be contested. Post time is 3:00 p.m. For more information visit or call (207) 539-8865.

Big Weekend In Store for New England
Race Fans at Oxford Plains
NAPLES, ME (April 17) - For Maine race fans the wait is finally over as short track racing returns this weekend to Oxford Plains Speedway. Following a weekend off due to bad weather, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models will make their first stop of the season in Maine on Sunday for the Honey Badger Bar & Grill 150. And if that's not enough, a full slate of weekly racing at Oxford Plains Speedway will kick off on Saturday afternoon at 4 PM, featuring the Super Late Models

Memorable PASS North finishes at Oxford Plains are part of the track's legend. In the 2016 Honey Badger Bar & Grill 150, three of the biggest names in PASS history battled three-wide late in the going to determine the victor. The all-time winningest driver in PASS, Ben Rowe, prevailed over six-time series champion, Johnny Clark, and the eventual 2016 champion, DJ Shaw, in one of the most exciting finishes Maine race fans have ever seen.

But, in 2018, it is a relatively new name that is taking not only New England race fans by storm, but short trackers around the country. Hudson, NH's Derek Griffith started the PASS National Championship off by capturing a hard fought win in South Carolina at Dillon Motor Speedway. Griffith then followed it up with a dominant win in The Icebreaker at Connecticut's Thompson Speedway.

"We are really happy with how the season has started off so far," says Griffith, driver of the LCM Motorsports #12 Chevrolet. "We already have as many wins as we did last year in PASS...hopefully we can keep up the momentum."

As Griffith looks to join Cassius Clark and Ben Rowe as the only drivers to ever capture the PASS North title and PASS National Championship, another goal continues to be to win the 45th Annual Oxford 250. With a top prize of over $25,000 to win, winning the biggest single-day motorsports event in the world begins with a good run at Oxford Plains this weekend to start the season.

"The early races at Oxford are only going to help us as we get closer to the 250," says Griffith. "We seem to be getting better and better every time we go there. We would definitely love to get a win at Oxford this year."

That will not be easy though with a stacked field for Sunday afternoon's Honey Badger Bar & Grill 150, including former Oxford 250 winners, Ben Rowe, Travis Benjamin, Curtis Gerry, Glen Luce, and Wayne Helliwell, Jr. Former PASS champions, Johnny Clark, Cassius Clark, and DJ Shaw are entered as well as top series runners like Dave Farrington, Jr., Tracy Gordon, Kelly Moore, and Garrett Hall. Among the drivers entered from Canada are New Brunswick's Lonnie Sommerville and Nova Scotia's Jarrett Butcher. Currently, nearly 30 drivers are entered with more expected this weekend.

All the action gets under way on Saturday at Oxford Plains Speedway with open practice for all competing divisions, followed by local division racing at 4 PM. On Sunday, racing is slated to begin at 2 PM for the PASS North Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds, and Street Stocks.

The Honey Badger Bar & Grill is located on the grounds of Oxford Plains Speedway will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday and Sunday.
