Travis Benjamin Prevails in
PASS North Super Late Model
Thriller at Star Speedway
Epping, NH - Defending Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model champion Travis Benjamin of Belfast, Maine nailed down his first race victory of the season, prevailing in a close battle versus Reid Lanpher to earn top honors in Saturday night's Support 50 Legs 150 at Star Speedway in Epping, New Hampshire.

Benjamin's paint-swapping battle with Lanpher was just the final entertaining duel on the racy quarter-mile oval for the lead. The Weirs GMC-sponsored racer turned back other challengers during the 150-lapper, most notably from Johnny Clark and Joe Squeglia, Jr.

Clark, a six-time PASS North Super Late Model champion, looked like he had a shot at ending his recent dry spell as he swapped the early lead in the race. Squeglia, a proven winner in many stock car classes at Star Speedway, battled Clark for the lead and was still racing with the top-five when he was forced out of the event.

A long, paint-swapping battle for supremacy in the closing laps wildly entertained observers. Lanpher managed to inch ahead of Benjamin briefly while racing in the outside groove several times, but in the end the veteran Petit Motorsports driver prevailed.

Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, New Hampshire made an impressive charge into third position late in the race. Polewarczyk came out on top after racing hard against Derek Ramstrom of Worcester, Massachusetts.

Clark crossed the finish line in fifth position. Two-time PASS North Super Late Model champion DJ Shaw, Derek Griffith, John Peters, six-time champ Ben Rowe and Glen Luce rounded out the top ten.

The next PASS North Super Late Model event is scheduled for Sunday, May 20 at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine. For more information, call (207) 539-8865.

Support 50 Legs 150 Up Next
For PASS North At Star Speedway
NAPLES, ME (May 1) - A busy stretch for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models continues this Saturday night at New Hampshire's Star Speedway, and they will be racing for more than just a checkered flag. For the third year in a row, the Support 50 Legs 150 will help raise awareness for a cause affecting far too many Americans. Steve Chamberland's 50 Legs organization helps provide amputees with the necessary care and prosthetics, that they could not otherwise afford, needed to live a happier and healthier life.

So far this season, Derek Griffth and Curtis Gerry have dominated the early going. Griffith captured the checkered flag in the season opener at Thompson Speedway, while Gerry has been on a tear winning at Oxford Plains and at Beech Ridge. The PASS North standings are tight, with former series champions, DJ Shaw and Travis Benjamin, separated by just 10 points, while Griffith, Reid Lanpher, Garrett Hall, and Glen Luce sit not far behind.

While he did win his second PASS North championship just two years ago, Shaw is hungry to get back to victory lane. Shaw's last PASS win came almost a year ago at Thunder Road and the veteran from Center Conway, NH hopes the ingredients will be right to score another win this weekend in his home state.

"I think our season hasn't been the best so far, we've had some struggles, but we've gotten some decent finishes and we're working long nights in the shop in an effort to get better," says Shaw.

Shaw's only win at Star came in 2014 and helped propel him to his first PASS North Super Late Model title. While he has won there in the past, Star is admittedly not one of his best tracks. But, he believes Star might provide him with a good chance to shine and pad his point lead.

"Heading to Star we have some new ideas to try and hopefully we can get back on track to where we were when we won there a few years ago," said Shaw. "I've had mixed results there and feel it's actually one of my weakest tracks as a driver. If we can get the car to my liking and have a good run on Saturday, it would be great to keep our season headed in the right direction."

All the action gets under way on Friday at Star Speedway with rotating practice for all competing divisions from 5 - 9 PM. On Saturday, practice will begin at 2:30 PM with heat races slated to begin at 5 PM, followed by features for the PASS North Super Late Models, 350 Supers, Strictlys, Six Shooters and Roadrunners.

PASS Super Late Model entry forms for upcoming events at Star Speedway, Oxford Plains Speedway, Concord Speedway, Thunder Road International Speedbowl, Petty International Raceway, and Speedway 95, along with the 45th Annual Oxford 250, can be found at

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway and PASS South's Easter Bunny 150 and the inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway in October.
