Johnny Clark of Farmingdale Maine is the Pro All Stars Series' Rookie of the Year after dominating the category throughout much of the 2002 campaign. An exceptional group of candidates signed up for the title chase and Clark came out of the box strong and maintained a solid grip on the standings from race one on.

Clark wheeled the #54x Chevrolet Monte Carlo sponsored by DNK Select Used Cars and Clark's Cars and Parts to earn the 2002 Northern Race Tires Rookie Challenge award. Clark earned 3046 Pro All Stars Series points to tie Kenny Wright for fourth in the overall series standings.

Litchfield's' Doug Averill (#85) came on strong in the second half of 2002, earning several top five and top ten finishes as the season wound down. A fourth at Star Speedway highlighted Averill's run in the VIP Discount Auto Centers Monte Carlo. Averill came home eight in the PASS standings with 2,912 markers.

Russ Hersey (#2) also made a second half run at the points, accumulating several top ten finishes on his way to tenth in the overall title hunt with 2,880. The Swanzey NH driver drove his Brickmill Marketing Chevy into the top ten on several occasions, highlighted by a fifth place performance in the prestigious Atlantic Cat 250 at Scotia Speedworld.

Wayne Helliwell Jr. (#24) came home fourth in the final standings. The southern New Hampshire native showed a great promise early in the season and looked like a threat to Clark for the top spot but bad racing luck and a few mechanical dnfs spoiled his chances for the title. Helliwell drove Carleton Robies' S.A. Sting number 24 to 12th place with a total 2836.

Second generation driver Cassius Clark (#8) of Farmington Maine made his Pro Stock debut in the PASS series and had a very respectable season. Clark's Chapman Racing Taurus showed strength on many occasions. Clark's 11th place run at White Mountain in July was his best run and he finishes the year in 13th overall with 2,642 points.

Johnny Clark will join 2002 Pro All Stars Champion Ben Rowe and a host of other being honored at the Pro All Stars Series Banquet of Champions on Friday evening November 8th at Verillos Conference Center in Portland Maine.

Rowe Wears 2002 PASS Crown

Ben Rowe drove his Mechanical Services/Superior Image/Hi Tech Insulation Chevrolet from provisional land to a fifth place finish Sunday at Oxford Plains Speedway to secure the 2002 Pro All Stars Series Championship. Rowe topped 2001 series champ Sam Sessions in a magnificent title run that saw the Hi-Tech Racing Team earn five victories and fourteen top five finishes in the fifteen 2002 Pro All Stars Series points events.

Rowe's wins came in two states and three Canadian provinces with victories at Autodrome-Montmagny in Quebec, New Brunswick International Speedway and the Atlantic Cat 250 at Nova Scotia's Scotia Speedworld. Stateside wins were scored at White Mountain Motorsports Park and Star Speedway.

Rowe's immaculate Chevrolets are owned by Tom and Eileen Estes and prepared by the capable championship crew of Bill Hill, Rick White, Eddie Verrill, Ken Lawrence and Dave Willette work under the guidance of crew chief Brian Burgess.

2001 PASS Champion Sam Sessions gave chase for much of the season and earned four victories on his way to second in the final 2002 standings. Sessions broke though to victory lane with a vengeance in 2002 with a three race win streak at mid season. The Typar House Wrap/ AMF Custom Metal Fabrication team experienced several finishes outside of the top twenty that would end their chances for a second consecutive crown.

Chuck LaChance was the picture of consistency throughout the season and while victory lane eluded the veteran from Cushing Maine, consistent finishes earned the Fuller AutoMall Ford driver a fine third place in the final standings. Kenny Wright earned race wins at Wiscasset Raceway and Unity Raceway for Bill Chicks' Newmarket Sand and Gravel team and unofficially ties with Northern Race Tires Rookie Challenge winner Johnny Clark for the fourth spot in the standings. Clark had a strong rookie campaign in his D.N. K. Select Used Cars Monte Carlo, running as high as second in the standings for much of the season.

Prince Edward Islands' Dave Gorveatt earned the long haul award almost every week and was rewarded with a victory at Autodrome-Montmagny and sixth place in the final championship tally. Larry Gelinas ended strong to come home seventh with Rookie runner-up Doug Averill eigth, Scott Mulkern ninth and Russ Hersey tenth.

Over 130 drivers attempted to qualify for one or more of the fifteen PASS championship series events in 2002.
