Rowe Feted at PASS Banquet

An upbeat crowd of drivers, crewmembers, sponsors and fans converged on the Augusta Civic Center Saturday night for the 3rd Annual Pro All Stars Series Banquet of Champions.

PASS Racing Inc. President and promoter Tom Mayberry kicked off the evening, thanking the race teams and sponsors for their support in 2003 and touching upon the series' plans for their fourth campaign under his tutelage. Although the final 2004 schedule is still receiving a few minor finishing touches, Mayberry did announce the return of PASS to Lee USA Speedway for two 150- lap events slated for May 16th and September 5th and the PASS sanctioned DNK Select 250, a $25,000.00 to win/$2,000 to start special event at Maine's Unity Raceway on June 12th and 13th. Mayberry then presented his special awards for 2003. Richie Dearborn accepted the Sportsmanship on behalf of his Dearborn Racing team and Cassius Clark was chosen for the dubious honor of Hard Luck Driver of the Year. Northern Race Tires and PASS Webmaster/Photographer Norm Marx shared the Commitment to Excellence Award, and Scott Mulkern accepted the Achievement Award. Finally, John and Charlie Holland of New England Racing Fuels accepted the Presidents' Award for their dedication and commitment to the Pro All Stars Series.

Ben Rowe Captures Second PASS Title

Ben Rowe capped what would have to be considered a dream season Sunday at Thompson (CT) Speedway, his second place finish more than enough to claim his second consecutive Pro All Star Series Championship. Rowe compiled a remarkable record of eight wins, four-second place finishes and one third in fifteen starts with only one race in the DNF column. Rowe has been quick to credit his race team, owned by Tom and Eileen Estes of New Gloucester Maine, for his success. His Brian Burgess led Mechanical Services/Superior Image Embroidery/ Hi-Tech Insulation crew provided Rowe with a meticulously prepared race car week in and week out. Watching Rowe extract the best from the Estes’ double zero each race, one soon learns that this talented driver is certainly an equal part of the teams' for success.

Johnny Clark and his D.N.K. Select/Clark’s Cars and Parts race team pulled their way up in the point standings Sunday at Thompson, his fourth place finish strong enough to overtake Dale Shaw for second in the points chase. Shaw had a tough outing with contact sending him for a ride on two occasions both the nose and tail of his American Air Systems/G.O.D. Dodge were severely damaged. Still he and his crew soldiered on, making countless pit stops for repairs before finally calling it quits. Shaw finished sixteenth, 57 laps in arrears, and completes the season third in the title chase.

2001 PASS Champ Sam Sessions maintained fourth spot in the final standings with an eight place run at Thompson, despite a practice crash that necessitated a complete snout rebuild in the pit area. Sessions’ Sud’n Racing team spent hours straightening the severely bent race car and their efforts paid off. Scott Mulkern earned the fifth spot in the standings, moving past Scott Chubbuck who suffered a grinding turn one wreck early in the event to finish 40th. Mulkern looked to be well on his way to victory lane before his fuel cell ran dry late in the race. With a forty car field starting, Chubbucks’ last place run dropped him from fifth to eighth in the standings with Larry Gelinas, Richie Dearborn Dearborn and Mike Rowe all picking up spots to finish the points chase in sixth, seventh and ninth, respectively.

Dave Gorveatt was a victim of the recent hurricane in the Maritimes and simply had too much property damage at home to make the Octoberfest 200. Gorveatt’s no show dropped him from eighth to twelfth in the points. 2003 PASS/Northern Race Tires Rookie of the Year Travis Kheil moved up the ladder to tenth with Cassius Clark eleventh.

Travis Khiel is PASS 2003 Rookie of the Year

Denmark Maine’s Travis Khiel received the PASS/Northern Race Tires Rookie Challenge award Saturday November 29th at the PASS Banquet of Champions at the Augusta Civic Center in Augusta, ME.

Travis competed in all fifteen of the 2003 PASS-sanctioned race events and finished tenth in the final points standings with one top five, four top ten and nine top fifteen finishes. His best results of the season came in extra distance events with a strong second place finish at Wiscasset Raceway in the Coastal 200 and a seventh place run at Thompson International Speedway’s Octoberfest 200 highlighting his rookie campaign.

Khiel’s family owned Kheil Logging/Frechette Tire/Beach Cliff Sardines race team dominated the rookie standings, earning thirteen rookie of the race awards. Khiel received seventeen American Racer race tires from Northern Race tires for their efforts, valued at over $2,175.00.
