BIG IBG-PASS Congratulations To Mike Rowe

(Naples, ME – August 1, 2005) Everyone at PASS Racing, Inc., Series Title Sponsor Infinity Business Group, Northern Race Tire, Sunoco, and all our race event and contingency sponsors extend congratulations to Mike Rowe and the SP2 Team for their victory in the TD BankNorth 250 on Sunday July 31st , which was also Mike’s 150th feature win at Oxford Plains Speedway. It took Mike a total of 405 laps to get it done -- from a 20 lap heat, to a 20 lap consi, to the 50 lap last chance race, to the 37th starting spot in the 250, and through nine cautions to lap 241 before Mike took the lead.

250 Pix, Race Results & Reports at www.SP2motorsports.com, www.JohnnyClarkMotorsports.com, and www.Speed51.com

Johnny Clark, who ran out of tires as Mike closed in on him in the final laps, took off this morning for the Roush Racing “Gong Show” in North Carolina after finishing a disappointing second. As Johnny said, “With 10 laps to go its all so close, and then there’s Mike Rowe with fresher tires looming up behind you.”

We all send Johnny our support in North Carolina and remind him not to forget we’re going to Riverside Speedway in Groveton, NH Saturday night for the big Summerfest 2005 show.

And a big nod to Nick Nichols for coming home third in a surprise to some folks who haven’t seen him in action before. We’d love it if he could come and race with the PASS teams all the time.

The racing luck gods may have started shining on Richie Dearborn for a change. From a 30th place starting spot, Richie quietly made his way to the front, and there he was at the end chasing the top three across the line for a well-earned fourth.

To put it all in perspective, seven out of the top ten and 15 out of the top 20 finishers in the TD Banknorth 250 have raced in IBG-PASS races this year.

Two Victories by Mother Nature Lead to Fireworks

(Naples, ME -- May 10, 2005) Tom Mayberry of PASS and Bill Ryan of Oxford Plains Speedway announced today that they have had enough of the rain and took the hint that Mother Nature wanted something different. So the two promoters put their heads together and came up with a new date and an explosive show for the fans. The New England Dodge Dealers PASS 150 has been rescheduled to Sunday July 3rd as the New England Dodge Dealers Firecracker 150 as part of Oxford’s July 4th Weekend leading up to the Banknorth 250 at the end of the month.

It’s going to be one of the most intense Fourth of July holiday weekends ever at Oxford, starting with the Maine State Lottery Fireworks Night on Saturday July 2nd at 6:30 p.m, considered to be the region’s loudest and most brilliant fireworks show. It will be a full night of Oxford’s Weekly Racing Series, plus the 106.7 Bone Vertical Outlaws in a stuntbike exhibition with the fireworks shortly after dark.

Mayberry commented, “You can be sure that a number of the PASS teams will be making it a doubleheader weekend of racing against the Oxford Pro Stocks Saturday night as a tune up for Sunday. You know it’s getting close to 250 time, so the more track time you have at Oxford the better you will be for the fireworks at the Banknorth 250.”

Time trials begin at 4 p.m., followed by a full slate of PASS qualifying heats and consi(s), a PASS Modified Series feature, and feature events for the OPS Lee Auto Mall Late Model Stock, Limited Sportsman, Strictly Stock, and Mini Stock divisions. That makes it an explosive doubleheader weekend at OPS.

"We felt this was a solution that fit our schedule and the PASS schedule, while giving our fans an incredible weekend to start the exciting month of July at Oxford Plains Speedway," Ryan said. "Maine State Lottery Fireworks Night is one of the most anticipated events of our season. We'll follow it up the next afternoon with one of the major Pro Stock events of the year, and the two events are scheduled in such a way that our fans will be able to enjoy both while still following through with their plans for the holiday on Monday."

"With Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch representing the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series at the Banknorth 250, our local and regional competitors are going to want to take advantage of that
opportunity to get a leg up and take some notes that might help them win more than $25,000 later in July," Ryan said. There will now be three major Pro Stock events at OPS within a 50-day span.

The PASS teams will also be at Oxford for the Triple 50s on Saturday, June 11th.

To followup on Oxford's fantastic Fourth of July weekend or the Banknorth 250, please call the Speedway office at (207) 539-8865 or log on to www.oxfordplains.com

PASS Competitors Doing Well
At Speedweeks

(Naples, ME – February 16, 2005) Long-time PASS competitor Jay Cushman and PASS winning driver Ted Christopher had a great night at New Smyrna last night as they put the #29 Cushman Performance Ford in Victory Lane for TC’s first win in the Super Late Models during Speedweeks.

The #29 has been fast all week, but the problem was that there were never enough laps for Teddy to make his way to the front. Last night they had a simple, but elegant, solution. He qualified fifth but drew the pole in the redraw, and then he had to wait through two red flags and a series of yellows before nailing down his first SLM victory at New Smyrna.

The celebration in Victory Lane was short because Teddy had to jump into the #00 Modified for the feature. Just to show that he could do it either way, TC qualified on the pole but had to start sixth after the redraw. However, the result was the same as he took the modified feature as well for a sweep of the night’s action.

PASS Guys Win Speed51.com Awards

(Naples, ME – February 12, 2005) Johnny Clark is moving to quarterback, Ted Christopher to running back, and Norm Marx will take all the pictures.

We all know about John Madden’s annual All-Madden Team for the toughest guys in the NFL. Speed51.com’s Bob Dillner makes his annual selection of the toughest racers, especially in short track racing, for the All-Dillner Team.

Bob’s choice for starting quarterback in the 2004 All-Dillner Team is Johnny Clark of Farmingdale, ME, the 2004 PASS Series champion. According to Dillner, Johnny “has a little Terry Bradshaw (Pittsburgh Steelers great QB) in him” because he shaved off the full-beard after he won the big money DNK 250 and now has a goatee. According to Dillner, “That’s Bradshaw-esque.”

Johnny is joined on the All-Dillner Team by starting running back Ted Christopher of Plainville, CT who drives Clinton Teague’s #34 PASS Monte Carlo. According to Dillner, Ted’s “strong like the Patriot’s Corey Dillon, yet he’s got the nasty demeanor of a linebacker when he puts his game face on and that’s what makes him so good.”

Johnny and Ted were not the only recipients of awards from Speed51.com. In addition to the All-Dillner Team, the annual “51’s” is a national contest voted on by all the Speed51.com fans. Fans get to vote for everything from the best story of the year, to the best short-track driver – Ted Christopher, who beat WOO King Steve Kinser by three votes, to the most improved, the best finish, etc.

By a very wide margin among the voters, The “51’s Photo of the Year” went to our very own webmaster and motorsports photographer extraordinaire Norm Marx for his picture of PASS regular Walt Hammond’s wild ride up the fence at Unity last year that just about took him out of the park during the DNK 250.     Full 51 Awards article at

(Naples, ME - January 7, 2005)
The 2004 PASS champion Johnny Clark of Farmingdale, ME was named Touring Series Driver of the Year at the Northeast Motorsports Expo in Augusta, ME tonight.

Johnny joins a distinguished roster of the best-of-the-best in the Northeast. He edged out 2002 and 2003 winner Andy Santerre, who almost made it a "three-peat" like he did on the track. Johnny is now the second PASS champion to be chosen Touring Series Driver of the Year, following 2000 winner Ben Rowe.

He joins some of the greatest names in racing in the Northeast, from Joe Bessey in 1992 and Ricky Craven in '93 to Dale Shaw, Dave Dion, Kelly Moore, two-time winner in '97 and '98 Mike Stefanik, Brad Leighton, Mike Olsen, Rowe, as well as two-time winner Santerre. Over 30 members of the motorsports press corp in the Northeast cast ballots for the Driver of the Year Award.

To say that Johnny was surprised when presented with the trophy would be an understatement. However, he quickly rose to the occasion and thanked his crew chief brother Bobby, the entire #54 team, sponsors DNK Select Used Cars and Clark's Cars and Parts, the family business that makes a lot of it happen, and all the other associate sponsors. Johnny said, "I would like to thank the members of the media for this award, and I would like to thank everyone from PASS, the other race teams, and especially the fans who make this the best touring series in the Northeast."
