After Rare Weekend Off, PASS North Returns To Action At Speedway 95
NAPLES, ME (June 12) – Following a trip to Canada and an off weekend, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models return to U.S. soil to compete at Speedway 95 in Hermon, ME on Sunday afternoon. The speedway known as “Maine’s Family Fun Track” will host race number eight of the 2018 season for New England’s top Super Late Model stars.
Currently, former series champions, Travis Benjamin and DJ Shaw, along with New Hampshire’s, Derek Griffith, are locked in a tight three-way battle for the PASS North title. But, sitting not far behind in fourth is Scarborough, ME’s, Garrett Hall. While still winless so far this year, Hall is quite familiar with Speedway 95, having won this event there just two years ago.
“The track is bumpy, fast and fun,” says Hall, driver of the Norm’s Used Cars Chevrolet #94. “The high side has a little more banking on it and you can keep your momentum going up there.”
Sitting just 54 markers behind the points leader, Benjamin, Hall believes this weekend at Speedway 95, and the races leading up to the 45th Annual Oxford 250 in August, are pivotal to make up ground to the front runners for the championship.
“It’s really important because the competition is so tough and there’s 10 cars that can win every week,” says Hall. “We’re hoping to turn things around and get a win on Sunday at Speedway 95.”
While much of the attention will be on the points leaders, the leading PASS winner at Speedway 95 with three wins, Ben Rowe, will also be looking to return to victory lane there for the first time in 15 years. Chad Dow, Gary Smith, and Wyatt Alexander have also filed entries as they look to join the 2018 group of PASS North race winners.
All the action gets under way on Sunday morning at Speedway 95 with rotating practice for all competing divisions from 11 AM – 1 PM, followed by heat races and features beginning at 1:30 PM for the PASS North Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds, and Street Stocks.
