PASS SUPER LATE MODELS AND PASS MODS AT RIVERSIDE SPEEDWAY, GROVETON, NH ON FRIDAY, JULY 24, 2020
Groveton, NH – Johnny Clark reminded everyone in attendance Friday night at Riverside Speedway why he is a six time champion as he dominated the Pro all Stars Series first visit to the 1/4 mile since 2018. Clark, who has not been first to the checkers since 2016, fended off challenges from several drivers but was never seriously challenged in the 150 lap tilt. “It’s been a long time since I have had a car that good,” he exclaimed in victory lane, “it was fun, but there was oil or something on the track those last few laps and we almost slipped and gave it away.”
As dominating as Clark was leading the entire 150 lap contest, it wasn’t as easy as it looked. “We made wholesale changes after the first practice, and it was just terrible. I knew, we all knew after the second practice we had to put it back. It was not easy, there were a lot of changes. I’m glad we did!”
Sweet Triples Up with PASS Holiday Win at White Mountain
Marshall Snatches Victory in Foley Late Model 100
N. Woodstock, NH — Barre, VT’s Nick Sweet continued his torrid start to the 2020 Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model season by dominating down the stretch for the win in the Foley Oil & Propane 150 at N. Woodstock, NH’s White Mountain Motorsports Park on Friday, July 3. Sweet got the break over multi-time PASS champion Ben Rowe on a lap-66 restart and was never headed from there on the way to his third win of the year in front of the largest White Mountain crowd of the season.
Sweet started 11th in and steadily worked his way through the field early on. Farmington, ME’s Johnny Clark led the first 27 laps from the pole, but during the first caution for an Austin Teras spin, Clark suddenly headed down pit road. While he returned to the track in time for the restart, Clark would retire from the event during the next caution four laps later with apparent mechanical problems.
Eddie MacDonald Runs Fifth in PASS Race at OPS
Eddie MacDonald posted a solid fifth place finish in the Coastal Auto Parts 150 Super Late Model race at Oxford Plains Speedway, Maine on Sunday. The Hancock Electric/Grimm Construction Chevy owned by Freddie Peterson raced for the first time this season with MacDonald somewhat pleased with the result.
“Obviously you always want to run better but after the practice day on Saturday, we made a ton of changes and they almost paid off,” said Eddie Mac after the race. “We were real slow on Saturday so Rollie (LaChance-crew chief) and the crew made a bunch of adjustments and by the end of practice Sunday morning we felt we had a pretty good car.”

Worst to First, Griffith Prevails!
North Woodstock NH – Twenty-nine cars took the green flag for round two of the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model 2020 season at White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) on a hot, sweltering day with temperatures in the mid to high 80’s. Starting dead last in the field was the familiar 12G of Derek Griffith. 150 grueling laps later, Griffith pulled off the very rare worst-to-first accomplishment to take home the checkers on the high banked oval. Chasing him across the line was Tamworth’s Jeremy Davis and teenager Gabe Brown to fill out the podium. Griffith was understandably pleased with the result.
