Eddie MacDonald opened last season’s PASS schedule with a victory at Thompson Motorsports Park’s Icebreaker and hopes to repeat that performance this Sunday, April 8 on the famed Thompson speedway. Eddie Mac will pilot the Dave Lemieux owned Pro Stock in as many as nine events with his sights set on an Icebreaker win.

“Racing at Thompson is always fun and you couldn’t ask for anything better than starting the season off competing in the Icebreaker,” said the Rowley, Mass. veteran racer. “Everyone is excited to get going this season and we have the car ready to go so it should be a lot of fun. EXIT Realty Beatrice Associates will be our main sponsor for this race and we are thankful to Derek Beatrice for all his help.
