Qualifying Format: There will be two qualifying heat races set the field for tonight’s race.
Event Schedule: Qualifying heats are scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. ET. NEMA Lites, Six Shooters, NEMA, PASS North Super Late Models, 350 Supermodifieds, Strictly Stocks and Roadrunners will all be in action.
The 150-lap PASS North feature is the fourth feature race after the NEMA Lites (20 laps), Six Shooters (20 laps) and NEMA (25 laps).
Who to Watch For: We’ll give you a few drivers to watch for including an underdog. Starting with the favorites, you have to like Joey Polewarczyk, Jr.’s chances here at Star Speedway. The New Hampshire native has had success at the track previously and is hungry for a win after some bad luck to start the season. It’s also only a matter of time until Travis Benjamin and the No. 7 team find Victory Lane once again. But for an underdog, keep an eye on Joe “The Show” Squeglia. He’s a former PASS winner at nearby Lee USA Speedway (NH), but has plenty of laps around the tight Star Speedway.
Title Fight: Glen Luce leads Ben Rowe and DJ Shaw by 25 markers heading into today’s race.
The Track: Star Speedway is a tight 1/4-mile bullring located in Epping, New Hampshire.
Weather: The skies are partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid 50s.
Next Series Race: PASS North will head north of the border to Autodrome Montmagny (QC) next Saturday, May 21.
