NAPLES, ME – After a weekend that saw three drivers punch their tickets to the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250, a full field of Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models will be back on track this weekend for the Southern Maine Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.
Hermon, ME’s Mike Hopkins leads the championship standings by just five points over 2014 PASS North champion, DJ Shaw, who won the most recent series event at Beech Ridge earlier this year. But, two drivers with a lot of experience at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway could be the favorites on Saturday night. Hometown hero Garrett Hall is the only driver to win more than one PASS North Super Late Model event in 2016. And, defending PASS National Champion, Joey Doiron, has gone to victory lane at Beech Ridge with the series in recent years.
After enduring a tough start to the 2016 season, which saw Doiron involved in crashes at Hickory Motor Speedway and Star Speedway, Doiron and the JBJ Machine Shop team decided to step back and concentrate their efforts on events at Beech Ridge and Oxford. Since then, Doiron has won the last two weekly events at Beech Ridge and enters Saturday night’s Southern Maine Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep 150 as the track’s hottest driver.
“I think we’ve made gains as far as the weekly stuff goes,” says Doiron. “I feel like we always have a decent shot every time PASS goes to Beech Ridge, especially with how we’ve ran the last two weeks.”
Another strong field is expected for Saturday night’s action at Beech Ridge Motor with all the action getting under way with rotating practice for all competing divisions starting at 3 PM and racing for the Southern Maine Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep 150 beginning at 7 PM.
