NAPLES, ME (October 9) – With another change of season upon us, so it is for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models and PASS Modifieds this Saturday afternoon at Oxford Plains Speedway. It is part of an even bigger weekend at Oxford Plains that will see the Oxford Acceleration Series, Armageddon Of Destruction, and an 80 car, pumpkin-dodging Enduro on Sunday afternoon.
While the PASS Modifieds will settle their season on Saturday, the championship fight for New England’s most prominent Super Late Models has come down to three serious contenders. While former champion, Ben Rowe, along with Garrett Hall, both have mathematical shots at the title, without a major shakeup, it’s down to former champions, DJ Shaw or Travis Benjamin, and Derek Griffith.
After stumbling at Beech Ridge, Shaw bounced back with a podium finish at Thunder Road to take a 26 point led over Benjamin and stretch his advantage to 99 over Griffith. But, with a big field of cars expected at Oxford Plains once again, an early problem for the leaders could rearrange the standings, or even bring Hall and Rowe back into play heading into the PASS North Championship Finale at Seekonk on October 27.
In addition to the championship combatants, former Oxford 250 winners, Curtis Gerry and Mike Rowe, will all be among the favorites to challenge for the win on Saturday afternoon at Oxford Plains. Former 6-Time PASS North champion, Johnny Clark, will be in the field, along with PASS North regulars Reid Lanpher and Tracy Gordon. Scott McDaniel looks to build on a strong run in the Oxford 250 and will be joined by Maine speedsters Scott Moore, Calvin Rose, Jr., Alan Tardiff, Mike Hopkins, Ryan Robbins, Tim and TJ Brackett, Adam Polvinen, Bryce Mains, Shawn Martin and New Hampshire’s, Dan Winter.
All the action gets under way on Saturday afternoon at Oxford Plains Speedway with gates opening at 9 AM, practice from 11 AM to 1:30 PM, and racing for the PASS North Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds, Street Stocks, and Bandits beginning at 2 PM.
