The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) 400 is set to take place this weekend at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (ME). The PASS 400 weekend highlights several races with the main event being the Super Late Model 300 on Sunday afternoon. We
took a look at some of the numbers heading into this big event.
1: Number of times the PASS 300 race has been won by a non-Maine driver. Derek Ramstrom of Massachusetts was the first outsider to win the race when he did so last year, ending a nine-year run by the Pine Tree State drivers.
3: Both Mike Rowe and Johnny Clark have won this extra distance race a record three times. Mike won three of the first five runnings of the PASS 300. Clark had a three year stretch where he took down three wins in four seasons.
4: Dan McKeage has pocketed four wins in the PASS Sportsman Series during 400 weekend at Beech Ridge.
6: Cassius Clark has six finishes in the 300 inside the top 10. He’s never won the race, but has a best finish of second in 2010. He has finished fourth in the race four times.
7: Johnny Clark has seven finishes in the top 10 in this race including three wins. Clark probably remembers the first 300 where he finished 31st with engine trouble. That finish took him out of the championship battle. The 300 at Beech Ridge can do that due to the high car count. Someone’s championship dream can come to an end with a poor finish.
10: Andy Shaw is a 10-time PASS Modified winner at Beech Ridge. He’ll be looking for his 11th win this weekend.
11: There will be 11 features over the course of the weekend with races on three nights. The 300 will be the final race of the weekend on Sunday.
16: There have been 16 different winners at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in 28 PASS races. Mike Rowe is the all-time leader in wins at Beech Ridge with six wins. Half of those wins have come in the PASS 300.
32: This will be the 32nd and 33rd PASS Modified events at Beech Ridge Speedway coming into this weekend. Doug McClure leads the standings by five markers over Andy Shaw heading into the weekend. Shaw is a 10-time winner at Beech Ridge and he has 22 overall series wins. McClure has three wins this season and has been strong.
100: Over 100 cars are expected to be there at Beech Ridge this weekend across all the divisions.
119: Mike Rowe enters the 300 weekend leading Travis Benjamin by 119 points. It’s hard to imagine, but the veteran has never won the PASS North title. He won the first PASS South title back in 2006, but never in the north.
300: This is the longest race on the schedule for the PASS Super Late Model Series. This is the 11th running of the 300, which makes it the longest running event on the PASS schedule with extra distance.
$7,500: Is the winner’s share of the Super Late Model race at the 300.
Scott Alexander comes into the Beech Ridge race having won three of the last four PASS Modified races including both races at track last year during the 400 weekend.
DJ Shaw has three second-place finishes in the event. It is unclear whether or not Shaw will be competing Sunday after a disagreement with series officials at the Oxford 250.
Glen Luce will look to pocket the win and become the first driver to win both the 300 and Oxford 250 in the same year since Mike Rowe did it back in 2005.
Keep an eye on Reid Lanpher; the 2015 Beech Ridge Pro Series track champion will be looking to be one spot better than his second-place finish at the Oxford 250. The advantage goes to him as the 300 is run at his home track.
