NAPLES, ME — With a month left to go and over 50 drivers already entered, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models will get their final shot this weekend at Oxford Plains Speedway to lock up a guaranteed starting spot for the 45th Annual Oxford 250. Additionally, they will also have the opportunity the get locked into the most anticipated short track event of the year, the PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway in October.
The Budweiser Super Late Models will start off the busy weekend on Saturday night at Oxford Plains Speedway and will also feature Kids Race Car Rides and a full slate of action in Street Stocks, Bandits, Figure 8s, and Rookies. Then on Sunday afternoon, an international cast of drivers will have one last opportunity in New England to get locked into August’s 45th Annual Oxford 250 or the inaugural PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond in October.
The race for the PASS North Super Late Model championship is developing into a classic between former champions and New England upstarts. Two-time PASS North champion, DJ Shaw, leads Hudson, NH’s Derek Griffith by just 23 markers. While fellow, two-time champion and Oxford 250 winner, Travis Benjamin, and Scarborough, ME’s Garrett Hall, remain in contention for the championship.
