NAPLES, ME (July 26) – For the only time in 2019, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models and PASS Modifieds will have their lone mid-week show of the year this coming Tuesday night at Star Speedway in Epping, NH. The special 200-lapper will be the penultimate race of the "Road To The Oxford 250" program which offers top finishers a guaranteed spot for the biggest Super Late Model race in the country coming up at Oxford Plains in late August.
Following Derek Griffith's win at White Mountain Motorsports Park last weekend, the race for the PASS North title has again tightened. While Center Conway, NH's DJ Saw continues to lead the standings, the gap between the top six in points has shrunk to less than 100 markers. And, Shaw now leads Garrett Hall by just five points heading to Tuesday night at Star.
"It's important for us to get back to victory lane because we have had a couple of bad finishes, mixed together with some strong runs from the 12 [Griffith], 40 [Sweet], and 94 [Hall] and the points have really tightened up," says Shaw.
The 3-Time PASS North champion is excited to return to Star Speedway on Tuesday night. Shaw has won twice there, including earlier this year.
"I'm looking forward to the mid-week show at Star, it's something different for us and kind of gets us in an extra race next week, which is always fun," said Shaw, who drives the Precision JLM/HK Powersports/Gomarlos Supermarket Ford Mustang #60.
Among others who are currently pre-entered for Tuesday night's 200 lapper are former Star Speedway winners, Travis Benjamin, Johnny Clark, Joey Polewarcyzk, Derek Ramstrom, and Ben Rowe. Granite State favorites Gabe Brown, Derek Griffith, Jimmy Renfrew, Jr., and Joe Sqeuglia are also entered, along with Maine racers like Garrett Hall and Ivan Kaffell. Vermont's Bobby Therrien should be for a threat for the win, while Ontario's JP Josiasse will make his first North start of the season, along with John Peters.
All the action gets under way on Tuesday at Star Speedway with practice starting at 1 PM, heat races at 5:45 PM, followed by main events for the PASS North Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds, North East Mini Stock Tour, and Street Stock Showdown Series.
