PASS Supers Returning to Lee After Four-Year Hiatus

This weekend “New Hampshire’s Center of Speed,” Lee USA Speedway, opens its gates for the first time in 2021, with Speed51.TV on hand this Sunday for the return of two of New England’s premier short track sanctioning bodies to the 3/8-mile oval.

 

For the first time since 2017, the Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models return to Lee, with 150 laps of competition ahead of the field.

Johnny Clark currently leads the points in the PASS North title hunt, with the Maine driver continuing his quest for seven championships and looking for his first career at Lee since 2009. Fellow Mainer and multi-time PASS champion Ben Rowe is looking for his first ever PASS victory at Lee, while trying to shake off a shaky start to his 2021 SLM campaign.

 

Some of their biggest competition will be two Granite State drivers who have wins to their credit at Lee USA. Defending PASS North champion D.J. Shaw is back in action, as well as former PASS National champion Derek Griffith, who is fresh off another strong showing with the ARCA Menards Series two weeks ago at Kansas Speedway.

 

Massachusetts will also receive strong representation, with 2020 Snowflake 100 winner Jake Johnson continuing to craft his young racing career. Meanwhile, seasoned front-runner Derek Ramstrom will make his first racing appearance of 2021.

Entries for Sunday’s PASS event at Lee USA Speedway include Johnny Clark, Ben Rowe, Derek Griffith, D.J. Shaw, Jake Johnson and Derek Ramstrom.

It will also be a big day for the drivers of the PASS Modifieds, which makes its first appearance to Lee USA since 2018, with a 50-lap feature. The American-Canadian Tour is also back for the first time in three years, they will also go for 150 laps.

 

Ben Rowe has had a better time in 2021 after two rounds for ACT Late Models, leading over Stephen Donahue, Tom Carey III, and defending ACT champion Jimmy Hebert.

 

Post time is 2 p.m. ET this Sunday, May 16 with heat racing leading off the day for all three classes. Speed51.TV will go live at that time for heat, consolation, and feature races at Lee USA Speedway.
