Who to Watch For:
There is a strong field of 27 PASS Super Late Models here today, but one driver to keep an eye on is 2016 Beech Ridge Motor Speedway Champion Curtis Gerry. Gerry has been near the top of the charts all weekend as well. Fans should also pay attention to Reid Lanpher after he captured his first career PASS victory at Oxford Plains last weekend and he has the fastest time in practice so far this weekend. Joey Doiron is another driver to look at this weekend. Doiron is always fast at Beech Ridge and could turn his season around here today.
Glen Luce leads four-time PASS North Champion Ben Rowe by three points entering today’s race.
Beech Ridge Motor Speedway is a 1/3 mile semi-banked oval located in Scarborough, Maine.
The temperature is in the mid-70’s today with a slight breeze. The sun is out, but it is partly cloudy.
Next Series Race: Star Speedway (NH) will host the PASS Support 50 Legs 50 next Saturday, May 6.
