Qualifying Format: There will be three qualifying heat races to set the field for tonight’s PASS 150. Drivers who have won a PASS North race this season can start no better than 11th.
Event Schedule: Racing begins at 7 p.m. ET. There will be qualifying heats for the PASS North Super Late Models and PASS Modifieds prior to feature racing.
Who to Watch For: It’s difficult to say a name other than Curtis Gerry given his recent success at Beech Ridge and with the Pro All Stars Series. Gerry enters Saturday’s race after winning his previous four PASS North starts including the PASS 200 at Beech Ridge back in April. He’s also fresh off a win Monday night in a 50-lap weekly event at the track.
Look for Reid Lanpher, Travis Benjamin and Garrett Hall to be among those who could challenge Gerry for the win.
Title Fight: DJ Shaw leads Derek Griffith by 10 points in the championship standings. Travis Benjamin sits just one point back of Griffith in third.
The Track: Beech Ridge Motor Speedway is 1/3-mile semi-banked asphalt oval located in Scarborough, Maine.
Weather: It will be a great summer day for racing with clear skies and temperatures in the low to mid 70s.
Next Series Race: After a busy stretch of three races in seven days, the PASS North Super Late Models will have over three weeks off before returning to action on Sunday, July 29 at Oxford Plains Speedway (ME).
