NAPLES, ME -- Following the enormous success of the 46th Annual Oxford 250, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North racers should be well rested as they begin the stretch run to decide the championship this weekend at Oxford Plains Speedway. With the season starting to wind down, a big field of PASS North Super Late Models and PASS Modifieds are expected on Sunday afternoon for a big day of racing planned at Oxford Plains.
The battle for the Northeast's most prestigious Super Late Model championship has come down to five drivers, all within 100 points of one another. New Hampshire's DJ Shaw looks to defend his title from a year ago, knowing that a bad finish could prove disastrous with a big field expected on Sunday.
Vermont's Nick Sweet was finally able to score his elusive first win in PASS in early August at Oxford Plains. Now Sweet sits just 31 markers behind Shaw. A strong runner-up finish in the Oxford 250 has moved defending PASS National Champion, Derek Griffith, up to third in points. While 5-Time PASS National Champion, Ben Rowe, and two-time Oxford Plains winner in 2019, Garrett Hall, sit fourth and fifth respectively, as they look to pounce should any of the leads encounter trouble this weekend.
But, they will not be the only contenders. This year's Oxford Plains Speedway track champion and 2017 Oxford 250 winner, Curtis Gerry, will be back at his home track looking to continue his mastery of the speedway. And, former PASS North & South Champion, Mike Rowe, returns as he seeks his first PASS North win since 2015.
A strong field is expected for Sunday afternoon’s action at Oxford Plains Speedway, including former Oxford 250 winner, Scott Robbins., along with fellow Mainers like Ben Ashline, Tim & TJ Brackett, Reid Lanpher, and Alan Wilison. Former track champion Gabe Brown is entered, along with fellow Granite State racer, Dan WInter, while Vermont's Bobby Therrien will make the tow over from Vermont.
The PASS Modified division has seen a major resurgence in 2019, led by points leader Spencer Morse. But, Morse's hands could be full as Jairet Harrison, Mike Carigan, Kate Re, Matty Sanborn, Tyler King, and Justin Larsen have all made trips to victory lane this season.
Action gets under way on Sunday with practice starting at 10 AM, heat races at 1:30 PM, and main events to follow for the PASS North Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds, Street Stocks, and Bandits.
PASS Super Late Model entry forms for Oxford Plains Speedway, White Mountain Motorsports Park and Thunder Road International Speedbowl, along with the PASS National Championship finale at Lanier Raceplex in Georgia, can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com.
