NAPLES, ME — For only the second time this season, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models and the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models will compete together in Twin 150s as they headline the “Summer Showdown In The Mountains” at White Mountain Motorsports Park. This weekend will also mark the first time PASS has competed at the tight, quarter-mile confines which are located in North Woodstock, NH since May, 2014.
One driver who will be very busy this weekend will be homestate favorite Joey Polewarczyk. Joey Pole, as he is known by his fans, will be seeking his first career PASS North Super Late Model win, while also fielding an entry for the ACT Late Model event for his development driver, Ryan Olsen.
“We felt pretty strong about our car at White Mountain before the PASS race that was rained out in June and we feel like we keep improving on our Super Late Model program,” says Polewarczyk, driver of the Pole’s Automotive #97. “We are still searching for our first PASS win and White Mountain would be the perfect place. It’s small, fast, and very racy, so I think it will be very exciting.”
Last year, Polewarczyk attempted the PASS/ACT double as a driver at both Oxford Plains Speedway and Airborne International Speedway. This weekend, while still focusing on both cars, Polewarczyk hopes he will be able to focus differently on both races, while only driving himself in the PASS 150 lapper.
“I think it will be good because we can focus on Ryan [Olsen] with the ACT car and bounce ideas off each other about what the track’s doing, even though it’s two different types of cars,” says Polewarcyzk. “It will be a lot of work, but we are looking forward to it.”
A great field of PASS North Super Late Models is expected this weekend at White Mountain Motorsports Park. PASS North points leader and 4-time White Mountain winner, DJ Shaw, will be joined by former champions and White Mountain winners, Mike and Ben Rowe, and Johnny Clark. Former HP Hood Oxford 250 champions, Travis Benjamin and Glen Luce, will lead the Maine contingent, along with Tracy Gordon, Mike Hopkins, and Nick Jenkins. Granite State drivers Bryan Kruczek, Joe Squeglia, Jr., and Jeremy Davis will be joined by Vermont’s Todd Stone and Brent Dragon, Massachusetts’ Derek Ramstrom and Greg Nanigan, and Dany Poulin, who will be making the tow from Quebec.
Action begins on Saturday at White Mountain Motorsports Park with practice from 1 to 4:30 PM for the PASS North Super Late Models, ACT Late Models, and White Mountain divisions, with racing starting at 5.
Entry forms for upcoming PASS events at White Mountain, Oxford Plains, Lee, and South Boston, along with entry forms and information on the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com.
