A gorgeous Labor Day afternoon, greeted a good crowd of race fans at the Canaan Motorsports Complex in Canaan, New Hampshire, as the Pro All Star Series invaded the 1/3 mile Speedway with their PASS Outlaw Late Models, PASS Mods, PASS Pullen Industries Limited Sportsman, and a four cylinder open. Winners on the day included Walt Hammond, Jason Taylor, George Baldwin and Mark Childs Jr.
The Outlaw Late Models took center stage with a 100 lap main event. By virtue of his heat win, Mike Harnish grabbed the early lead, and held the field at bay til just past the half way point in the event. Alan Wilson and Walt Hammond were challenging on each restart, but never could quite get the jump on Harnish. On lap fifty-four, Harnish apparently missed a shift and fell deep into the field. Wilson was off like a rocket, when suddenly his car careened off the backstretch into the barrier, ending his day. A flat right front tire caused the mishap. This sent Hammond to the point, a position he wouldn't relinquish for the remainder of the event. Hammond's margin of victory was nearly a full straightaway. Following Hammond to the line were Jay Sands, Donnie Lashua, Jimmy Rosenfield and Mike Harnish. Heat checkers flew for Harnish, Wilson and Jimmy Renfrew.
Jason Taylor got to the front early in the PASS Mod 40 lapper and never looked back as he cruised to an easy win over Troy Morse and Chris Staples. Staples battled Morse hard over the final five laps but just couldn't find a way by. Fourth spot went to Gary Norris and Chris Smith completed the top five. Troy Morse and Richie Morse won their respective heats.
The double LL of George Baldwin absolutely dominated the Pullen Industries Limited Sportsman 75 lap main event, as survived numerous restarts and walked away with the first place trophy. Michael Landry gave it his best shot but had to settle for second. Chris Curtis and Ricky Bly placed third and fourth, while unofficially, Joe Tetreault rolled home in the fifth position. Baldwin, Joey Doiron and Landry posted heat victories.
The four cylinder Bandits entertained the crowd with some exciting three wide racing throughout the pack, but when all was said and done, Mark Childs Jr. dusted the field and took the top spot back to Maine with him. David Chestnut Jr., Amanda Kehoe, Kyle Small and Trevor Perrault completed the top five. Shawn Swallow and Childs won their respective qualifying events.
The next event on the PASS calendar will be Sunday, September 9th at Speedway 95. The PASS Outlaws, Mods and Sportsman will all be in action.
