Nobody could beat the weather Sunday afternoon, but DJ Shaw managed to beat the field in a rain shortened main event at Wiscasset Raceway to capture his first career PASS Super Late Model win. Rain moved into the midcoast region at around 3:20pm just as the 31 car field completed 98 laps in the Steel's Real Rod's and Customs 125 at Maine's Center of Speed. With no end to the rain in sight and a subsequent delay of nearly an hour, the race was called and Shaw declared the winner.

The 2007 Coastal 200 LMS champion and recent high school graduate delivered on his goal to take home a win in his rookie season on the PASS tour. The victory highlighted a busy double header weekend at Wiscasset Raceway. Sunday's show included action from the PASS Modifieds and PASS Sportsman series divisions as well as Wiscasset's Keystone Automotive Strictly Streets. While the PASS Mods had Troy Morse of Bridgeton take the 40 lap feature win, the 75 lap PASS Sportsman feature and the 50 lap Strictly Street Nationals Qualifier were lost to the rain and will be rescheduled at a later date to be determined. With the threat of the inclement weather heading toward the coast, PASS officials broke from the scheduled program and moved the main event up in the running order. Just four cautions slowed the action with the key twist coming on a lap 39 restart. Coming to the green, leader Kelly Moore would spin his tires and turn the lead over to Scott Chubbuck. Just a lap later Moore got into the back of Chubbuck's car heading into turn three, turning the leader around and sending both contenders to the back of the pack. Shaw would inheret the lead for the ensuing restart and hold it through a long green flag run until a lap 89 caution. Shaw held of a challenge from Cassius Clark and maintained his lead until the 5th and final caution of the race came for the rain just a few minutes later. Casius Clark worked the traffic to move into second by lap 41 but he wasn't able to challenge Shaw for the win beyond the one restart opportunity. Defending PASS Super Late Model champ Ben Rowe of Turner made a late charge to capture the 3rd place trophy. Adam Bates, Travis Benjamin, Gary Smith, Richie Dearborne, Scott Chubbuck, Steve Berry, and Alan Wilson filled out the top ten. With the win Shaw has secured himself a guaranteed starting spot in the $30,000 to win Toyota Tundra 250 to be held at Wiscasset Raceway Sunday August 17th.  For more information and the official finish of the PASS SLM race and PASS Modified race, check the official PASS website at www.proallstarsseries.com.

    In weekly racing series action on Saturday night Cushing's Chuck Lachance survived a battle of attrition in the 50 lap feature for the Clark's Car Crushing Prostocks to pick up his first Wiscasset win in nine years. Other winners in Saturday's action included Richmond's Casey Nash in the Smith Construction Late Model Sportsmen; Mike Landry of Oakland in the Unicel Super Street feature; Ed Pierpont of Jefferson in the Keystone Automotive Strictly Streets; Shawn Kimball of Pittston in the Aable Autoparts Mini Stocks; Chris Doucette of Sebego in the White & Bradstreet Mini Trucks; and Jason Palmer of Berlin, CT in the NELCAR Legends. Kimball's win in the 30 lap Mini Stock main secured him a starting position in the 50 lap Pure Stock Mini Stock Nationals in October. Kimball grabbed the lead from the outside of the front row and ran wire to wire for the victory. Dan Somes of Sidney chased him across the line a half straightaway behind for the runner up finish and Union's Mac Hannan Jr completed the top three. In the 50 lap Clark's Car Crushing Prostock feature Cushing's Chuck Lanchance withstood several restart challenges thanks to nine cautions, and a furious last lap duel with Ricky Morse to secure the win, his first at Wiscasset since his five win season of 1999. Morse raced his way to the second place finish and nearly passed Lachance on the outside coming out of the final turn to the checkers. "Big" John Phippen of Bar Harbor joined them with a third place finish. Richmond's Casey Nash took the wire to wire victory in the 30 lap Smith Construction Late Model feature. For Nash, Wiscasset's 1988 Charger champion, it was his first win since 2000. He was joined in victory lane by TJ Watson of Harpswell and Josh St Clair of Liberty. Mike Landry made an impressive move in the 25 lap Unicel Super Street feature as he jumped from his 3rd position into the lead after the pair of Jeremy Glasier and Nate Weston tangled in turn four following a lap 16 restart. From there he held off Weston and Allen Moeller to become the division's first repeat winner this season. In the 20 lap feature for the Keystone Automotive Strictly Streets Jefferson's Ed Peirpont held off his Team Big Iron teammate Dave Brannon to pick up his first checkered flag of the season. They were joined by defending champ Maurice Young who finished 3rd. The White & Bradstreet Mini Truck 15 lap feature went to Sebego's Chris Doucette who led from green to checkers.
