Naples ME – (September 22, 2008)  Donnie Morse Jr. looked like he would have a solid top five finish as the laps ran down Sunday in the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Pluffybilt Sportsman 100 . But with four laps to go, Morse found himself scooting under the top four and taking over the lead as a four car melee at the front took out the rest of the front runners. Morse then cruised to victory over Russell Morse and Steve Bennett Sr. to score the win in the season’s biggest race for the PASS Sportsman division.

Until that point it looked like Terry Merrill, and Wayne Helliwell Jr.  were going to duke it out for the win. The pair had swapped the top spot several times, often twice on the same lap as they battled side by side for the point. But Dan McKeage had raced his way up through the field to third as the laps wound down and was looking to challenge the top two McKeage got his chance to make a run on a lap 96 restart, trying to get under Helliwell on the bottom. The move didn’t work, the pair came together and the end result was a new leader as Mckeage, Helliwell, Merrill and Carey Martin all went spinning.
It was a wild finish to a wild race that was slowed thirteen times by caution flags
PASS Pluffybilt Sportsman regular Richie Morse finished fourth with Jeff Irish fifth. Helliwell recoverd for sixth and Reggie Leeman was seventh. Clyde Hennessey, McKeage, and Alan Moeller rounded out the top ten.
Richie Morse now leads Steve Bennett  276-250 in the  Sportsman point standings .The PASS Pluffybilt Racing Tractors Sportsman Championship will be determined when the series heads to Groveton New Hampshire’s Riverside Speedway for their season finale on  Saturday October 11th as a part of Riverside’s  popular Frost Bite 250 event.
