Unity ME (May 16) Johnny Clark  wrestled the lead away from Randy Turner on a lap 111 restart and held the point for the final 39 laps to capture the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North super late model  Unity 150 at Unity(ME) Raceway.  Scott Chubbuck hung tough to come home second with local super late model ace Randy Turner third. Kelly Moore and DJ Shaw completed the top five.

Travis Benjamin and Scott Alexander made up the front row. Benjamin grabbed the early lead but gave it up to Chubbuck at lap 35. Clark charged to the front early from his 11th place starting position and took the lead on lap 38. The laps were clicking away rapidly with a single caution marring the race at the half way mark. It was Johnny Clark out front with Ben Rowe second, Travis Benjamin third, Turner fourth and Chubbuck riding fifth. Benjamin decided it was time to go on lap 105, and the former Unity regular retook the lead.  Rowe and Turner also got by Clark, and Rowe immediately tried Benjamin on the bottom. The turn four bumps on the tough old speedway sent Rowe up the track and the pair banged wheels. Benjamin took a ride off of turn four and Rowe was sent to the back of the field for his part in the incident. The pair would restart in 14th and 15th respectively.

So the front of the field was shuffled as Turner inherited the lead with Johnny Clark to his outside and Scott Chubbuck right behind him. Billy Penfold sat in fourth with Adam Bates fifth. Clark took advantage of his outside row starting spot to get the jump on Turner and retake the point. Turner, and later Chubbuck, both challenged the reigning PASS super late model champ prevailed for his second win of the young PASS North season.

Cassius Clark led the PASS North super late model point standings  after the season’s first two events, but mechanical issues put him out of the show at lap 58. Saturday’s heat races went to Travis Benjamin, Scott Alexander, and Bill Penfold. Fourteen cars completed all 150 green flag laps; four cautions slowed the event, which took one hour to complete.

The PASS road show moves on to White Mountain Motorsports Park  Saturday May 23rd.  The PASS super late models will be joined by White Mountain’s weekly racing divisions for an opening day spectacular at the North Woodstock NH oval. Racing gets underway at 4:00 sharp.
