Naples ME (June 14) Ben Rowe hung out in the top five for the majority of Saturday night’s Pro All Stars Series (PASS) 200 at Geary New Brunswick’s Speedway 660 and took the lead from Kirk Thibeau for good on lap 149 to claim his second PASS North super late model win of 2009.

Adam Bates chased Rowe to the checkers and Nova Scotian John Flemming returned to PASS competition with a third place finish. Kirk Thibeau hung on to finish fourth with Travis Benjamin fifth. Kelly Moore rebounded from a spectacular wreck at the touring series’ last outing at White Mountain Motorsports Park with a sixth place run. Lonnie Sommerville dominated the first half of the 200 lap grind, but a flat shortly after the half way break set him back to seventh Richie Dearborn, Shawn Tucker, and Greg Fahey completed the top ten.

Problems beset a number of the PASS front runners. Johnny Clark lost a right front wheel on lap 68, sending the point leader into the sand banks. Clark returned many laps down to salvage a 14th place finish. DJ Shaw started on the pole but suffered a flat tire and lost several laps, eventually finishing fifteenth. An early race wreck claimed Cassius Clark, local racer Brent Wiggins and Scott Alexander. Local super late model favorite Dave O’Blenis was out at the half-way mark.

Nine cars completed the 200 lap distance. The lead changed hands six times amongst five drivers; eleven cautions slowed the race.  DJ Shaw, Kelly Moore and Adam Bates claimed the qualifying races.
Next weekend it’s a doubleheader for the PASS super late models. The PASS South warriors head for Georgia’s New Senoia Raceway for the Dixie 150 on Saturday night June 20th.  The PASS North teams will take on “Maine’s toughest oval”, Unity Raceway on Sunday  afternoon June 21st for the NAPA 150. The PASS Mod and PASS Sportsman series complete that card, and there are two-for-one admission coupons available now at all northern New England NAPA stores.
