NAPLES ME (October 14 2009) The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Sportsman racers started their 2009 season at Speedway 95 in April, when the season was new and every competitor was tied for the points lead. October has arrived and after six races and six months there’s still a tie at the top of the heap and one driver that trails the top two by just three markers.
That’s as tight as it gets, and the top three will do battle this Saturday afternoon at the PASS sanctioned Riverside Speedway in Groveton New Hampshire for the title. Carey Martin and Mike Landry are deadlocked with 284 points apiece and Dan Mckeage trails the pair by three at 281. Any one of the three could wind up with the 2009 Champion’s trophy. Lyman Mckeage sits in fourth with 213 and just one point separates him from fifth place points man Shane Tatro.
So there’ll be plenty of races within the race to keep an eye on as the PASS Sportsman take on an expected full field of Sportsman/Limited racers from throughout the region. It’s guaranteed to be some of the best racing you’ll see this season, and the tough Riverside oval only makes the show even better.
The PASS Sportsman title race is just a portion of the huge Russ’s NAPA presents the 4th annual Frostbite 400, highlighted by a 250 lap, $5,000.00 to win four and six cylinder Enduro, the speedway’s own Cyclone division championship, Dwarf Cars and Daredevils. It’s grass roots racing at its very best, and a great way to wrap the PASS Sportsman season.
Pit gates open October 17 at 8:00 AM, tech gets underway at 9:00 AM, and post time for the first race is 1:30 PM. For more details please visit www.riversidespeedway.org .
