Five in a row for Shaw, Tatro’s now two for two
NAPLES ME (7/14) The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Mods and Sportsman were on the PASS Bastille 200 card at Lee USA Speedway Tuesday night, and the faces carrying the checkers to victory lane were familiar.
Andy Shaw took a little longer to get to the front than usual, but the results were the same. Shaw took advantage of a restart on lap 30 of the 40 lap feature to drive around Rich Ferreira for his fifth win in five 2011 PASS Mod starts.
It looked like Ferreira was ready to end Shaw’s streak Ferreira started on pole and didn’t look like he could be challenged . Shaw had worked his way to second by the half way mark but Ferreira was able to maintain a gap on him,but a lapcaution flag gave the defending series champ the shot he needed and the outside groove worked in his favor.
Ferreira stood his ground for second and Mark Lundblad Jr. had his best PASS Mod run ever to claim the final podium spot.
Alan Wilson and Ferreira each claimed a heat race win.
The PASS Sportsman series ran seventy five green flag laps and as always they put on an action packed race with challenges for position all around the speedway. Carey Martin and Shane Tatro brought the field to the green and Martin jumped out front, and the pair raced that way to well past the half way mark until RJ Austin flexed his muscle, taking over the top spot on lap 59.
Martin and Tatro were right on Austin’s bumper and a restart on lap 68 saw Austin spin his tires, allowing Tatro and Martin to get by . Four laps later Martin and Austin got together to bring out the final caution and end their chances for victory..
At the checkers it was Tatro going two for two in victory lane with Kenny Marnier second and Scott Dorr third.
The PASS Mods will take on Oxford Plains Speedway for the first time ever on Friday July 22, and PASS Sportsman are scheduled to get back on track Sunday August 28th at White Mountain Motorsports Park.
