NAPLES ME (6/7) The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North super late models venture north to Maritime Canada for their annual appearance at Geary New Brunswick’s Speedway 660 on Saturday June 9. It’s a road trip that every PASS team looks forward to and a rare home turf appearance for the New Brunswick racers that follow the series.
Lonnie Sommerville will be on familiar ground Saturday; he’s won the tracks Auto Value 250 event twice but a PASS North 660 win is definitely on his bucket list. Sommerville is currently third in the season long point standings with a top five and two top ten finishes after three starts, and he will look for win number one of 2012 on Saturday night. Matt Matheson calls Geary New Brunswick home and his team will appreciate the home game atmosphere at Speedway 660, where the PASS road show always plays to a packed house. PASS newcomer Matt Harris lives just up the road in Fredericton Junction and he will have the home track advantage on his side as well. Chris Duncan rounds out the list of early New Brunswick early entries that will take on their USA counterparts.
That list is topped by defending PASS North champion Johnny Clark, winner of the last two PASS North Speedway 660 events. Ben Rowe has several PASS wins in the Geary Woods and Rowe will be looking for his first win of 2012. PASS North point leader Joey Doiron, DJ Shaw, Gary Smith, Travis Benjamin, Mike Rowe, Kyle DeSouza , Cassius Clark and Derek Ramstrom are just a few of the top guns making the Speedway 660 trip, as are Quebec racers Alex Gingras and Kevin Roberge. It’s an all star field that will likely see some last minute additions from the Maritimes and beyond.
It’s the first extra distance race of 2012 for the PASS North racers, with 200 green flag laps on tap for the fastest full fendered touring series in the east.
Speedway 660’s own Street Stock and Sportsman divisions round out the Saturday night June 9 action. The first green flag flies at 7:00 PM.
