NAPLES ME (9/20) The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models head to the quick quarter mile at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock New Hampshire Saturday evening and the topsy turvy battle for the 2012 championship continues to intensify.
DJ Shaw may come to remember this past Sunday’s PASS 300 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway as the race that took him out of the 2012 title hunt. Shaw went into the day trailing point leader Cassius Clark by nine markers and he looked like a contender Sunday until he was swept up in a mid race wreck, eventually finishing 20th. That result drop kicked Shaw from second in points to third, 45 points back. Shaw and his team never give up, but they will need a heaping helping of luck to get back in the title chase.
Meanwhile, Travis Benjamin had one of his better Beech Ridge days, finishing third behind race winner Ben Rowe and Joey Doiron. His strong run combined with Shaw’s woes and Clark’s fifth place finish has pulled Benjamin to within eight of the leader.
Saturday’s 150 lapper is the third 2012 White Mountain visit by the fastest full fender short track racers; Cassius Clark earned a victory in the spring edition, while Shaw claimed the August race. Benjamin has a top five in the spring White Mountain race, his best effort at the scenic NH speed plant in 2012.
Anything can happen in racing and often it does, so the next to last PASS super late model race of the season could easily turn the standings upside down once again.
The final point battle for White Mountain’s five weekly racing divisions completes the card. Racing gets the green at 5:00 PM. Check out all the standings and results at www.proallstarsseries.com and like Pro All Stars Series on Facebook to keep up with the latest PASS news while on the go.
