Vallee-Jonction, Quebec – DJ Shaw and the #60 Precision JLM team traveled north of the international border this past weekend to the tight ¼ mile bullring, Autodrome Chaudiere, for the Pro All Stars Series North “Frameco 150.” Making his way through the pack early, Shaw was involved in an incident and had to settle for an eventual eleventh place finish.
The day started off with Shaw finishing fifth from the rear of the field in his heat race, putting him in the 15th spot for the 150 lap feature event. The starting position wasn’t a worry to the team though, as they’ve started in the middle of the pack each race so far this season. Shaw worked his way through traffic early and had one of the fastest cars on the track until an incident with Trevor Sanborn relegated Shaw to the rear of the field with a bent suspension. That was just one of the many incidents in the caution filled event on the tight bullring. The team compensated for the bent suspension the best they could after the wreck, and rallied to finish 11th when the checkered flag waved.
“While it is frustrating, we had a good car and I’ve never been a fan of these types of racetracks, we were fast tonight and have a good setup for our next two stops here,” said Shaw of the team’s performance, as the PASS North Series will travel to Chaudiere two more times this season as part of the Autobus Quebecois Triple Crown Series, which has a combined purse of over $30,000.
Joey Doiron drove Shaw’s backup car to his third straight runner up finish after experiencing engine trouble in his primary car, and extended his points lead in the process. The next event for the Precision JLM team will be at Shaw’s home track of White Mountain Motorsports Park, a track Shaw has seen a lot of success at, including a win last season. Racing will kick off at four in the afternoon next weekend on Saturday, May 25th.
