Beech RidgeScarborough, ME- Saturday’s NASCAR Nite Pro Series 40-lap feature event was won by veteran Mike Rowe, of Turner.

At the drop of the green, Jeff Fagan, of Waltham, MA, paced the 19-car field to the green flag and led the race until a caution on lap two bunched the 19-car field back together. On the restart, Saco’s Steve Carrier gained an advantage going into the corner and safely passed Fagan for the lead.

Carrier led until a caution flew at the halfway mark. The caution was helpful for Rowe who started 12th and worked his way into the top three by lap 20.

On the restart, Carrier chose the outside lane, which was unsuccessful as Rowe was able to maneuver his way by him for the lead from the inside rail. Rowe then opened up a multiple car length advantage and never looked back. He led the remaining 15 laps on his way to his second victory of the season.

Hard charger Tyler King, of Livermore, was able to claim a top ten finish after getting into a early race incident that sent him to the pits. He rebounded and capped the night with a solid performance.

Along with King, points leader Dan McKeage, of Gorham, was able to salvage a top-five finish after beginning the race in his 16th starting position.

With the victory, Rowe is the only driver to have repeat victories in NASCAR Pro Series 2013 season. The win will also position Rowe and McKeage in a neck-and-neck points battle with only six races remaining.
