djshaw_headshotOxford, ME – DJ Shaw and the #60 Precision JLM team made their way back to Oxford Plains Speedway this past weekend for the fifth event of the Pro All Stars Series North season. The team was looking to improve from their previous race at Oxford where they struggled throughout the day with a tight racecar, but salvaged a sixth place effort. This time around, the team hit the setup right and had one of their best performances of the season on the PASS North Series.

Starting from the 12th position in the 150 lap event, Shaw worked his way into the top ten early, but multiple cautions in the race’s early laps stalled his progress before he was able to make his way through the field. On the races first long green flag run, that’s just what he did. Making the outside groove work to his advantage, Shaw went from ninth at the start of the run, to the lead on lap 62 after dueling with Mike Rowe. Shaw opened his lead up to over a straightaway over the field before the field was slowed by a caution flag with 46 laps to go.

Battling hard with Travis Benjamin for the win, the two put on a great show for the race lead, with Benjamin able to get by Shaw in the final laps. Shaw was able to finish the race in the second spot, another strong performance for the team in what has been a great year so far.

“We had such a strong car tonight and everyone on this crew has worked hard to make sure we are ready as we can be for the (TD Bank) 250 next weekend,” Shaw said after the race, “We can still be better and I knew I had to open up a lead if we wanted a shot to win because the 17 was fast, we didn’t need the cautions at the end but we had a great race and I’m looking forward to the big race next weekend.”

Shaw returned to his home track of White Mountain Motorsports Park for the American Canadian Tour race in the 51NH car owned by Jeremy Harclerode. After starting deep in the field, Shaw was able to get a 17th place finish out of the car in a relatively clean and fast paced race. The day was a success for Shaw though, as Bobby Therrien took the win in a Dale Shaw Race Cars chassis

The focus now shifts to next weekend, as the Precision JLM team will return to Oxford Plains Speedway for the biggest weekend in short track racing, the prestigious 40th Annual TD Bank 250. The race will feature the Super Late Model cars for the first time since 2006, and is a PASS National points race, which Shaw currently holds the points lead in. Racing is set to start off with the always intense heat races at 2:00PM, with the 250 lap main event to finish the evening. Get to the track this weekend to see history made, and cheer for the Precision JLM as Shaw chases his first 250 crown.
