Story By: MARK THOMAS / PRO ALL STAR SERIES – NORTH WOODSTOCK, NH – Ben Rowe of Turner, Maine raced to his first Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model win of the year Saturday night at White Mountain Motorsports Park. Rowe won for the tenth time in PASS Super Late Model competition on White Mountain’s high-banked, quarter-mile oval, by far the most in series history.
Rowe, the all-time PASS North leader in race victories. spent most of the race battling another multi-time series champion, Johnny Clark of Farmingdale, Maine, for the race lead. Rowe’s final test was provided by Joey Pole, Jr. of Hudson, who mounted an impressive challenge after lining up 17th on the starting grid.
Pole earned runner-up honors, just ahead of Connecticut invader Dillon Moltz, who started dead last in the 150-lapper after changing engines in the pit area prior to the green flag. Clark, a six-time PASS North Super Late Model titlist, ended up in fourth position, just ahead of recently-crowned Oxford Plains Speedway Super Late Model champion Gabe Brown of Center Conway, New Hampshire.
Brown’s mentor, reigning PASS North champion DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire, padded his advantage atop the series’ points standings, finishing seven spots better than chief championship rival Travis Benjamin of Belfast, Maine.
Craig Weinstein of East Walpole, Mass., Reid Lanpher of Manchester, Maine, Derek Griffith of Hudson, New Hampshire and Derek Ramstrom of Worcester, Massachusetts rounded out the top ten. Trevor Sanborn of East Parsonsfield, Maine was swapping the lead with Clark and Rowe before apparent tire misfortune relegated him to a 17th-place finish.
The next Pro All Stars Series North event is scheduled for Sunday, September 23 at 3:00 p.m. at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, located at 70 Holmes Road in Scarborough, Maine.
