NAPLES, Maine – Following a rare off weekend, the Pro All Stars Series North super late models and PASS Modifieds return to action Sunday at Speedway 95 for the Hopkins Milling & Paving 150.
The speedway, known as Maine’s Family Fun Track, will host the next Road To The Oxford 250 qualifier. Courtesy of Hopkins Milling & Paving, adult tickets will be $15.
By virtue of his second PASS win of the season at Oxford Plains Speedway, Garrett Hall has shot to the top of the standings over three-time PASS North champion, D.J. Shaw, and rookie competitor Gabe Brown. Heading back to Speedway 95 on Sunday, Hall is familiar with the Hermon, Maine, track, having won there in 2016.
“The track is bumpy, fast and fun,” says Hall. “The high side has a little more banking on it and you can keep your momentum going up there.”
With a 24-point cushion over Shaw in the standings, Hall believes this weekend at Speedway 95, and the races leading up to the 46th annual Oxford 250 in August, are pivotal if he wants to challenge for his first PASS North title later this year.
“It’s really important because the competition is so tough and there’s 10 cars that can win every week,” said Hall. “We’re hoping to keep the momentum going and get another win on Sunday at Speedway 95.”
While much of the attention will be on the points leaders, the leading PASS winner at Speedway 95 with three wins, Ben Rowe, will be looking to return to victory lane there for the first time in 16 years.
In addition, former PASS North champions Johnny Clark and Travis Benjamin are entered, along with defending PASS National champion Derek Griffith. Current PASS National Championship leader and Richmond winner Mike Hopkins has filed an entry, while Brown, Scott Chubbuck, Chad Dow, Andy Saunders, Gary Smith, and Bobby Therrien have also filed entries.
