Mike Rowe Wins Atlantic CAT 250 PASS North Event

mikeroweac250.jpgNaples, ME — For the second time in the past three seasons, Mike Rowe won the Atlantic CAT 250 Pro All Star Series (PASS) North Super Late Model race at Scotia Speedworld in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Rowe, who also won the race in 2005, had his work cut out for him in winning Saturday night’s event though. Richie Dearborn led from the pole position and set the pace early on. Last year’s Atlantic CAT 250 winner Johnny Clark also led laps, as did a trio of talented PASS North rookies – Derek Ramstrom, Trevor Sanborn and Adam Bates.

With just under 80 laps to go, Rowe used his experience to take over the top spot. He stayed out front and won the race over Travis Benjamin and Clark.

The victory is the fourth of the 2007 season for Rowe and his #2 PT Watts team.

PASS North point leader Ben Rowe was involved in an early wreck and finished 15th, which allowed his father Mike Rowe, currently ranked second in the standings, to gain ground in the race for the 2007 PASS North championship.

The PASS North Super Late Models will return to action Sunday, August 19th at Wiscasset Raceway (ME).

The 2007 PASS Super Late Model schedules will be highlighted by two major fall events. The PASS 400 weekend at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (ME) is set for September 23rd-24th and the Second Annual Mason-Dixon Meltdown is scheduled for Concord Motorsport Park on November 16th-17th.
