One of New England’s all-time greatest drivers switched gears in 2009, and ended up very satisfied with his change of scenery.
Mike Rowe, 59, of Turner, Maine, won The Pine Tree State’s 2009 NASCAR championship. He launched to state champion status from his 2009 NASCAR Pro Series (Late Model) division track championship at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, Maine. The .333-mile paved oval is acclaimed as one of the top motorsports and family entertainment facilities in the nation.
A seasoned veteran, Rowe sounds like he had an enjoyable experience in 2009. Not only did he compete full time at Beech Ridge for the first time in his life, he also joined a team for which he had never driven before. He ended up adding some polish to a fabulous career.
