Rogers Rocks PASS Regulars at Beech Ridge – Shaw Claims PASS Mod Win

Naples, ME — Beech Ridge Pro Series racer Bill Rogers took advantage of a green-white-checker finish to beat Trevor Sanborn in Saturday night’s PASS 150 at Scarborough Maine’s Beech Ridge Motor Speedway . Cassius Clark, Scott Mulkern and Johnny Clark chased Rogers and Sanborn to the checkers.

Rogers didn’t luck into the win by any means. The Old Orchard Beach racer was fast throughout the night. He took the lead from Scott Chubbuck on lap five and held the spot until Trevor Sanborn took over on lap thirty nine. At the half-way mark it was Sanborn, Rogers, Chubbuck, Scott Mulkern and Cassius Clark leading the way.

Rodgers took back the top spot on a lap 83 restart and stayed there until Sanborn returned the favor when the field went back to green after a lap 118 caution. It looked like Sanborn was in a position to finally claim a PASS North feature win; Rogers was right on his bumper though and Mulkern, Chubbuck and a resurgent Mike Rowe were all battling for position. Rowe’s night ended early with a disqualification after Chubbuck went around off of Rowe’s front bumper to bring out another caution at lap 132.

Point leader Keith Rocco also received damage and joined them on pit road for repairs. All but Pearl were able to resume.

Pressell was able to retain his lead on the restart, but James, Ceravolo, and Chadwick were all looking for racing room behind keeping the pressure on Pressell out front.
