Naples, ME — Their racing divisions have the best names in the sport;: Mad Bombers, Mighty Trucks, Outlaws, Varsity, Runnin’ Rebels, Beetle Bugs and a whole bunch more. They’re the Mid Week Warriors that take little more than a street car (or truck), add the required safety equipment and go racing. For many competitors they are in their first race car ever, and for others the mid week racing wars are just perfect for their budget. It takes cubic inches and talent to win at this level, not cubic dollars.
Maine’s midweek racers put on some of the most competitive and exciting racing out there and they will be in the spotlight Thursday September 9th when they kick off PASS 400 weekend ay Scarborough Maine’s Beech Ridge Motor Speedway. Depending on car count there’s up to fifty laps of racing and five hundred dollars on the line for the winners. That payday is more than most of these guys and gals can earn in a season, so there’s plenty of incentive to win this one. The back gate at Beech Ridge swings open at noon and practice gets underway at 2:00 PM.
2009 Thursday night feature wins went to Kyle Hewins (Runnin’ Rebel four cylinder), Chad Binette (MightyTrucks), Jason Curtis (Junior Varsity) and Larry Emerson (Outlaws).
The biggest Maine racing week of 2010 gets started Thursday at 5:45 PM. There’s a full day of practice set for Friday September 10th starting at 12:00 noon. On Saturday September 11th the racing goes green in earnest with qualifying races for the PASS Super Late Models, Mods and Sportsman plus feature racing for the Road Runners, Wildcat/Strictly and Legends divisions.
