Vaughn, Dow and Beaulieu Claim Saturday PASS 400 Weekend Wins

Scarborough, ME — Day three of PASS 400 weekend was highlighted by qualifying for all three PASS North touring divisions plus features for the Legends, Road Runners and Wildcats.

144 race cars rolled through the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway back gate and from the first green to the final checker the fans in the stands witnessed short track racing at its finest.

Tom Scully Jr., Joey Doiron, David Oliver and PASS Super Late Model point leader Johnny Clark all claimed their qualifiers. Super Late Model consolation rounds went to PASS National Series point leader Preston Peltier and 2009 PASS North Rookie of the Year Nick Ribbe. Sunday’s Last Chance race will determine the final qualifiers for the 300 lap, $10,000 to win PASS 300.

Heat race wins for Sunday’s PASS Sportsman 100 went to Grant Aither, Jay Sands and Craig Smith Sumner Sessions and John Brill came out on top of the PASS Mod heats. The Mods will run a 50 lap feature Sunday and a new PASS Mod Champion will be crowned.

With PASS qualifying complete it was feature time for the Road Runners and the field made quick work of their show with just one lap nineteen caution to mar the 25 lapper. Matt Dow captured the win over Shawn Brackett, David Turner, Tasha Dyer and Donnie Dinsmore.

A twenty two car Legends field ran a 50 lap Nationals qualifier and when the dust cleared it was Evan Beaulieu in victory lane.

Seventy five laps for the Wildcats wrapped up the day’s racing with Mike Short leading the thirty two car field to the green. Short jumped out front from the pole but a miscue sent him back through the field and Nate Leavitt took over the point. Leavitt, Keith Stewart and David Vaughn broke away from the pack at the halfway mark and the trio ran nose to tail until ten to go when Stewart experienced troubles and Vaughn went on by for second. The caution flew with two circuits remaining, setting up a green-white-checker with Leavitt on the inside and Vaughn on the high side. The pair raced side by side to the white flag, but Vaughn snatched the top spot from Leavitt coming off turn two to claim the win. Leavitt, Steve Benicasa, Louie Anderson and Matt Dow came home second through tenth.

On Sunday the feature racing goes green at 12:15 PM sharp with the PASS North super late model last chance qualifier, qualifying and a 50 lap feature for the North East Mini Stock Tour, 100 laps for the PASS Sportsman and the big one, the sixth annual PASS 300.
