NAPLES, Maine – official series release – PASS photo –
The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North super late models will return to New Hampshire’s White Mountain Motorsports Park on Saturday for the Foley Oil Company 150, ending a two-year absence for the series at the track, and few drivers are looking forward to the event as much as six-time series champion Johnny Clark.
Clark currently sits fourth in points based largely on consistency. While Clark’s only top five finish was a third in a thrilling Oxford Plains Speedway duel in April, he has finished in the top 10 in all but one race in 2016.
Clark hopes this weekend luck will be on his side as he seeks his first win of the season.
“We are not satisfied just running top 10,” said Clark. “We need to switch it up just a bit and get closer towards the front to pick up that first win of the season.”
Since PASS last competed at White Mountain Motorsports Park in 2014, the track has seen many upgrades. Clark hopes that plays into the hands of experienced teams, like his own, on Saturday night.
“This weekend is what our team needs,” says Clark. “Our team needs to go to a racetrack where nobody has been for a few seasons. Plus, you throw in the fact that White Mountain has had some pavement work done since the last time PASS raced there, and it should make for a really good show.”
The race for the 2016 PASS North super late model championship is heated, with seven drivers within 68 points heading to White Mountain. Of those seven, four are former PASS North champions, led by current points leader and Granite State native D.J. Shaw.
Four-time series champion Ben Rowe leads all drivers with eight career PASS North wins at White Mountain, but has gone winless there since 2008. Clark has also won at White Mountain, taking the checkered flag there en route to back-to-back titles in 2010 and 2011.
