Benjamin gets first PASS win this year in Southern Maine Chrysler Dodge Jeep 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway

PASSScarborough, Maine – Travis Benjamin of Morrill nailed down his first Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model win of the season Tuesday night at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway’s Southern Maine Chrysler Dodge Jeep 150. It was the first victory for Benjamin with the Petit Motorsports team he joined this season.

Benjamin was in control both early and late in the 150-lap event, battling several competitors for position through the middle stages of the race. At the end it was hometown Scarborough racer Garrett Hall pushing Benjamin across the finish line, falling just short of claiming his third win this year on the series.

Both Hall and third-place finisher Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, New Hampshire mounted serious challenges to Benjamin’s lead, especially on restarts. Former Beech Ridge track champion Dave Farrington Jr. of Jay led a healthy portion of the race, looking like a serious threat to score his first-ever PASS triumph en route to a fourth-place finish.

Scarborough, Maine — DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire drove from third position to first on a restart with four laps remaining in Saturday’s Southern Maine Chrysler Jeep Dodge 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway to nail down his first Pro All Stars Series Super Late Model win of the season.

 

Shaw, the 2014 PASS North Super Late Model champion, watched Doiron blast on by earlier in the race after the Berwick, Maine driver, and eventual runner-up, charged from his 14th starting position into a lead threatened only by hometown racer Garrett Hall – the opening day PASS Super Late Model winner at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway until the final pair of restarts took place, with six and four laps remaining, respectively.

 

Shaw had been a healthy distance behind Doiron aboard his Dale Shaw Race Cars / HK Powersports 60, but the once-dominant JBJ Machine 73 didn’t have the handles on cold tires.  That opened the door for Shaw, who stepped through and into victory lane.
