North Woodstock, NH — Derek Griffith of Hudson, New Hampshire raced to his second Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model victory of the season Saturday night in the 150-lap event topping the racing car at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, New Hampshire.
To earn this trip to the winners’ circle Griffith needed to take command of the race from Ben Rowe, the reigning PASS Super Late Model National Champion who is no stranger to victory lane at the high-banked, quarter-mile oval.
Griffith’s LCM Motorsports 12 was chased under the checkered flag by Travis Benjamin of Morrill, Maine. Benjamin vaulted into the PASS North Super Late Model championship points lead with his runner-up finish aboard the Petit Motorsports 7.

After a hectic week rebuilding the #17 EXIT Realty/Hancock Electric Chevy, Eddie MacDonald almost pulled off the win in the “Showdown in the Mountains” at WMMP on Sunday, July 24. With 16 laps to go Eddie Mac could not hold off the hard-charge of Dillon Moltz to finish second in the American Canadian Tour’s ninth race of the season at the No. Woodstock, N.H. track.
“Obviously we would have liked to get the win but when you consider everything the team had to go through this week just to get here, a second place finish is outstanding,” said a pleased Eddie Mac after the race. “I definitely have a lot of people to thank for all the hard work and long hours to rebuild the car starting with Dale Shaw and his guys who put a rear clip on the car in record time so we could have any chance to be here. Donny got parts to Freddie to paint. Tom Rice, my father, John Tiernan, Rob Drandson, and Dick Casey spent countless hours in the shop. It was a miracle to have this ready and for it run as well as it did.”

NAPLES, ME (July 21) – For only the second time this season, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models and the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models will compete together in Twin 150s as they headline the “Summer Showdown In The Mountains” at White Mountain Motorsports Park. This weekend will also mark the first time PASS has competed at the tight, quarter-mile confines which are located in North Woodstock, NH since May, 2014.
One driver who will be very busy this weekend will be homestate favorite Joey Polewarczyk. Joey Pole, as he is known by his fans, will be seeking his first career PASS North Super Late Model win, while also fielding an entry for the ACT Late Model event for his development driver, Ryan Olsen.
“We felt pretty strong about our car at White Mountain before the PASS race that was rained out in June and we feel like we keep improving on our Super Late Model program,” says Polewarczyk, driver of the Pole’s Automotive #97. “We are still searching for our first PASS win and White Mountain would be the perfect place. It’s small, fast, and very racy, so I think it will be very exciting.”
