Eddie Mac has the knack at Beech Ridge
SCARBOROUGH, Maine – Eddie MacDonald passed American Canadian Tour (ACT) point leader Scott Payea for the lead on lap 41 and went on to win the Coastal 100 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway Saturday.
MacDonald was shadowed by Payea the rest of the way as race stayed under green from start to finish. His winning margin of three car-lengths was the farthest MacDonald ever got from Payea, who was attempting to break his own record of four consecutive ACT Late Model wins.

For the last year and a half, the race shop at Pinion Racing has been silent. In 2016 After running a limited schedule of PASS South races over the last 8 years, the Virginia based team would not compete on track in any series for the first time since its creation in 1993. “When we got the news of Masons diagnosis racing just wasn’t a priority anymore.” In January of last year Driver Tim Pinion’s son Mason, was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Fanconi Anemia. “After the initial shock of the news we started digging into what FA was and most of the information we were finding online left us pretty broken. It wasn’t until we found the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund that we started to realize that there was some hope for Mason’s future.

Lee, NH – Glen Luce of Turner, Maine pulled away from the field in the late stages of Friday night’s Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model 150-lapper at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, New Hampshire to post his second win on the touring series this season.
Luce started from 14th position, patiently making steady progress through the field as Scarborough, Maine’s Garrett Hall set the pace for the first sixty laps. Six-time PASS North champion Johnny Clark took over and looked like a possible winner before Luce and 12th-place starter Travis Benjamin moved into contention with about 30 laps to go.
