Oxford, ME – Nick Sweet slipped past early leader Corey Bubar near the midpoint of the of the Coastal Auto Parts Pro All Stars Series (PASS) 150 at Oxford Plains Speedway (OPS) Sunday afternoon. The win is the fifth career triumph for the Barre, Vermont driver and the second in three races of the PASS Tour in 2020.

Sunday’s race at OPS was held without fans but was broadcast by NSNsports out of Vermont.
Worst to First, Griffith Prevails!
North Woodstock NH – Twenty-nine cars took the green flag for round two of the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model 2020 season at White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) on a hot, sweltering day with temperatures in the mid to high 80’s. Starting dead last in the field was the familiar 12G of Derek Griffith. 150 grueling laps later, Griffith pulled off the very rare worst-to-first accomplishment to take home the checkers on the high banked oval. Chasing him across the line was Tamworth’s Jeremy Davis and teenager Gabe Brown to fill out the podium. Griffith was understandably pleased with the result.
Cut Tire for Eddie MacDonald Ends Solid Run at WMMP in the PASS SLM
Eddie MacDonald opened the PASS North Super Late Model Series at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, NH on Sunday with a disappointing end to the 150 lap event. With approximately 30 laps to go the Hancock Electric/Grimm Construction Chevy cut down a right front tire while running fourth.
After avoiding contact with the outside wall, Eddie Mac made it to the pit for a new tire then returned to the track two laps down where he would finish 19th in the 30 car field. Prior to the cut tire Eddie Mac was poised for a solid top five finish in the Dave Lemieux owned Chevy.

WMMP to Hold Pay-Per-View Doubleheader Without Fans June 6 & 7
Northeast Sports Network to Broadcast Weekly Racing & PASS Events
N. Woodstock, NH – The 2020 White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) racing season is finally getting underway. Track officials have announced plans to hold two events without fans on Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7.
The doubleheader includes the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model season opener on Sunday with WMMP’s weekly divisions set for action on Saturday. The Northeast Sports Network (NSN) will stream both events online via pay-per-view.
The WMMP racing season had been on hold due to New Hampshire health and safety orders in place to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. However, it was determined that events without fans in attendance could happen with strict guidelines in place. Thanks to the NSN pay-per-view broadcast, fans can experience both events from the comfort and safety of their homes.
Event Now to Debut in 2021
Waterbury, VT and Naples, ME – American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Star Series (PASS) officials have announced the 2020 Northeast Classic at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) has been cancelled. The inaugural edition of the event will now take place on April 16 and 17, 2021.
Despite the hopes of series officials, and a previous postponement to May 8 and 9, it became clear in recent days that holding the Northeast Classic in 2020 was no longer practical. The state of New Hampshire recently extended its State of Emergency declaration, and indications are that New Hampshire’s Stay at Home order will also be extended beyond the current May 4 expiration date.
Furthermore, the U.S.-Canada border remains closed to non-essential business, which would prevent the large amount of Quebec-based teams and fans who planned to attend the Northeast Classic from doing so. With the current health and safety concerns, and other postponements and uncertainty throughout the Northeast racing world making rescheduling even more difficult, the decision was made to wait until 2021 for the debut of the highly-anticipated event.
