PASS North Set To Begin Sunday At Thompson’s Icebreaker
NAPLES, ME (April 5) – After a long winter break, that has seen some venture south to compete, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Model drivers from across New England and Canada are ready to tackle Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park this weekend for the first race of 2018.
In addition to being the first action of the season for New England’s top short trackers, the 44th Annual Icebreaker also serves as the second race of the PASS National Championship Series. Following the first event held at South Carolina’s Dillon Motor Speedway in February, race winner, Derek Griffith, finds himself leading 5-Time PASS National Champion, Ben Rowe, by just two points heading to Thompson.
The Benjamin Motorsports team decided to run one more race this season and it was in Hickory North Carolina. It was a non points race but paid $15,000 to win and was a national race so that meant there would be cars from the north and the south battling for the big pay day.
This would also be the first race on the teams brand new car. The first practice there where a few little problems the team would have to solve but after that the car was good. In the PASS south series they use time trials to set the field for the feature race.
The team would qualify 2nd out of 35 cars. On the PASS south series they also do a redraw for all the cars in the top 10. Travis would redraw 8th. So the 7 car would have to start in the 8th position for the 300 lap main event.
The benjamin Motorsports team went into the final race of the season at Oxford last weekend with a 25 point lead. That meant Travis had to finish less than 12 positions behind Glen Luce of Turner. With 46 cars in attendance that wasn’t going to be an easy race.
After practice the team was very happy with the car posting the fast time of the day. Than the team won there qualifying race and the team was excited to start the 150 lap feature.
