Doiron Looking For More PASS Success
EPPING, N.H. — This Saturday is opening day for New Hampshire’s Star Speedway, and the tough little quarter-mile will do it in style by hosting the Pro All Stars Series North super late models.
The action at the Webber family’s Epping bull ring is always fast and furious. The 150 green flag laps go by in a heart beat, and a good run in the qualifying races goes a long way toward a strong feature finish.
One driver who is going his work cut out for him is Joey Doiron. He won’t start better than 11th Saturday. Why? Because Doiron captured his first PASS North victory last Saturday at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, and PASS feature winners never start the following race inside the top 10.
He’ll have to battle his way to the front, but Doiron knows his way around Star Speedway and there’s little doubt he will challenge for the win. Doiron and Lonnie Sommerville sit tied at the top of the PASS North points after the season opener.
Johnny Clark, Ben Rowe and Mike Rowe find themselves outside the top 10 in the early season standings and all three will be looking to get back in the hunt at Star Speedway.
Derek Ramstrom captured the 2011 PASS North event at Star Speedway, taking the lead for the final time with just two laps remaining. Ramstrom is coming off a solid third-place finish in the PASS North season opener and there is no doubt that he is forward to a return trip to the track where he has scored two of his three PASS North victories.
Joining the PASS North late models at Star Speedway Saturday will be the PASS Modified Series along with Star Speedway’s own outlaw late models, strictly stocks and roadrunners.
Qualifying races take the green at 4:30 p.m.
