NEW BRUNSWICK UP NEXT FOR PASS
The Pro All Stars travel north of the border this weekend for their first look at New Brunswick International Speedway. The banked third mile just outside of Fredericton New Brunswick hosts the PASS for the first time on Saturday May 25th.
Expect a large contingent of Canadian pro stock talent to challenge the Pro All Stars regulars for the top spot in the 150 green flag lap event. A strong field of PASS teams have filed pre-entries including 2001 PASS champion and current points leader Sam Sessions, Ben Rowe in his familiar Hi-Tech double zero, and occasional New Brunswick competitor Louis Mechalides. Northern Race Tires Rookie Challenge competitors making the trip include challenge leader Johnny Clark, Cassius Clark, Bobby Allen, Walt Hammond and Russ Hersey. Kenny Wright will be heading north with the Chick family’s’ potent 02, as will Gary Smith and his Uncle Henry’s Monte Carlo. Kirk Thibeau knows the way around New Brunswick, having won their big 250-lap event in 2001 and he’ll be there for the PASS 150. Richie Dearborn, Scott Mulkhern, George Philbrick, Larry Gelinas, GeGe Gravel, Chuck LaChance, Garry Johnson and Wayne Helliwell Jr. will all be looking for success in New Brunswick, as will Chip Keen, Doug Averill and Bub Bilodeau.
The management at New Brunswick International has added and open practice session from 6:30 to 8:30 PM on Friday evening May 24th. Race fans heading north to follow the PASS should note that start time on Saturday is 2 P.M.
