Sweet wins PASS Midsummer Classic 150 at White Mountain


NORTH WOODSTOCK, NH – Barre, VT’s Nick Sweet showed once again that you can never count him out as he roared to his fourth Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model win of the season at N. Woodstock, NH’s White Mountain Motorsports Park on Sunday, August 9. Sweet overpowered defending champion D.J. Shaw on a restart with 11 laps to go to capture the PASS Midsummer Classic 150 as seen live on the Northeast Sports Network.

As a previous 2020 winner, Sweet started 11th on the grid for the main event. The veteran steadily worked his way through the field, moving into the top-five on lap 29 and grabbing the third spot from polesitter Ben Ashline on lap 52 with Ben Rowe right behind him. At that point, Sweet trailed only Joey Doiron and Shaw, who had combined to set a torrid pace in the early going.

Sweet kept the pressure on, moving past Shaw on lap 64 as the top four raced under a blanket. When the second caution came out on lap 71 for Scott McDaniel’s stalled machine, Sweet lined up outside Doiron and got the break when the green flag flew once again.

Shaw followed Sweet around the outside for second as the handle started going away on Doiron’s car. The leaders than chased each other through traffic, at one point putting more than half the field at least one lap in arrears and leaving third-place Rowe in the dust.

As the race passed the 100-lap mark, Shaw decided it was time to make his move, going to work on Sweet and eventually snatching the top spot back on lap 106. Just as Shaw was pulling away, though, the third caution came out with 19 laps to go for debris on the back chute.

Shaw was able to handle Sweet on the restart and seemed in the catbird seat for his first win of the season. But with 11 laps to go, Rowe suddenly slowed in turn two with a right front tire going down, bringing out the final yellow and stacking the field up once again. This time, Sweet showed his full muscle, wheeling his Maddog Motorsports car around the outside groove and back into the lead. The defending champion was no match over the final 11 laps as Sweet picked up his third PASS win at White Mountain this year and padded his points lead.

Jeremy Davis came on strong late to win a duel with Ashline for the third position. Derek Ramstrom, Rowe, Travis Benjamin, Gabe Brown, Austin Teras, and Johnny Clark completed the top-10.
