Sweet’s Streak of Milk Bowl Super Late Model wins Continues


BARRE, VT – Barre’s Nick Sweet reigned in the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models for the third straight year on Vermont Milk Bowl Weekend as part of Mekkelsen RV Milk Bowl Friday on October 2. Sweet snatched the lead from point leader D.J. Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire with 29 laps remaining and pulled away late to win the Prelude to the Milk Bowl 150 at Barre’s Thunder Road.

After starting 11th in the 21-car field, Sweet was content to run mid-pack in the early going. Pole sitter Travis Benjamin of Morrill, Maine set the early pace but surrendered the lead to Shaw following the first caution at lap 18 for Alan Wilson’s turn-one spin.

Hinesburg’s Bobby Therrien then moved to the front, taking the top spot from Shaw on lap 27 after another restart. When the field went green following a lap-39 caution, though, Therrien’s driveshaft failed. Therrien got turned around as he slowed and eventually retired for the night as Shaw re-inherited the lead.

Sweet then made his first big run of the race, moving into the third spot on lap 49. Shaw, Northfield’s Evan Hallstrom, Sweet, and Pittson, Maine’s Ben Ashline then rolled away from the field, with Shaw gapping the other three on multiple occasions only for another yellow to close them up once again.

As the race began to wind down, the cards fell into Sweet’s hands. He got around Hallstrom for the second spot just before caution number eight on lap 119 for an incident involving Jason Corliss and Kate Re. Although Shaw led the first lap following the restart, Sweet put the power down and shot around the outside of him. The veteran then survived back-to-back yellows on laps 128 and 129 before saying goodnight for his fifth win of the season.

Shaw went back-and-forth with Hallstrom in the final circuits before securing second. Hallstrom held off Ashline for third. Jeremy Davis, Ryan Kuhn, Kyle Desouza, Benjamin, Ben Rowe, and Anthony Consantino rounded out the top-10.
