PASS Retuns to Speedway 660 Saturday Night
D.J. Shaw will attempt to do what no other driver in Pro All Star Series has ever done before, when he comes to Speedway 660 this Saturday evening. The North Conway, New Hampshire driver will be gunning for an unprecedented fourth consecutive PASS victory.
“This team has been incredible this year and when everything is going right you have to take advantage of it and that’s just what we’re doing” Shaw said last Saturday night, from the White Mountain Motorsports Park winner’s circle, after his third victory in a row. “I had a lot of fun racing with Johnny Clark and was lucky we didn’t get a caution at the end, but now we’ve got to focus on keeping this thing going when we head to Speedway 660 up in Canada next weekend.”
Shaw and the #60 Precision JLM Racing Team hope to make history in the Geary Woods on Saturday night. But it won’t be easy, because his main rival this season has won the last three PASS events in New Brunswick. Johnny Clark also has two Auto Value 250 championships on his resume. But Shaw knows how to get around Speedway 660 too. He finished 2nd in the 2012 Auto Value 250, behind defending PASS champ Cassius Clark.
“There’s certainly a buzz in the air around this weekend’s PASS Super Late Model race and everybody is anxious to see if D.J. Shaw can make an historic run here” said Speedway 660’s Max Roy. “It’s far from a done deal, because the rest of the Pro All Stars, a couple of Re/Max Group Four Realty Pro Stocks and perhaps a few Maritime Pro Stock Tour drivers will provide some stiff competition.”
In addition to his win last weekend in the White Mountains, Shaw has picked up victories at Autodrome Chaudiere in Quebec and Star Speedway in Epping New Hampshire. His team knows the significance of this weekend’s race and is working hard to prepare for another winning run.
“We were disappointed that the 2013 Speedway 660 PASS race was rained out and we’re looking forward to seeing all of our Canadian fans this weekend when we go back to New Brunswick” Shaw said. “Two years ago we broke a shock and settled for seventh, but this year the Precision JLM Racing Team is anxious to keep our winning streak alive and like our chances at 660 on Saturday night.”
Race fans will also be treated to action in the Martins Home Heating Sportsman and DMR Auto Sales & Service Street Stock Divisions. One of the biggest crowds of the season is expected to be at Speedway 660 for the only Maritime race on the Pro All Star Series 2014 schedule. Racing gets underway at 7PM.
Adult ticket prices are $30; Youth tickets, for kids between eight and 15 are $15 and; admission is always free for Speedway 660’s youngest race fans, seven and under. Adult pit passes are available for an additional $2. Family passes are not available for this event.

Speedway 660 is one of Canada’s premier stock car racing facilities. Located in New Brunswick’s Fredericton region, it attracts race teams and fans from the Maritimes, Maine and Quebec.

SpeedWeekend 2014, one of the most prestigious short track events in eastern North America, is always a fitting way to wrap up Speedway 660’s racing season.
