The pair swapped the lead again navigating turns one and two before Hoar took the lead back for keeps.  John Donahue of Graniteville started eighth and finished third. Brent Dragon and Joey Polewarczyk completed the top five.  Mark Lamberton of Mooers Forks was sixth. The race had six cautions including a tire check for abnormal tire wear for the whole field on lap 35.

PASS NORTH - Heavy rain arrived at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.  Both PASS and Beech Ridge management were hoping for a break in the weather, but radar showed another band of heavy showers entering the area in the late afternoon and continuing throughout the evening. So, officials felt it was in everyone's best interest to reschedule the event to Saturday July 17.  The PASS Super Late Models are slated for 150 green flag laps,  a 40 lap feature for the PASS Mods and the speedway’s own Sport Series, Wildcat and Road Runner divisions.  Post time on Saturday July 17 is 6:00 PM.

The PASS North Super Late Models will have a regularly-scheduled event on Tuesday, July 13th at Lee USA Speedway in New Hampshire, as well.

SUNOCO NATIONAL TOUR – Due to "circumstances beyond our control" for the Sunoco National Tour, this weekend’s race at Salem Speedway has been cancelled.

“We tried everything we could to make this event happen; unfortunately we couldn’t get the support we needed to have a successful race. I want to thank everyone at Salem Speedway, they have been great to work with, and this is by no means a reflection on Salem Speedway or the great people that work there. This economy is tough and we just have to make the best of it. We look forward to returning to Salem in the future” stated Series President, Ron Varney.
