Busch North Series, NASCAR Touring:

Mike Johnson collected his first win of the season and the fourth victory of his career when he won the PTM Racing 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, Me. Johnson is the fifth different winner in the first five races this season.

Goodyear is the sole tire provider for the Series and, for the fifth race in as many outings, a Series driver set a record in qualifying. Brian Hunter won the first Bud Pole of his career when he averaged 77.912 mph on his qualifying lap.

Johnson's margin of victory was just .17 of a second. He was able to run the distance without pitting, one of the few frontrunners to do so.

Matt Kobyluck, who leads the driver's standings, finished second. Andy Santerre took third, Kelly Moore was fourth and Eddie MacDonald earned his first top-five finish by taking fifth.
