Sanborn, of East Parsonsfield, Maine, will work with crew chief Brian Burgess.

“I’m really, really happy about it,” Sanborn said. “They’ve got really good cars and they’re really good people. I think we can get those cars to really rip.”

Sanborn replaces Cassius Clark, who won the PASS North Series championship for Hight Motorsports in 2013.

Clark and team owner Corey Hight have both been tight-lipped about the circumstances surrounding the midseason split, with both saying nothing but positive things about the other in published reports. Clark, of Farmington, Maine, joined Hight midway through 2011 and won six races in addition to the championship.

This season, Clark finished second in back-to-back races at Speedway 95 and Autodrome Chaudiere but from there the team had struggled. After finishing 11th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on July 5, they finished 14th at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.

The team skipped the series’ most recent event at Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh, N.Y.

Sanborn will be in the seat when the team returns to the track at Oxford Plains Speedway on Aug. 2.

“I’m really looking forward to being back with Brian,” Sanborn said. “We’ve always stayed friends, always been in touch. Over the last couple of years, we’ve talked just about every week. He’d call me and I’d tell him some of the things I was doing, and I’d call him to get his input on things. So, that part of it is really good.”

The team plans to focus more on preparation and some hand-selected races, according to Sanborn.

In 2010, driving for Richard Moody Racing with Burgess as crew chief, Sanborn finished fourth in the final standings and recorded his first career PASS North Series win at Speedway 51 (formerly Riverside Speedway) in Groveton, N.H. He also won two PASS South races for that team in 2008.

Sanborn returned to his family-owned team in 2011, running a partial schedule for four seasons. This year, he’s been competing full-time in NASCAR Whelen All-American Series weekly competition at Beech Ridge.

Entering Saturday night, Sanborn was sixth in the Pro Series standings at the track with one win.
