The 41st Annual Oxford 250 is quickly coming upon us on July 20th, and the excitement and buzz about the event is at an all time high. With almost fifty cars pre-entered for the mega event, and close to seventy Super Late Models expected, the entry list reads like a Who’s Who in the racing world.

This year’s edition will feature a strong contingent from the PASS South Series as several teams will head north to try and capture the Oxford 250 winner’s trophy. Leading the way will be Preston Peltier from Concord, North Carolina. Peltier has numerous PASS South victories, and is always a threat to win the big events. Tyler Dippel from Walkill, New York has picked up victories in 2014 down south and he is ready for the challenge. Tate Fogleman will be returning to the Oxford 250 for the second consecutive year. Recent PASS South winner, Daniel Hemric has thrown his hat into the ring, as well as Derek Kneeland, and don’t forget two time NASCAR Sprint Cup winner, Steve Park will be aboard the potent Dickie Woodman entry.

The Canadian contingent will be lead by Karl Allard from St. Felicien, Quebec. Allard is always a contender when he enters a race at OPS. Fellow Canadians Kevin Roberge and Matt Matheson are expected to compete as well.

Travis Benjamin will be out to make it two Oxford 250 wins in a row, as he is the favorite heading into the race. Johnny Clark has rebounded nicely in 2014, and now that Joey Doiron has picked up his first win of the season, he too will be a good bet to put on a competitive show. One driver that can never be counted out is Mike Rowe as he’ll be looking for his unprecedented fourth Oxford 250 winner’s trophy. Rowe has also had a solid PASS North season. The winningest driver in 2014 on the PASS Series, DJ Shaw will bring the potent #60 with high hopes of collecting his first 250 win, and of course you can never count out Ben Rowe, or recent ARCA winner, Austin Theriault.

The Oxford weekly Pro Late Model teams will be out in force as the Brackett family, Tim, TJ and Vanna will all be in competition. Point leader Shawn Martin has been on a roll as of late as has Jeremy Davis, who is coming off a Granite State Pro Stock Series victory at Star Speedway recently.

This definitely will be one of the most competitive field of cars that the Oxford 250 has seen in quite some time. There will also be plenty of free camping as the campground opens up Monday, July 14th.

The 2014 edition of the Oxford 250 just received the entry blank from the legendary Steve Park who will be bringing his G Body Parts, Sunoco, Super Late Model to compete in this year’s mega event at Oxford Plains Speedway. Park, a two time Sprint Cup Series winner became the 45th entrant for the race scheduled for Sunday, July 20, 2014 at 2pm.

“I have always wanted to compete in the Oxford 250, stated Park. This is one of the most prestigious racing events in the Northeast, and to be a part of it in 2014 really excites me. I used to attend this race with my dad when I was younger, and I always hoped to drive in this event some time during my life, and now thanks to G Body Parts, Sunoco, New England Racing Fuel and car owner Dickie Woodman, we will be there attempting to add an Oxford 250 win to my resume. I am looking forward to coming up to the State of Maine a little bit early to enjoy what the Oxford area has to offer. Some of my great friends and supporters from Key Parts have also purchased a suite for the Oxford 250 weekend, and I plan on spending a lot of time meeting and greeting their Key Parts family. I haven’t felt this excited in a long time, it’s going to be a great experience.”

New England Race Fuels, John Holland is very excited that they were able to help pull this deal together with Sunoco to support Steve Park and the Dickie Woodman team at the Oxford 250. Holland said this about the situation, “We are very proud to be a part of helping Steve Park return to the Northeast to race at the Oxford 250. Everyone knows that Sunoco is a major player in the motorsports arena, and they are very excited about Steve Park once again racing up north. Steve is a great spokesman for the sport, and we love his New England racing heritage. He has worked hard all his life to be the best racer he could be, including a pair of Sprint Cup wins, and now we have the opportunity to help support his Oxford 250 efforts in 2014. This support fits perfectly in Sunoco’s racing plans.”

PASS President, Tom Mayberry is also excited about Park coming to the Oxford 250. “It’s always great to have a driver with the credentials of Steve Park enter your race, but this one is extra special as he is a grassroots racer who paid his dues here in the Northeast. He has raced everything from Go-karts to Sprint Cup Cars and has been successful in everything he has competed in, and has never forgotten where he came from. I am extremely proud to add Steve’s name to the entry list of the Oxford 250.”

The 41st edition of the Oxford 250 will take place on Sunday, July 20th at 2pm featuring 250 green flag laps of racing for the ultra fast Super Late Models.

Rookie Dippel Taking PASS National Points Lead
To 41st Annual Oxford 250
NAPLES, ME (July 17) – Just over a year ago, Tyler Dippel had virtually no asphalt racing experience. On Sunday, the Wallkill, NY rookie will head into the 41st Annual Oxford 250 with the points lead in the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model National Championship standings.

At just 14-years-old, Dippel is one of the top young prospects in short track racing, not only on asphalt, but also on dirt. Dippel cut his teeth racing on the tough dirt tracks of the Northeast and has become one of the top Small Block Modified drivers in New York, competing at tracks such as Middletown, Accord, and Lebanon Valley. And, he has not forgot his dirt track roots, still competing regularly when his schedule allows.

But, it is his experience racing on the tough PASS South Super Late Model tour in the Carolinas and Virginia that has allowed Dippel the opportunity to come to Oxford Plains Speedway with a virtually guaranteed spot in the 250. By virtue of his strong runs at the first two PASS National Series events at Greenville-Pickens and Hickory in the spring, Dippel has the points as he prepares for his first Oxford 250.

“I’m really excited, the 250 is probably the biggest race I’ve ever ran and I’m really looking forward to it,” said Dippel. “It’s closer to home, I’m looking forward to having pit stops, and like I said, it’s the biggest race I’ve ran so far.”

Unlike the shorter races he was accustomed to on dirt, Dippel believes his experience racing 125 to 150 lap PASS South races will prepare him for the test the Oxford 250 is so famous for. Dippel currently sits fourth in PASS South Super Late Model points, leading laps at the prestigious Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory and finishing in the top five three times so far this season.

“The PASS South races have helped me a lot as far as learning how to save my stuff and I think we’re getting there and are prepared for the 250,” said Dippel. “Crew Chief Buggy [Pletcher] always has a pretty good car for that race.”

On Sunday, July 20, 2014, the 41st edition of the Oxford 250 will be run, and in conjunction with the premiere Super Late Model 250 lap main event, The PASS Mods will be racing a 75 lapper which will pay $1,000, and carry a brand new sponsors name with it. PASS and Oxford Plains Speedway would like to welcome Mayhan Antiques and More as a new marketing partner.

“This will be a big test for the PASS Modifieds and to see a new sponsor come on board for this event is very exciting news, stated General Manager, Dick Therrien. This will be the biggest payday of the season for the PASS Mods, and with this support from Mayhan Antiques and More, it is sure to be an exciting event for the fans and the drivers alike. John Mayhan is an avid supporter of the PASS Modifieds and we appreciate him coming forward to sponsor this race. John is also donating a new, solid oak, Adirondack Chair to the winner, plus there will be gift certificates and t-shirts to the top three PASS Mod finishers”

The PASS Mod 75 lapper is part of the Oxford 250 weekend which starts on Friday night, July 18th with the PASS Sportsman and PASS Mods headlining the card on Sun Journal night. Saturday, July 19th offers up a great night of racing as Dunkin Donuts presents the NEMA Midgets, and NEMA Lites, plus the all new Dave’s Small Engine Repair PASS Northeast Late Model Series 125. Sunday, July 20th will feature Super Late Models racing 250 green flag laps in a PASS National point’s event. Sunday will also feature the Mayhan Antiques and More PASS Mod 75.

Mayhan Antiques and More is located at 24 Johnson Hill Road in Poland, Maine. Mayhan Antiques and More is a small family owned business that specializes in furniture, new to antiques. John, wife Jen, and daughter Nicole take great pride in their hobby styled business, and because of their low overhead, most items in their home-based store cost less than $200. The Mayhan’s have been a proud sponsor of PASS Mod drivers, Andy Shaw and Evan Armington. John Mayhan has been an avid supporter of racing here in Maine as he helped run the charity auction at the Northeast Motorsports Expo for many years, as well as hosting a local radio show on WOXO with Bob Morris at the old Bull Ring Steak House.

Southern Stars Prep For Return
To 41st Annual Oxford 250
NAPLES, ME (June 10) – With a little less than two months before on track activities begin for the 41st Annual Oxford 250, short track racers from across North America are currently making preparations for one of the biggest events of the year. Over 70 Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model teams are expected this year to attempt to make the biggest single day event in motorsports. And, with $25,000 going to the race winner, plus an additional $25,000 up for grabs in lap leader bonus money, racers will travel quite a distance to try and etch their names in the prestigious Oxford 250 record book.

When the Oxford 250 first began in 1974, it was commonplace to see legendary Southern racers like Butch Lindley, Jack Ingram, Tommy Houston, Harry Gant, Tiny Lund, and others make the trek to New England from the Carolinas. That tradition returned in 2013 when PASS South competitors such as Jay and Tate Fogleman, Daniel Hemric, Kevin Powell, and Spencer Davis traveled North to compete in their first Oxford 250. While Hemric made an impressive run from the back to finish in the top 10, it was Jay Fogleman who parlayed a third place finish in the Oxford 250 to his second straight PASS National Championship.

“I always look forward to going to the 250,” said Fogleman. “It reminds me in a lot of ways of the way things were in the South during the 80s. The fans of the 250, those that come down from Canada, they love racing and it’s an atmosphere that I really enjoy. The fans up there love short track racing, they appreciate good racing, and they always turn out for the 250.”

Another former PASS National Champion who will be making his first trip to the Oxford 250 in 2014 will be Preston Peltier. Peltier, who grew up in California and then moved to North Carolina when he began working for Hendrick Motorsports, has been one of the stalwarts of PASS South since the series first began back in 2006. With 10 career PASS South Super Late Model wins to his credit, the series all-time wins leader is looking forward to his first experience at Oxford Plains.

“It’s a place we’ve never been before and we’re really looking forward to it,” said Peltier. “We’ve been able to race at a few other tracks in New England similar to Oxford, so hopefully that will help. We’re just hoping for some good luck.”

For his first trip to the Oxford 250, Peltier will be paired with legendary car builder Robert Hamke. The duo is going for broke bringing a brand new motor, chassis, and body combination in the hopes of taking home a win. Peltier believes driving the new Hamke Dodge Challenger #74 will provide him the best opportunity to go to victory lane.

“Most of these tracks that lack grip, you don’t need the horsepower, so that came into play for us going with the new motor and the Challenger body,” said Peltier. “The body looks really cool so we thought we would give it a shot and see what we could do with it.”

Peltier and Fogleman will not be alone in making the trip up from the South to the Oxford 250. Tate Fogleman will again join his dad as he looks to build on his 25th place finish from a year ago. Three-time PASS South winner in 2014, Daniel Hemric, will once again join the Woodman Racing team that he drove for last year to a top 10 finish. Derek Kneeland hails from New England, but lives in North Carolina and serves as a spotter for Kyle Larson with Chip Ganassi Racing. Kneeland had a strong 15th place finish in 2013 and will team with Gary Crooks Racing as he looks to build on that performance. PASS National Championship points leader Tyler Dippel will be making his Oxford 250 debut this year. The dirt modified racer from New York has adapted well to asphalt and currently sits fourth in the PASS South Super Late Model standings.

The PASS Super Late Models will not be alone in making the 41st Annual Oxford 250 a celebration of short track racing. A great slate of divisions is set to race starting on Friday, July 18 with the PASS Sportsman, PASS Modifieds, Outlaw Sportsman, Street Stocks, Rebels, Sport Trucks, Cruisers and Ladies, plus practice for the PASS Super Late Models.

On Saturday, July 19 with the PASS Super Late Models will get three rounds of practice followed by racing in the evening for the PASS Northeast Late Models, NEMA Midgets, NEMA Lites, Outlaw Sportsman, Street Stocks, Wicked Good Racers, and Classic Lights.

On Sunday, July 20, pit gates will open bright and early at 7 AM with a full day of on track activities including practice and heat race action for the PASS Super Late Models, followed by features for the PASS Modifieds, Outlaw Series, Street Stocks, Legends, and the 41st Annual Oxford 250.

FOR 2014 OXFORD 250
With the 2014 edition of the Oxford 250 lurking just over the horizon on July 20, 2014, the first entrant has filed his application for the crown jewel event. Buckfield, Maine’s, Tim Brackett has filed the number one entry and is very proud to be the first entrant of this year’s edition.

“We have been in the sport of auto racing since 1978, the 52 year old racer explained. We love racing as a family here at the Track, and always look forward to the Oxford 250. We had a great run in 2013, and can’t wait for the big race in 2014. I finished sixth last year, and can hopefully crack at least a top five this year!”

Brackett has a pair of OPS championships under his belt, the 2005 Pro Stock title, and the 2010 Late Model championship, and has great family ties with Oxford, as his son TJ won the Pro Late Model championship in 2013, and finished 14th in last year’s 250, while Tim placed second in the final standings, and Tim’s daughter Vanna finished third in the standings, and also was the first female to win a premiere division feature at Oxford. The family also set a record for the first time a family finished one, two & three in the Track’s premiere division’s final point standings.

This year’s edition of the Oxford 250 will take place on the July 17th to July 20th weekend. There will be a special night of racing on Thursday, July 17th, as the schedule for that day’s events will be announced in the near future. Friday night will be Sun Journal Newspaper night featuring the PASS Mods, PASS Sportsman and several other support divisions. Dunkin’ Donuts headlines Saturday’s huge card of racing with Round #2 of the new PASS Northeast Late Model Series going 125 laps for $4,000 to win, or the option of taking $3,000 to win and having a guaranteed starting spot in Sunday’s Oxford 250.

Oxford Plains Speedway President, Tom Mayberry is pleased to announce that the NEMA Midgets (Northeastern Midget Association) will be part of the giant Oxford 250 weekend, July 18th through 20th. This will mark the first time in several years that the Midgets have appeared at Oxford.

The NEMA Midgets are a compact winged racecar with a very high power to weight ratio. With up to 400 horsepower and weighing approximately 1,000 pounds, Midgets are among the fastest cars on oval tracks ½ mile and under. Midget racing has long provided a pivotal role in the development of some of the nation’s finest and most successful drivers.

The NEMA Midgets and NEMA LITES will be competing on the Saturday, July 19th portion of the Oxford 250 weekend card.

A dream came true this past Sunday night for Morrill, Maine’s, Travis Benjamin, as he scored the biggest victory of his career, winning the 40th Annual TD Bank 250 at the beautiful Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine. Benjamin grabbed the lead from Joey Doiron on lap 209 and raced to the victory by 1.167 seconds over Doiron.

The race started out a little sluggish as a couple of early cautions for minor spins dotted the event while polesitter, TJ Brackett lead the first thirteen laps collecting $100 a lap in bonus money, before Ben Rowe assumed the lead until lap 131 when Doiron raced to the front. Rowe faded towards the middle of the pack as his tires wore out, but not before he collected $11,100 of lap money.

Corey Bubar had upset on his mind as he grabbed the lead from Doiron for a couple of laps before Cassius Clark took to the point passing him on lap 150. Clark’s lead was short lived as Travis Benjamin grabbed the lead in traffic and looked like he was a sure winner until Doiron tracked him down and regained the lead on lap 194.

The pair swapped the lead until Benjamin made the move of a lifetime splitting a pair of lapped cars, making it through a non-existent hole leaving Doiron in the dust. Durham, North Carolina’s, Jay Fogleman battled Doiron for second to the checkers but came up several car lengths short.

When the checkers flew it was Benjamin, followed by Doiron, Fogleman, Austin Theriault and Cassius Clark. Tim Brackett, Ben Rowe, Alan Tardiff, Daniel Hemric and Spencer Davis completed the top ten.

Six qualifying heats were held for the sixty-seven cars in attendance, and winners included TJ Brackett, Bryan Kruczek, Ben Rowe, Cassius Clark, DJ Shaw, and Corey Bubar. Consolation checkers flew for Glen Luce, Derek Kneeland and Trevor Sanborn and the last chance feature saw Ricky Rolfe capture the popular victory.

Sixty seven cars attempted to qualify for the TD Bank 250, and forty-one made the field. The field included drivers from eight states and three provinces of Quebec. Seven southern teams made the trek north, with Jay Fogleman having the most success.
