Oxford, Maine - Reid Lanpher of Manchester
wasn't planning a trip to Oxford Plains Speedway this
weekend, but weather postponements and a rescheduled
Sunday night Budweiser Championship Series program
offered up an opportunity not only to get some seat time
in his EJP Racing Super Late Model, but also prepare for
the 43rd HP Hood Oxford 250, coming up on Sunday, August
28 at 1:30 p.m.
Lanpher, runner-up in last year's
HP Hood Oxford 250, picked up a confidence-boosting win
from the front row in the 50-lap Super Late Model race,
topping the card at the historic Route 26 oval track.
Lanpher prevailed in an early battle versus polesitter
Dave Farrington, Jr., of Jay.
Bobby Timmons of
Windham provided stout competition for Lanpher, making
several attempts to get alongside the eventual winner
before claiming runner-up honors in front of Farrington.
Corey Bubar of Windham and South Paris racer Shawn
Knight rounded out the top five.

Super Late Model 50-lappers this season at Oxford Plains
Speedway. Only reigning track champion and current
championship point leader Timmy Brackett of Buckfield
has won twice this season.
Matt Dufault of Turner
vaulted to the top of the championship point standings
in the Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock
division with a victory in the 30-lap main event.
Dufault, locked in a tight championship race against
fellow Turner resident Calvin Rose, Jr., took to the
outside groove to chase down the frontrunners from his
10th starting position.
Brian Caswell of Portland
led a healthy chunk of the race, battling mostly with
Waterboro's Travis Lovejoy. After Dufault went by both
to claim the lead, Lovejoy managed to claim runner-up
honors in front of Caswell. Guy Childs of Sabattus had
his best run of the season in fourth place. Matt
Williams of Brownfield beat out Rose for fifth.
Jamie Heath of Waterford extended his championship
points lead in the MacDonald Motors of Bridgton Bandits
class with a dominant performance in his 20-lap feature
race. Heath started 10th and got by early race leader
Adam O'Neil less than five laps into the main event.
Second-place points man Tyler Green of Turner was a
distant second-place finisher in the Bandit finale, with
Bill Grover of Waterford claiming third-place honors.
The previous week's winner, Charlie 'Chachy' Hall of
Oxford was fourth, followed by teammate Jacob Hall of
