The Oxford Plains 100
Kruczek Earns ACT Season Sweep at Oxford

Oxford, ME - Newmarket, NH's Bryan Kruzcek became the first repeat winner in the 2019 American-Canadian Tour (ACT) championship season by capturing the Oxford Plains 150 at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, August 24. Kruczek took the lead from West Burke, VT's Jesse Switser just past the halfway mark and never gave up the top spot on his way to an ACT season sweep at the historic 3/8-mile oval.

Berlin, NH's Cody LeBlanc earned the pole in qualifying and led the first eight laps while Kruczek rolled of the grid 13th. Hinesburg, VT's Bobby Therrien, a former ACT winner at Oxford, got inside LeBlanc coming off turn two and took the top spot away on the ninth circuit. Therrien held the point for the next 35 laps through two caution periods as Switser, Kruczek, Scott, Payea, Rich Dubeau, and other top runners slowly worked their way through the field.

Switser found his way to Therrien's bumper at the 40-lap mark, and two laps later, he dove low in the second turn. Although Therrien was able to keep his bumper ahead for one more lap, Switser overtook him on the following circuit.

Therrien began backsliding after getting hung outside on a lap-55 restart as Payea, Stephen Donahue, and Kruczek positioned themselves behind Switser. Following the fourth caution on lap 61 for Craig Bushey's spin, Kruczek went to work in earnest, eventually getting underneath Donahue for the second spot on lap 72.

One lap later, Peyton Lanphear got turned around on the frontstretch and Scott Dragon ended up head-on in the wall in the aftermath. Switser was able to hold of Kruczek on the initial restart, but as the field completed the 76th lap, Kruczek got his nose below Switser entering turn one. When the field came back around to the start/finish line, Kruczek was out in front.

Switser continued to run second during a long green-flag stretch and kept Kruczek within striking distance. Following the seventh caution on lap 108 for tandem spins by Tom Carey III and Jimmy Renfrew Jr., Graniteville's Donahue moved into the second spot as Switser started to fade. Kruczek and Donahue drew away from the field as Scott Payea, Ryan Kuhn, Dubeau, Dylan Payea and others put on a thrilling duel for third on back.

Back-to-back cautions with 14 laps remaining - one for a spin by Rowland Robinson and another for a multi-car pile-up on the restart - gave the field one final crack at Kruczek. Donahue was able to keep the leader honest over the final sprint, but Kruczek proved too much to handle as he rolled to his second career ACT win.

Donahue took the runner-up spot for the second straight event. Colchester, VT's Scott Payea completed the podium in third. Point leader Rich Dubeau of Plainfield, NH came home fourth while Milton, VT's Dylan Payea finished a career-best fifth after starting 26th.

Williamstown, VT's Jimmy Hebert kept pace with Dubeau in the championship chase by coming in sixth. Notre Dame des Pins, QC's Alexendre Tardif came from 30th to seventh as the highest-finishing Quebec racer. Kuhn, Trent Goodrow, and Quinny Welch rounded out the top-10.

Kuhn, Jimmy Renfrew Jr., Mathieu Kingsbury, and Tom Carey III won qualifying heats. LeBlanc and Goodrow took victories in the consolation races.

The ACT Late Model Tour is right back in action Sunday, September 1 with the 41st Coca-Cola Labor Day Classic 200 at Barre, VT's Thunder Road. Post time is 1:30pm for an event that also includes 50-lap features for the track's Lenny's Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers and Burnett Scrap Metals Road Warriors. Admission is $25 for adults and free for kids ages 12 and under.

ACT Returns to Oxford for
Latest Round of Title Showdown
Waterbury, VT - The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) gets back into the point-counting season this Saturday, August 24 at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway. The Oxford Plains 150 is part of a huge night of racing that will thrill fans and set the stage for the final rounds of this year's $10,000-to-win heavyweight championship bout.

Saturday's show is part of the "Night Before the 250" as Oxford Plains sets the stage for the 46th Annual Oxford 250 on Sunday. The ACT Late Model Tour has been part of "Night Before" program three of the last four years, and this year's Saturday night showdown is bigger than ever. ACT is joined by the Tri-Track Open Modified Series, NELCAR Legends, Northeast Classic Lites, Oxford Plains Street Stocks, and Wicked Good Vintage Racing Association for one hot night on the historic 3/8-mile oval.

"We're thrilled to have ACT back for the Oxford 250 weekend again," Oxford Plains Speedway President Tom Mayberry said. "Every time they've visited Oxford the last few years, they've put on a fantastic race, and the outcome is almost never decided until the final laps. Championship implications are once again on the line, so we're sure it's going to be another intense race from start to finish."

With three point-counting races remaining, two racers have stood out above all others in 2019. Plainfield, NH's Rich Dubeau currently leads Williamstown, VT's Jimmy Hebert by 21 points in the overall standings. They're the only two drivers to finish in the top-10 at every event this year. That consistency has put both in position to claim their first ACT title.

The two off-track friends have much in common. Both are former ACT Rookie of the Year honorees, both won lower-division weekly championships before joining ACT, and both scored wins in this year's Summer Kickoff Series. However, with a championship and its $10,000 point fund prize on the line, neither will be cutting the other any breaks once the green flag drops.

One driver who still has a reasonable chance to catch them is Colchester, VT's Scott Payea. The two-time defending champion is 60 points behind Dubeau and will need a lot to go in his favor -- especially after he and Hebert tangled fighting for the lead late in the Midsummer 250 two weeks ago. But his RPM Racing team is the same team that helped him win the last two titles, and they may well have one more push left.

A strong field is expected for this weekend's Oxford Plains 150 as pre-entry numbers are near those for the Midsummer 250. Newmarket, NH's Bryan Kruczek, who won the ACT event at Oxford in April, is going for the season sweep. White Mountain Motorsports Park Late Model point leader Quinny Welch of Groveton, NH will take advantage of the track's weekend off and head to Maine in search of his first ACT win.

Father/son duo John and Stephen Donahue of Graniteville, VT are both attempting to qualify for the event. Berlin, NH's Cody LeBlanc is trying to follow up on a solid showing at the Midsummer 250 while Thompson Speedway regular Michael Benevides is making the trip north from Westerly, RI. Entries have also been received from N. Haverhill, NH's Ryan Olsen and New Gloucester, ME's David MacDonald while Richard Green Racing has stated they will bring Scott Dragon's #16VT to Oxford.

They'll join the rest of the ACT Late Model Tour regulars for 150 green-flag laps of edge-of-your-seat action. E. Bridgewater, MA's Ryan Kyan is running away with the Rookie of the Year title while Milton, VT's Dylan Payea has put together a strong follow-up to last year's Rookie honors. Jonathan Bouvrette, Christopher Pelkey, Scott Coburn, and others are all looking to put the finishing touches on solid seasons with a strong run.

Post time is 4:30pm for the "Night Before the 250" at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, August 24. The Oxford Plains 150 for the ACT Late Model Tour headlines a card that also includes the Tri-Track Track Open Modified Series, NELCAR Legends, Northeast Classic Lites, Oxford Plains Street Stocks, and Wicked Good Vintage Racing Association. The pits open at 9:00am and the front gates open at 10:30am. Admission is $30 for adults, $15 for kids ages 6-12, and $65 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids).

AUGUST 23-25, 2019
Tour-Type Modifieds & ACT Late Models
On Tap For "The Night Before The 250"
NAPLES, ME (August 14) - In less than two weeks, the eyes of the short track racing world will be firmly focused on Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway. On Sunday, August 25th, the biggest single day racing event of the year will take place when the green flag falls for the 46th Annual Oxford 250 and the chance for one driver to take home $50,000. But, as big as the 250 is, it is just a part of a huge weekend of racing planned at Oxford Plains Speedway.

This year, "The Night Before The 250" promises to be the best yet. On Saturday night, August 24th, the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models will return to Oxford Plains Speedway for a 150 lapper, along with a 100-lap event for the Tour-Type Modifieds of the Tri-Track Open Modified Series. Drivers like Anthony Nocella, Andy Shaw, Ron Silk, Matt Hirschman, Woody Pitkat, Matt Swanson, Andy Jankowiak and more are all expected to compete at Oxford Plains in the Tour-Type Modified event.

"We are really excited to be running at Oxford Plains Speedway and are honored to have been invited by Tom Mayberry and his team to run on Oxford 250 weekend," said series managing partner, Wayne Darling. "We know that the Tri-Track drivers and teams will put on a show worthy of this weekend."

While the ACT Late Models will head back to Oxford Plains for the second time this season, one of the stalwart tracks of their schedule. A big field of ACT Late Models are expected at the 3/8-mile speedway, including Spring winner, Bryan Kruczek, and drivers competing for the championship like Rich Dubeau, Jimmy Hebert, Scott Payea and more.

In addition to ACT and the Tri-Track Open Modified Series, Legends, Street Stocks, Classic Lites and Wicked Good will all be in action "The Night Before The 250.' The weekend actually gets underway on Friday night, August 23rd, featuring the PASS Modifieds, Legends, Street Stocks, Outlaws, Rebels, Cruisers, Bandits, Trucks, and 4-Cylinder Figure 8.

The entry list for the 46th Annual Oxford 250 is now over 50 with the additions of former 250-winner, Eddie MacDonald, as well as Ryan Green and Brandon Barker. Competitors will have the opportunity to race for one of the richest winner's purses in asphalt short track racing, with $25,000 to win, plus an additional $25,000 in lap leader money. Last year's winner, Bubba Pollard of Senoia, GA, took home over $28,000 for his efforts in becoming the first southern driver to win the Oxford 250 since 1983. While no one in the last two decades has led more than Joey Polewarcyzk's 205 laps in 2012, if a driver could somehow manage to lead all 250 laps, they would take home $50,000 for the win.

Entry forms and the complete weekend schedules for the 46th Annual Oxford 250 and the Lanier National 200 at Lanier Raceplex in Georgia are available at ProAllStarsSeries.com.

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway, the Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway, and the PASS Commonwealth Classic at Richmond Raceway.
