OXFORD PLAINS SPEEDWAY
ANNOUNCES THE GRAND MARSHAL
FOR THE 2019 OXFORD 250
NAPLES, ME (July 12) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President and Oxford Plains Speedway owner Tom Mayberry is pleased to announce the 2019 Grand Marshal for the Oxford 250. Bob Bahre, former owner of Oxford Plains Speedway, has agreed to serve as the Grand Marshal for this year's event.

Bob Bahre purchased Oxford Plains Speedway in 1964. He ran it with his brother Dick Bahre until they sold it in 1987. It was under Bob's leadership that the first Oxford 250 came to be. It began in 1974 as a 200 lap event, being expanded to 250 laps the following year.

Bob and his family made many improvements to the track under his ownership. Bob is known as a successful businessman in the Oxford Hills area and beyond.

"We are extremely honored that Bob will be this year's Grand Marshall, 55 years after he took ownership of the track," said Tom Mayberry, the current owner of Oxford Plains Speedway.

Following his time at Oxford Plains, Bahre went on to build New England's only superspeedway in Loudon, NH, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The 46th Annual Oxford 250 will be held on August 23-25 and nearly 50 PASS Super Late Models are currently entered. For additional information, please go to

AUGUST 23-25, 2019
Short Track Stars Look To Stop Pollard
In This Weekend's Oxford 250
NAPLES, ME (August 21) - With just days left before on track activity begins at Oxford Plains Speedway for the 46th Annual Oxford 250 and hundreds of campers already dot the property, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model teams are making final preparations for one of the biggest events on the racing calendar. While many eyes will be on Georgia's Bubba Pollard as he attempts to defend his Oxford 250 crown, the short track star might not enter Sunday's race as the favorite. 2017 winner Curtis Gerry of Waterboro, ME, has concentrated all his efforts on competing at Oxford Plains this season, with several wins in weekly competition and a PASS North win there as well. Championship contender, Garrett Hall sits just 15 points behind the 3-time PASS North titlist, DJ Shaw, largely in part due to his two wins at Oxford Plains earlier this year. But, after advancing from the last chance race a year ago before going on to win the 250, Pollard is still the driver many feel will be the one to beat in 2019.

"Before the race I was a nervous wreck just not knowing what to expect or how these guys race," says Pollard, who will be driving the Harrison's Workwear Ford #26. "After we started and got about 50 laps in, I was like, these guys are good and race with respect. I had a blast."

Pollard has won virtually every major Super Late Model event from Florida to Washington state and even Canada. But with nearly 100 checkered flags over the last decade and more accolades than one could count, Pollard says his experience at the 2018 Oxford 250 was an eye opener.

"I've traveled up and down the road and raced at a lot of places, but the Oxford 250 is probably the coolest race I've ever been a part of," says Pollard. "I'm excited to get there this weekend and race in front of that awesome crowd.

Competitors will once again 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. Pollard took home over $28,000 last year for his efforts in becoming the first southern driver since Tommy Ellis in 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.

The huge weekend of racing at Oxford Plains Speedway as part of the 250 on August 23-25 will see a variety of cars from across the spectrum of short track racing. On Saturday, August 24, the ACT Late Models will return to Oxford Plains Speedway, along with the Tour-Type Modifieds of the Tri-Track Open Modified Series. Drivers like Ron Silk, Matt Hirschman, Woody Pitkat, Matt Swanson, Andy Jankowiak and more are all expected to compete on The Night Before The 250 at Oxford Plains. The complete weekend schedule is located at ProAllStarsSeries.com.

This year's entry list has grown to nearly 60 and features some of the best short track racers in North America, including former Oxford 250 winners, Mike and Ben Rowe, Travis Benjamin, Joey Polewarcyzk, Eddie MacDonald, Glen Luce, Curtis Gerry, Bubba Pollard, and Scott Robbins. Former PASS champions, Johnny Clark, DJ Shaw, and Cassius Clark have also entered, along with defending PASS National champion, Derek Griffith and 2019 national title contenders Mike Hopkins, Ray Christian, III, and Jake Johnson.

Entry forms for the 46thAnnual 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.

Oxford 250 Preview
OXFORD - The time is finally upon us for the biggest Super Late Model event of the year for the New England area - The 46th annual Oxford 250 held at Oxford Plains Speedway. There are over 50 drivers signed up to try to make it into the big show but who knows how many other drivers will show up and surprise the fans! 10 of this year's entries have won the race including last year's winner Bubba Pollard and 2017 winner Curtis Gerry. It's been a big season for Curtis Gerry of Waterboro he's won 3 PASS races at Oxford and 3 weekly 50 lappers. The 7G is one of the favorites to win this year.

"Our season has gone great so far! We are currently the 2019 Oxford (track) Champion and we have won 6 races, we have a lot of momentum and great confidence in the cars setup, with no issues I believe we could be sitting in victory lane again in this year's 250." Gerry had to say about his season.

There's a lot that goes into preparing for the 250 but Gerry seems to just be sticking with his usual weekly routine: "Just keep focused on the maintenance of the car and make sure it is ready to go."

While Gerry has been one of the most dominant drivers at Oxford this year if he had to pick another driver to win the Oxford 250 he said: "based off performance at Oxford this season either Nick Sweet or Ben Rowe."

Gerry had a great car last year but ran into bad luck getting together with Cassius Clark towards the end and finished in 37th, so hopefully luck is on his side come this weekend.

Another driver that's been very dominant at Oxford this year has been Garrett Hall of Scarborough. He's won two PASS races at Oxford this season and he's currently 2nd in points on the PASS tour, only 15 points behind DJ Shaw. Hall seems to be staying humble though and doesn't want to get ahead of himself.

"My season so far this year has gone well with the two wins at Oxford but I don't consider it great. I feel like our chances are good as long we have a competitive car, I feel like last year was a success but also felt like it slipped away from us so hoping we can use last year as an advantage towards this year. "

He's had good runs at the Oxford 250 the past few years but has just ended up using the car up too early. Last year he still ended up finishing in 4th place a career best for him.
"I have been preparing for this year a lot with making sure I'm confident in myself, car and team that we can have a great and successful weekend, of course with a lot of fun involved. I've been running and exercising to get in better shape not only physically but mentally as well for this year's race. I know that we as a whole team will be well prepared and ready to prove that we can get it done."

Hall is one of those drivers that you typically lose track of during the race then sneaks up to the front and steals the show. His picks to win the race are the drivers that are the fastest wherever they go.
"There's over 20 to 30 cars and teams that are capable of winning. I would say some of the favorites from a fans perspective would be the 7g car, Shaw, Nick Sweet, Reid Lanpher, anyone that has been running weekly will be good for being able to keep with the track and the changes over the year."

One Oxford weekly guy that has a great momentum going into 250 Weekend is Calvin Rose Jr. of Turner. He's currently 2nd in points in the track SLM division and has one win under his belt.

"The season started off rocky but with a lot of hard work and dedication we have the car back to where we need it and have had a pretty good second part of the year with a win and a second."

Rose has qualified for the past two years for the Oxford 250 finishing 32nd in 2017 and 16th place last year. Anything could happen at the 250. Sometimes the fastest cars don't finish, and sometimes cars you weren't even sure were going to make it in finish top 10.

"We haven't done a whole lot of preparing yet, we have one more weekly race then we'll go through the car and make sure everything is up to shape." Calvin Rose Jr said August 8th when asked how he's preparing this year.

Like most of the others when they were asked who they thought would be in contention to win this year ,he said the 7g of Gerry.


"I feel the big favorite is the 7g he is stout this year and is always the one to beat. I think it'll be a good race with him and Bubba Pollard."

Calvin Rose Jr hasn't run many long-distance races this season at Oxford so we will see if he has what it takes to keep up with the PASS SLMs at the 250.

Last year's track champion Gabe Brown of North Conway, NH will be at Oxford this Sunday trying to turn his season around. After winning his track championship he decided to race PASS full time in 2019 and he hasn't had great finishes as of lately.

"The beginning of 2019 was pretty good and we had high hopes on this year, we've run into some pretty big issues in the last couple races with a rear end going bad and blowing the motor at the last oxford race. After the test this last weekend I strongly believe the cars really good and I know my crew is better than it's ever been going into the 250. So it's on me, and my aggressiveness to make the show and perform well." explained Brown who finished 33rd in last years 250.

Gabe Brown drives a Dale Shaw race car and has found great mentors in Dale and DJ Shaw so he has a great team to help prepare this year.

"Dale ,DJ, Steph, my dad and I all work hard to get my car ready week in and week out, but the 250 has never been good to me, so we are working extra hard this year to make sure everything is top notch and no failures will happen. We changed everything in the driveline. If something fails, it's not because we missed it."

No driver wants to see someone else win but Gabe Brown thinks DJ Shaw, Nick Sweet and Gerry would be his picks to be up there in contention.

"At the 250 you can't go by speed, it's all about luck in this race, pit strategy and such. It's just whoever comes out on top really." Brown added about who could possibly win this year.

One of Brown's biggest mentors DJ Shaw of North Conway finished 6th last year at the 250, This year he will be back trying to nail down the win. Shaw is currently the PASS points leader and has won 3 races this season but none at Oxford.

"2019 has gone pretty good for us, having 3 wins at this point is more than we've had in a full season in years so I think our offseason work has been a step in the right direction. We've been hit or miss at Oxford so we just need to work hard to get where we need to be and if we can do that we will have a chance to win!"

Similar to Curtis Gerry, Shaw isn't doing too much to prepare that he doesn't do on a regular basis besides extra maintenance and making the car look better.Shaw believes the obvious picks to win will be Gerry or Nick Sweet but he thinks there's some drivers people might sleep on.
"A couple sleeper picks I have would be Scott Robbins and Joey Pole, Scott had great speed at the end of the last race and Pole always puts together a good run at the 250 so those two I think can surprise some people!"

Another sleeper pick for the Oxford 250 would be Derek Griffith of Hudson, NH. Griffith also has 3 PASS wins this season and he's currently 4th in the PASS points. He hasn't had very good luck at Oxford this season but anything could happen.

"We're happy with the season so far for sure, I think our chances are the best they have been out of all the previous 250s!" Griffith finished 21st during last year's 250 and, besides his races at Oxford this season, has been very consistent this year.
Griffith thinks Gerry is the one to beat this year but won't be counting out Bubba Pollard after his run last year at the Oxford 250.

"A lot of the good guys come to this show so it will be a good race!"

Drivers and fans from all over will be attending races this weekend to see who will get the big win on Sunday night. Come see if anyone beat Curtis Gerry and Bubba Pollard this year to be crowned the 2019 Oxford 250 champion. Green flag drops at 1:30 PM this Sunday August 25th!
