First Super Late Model Score for
Christian III at OPS
Oxford, ME - Ray Christian III raced to his
first-ever Oxford Plains Speedway Super Late Model
triumph Saturday night, topping the Budweiser
Championship Series stock car racing card.
Christian, of Uncasville, Connecticut, was runner-up to
current points leader Curtis Gerry of Waterboro last
Saturday night and followed that up with a third-place
finish in Sunday's Pro All Stars Series 150-lapper.
Victory number one made it three straight podium
finishes for the Nutmeg State invader at the historic
Route 26 oval track.
Ryan Deane of Winterport led
the race briefly before Christian took command. Deane
raced to an impressive runner-up finish, his sixth
top-five run in seven starts thus far in 2019. Turner's
Shawn Martin spent most of the race in the outside
groove and also posted the fastest lap of the race en
route to a third-place finish.
Calvin Rose, Jr.
of Turner battled Christian for the early lead and set
the pace for several laps before eventually crossing the
finish line in fourth place. Strong veteran Tracy Gordon
filled out the top-five rundown. The 50-lap Super Late
Model race went caution-free.
Jordan Russell of
Norway drove to his first-ever Allen's Coffee Flavored
Brandy Street Stock feature race victory, leading all 30
laps to claim the big trophy. Russell's score was not
without challenge, as 2017 division champ Billy Childs,
Jr. spent most of the race right on the rear bumper of
Russell's winning mount.
Zach Bowie of Turner
provided the stiffest test to Russell's supremacy in
this race, claiming runner-up honors ahead of Childs.
Skip Stanley of Oxford outdueled defending champion Matt
Dufault of Turner for fourth position.
Hiscock of Turner wired the Bandits field, leading all
20 laps to win by a comfortable margin over his teammate
and step-brother, Tyler Green of Turner. Oxford's Chad
Wills ended up in third place, followed by Jay's Dean
Jordan and Dustin Salley of Mechanic Falls, the
defending division champion and current points leader.
Kyle Glover prevailed in another wild 20-lap main
event for the Figure 8 racers. It was the first win for
Glover in the class. Glover took the lead away from
points leader Larry Lizotte and outran all rivals to the
checkered flag. Lizotte was the runner-up, with
third-place spoils earned by Greg Durgin of South Paris,
bouncing back from early-race misfortune. Minot's Eric
Hodgkins and Dale Lawrence of Minot rounded out the top
Owen Stuart of Naples won his second Rookie
division main event of the season. Stuart prevailed in a
race-long battle versus point leader Brady Childs of
Leeds, who claimed runner-up honors. Sophie Green of
South Paris earned third-place hardware, ahead of
Norway's Maddy Herrick and Cole Binette of Arundel.
