Shawn Martin of Turner won his first
Super Late Model main event of the season and also
earned a guaranteed starting spot in the 46th Annual
Oxford 250 in the 100-lap Budweiser Championship Series
Super Late Model headline event at Oxford Plains
Speedway Saturday night.
Martin, twice a champion
in the Late Model class at OPS, started the race from
seventh position and, in the biggest and most-talented
field of the season, methodically worked his way into
contention, setting up a tremendous battle for the lead
with Kelly Moore, the NASCAR Busch North Series all-time
great from Scarborough.
Martin prevailed and
Moore stayed fast but later spun while battling for
second spot when he may have jumped the curbing on the
inside of the racetrack. DJ Shaw, the reigning Pro All

Lisbon's Rick Spaulding nailed down his first victory of
the year in the 30-lap Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy

the race but three-time winner Kurt Hewins of Leeds made
him earn the win on each and every lap before finishing
a close second.
Shawn Knight of South Paris, who
entered the night on a two-race winning streak,
rebounded from a mid-race altercation to claim a
third-place finish. Mark Turner of Norway crossed the
finish line in fourth position, followed by defending
Street Stock champion Matt Dufault of Turner, who
remains on top of the division rankings.
Lawrence of Minot and hometown Oxford racer Kyle Glover
both won 15-lap races for the Figure 8 class. Lawrence

first main event. Lawrence chased Glover under the
checkered flag in the nightcap, with Harrison's Gary

with a third-place finish in front of Norway's Maddy
Herrick and Sophie Green of South Paris.
Michaud of Caribou outran the Wicked Good Hobby racers
