Lanpher Ends Drought &
Makes a Special Phone Call

Story by: Brandon Paul, Speed51.com Editor
-
Reid Lanpher's Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North victory Saturday afternoon at Oxford Plains Speedway (ME) was meaningful in more ways than one. In addition to snapping a one-year winless drought dating back to this same race last October, Lanpher dedicated the victory to a long-time supporter who is currently battling cancer.

While celebrating a dominant victory, Lanpher was handed a cell phone in Victory Lane. On the other end of that phone call was Priscilla Lund, the long-time supporter of Lanpher who was unable to be at the track.

"Priscilla and Craig (Lund), her husband, have been long-time supporters of us, just the absolute nicest people ever," Lanpher said. "A lot of people know them at the track and nobody has met them without knowing how awesome of people they are. She has cancer right now that she's going through. It wasn't a small amount of cancer, but she's strong as ever and she's fighting. The cancerous tumors have reduced significantly the last couple weeks after some surgeries. She's doing awesome and I think she's hopefully going to pull through. She's definitely in our thoughts today."

On the race track, Lanpher scored one of the most dominant victories in recent memory, starting from the pole and leading all 150 laps. For a driver who had admittedly struggled for much of the season, the win could only be summed up in one word.

"Amazing," Lanpher said. "It definitely takes the lows to make the highs feel that much better. It means a lot to us, so we're pretty excited."

Following the race, Lanpher credited crew chief Jason Ricker for taking a big swing at the No. 59 Super Late Model and providing one of the best cars he's ever had at the Oxford, Maine oval.

"We definitely knew when we unloaded. Jason was trying something new and it definitely gave us the wow factor the first practice," he stated. "We worked with if from there and come feature time it was the best car I've ever had here. It was just so smooth and I was able to conserve my tires like I've never been able to do before. It showed a little bit at the end. I didn't need to use it up."

Crossing the finish line behind Lanpher was former Oxford 250 winner Scott Robbins. A second-place finish on Saturday afternoon was Robbins' best PASS North finish in 34 career starts.

"We've been knocking on the door for a top three with the PASS series here this year with our new Dale Shaw car," Robbins said. "Today we needed a longer run. We could kind of stay even with Reid, but he was quicker off the restarts. To be able to run that good up front and pace the field for long green flag runs, we're very happy with today."

A surprise driver-owner combination completed the podium. Driving for car owner Archie St. Hilaire and Go Fas Racing, Massachusetts driver Derek Ramstrom battled near the front all race long before finishing third at a race track that he's admittedly struggled at in the past.

"Peter Petit actually put this together for me. Archie said, 'Hey, I want to have fun and race a couple Super Late Model races here and there.' We've known Peter for probably 10 years or so. Peter put in a good word for us and that's how the ball got rolling," Ramstrom said. "We kind of just threw this thing together last minute.

"Archie came down from Maine and said, 'Do you want to run this thing?' I'm like, 'Sure, why not?' I love racing; I'm not too much of fan of Oxford. Oxford is one of those tracks where if you're running great it's really fun, but if you're bad, oh my god it's one of the hardest tracks to run."

Driving a second car out of the Gabe Brown Racing stable, current Granite State Pro Stock Series points leader Joey Doiron finish fourth in his first PASS start of the season. Ben Ashline finished fifth to record his third top 10 finish in four starts behind the wheel of the Ajay Picard No. 99 car.

The battle for the 2019 PASS North championship also took a turn after the completion of the penultimate event. DJ Shaw entered Saturday's race with a nine-point advantage over Derek Griffith; however, an accident in their heat race put Shaw behind the eight-ball.

Ultimately, Griffith finished seventh and Shaw salvaged a 15th-place finish. That give Griffith an eight-point lead over Shaw entering the final race of the year next Saturday at Seekonk Speedway (MA).

Woodard Comes Out on Top
of Tiger Oxford Open at OPS
ACT MEDIA RACE REPORT - Oxford, ME - Waterbury Center, VT's Jason Woodard put the capstone on a dream 2019 season by winning the inaugural American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Flying Tiger Oxford Open at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, October 19. Woodard held off charges by Berlin, NH's Cody LeBlanc and Graniteville, VT's John Donahue to score his sixth Flying Tiger win of the season in the division's first visit ever to the historic 3/8-mile oval.

While Woodard started on the pole of the 75-lap event under ACT's "plus-minus" qualifying system, his road to victory was anything but smooth. The veteran held a small gap over the field in the race's early stages as Leblanc, Boundary Creek, NB's Dave O'Blenis, and Donahue duked it out for the second spot.

However, that lead evaporated once the leaders caught lapped traffic. As Woodard approached cars battling double-file for position in front of him, he attempted a three-wide move around the high side. LeBlanc saw an opportunity and went low, putting the nose of the Potter Racing machine out front on lap 34.

The two then went door-to-door in a thrilling battle over the next 10 circuits. Woodard was able to retake the lead on lap 37 before LeBlanc shot back out in front on lap 42. All the while, O'Blenis and Donahue were lurking just behind them. As the lead duo went into turn one on lap 45, Michael Potter got squirrely on the low side in front of them, and Woodard took advantage to shoot back in front.

Donahue and O'Blenis moved to second and third as LeBlanc was forced to lift to avoid an accident. Once Woodard got clear of the traffic, he pulled away from the field as Donahue did the same over second. With 19 laps to go, Colin Cornell spun on the backstretch to draw the race's first caution, putting Donahue on Woodard's outside for the restart.

Donahue would get that chance and three more over the next lap as a series of one- and two-car incidents slowed the pace, including one that took top-10 runner Sam Caron out of contention. Each time, Woodard held off Donahue. Once the field got settled down, the two gapped the field as Donahue looked time and again to the outside. However, he was unable to keep the momentum up long enough to draw alongside.

Donahue would get one more serious opportunity with four laps to go after his son Stephen came to a stop on the backstretch with a broken rear end. Once again, the inside lane was the place to be, as Woodard had enough to hold off Donahue and take the win. It capped a season for Woodard where he also won the Thunder Road Flying Tiger championship, Myers Container Service Triple Crown championship, White Mountain Motorsports Park Triple Crown title, and Flying Tiger Mini Milk Bowl.

LeBlanc was able to get back around O'Blenis and earn the final podium spot. O'Blenis finished fourth in his first time ever at the wheel of a Flying Tiger. Craftsbury, VT's Michael Martin made a late charge to take fifth. Cooper Bouchard, Tucker Williams, Adam Maynard, Tyler Austin, and Brian Delphia rounded out the top-10. Stephen Donahue, Bouchard, and Eric Johnson captured heat-race wins.

The 2019 American-Canadian Tour racing season is now in the books. Information regarding the ACT Banquet of Champions and the 2020 racing schedules will be announced in the coming weeks.
