OXFORD ACCELERATION SERIES
FRIDAY, JULY 3rd
TIMMY BRACKETT FIRST REPEAT VISITOR
VICTORY LANE THIS SEASON IN
BUDWEISER SUPER LATE
Oxford, Maine - Timmy Brackett of Buckfield
padded his slim lead atop the Budweiser Championship
Series Super Late Model standings Friday night, posting
an impressive victory in the 50-lap race topping the
Dave's Small Engines/Walker Mowers Holiday racing card
at Oxford Plains Speedway.
Brackett led the vast
majority of the race, breaking a string of disappointing
finishes in recent weeks, holding off Scott Robbins of
Dixfield to earn his trip to victory lane.
Multi-time OPS track champion Shawn Martin of Turner ran
most of the event in second position before racing under
the checkered flag in third place. Scott Farrington of
Minot made a late charge into fourth position, with the
top five filled out by Shawn Knight of South Paris.
Super Late Model rookie Spencer Morse of Waterford
was sixth, followed by Alan Wilson of Hebron, Kyle
Treadwell of Buckfield, Dennis Spencer of Turner and
Newcastle's Chuck Colby.
Josh Childs of Oxford
cruised to victory in the Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy
Street Stock division, with an aggressive dogfight for
other top positions thrilling the large Holiday crowd at
the historic Route 26 oval.
Closest to Childs
under the checkered flag was Andrew Breton of Sabattus,
who plowed through some late-race chaos to claim
runner-up honors in front of Naples competitor Bryce
Mains, also surviving some last-lap carnage to earn
another trophy. Matt Williams of Brownfield was fourth
under the checkered flag, with Norway's Jordan Russell
rounding out the top five.
Richard Kimball of
Mechanic Falls scored his first victory of the season in
the 20-lap finale for the entry-level OCS Bandits class.
Lapped traffic hindered several of his chief rivals in
the race, including runner-up Michael Cleveland of
Otisfield, who led much of the race. Points leader Shaun
Hinkley of Oxford ended up with a third-place finish, in
front of Waterford's Jamie Heath and David Cook of
Scott Alexander of Newburgh made
his long ride pay off, powering his way to victory lane
in the 25-lap feature race for OPS Modifieds.
Championship contender Ryan Robbins of Dixfield was
closing quickly in the final laps, but ran out of time
and settled for runner-up honors. Third-generation OPS
racer Evan Armington of Lovell finished up in third
position, followed by Scvott McDaniel of Livermore and
Westbrook's Matty Sanborn.
Maine Racing Hall of
Famer Jon Lizotte remained undefeated in the Wood Pellet
Warehouse Figure 8 15-lapper, but the field is closer to
the veteran racer every week. Brunswick's Allen Higgings
earned a second straight runner-up finish, with 'Angel
Warrior' Mike St. Germain of Auburn third across the
finish line. Eric Hodgdon and Zach Emerson rounded out
the top five.
Lewiston's Corey Morgan outran
Steve Moon of Gray in the 20-lap race for Outlaw
division competitors. Moon led most of the race before
settling for runner-up honors. David Whittier of Poland
survived early troubles to earn third-place honors, in
front of Michael Haynes of Livermore Falls and
Buckfield's Gerry Freve.
Dustin Salley of Poland
prevailed in a wildly-entertaining 20-lap main event for
the Runnin' Rebel division. Salley took command of the
race from the previous week's winner, Nathan Dubuc of
Lewiston, who found trouble dealing with lapped traffic,
as did contender Cam Childs.
Salley was chased
under the checkered flag by Waterford's Jamie Heath,
with hometown Oxford racer Gerard Cote nailing down a
third-place finish. Cody White of Buckfield and Auburn's
Cody Childs rounded out the top five.
of Leeds cruised to victory lane following the feature
race for Cruiser division racers. Auburn's John Poulin
was the best of the rest, with Chase Emerson of Turner
filling out the podium.
Gerry McKenna of Rumford
prevailed in a 15-lap race for the Sport Truck class.
Casco's Mark Grantham was a close second under the
checkered flag, with Alfred McKenna making a last-lap
move to claim third-place spoils.
Missy Morgan of
Lewiston continued her dominance in the Ladies division,
winning the race comfortably over Dixfield's Shelby
Shurtleff. Carleigh Vaughn of Naples claimed the
Budweiser Championship Series & NAPA Acceleration Series
