THE GLORY DAYS RETURN TO OXFORD PLAINS
SPEEDWAY RACING SATURDAY NIGHTS AT 7PM, KIDS PIT
The glory days of racing will return to
Saturday nights at Oxford Plains Speedway beginning this
Saturday, August 2nd with Whited RV from Auburn hosting
the evening's activities. After trying to make a go of
things on Friday nights for the past two seasons, the
decision was made to switch to Saturday night racing for
the balance of the season.
"We have received so
many requests from people whom would love to be coming
to the races here at Oxford on a weekly basis, but by
the time they get home from work, shower, eat dinner and
relax for a moment, it doesn't leave them much time to
head to the track, and many just stay home, stated OPS
owner, Tom Mayberry. If you live more than forty-five
minutes away from the track, we are finding it very hard
for the fans to make it here on time. We also have
received many complaints from drivers that have to take
every Friday afternoon off to get to the track, and many
are only doing it periodically if at all. Saturday has
always been known as the night for racing, and hopefully
we will see some more people in the grandstands, and
drivers in the pits. Comments have been 95% positive,
and we hope this will continue to be a positive change.
There is no better weekly racing around than what we are
offering, and we want race fans to enjoy it!"
When racing resumes this Saturday, the card will be
a good one to start the change over with. The hugely
popular Kids Pit Tour will kick off at 6:25pm on
Saturday night prior to the races. The Kids Pit Tour is
a guided tour for all youngsters through the pit area
where they can see the racecars up close, meet and greet
the drivers, get to enter the racecar haulers and
receive treats and fun things from the race teams. The
race card will feature the PASS Sportsman, Budweiser Pro
Late Models, Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street
Stocks, Ripley & Fletcher Ford Outlaw Sportsman, and
Banditos. Racing will get underway at 7pm.

The Jarr Racing Photography
Go-Karting program at Oxford Plains Speedway continues
to grow every time out and this past Thursday night saw
several new faces grace the pit area. Winners included
Logan Spencer, Everett Allyn, Brandon Varney and Austin
A solid field of nine carts started the
Jr. Box Stock feature and when it was all said and done,
Logan Spencer grabbed his first win of 2014. It was not
an easy win as Colby Brackett was quickly closing in,
but ran out of time and settled for second. Maddy
Herrick, Jeremy Desrochers and Dilen Drew rounded out
the top five. Brackett won the qualifying round.
The Jr. Sportsman feature was a wild event featuring
numerous spins and lead changes. When the checkers flew
it was Everett Allyn grabbing the win over Madison
Morse, Nick Moulton, Riley Corbridge and Dakota
Tompkins. Morse carried the heat checkered flag.
The Sr. Sportsman saw Brandon Varney survive two late
race restarts to pick up a hard fought win over Stephen
Beattie. Alex Ferland and Brooke Keene chased the pair
to the stripe. Beattie picked up the heat win.
Austin Teras kept his winning streak alive as he edged
out Gabe Brown for the Sportsman division victory.
Tucker Olsen and Ethan Brown followed them home. Gabe
Brown collected the victory in the qualifying round.

Saturday, August 2nd, the next time that the Go-Karts
return to Oxford Plains Speedway. Post time is 10am,
pits open at 8am, and practice begins at 8:45am.
TWO IN A ROW FOR TRAVIS BENJAMIN - EDGES AUSTIN
THERIAULT FOR OXFORD 250 WIN
The 41st running of the Oxford 250 was a crowd pleaser as sixty
of the best Super Late Model teams in the country converged on
the small town of Oxford, Maine to participate in the historic
event. The fans were treated to over seven hundred laps of
racing, with several teams collecting checkered flags, but none
as happy and as excited as Travis Benjamin, whom collected his
second straight $25,000 payday, plus lap money.
Forty-four Super Late Models lined up on the grid with Concord,
N.C. speedster, Preston Peltier and Turner, Maine’s, Shawn
Martin filling the front row when the green flag flew. Peltier
jumped to lead and held the point for the first 21 laps with the
exception of lap six when Kelley Moore edged him out at the
stripe. Joey Doiron raced by Peltier on lap 21 and held the
point for the next 66 laps with Austin Theriault, Shawn Martin,
Scott Mulkern and Moore in tow. Theriault held the lead through
four restarts before he and Travis Benjamin pitted for tires and
fuel on lap 185, setting the stage for a storybook ending.
Cassius Clark took over the lead from Theriault as pit stops
completely changed the lineup around. DJ Shaw, Richie Dearborn,
Scott Moore and Johnny Clark were all now in the top five and
ready to challenge for the lead. Clark held the lead all the way
until lap 220 when Richie Dearborn edged him to the stripe when
the final caution waved.
Dearborn took the lead at the
green, but Benjamin and Theriault were right on his heels.
Benjamin made his move on lap 227, grabbed the lead and set sail
towards the checkers. His only obstacles included heavy lapped
traffic, and the #57 of Theriault. Theriault tried every move in
the books looking inside and outside, but Benjamin would not be
denied his second Oxford 250 win in a row. Theriault raced home
second from his sixth starting position, ahead of Dearborn who
actually had to take a provisional to get into the event.
Dearborn started 40th on the grid. Cassius Clark took home the
4th spot ahead of OPS regular, TJ Brackett. Rounding out the top
ten were Tyler Dippel, Derek Ramstrom, Ben Rowe, David Oliver
and Shawn Martin.
Heat checkers flew for Peltier, Martin,
Kelley Moore, Tim Brackett, Daniel Hemric and Theriault. Consi
victors were DJ Shaw, Benjamin, and Brent Dragon. David
Farrington Jr. was awarded the win in the Last Chance Race as
apparent winner Travis King failed post race inspection as his
car was too low.

capture the inaugural Mayhan Antiques & More 75 lap main event.
Other support division winners visiting Allen’s Coffee Flavored
Brandy victory lane on day three of the Oxford 250 weekend
included Josh Childs, Mathew Bourgoine, and Kris Watson.
Joshua Brown was headed for an easy win in the PASS Modified
race, but tangled with a lapped car around lap 50. Contact sent
the #05 of Ron Henry around in turn three bringing out the
caution. The field raced back to green with Brown pulling away
once again. Mitch Miller raced his way to second while Mark
Lucas and Andy Shaw battled for third. Lucas raced by both Shaw
and Miller to take over the second spot, but had nothing for
Brown until Brown was run high by Henry in turn four allowing
much of the field to race by, handing Lucas the lead. Lucas
cruised to his second win of the weekend, and the hefty $1,000
payday. Miller placed second ahead of Shaw, Brown and Billy
Matt Bourgoine paced the field in the 50 lap

OXFORD PLAINS SPEEDWAY SWITCHING OCS TO SATURDAY
NIGHTS ON 8/2
A major announcement from Oxford Plains Speedway, Route 26 in
Oxford, Maine has been released to the general public stating
that Oxford Plains Speedway will be switching their Friday
night, Budweiser Oxford Championship Series racing over to
Saturdays on August 2, 2014.
Oxford Plains Speedway
President Tom Mayberry confirmed the announcement stating the
following; “After much deliberation, we have made the decision
to switch our Friday night program to Saturday nights
beginning on Saturday, August 2, 2014. We
have done everything possible to make our Friday night show
work, but unfortunately the numbers in the grandstands just
haven’t increased enough to make it sustainable. One of the
biggest complaints that we have received about Friday night
racing is that people from more than an hour away can’t seem to
get here in time for the races. By the time they get out of
work, get home and relax over dinner, they are totally rushed
and many just stay home. We feel that everyone can make it out
to the track on a Saturday night, and not be as hurried. We are
hoping this will increase the number of fans at OPS weekly. We
have an unbelievable show on Friday nights, and we think it will
only get better. Several drivers are unable to get to the track
on Fridays as their work schedule does not allow for them to get
here, and this should also add to our solid car counts, making
us even stronger and more appealing to the race fan.”
Whited RV from Auburn, Maine will be the first sponsor when OPS
switches to Saturday nights on August 2nd. The first Saturday
night race card will feature the PASS Sportsman, Budweiser Pro
Late Models, Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stocks,
Ripley & Fletcher Ford Outlaw Sportsman, Bandito’s and the Kids
Pit Tour. Post time will be 7pm.

Heat wins went to Ajay Cates and Mark Grantham.
After much review, the Oxford
Plains Speedway Tech Inspectors have made the decision
to make an adjustment to the rules. Although the
original intention was a trial period for dual cam cars,
it has become apparent that for the health and growth of
the class, we should continue on with allowing dual cam
cars to compete. To equalize the competition we will
adjust the weight penalty to even out the field from 50
lbs. to 75 lbs.
Beginning, Saturday, August 2,
2014, dual cam cars are allowed to compete in the
Bandito’s division with the following condition:
1. All dual cam cars must add 75 lbs. to their racecar.
2 The 75 lbs. MUST BE LOCATED in the right front
floorboard and be touching the inner rocker panel. 3.
All weight MUST BE SECURED in a safe and proper manner.
All decisions concerning safety will be left up to the
OPS Tech team.
