NAPLES, ME (July 12) - Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President and Oxford Plains Speedway owner Tom Mayberry is pleased to announce the 2019 Grand Marshall for the Oxford 250. Bob Bahre, former owner of Oxford Plains Speedway, has agreed to serve as the Grand Marshall for this year's event.

Bob Bahre purchased Oxford Plains Speedway in 1964. He ran it with his brother Dick Bahre until they sold it in 1987. It was under Bob's leadership that the first Oxford 250 came to be. It began in 1974 as a 200 lap event, being expanded to 250 laps the following year.

Bob and his family made many improvements to the track under his ownership. Bob is known as a successful businessman in the Oxford Hills area and beyond.

"We are extremely honored that Bob will be this year's Grand Marshall, 55 years after he took ownership of the track," said Tom Mayberry, the current owner of Oxford Plains Speedway.

Following his time at Oxford Plains, Bahre went on to build New England's only superspeedway in Loudon, NH, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The 46th Annual Oxford 250 will be held on August 23-25 and nearly 50 PASS Super Late Models are currently entered. For additional information, please go to ProAllStarsSeries.com.

Oxford 250 Preview
OXFORD - The time is finally upon us for the biggest Super Late Model event of the year for the New England area - The 46th annual Oxford 250 held at Oxford Plains Speedway. There are over 50 drivers signed up to try to make it into the big show but who knows how many other drivers will show up and surprise the fans! 10 of this year's entries have won the race including last year's winner Bubba Pollard and 2017 winner Curtis Gerry. It's been a big season for Curtis Gerry of Waterboro he's won 3 PASS races at Oxford and 3 weekly 50 lappers. The 7G is one of the favorites to win this year.

"Our season has gone great so far! We are currently the 2019 Oxford (track) Champion and we have won 6 races, we have a lot of momentum and great confidence in the cars setup, with no issues I believe we could be sitting in victory lane again in this year's 250." Gerry had to say about his season.

There's a lot that goes into preparing for the 250 but Gerry seems to just be sticking with his usual weekly routine: "Just keep focused on the maintenance of the car and make sure it is ready to go."

While Gerry has been one of the most dominant drivers at Oxford this year if he had to pick another driver to win the Oxford 250 he said: "based off performance at Oxford this season either Nick Sweet or Ben Rowe."

Gerry had a great car last year but ran into bad luck getting together with Cassius Clark towards the end and finished in 37th, so hopefully luck is on his side come this weekend.

Another driver that's been very dominant at Oxford this year has been Garrett Hall of Scarborough. He's won two PASS races at Oxford this season and he's currently 2nd in points on the PASS tour, only 15 points behind DJ Shaw. Hall seems to be staying humble though and doesn't want to get ahead of himself.

"My season so far this year has gone well with the two wins at Oxford but I don't consider it great. I feel like our chances are good as long we have a competitive car, I feel like last year was a success but also felt like it slipped away from us so hoping we can use last year as an advantage towards this year. "

He's had good runs at the Oxford 250 the past few years but has just ended up using the car up too early. Last year he still ended up finishing in 4th place a career best for him.
"I have been preparing for this year a lot with making sure I'm confident in myself, car and team that we can have a great and successful weekend, of course with a lot of fun involved. I've been running and exercising to get in better shape not only physically but mentally as well for this year's race. I know that we as a whole team will be well prepared and ready to prove that we can get it done."

Hall is one of those drivers that you typically lose track of during the race then sneaks up to the front and steals the show. His picks to win the race are the drivers that are the fastest wherever they go.
"There's over 20 to 30 cars and teams that are capable of winning. I would say some of the favorites from a fans perspective would be the 7g car, Shaw, Nick Sweet, Reid Lanpher, anyone that has been running weekly will be good for being able to keep with the track and the changes over the year."

One Oxford weekly guy that has a great momentum going into 250 Weekend is Calvin Rose Jr. of Turner. He's currently 2nd in points in the track SLM division and has one win under his belt.

"The season started off rocky but with a lot of hard work and dedication we have the car back to where we need it and have had a pretty good second part of the year with a win and a second."

Rose has qualified for the past two years for the Oxford 250 finishing 32nd in 2017 and 16th place last year. Anything could happen at the 250. Sometimes the fastest cars don't finish, and sometimes cars you weren't even sure were going to make it in finish top 10.

"We haven't done a whole lot of preparing yet, we have one more weekly race then we'll go through the car and make sure everything is up to shape." Calvin Rose Jr said August 8th when asked how he's preparing this year.

Like most of the others when they were asked who they thought would be in contention to win this year ,he said the 7g of Gerry.

"I feel the big favorite is the 7g he is stout this year and is always the one to beat. I think it'll be a good race with him and Bubba Pollard."

Calvin Rose Jr hasn't run many long-distance races this season at Oxford so we will see if he has what it takes to keep up with the PASS SLMs at the 250.

Last year's track champion Gabe Brown of North Conway, NH will be at Oxford this Sunday trying to turn his season around. After winning his track championship he decided to race PASS full time in 2019 and he hasn't had great finishes as of lately.

"The beginning of 2019 was pretty good and we had high hopes on this year, we've run into some pretty big issues in the last couple races with a rear end going bad and blowing the motor at the last oxford race. After the test this last weekend I strongly believe the cars really good and I know my crew is better than it's ever been going into the 250. So it's on me, and my aggressiveness to make the show and perform well." explained Brown who finished 33rd in last years 250.

Gabe Brown drives a Dale Shaw race car and has found great mentors in Dale and DJ Shaw so he has a great team to help prepare this year.

"Dale ,DJ, Steph, my dad and I all work hard to get my car ready week in and week out, but the 250 has never been good to me, so we are working extra hard this year to make sure everything is top notch and no failures will happen. We changed everything in the driveline. If something fails, it's not because we missed it."

No driver wants to see someone else win but Gabe Brown thinks DJ Shaw, Nick Sweet and Gerry would be his picks to be up there in contention.

"At the 250 you can't go by speed, it's all about luck in this race, pit strategy and such. It's just whoever comes out on top really." Brown added about who could possibly win this year.

One of Brown's biggest mentors DJ Shaw of North Conway finished 6th last year at the 250, This year he will be back trying to nail down the win. Shaw is currently the PASS points leader and has won 3 races this season but none at Oxford.

"2019 has gone pretty good for us, having 3 wins at this point is more than we've had in a full season in years so I think our offseason work has been a step in the right direction. We've been hit or miss at Oxford so we just need to work hard to get where we need to be and if we can do that we will have a chance to win!"

Similar to Curtis Gerry, Shaw isn't doing too much to prepare that he doesn't do on a regular basis besides extra maintenance and making the car look better.Shaw believes the obvious picks to win will be Gerry or Nick Sweet but he thinks there's some drivers people might sleep on.
"A couple sleeper picks I have would be Scott Robbins and Joey Pole, Scott had great speed at the end of the last race and Pole always puts together a good run at the 250 so those two I think can surprise some people!"

Another sleeper pick for the Oxford 250 would be Derek Griffith of Hudson, NH. Griffith also has 3 PASS wins this season and he's currently 4th in the PASS points. He hasn't had very good luck at Oxford this season but anything could happen.

"We're happy with the season so far for sure, I think our chances are the best they have been out of all the previous 250s!" Griffith finished 21st during last year's 250 and, besides his races at Oxford this season, has been very consistent this year.
Griffith thinks Gerry is the one to beat this year but won't be counting out Bubba Pollard after his run last year at the Oxford 250.

"A lot of the good guys come to this show so it will be a good race!"

Drivers and fans from all over will be attending races this weekend to see who will get the big win on Sunday night. Come see if anyone beat Curtis Gerry and Bubba Pollard this year to be crowned the 2019 Oxford 250 champion. Green flag drops at 1:30 PM this Sunday August 25th!

AUGUST 23-25, 2019
"Road to the Oxford 250"
Continues in 2019
With the postponement of the Star Speedway event on July 30th, the Provisionals for the Road to the Oxford 250 will be moved to the August 10th event at Speedway 51.

NAPLES, ME - Oxford Plains Speedway owner and Pro All Stars Series President Tom Mayberry announced the continuation of the "Road to The Oxford 250" program for 2019.

Celebrating its sixth year in 2019, the "Road to The Oxford 250" will continue give racers across the continent the chance to compete in short track asphalt racing's biggest event. As mentioned with the announcement a little over a month ago of the Wenatchee Valley Super Oval event, competitors from Canada and the United States will have opportunity to race for guaranteed starting spots in six additional events in 2019, while keeping the focus on the 250 throughout the season.

"Our goal is to keep the focus on the 250 throughout the year. While there will be several spots offered through the program, many of these will not have to be used since most of those competitors will advance through the famed heat and consolation races. Competitors need to remember that this program will not reduce the number of starting positions that will be earned through the normal 250 qualifying procedures but will allow those who may be having a bad day to use the provisional if necessary, to guarantee their starting spot in this prestigious race."

The first event to be featured in the Road to The Oxford 250 will be the previously announced Leonard Evans 150 scheduled to take place on April 27, 2019 on the northwest coast at the Wenatchee Valley Super Oval located in Wenatchee Valley, Washington. The winner of this event, along with the second and third place finishers, if PASS licensed and their Oxford 250 entry is received by June 1, 2019, will be guaranteed a provisional starting spot. The first-place winner will receive a full pay provisional, and second and third will receive a 1/2 start provisional (with a guarantee of $600 to take the green, the 1/2 provisional means that wherever the competitor finishes, they will see a reduction of $300 (1/2 of the guaranteed starting money) in their final purse for their finishing position).

The Road then continues to the season opener at Oxford Plains Speedway on Sunday April 28th; Thunder Road in Barre, VT on Sunday May 26th; Speedway 95 in Bangor, ME on Sunday June 16th; Star Speedway in Epping, NH on Tuesday July 30th; and finishing off at Spud Speedway in Caribou, ME on Sunday August 4th.
With the postponement of the Star Speedway event on July 30th, the Provisionals for the Road to the Oxford 250 will be moved to the August 10th event at Speedway 51. The top two finishing drivers each from Canada and the United States will earn provisionals to the 250. As with the Wenatchee Valley race, to be eligible to use the provisionals, drivers must be PASS Licensed and have their entries submitted for the Oxford 250. The top US and top Canadian driver will each receive a full start provisional with second place finishing US and Canadian driver each earning a 1/2 start provisional.

The final race as part of the Road to The Oxford 250 will be a special 100-lap open race at Oxford Plains Speedway Saturday July 6th. This will not be a points race for PASS. The Independence Weekend race will see the top two Oxford Plains and top two PASS licensed finishing drivers earn a guaranteed spot in the 2019 Oxford 250.

Additionally, the top licensed drivers in points from PASS North, Oxford Plains Speedway, and the PASS National Championship Series, will have a provisional available, if needed, as long as they have attempted to qualify for every race in their chosen series.

All drivers that will have guaranteed spots through the Road to The Oxford 250 or via championship points provisionals have to compete in their heat races and in their consolation race but will not have to compete in the last chance race if they have not already qualified.

Bubba Pollard Prevails
in 45th Oxford 250

Georgia racer wins in first-ever
Oxford Plains Speedway appearance
2018 250 LAP BOARD
Oxford, Maine -- Bubba Pollard showed New England race fans that the reputation preceding him to the 45th Annual Clark's Scrap Metal Oxford 250 was much more than hype, winning the biggest one-day short track Super Late Model race in his first attempt Sunday at Oxford Plains Speedway. Pollard, from Senoia, Georgia, got his first look at the Speedway on Friday.

The definition of a true Super Late Model racing outlaw, Pollard, 31, convinced New England race fans that he's clearly among the best short track racers in North America, conquering the unique Oxford Plains Speedway racetrack in his first attempt. Pollard took the lead away from Travis Benjamin of Belfast, a two-time Oxford 250 champion in his own right, then outran another former 250 champion, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, New Hampshire to the checkered flag.

Reid Lanpher of Manchester made a late charge into third position during the closing laps. Scarborough's Garrett Hall ended up in fourth place after dominating more than half the race from his pole starting position, earning some $20,00-plus with lap leader bonuses included. Berwick's Joey Doiron, a former PASS Super Late Model National Champion, rounded out the top five.

Pollard overcame a bad draw - he started dead last in the final of five heat races - and needed to run a second-round 20-lap qualifying race to earn 29th starting position in the 42-car starting field. Dealing with a field of unfamiliar foes in a race with traffic rivaled by few, if any, big Super Late Model races, Pollard made all of the right moves as he methodically moved into contention for the win.

A racer's racer, Pollard was impressive from the drop of the green flag, working his way into the top five during the long green flag stretch that opened the 250. Seemingly making all of the right moves in traffic as the Super Late Models frequently raced three-wide, the appreciative Maine crowd soon realized the third-generation Peach State racer was going to be a contender to pick up the big check at the end of the annual Maine classic.

In victory lane, Pollard expressed his appreciation to the crowd, as clearly he was jacked up and ready to perform before the full grandstand, increasingly rare in the smartphone age. The crowd returned the love, clearly appreciating the successful effort of the first-time OPS invader.

Polewarczyk, a winner during the brief Late Model era of the 250 and no stranger to victory lane in a Super Late Model at Oxford Plains Speedway, looked like a contender in the early stages and put together an impressive late charge into the runner-up position. Lanpher, twice a runner-up in the 250, claimed his third podium finish and 250 trophy.

Hall was the story for more than half of the race, leading all but a few laps for more than the first half of the 250, occasionally battling and swapping the lead with seven-time OPS track champion Jeff Taylor of Fairfield, making his first Super Late Model start of the year. The young Scarborough racer scored his best-ever racing payday, despite just missing out on a trophy, posting a fourth-place finish.

Doiron, an infrequent competitor on the region's top Super Late Model circuit this season, rounded out the top-five. Current Pro All Stars Series North championship points leader DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New Hampshire was sixth under the checkered flag, one spot better than his closest rival in the standings, Benjamin.

Mike Hopkins of Hermon raced among the leader throughout the 250-lapper and earned an eight-place finish. Brandon Barker of Windham ended up in ninth position , with the top ten rundown filled out by Ben Rowe of Turner, who claimed some lap leader bonus money and battled up front with winner Pollard for several laps.

Ben Tinker of New Gloucester padded his advantage atop the championship points standings in the PASS Mods ranks, winning his fifth 40-lap feature race of the year in an eventful race. Bruce Helmuth of Wales was the runner-up, followed by Milford, New Hampshire's Steve Dickey, Jr. The three podium finishers were also in those same spots at last year's Oxford 250 program.

Saturday night winner Spencer Morse of Waterford was fourth, followed by second-ranked points man Gary Shackford of Center Conway, New Hampshire. The Mods race next along with the PASS North Super Late Models at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, Maine on Saturday, September 23 before wrapping up their championship season back at Oxford Plains Speedway on October 13.

Zach Audet of Norridgewock surprised virtually no one with his victory in the North East Mini Stock Tour's 50-lap race. Audet, the king of four-cylinder racing in Central Maine and beyond, outran Kodi Sabens of Windsor, Vermont to the checkered flag. Jimmy Childs of Leeds, survived several days of practice and a crash earlier in the afternoon to claim the third-place trophy. Michael Viens of Seekonk, Massachusetts and Sidney's Matt Glidden rounded out the top five.

Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock points leader Matt Dufault of Turner charged past Skip Tripp on the final lap to win the 30-lap main event for The Taste of Maine division, just barely edging the division's all-time wins leader at the finish line by .017-seconds, mere inches.

Tripp, hopping into John White's 12 car for the weekend, kept five-time winner and defending track champion Billy Childs, Jr., who had won on the previous night, at bay but couldn't keep Dufault out of victory lane before the healthy crowd. Championship contender Tyler King of Gray made a late charge into third position. Childs and fellow Leeds racer Kyle Hewins rounded out the top five.

John Childs of Leeds cruised up the outside lane and into the lead, then outran all rivals to score his first-ever Oxford 250 Sunday win in the Rebel class. Travis Lovejoy of Waterboro was closest to Childs as the checkered flag wavedWaterford's Jamie Heath, Oxford's Gerard Cote and Rick Montminy from Auburn filled out the top-five rundown.
