5/23 & 5/25 CANCELLED
Attention Race fans ... Saturday's 5/23 Oxford Championship Series and Monday 5/25 Memorial Day Events have been cancelled.  We have been working with local and state representatives this week and had high hopes that we had a shot at getting approval to race this weekend.  While state and local representatives have been great to work with, we are still unable to get our plan to safely operate the Speedway approved.  We are optimistic that this will change soon and are looking to hold open practices within the coming weeks.

Four of Five OCS Champs to Defend,
One Moving On Up
Oxford, ME - 4-23-20 - A weather-tame month of March has slowly melted away any remnants of winter, and pending any crazy spring storms, the attention starts to turn toward the upcoming 2020 season. Checking in on our 2019 OCS Champions, we find that four of the five are set to return to their respective divisions to attempt a repeat of 2019. Only the T&M Funding Rookie Champion Brady Childs will make the jump to a higher class.

Crazy Horse Racing and High Performance Parts Super Late Model Champion Curtis Gerry #7g is geared up for his second full time season at Oxford Plains Speedway (OPS). Arguably the most successful SLM driver at OPS in the last few seasons with nearly a dozen wins declared his intent late in 2018 to run weekly at the famed 3/8 mile oval. The season couldn't have gone much better for the Waterboro driver as Gerry clinched the championship with a race left still on the schedule. "Our first full year at Oxford exceeded our expectations. There are a bunch of excellent drivers that are really great to race with. We had a lot of fun and we certainly hope that 2020 is just as successful as 2019." The Driver of the black 7G looks to become the first back to back title winner since Tim Brackett accomplished the feat in 2015-2016.


Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Champion Matt Dufault #61 has his sights set on his third championship, a feat accomplished only by Kurt Hewins and the late Larry Emerson. That will be no easy task in 2020 as the list of competitors is long and deep on any given Saturday night. "I think it is really wide open. Some guys have new cars and some of the guys built up a good notebook on their cars coming back," said Dufault. "Last year we were really aggressive trying different things, and I feel like we have it narrowed down to what works good. I can't wait to get started, it should be a barn burner! As an 18 time winner in the competitive Street Stock class, Dufault has moved to within 10 wins of Skip Tripp, the division's all-time leader.


Oxford's Chad Wills #54 was a first time champion last year in The Spencer Group Paving Bandit class. As the division starts its seventh full season, Wills believes the division is ripe for one of the best years yet. The driver of the familiar black and yellow KHM number 54 is, as of this writing, the only former bandit champion slated to compete in the division full time in 2020. While that experience is handy, it does not lock him into the head table for the banquet at years end. Wills points out, "a lot of people improved at the end of 2019. It should be a very competitive class in 2020. My goal right now is to just contend for the championship." The chore will be made a bit more difficult in 2020 as the division moves back to a 3 week rolling average to determine lineups. Known for his week to week consistency, Wills will most likely find himself starting at or near the back of the weekly lineups and forced to make his way to the front week in and week out to maintain that steadiness.


One of the most exciting divisions at OPS is the Full-Size Figure 8 divisions presented by the Vierra State Farm Agency. The 2019 title winner Larry Lizotte #00 is set to etch his name in the record books as a multi-time champion, like his hall of fame father, five- time champion Jon Lizotte. No matter what though, the younger Lizotte is mostly just looking to have a whole lot of fun this coming year. "I just want to be as competitive as last year. No matter how I finish I know I had fun. I enjoy racing with the guys in the Figure 8 division," said the 2019 champ. The Oxford Figure 8 division is known as one of the most competitive divisions in the state. The 2020 season promises to have several experienced drivers returning to the class making it both extra exciting, and more difficult for a repeat champion.


The lone driver not returning to defend their championship from 2019 is the teen aged chauffeur from Leeds, Brady Childs #1. After a very successful couple of years in the T&M Funding Rookie division, the third generation driver is making the switch to Wednesday nights and the more powerful Harnish HVAC Outlaw class. Childs, winner of seven races in the rookie class, is hoping to make his mark as he embarks on a new racing venture, but is also keeping expectations realistic. "My goal for 2020 is to just do a good job. I'm not expecting to go win," said the youngster, "It's all about the fun. I enjoy how close my family gets when we are racing and I just like to go fast." With a family pedigree as lengthy as any in New England, and enough laps in a full sized car over the past two year, Childs is almost certain to be a factor to win on any given night.

No matter the driver, the 2020 season at Oxford Plains Speedway promises to be a great one!

Defending Street Stock Champion
Just Having Fun, Pays It Forward
When asked what his goals in racing were, two time defending Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock Champion Matt Dufault provided an unexpected answer. "I know my car owner really likes winning championships," said the 15 year veteran, "But for me I just want to win races. I'd love to move up into Super Late Models but I can't really afford to do it. I'm very happy running Street Stocks. There's always good guys to race. They are some of the best in the New England no doubt about it."

From a driver who has won 10 races over the past two seasons to accompany those championships most people would think the Turner driver is intent on a adding a third title to his resume. Dufault, however, seems more intent on having fun. "I don't get out much unless it's on Saturday from April to September (racing cars) - I don't have a lot of crew but my car owner Rodney Williams, my girlfriend Jessie, my Mom, Jacob Vaughn and Kameron Weir sometimes. I think a lot of guys know I don't really have any crew so if something goes bad a bunch of racers will come out of the stands and help me out. That's pretty awesome, I'm lucky to have them on our side."

While Dufault is quick to be thankful, he can often be found chatting up fellow racers or offering advice to a struggling competitor. "I've basically done my own setups my whole career. No one ever really gave me the keys to something that's bad fast so that's really gratifying," The 38 time Oxford winner pronounced, "I like pay it forward when I can and help people get the same enjoyment out of it that I do."

The driver of the familiar blue 61 got the bug by just going to the races as a fan with pal Troy Jordan as a teenager. "My dad thought we were going out partying and just saying we were going to the races, but we were actually just going to the races."

It didn't take long before the itch to drive led him to the Runnin' Rebels class. Dufault was not always the front runner he is today, that took a lot of trial and error to figure it out. These trying times are most likely where he got his desire to help others run fast too. "When I first started out we struggled because we just didn't have the knowledge," he said after giving a young racer a brand new helmet he wasn't using, "so if I can lend a hand, or make it easier to get going, then maybe that racer will stay with it. Plus, I can tell him, 'Here, take this helmet and go out there and hit people, 'cause that's what racing is all about.'"

While obviously tongue in cheek, he acknowledges, "Stuff breaks, you get in wrecks, and sometimes people run you like crap, but that's all just part of it. You find a way to get there next week."

One thing is for certain, Matt Dufault doesn't forget to have fun along the way to winning his share of races. And whether he wins it all or not seems to be less important than the time spent at the track or in the garage among family and friends.
OPS DRIVER SPOTLIGHTS
TIM BRACKETT - CALVIN ROSE JR. - CURTIS GERRY
OPS SLM PREVIEW:
The Most Competitive Division
in the Northeast
Oxford, ME - 2-26-20 - No less than 24 different faces have graced the number one position over the past two seasons in Oxford Championship Series Budweiser Super Late Model competition. With car counts often in the mid to high 20s, Oxford Plains Speedway has one of the most competitive divisions in the entire Northeast and beyond. Looking ahead to the upcoming season, 2020 promises to be no different.

One of the hottest drivers at OPS over the last few years has been Waterboro's Curtis Gerry who has declared his intent to defend his 2019 championship. The pilot of the familiar black 7g has visited victory lane 10 times over the past few seasons between Championship Series Racing and Pro All Stars Series competition, including the prestigious 2017 Oxford 250.

Ready to take to the fight in the battle to unseat the 7g will be the father son duo of Tim and TJ Brackett from Buckfield, Maine. The Brackett's have long been stalwarts at OPS for the better part of 35 plus years and boast 6 championships with over 75 wins between them. Tim debuted a new car last season and now that the bugs have been worked out, looks to contend for multiple wins and share in the title hunt with son TJ. The younger Brackett, who has showed a lot of speed and narrowly missed the 2018 championship, suffered some injuries last season which derailed him from full time competition. TJ looks to bounce back in and battle for the big prize.

Another father son duo also promises to make their mark in 2020. This duo is led by driver Calvin Rose Jr and his dad Calvin Sr. Toward the end of 2019 they purchased a Distance Chassis that they raced one time as a shakedown. Driver 8 won multiple championships and races in support divisions before making the jump to the powerful SLM class in 2017. With their first win in 2018, and a pair in 2019, the Rose Racing Team is poised to make the leap from contender to champion.

Not to be outdone, 15 year old Kate Re will make her debut in the high powered full-fendered cars in 2020. Kate is a PASS MODS graduate who tallied a pair of wins and a fourth place point finish in 2019. Taking delivery of a new Fury chassis, and plenty of test time promises that the young hot shoe will likely be a force right from the get go.

Several other drivers have yet to finalize full 2020 plans but have stated they will be racing most, if not all, of the races at the famed 3/8 mile oval in Oxford and any one of them can be a threat to win it all. Veteran Alan Wilson debuted a new Shaw chassis midway through 2019 and promptly visited the podium. Ryan Robbins as well as Scott Robbins always field ultra-fast and beautifully prepared cars. Shawn Martin is a multi-time race winner and former champion. Josh Childs made his presence known mid-way through 2019 winning a feature and qualifying for the 250 and he has purchased both an OPS and a PASS license. Ryan Deane showed a lot of speed in his Distance Racing Chassis prior to a season ending wreck with a few weeks remaining. Jeff White is a hard charging former champion and a threat to win any race he enters. Add to the mix nine time champion Jeff Taylor, race winners Scott McDaniel, Scott Moore, and young gun Austin Teras with occasional visits from Kyle Treadwell or Pass regulars like Derrick Griffith and Travis Benjamin, and it doesn't take long to realize that there are 30+ drivers that could show up and win on any given Saturday!

2020 HONEY BADGER BAR & GRILL
STREET STOCK SERIES SCHEDULE
KYLE HEWINS - SKIP TRIPP - BILLY CHILDS
Eight Races On Tap For 2020
Honey Badger Street Stock Series
Naples, ME - 2-24-20- The fourth year of the fledgling Honey Badger Street Stock Series (HBSSS) will is set to grow to eight races for the 2020 season. Born from a series of open races in 2017 at Oxford Plains Speedway, The HBSSS has grown into a very popular proving ground for street stock drivers all across Northern New England as they test their talents against some of the region's best. This year's edition of the series sanctioned by the Pro-All Star Series (Pass) is slated for five races at hub track Oxford Plains Speedway, along with one event each at Speedway 95, White Mountain Motorsports Park, and Thunder Road.

"We are very pleased with continued success of this series," said PASS President Tom Mayberry, "We have been very deliberate with slow and steady growth to make sure we are giving the racers what they want, without affecting the weekly shows."

This year's schedule starts off with a pair of races at Oxford Plains Speedway on April 26th and May 31st as a part of visits from the Pass tour. Skip Stanley, Kyle Hewins, Jordan Russell, and Kenny Harrison were all victorious in fields of at least 20 drivers per race in 2019. Speedway 95 on June 21st will host race three where Hewins hopes to snag another win at the narrow Bangor speed plant before a return to the home track of Oxford Plains on July 3rd and August 16th.

White Mountain Motorsports Park will be the site of round six where Oxford Skip Tripp hopes for a repeat of last year's dominating performance while runner-up and 2019 HBSSS Champion hopes to stop him in his tracks. The tight New Hampshire quarter mile has quickly become a driver favorite in the last two year.

One of the more exciting new races is a trek across the mountains to scenic Thunder Road Speed bowl in Barre Vt. as a part of the historic Milk Bowl Weekend. "We wanted to give the guys a chance to race at a couple of different venues while keeping in mind that these are grass roots racers on a budget," Mayberry said. "We considered adding Loudon, but that is a big race with a lot of unknowns, so we opted to keep that as an open and add in Thunder Road for the first time."

The Series then returns to Oxford Plains Speedway for its championship race on October 17th. Last year's Honey Badger Street Stock Point Series was taken down by Leeds Driver Billy Childs Jr who also won the late season Triple Crown. Jordon Russell, Kyle Hewins, Kenny Harrison and Shawn Knight rounded out the top five. Add to that list multi-time champion Matt Dufault, Brian Caswell, and Skip Tripp who has stated his intentions to run the entire series, along with several top drivers from surrounding tracks and the series looks to continue in 2020 with strong fields and heavy competition.

2020 Oxford 250 Entries Top 40
a Full Seven Months in Advance!
Oxford, ME - 1-31-20 - The 2020 edition of the Oxford 250 has reached the highest number of entries for this time of year in nearly a decade. King Racing veteran Cassius Clark officially filed the 43rd entry for the prestigious race set to be run in the last weekend in August, nearly seven months away. This puts the pace well ahead of the last few years when the historic weekend drew 55 or more of the best Super Late Model drivers in the nation.

"We are absolutely thrilled that so many top-notch drivers are already committing to be a part of one of the biggest weekends on the Eastern Seaboard," said PASS President Tom Mayberry, "The last few 250s have had some phenomenal racing, and by the looks of our entry list so far, this year will be no exception."

Two-time race winner Ben Rowe in his familiar yellow number 4 was the first of this year's entrants even before the calendar flipped into 2020. It wasn't long after that when entries began to flood the Rte. 26 office. Northeast Legend Mike Rowe was the 20th driver to officially file his intent to compete in his 38th Oxford 250 in hopes to add to his three previous wins in three different decades.

The impressive entry list reads like a Who's Who of Super Late Model racing in the Northeast, including nine-time track champion Jeff Taylor, 2019 track champion and multi-time Pro-All Star Series (PASS) winner Curtis Gerry, and back-to-back winner Eddie MacDonald who still seeks his first 250 win in a SLM.

Making the long haul all the way from Washington State will be Super Late Model standout Garret Evans whose lone appearance in 2016 resulted in a disappointing 23rd place finish after running near the front most of the day. Local young hot shoes like Austin Teras and Josh Childs, who have both been feature winners at the famed 3/8 mile oval, promise to make the veterans earn their way, while the Canadian contingent will be represented by Cole Butcher, who has shown a tremendous amount of speed in several races.

Among the most recent entries are the likes of three-time 250 Champion Travis Benjamin, four-time PASS Champion DJ Shaw, and last year's runner up Derek Griffith who will all compete to wear the wreath at the end of 250 laps. With 43 of the best drivers in America already on the entry list, the 47th annual Oxford 250 promises to be the best yet with the entry list sure to rise in coming months.

Oxford, ME - 1-25-20 - 42 events spread across seven action packed months are on tap for at Oxford Plains Speedway this season. Among the highlights are six visits from the ever-popular Pro All Stars Series (PASS) with the marquee event being the 47th annual Oxford 250 running from August 28-30.

Back-to-back racing days makes its return on a rare Thursday July 2nd show featuring all 11 OPS divisions as well as a spectacular fireworks show. The very next night PASS SLM, MODS, and Honey Badger Streets will debut a different style of race as they come back for Triple Twins. The SLMs will run two 75 lap races, MODS a pair of 35 lappers, and Streets will double down for 25 laps in what promises to make for some interesting strategy in the short sprint races.

July and August roll along with multiple special events, including fan meet and greets, backpack giveaways, Show, Shine and Drag, Christmas in July, and racecar rides all leading up the biggest short track weekend in the northeast with the 47th annual Oxford 250 August 28-30th. Coming off a very successful 2019, pre-entries are already nearing 30 and renewal ticket sales are ahead of last year's pace when over 600 campers jammed the OPS parking lot for the legendary weekend.

As the calendar turns into September and October, the action keeps coming with the third installment of the Motor Mayhem on September 5th, followed by OPS Championship night featuring all 11 divisions on the 12th. October will feature the OPS Finale Weekend with a PASS 125, MODS, Streets and ACT Flying Tigers on the 17th.
