This Weekend's Oxford 250
NAPLES, ME (August 21) - With just days left
before on track activity begins at Oxford Plains
Speedway for the 46th Annual Oxford 250 and hundreds of
campers already dot the property, Pro All Stars Series
(PASS) Super Late Model teams are making final
preparations for one of the biggest events on the racing
calendar. While many eyes will be on Georgia's Bubba
Pollard as he attempts to defend his Oxford 250 crown,
the short track star might not enter Sunday's race as
the favorite. 2017 winner Curtis Gerry of Waterboro, ME,
has concentrated all his efforts on competing at Oxford
Plains this season, with several wins in weekly
competition and a PASS North win there as well.
Championship contender, Garrett Hall sits just 15 points
behind the 3-time PASS North titlist, DJ Shaw, largely
in part due to his two wins at Oxford Plains earlier
this year. But, after advancing from the last chance
race a year ago before going on to win the 250, Pollard
is still the driver many feel will be the one to beat in
"Before the race I was a nervous wreck just
not knowing what to expect or how these guys race," says
Pollard, who will be driving the Harrison's Workwear
Ford #26. "After we started and got about 50 laps in, I
was like, these guys are good and race with respect. I
had a blast."
Pollard has won virtually every
major Super Late Model event from Florida to Washington
state and even Canada. But with nearly 100 checkered
flags over the last decade and more accolades than one
could count, Pollard says his experience at the 2018
Oxford 250 was an eye opener.
"I've traveled up
and down the road and raced at a lot of places, but the
Oxford 250 is probably the coolest race I've ever been a
part of," says Pollard. "I'm excited to get there this
weekend and race in front of that awesome crowd.
Competitors will once again have the opportunity to
race for one of the richest winner's purses in asphalt
short track racing, with $25,000 to win, plus an
additional $25,000 in lap leader money. Pollard took
home over $28,000 last year for his efforts in becoming
the first southern driver since Tommy Ellis in 1983.
While no one in the last two decades has led more than
Joey Polewarcyzk's 205 laps in 2012, if a driver could
somehow manage to lead all 250 laps, they would take
home $50,000 for the win.
The huge weekend of
racing at Oxford Plains Speedway as part of the 250 on
August 23-25 will see a variety of cars from across the
spectrum of short track racing. On Saturday, August 24,
the ACT Late Models will return to Oxford Plains
Speedway, along with the Tour-Type Modifieds of the
Tri-Track Open Modified Series. Drivers like Ron Silk,
Matt Hirschman, Woody Pitkat, Matt Swanson, Andy
Jankowiak and more are all expected to compete on The
Night Before The 250 at Oxford Plains. The complete
weekend schedule is located at ProAllStarsSeries.com.
This year's entry list has grown to nearly 60 and
features some of the best short track racers in North
America, including former Oxford 250 winners, Mike and
Ben Rowe, Travis Benjamin, Joey Polewarcyzk, Eddie
MacDonald, Glen Luce, Curtis Gerry, Bubba Pollard, and
Scott Robbins. Former PASS champions, Johnny Clark, DJ
Shaw, and Cassius Clark have also entered, along with
defending PASS National champion, Derek Griffith and
2019 national title contenders Mike Hopkins, Ray
Christian, III, and Jake Johnson.

ACT Returns to Oxford for
Latest Round of
Waterbury, VT - The American-Canadian Tour (ACT)
gets back into the point-counting season this Saturday,
August 24 at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway. The Oxford
Plains 150 is part of a huge night of racing that will
thrill fans and set the stage for the final rounds of
this year's $10,000-to-win heavyweight championship
Saturday's show is part of the "Night
Before the 250" as Oxford Plains sets the stage for the
46th Annual Oxford 250 on Sunday. The ACT Late Model
Tour has been part of "Night Before" program three of
the last four years, and this year's Saturday night
showdown is bigger than ever. ACT is joined by the
Tri-Track Open Modified Series, NELCAR Legends,
Northeast Classic Lites, Oxford Plains Street Stocks,
and Wicked Good Vintage Racing Association for one hot
night on the historic 3/8-mile oval.
thrilled to have ACT back for the Oxford 250 weekend
again," Oxford Plains Speedway President Tom Mayberry
said. "Every time they've visited Oxford the last few
years, they've put on a fantastic race, and the outcome
is almost never decided until the final laps.
Championship implications are once again on the line, so
we're sure it's going to be another intense race from
start to finish."
With three point-counting races
remaining, two racers have stood out above all others in
2019. Plainfield, NH's Rich Dubeau currently leads
Williamstown, VT's Jimmy Hebert by 21 points in the
overall standings. They're the only two drivers to
finish in the top-10 at every event this year. That
consistency has put both in position to claim their
first ACT title.
The two off-track friends have
much in common. Both are former ACT Rookie of the Year
honorees, both won lower-division weekly championships
before joining ACT, and both scored wins in this year's
Summer Kickoff Series. However, with a championship and
its $10,000 point fund prize on the line, neither will
be cutting the other any breaks once the green flag
One driver who still has a reasonable
chance to catch them is Colchester, VT's Scott Payea.
The two-time defending champion is 60 points behind
Dubeau and will need a lot to go in his favor --
especially after he and Hebert tangled fighting for the
lead late in the Midsummer 250 two weeks ago. But his
RPM Racing team is the same team that helped him win the
last two titles, and they may well have one more push
A strong field is expected for this
weekend's Oxford Plains 150 as pre-entry numbers are
near those for the Midsummer 250. Newmarket, NH's Bryan
Kruczek, who won the ACT event at Oxford in April, is
going for the season sweep. White Mountain Motorsports
Park Late Model point leader Quinny Welch of Groveton,
NH will take advantage of the track's weekend off and
head to Maine in search of his first ACT win.
Father/son duo John and Stephen Donahue of Graniteville,
VT are both attempting to qualify for the event. Berlin,
NH's Cody LeBlanc is trying to follow up on a solid
showing at the Midsummer 250 while Thompson Speedway
regular Michael Benevides is making the trip north from
Westerly, RI. Entries have also been received from N.
Haverhill, NH's Ryan Olsen and New Gloucester, ME's
David MacDonald while Richard Green Racing has stated
they will bring Scott Dragon's #16VT to Oxford.
They'll join the rest of the ACT Late Model Tour
regulars for 150 green-flag laps of edge-of-your-seat
action. E. Bridgewater, MA's Ryan Kyan is running away
with the Rookie of the Year title while Milton, VT's
Dylan Payea has put together a strong follow-up to last
year's Rookie honors. Jonathan Bouvrette, Christopher
Pelkey, Scott Coburn, and others are all looking to put
the finishing touches on solid seasons with a strong
Post time is 4:30pm for the "Night Before
the 250" at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday,

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
"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.
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."
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
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
"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."
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.
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."
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.
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
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.
,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
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.
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
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
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
