ALAN TARDIFF SCORES FIRST-EVER
SUPER LATE MODEL WIN
Oxford, Maine - Alan Tardiff of Lyman drove to a
convincing victory in Saturday night's Budweiser
Championship Series Super Late Model main event at
Oxford Plains Speedway.
Tardiff has come out of
the blocks impressively this season, holding an
early-season advantage in the championship points
standings at the historic Route 26 oval track. He
outgunned fellow front row starter Andy Saunders of
Ellsworth at the start of the 50-lap race and was never
Glen Luce of Turner chased Tardiff under
the checkered flag. Luce, the 2015 Oxford 250 champion,
started the race from 13th position, winning a late
battle for runner-up honors with former track champion
Shawn Martin, also from Turner.
Saunders ended up
in fourth position, with the top five filled out by
Lonnie Sommerville of Barnesville, New Brunswick,
Canada. Travis Stearns of Auburn won a 12-lap heat race,
as did Saunders and Sommerville.
Bryce Mains of
Naples bounced back from a bad week with a 30-lap
victory in the Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street
Stock race. Mains had to turn back a late challenge from
the current leader in the championship standing, Billy
Childs of Leeds, to claim victory.
Tyler King of
Livermore nailed down a third-place finish after a
couple of Late-race restarts helped his cause. Rick
Spaulding of Lisbon had a much stronger run than his
fourth-place finish would indicate. Tyson Jordan of
Oxford made his first appearance of the season and ended
up with a fifth-place finish. Mains and Childs won the
Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock heat races.
Trevor Sanborn of East Parsonsfield charged from the
back of the starting lineup into victory lane in the
25-lap INEX Legends Cars main event. Sanborn got by
Casey Call of Pembroke, New Hampshire to get the race
lead, and then held off Buckfield's Chris Burgess to
post the victory.
Call was third across the
finish line, followed by Thomas Everson of Gilmanton,
New Hampshire and Poland's Peter Craig. Sanborn also won
the heat race for Legends Cars.
Brandon Varney of
Auburn led all of the way to win a closely-contested,
20-lap Bandits division main event. Varney, who had
wrecked his own car the previous week, borrowed an old
car owned by Oxford's Chachi Hall and held off all
challengers throughout the evening.
of West Paris provided pressure to the leader throughout
the race and crossed the line in second position.
Waterford's Bill Grover was the third-place finisher,
just ahead of a hard-charging Tyler Green of Turner.
Hall, who provided Varney's winning mount, picked up
a fifth-place finish and moved to the top of the
championship points standings for the Bandits division.
Rob Crepeau of Minot and Varney won the heat races.
Eric Hodgkins of Minot raced to his first victory of
the season in the 15-lap Figure 8 race. Hodgkins led the
entire distance, and was just able to hold off points
leader Tommy Tompkins of Carthage under the checkered
flag. OPS Figure 8 legend David Smith of South Paris
earned the third-place trophy. Kyle Kilgore of South
Paris and Lisbon's Dale Lawrence rounded out the top
