SUPER LATE MODEL RACE AT
OXFORD PLAINS SPEEDWAY
Oxford, Maine - TJ Brackett of Buckfield earned
his first Budweiser Championship Series Super Late Model
victory of the season in the 50-lap headline race at
Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday night.
Brackett, wrecked by an errant lapped car when last seen
leading the main event just a few days previous to this
triumph, built a comfortable advantage in front of the
field once past fellow former track champion Shawn
Martin of Turner.
Martin and the current
championship points leader in the Super Late Model
class, Alan Tardiff of Lyman, later squared off in an
entertaining battle for runner-up honors, with Tardiff
prevailing. Andy Saunders of Ellsworth again raced among
the frontrunners throughout the race and earned a
Windham's JT Thurlow had a
strong run to claim the final top-five slot. Brad Babb,
Kyle Treadwell, Dennis Spencer, Jr., Timmy Brackett and
Alan Wilson rounded out the top ten. Martin and Thurlow
were triumphant in 12-lap heat races.
Childs, Jr. of Leeds dominated the action in the Allen's
Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock division. While
Norway's Mark Turner did manage to outlast Childs in a
10-lap heat race, in the 30-lap finale the current
championship points leader was on his game.
Mains of Bridgton earned runner-up honors after a
hard-fought battle with Lisbon's Rick Spaulding. Mains
raced three-wide on the outside for two full laps to get
into a position to duel with Spaulding in impressive
fashion. Spaulding claimed the third-place trophy, with
Matt Dufault of Turner and West Poland's David Whittier
rounding out the top five.
Auburn's Scott Jordan
earned his first official victory of the year in a
20-lap main event for the Bandits division. Jordan held
off last year's champion, Jamie Heath of Waterford, to
stand atop the podium. Heath was lined up in sixteenth
position on the starting grid.
Chachi Hall, the current leader in the Bandits
division's championship battle, padded that advantage
with a third-place run. Adam Sanborn of West Paris and
Auburn's Tyler Jalbert rounded out the top five. Sanborn
and Eric Stoddard of South Paris won Bandits division

previous week's winner, rnded up wuth the third-place
trophy. South Paris racers David Smith and Kyle Kilgore
rounded out the top five.

Hollis outgunned Bobby Symonds of Casco in an
entertaining 20-lap race for the Wicked Good Vintage
Racing Association Oultlaw class. That battle for the
win was made possible by third-place finisher Sid
Smith's spin. The Mount Vernon driver then made up more
than half of his near-lap deficit to earn third-place
Freeport's Neil Martin dominated the
Wicked Good Late Model 20-lapper, driving his 1965
Chevelle Albert Hammond tribute car. Hammond was a
popular, multi-time Oxford Plains Speedway champion and

Paris was second aboard a Studebaker, with Detroit's
Dean Grant third in a 1955 Chevy.

Bridgton prevailed in a 15-lap race for the Wicked Good

of rivals on his way to claiming runner-up honors.
