track champion TJ Brackett
wins Super Late
Model race at OPS,
- Buckfield's TJ Brackett nailed down his second
Budweiser Championship Series Super Late Model
win of the season in Saturday night's 50-lap
Super Late Model race at Oxford Plains Speedway.
Brackett, a two-time champion of the top
class at OPS, battled hard for the victory
against Auburn's Travis Stearns, in Stearns best
run since moving into the Super Late Model
division after a very successful run in Late
Even after yielding the race lead
to Brackett, Stearns was a threat to win, racing
hard and even with the eventual winner in the
outside groove for several laps on cold tires.
In the end Brackett won by 1.04-seconds over
Stearns. Rhode Island native Kyle DeSouza, now
living in South Carolina, made a rare OPS start
pay off with a third-place finish.
Buckfield's Kyle Treadwell fought his way to a
fourth-place finish, with Super Late Model
rookie Ryan Robbins of Dixfield rounding out the
top five. The previous week's winner, four-time
and reigning track champion Timmy Brackett of
Buckfield just missed out on a top-five finish.
It was a good night both inside and outside of
the cockpit for winner TJ Brackett, whose shop
often hosts the cars that finished third, fourth
Dennis Spencer, Jr. of Oxford
ended up in seventh position. Current
championship points leader Alan Tardiff of Lyman
was eighth, just in front of his closest
championship rival, Andy Saunders of Ellsworth.
Gabe Brown of Center Conway, New Hampshire
started at the back of the pack and finished
tenth in his first Super Late Model race.
Bryce Mains of Bridgton made the best season
of his racing career a bit sweeter, winning the
30-lap Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street
Stock race by a comfortable margin. It was the
sixth win of the season for Mains between the
weekly racing series events and the special
Street Stock Quad Series races, two of which are
at Scarborough's Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.
Mains took the lead away from Matt Dufault
of Turner, who led the first ten laps and ran in
second position until limping to a fifth-place
finish when something broke with only a couple
of laps to go. Livermore's Tyler King made a
late charge into second position, with points
leader Billy Childs, Jr. of Leeds claiming
third-place honors. David Whittier of Poland was
fourth under the checkered flag. Mains won the
Richard Kimball of Mechanic
Falls raced to a career-first OPS Budweiser
Championship Series victory in the 20-lap main
event for the Bandits division. Kimball quickly
moved up through traffic to take a lead he would
not relinquish in the 28-car, non-stop
Chad 'Joe Dirt' Wills
of Oxford outgunned Kyle Hewins Motorsports
teammate Adam 'Larry Bandito' Sanborn of West
Paris for runner-up honors. Last year's
champion, Jamie Heath of Waterford, raced from
the back of the pack to finish fourth without
the benefit of a caution flag.
'Tornado' Verrill of South Paris raced to a
top-five finish in the Bandit division's main
event. Verrill and Eric Stoddard of South Paris
won heat races in the Bandit class.
Legendary Oxford Plains Speedway Figure 8 racer
David Smith of South Paris claimed victory in a
wild 15-lap Figure 8 race. Just about everyone
else suffered through one problem or another,
with Tommy Tompkins posting a runner-up finish.
Kyle Kilgore passed a ton of cars, many two or
three times, to earn third-place hardware. Eric
Hodgkins of Minot and Lisbon's dale Lawrence
rounded out the top five.
Corey Hall of
Jolicure, New Brunswick emerged triumphantly
from the 25-lap main event for INEX Legends
Cars. New Hampshire invader Thomas Everson of
Gilmanton claimed runner-up honors, with the
podium filled out by reigning track champion
Austin Teras of Windham. Poland's Peter Craig
was fourth, followed by Buxton's Colby Meserve.
Casey Call of Pembroke, New Hampshire won the
heat race and led about half of the feature race
before misfortune set in.
