Late Model Victory
Oxford, Maine - Multi-time track champion Shawn
Martin of Turner earned his first win of the season
Saturday night in the 50-lap Super Late Model main
event, topping the Budweiser Championship Series racing
card at Oxford Plains Speedway.
Martin built a
healthy lead early in the non-stop race, which took a
tick less than 13-1/2 minutes to complete, then coasted
to victory lane by a hair over 2-1/2 seconds in front of
Super Late Model freshman Ryan Robbins of Dixfield.
Robbins, a former Mod division champion at Oxford,
claimed his first trophy in the top class after taking
second position away from reigning track champion Timmy
Brackett of Buckfield. Brackett held on for a
third-place finish, a highlight in this disappointing
season for the four-time titlist.
Moore raced to an impressive, fourth-place finish. Andy
Saunders of Ellsworth, the winner in Monday night's
Super Late Model main event, raced from 16th starting
position to finish fifth in the caution-free 50-lapper.
TJ Brackett of Buckfield, rookie Calvin Rose, Jr. of
Turner, championship points leader Alan Tardiff of
Lyman, Dennis Spencer, Jr. of Oxford and Dixfield's
Scott Robbins filled out the top ten. Martin and
Saunders were triumphant in the 12-lap Super Late Model
Tyler King of Livermore claimed his
second victory of the season in the 30-lap Allen's
Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock main event, using
the outside groove to take command late in the race, and
then outrunning Bridgton's Bryce Mains to the checkered
Championship points leader Billy Childs,
Jr. of Leeds celebrated the arrival of his newborn twins
with a last-lap charge into third position. Turner's
Matt Dufault led more than half of the race before
Childs nipped him at the line for third. Mark Turner of
Norway completed the top-five rundown. King also won the
Former Bandits division champion Shaun
Hinkley of Oxford cruised to victory lane following his
20-lap, wire-to-wire triumph. Hinkley's closest rival as
the checkered flag waved was Oxford's Chad Wills.
Reigning Bandits champion Jamie Heath of Waterford
was forced to settle for a third-place finish, hugging
the inside line behind runner-up Wills while nursing a
flat left rear tire. Auburn's Brandon Varney finished in
fourth position, followed by Adam Sanborn of West Paris.
Hinkley and Sanborn won heat races.
of Minot outran all of his rivals in a Figure 8 race
that was red-flagged at one point when the previous
week's winner, Kyle Kilgore of South Paris, landed on
top of points leader Tommy Tompkins at the intersection.
Hodgkins went on to victory over David Smith of
South Paris and Lisbon's Dale Lawrence. Tompkins bounced
back to finish fourth after pitting for repairs.
Oxford's Kyle Glover rounded out the top five.
