"ROAD to the OXFORD 250"
Joey Doiron caps off fabulous
with Sunday 150-lap
Pro All Stars Series score
at Oxford Plains Speedway
Oxford, Maine - Joey Doiron of Berwick outgunned
Joey Polewarczyk of Hudson, New Hampshire Sunday
afternoon in the 150-lap Pro All Stars Series North
Super Late Model race, topping the card at Oxford Plains
Doiron, who also won a Super Late Model
race the previous evening at his current home track,
swapped the race lead with Polewarczyk on five occasions
during the event. Polewarczyk had looked dominant
through most of the distance, leading all but 11 of the
first 140 laps.
Tire conservation by Doiron
played a huge role in the victory, with the eventual
winner aided by a late-race restart that erased a
three-second advantage held by Polewarczyk. Doiron led
the final ten circuits to post the win, and earned a
guaranteed starting spot in the rich, upcoming Oxford
250, scheduled for Sunday, August 27.
Mike Landry spent most of the race holding down the
third position, but a late-race caution set up a
green-white-checkered race finish and Landry managed to
get past Polewarczyk for runner-up honors. Polewarczyk
finished third, and consoled himself with the knowledge
that he has a preferred starting spot in the August
Glen Luce of Turner and reigning PASS
Super Late Model champion DJ Shaw of Center Conway, Ne3w
Hampshire rounded out the top five. Tracy Gordon, Matt
Swanson, Dave Farrington, Jr., Travis Benjamin and Reid
Lanpher completed the top-ten rundown. Luce, Polewarczyk
and Turner's Mike Rowe were Super Late Model heat race
Kyle Hewins of Leeds raced to an
impressive win in a special, 25-lap Bandits race with a
substantially-boosted purse. Hewins' closest rival at
the finish was reigning division champion Jamie Heath of
Waterford, bouncing back after bouncing off the
frontstretch wall on the previous night.
Jordan of Auburn was happy with a third-place finish
after racing with some of the best Bandits. Chachi Hall
and Jake Hall, teammates from Oxford, completed the top
five. Jordan and Hewins won heat races.
Mains of Bridgton won his second Allen's Coffee Flavored
Brandy Street Stock race of the weekend in Sunday's
20-lap special. Mains has won three times when points
are not on the line this season.
Tyler King of
Livermore was the best of the rest in Street Stock
action, with Mark Turner of Norway crossing the finish
line in third position. Auburn's Mike Short and Shawn
Knight of South Paris filled out the top-five rundown.
Mains also won the heat race.
Mark Theriault of
East Milton prevailed in a competitive, 20-lap race for
the Wicked Good Vintage Racing Association, winning
aboard his 1963 Chevy II. Arthur Hannaford made a
brilliant move in lapped traffic to earn runner-up
honors on the final laps.
Bobby Symonds of Casco
passed a lot of car after being spun while up front and
bounced back to finish third in his 1957 Chevrolet. Neil
Martin of Freeport and West Paris racer Kevin Waterhouse
rounded out the top five.
