Tim Brackett Best in
|Oxford, Maine -- Tim Brackett of
Buckfield topped the card of winners in Oxford
Championship Series competition Saturday night at Oxford
Plains Speedway. Brackett scored his victory in the
50-lap main event for Budweiser Pro Late Models,
wheeling his NAPA Auto Parts-sponsored car into victory
lane on Dave’s Small Engines / Walker Mowers Night.
Brackett’s win snapped a two-race win streak posted
by his son, TJ Brackett. The elder Brackett, a former
champion in the top class at OPS, worked his way into
contention and took the lead away from Quinny Welch of
Lancaster, New Hampshire late in the headline event on
the card. Welch managed to outrun the balance of the
field to the checkered flag to post a well-earned
While Buckfield’s TJ
Brackett saw his two-race Pro Late Model win streak
halted, he managed gained ground in his quest for the
2014 track title with a third-place finish, two spots
better than his chief title rival, Shawn Martin of
Turner. Unofficially, Martin hold a two-point advantage
over the junior Brackett, with two scheduled events
remaining on the OCS schedule.
Chris Coolidge of
Bryant Pond claimed fourth-place honors in the top class
finale. Shane Green of South Paris, the elder Brackett
and Kyle DeSouza of East Providence, Rhode Island were
heat race winners in the premier weekly class at OPS.
Kurt Hewins of Leeds prevailed in the 35-lap Allen’s
Coffee-Flavored Brandy Street Stock division main event,
earning his trip to victory lane from only a row shy of
dead last on the starting grid.
“It’s good to be
back home,” Hewins said from victory lane, in his third
race since rejoining the division after a disappointing
effort in the top-tier Pro Late Model class. Admitting
that he needed to drop back in order to have fun racing
again, Hewins said “I’ve got to thank everyone who
helped me with the Pro Stock. We were struggling.”
BJ Chapman of Bridgton led the vast majority of the
headlining event for the top Oxford Championship Series
support division, which performed spectacularly for the
enthusiastic crowd, appreciative of frequent three-wide
attempts throughout the running order. Chapman was the
best of the rest, with the podium filled out by the
previous week’s winner, Ryan Hewins of Oxford.
Zach Emerson of Sabattus raced among the leaders
throughout the race, just missing out on a trophy. Corey
Morgan of Lewiston logged the most miles in the outside
grooves to earn the final top-five position. Spencer
Morse of Waterford and Chapman were heat race winners.
Neil Martin of Freeport charged from the back of
the pack to score a popular victory aboard his number 1
car replicating championship-winning cars for multi-time
Oxford Plains Speedway champion and Maine Hall of Famer
Al Hammond, who passed away prior to this season.
Martin’s triumph came in a 20-lap race for Wicked Good
Vintage Racing Association competitiors.
real tribute to Albert” said Martin, referring to his
winning mount, reminiscent of Hammond’s
championship-winning Chevrolets from the early
seventies. “I’m proud to carry his colors tonight.”
Hal Clark of Bridgton romped to heat race and main
event victories in Wicked Good Vintage Racing
Association Late Model/Modified/Hobby action. Nate
Symonds of Casco, Mike Willette of Winslow, Greg Inman
of South Paris and George Harding of Fairfield rounded
out the top-five.
Troy Jordan of Turner certainly
didn’t hurt his championship hopes in Ripley & Fletcher
Ford Outlaw Sportsman competition. Jordan scored an
impressive victory in the 30-lap main event, and
maintains a healthy advantage in the title bout.
Guy Childs, Sr. of Sabattus was the best of the rest,
claiming runner-up honors in front of Dale Lawrence, who
led the early portion of the race before Jordan took
command for good. Auburn’s Steve Moon and Gerry Freve of
Buckfield rounded out the top-five. Lawrence and Moon
won 10-lap heats earlier in the evening.
