FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT
OXFORD CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
FRIDAY, JULY 10th
Third Super Late Model win for
Brackett Tops Budweiser OCS
Oxford, Maine - Timmy Brackett of Buckfield
scored his third Budweiser Super Late Model victory of
the season Friday night before a large Fan Appreciation
Night crowd taking in the Oxford Championship Series
stock car racing card at Oxford Plains Speedway.
Brackett's 50-lap score came from deep in the starting
field, working his way into second position behind Shawn
Knight of South Paris before prevailing on a late-race
restart following the event's final caution flag with
seven laps remaining.
Brackett padded his lead
atop the OPS Super Late Model championship point
standings. He is the only competitor in the track's top
class to post more than one 50-lap victory to this point
in the season.
Former track champion Dennis
Spencer, Jr. of Oxford made a late charge into second
position under the checkered flag. Spencer, a former
track champion who returned to competition just a couple
of weeks ago, looks to have brushed off any rust in
Knight, who took the lead away from
Vanna Brackett after a spirited battle that saw Vanna
spin from contention for the win after some contact.
Fourth-place finisher Alan Wilson of Hebron also swapped
the lead with Vanna before fading slightly in the
closing stages of the race.
Former track champion
Shawn Martin of Turner claimed fifth position. Gunnar
Rowe, Scott Robbins, Vanna Brackett, Chuck Colby and
Spencer Morse rounded out the top ten. Rowe and Colby
won heat races.
Rick Spaulding of Lisbon
prevailed in Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stock
competition, picking up his second victory of the 2015
campaign. Zach Emerson of Sabattus kept his position
atop the championship standings with a runner-up finish.
Oxford's Josh Childs, seeking a second straight win,
climbed through the field to claim the final Street
Stock trophy. Leading Street Stock rookie Calvin Rose,
Jr. of Turner was fourth, followed by Harrison's Gary
Davis. Spaulding and Davis won heat races.
Lizotte of Mechanic Falls kept his perfect record intact
during the 15-lap Figure 8 race, which featured a
thrilling, near-flip that excited the large crowd
performed by Wayne Ambrose of Brunswick.
Higgins of Brunswick chased Lizotte under the checkered
flag, equaling his best run this season. Eric Hodgkins
of Auburn finished up in third position, followed by
Mike St. Germain of Auburn and Ambrose.
Hewins of Leeds got to the front of the pack early and
cruised to victory lane following the 20-lap main event
for the Bandits division. Fellow Leeds racer Cam Childs
was the best of the rest, with Ryan Kane of Oxford a
fast-closing third-place finisher under the checkered
Oxford's Shaun Hinkley padded his lead in
the championship standings with a fourth-place
performance. Richard Kimball of Mechanic Falls was
fifth. Hewins and Hinkley won heat races.
Budweiser Championship Series returns to Oxford Plains
Speedway on Saturday, July 25 with a racing card
presented by Dave's Small Engines and Walker Mowers. The
