DJ Shaw Wins Final 50-lap
Model Race Before Next Sunday’s 44th Annual Oxford 250
Oxford, Maine - DJ Shaw of Center Conway, New
Hampshire dominated the Super Late Model action Saturday
night at Oxford Plains Speedway, winning the 50-lap
headline Budweiser Championship Series race handily.
Shaw, the two-time and defending Pro All Stars
Series Super Late Model Champion, quickly made his way
up into contention from his mid-pack starting slot and
easily maintained his advantage once in front of the
field aboard his Precision JLM 60.
Brackett, a two-time champion in the top-tier Budweiser
Championship Series class, made a late charge into
second position, unofficially taking over the top spot
in the battle for the Super Late Model championship at
the historic oval track on Route 26. Brackett's rise
locks up a starting spot in next Sunday's rich Scott's
Recreation Oxford 250.
Gabe Brown, a 14-year-old
rookie from Center Conway, New Hampshire, claimed his
second straight trophy with a third-place finish in just
his fourth Super Late Model race. Scott Moore of Anson
raced with the leaders throughout the event and finished
in fourth position. Winterport's Ryan Deane made a
last-lap move into the top five, just .019-seconds
better than Alan Wilson of Hebron.
of Lyman, who had entered the night leading the
championship standings, got spun twice in the race, yet
managed to finish seventh after passing several car as
many as three times during the 50-lap finale. The top
ten was completed by Connecticut's Ray Christian III,
Kyle Hewisn of Leeds and defending track champion Timmy
Brackett of Buckfield.
Bryce Mains of Bridgton
won his fourth 30-lap Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy
Street Stock main event of the season, and seventh
victory overall counting special, extended-distance quad
series races. Mains started tenth and quickly worked his
way up to battle early race leader Kurt Hewins of Leeds.
Once in front Mains was unstoppable, outrunning
Livermore's Tyler King to the checkered flag. Early race
leader Hewins ended up in third position. Green's Zach
Bowie and Jordan Russell of Norway rounded out the top
Rob Crepeau of Minot led just about the
entire 20-lap Bandits race, posting his first victory in
the class. But it was no easy cruise to the checkered
flag, as runner-up Josh Knoll spent most of the race
alongside the eventual winner. Oxford's Chad Wills
claimed the third-place trophy. Berlin, New Hampshire's
Mike McKinney and Adam Sanborn of West Paris rounded out
the top five.
Eric Hodgkins of Minot raced to his
fifth 15-lap Figure 8 win of the season, wasting little
time getting to the lead after starting from fourth
position. Kyle Kilgore of South Paris was the best of
the rest, with championship points leader Tommy Tompkins
of Carthage third under the checkered flag. Lisbon's
Dale Lawrence and David Smith of South Paris rounded out
the top five.
