Former Track Champion Dennis Spencer
Back in Victory Lane on Applebee's Night
10 different winners in 10 weeks for headline
Super Late Model class this year.
Oxford, Maine - Dennis Spencer, Jr. of Oxford returned to victory lane at Oxford Plains Speedway, claiming his first Super Late Model victory since returning to action last year before a healthy Applebee's Night crowd.

Spencer led the early stages of the race before yielding the top spot to Scarborough's Mike Fowler, then stalked the new frontrunner for several laps before powering around him in the outside groove in the closing laps.

Fowler and Derek Griffith of Hudson, New Hampshire were second and third-place finishers, respectively. Trevor Sanborn borrowed the Benjamin 17 and raced to a fourth-place finish, in front of Hebron's Alan Wilson.

None of the previous nine winners from earlier in this season were able to finish among the top five in the unusually-competitive top class. Spencer and Fowler won the 12-lap Super Late Model heat races.

Matt Dufault of Turner dominated the 30-lap feature race for Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Street Stocks, a week after winning a thriller where he passed most of the field twice aboard the Rodney Williams 61. Oxford's Kim 'Dog' Tripp led the race before Dufault went by, and then raced to runner-up honors to the delight of the healthy Holiday crowd.

Turner's Calvin Rose, Jr., last year's Street Stock Rookie of the Year and the current points leader, claimed the third-place trophy. Sabattus racers Zach Emerson and Andrew Breton rounded out the top five. The two heat race wins were earned by to Dufault and Bryce Mains of Naples.

Michael McKinney of Berlin, New Hampshire capped off the best night of his racing career with a win in the 20-lap finale for MacDonald Motors of Bridgton Bandits division competitors. McKinney was also triumphant in the NAPA OAS Cruiser class.

Runner-up Tyler Green of Turner battled McKinney throughout the Bandits' 20-lapper, with Charlie Hall of Oxford third under the checkered flag. Oxford's Jacob Hall and Cam Child of Leeds rounded out the top five. Brian Hiscock of Turner and McKinney were heat race winners.

Reigning Figure 8 Champion Jon Lizotte of Lewiston returned to victory lane in a 15-lap race for the Dave's Small Engine / Ariens / Gravely-sponsored class. Lizotte took charge when the previous week's winner, David Smith of South Paris, opened the door for the Maine Hall of Famer. Smith salvaged runner-up honors in front of South Paris driver Kyle Kilgore. Minot's Eric Hodgkins and Greg Durgin of South Paris rounded out the top five.

Austin Teras of Windham extended his track championship point lead with a win in the 25-lap feature race for INEX Legends Cars. Buckfield's Chris Burgess led all but the final lap after being forced from the lead, while Kyle Hewins of Leeds earned a second trophy in his second Legends Cars start. Ben Tinker of New Gloucester and Hiram's Roger Edgecomb rounded out the top five. Thomas Everson of Gilmanton Iron Works, New Hampshire, and Burgess were heat race winners.

Gary Babineau of Hollis Center won his second straight 25-lap Outlaw feature race, outrunning proven champion Steve Moon of Gray to the checkered flag. Caleb Emerson-Mains of New Gloucester, Billy Childs of Leeds and Portland's Andy King rounded out the top five. Mark Turner of Norway and Buckfield's Gerry Freve won heat races.

Auburn's Rick Montminy scored a popular, first-ever win in the 20-lap feature race for Runnin' Rebel division competitors. Montminy turned back a late challenge by Cam Childs of Leeds to post the victory, after surviving earlier tests by proven winners Dustin Salley of Poland and Shaun Hinkley of Oxford. Childs, Salley and Hinkley chased Montminy under the checkered flag in that order, with the top five filled out by Auburn's Brandon Varney. Hinkley and Salley won heat races.

McKinney's Cruiser division win was his first of two on the night. He also won the heat race. John Childs of Leeds mounted a stiff challenge, but ended up in second position. Auburn's Mikel Martin claimed the third-place trophy. Paul Rowe of South Paris was fourth across the finish line, followed by Auburn's John Poulin.

Casco's Mark Grantham led wire-to-wire to win the Sport Truck 20-lapper. Corey Williams of Sumner prevailed in a spirited battle for second with Ajay Cates of Biddeford. Kyle Hewins of Leeds and Ryan Farrar of Livermore Falls rounded out the top five. Grantham also won the heat race.

Shelby Shurtleff of Dixfield muscled by Maggie Ferland of Poland on the final lap to win the Ladies division 20-lap main event. Carleigh Vaughn of Naples was third, followed by Sue Veinott of Greene and Mexico's Anne Chartier. Ferland won the heat race.
