Sweet Earns First Win at Oxford
during the PASS 150

OXFORD - Nick Sweet of Barre, VT took the checkered this past Sunday at Oxford Plains Speedway during the PASS 150, earning his first win at Oxford.

Kate Re of Lovell picked up her 2nd win of the season in the PASS Mods. The 15-year-old took the lead from early leader Mike Carrigan before lap 10 and pulled away from the field. After Carrigan fell back Spencer Morse quickly took over 2nd with Jariet Harrison in 3rd. By Lap 30 Re had already lapped the rear of the field, but Morse was finally catching up to her. After a caution on lap 34, Tyler King passed Harrison for 3rd during lap 37. Kate Re lead the rest of feature in front of the 20-car field, a record field this season in the division. Home track hero, Spencer Morse of Waterford settled for 2nd place while Tyler King of Gray finished in 3rd. Jarriet Harrison of Freeport and Mike Carrigan of Lebanon rounded out the top 5.

Bryce Mains of Naples officially took home $1,000 and the Street Stock Showdown Series win after an eventful 50 lap feature. Billy Childs Jr. took the early lead with Jordan Russell behind him in 2nd while Matty Dufault and Shawn Knight battled for 2nd. Knight squeezed down bottom on lap 5, passing both Dufault and Russell for 2nd place. Knight quickly made it up to Childs and took the lead from him on lap 10. 11 laps later the first caution of the race came out. On the restart things got wild. Russell, Childs, and Knight got together on the back stretch and ended up going off turn 3. Knight and Russell were able to drive back to the pits but were not able to finish the race. Childs' car wasn't drivable and had to be hauled back to the pits. Gary Babineau took the lead on the restart with Connor McDougal in 2nd. Dufault and Bryce Mains raced for 3rd before Bryce passed McDougal for 2nd on lap 31. McDougal fell back leaving Dufault and Hewins to battle for 3rd.

Gary Babineau ended up taking the checkered and was full of emotion after losing his mother-in-law in recent weeks. Unfortunately, Babineau, Kurt Hewins, Matt Dufault, and Pat Thorne were all disqualified in tech for lightweight flywheels. After tech Bryce Mains was declared the winner, with Skip Stanley of Oxford getting 2nd and David Whittier of Poland taking home 3rd.

Johnny Clark started pole for the Pro All Star Series 150 lapper, with Jeremy Davis in 2nd and Mike Hopkins in 3rd. The first caution came out on lap 15 when Jeff White spun collecting Alan Wilson. Clark continued leading on the restart, as Reid Lanpher moved into 2nd and Nick Sweet pulled up to 3rd. After passing Lanpher, Sweet moved to the outside of Clark on lap 38 and took the lead one lap later. Sweet broke away and began lapping the rear of the field by lap 42. While Sweet was running away from the field, Curtis Gerry was making his way through the field after starting mid pack. Gerry passed Lanpher for 3rd on lap 46 before passing Clark shortly after. A string of cautions came out but Sweet was able to keep Gerry at bay. Eddie MacDonald took 3rd from Hopkins on lap 83 and remained there until Ben Rowe snuck up and took away 3rd on lap 121.

Gerry was on Sweet's bumper during the closing laps and we all were waiting for him to make a move and take the lead but it never happened. Nick Sweet finally captured a win after being a bridesmaid all season. Current OPS SLM points leader and winner of 2 PASS races at Oxford this season, Curtis Gerry of Waterboro settled for 2nd place. Ben Rowe of Turner took home 3rd place after slicing through the field after an early pit stop. Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, MA and Scott Robbins of Dixfield finished 4th and 5th respectively.

Final PASS Tune-Up For 250
This Weekend At Oxford Plains
NAPLES, ME (August 9) - With just two weeks remaining before the green flag drops on the 46th Annual Oxford 250, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Model drivers will get one last chance this weekend to prep at Oxford Plains Speedway. The Honey Badger Bar & Grill 150 on Sunday afternoon will give racers their best opportunity to hit the track in similar conditions to those they will experience in the 250. And, as the last race in "The Road To The Oxford 250" program, a final group of drivers will get the honor of being locked in to North America's most prestigious Super Late Model event. Competitors will have the opportunity to race for one of the richest winner's purses in asphalt short track racing, with $25,000 to win, plus an additional $25,000 in lap leader money. Last year's winner, Bubba Pollard of Senoia, GA, took home over $28,000 last year for his efforts in becoming the first southern driver to win the Oxford 250 since 1983. While no one in the last two decades has led more than Joey Polewarcyzk's 205 laps in 2012, if a driver could somehow manage to lead all 250 laps, they would take home $50,000 for the win.

The huge weekend of racing at Oxford Plains Speedway as part of the 250 on August 23-25 will see a variety of cars from across the spectrum of short track racing. On Saturday, August 24, the ACT Late Models will return to Oxford Plains Speedway, along with the Tour-Type Modifieds of the Tri-Track Open Modified Series. Drivers like Ron Silk, Matt Hirschman, Woody Pitkat, Matt Swanson, Andy Jankowiak and more are all expected to compete on The Night Before The 250 at Oxford Plains.

But, before all that can happen, the PASS Super Late Model racers will have to survive this weekend's Honey Badger Bar & Grill 150 and get their cars tuned up for the big race in two weeks. Curtis Gerry of Waterboro, ME won the 250 in 2017 and has been the man to beat lately in weekly competition at Oxford Plains this season. Gerry believes he and his team or even better prepared going into this year's race than they were in 2017.

"This will be a great race for us to continue fine tuning, especially our late race strategy," says Gerry, driver of the Saco House of Pizza/Racing Radios/ Ripley & Fletcher Ford #7G. "Our confidence is high going into the 250, we need a good heat race draw and no issues."

The see-saw battle for the PAS North Super Late Model championship also continues on Sunday afternoon at Oxford Plains. Following DJ Shaw's big win at Spud Speedway last weekend, he has lengthened his lead in the standings as he seeks his fourth series title. Still, he is only 12 points ahead of two-time PASS Oxford winner, Garrett Hall, and 26 markers ahead of Vermont's Nick Sweet, who battled with Shaw for the win at Spud.

Joining the title contenders on Sunday at Oxford include, former 250 winners, Ben Rowe, Travis Benjamin, and Scott Robbins. 6-time PASS North titlist, Johnny Clark, is entered, along with former Oxford Plains track champions, Gabe Brown and Tim Brackett. Michael Scorzelli from New York will be making the trip, while Maine racers Ryan Green, Reid Lanpher, Scott McDaniel, John Peters, Bill Rodgers, Trevor Sanborn, and Jeff While are also on the pre-entry list.

Everything at Oxford Plains begins on Saturday, August 10 at 7 PM with the Budweiser Championship Series, featuring the Super Late Models, Street Stocks, Bandits, Figure 8s, and Rookies. On Sunday, August 11, practice begins at 2:45 PM, followed by heat races and features beginning at 5 PM for the PASS North Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds, and Street Stocks.

Entry forms for the 46thAnnual Oxford 250 and the Lanier National 200 at Lanier Raceplex in Georgia are available at ProAllStarsSeries.com.
