Among the highlights are the Modified Racing Series, American Canadian Tour, New England Mini Stock Tour, Street Stock Triple Crown and the PASS MODS 75 lap special.

"We feel like we have a great lineup of events for this year's 250 weekend," Said OPS President Tom Mayberry. "We try to present a diverse schedule of events that has something that will appeal to every race fan throughout the weekend. Of course the big event is the 250 itself on Sunday, but some of the best racing sometimes comes in the preliminary events leading up to the big race."

The weekend will kick off on Friday August 27th with an open practice for the Super Late Models and PASS MODS from Noon to 3:40. Pits open at 10 AM and grandstands at Noon. Following the open practice racing will be on tap for five of the Oxford Acceleration Divisions as well as Bandits, Street Stocks, and Rookies. Post time for Friday is 6:00 PM and adult grandstand tickets are $15.

The weekend moves onto Saturday the 28th with several touring divisions coming into town for their races after a 10:00 AM to Noon practice session for Super Late Models. The American Canadian Tour makes its annual 250 weekend stop at the speedway for a 100 lap event. The Modified Racing Series was recently added to the Saturday program for a 75 lap event for the high powered open wheel cars. Street Stocks, Classic Lights, and the Wicked Good Vintage Auto Racing Series are also on the card. Highlighting the Saturday program will be the PASS MODS division for its extended feature 75 lap event.

"The Pass MODS have grown so much over the past two years and matured into a tour that has some great racing. We wanted to give them center stage as the featured series the night before the 250." Said PASS president Tom Mayberry. Grandstand seating opens at 10:00 AM with Racing beginning at 4:00 PM and a $30 Adult Ticket.

Sunday August 29th is when the Super Late Models take center stage for the 48th Annual Oxford 250. Pits open at 7:00 AM and grandstands at 9:30 AM. Rotating practice rolls from 9:30 to 12:20 with the famous draw for heat race starting spots taking place in the infield at 12:40. Heat race action begins at 1:30.

ACT in the Spotlight on Saturday
of Oxford 250 Weekend
Tight Points Battle, Double-Duty Racers Among Storylines
Waterbury, VT -- The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) is coming to Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway this Saturday, August 28. Although the weather should finally cool off after recent scorching temperatures, the action on the track will remain red-hot with a stout field and eye-grabbing storylines.

The ACT Late Model Tour is part of the "Night Before the Oxford 250" program, which can be seen at Oxford Plains Speedway or live on Speed51.TV. Sunday is about the $25,000-to-win Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model showdown, but Saturday is for the Late Models. Several drivers such as ACT point leader D.J. Shaw, Ben Rowe, Mike Hopkins, and Derek Gluchacki are expected to run both shows, adding to the weekend's intrigue. They'll spend Saturday morning practicing their Super Late Models, then immediately turn their attention to getting the ACT car ready for 125 laps of green-flag racing.

These double-duty drivers are ones to watch beyond the challenge of trying to run 375 laps of feature action plus qualifying. All are stout Oxford racers who should be factors on the 3/8-mile oval. Hopkins went wire-to-wire in the July 11 race at Oxford to take his first career ACT win. The reigning PASS National Champion became the first driver since Jonathan Bouvrette at Thompson Speedway in 2019 to lead every lap of an ACT event.

Rowe and Shaw both are multi-time winners at Oxford in PASS competition with Rowe also owning two ACT victories at the track. Gluchacki finished second to Hopkins in the July event, which was his first ACT podium finish.

Furthermore, all three are part of the battle for the ACT championship. Another strong run Saturday would increase their chances of taking home the lion's share of more than $50,000 in point fund money and contingency awards.

Center Conway, NH's Shaw leads the standings by a single point over New Salem, MA's Tom Carey III. Turner, ME's Rowe is 13 points behind Shaw while North Dartmouth, MA's Gluchacki sits 51 points back. Five point-counting events remain on the schedule, meaning that it is "hustle time" for the top four.

A win by Rowe or Gluchacki would tie a long-standing ACT record. The Tour is sitting on seven different winners in the first seven events, which is one away from the all-time mark. In 2007 and 2014, ACT witnessed eight different winners in a row to start the year.

There are plenty of other candidates that could also match the record. Former Oxford Plains Speedway winner Bobby Therrien of Hinesburg, VT has filed an entry. So has part-time competitor Robby Gordon Douglas, who will travel all the way from Charlotte, NC.

Graniteville, VT's Stephen Donahue; Groveton, NH's Shawn Swallow; Derry, NH's Erick Sands; and Franklin, NH's Matt Anderson are full-time ACT racers who might keep the streak alive. So could part-timers like Dylan Payea, Trent Goodrow, Peyton Lanphear, and Reilly Lanphear. The Oxford events always draw a strong field with racers coming out of the woodwork to run on the legendary oval. That means a big pool of possible winners as well as potential big swings in the points chase.

The "Night Before the Oxford 250" program includes the Modified Racing Series, PASS MODS, Street Stock Triple Crown, Northeast Classic Lites, and Wicked Good Vintage Racing Association. Admission is $30 for adults and $15 for kids ages 6-12. A live pay-per-view of the Oxford Plains 125 will be available on Speed51.TV. 3 Day & Single Day Live Streaming Passes HERE

250 Entries Balloon to 68
Bubba Pollard Enters for the Fourth Time
OXFORD 250 ENTRY LIST - 8/29/21
Oxford, ME -- Entry number fifty-nine for the 2021 Oxford 250 was none other than 2018 champion Bubba Pollard #26. The Senoia, Georgia driver is among the many that fill a star-studded field that promises to make the 48th annual Oxford 250 as one of the best in a number of years. After a 2020 race that was only seen by a couple of hundred people in the stands, fans, sponsors, and racers alike are eagerly awaiting this year's edition of the storied race for the 68 drivers that have entered.

"We are looking forward to seeing a highly competitive 250 this year," said Pro All Stars Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry. "The 2021 season has been filled with some great competition, and we expect that to carry right into one of our biggest events of the year on August 29th."

Calvin Rose Jr. and Tim Brackett were officially the first two entries of this year's race. Rose, out of Turner Maine, and Brackett from Buckfield are both weekly competitors at the famed 3/8 mile oval. Both drivers have been a part of multiple 250s throughout their career and hope to be one a short list of regular Saturday night drivers to etch their name on the 250 trophy.

Two time race winner (2003 & 2004) Ben Rowe and Northeast Legend and three time 250 winner (1984, 1997, & 2005) Mike Rowe highlight a star studded field. Both Turner, Maine drivers hope to put their name in the record books one more time.

Travis Benjamin has three 250 titles to his credit (2013, 2014,& 2019) and hopes for a fourth, while 2020 winner Johnny Clark hopes to become the sixth driver in 250 history to go back to back.

"It's a real pleasure to see so many top-notch drivers committing to be a part of one of the biggest weekends on the Eastern Seaboard," said Mayberry, "The 250 consistently stages some of the best racing of the year, and by the looks of our entry list, this year will be no exception."

The impressive list reads like a who's who of Super Late Model racing in the Northeast, including drivers with long lists of accomplishments that have not yet won an Oxford 250. Among the leaders in that category is nine-time track champion Jeff Taylor who led a significant portion of the 2020 edition before a pit miscue relegated him to second. Cassius Clark and DJ Shaw would also like add "250 Champion" to their already impressive resumes.

2017 250 winner, 2019 OPS track champion and multi-time PASS winner Curtis Gerry, and 2020 OPS track champion Dave Farrington Jr. headline the contingent of local favorites. Alan Wilson and Dennis Spencer Jr. have both won weekly races and run well in longer PASS races. Back-to-back winner (2009 & 2010) Eddie MacDonald still seeks his first 250 win in a SLM and multi-time PASS Champion DJ Shaw's name is still missing from the 250 winners list as is recent PASS winner Joey Doiron.

Local young hot shoes like Austin Teras, Kyle DeSouza and Brandon Barker promise to make the veterans earn their way, while the Canadian contingent will be represented by Cole Butcher, who has shown a tremendous amount of speed in several races in recent history.

Among other entries are the likes of Tracy Gordon, Jeff White, Mike Hopkins, Derek Griffith, Kate Re, and Garrett Hall, whom have all shown the ability to win races at Oxford Plains. Also in the fray will be Ben Ashline, Trevor Sanborn, Ryan Robbins, Shawn Martin, and Gary Drew.

Will 2021 usher in a surprise winner or will we see a repeat performance by a past champion? We will all find out Sunday August 29th.

With a list of 68 and rising Super Late Model drivers of the highest caliber in the United States, the 48th annual Oxford 250 promises to be one for the history books!

Lap Leader Money Adds a
Unique Twist to the 250
We still have 250 laps available to sponsor. Your
lap will be posted on the website. Give Mary a call
between 9 AM and 7 PM at 207-693-6497.
Back in 1981, Oxford Plains Speedway Patriarch Bob Bahre was looking for a way to add a twist to the pit strategy of the 250 lap race. While there had always been a couple of different strategies, Bahre wanted to make the leader think twice before ducking onto pit road around the customary mid-point of the contest for tires and fuel. What was born from that brainstorm was a plan to pay the leader of each lap $50 and thus perhaps give them a reason to extend the pit stop to the later stages of the race. In 1984, that program grew to the current $100 per lap and has been a staple of the 250 ever since.

Over the years, many a local racer has managed to find their way to the front and the allure of the guaranteed pay day. In 1987 Billy Clark led a number of laps before pitting with 37 laps left for fuel and tires handing the win to Jamie Aube. He never made his way back to the front, ultimately finishing sixth.

In 1990 and 1991, drivers Chuck Bown and Ricky Craven both led well over 100 laps in route to dominating wins that ended up paying each driver over $50,000. Ralph Nason triumphed 3 years running in the prestigious event and on each occasion led between 75 and 150 laps, enough to make him the all-time leader in laps led over the 47 year history of the 250.

"The Lap leader money always seems to provide an extra twist to just about every 250," said PASS president Tom Mayberry. "Sometimes the extra money causes drivers to stay out too long and costs them a chance at winning the race. But sometimes it ends up being a very good pay day for someone who may need an infusion at that time of the year. We really like the added strategy that lap money adds to the 250."

In years past, laps not sold were covered by the Speedway. In 2020, Oxford Plains Speedway was forced to adjust the way these laps were paid. The total amount of lap money is divided by 250 laps and paid out equally across the board. Fans, businesses, and teams rallied to sell out all but a handful of laps so that the lap leader program continued to exist at nearly full payout.

"We were overwhelmed at the amount of support we received for the lap leader program in 2020," said Mayberry. "We hope we can replicate that again in 2021 and continue this long standing tradition. Laps are a great way to advertise your business, in memory of someone, or to celebrate an occasion (birthday etc) and the drivers really appreciate that extra lap leader money."

There are still plenty of spots available for the 250 lap leader program. If you want to sponsor a lap you may contact Mary between 9am and 7pm at 207-693-6497.  2021 OXFORD 250 LAP BOARD
