They call it the biggest one-day Super Late Model race in the country, and for the second time in the history of the event, the Oxford 250 will be broadcast live on Speed51.com. On Wednesday, Speed51.com and Pro All Stars Series officials announced that the 44th Annual Scott’s Recreation Oxford 250 presented by Fastway Trailers at Oxford Plains Speedway (ME) will be available to watch online via a pay-per-view broadcast.
Fans can purchase their single-day video ticket for Sunday, August 27 now for $29.99.
“The Oxford 250 is widely considered as the richest single-day short track racing event in North America,” said Speed51.com Editor Brandon Paul. “The excitement that unfolds on Oxford 250 Sunday throughout qualifying and leading into the race is hard to match anywhere in the country. We’re excited to be able to bring the excitement of the event to fans who are unable to make it to Maine during the last weekend of August.”
Part of what makes the Oxford 250 so special is the heat race format used for qualifying. Some even say that qualifying is worth the price of admission. In this case, it will be worth the price of a video ticket as well, because all three rounds of qualifying (heats, consis and last chance race) will be broadcast live on 51 TV.
Currently, 55 drivers are on the entry list for the 44th Annual Oxford 250 with close to 70 Super Late Models expected to attempt qualifying for the race on August 27. The entry list is loaded with talent from the Northeast and beyond.
Current PASS North points leader and two-time Oxford 250 winner Travis Benjamin heads up the list of former event winners who have filed their entries for the race. Other former winners entered include Glen Luce, Ben Rowe, Mike Rowe, Wayne Helliwell, Scott Robbins and Joey Polewarczyk.
The southern part of the country is expected to be represented by drivers such as Kodie Conner, Jay Fogleman and Spencer Davis. Northwest racing legend Garrett Evans is also entered and will be making the cross-country trip to Maine for the second straight year.
Speed51.com’s live broadcast of the Oxford 250 will begin with qualifying heats at approximately 1:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, August 27. All rounds of Super Late Model qualifying leading into the 250-lap main event will be broadcast live.
