Naples, ME – An important weekend of racing will culminate over the next few days for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models and local racers at Oxford Plains Speedway. Following a huge Saturday night of fireworks, local Super Late Model action, and 11 divisions of racing at Oxford Plains Speedway, an epic opportunity looms for PASS racers on Sunday at Oxford.
The PASS Open 100 will feature non-PASS winners competing for a chance to race their way in to the 46th Annual Oxford 250. The top three drivers who have not won a PASS event in the last five years will be locked into one of short track racing's biggest events coming up in August. But, several winning PASS drivers have expressed interest in competing in Sunday's non-points paying 100-lapper so PASS officials will allow them to race, and if one of them finishes in the top three, they will also get a guaranteed starting spot in the 250.
Everything actually begins on Saturday with Applebee's night at the races featuring all 11 of Oxford Plains Speedway's regular divisions. Plus, Maine's largest fireworks display and a strong field of Super Late Models. Then, on late Sunday afternoon, The Open 100 will feature PASS non-winners racing for a chance to gain spots in the Oxford 250. The top three non-winners in Sunday’s “Open” will get locked into the 46th Annual Oxford 250, regardless of their overall finish. In 2016, Wayne Helliwell, Jr. parlayed a win in the “Open” to a guaranteed starting spot in the 250, before going on to take over $25,000 for winning the biggest race of his career. Defending Oxford Plains Speedway champion, Gabe Brown, is entered along with Ray Christian, III, Dave Farrington, Jr. and more as they compete for their shot at making the biggest Super Late Model race of the year.
All the action gets under way this weekend at Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday with local features beginning at 6 PM featuring the Super Late Models, Street Stocks, Bandits, Figure 8’s, Rookies, Outlaws, Rebels, Trucks, Ladies, Cruisers, 4-Cylinder Figure 8's, plus Maine's biggest fireworks show. On Sunday, racing begins at 6 PM for the PASS North Super Late Models Open 100, Honey Badger Street Stock Series, and the Bandit Triple Crown Series.
