Oxford Plains Speedway seats approximately 14,000 people and on August 30 nearly all of those seats are expected to be filled when the green flag is waved for the 42nd Annual Oxford 250. There’s no better time than now to purchase tickets to experience the richest single day short track racing event in North America.
Recently, track officials announced that Oxford 250 tickets are no longer being held for prior ticket holders, meaning that all non-purchased seats are now available to the general public. Fans can purchase reserved tickets in the top-five rows for $50 to get the best view of the 250-lap main event, as well as the crucial qualifying heats, consolation races and last chance race.
Currently, 51 entries have been received by the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) office and that number is expected to grow each day as we get closer to August 30. Pro All Stars Series owner Tom Mayberry told Speed51.com powered by JEGS on Thursday that he believes there will be 75, if not 80, cars attempting to qualify for the $25,000-to-win race.
The current entry list is composed of Super Late Model stars from the Northeast, Southeast and Canada, and drivers from each region will be hoping to house the coveted trophy.
Two-time defending race winner Travis Benjamin, defending PASS North champion DJ Shaw, defending ACT champion Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. and current PASS North points leader Mike Rowe will lead the list of drivers hoping to keep the big check in the Northeast.
Wednesday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series winner Christopher Bell, 16-year-old Spencer Davis, as well as PASS South contenders Tate Fogleman and Jody Measmer will represent the drivers looking to bring the $25,000-plus pay check to the southern part of the United States.
Pro All Stars Series regulars Raphael Lessard and Eric St. Gelais, as well as Maritime Pro Stock Tour competitor Cole Butcher will be among the drivers hoping to take an Oxford 250 trophy through border patrol and into their respective provinces.
Reserved tickets for the Oxford 250 can be purchased now by calling the track office at 207-539-8865 during regular hours. The office is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
