Maine Driver Stays White Hot Entering Oxford 250

Dave Farrington, Jr. is heating up at just the right time.  In addition to the three straight weekly Super Late Model race wins at Oxford Plains Speedway, the Jay, ME driver can now add a Pro All Stars Series race win to his impressive resume.

 

Farrington was the dominant car late in Sunday afternoon’s Oxford 250 tune-up race, taking the lead for the final time on lap 109 of the 150-lap contest.  From there, he pulled away from Johnny Clark and Derek Griffith, scoring his first ever PASS Super Late Model victory just two weeks before the 47th Annual Oxford 250 on August 28-30.

 

REPLAY: PASS 150 at Oxford Plains

 

“That’s four in a row,” Farrington said in Victory Lane.  “Three weekly series wins in a row and we finally accomplished our first PASS tour win ever.  Obviously we have the car maintained, well-balanced, and a little Lady Luck never hurts every once in a while.

 

“What a time to be rolling, coming into the 250, that’s for sure.  We are something excited for that.”

 

Farrington is definitely enjoying his winning streak, but with the 250 just two weeks away, he is leaning towards keeping his horses in the stable over the next two weeks before the big race.

 

“I think after two in a row I was told I should put this home and cover it up,” Farrington said with a laugh.  “I think this will stay home next weekend, lock the doors, cover it up.  I think we’re in pretty good shape to take a week off and enjoy ourselves.”

 

Perennial contender Johnny Clark charged his way up from a 12th-place starting spot to finish second, as he continues the hunt for his elusive first Oxford 250 title.  Clark feels strong about his chances this year.

 

“The car hasn’t been this good at Oxford since the 250 last year, so it seems like the timing is right for us," Clark stated.  "We’ve been struggling here, the last race here we went three laps down.  We didn’t bring anything back the same, except for the chassis of course, and it’s a lot better car.  Just need a little more and maybe we can run with some of those distance cars.”

 

Hudson, NH driver Derek Griffith brought home a solid third-place finish, at a track that admittedly hasn't been his best.  Griffith worked his way from outside the top 10, leading a handful of laps before Farrington took over the point.

 

“We were just a little too free all day,” Griffith said after the race.  “It fired off really good, I picked up all my positions basically on restarts.  The old girl did really good today, not exactly my best track so a top three is pretty good with the 250 just around the corner.”

 

Austin Terras was the race’s biggest mover, gaining 20 positions on the track to finish fourth, and was followed to the line by Joey Doiron.  D.J. Shaw, Alan Wilson, Ben Ashline, Craig Weinstein, and Travis Benjamin rounded out the top 10.

 

There is just one more race for the PASS Super Late Model teams to get their cars in order – the PASS Open on Saturday, August 22 at Oxford Plains Speedway.  The teams and drivers will then roll right into the 47th Annual Oxford 250, taking place August 28-30, 2020.
