WATCH LIVE: Championship Night at Oxford Plains
While Oxford Plains race fans will pack the stands this weekend, OPS Championship Night will be live on Speed51.TV for all the world to see.
As usual, the Spencer Paving Group Super Late Models that race weekly during the year on Saturday nights will take center stage, with their final 50-lap feature of the season. Dave Farrington Jr. is looking for his second straight title, but will have to deal with Kyle DeSouza and Curtis Gerry trying to work a last race miracle.
The rest of the Saturday Oxford Championship Series will also be in action, with a 30-lap Street Stock feature, which will also finish off the division’s triple crown for 2021. The Bandits will be on hand for a 20-lap feature, with the Rookies going for 15 laps, as well as the 8-Cylinder Figure 8’s which will conclude the evening.
But, we’re just halfway there as the Oxford Acceleration Series which normally competes on Friday nights will crash the party to crown the champions of their six divisions. The Rebels, Cruisers, Outlaws, and Trucks will all go for 20 laps each. The Ladies for 15 laps, as well as the 4-Cylinder Figure 8’s who will be the penultimate race of the night following the Super Late Models.
Speed51.TV will go live just prior to the 4pm post time, with heat races for the nine oval divisions starting things off. Then following a short intermission it will be straight into the 11 feature races. The order being: Bandits, Rebels, Outlaws, Cruisers, Street Stocks, Rookies, Ladies, Trucks, Super Late Models, 4-Cyl Figure 8’s, and 8-Cyl Figure 8’s.
Those heading to the track can head into the grandstands starting at 1:15pm ET at the start of practice. Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and military members, $5 kids aged 6-12, and free for 5 & under. Family four-packs (2 adults, 2 juniors) are just $30. Skybox seats will also be available, $28 for adults and $6 for kids 12 and under.
Viewers watching on Speed51.TV can see all the action with a Speed51 yearly or monthly subscription.
Following this Saturday, Oxford Plains Speedway will open only once more in 2021, for a Saturday-Sunday doubleheader. The Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models and Modifieds will race along with the Street Stocks and ACT Flying Tigers on Saturday, October 16; while the season ends with the final Motor Mayhem event on Sunday, October 17.
