I don’t know. I got there too late to talk to him after the race.

I have them now and will be typing them out. There were some scoring questions that needed to be figured out first. 
9:32
Comment From Lynn R. from S.C. 

how long before results 

9:31
They are spending a lot of time in the areas of the clutches and transmissions. 
9:31
Comment From Speed racer 

What kind of items are they looking at in the tech dept. tonight? 

9:31
Comment From kkneeland 

I almost felt a little bad for Keselowski Saturday night in the Nationwide… Today, not so much. What a JERK! 

9:26

Eddie MacDonald wins his second TD Bank 250. (51 Sports Photo)
8:59
Nick Sweet also had a tough final lap as he broke his axle in half on the final circuit of the TD Bank 250. So if he ends up losing another spot after the race it would just add insult to injury. 
8:57
With the issue it means that results are going to be much later then expected. We thank you for sticking with us here on Speed51.com. We hope to have then as soon a possible, even if they are unofficial. 
8:55
We have just gotten word that there is a scoring disagreement over the fifth-place finisher. Right now it looks as if they are unsure if Brad Leighton was on the lead lap. If he was then it could results in a fifth-place finish. Currently Nick Sweet is scored as the fifth-place car. Both machines have been called to tech as they sort out the situation in the tower. 
8:44
$7,500 for Corey Morgan. 
8:43
Comment From Guest 

how much did corey get? 

8:41
Brian Hoar had a nice payday for second $13,800, not bad for a guy who only made his first 250 start a year ago. Both races have ended in top five runs. 
8:41
Comment From Bill ryan 

Wow guess I gotta write Eddie anther big check!!! 

8:31
Eddie MacDonald will take home $29,800 tonight to go along with his $35,300 from last year. Three years ago he $15,000 which makes his three year total just over 80 grand. We think Eddie Mac Likes OPS. 
8:27
Unofficially we think that Brad Leighton was sixth. His flat tire cost him $25,000. However if he did get sixth then he leaves with a $22,600 payday (we think) thanks to lap money. That is one of the biggest purses for a non-winner in quite some time. 
8:23
Eddie MacDonald becomes only the fourth driver to win back-to-back TD Bank 250’s. Geoff Bodine, Ralph Nason and Ben Rowe have all done it in the past. Nason went on to win three in a row and Eddie MacDonald will have a chance to chase that in 2011. 
8:13
Corey Morgan didn’t say much in his interview other than to thank his crew and sponsors….so we’ll have to pull more out of him and present it to you in our 250 Leftovers later this week on Speed51.com
8:11
Comment From Guest 

Thanks for the coverage Mike. 

8:11
“This was bittersweet. We’re happy to finish second in the Oxford 250 but there were too many cars in between us to catch Eddie at the end. Hat’s off to those guys, they did a great job.” – Brian Hoar.

Since it is doubtful that I will get it before going out to get interviews, it might be a little while to be honest with you.

Great job covering the 250…wasn’t so bad not being there afterall…thanks to you guys…keep up the good work! 

8:08
“This is just awesome. These guys work so hard and we were chasing the track because it was so different this year. I feel sorry for Brad Leighton.” – Eddie MacDonald.

captain morgan,, great run for the little guys… 

8:05
Beyond the top five, we aren’t even going to speculate on the finishers until we see a scoring sheet. 
8:05
Brent Dragon is unofficially fourth with Nick Sweet being credited with fifth. 
8:05
Corey Morgan is scored as the third place finisher. 
8:04

8:04
Comment From Menwah 

congrats Eddie Mac!! 

8:04
$29,800 is MacDonald’s payday. 
8:04
Brian Hoar finished second. 
8:04
Nick Sweet spun on the final lap – possibly due to a tire or wheel issue. 
8:04
Eddie MacDonald has won his second Oxford 250. 
8:03
Final lap.

There are now two laps to go.

8:03
When we get them. 
8:03
Comment From Guest 

are you going to post the final results on here 

8:03
Eddie MacDonald is under no pressure. 
8:03
There are four laps to go. 
8:02
Dave Pembroke is the next lapped car on the track, which should put him in the top ten. 
8:02
Don Wentworth is right behind Laperle. 
8:02
The first car one lap down is Patrick Laperle. 
8:02
There are now seven laps to go. 
8:02
Jeff Taylor has just pulled off the track. 
8:01
Brad Leighton would be sixth if he is scored as on the lead lap and that is in question right now. 
8:01
Currently, Eddie MacDonald leads Corey Morgan, Brian Hoar, Brent Dragon and Nick Sweet. 
8:00
Brian Hoar is now up to third. 
8:00
Without a caution or trouble, it is unlikely for anyone to catch Eddie MacDonald. 
8:00
We are now at lap 236 of 250. 
7:59
Yes. 
7:59

7:58
There are now 20 laps to go. 
7:57
Brent Dragon is now beside Corey Morgan for second place. 
7:57
A full straightaway. 
7:57
Comment From Guest 

how far ahead is the leader from second place? 

7:57
Comment From DwnTwn 

Great Coverage Guys! 

7:57
The lapped cars of Patrick Laperle, Don Wentworth, dave Pembroke and Ricky Rolfe are between leader Eddie MacDonald and second place Corey Morgan. 
7:56
We are now at lap 222 of 250. 
7:56
Corey Morgan is now up to second place. 
7:55
The track announcers are calling Leighton on the lead lap, but he is not on either scoreboard in the top five. 
7:55
Brian Hoar and Brad Leighton are going three-wide with lapped traffic to supposedly battle for the fourth position. 
7:54
There is now some dispute whether or not Brad Leighton is on the lead lap. There was no penalty announced for him drawing a caution and no black flag, but he is not on the scoreboard despite track position that would put him in the top five. 
7:53
Eddie MacDonald has a half straightaway on second place Brent Dragon. There are a slew of lapped cars between them. 
7:52
We are now at lap 210. 
7:51
We might. Stay tuned. 
7:51
Comment From Jesse 

Hey Speed51 You Should Come Up To Speedway 660 This Year For The Peterbilt 250 And Cover It For The Fans. Its The 10th Anniversary And Is Very Special. 

7:51
We are now at an indicated lap 205. 
7:51
Patrick Laperle is now looking under Eddie MacDonald to unlap himself. 
7:51
Patrick Laperle moved into the second position on the racetrack after that restart. he is still one lap down though. 
7:50
Allard is off the lead lap and outside the top ten. 
7:50
Comment From Racing 

What’s about Karl Allard?? 

7:50
It does not appear that there is any damage to Leighton’s #55NH Late Model. 
7:50
Comment From Guest 

Leighton have any damage that caused the flat? 

7:49
No. 
7:49
Comment From shep 

No penalty for the intentional caution? 

7:49
Brian Hoar has pitted under caution. 
7:49
Ricky Rolfe and Dave Pembroke unofficially round out the top ten. 
7:48
Patrick Laperle is unofficially eighth and one lap down. 
7:48
Don Wentworth is one lap down and unofficially in the seventh position. 
7:48
Brad Leighton is the final car on the lead lap in the sixth position. 
7:48
Nick Sweet is now fifth. 
7:48
Brian Hoar is fourth. 
7:47
Corey Morgan is third. 
7:47
Eddie MacDonald now leads over Brent Dragon with two lapped cars in between the two leaders. 
7:46
We are now at lap 203. 
7:46
Brad Leighton just cut doughnuts in turn two. That brought out the caution. Leighton then threw the car into gear and stayed on the lead lap. 
7:46
Eddie MacDonald has now inherited the lead. 
7:45
Leighton appears to have a flat tire. 
7:45
Brad Leighton has slowed! 
7:45
Comment From Guest 

Eddie is ready to pounce 

7:45
Eddie MacDonald has cleared lapped traffic and is now directly behind Brad Leighton. 
7:45
Nick Sweet is now back on the lead lap. 
7:44
Nick Sweet and Brad Leighton are now fighting hard with each other. Leighton leads while Sweet is trying to get back on the lead lap. 
7:44
Quinney Welch still appears to be done for the day. If he does get back into the race, I will let you know. 
7:44
Comment From guest 

is welch back out? 

7:43
Lapped cars are restarting among the leaders. 
7:43
Comment From Robert 

How are they restarting them, with lap cars in between the cars on lead lap ? 

7:43
Brad Leighton currently leads with the lapped cars of Nick Sweet and Don Wentworth right behind him. Eddie MacDonald runs second behind them. The lapped cars of Patrick Laperle and Travis Adams are next on the track. Then it’s the lead lap car of Brent Dragon. 
7:41
Now we at at lap 188 according to the scoreboards. That has not been completely accurate tonight though. 
7:41
Brad Leighton leads again on the restart. 
7:39
Jeff Taylor has stalled his car while pitting. 
7:39
We are at lap 189 currently. 
7:38
Just outside the top five and off the lead lap, unofficially, are Don Wentworth, Nick Sweet and Patrick Laperle. 
7:37
Jeff White’s car is heavily damaged, but his team is thrashing to try and get it back into the race. 
7:37
Currently Brad Leighton leads Eddie MacDonald, Brent Dragon, Corey Morgan and Brian Hoar. Those are the only cars on the lead lap. 
7:36
$100 for every lap led. 
7:36
Comment From Flip 

How much in lap money so far for Brad? 

7:35
Joey Pole is back on the track. 
7:35
Randy Potter did not even enter the race this year. 
7:35
Comment From Menwah 

Randy Potter in the big show? 

7:35
Jeff White is out of the car and okay. 
7:35
Karl Allard is not on the lead lap and we do not have access to timing and scoring or a full field rundown. 
7:34
Comment From ghislain

7:34
Jeff White has hit the backstretch wall. The caution is out at lap 184. 
7:33
He is nowhere near the top ten. 
7:33
Comment From Jesse 

Anybody Know Where Keselowski Is? 

7:32
250 green flag laps. 
7:32
Comment From Guest 

Is the 250 for 250 laps or miles? 

7:31
Brad Leighton is now pulling away from the lapped cars of Patrick Laperle, Nick Sweet and Don Wentworth again. 
7:31
Quinney Welch’s car has finally gone off the jack, but instead of heading back on the track, it has been pushed to the grassy area of the infield. 
7:30
Eddie MacDonald runs in second place. 
7:30
Brad Leighton has just re-lapped Patrick Laperle. 
7:29
Patrick Laperle has just passed Brad Leighton to get back on the tail of the lead lap. 
7:29
We are now at lap 168. 
7:29
Leighton has a half straightaway lead. 
7:29
Comment From Robert 

How big of a lead (1/4 track or more ?) does Leighton have ? 

7:29
Not today. 
7:29
Comment From jr 

is mike rowe in the race? 

7:28

Comment From Guest 

who started the race where can i find names 

7:27
The hood is back up on the #97 car of Joey Pole. 
7:27
Joey Pole is back in the pits under green. 
7:27
Nick Sweet is also closing up on the leader in an effort to unlap himself. 
7:26
Quinney Welch has been in the pits for quite some time. His team isn’t working very quickly. For now, I would consider him to be out of the race. 
7:26
Comment From adam 

welch back on track? 

7:26
Comment From guest 

is welch still in the pits? 

7:25
Don Wentworth and Patrick Laperle are now right behind Brad Leighton and trying hard to get back on the lead lap. 
7:25
All of this racing with lapped cars is allowing Brad Leighton to extend his lead. 
7:24
Patrick Laperle is getting aggressive in a bid to make up his lap as well. 
7:24
Don Wentworth is going three wide with Eddie MacDonald and Brian Hoar to get to the leader and make up his lap. 
7:24
Brian Hoar runs second. 
7:24
We are now at lap 149. 
7:24
Brad Leighton leads again on the restart. 
7:23
The track has announced that several lapped cars passed Brian Hoar and Eddie MacDonald under yellow and that led to some problems resetting the field. 
7:23
It appears that the first cars one lap down will be Don Wentworth, Travis Adams, Patrick Laperle and Nick Sweet. 
7:22

Will the caution save Welch or was he already down? 

7:21
Comment From Todd Littleton NH 

what happ to the 78 

7:21
Joey Pole has pitted under caution and the hood is up on his car. 
7:20
Comment From TheGhostofButchLindley 

They count yellows but they don’t count toward the 250. Just makes it confusion so they can fix the scoring how they want it! 

7:20
White was on the board in the top five and now his number has disappeared. After announcing him as being on the lead lap, he is now not being announced there. 
7:20
There is some question as to whether Jeff White is on the lead lap or not. 
7:19
Brad Leighton, Brian Hoar, Eddie MacDonald, Brent Dragon and now Corey Morgan are the only cars listed on the lead lap. 
7:19
Corey Morgan is now able to come around to the tail end of the field since he just made up his lap. 
7:18
Dave Pembroke and Eric Williams have tangled in turn one to bring out a caution on lap 147. 
7:18
Comment From rr 

you dont lose laps on caution 

7:18
Comment From Guest 

Shane Green not on lead lap because caution laps do not count. 

7:18
Corey Morgan has just made up his lap. 
7:18
We are at lap 145. 
7:18
Quinney Welch is pitting under green. 
7:17
Brad Leighton has taken the lead on the restart. 
7:17
Comment From Todd Littleton NH 

go quinney 

7:17
Comment From Matt 

This sounds like a rather underwhelming 250. 6 cars on the lead lap? Good grief. I’m glad I sat this one out in favor of the PASS 150 last night. 

7:17

7:14

So lap cars and lead lap cars can pit at same time? And u r doing a great job! 

7:13
Brent Dragon is in sixth and by our count is the final driver on the lead lap. 
7:13
Quinney Welch is now fifth. 
7:13
We have Eddie MacDonald as your new fourth-place runner. 
7:13
Jeff White should be in third after the pit stops. 
7:12
Brad Leighton is out second. 
7:12
Brian Hoar has only taken on two tires and now leads. 
7:12
No, he is at least two laps down. 
7:12
Comment From Guest 

Is Ryan Vanasse on the lead lap? 

7:11
It would be nice to see your driver, former 250 winner Gary Drew, out here in a Gutter’s Meat Market machine.

Pembroke is down a lap. 
7:10
Comment From Dan 

Is Pembroke fading? 

7:10
No, the track is announcing that Jeff White is on the lead lap. The white #50 is White’s car while the black one belongs to Jay Laquerre. 
7:10
Comment From Mark 

isnt that #50 laquerre on the lead lap, not white 

7:09
No, he spun. Before that, it might have been brake smoke.

7:04
Comment From Jmo 

Why are these comments by use being moderated and approved?? 

7:04
Brad Leighton has been leading without any challenges, so there hasn’t been much point in talking about him lately. 
7:04
Comment From Terry 

who’s leading the race? 

7:03
Or maybe we are at lap 125. The two scoreboards aren’t agreeing with each other. 
7:03
We are at lap 129. 
7:03
Brian Hoar has passed Eddie MacDonald for second place. 
7:02
You are half right – Jay Laquerre is in the #50VT and Jeff White is in the #50ME. 
7:01
Comment From Mark 

#50 is jay laquerre 

7:01
Comment From Guest 

at this point, i guess being on the lead lap is a plus 🙂

Brad Keselowski has been lapped again. 
6:59
Travis Adams is now a lap down. 
6:59
He is still on the lead lap. 
6:59

brad must be really hooked up 

6:58
Ricky Rolfe is now a lap down. 
6:58
We are now at lap 107.

6:55
Comment From Jmo 

Its too bad this race isn’t still a Superlatemodel race, When it was a Superlatemodel race they never had car counts under 90 

6:55
They are allowed eight tires for the heat race and feature. 
6:55
Comment From Guest 

how many tires are they allowed this year? 

6:54
Ben Ashline has spun in turn four and has lost a lap. He kept going and the caution did not come out. 
6:54
We are at lap 94. 
6:54
Brad Leighton has a strong lead, so we haven’t been talking about him much. 
6:54
Comment From smitty 

who is leading 

6:54
TJ Brackett has been lapped again. We think he might be two laps down now. 
6:53
Comment From Guest 

pretty soon it will be easier to say who is on the lead lap at this rate! 

6:53
Jeff Taylor is now a lap down. 
6:53

6:52
Glen Luce and Karl Allard are now a lap down. 
6:51
I’m not good at estimating crowds, so I won’t give you a percentage but the crowd is very decent. The camping seems to be down for this year, but the stands filled in before racetime just like it has over the past few seasons. 
6:51
Comment From Guest 

Probably been said already, but I’m curious what the fan count looks like? What percent of the grandstand is full? 

6:50
Wayne Helliwell, Jr. is now pitting, but is several laps down with a flat right front tire. 
6:50
Wayne Helliwell, Jr. is limping around the track with a flat tire and can’t get down into the lower groove to pit. 
6:49
Comment From Guest 

Yeah no one announces quite like Kalle…he always got everyones name and numbers right and he kept up on the website..he even di d a story on the wednesday night races online…they do none of that now..very sad..things are going down hill quick, seems as though the only thing that Bill is worried about and focuses on is 250 speedweek! 

6:49
Helliwell kept pedaling and there will be no caution period. 
6:49
Wayne Helliwell, Jr has sailed off the track in turn one.

6:45

6:41
Comment From Guest 

hmm a race with tradition wow 

6:41
Comment From Lynn R. 

you have to earn your lap back, not just given it back. 

6:40
Eddie MacDonald is now chasing down Brad Leighton at lap 36. 
6:40
Eddie MacDonald passed those two lapped cars down low at the same time and came out of the three-wide sandwich with second place. 
6:40
The lapped cars of Brad Keselowski and Ben Rowe are battling hard right behind the leader. 
6:39
Brad Leighton extended his lead on the restart. 
6:39
The lights are off on the pace car and the restart will be any moment. 
6:38
The Oxford 250 and its format was in place long before there was ever a lucky dog award in any form of racing. 
6:38

6:29

Comment From zippy 

thought it started at 6? 

6:27
Comment From Guest 

what time does the green flag drop? Go shawn Martin 

6:26
Too many traffic appeared to have crashed the Internet server here at Oxford, but the problem is hopefully fixed now. You haven’t missed much. Billy Childs, Jr. slid off the track in turn three but there was no caution. He is still on the lead lap, but only barely. 
6:25
Brad Leighton is now into the lead. 
6:25
We’re back and Brian Hoar leads at lap 11.
6:24
The TD Bank 250 is underway and Brian Hoar leads the first lap. 
6:22
We are having some technical difficulties at OPS with the internet. Please be patient with us as we work out the problem. 
6:19
Teams have moved their pit carts to the infield for preparation of tonight’s 250 lap event. The TD Bank 250 will consist of 250 green flag laps. Under caution cars may enter the pits when the pits are opened. UNDER CAUTION, CARS IN THE PIT WILL NOT LOSE A LAP. Cars that enter the pit when it is closed, will go to the back of the field, behind all cars, including those that pitted after them. 
5:57
No matter who the winner is tonight we expect to have them on our Speed 51 Radio show on Tuesday night from 6 to 8pm on RaceTalkRadio.com. We’ll have the 250 winner and all kinds of information, news, and gust from the short track racing world.

It’s all most race time here at Oxford. Who’s going to win? Let us know who you think will take home the prize tonight at OPS. 
5:43
The TD Bank 250, or as some know it the Oxford 250, has had a rich tradition filled with some historic winners. Our own Elgin “Stat Boy” Traylor has a website he does on the side devoted to the history of short track racing. Check out the results of past TD Bank 250’s.http://www.shorttrackhistory.org/bn250a.html
5:43
Yvon Bedard is the only driver who has been to all four TD Bank 250’s without qualifying for any of them. If we gave out a hard luck award he could be the winner of it as he goes home once again empty handed.

Well, not so fast. Spencer and Brown have gotten provisionals and Keselowski got a promoter’s option but the lineup just released by the track shows that Earnhardt is not going to be in the show.

5:06
Comment From rob 

krash alotski does it again 

5:04
Dale Verrill slammed into Brad Keselowski to take the lead and crossed the finish line with his hand and middle finger flying out the window to win the race. Driving with one hand didn’t work out too well for Verrill though as he slid up high after crossing the finish line and spun through turn two. The crowd gave him a standing ovation for putting the Cup invader in his place. 
5:03
Derek Kneeland is back to fourth but running out of time. 
5:02
Brad Keselowski now leads over Dale Verrill. 
5:02
Derek Kneeland has dropped back through the field. 
5:02
On the restart, Brad Keselowski slammed into Derek Kneeland to upset both cars. Joey Laquerre took the lead. 
5:01
Comment From Sue 

Yup, Jim Linardy, #77MA has headed home, too much damage to his front end!!! Good Luck to Joey Pole and Wayne Helliwell, Jr. my second and third fav’s!!!!! Thanks so much for the updates!!! 

5:01
Derek Kneeland currently leads over Brad Keselowski, Dale Verrill, Joey Laquerre, Jamie Aube, Yvon Bedard, Ben Lynch and Nick Brown. 
4:59
There are only eight cars left on the track and five laps to go in the final Last Chance race. 
4:59
As stated many times before in today’s coverage, there is no radio coverage of the 250. We have talked about doing something on RaceTalkRadio.com but have not been able to secure the rights to the boradcast from the track. 
4:59
Comment From RaceFan06 

do you guys know if any radio stations are covering the race? 

4:58
JT Turlow just launched over the back of Matt White’s car on the backstretch. 
4:58
Another restart and another wreck. 
4:57
Nick Brown tried to line up in his original position for the restart, but he was sent to the rear. Brown showed his displeasure by attempting to light up his tires under caution on the frontstretch, but got into his rev limiter instead. 
4:56
Roger Brown has pulled off the track. 
4:55
Derek Kneeland had a strong lead, but the field will be reset on this restart. 
4:55
The caution is out. The scoreboard is still listing the race as being on lap 15. 
4:55
Nick Brown has wrecked in turn two. He might have been helped. 
4:54
We are at lap 15. 
4:54
Donald Theetge pulled right out in front of leader Derek Kneeland and almost caused a huge wreck. Kneeland still leads. 
4:54
Donald Theetge has spun by himself. 
4:53
Again, there is only so much one person can do but thanks for the suggestion. 
4:53
Comment From Guest 

i know, you guys need to do live video feed 

4:53
Brad Keselowski has moved up to second place. 
4:52
Derek Kneeland has maintained his lead on the restart. 
4:52
We will have photo galleries later this week on Speed51.com’s Facebook page. There were a few that I posted this morning as well, but there is only so much one person can do when there is non stop racing action to cover. 
4:52
Comment From Winslow, Me 

I wish there were pictures of the action! 

4:50
Ben Lynch has spun in turn three to bring out the caution on lap six. 
4:50
Comment From Guest 

Will Jeremy Whorff get a provisional? 

4:50
If Roger Brown wins this Last Chance race, Whorff will get a provisional. If Brown doesn’t win, Whorff will go home. 
4:49
Comment From Cindy 

Sue, the swaybar broke on the 77ma their on the way home 

4:49
Larry Gelinas did not start the final Last Chance race. 
4:49
Derek Kneeland has taken the lead at the start of the final Last Chance race over Nick Brown and Brad Keselowski. 
4:47
No, he is not out there so although we haven’t officially heard that he withdrew that appears to be the case.

4:38
Whorff’s penalty is going to be a stop and go for jumping the start.

I have seen tardiff racing on speed channel a few nights ago that kid can wheel a race car!! passing 3 wide on the outside at NHMS in a K&N car!! he would have been my pick for today if go green didnt take him out of the car to put earnhardt in!! bad move on there part! 

4:19
Comment From Alison 

I’d much see Alan Tardiff race than Jeffrey Earnhardt. 

4:18
We’d also like to see Dave Dion back. He’s been known to follow a few of these races online so Dave, if you are out there we would love to see you and your brothers build a crate-engined Ford Late Model for the 2011 250. 
4:17
Comment From Guest 

Rumor has it that he has been in the seat of a late model at Unity, and not doing so well. Like him or not, Ralph sure did put on a show at the 250 for many years though. I think Ryan ought to find Ralph a ride instead of these cup guys. He’d fill a few seats! 

4:17
Fairly minor. He should be back to at least start his Last Chance race.

Comment From Guest

4:12
Ben Lynch might have had a mechanical problem that led to his spin. We think that some other guys might just give up at this point. 
4:12
Comment From Guest 

Anyone look too damaged to run the lcq’s? 

4:11
250 green flag laps make up the Oxford 250. 
4:11
Comment From Roger 

how many laps??? 

4:11
The crowd has picked up nicely. It’s not as full as some years when big names from Cup were in the race, but it is certainly respectable. 
4:11
Comment From g stone 

how full are the stands 

4:09
There will still be three Last Chance races where only the winner will advance. 
4:09
Comment From Guest 

they done qualifing 

4:09
Comment From dan c 

Go Green racing is getting all kinds of free press with Earnhardt in the car, wouldn’t get that with Tardiff. 

4:09
The damage to his car looked minor, so the #77MA should be back for the last chance race. 
4:08
Comment From Guest 

So is Jim Linardy totally out of the race now??? #77, car really wrecked????? Just a concerned fan!!!! 

4:08
Gary Drew is not entered in today’s race. He currently runs on the PASS North Tour.

Allison has a point…Ryan wouldn’t put Ben in the show after Taylor had tried to qualify the car and failed to make it. 

4:07
Comment From Guest 

go green racing should have stuck with there origional driver, alan tardiff seems to be the only driver to produce the finishes for the team, earnhardt is a waste of a seat 

4:06
We have received conflicting information on that, but it is highly unlikely that Jamie Aube would be in line for the provisional after several previous winners more recent than him have not qualified. 
4:04
Comment From Alison 

Aube cannot get a provisional no matter how many efforts the “Team” has made….re Mike and Ben Rowe a few yrs ago.

Comment From Guest 

who provides track safety at Oxford Plains? 

4:03
Comment From Illiana Fan 

I agree, Keselowski probably added some butts in the seats today so his provisional is worth it. A waste to give one to Earnhardt when he is clearly so over matched this weekend 

4:02
Comment From Gary Babineau 

With Ricker making the show…The Oxford provisional should be with Scott Luce is he fails to make it. 

4:02
The provisional order would be Eddie MacDonald (who is already in), Roger Brown, Jeremy Whorff, Ben Rowe and Larry Gelinas. Also, Jamie Aube might be next in line dependent on the decision of the track.

3:48
During this break, we will remind you that there are 79 drivers here today. While we appreciate the questions about who your favor driver might be and we will try to answer them when we can, sending the same question two, three, four or more times will not increase your chances of it being answered.

3:46

3:38
Quinney Welch, Tommy Ricker and Patrick Laperle currently hold down transfer spots. 
3:37
Quinney Welch is now leading the second consi race. 
3:37
Yes, but the team has made every attempt to qualify. So that would be a decision that track officials would need to make. 
3:36
Comment From guest 

aube wouldnt be eligible for a prov because he didnt make every attempt to qualify and in order to be eligible for the prov, the driver has to make every effort (start every heat, consi, lc, that he is in) 

3:35
Comment From BG 

is there a telivision broadcast or radio station to listen to the race? 

3:35
There are several drivers who have won this race more recently than Aube, which is why I wrote that he “might” be eligible for the provisional. 
3:35
Comment From ian 

rowe is more recent then Aube 

3:34
Quinney Welch is now at the front of the pack and being scored as the leader.

3:33
Tommy Ricker leads on the restart. 
3:32
Dustin Delaney has just been replaced in the #39 by Jamie Aube according to track officials. Since Aube is a former winner of the race, he might be eligible for a provisional. 
3:32
No, there is no broadcast of this race on radio or television. 
3:31
Comment From Guest 

Jeffrey Earnhardt is as slow as his uncle dale jr. too bad oxford will probably end up wasting a provisional on him when a hard working local team should deserve a provisional!

3:23
We are at lap 12 of the first consi race.

3:08
Comment From Ricky 

Is Mark Lamberton in attendance in the Richard Green Trucking number 16NY? If so, he’s the lone New York driver there! Go Mark! 

3:07
There is some dispute as to whether Nick Reno or Pete Potvin is driving the #41 car today. 
3:07
There have been some changes in the public relations department here for 2010 at Oxford Plains Speedway, so the information flow is a little bit reduced from what it has been in previous years. We apologize for the problems.

The first heat race is rolling out onto the track.

We will try to answer as many questions as possible today, but please be patient. If we see the same question from the same person posted a half dozen times within five minutes though, we are probably not going to answer that question though.

Comment From j forbes 

watched Dustin Delaney start his racing career at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Vermont. Hope he will come back there and race on the new pavement.

Comment From Hughes Motorsports 

Good to know, I have a race car down here in the south I have to pay for! 

1:39
Comment From Racing Electronics 

Thanks for all the updates Mr. Twist! Hope Sharpe is taking good care of you in Oxford. Good luck to all competitors!!! 

1:38
Thanks Kevin! There are plenty of RE Radios in use here today. 
1:38
Comment From Hughes Motorsports 

Great job Twist! I miss the days growing up in Scarborough, racing at the Ridge’ and seeing the 250 in person each year, thanks for the awesome coverage – as always…. 

1:38
Yes, we’ll have more about the Mike Rowe vs. Scott Chubbuck incident later this week in our PASS North Leftovers from Beech Ridge. 
1:37
Comment From Gary 

They parked him last night at the ridge for rough riding 🙂 

1:36
Brad Leighton, who will be driving the #55NH Late Model today, won at New Smyrna in a PASS South race back in January. Dustin Delaney and Patrick Laperle both ran Crate Late Models during February’s World Series of Short Track Asphalt Racing here. 
1:34
Comment From Voice of New Smyrna 

Greetings from New Smyrna Speedway… Will be watching your coverage all day… Keep up the great work… hope to see you guys down here in November! 

1:34
Comment From j forbes 

Remember coming to oxford 250 when Butch Lindley from down south raced. 

1:34
We have had a Mike Rowe sighting. The winningest driver in the history of Oxford Plains Speedway is here as a spectator today. 
1:32
Yes. 
1:32
Comment From Guest 

Is the past winners provisional given to the most recent winner? 

1:32
Well, following along here isn’t going to be nearly as awesome as watching the race firsthand, but we’ll try to keep you entertained. 
1:31
Comment From Lynn R. 

this is only the 2nd 250 I have missed since 1984 

1:31
Personally, I would have love to have been here to see that, but I couldn’t make it up here in time. 
1:30
Comment From Jim DuPont 

You missed a good MRS race last night. VERY competitive. Have fun today and stay cool! 

1:30
The five former 250 winners attempting to qualify today will be Eddie MacDonald, Roger Brown, Jeremie Whorff, Ben Rowe and Larry Gelinas. 
1:28
There could be anywhere between 40 and 43 cars starting today’s TD Bank 250. 39 will qualify through heats, consis and last chance races. The highest driver in the current Oxford Late Model points will also earn a starting spot. Then, a provisional for a previous 250 race winner will be available if needed. Additional starting positions will then be available at the promoter’s discretion. We would expect that Brad Keselowski and Jeffrey Earnhardt would be eligible for those spots. 
1:28
Comment From Corey Latham 

Great coverage today guys, I will make it to this race in the next two years, been promising myself too long. 

1:25
There will be six heat races today, three consi races and then three last chances races. 
1:24
The official car count for the 2010 TD Bank 250 according to track officials is 79. 
1:23
Not yet. I think we’ll get a better picture of that when everyone runs together in the heat races. In practice, most everyone stayed single file. 
1:23
Comment From Lynn R. 

Has anyone said which groove is better today 

1:18
Six track officials are all together with notebooks in hand figuring out the heat race lineups. 
1:13
The heat races are set to roll off at 2pm ET. 
1:13
Comment From Guest 

Sprint Cup racing is a joke…you wanna see some real racing…head to your local track on a Saturday night 

1:12
Comment From Lynn R. 

LET’S GO RACIN !! 

1:12
If and when we get lineups for the other heat races, we will post them. 
1:12
The first heat race will be led to green by Mark Anzalone over Shawn Knight, Brian Hoar, Don Wentworth and Joey Pole. Starting outside the top five will be Eric Williams, Billy Childs, Jr., Glen Luce, John Donahue, Wayne Helliwell, Jr., Billy Whorff, Jr. and Gary Cahssain. That is how they have been announced, so the list is highly unofficial. 
1:10
The draw is now complete. 
1:08
Thunder Road Speedbowl (VT) ace Dave Pembroke has drawn #29. 
1:07
Comment From Gary 

Shawn Knight will be tough to beat in heat 1 

1:07
Comment From j forbes 

all race fans in the northeast are lucky that Bob Bahre followed his dream in building nhis so we can all live our dream in attending sprint cup racing. 

1:07
Ben Rowe has drawn number #40. 
1:07
There were a few drivers who were very relaxed before the drivers’ meeting. Ricky Rolfe was hanging out in a lawn chair. We asked if he was taking it easy and he said he was just trying to stay cool. When asked how his car was, Rolfe managed a nervous smile and said, “We’ll see.” Meanwhile, Shawn Martin’s car sat covered up while a number of other drivers were all working away on their cars. 
1:05
Comment From Ricky 

Brian Hoar is certainly capable of going from third to first in Heat One. Expect him to be on the pole for the 250. 

1:04
Scott Dragon has drawn number 17. 
1:04
Comment From j forbes 

Did Bob Bahre initate this race many years ago? 

1:04
Ricky Rolfe has drawn number 67. 
1:03
Yes, this was the idea of Bob Bahre, who previously owned Oxford Plains Speedway and lives locally, back in the early 1970’s. 
1:03
Jeffrey Earnhardt has drawn the number 43. 
1:03
The polesitter for the first heat race, Mark Anzalone, is from Malden, Massachusetts. He has run a limited ACT Late Model schedule in the past and now races primarily at Lee USA Speedway (NH). 
1:00
North Carolina resident Jason Ricker is here today helping out the Carey Martin team. 
12:59
Shawn Knight has drawn number two and will start on the outside poll of the first heat race. 
12:58
No, Dave Whitlock is now retired from driving and is an owner in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. 
12:58
Comment From Guest 

How about the 1995 winner is he there today? 

12:56
Travis Adams has drawn number 70. TJ Brackett just drew 44. 
12:54
1996 Oxford 250 winner Larry Gelinas is here today to attempt to qualify. He just drew number 77. 
12:53
The #99ME entry of Charlie Buxton has been withdrawn. 
12:51
We don’t have track of the pill that each driver has drawn, but we will have heat race lineups when they are available. So stay tuned. The draw will still be taking place for quite some time. 
12:50
Comment From Brian 

Any truth to the rumour Travis Benjamin will run the # 8 pro stock of Hal Oniel racing @ Speedway 660 

12:50
Mark Anzalone has drawn the number one pill! 
12:50
We’re not sure, but we know that Travis really likes Speedway 660 and has nearly won the Peterbilt 250 at the track. 
12:49
Comment From Guest 

Before the 2009 season all cars were GM crates. 

12:49
Comment From 22racing 

64″ track width too and all four rims must be same offset, sealed motors with 6400 chip in msd only 

12:48
Remember, a relatively low number isn’t necessarily a good thing. 
12:47
Eric Williams just drew a six. 
12:47
The draw number for Tim Brackett is a 56. His daughter Vanna, a multi-time winner in the Ladies division here at Oxford this season, drew for him. 
12:46
Brent Dragon just drew a number 68. 
12:46
Comment From Jesse 

Just want to say thanks for all of us who cant make the race! 

12:46
Comment From Guest 

perimeter chassis’, stock GM brakes and 8 inch rubber 

12:46
Yes – and teams with Toyota bodies can also run a GM or Ford engine. 
12:45
Comment From caz 

people with dodge bodies can run either motors? 

12:45
Joey Pole has just drew number five 
12:45
Each heat race will see its top four drivers advance into the 250. 
12:45
Comment From Gary 

How many are they taking out of each heat ? 

12:43
Comment From Guest 

Spoke with Rick Moody at Lee.Said Leighton is suppose to drive 5 races for him this season 

12:43
As of now, draw numbers one and two still remain to be picked. 
12:42
The cars used in the 250 are ACT-spec Late Models. They run spec Koni shocks and GM or Ford crate engines. 
12:42
Comment From sportsman12 

What type of late models are they running in the 250? Same as the Derby or Pass South? thx.. 

12:42
Comment From Guest 

Jr. Hanley=Racing God=a man who can build, set-up, and drive ’em all the way to victory lane. 

12:41
Comment From 22racing 

Brian Hoar seems to have luck on his side this year, on and off the track! Paya has to be happy with him! 

12:41
So far, it is very light. But it is early and very warm today, so we expect that to pick up soon. 
12:41
Comment From Gary 

Hows the crowd? 

12:40
The semi-official car count today now stands at 79. We believe, but are not certain, that is how many drivers will draw for a heat race position. 
12:40
No, Mike Rowe will not be racing today. We have seen him as a spectator at various ACT races held at Oxford though, so we might see him in the stands. 
12:40
Comment From guest 

Is Mike Rowe there? 

12:39
This is what 80 drivers looks like in the pits at Oxford. (51 Sports Photo)
12:39
So far in the draw, Brian Hoar is the low draw with a three. 
12:35
That’s 13 cars per heat race. 
12:35
Looks like 79 cars will draw for spots in the heats today.

We just got word from the pits that Al Hammond is here in his fire suit getting ready to run for a shot at the 250. 
12:31
Comment From norm juidkins lll 

No Al Hammond??? It’s not a 250 then!!!!!!! 

12:31
The drivers meeting is going on right now. (MP Roy Photo)
12:31
A change to this year’s 250 draw has just been announced. All drivers will move to the front stretch to draw in front of the crowd at OPS. This will be better for the fan who never get to see this blind draw that sets the field for the TD Bank 250. 
12:18
How much money is on the line tonight? Well just to start the race pays a little over $1,000. If you have the night of your life and win the race you get the $25,000 first-place prize. That does not include the $100 lap money that’s paid out per lap. Last year Eddie MacDonald took home $35,300 thanks to lap money. In his dominating days Ralph Nason took home $46,400, $42,700 and $31,900 in three seasons. That’s a total of $121,000. Eddie Mac won $15,000 two years ago thanks to lap money. That’s a two year total of $50,300. 
12:08
Eddie MacDonald won last year’s 250. Since then he has won twice at OPS in the Late Models. (51 Sports Photo)
12:03
Comment From slowel 

Jr Hanley the best short track race car builder /driver ever. 

12:01
In case you’re new to the TD Bank 250 there are no time trials. All the drivers take part in a draw that determines their starting spot in one of the six heat races. If you draw one you’re on the pole for the first race. A draw of 14 could be the tail of the first race or the front row for the second it all depends on the car count. The top four from each of the six heat races make the field while the rest go to the consi round.The top three from each of the three consi’s then go on and so do the winners of each of the three last chance races. A few provisionals and then we’re racing the 250.
11:55
We’ve got to run off to the backstretch pits for the 250 Drivers’ Meeting and the all-important draw. We’ll be off line for a little bit while that takes place, Unfortunately, it is a long walk between the frontstretch and backstretch around the track exterior here, so there is going to be a bit of a break here with our coverage. 
11:54
Patrick Laperle’s #91 is a creation of Canadian Racing Legend Junior Hanley.
11:54
Comment From Guest 

Thanks for the Leighton/RMR update. 

11:54
Comment From Lynn R. 

I would like to thank all of you, for keeping all of us updated. For all of us that cant make the race for one reason or another 

11:53
The Strictly Stocks are now practicing. 
11:53
Comment From Guest 

Taylor’s accomplishments certainly speak for themselves, both on and off the racetrack. However, a 250 trophy would no doubt make the ole trophy case complete at Hound Dog Racing. 

11:50
Jeffrey Earnhardt has been out several times to practice this morning. There have been no speeds released and honestly, with all of the typing I haven’t gotten a good enough look at the car to tell if it is good, bad or somewhere in between. 
11:49
Comment From Rich H 

Have you seen Jeffrey Earnhardt practice yet how does he look 

11:49
There has been no official word from RMR or Leighton about that situation yet, but his entry for the Lee PASS North race earlier this week was withdrawn and we do know that both Trevor Sanborn and Travis Benjamin are planning to run the remainder of the 2010 PASS North schedule with the Moody team. 
11:48
Comment From Guest 

Twisty…with all that has been going on at RMR…has Leighton been relieved of his driving duties there? 

11:48
No, but if you’d like to hear the 250 broadcast live someday in the future, share your desires with the track and maybe someday we could put together a live Speed 51 Radio broadcast on RaceTalkRadio.com
11:48
Comment From norm juidkins lll 

is there a radio station online where I can hear the race? 

11:46
I think it would be safe to say that Jeff Taylor is overdue for a 250 victory. He’s paid his dues and is one good racecar driver and car builder. 
11:45
Comment From Guest 

Nice lookin’ ride…if it goes as good as it looks…should we expect to see more pics of it from victory lane? 

11:45
We have not seen Al Hammond practicing or in the pits today, so we don’t think he is going to attempt to qualify for the 250 this year. 
11:45
Comment From norm juidkins 

Whats old al hammond up to? 

11:44
Yes, Brad Leighton is in the #55NH entry. 
11:44
Comment From Ridge Runner 

Is Brad Leighton competing this year? 

11:44
Last night, Andy Seuss scored an emotional victory in the Modified Racing Series feature run on the night before the 250. He dedicated to victory to his friend, Jay Hull, who had been building a Late Model for Seuss with an eye towards running the 2011 Oxford 250 and a limited schedule of ACT races. Hull was laid to rest yesterday in New Hampshire and the Seusses were racing with heavy hearts at Oxford. We’ll have more on his victory this week on Speed51.com
11:39
Jeff Taylor and his Hound Dog Racing #88ME Late Model.
11:38
The Late Models are now off the track for now and the Mini Stocks are next int eh practice rotation. 
11:37
You’ll see it as soon as this computer program will cooperate with me. 
11:37
Comment From Guest 

Quit teasin’ us ole dogs and post the pic of Taylor’s car…Twisty 🙂 

11:36
Eddie MacDonald is now practicing without a hood on his car. We’re speculating from up in the press box that he might be having overheating problems with his #17 on this very warm and humid day. 
11:32
Currently, practice has died down a bit. Only Eddie MacDonald, Scott Luce and Ben Asheline are on the track. 
11:31
Jeff Taylor’s #88ME even has the logos of Hound Dog Racing on it – which brings back a lot of fond memories. 
11:30
Comment From Guest 

Hooooouuund Daaawg! 🙂 

11:30
Former NASCAR East Series regular Jeffrey Earnhardt is here today. The orange #8NC Late Model that he is driving is a former Alan Tardiff car that has won Pro Series (Super Late Model) races at nearby Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (ME) before being converted to ACT-type Late Model specs. 
11:29
A pair of track champions from last year are among the entries for today. Wayne Helliwell, Jr., who won the Late Model title at Lee USA Speedway (NH) and Ryan Vanasse, who won the Late Model championship at Seekonk Speedway (MA) are both entered in the 250. 
11:28
Today, we have Scott Dragon in the #71 and Brent Dragon in the #55VT. Scott also raced in the PASS North event at Beech Ridge last night. We haven’t seen Bobby Dragon or Beaver Dragon walking the pits, but would expect that they both might be here to cheer on their boys today. 
11:28
Comment From joan f 

How many of the Dragon boys there from Milton, Vermont 

11:27
Yes, Jeff Taylor is here with a familiar green #88 and we have photos too. Stay tuned. 
11:26
Comment From Guest 

Jeff Taylor…rumor had it that he would return this year…any truth to that Twisty? 

11:26
New Hampshire’s Ben Lynch is trying to qualify for his first Oxford 250 this year. The White Mountain Motorsports Park regular is still getting used to the track, as he has only been here once for an ACT race that he did not qualify for. He was very happy with the car on new tires when they were first bolted on this morning, so his 250 dream could come true after the 2pm start of heat races. 
11:24
We asked Eric Laperle, the twin brother and crew chief for Patrick Laperle, how their car was today. Since it was loud in the pits, we asked him for a thumbs up or a thumbs down. Eric responded with two thumbs up. That might mean that the competition is in trouble today as Laperle knows how to win big Late Model shows – like multiple Milk Bowls at Thunder Road Speedbowl (VT). 
11:23
Maine native and former Beech Ridge Motor Speedway Super Sportsman regular Derek Kneeland returned home from his current residence of North Carolina (where he is a spotter for Turner Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing) to attempt the 250 this year. A crew member told us that Kneeland is very happy with his car and was encouraged by being able to run with, and pull away from a bit, defending 250 winner Eddie MacDonald in practice earlier this morning. 
11:21
If you are at the 250 and reading this on your smart phone, please feel free to e-mail us your photos of what you see to [email protected] and we will try to get those up either here or on our Speed 51 Facebook page. 
11:20
No times have been released yet. If we do get anything official, we will share that with you. 
11:20
Comment From Lynn R. 

who has the fastest speed in practice so far 

11:19
We caught up with Canadian racing journalist Marc Patrick Roy this morning and he filled us in about some of the Canadian drivers in the pits for today’s race.Karl Allard has a tought day yesterday before he even headed to the track. At the crack of dawn, his team arrived at their race shop to find that their trailer had been broken into. A EZ Go cart and their radios were among the items stolen. Fortunately, the racecar had not been loaded yet so that was untouched. The team called the police, ordered new Racing Electronics equipment from Roy (who is an RE dealer in Quebec) and headed to the track. They were still here around 10am!

Roy also told us that 2009 ACT Castrol Series Rookie of the Year Justin Holton is doing well so far in practice. Holton is driving the #17ON Late Model.

Also, you might remember that after Kevin Harvick won the 2008 Oxford 250, his Port City car was sold to Karl Allard. Well, that car has not come back this year and probably never will. It has since been bought, sold and wrecked and is now a Super Sportsman car North of the Border.

11:16
Also as a reminder fans, if you’re headed to any racetrack around the country (and we hope you are, because there’s some great short track events all over the place), send us your mobile phone photos straight from your email-enabled mobile phone or from your home computer to [email protected] all weekend long. Whether it’s a victory lane photo or just something funny or cool that you saw at the track that you want to share, send it to us and we’ll use it in our weekend photo galleries on Speed51.com
11:15
Former PASS North regular Donnie Lashua is here today driving the #08 Late Model. 
11:15
We are told that the semi-official car count for today is currently at 78. There could be a few more entries filed before the heat race draw as well. Stay tuned. 
11:14
Comment From wolf larsen 

Third year in a row that I am missing the show. Love this coverage. 

11:14
A few years back, MIke Rowe won the Oxford 250 with an SP2 Motorsports entry sponsored by “Flying Cow”. In that same vein, Canadian Eric Giguere is sponsored today by “Slow Cow”. 
11:10
So many good cars, it’s hard to pick someone. But on Speed 51 Radio this week I went out on a limb and said T.J. Brackett. 
11:10
Comment From LM 60 fan 

Hey Twist – Who is your pick???? 

11:09
Bradley Babb had a problem with a collapsed spring on his Sally Bolduc-owned #4ME Late Model in practice yesterday. The team discovered and corrected the problem before practice ended. Babb told Speed51.com that he was glad the problem occured on Saturday because if it happened during today’s heat races, he likely would have been disqualified for being too low.
11:07
D.J. Shaw will serve as the car chief for Brad Keselowski’s Late Model today. Keselowski is running as a teammate to John Donahue (for whom D.J.’s father Dale Shaw is the crew cheif for). D.J. practiced Keselowski’s car yesterday as the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series regular was racing at Gateway International Raceway near St. Louis. 
11:02
The driver of the #22ME Late Model, Ajay Picard hails from the same hometown of Palmyra, Maine as Speed51.com’s own beloved “Stat Boy”, Elgin Traylor.
10:52
After last night’s races, there were hard showers and thunderstorms that came over the speedway. That drenched some of the Modified Racing Series teams going through tech. Today, any storms probably won’t be an issue – although it is hot enough that a quick passing shower to cool things down might even be welcome. Today’s forecast calls for a very slight chance of scattered thunderstorms and temps in the 90s. Humidity is high. Teams signed into the pits around 6am this morning and are working hard to get ready for the 2pm heat races, so fatigue on those teams could be an issue. Driver fatigue shouldn’t be as much of a story though as the race itself won’t start until the heat of the day has passed. 
10:49
The biggest story on 250 morning is the car count and we’ll be honest. We don’t have one for you. The track has not released an update list of entries yet and there are Late Model teams pitted in the inner pits, outer pits and even the pits of the neighboring Oxford Plains Dragway. Some teams have multiple cars, while some brought back-up cars too. They are spread out in more nooks and crannies than in an English Muffin. We can tell you that there were between 64-75 cars signed in here yesterday depending on whose count that you go by. Our three most reliable counts are 64, 70 and 75 for yesterday practice session.More cars rolled into the pits this morning too, but until the actual heat race draw occurs, we don’t expect to be able to tell you an accurate car count.
10:41
Welcome to Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine for the running of the 37th Annual TD Bank Oxford 250. Right now, the headlining Late Models are practicing. Their heat races will start at 2pm ET with the 250 being run later this evening. Yesterday was an optional day of practice for 250 teams.
