We get a small glimpse ahead to the Oxford 250 on Saturday, as both the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models and the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) will be in action on Sunday at the Maine bullring. Here are 10 things to know before Sunday's action-packed day of racing at Oxford Plains.

- On Sunday, Oxford Plains Speedway will host a doubleheader, as the ACT Late Models and the PASS Super Late Models will headline a full card of racing. The ACT Late Models will go 125 laps, while the PASS Super Late Models will go 150 laps.

- The crossover from the weekly Super Late Models always brings several drivers who can mix it up with the touring series regulars. The weekly series has produced nine different winners in 10 races this season, including some veterans and first-timers. Max Cookson is the only driver with two wins.

- PASS has had two stops this season at Oxford and they will have another one before the Oxford 250 in August. Cole Butcher and Joey Doiron have won the two races this season. The one consistent thing between the two races was Johnny Clark, who finished second in both races. The 2020 Oxford 250 winner has posted four-straight top five finishes dating into last year.


- The PASS event has well over 30 entries with more expected during the weekend.

- July is a busy month for the PASS regulars with this race, a doubleheader at White Mountain Motorsports Park (NH) next weekend and a mid-week show at Seekonk Speedway (MA). The four races in 17 days is one of the busiest stretches in the calendar.

- In the first PASS race at Oxford Plains this year, 17 drivers were on the lead lap at the finish, while 26 drivers completed the full distance in the second race.

- The ACT Late Models have had 56 prior stops at OPS, and now they get ready for their first stop of the summer at Oxford. The next stop, of course, will be on the Saturday of Oxford 250 weekend. D.J. Shaw is the points leader in the series, and will run both races this weekend.

- It’s hard to mention the Oxford track without mentioning Curtis Gerry, who has been the ultimate weekend warrior in the last few seasons. With nine touring wins at OPS and 11 weekly wins, he’s the perfect blend between PASS-Wacker and OPS Regular. Look for him to run well as we get close to Oxford 250 time.

- Looking ahead to the Oxford 250 finds that they are right at 60 entries heading into the July PASS weekend at Oxford. Local drivers and fans are counting the days down to the 49th running of the historic race where $25,000 awaits the winner.

- The whole day of racing will be seen live on RacingAmerica.TV - They are the home for the Oxford 250 and all the major PASS events at OPS.
