The Road To the 50th Oxford 250 Begins This Weekend
The Oxford Championship Series and PASS Super Late Models will both hit the track on Saturday and Sunday at Oxford Plains Speedway.
This year marks the 50th Annual Oxford 250, a half-century of racing for a crown jewel of the Northeast short track racing scene. Each year, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model event draws one of the biggest entry lists of the season, and the entire Oxford 250 weekend is a three-day festival of speed building to the 250-lap main event.
This weekend at Oxford Plains Speedway features a pair of Super Late Model races to kick off the road to this year’s Oxford 250. The Oxford Championship Series races on Saturday, April 22, while the PASS Super Late Models hit the track on Sunday, April 23.
Many competitors will take part in both Super Late Model events, with locals and PASS traveling stars alike taking advantage of the chance to get on track for the first time at Oxford Plains this year.
Drivers entered for Sunday’s PASS Honey Badger Bar & Grill 150 include PASS champions Johnny Clark, D.J. Shaw and Mike Rowe, former Oxford 250 winner Gary Drew, defending Oxford Championship Series Super Late Model champion Max Cookson and more.
Sunday's race marks the first of four PASS races prior to this year's Oxford 250. Already, more than 50 teams have filed entries for the 50th Annual Oxford 250, which promises to be one of the biggest events of the year and will take on extra significance on this milestone anniversary.
Saturday’s racing begins at 1:30 p.m. ET, with Street Stocks, Mad Bombers, Thunder Stocks, Rookies and Figure 8s also in action. Sunday’s racing also begins at 1:30 p.m. ET, featuring the PASS Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds and Oxford Plains Limiteds.
For fans unable to make the trip to Oxford, Maine, both days of racing will be available to watch on Racing America for subscribers.
