Saturday’s WOXO Opening Day at Oxford Plains Speedway set the stage for both the Oxford Championship Series and Sunday’s Pro All Stars Series event at the Maine track. Trevor Sanborn made the first statement by winning Saturday’s 50-lap Super Late Model feature.

Sanborn moved to the top spot on lap 28 and scored the win against a field of 31 Super Late Models on hand for Saturday’s event. The field featured a combination of Oxford Plains regulars kicking off the 2024 season and PASS touring competitors getting track time ahead of Sunday’s 150-lapper.

“We just want to get geared up for the big races here,” said Sanborn in victory lane. “We’re going to run some Saturday night shows with these guys, so we’re trying to get the car a little better.”

While there will certainly be a celebration for Saturday’s win, the focus now turns to Sunday’s PASS event for Sanborn and company. He knows that keeping the race car clean will be crucial for a strong showing.

“A good draw and go from there. You’ve got to keep the nose out of trouble so you don’t get banged up”

Sanborn took the lead when Travis Stearns slowed off the pace through turns one and two before returning to full song. Stearns admitted following his second-place finish that he lifted believing the caution flag had been displayed.

“We struggled a little bit with these tires,” said Stearns. “A little miscommunication there, we thought there was a yellow. I lifted and Trevor got by us. I think we’re going to be alright. The stagger was just too small and it was too tight for us to get back to him.”

Scott McDaniel started on the pole and led the first three laps before Stearns took the top spot. McDaniel admitted the draw favored him to get track position, happy to take third-place points to start off his planned pursuit of the Oxford Championship Series title.

“I think Lady Luck was on our side drawing the pole today,” said McDaniel. “The car wasn’t really as great as it needed to be. Third is still a good run on opening day.

“That’s a big deal. We’re trying to run the whole thing and hopefully win the championship.”

Gabe Brown finished fourth, with Alan Tardiff rounding out the top five.
