Trevor Sanborn punched the first ticket for the All That’s Metal Celebration of America 300 on Saturday at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Sanborn won the 100-lap Super Late Model event at the Maine bullring, earning a guaranteed provisional starting spot if necessary for the $40,000-to-win Celebration of America on Wednesday, July 3 as a result.

Sanborn took the lead from Austin Teras on lap 44, leading the rest of the way for his second Super Late Model victory at Oxford Plains during the 2024 season.

“It feels pretty good,” said Sanborn in victory lane. “This car was lights out tonight, as everyone can tell. I’ve got to thank the Mayberry family for putting this on, and all the fans for showing up. I’ve got to thank Richard Moody. He gave us a good car to run. Kyle DeSouza and Jacob in the shop, you can tell them guys have it going on.”

The provisional starting spot in the Celebration of America 300 will go to the highest finisher in Saturday’s race who does not qualify for the event on July 3. Thus, every position mattered not just for Oxford Championship Series points but for provisional priority.

Travis Stearns finished second in the event, battling from deep in the field for a runner-up showing.

“We just started pretty deep and I couldn’t get going for a long time,” said Stearns. “We got stuck back there. The guys gave me a good car. They worked pretty hard all day. We just missed it by a little bit.”

Dave Farrington, Jr. finished third in his first Oxford Plains Super Late Model feature race of the season. He went into the evening preparing for both the Celebration of America 300 and Oxford Plains’ historic crown jewel, the Oxford 250 in August.

“It’s good to be back, and good to be up here in the top three on the podium with these guys,” said Farrington. “Thanks to all the fans coming out here tonight.

“This was obviously a tune-up for that big race in July, and don’t forget that big race in August, too, of course. We put ourselves in good position and have a pretty good piece here. Obviously, we have to maintain it and be here next month.”

Saturday’s qualifier also came on the eve of a Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model doubleheader, drawing a field of 41 cars to the Oxford Plains Speedway property.
