NAPLES, ME (August 26) – With the 42nd Annual AIM Recycling Oxford 250 Presented By Kenny U-Pull only days away, race teams and fans from across North America are making their way towards the historic Oxford Plains Speedway in Maine. Over 70 of the very best Super Late Models from all over the continent are expected to try and qualify for the richest single day motorsports event in the world. Despite practices on Friday and Saturday for the prestigious event, the field will be determined by a series of heat races and consolation races that will provide plenty of drama as drivers attempt to make the cut for the $25,000-plus to win top prize.
Since 1974 when Joey Kourafas bested nearly 100 other drivers to win the inaugural AIM Recycling Oxford 250 Presented By Kenny U-Pull, the heat races and the difficulty to qualify are part of what has made this race legendary. Whether a champion or a rookie, much of what can make or break your weekend depends on the draw to determine starting positions for the heat races. But a bad draw does not necessarily spell imminent doom. 3-time AIM Recycling Oxford 250 winner has never started better than 10th on the way to any of his victories. As a matter of fact, Rowe started back in 37th and had to advance to the 250 via the consolation race for his most recent win in 2005.
