During the qualifying race Travis would start 2nd and finish 2nd, so that would start the 17 car in the 13th position for the 150 lap main event.

The start of the feature Travis would work his way into the top 10 early and by the half way mark Travis was running in 6th.

Oxford, ME – Joey Doiron drove his #73 Wild Willy’s Burgers Chevrolet to a hard fought win in the Pro All Stars Series North season finale at Oxford Plains Speedway.  After a dismal performance at his best track in Beech Ridge just a few weeks ago, Doiron was determined to end his PASS North season with a statement, and he did just that.  Doiron took the lead with 18 laps to go from David Oliver to secure the victory in a very short 150 laps.  After the race, Doiron was ecstatic to be in victory lane.

“I really thought I cost myself the race there near the end,” Doiron said, referring to contact made in the last caution, “I just made a mistake with that lapped car, but we pulled it off! That was quite a battle with David, I found some grip on the outside and he was fast down on the bottom.”

Oxford, ME – Evan Beaulieu drove his #56 Hancock Lumber Chevrolet from the 20th starting spot to finish 13th in his first race at Oxford Plains in a Super Late Model.  In the longest race the 21 year old driver has run, the race only had three cautions with a green flag run going for over 90 laps, making it tough to pick up spots as the 36 car field spread out around the 3/8th mile track.  After what has been a disappointing sophomore season, Beaulieu was thrilled to leave Oxford Plains with the finish.

“I grew up watching these guys race here, so just to be a part of it is really special to me,” Beaulieu said after the race, “I wanted a top ten, and we were there towards the end but by the time the yellows flew at the end there I had used up my right rear and I was fighting grip pretty bad on those restarts.  We still had a great finish though and for our first actual PASS race, I’m proud of that effort.”
Beaulieu started tenth and after getting shuffled back in his heat race, he wound up finishing seventh while only the top six advanced into the show, leaving the rest to run the consolation race. Beaulieu started on the pole of the 15 lap “consi,” and lead the whole way to win, and giving himself a 20th place starting spot in the stacked 36 car Super Late Model field.

“It’s been an incredible season, and to see our cars go 1-2-3 in the season finale makes it even better,” Shaw said from Victory Lane, “Today was just a fantastic day. I thought that last caution was going to hurt us, but we fought hard and got the finish we needed. Johnny (Clark) had a strong season, as well, and I congratulate him and his team for that. Today was our day, and now it’s time to celebrate. I’m thankful for my great car owners Rita and Julio Miglioli, all of our partners, my parents and this great team for all their support.”
