Oxford, ME – Joey Doiron and the #73 Wild Willy’s Burgers/JBJ Machine team were fresh of a win in the last Pro All Stars Series event at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway going into their biggest race of the season. The team had another strong outing in the biggest short track race in the country, the Oxford 250. Doiron lead over 70 laps early on, and was in contention for the win late in the race when with ten laps to go, he suffered an engine issue that he was forced to ride out with, finishing the 250 lap race in 11th place.

 

“It’s really disappointing to have it finish that way for us,” Doiron said after the race, “We got caught behind a little bit under the long green flag run, but we played the right strategy and I think we would have been on the podium again this year, but it just wasn’t meant to be. I’m still really proud of my team, they did a great job all weekend.”

Oxford, ME – DJ Shaw and the #60 Precision JLM Racing team have had a very successful 2014 season, one of Shaw’s best to date. One race missing from his resume however, is the prestigious Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway is. This year, Shaw’s team went into the race hoping to bounce back from a disappointing night at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway two weeks ago when they had a shock go bad. In the end, Shaw played his pit strategy to be in position for the win late, but couldn’t hold off the teams with fresher tires at the end and ended up with a 12th place effort in the 44 car field.

 

“We just fought the handle on the car all day for some reason,” Shaw said of the day, “We made our pit stop early to get on a different strategy as the front runners and it almost worked for us, we were there at the end and that’s all we can really ask for, my team did a great job all day and I’m proud of the effort.”

“It was great to see the kids behind the wheel of their karts as every time they took to the track, they improved dramatically, stated General Manager, Dick Therrien. Several of the youngsters were six years old and a little nervous, but before the day was done, they felt much more comfortable. No major incidents occurred, and overall, I was quite happy with the day. I’m looking forward to Thursday night.”

The 41st running of the Oxford 250 was a crowd pleaser as sixty of the best Super Late Model teams in the country converged on the small town of Oxford, Maine to participate in the historic event. The fans were treated to over seven hundred laps of racing, with several teams collecting checkered flags, but none as happy and as excited as Travis Benjamin, whom collected his second straight $25,000 payday, plus lap money.

Forty-four Super Late Models lined up on the grid with Concord, N.C. speedster, Preston Peltier and Turner, Maine’s, Shawn Martin filling the front row when the green flag flew. Peltier jumped to lead and held the point for the first 21 laps with the exception of lap six when Kelley Moore edged him out at the stripe. Joey Doiron raced by Peltier on lap 21 and held the point for the next 66 laps with Austin Theriault, Shawn Martin, Scott Mulkern and Moore in tow. Theriault held the lead through four restarts before he and Travis Benjamin pitted for tires and fuel on lap 185, setting the stage for a storybook ending. Cassius Clark took over the lead from Theriault as pit stops completely changed the lineup around. DJ Shaw, Richie Dearborn, Scott Moore and Johnny Clark were all now in the top five and ready to challenge for the lead. Clark held the lead all the way until lap 220 when Richie Dearborn edged him to the stripe when the final caution waved.

Mark Lucas took advantage of another driver’s displeasure to capture the inaugural Mayhan Antiques & More 75 lap main event. Other support division winners visiting Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy victory lane on day three of the Oxford 250 weekend included Josh Childs, Mathew Bourgoine, and Kris Watson.

Joshua Brown was headed for an easy win in the PASS Modified race, but tangled with a lapped car around lap 50. Contact sent the #05 of Ron Henry around in turn three bringing out the caution. The field raced back to green with Brown pulling away once again. Mitch Miller raced his way to second while Mark Lucas and Andy Shaw battled for third. Lucas raced by both Shaw and Miller to take over the second spot, but had nothing for Brown until Brown was run high by Henry in turn four allowing much of the field to race by, handing Lucas the lead. Lucas cruised to his second win of the weekend, and the hefty $1,000 payday. Miller placed second ahead of Shaw, Brown and Billy Dixon.
