Addie McDaniel of Bridgton, Maine, will be back in the #56 racing in the Rebels and Bandits Series at Oxford Plains Speedway. Addie has been keeping busy during the off season. “This off season I’ve been mainly finishing school, working, and enjoying the snow. Not too much racecar stuff going on right now.”

 

April 22nd is the first day of race season at OPS, “This year I’ll be running Rebels on Wednesday nights full time. Also depending on when I get my bandit straightened back out, we’ll be back on Saturday nights with that car (probably around mid to late season) I also have a surprise in store for 2018 that I can’t spill yet! Last year, I raced bandits full time getting 10th in points (missing 9th by 1 point!) and got to try the new rebel and finished 3rd in a heat before I lost the alternator and couldn’t make the feature.”
