Special PASS Event Highlights Big Weekend At Oxford Plains
- For Immediate Release
NAPLES, ME (June 30) – With the 43rdAnnual HP Hood Oxford 250 less than two months away and with over 40 cars already entered, racers from across the continent are starting to focus their efforts toward one of short track racing's biggest events. This weekend a huge opportunity will be presented to Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model racers on the "Road To The Oxford 250." On Sunday, a special 100 lap event for PASS non-winners and drivers who have competed at Oxford Plains Speedway over the last five years will award the top three finishers a guaranteed provisional for this year's HP Hood Oxford 250.
Florida's Dalton Sargeant has made quite an impression since first beginning his stock car racing career in PASS South back in 2014. Since then, he has won a K&N Pro Series race at Irwindale Speedway in California and been among the front runners everywhere he has competed. While a PASS win has escaped him, he challenged for the win recently at Anderson Motor Speedway and finished third in the Over The Moutain 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway. With over 70 cars expected to try and make the field for the HP Hood Oxford 250, the opportunity to get locked into one of short track racing's most elite starting lineups is not lost on Sargeant.
"There will be a couple of firsts for me this weekend, my first time at Oxford Plains Speedway and my first PASS North race," says Sargeant, who will piliot the Windows 10 Toyota Camry #55. "We are using this race to warm up for the prestigious Oxford 250 later in the year, and we'll work really hard to put ourselves in a situation where I can race for those top 3 positions to lock us into the 250. It's going to be an uphill battle as we'll be racing against some of the best drivers on the east coast but we'll learn what we can and apply it for the 250."
An impressive field of drivers will join Sargeant as they look to lock themselves into the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 including veteran campaigners Kelly Moore, Tracy Gordon, Wayne Helliwell, Jr., Bobby Timmons, and Matt Matheson. Derek Griffith will lead the young talent, along with Scott and Dave Farrington, Jr., Adam Polvinen, Ben Ashline, Brandon Barker, and Wyatt Alexander. Plus, many Oxford Plains favorites like Tim and TJ Brackett, Scott Robbins, Rusty Poland, Dennis Spencer, Jr., Alan Wilson, Ben Ashline, and Nick Cusack.
It is a huge weekend of racing at Oxford Plains Speedway, which actually begins on Saturday night with Applebee's Fireworks Night, featuring Super Late Models, Figure 8s, Legends, Cruisers, Trucks, Street Stocks, Outlaw, Bandits, Ladies, and Rebels. On Sunday, in addition to the PASS non-winners 100 lapper, it will be a continuation of the Independence weekend fun featuring the Colossal Carnage 100 Enduro, North East Street Stock Tour, Spectator Drags, Flag Pole race, and a Smokey Doughnut competition.
