Spencer, Tardiff prevail at Oxford

...Spencer, of Oxford, started 11th on the 18-car grid. The two-time Oxford Late Model champion (1999-2000) took the lead from Scarborough veteran Kelly Moore at lap 25 and held off SLM rookie Ryan Robbins of Dixfield to earn the win.

Tardiff, of Lyman, started 12th and raced to a third-place finish, eight points behind two-time track champion TJ Brackett, of Buckfield, who finished seventh. Those finishes created a tie, and both drivers earned two feature wins in 2017.

Tardiff won the title by virtue of having earned one more runner-up finish (three to two) than Brackett during a 20-race campaign that saw 13 different winners in the top division.

PASS finale set for Saturday at Oxford Plains Speedway

...Leading the charge into Oxford is 2012 series champion and current point leader Travis Benjamin, of Morrill. The two-time Oxford 250 winner (2013-14) holds a 25-point lead over Turner's Glen Luce, having taken command on September 23 at White Mountain Motorsports Park.

"We've been running pretty good lately,” Benjamin said. “The first two races of the season we finished 22nd and 18th, which put us in a pretty deep hole. We slowly worked our way out of it. We were down by five points to Glen going into Beech Ridge, and left up by two. Now we just need to seal the deal.”

Benjamin has been the model of consistency all season, earning two wins, nine top-five and 12 top-10 finishes in 15 starts. The combination of Benjamin's talent and Petit Motorsports equipment has proven to be potent. Hall of Famer Mike Rowe won the 2015 series title with that team before the two sides parted ways.

Gerry claims PASS finale at Oxford; Benjamin wins series championship

... Gerry, 47, of Waterboro, started 12th on the 32-car grid, drove around the outside of Joey Doiron on lap 110 and hung on for top honors. Points leader Travis Benjamin charged up from his 13th starting spot to finish second, locking up his second career PASS North championship.

New Hampshire native and former series champion DJ Shaw drove from 16th on the grid to finish third, while Manchester's Reid Lanpher claimed fourth. Doiron, of Berwick, completed the top five.

“It's been an unbelievable season,” Gerry said. “To win the 250 and come back to win this one today is unreal. Between winning the points title last year at The Ridge, the 250 and today's season finale, we've really been blessed. I have to thank God, my sponsors and a great race team for this success.”

Gerry sweeps both major Oxford Plains Speedway races in 2017

Forty-five PASS super late models compete for 32 spots

I was unable to get to the PASS Season finale at Oxford, however, I was in contact with Phil Whipple of the Sun Journal and he reported that the super late-model lineup was nearly as competitive as those attempting to get in the Oxford 250 in August. Phil is credited with the quotes from Curtis Gerry and Travis Benjamin in this episode. Thank you Phil.

The warm weather helped attract a good crowd and 45 cars to the track. There were 32 starting slots available thus 13 had to sit out the race. The County’s Kirk Thibeau, Presque Isle, was unable to break into the field. Thibeau as you may recall had a tenth place finish at Speedway 660 McLaughlin Trusses 250 Labor Day weekend.

Austin Theriault, on break from the ARCA Racing series, dug his old reliable T-Rex out of storage and put on a decent show finishing in 16th place one lap down.
