After 100 laps of ground-pounder action, it was Anthony Nocella taking down the win in the Thunder in the Mountains 100 at White Mountain Motorsports Park, along with the $3,500 going to the victor in the inaugural Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge presented by RaceChoice.
Final PASS Tune-Up For 250 This Weekend At Oxford Plains
NAPLES, ME (August 9) – With just two weeks remaining before the green flag drops on the 46th Annual Oxford 250, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Model drivers will get one last chance this weekend to prep at Oxford Plains Speedway. The Honey Badger Bar & Grill 150 on Sunday afternoon will give racers their best opportunity to hit the track in similar conditions to those they will experience in the 250. And, as the last race in “The Road To The Oxford 250” program, a final group of drivers will get the honor of being locked in to North America’s most prestigious Super Late Model event. Competitors will have the opportunity to race for one of the richest winner’s purses in asphalt short track racing, with $25,000 to win, plus an additional $25,000 in lap leader money. Last year’s winner, Bubba Pollard of Senoia, GA, took home over $28,000 last year for his efforts in becoming the first southern driver to win the Oxford 250 since 1983. While no one in the last two decades has led more than Joey Polewarcyzk’s 205 laps in 2012, if a driver could somehow manage to lead all 250 laps, they would take home $50,000 for the win.
The Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge presented by RaceChoice is closing in fast on its first-ever event, the Thunder in the Mountains 100 at White Mountain Motorsports Park. With around 20 cars in both the Modifieds and MSD Legends divisions expected for Saturday’s event, both drivers and owners are growing more and more excited about Saturday’s event.
