Short Track Stars Look To Stop Pollard In This Weekend’s Oxford 250
NAPLES, ME (August 21) – With just days left before on track activity begins at Oxford Plains Speedway for the 46th Annual Oxford 250 and hundreds of campers already dot the property, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model teams are making final preparations for one of the biggest events on the racing calendar. While many eyes will be on Georgia’s Bubba Pollard as he attempts to defend his Oxford 250 crown, the short track star might not enter Sunday’s race as the favorite. 2017 winner Curtis Gerry of Waterboro, ME, has concentrated all his efforts on competing at Oxford Plains this season, with several wins in weekly competition and a PASS North win there as well. Championship contender, Garrett Hall sits just 15 points behind the 3-time PASS North titlist, DJ Shaw, largely in part due to his two wins at Oxford Plains earlier this year. But, after advancing from the last chance race a year ago before going on to win the 250, Pollard is still the driver many feel will be the one to beat in 2019.
