NAPLES, Maine – With the 43rd annual HP Hood Oxford 250 less than two months away and with more than 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 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 more than 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 pilot the No. 55 Windows 10 Toyota Camry for Bond Suss Racing.  “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, which is scheduled for Aug. 28, 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 T.J. Brackett, Scott Robbins, Rusty Poland, Dennis Spencer Jr., Alan Wilson, Ben Ashline and Nick Cusack will also join in on the action.
