OXFORD, ME – official release — Oxford Plains Speedway owner Tom Mayberry announced Wednesday night that the 42nd Annual Oxford 250 will move to a new date starting in 2015.
The richest single day short track racing event in North America will now be contested August 28-30, 2015. The Oxford 250 will once again be a Pro All Stars Series (PASS) sanctioned, “open” Super Late Model event, with qualifying heat races and feature racing for the PASS Super Late Models on August 30 to continue the single day tradition the race has become famous for.
Oxford Plains Speedway officials felt that the move to August was needed to accommodate fans who might want to also attend events scheduled for next July at nearby New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
“By announcing the move of the 42nd Annual Oxford 250 to August 30, 2015, we feel this will give ample time to our fans who are looking to plan their summer vacations around this prestigious event,” said Mayberry. “The Oxford 250 is arguably the biggest event in short track racing and we look forward to seeing everyone next August.”
Coincidentally, the move also coincides with the move of NASCAR’s summer Sprint Cup Series off week to the same weekend for the 2015 season. This year’s Oxford 250 was run during the Cup Series’ off week in July before the Brickyard 400.
