The Oxford 250

OXFORD, ME - Following the huge success of this year's Oxford 250, Oxford Plains Speedway owner Tom Mayberry announced today the date for the 2016 event. The richest single day short track racing event in North America will continue once again on the same weekend and be held August 26 - 28, 2016. The 43rd Annual Oxford 250 will again pay $25,000 to the winner and will 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 28 and will continue the single day tradition that has made this race famous.

The 2015 AIM Recycling USA Oxford 250 Presented By Kenny U-Pull saw droves of race fans from the United States and Canada and over 70 Super Late Models, making this one of the most successful editions of the venerable race in over a decade. Glen Luce of Turner, ME captured the checkered flag and took home $30,100 for his winning efforts.

"This year's race was a great event and once again proved that the Oxford 250 is one of the premier events in all of short track racing," said Mayberry. "But despite that success, our team at Oxford Plains Speedway began planning and working for next year's race the day after Glen Luce took the checkered flag in this year's Oxford 250. The race still has room to grow and we plan on it being even bigger and better next year."

In addition to three nights of racing action surrounding the Oxford 250, plans are already in place to continue the "Night Before The 250" bonfire and concert, further enhancing the festive fan experience leading up to the big race. A full schedule of events and support divisions for the 43rd Annual Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway will be announced in the near future.
