OXFORD — In racing circles, he’s known as an outlaw.

Not one to chase points at any track or in any touring series, Massachusetts native Eddie Macdonald picks and chooses the races he runs, some in the NASCAR Camping World Series, some on the Vermont-based American-Canadian Tour and some major indepependant races.

Those events usually include the bigger ones with big purses, and after years of trying, he finally bagged the biggest short track race of them all, at least in the northeastern United States.
MacDonald took the lead for the third and final time on lap 168, and hung on to claim the 36th annual TD Banknorth 250 Sunday evening at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Quebec-based veteran Patrick Laperle ran among the leaders all night but settled for second, while Vermont driver John Donahue was third. Five-time ACT Tour champion Brian Hoar led 37 laps and came home fourth, while local favorite Shawn Martin completed the top five.
