It’s not often that placing 11th in a 22-car race is a reason to celebrate, yet Trevor Sanborn was in victory lane at Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday with the biggest trophy of the night despite finishing in the middle of the pack.

The racer from Parsonsfield did well enough in Saturday’s 100-lap Super Late Model feature to capture the Port City Race Cars Triple Crown title, which earned Sanborn a giant trophy, a $2,000 check for winning the Triple Crown, and most importantly, a provisional spot in this year’s Oxford 250 if he doesn’t qualify into the big race through heat or consolation races.

Sanborn won the first of the three Triple Crown races two weeks ago, then placed third in the second leg of the three-race series. His 11th-place finish Saturday gave him a slight edge for the title over Kyle DeSouza, who finished sixth in Saturday’s feature, after placing sixth and fourth, respectively, in the first two legs.

Ryan Kuhn won the 100-lap SLM feature Saturday, beating out Calvin Rose Jr. and Curtis Gerry. Max Cookson and David Oliver rounded out the top five.

Kuhn also won the most-recent Pro All Stars Series SLM race at Seekonk Speedway in late July, as he and 60-plus other SLM races gear up for the Oxford 250 at the end of the month. Sanborn’s Triple Crown title now guarantees him a spot in a field that often numbers in the 40s.

Other winners Saturday included: Tiger Colby (Limiteds), Richard Spaulding (Street Stocks), Nathan Barth (Mad Bombers), Charlie Young (Thunder Stocks), Evan Roy (Rookies) and Dale Durgin (Figure 8s).


Friday’s winners in Oxford Acceleration Series action at Oxford Plains Speedway featured: Ryan Farrar (Sport Trucks), Maddy Herrick (Ladies), Chris Foster (Outlaws), Derek Cook (Rebels), Bob Guptill (Cruisers) and Colton McNall (Jr. Rookies).

This coming Friday’s Oxford Acceleration Series slate will feature the first night of the track’s annual backpack giveaway. The giveaway will continue the following night as the PASS SLM and Mods divisions will be in action at the track.


A pair of St. Clairs found victory lane and a double-dose of Wicked Good Vintage Racing Association divisions competed during Group 2 action at Wiscasset Speedway on Saturday.

Ryan St. Clair captured the 40-lap Late Model Sportsman feature, and Josh St. Clair crossed the finish line first in Strictly Streets. Other Group 2 winners were Jason Kimball in Outlaw Minis and Allan Moeller Sr. in Modifieds. James Osmond took the Wicked Good Vintage Outlaw feature and Ben Overlock was the winner in Wicked Good Vintage Late Models.
