ACT Tour Rolls Into Oxford Plains Saturday, Joins Golden Oxford 250 Anniversary

(Press Release from American-Canadian Tour)

In what will once again be one of the biggest racing weekends in the Northeast this season, the American-Canadian Tour is excitedly counting down the days to Saturday, August 26th for the Tour’s return to Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway. Set to headline the Saturday night program of the epic 50th annual Oxford 250 presented by Spencer Paving Group, officials, teams and fans are excited and honored to join the weekend once again.

Saturday only adds to the long history the American-Canadian Tour has had with Oxford Plains Speedway and the annual 250 lap event that has been marked on racefans calendars every year since 1974. Since the 1990s, the ‘Saturday Night Before the 250’ program has long stood as an iconic, stand-alone night for Late Model racers to converge on the 3/8-mile before Sunday’s big dance. 2023 will mark the eleventh time the American-Canadian Tour has joined Oxford 250 weekend to headline the Saturday night program.

Following his hard-charging performance at Seekonk Speedway just three days ago, Derek Gluchacki stands at the top of everyone’s watch-list. Gluchacki took home the win last year on 250 weekend, following the once-in-a-lifetime blackout that halted the event for nearly an hour. Gluchacki has excelled on the less banked tracks since joining the Tour, evidenced by his wins at Hickory Motor Speedway and Quebec’s Autodrome Montmagny this season alone. Oxford may just provide the North Dartmouth, Massachusetts-native the bread-and-butter he needs to truly battle with D.J. Shaw at the top of the heap with the season winding down.

Speaking of Shaw, the defending champion continues to dig for his first ACT win on the Oxford asphalt, so too is 2018 Oxford Plains Speedway track champion, and current standout, Gabe Brown. Along with Gluchacki, Jimmy Renfrew Jr., Erick Sands, Jonathan Bouvrette and top rookies Andrew Molleur, Tanner Woodard and Bryan Wall Jr. are also looking to make-up ground on the top-two point men out of Center Conway, New Hampshire.

Joining the American-Canadian Tour title chasers will be the ‘Iron Man’ Claude Leclerc joined by fellow Serie ACT Quebec standout Louis-Philippe Lauzier, Milton CAT 250 polesitter Ryan Olsen, former White Mountain Motorsports Park Flying Tiger top-dog Jaden Perry and Claremont Speedway champion Ricky Bly. Both Cody LeBlanc and Davey Riendeau plan to take their respective #7 mounts to Oxford along with Star Speedway hot-shoe Connor McDougal and former Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Modified standout Garrett Lamb. 

The American-Canadian Tour continues a three-in-a-row stretch next Saturday night at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway to headline the annual Saturday Night before the Oxford 250 program. The venerable oval will be celebrating the 50th annual Oxford 250 presented by Spencer Paving Group on Sunday, August 27th with the American-Canadian Tour headlining an action-packed, eight-division program on Saturday, August 26th before taking off to Vermont’s Thunder Road for the 45th Labor Day Classic 200 presented by New England Federal Credit Union on Sunday, September 3rd.
