"Seven new winners and 217 cars at OPS Summer Series "

OXFORD, ME--- With a record 217 entries on hand for the Wednesday Night Big Apple / Texaco Summer Racing Series at seven new faces managed to find their way to victory lane in the 11 event program. New to the top of the winners podium were Jeff Lawrence, Glenn Henderson and Randy Robitaille in the Oxford Outlaw division. Oxford Runnin' Rebel winners for the first time included Mike Stevens, Mike Morneau, and Ron Hall. Zach Robitaille topped the 18 Truck entry list in scoring his first win at OPS. Derrick Pratt, Conrad Childs, Tina Follett, and Kyle Kilgore all posted repeat wins for the Summer Racing Series. Oxford Owner Bill Ryan announced that the earlier July race that was rained out will be made up on September 11 with a special ceremony taking place on that date and the awards banquet would be moved back to September 18. And Ryan also said that other tracks in Maine have wrapped up their Summer Series program effective this week and that competitors would be welcome to join the OPS Summer Series. "We'll run an additional feature event for both the Outlaw and Runnin' Rebel divisions, making a total of five in each class, so that they don't factor into the points championship for the OPS regulars.
