OXFORD, ME (NEWS CENTER) - The Super Late Model cars made their return to the TD Bank 250 Sunday in Oxford Sunday. The larger, more expensive cars were the car of choice from 1993 - 2006. With Tom Mayberry's purchase of the track from previous owner Bill Ryan, the return of the larger cars to the 250 was item #1 on Mayberry's list.
The drivers didn't seem to mind either as 41 cars kicked off the 40th TD 250. Morill's Travis Benjamin, the reigning PASS Super Late Model Champion, had the 250 in his sights all week long. Benjamin battled Berwick's Joey Doiron for the final 10 laps, but held him off to take home the checkered flag. Benjamin called it a dream come true. Benjamin unofficially led 84 laps and takes home over thirty three thousand dollars for the win.
The race also included a record setter...the youngest driver to ever race in the 250. Tate Fogleman, driving the #8 car from Durham, North Carolina is just 13 years old. Fogleman's father also took part in the race, finishing in the top 10.
