(Oxford, ME) - Driving a replica Mike Rowe Chevrolet, the "king" of Oxford Plains Speedway, Joe Doiron (Berwick, ME) drove into OPSCentral.net's Victory Lane on Sunday as the inaugural points paying victor in the OPSCentral.net Sunday Late Model Series. But, it wasn't made easy as Adam Ricci (Westbrook, ME) had an outside line on Doiron's #20 Rte. 202 Trailer Sales Chevrolet, as the two battled for the last twenty laps.

John Turnure (New Jersey) had held the point for a race high 120 laps, before being involved in a self spin in turn two on lap 129. Turnure had taken the lead on lap 7, and held it for all but one of the next 120 circuits around the 3/8 mile oval. On lap 128, three cars (Turnure, Doiron and Ricci) had been under a blanket for the lead, when Rich Hall (Maine) and Stephen Potter (Moncton, New Brunswick) got together in turn four, which brought out no caution. When the leaders came up on the spinning cars, Turnure's #88 Dodge hopped the curb on the front straightaway, upsetting his car which led to him grazing the curb again in turn two, spinning the CPR Racing Products machine. No caution had been called for the 88, and Turnure could never rebound from his spin, which left him in fifth position and twelfth on the racetrack on an impending restart with less than 10 laps to go.

On the last restart, Doiron held off Ricci until lap 144, where Ricci's Thomas Superwheel Pontiac Grand Prix made an outside move on Doiron, but didn't have the momentum to get past the yellow #20 to take the win. Dan Collins (Statesville, North Carolina) was involved in a wreck on the final straightaway of the race, and slid across the line in third. Turnure finished fourth with Jimmy Vadeboncoeur (Maine) rounding out the lead lap cars.

Heat racing set the field for the evening's racing. Troy Slowik (Wells, Maine) and Don Austin (Kipling, North Carolina) won those 13 lap affairs.

Following the points tally for the night, Doiron hold a slim one point advantage over Ricci. Collins sits two markers out of second with Turnure fourth, by one point. Austin and Vadeboncoeur sit tied for fifth in points, twenty points behind Turnure.

Racing resumes this Sunday as the drivers roll into the tight Riverside Speedway in Groveton, NH.
