OXFORD, ME Travis Benjamin collected his second straight Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, ME for the PASS North Super Late Model Series Sunday, and the $25,000 payday that went along with winning the 41st annual running of the event.

Forty-four Super Late Models lined up on the grid with Concord, NC speedster, Preston Peltier and Turner, MEs, Shawn Martin filling the front row when the green flag flew. Peltier jumped to lead and held the point for the first 21 laps with the exception of lap six when Kelley Moore edged him out at the stripe. Joey Doiron raced by Peltier on lap 21 and held the point for the next 66 laps with Austin Theriault, Shawn Martin, Scott Mulkern and Moore in tow.

Theriault held the lead through four restarts before he and Travis Benjamin pitted for tires and fuel on lap 185, setting the stage for a storybook ending. Cassius Clark took over the lead from Theriault as pit stops rearranged the lineup. D.J. Shaw, Richie Dearborn, Scott Moore and Johnny Clark made up the top five. Clark held the lead until lap 220 when Dearborn edged him to the stripe when the final caution waved.

Dearborn took the lead at the green, but Benjamin and Theriault were right on his heels. Benjamin made his move on lap 227, grabbed the lead and setting sail towards the checkers. His only obstacles included heavy lapped traffic, and Theriault. Theriault tried every move in the book, looking inside and outside, but Benjamin would not be denied his second Oxford 250 win in a row.

Theriault raced home second from his sixth starting position, ahead of Dearborn in third. Cassius Clark took home the fourth spot ahead of T.J. Brackett.

Tyler Dippel, Derek Ramstrom, Ben Rowe, David Oliver and Shawn Martin rounded out the top 10.
