  • OXFORD, Maine The 2011 Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne has entered the TD Bank 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway. The race will be held on July 22, 2012.

    Since 2004, Oxford has attracted the elite of NASCAR to the TD Bank 250. The trend was started with Matt Kenseth and Kurt Busch competing in the event that year. In 2005, Kenseth was joined by Kyle Busch. The 2006 event drew Kyle Busch, Ricky Craven, Denny Hamlin and JJ Yeley. The race in 2007 saw Terry Labonte and Kevin Lepage challenge the Late Model pilots.

    In 2008, Kevin Harvick raised the bar for the NASCAR crowd, winning the event. The 2009 event saw a Wallace family in-vasion, with Rusty as the Grand Marshall and Kenny and Steven competing on the track. Break-out Cup star Brad Keselowski competed in 2010.

    The race in 2011 saw the return of Kyle Busch, competing in his third TD Bank 250. Kyle did not disap-point, winning the race in style.

    I am excited to run the TD Bank 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway. It is one of those events that every short track racer from around the country knows about and hopes to get a chance to run one day. The race is su-per competitive, but I feel like I have a good shot, Bayne stated. Kevin and Kyle have set a high standard the past few years and I will definitely check in with them to get some advice.

    Oxford Plains Speedway owner Bill Ryan said, We are excited to have Trevor come to Oxford to race. It is a thrill for our fans to see the best NASCAR has to of fer r ight here on a short track in Maine. Trevor is a

    great driver and I am sure he will be in the mix all race.

    Bayne, who hails from Knox-ville, Tenn., competed for eight years on the go-kart circuit earning three World Champi-onships, with over 300 feature wins and 18 State and track Championships combined.

    Bayne moved to NASCAR in 2009 and has regularly competed in both the Sprint Cup and Nation-wide Series since. He became the youngest Daytona 500 winner in history with his effort in 2011. He also won at Texas Motor Speedway in the Nationwide Series in 2011. For more information on Trevor, go to www.trevorbayne.com.

    2012 TD Bank 250weekend of racing starts Friday, July 20


  • The TD Bank 250 is without a doubt the highlight of New England Late Model racing. It is not often that the number of cars failing to make the race is higher than the number that do. This is why many say that qualifying alone is worth the price of admission.

    The qualifying format for the TD Bank 250 consists of Heat Races, Consolation Races and multiple Last Chance Races. It is possible for a driver to qualify by virtue of placing in the top four of his 15 lap heat race, or, for the less fortunate, run 55 laps without ever making the show. Below is the qualifying procedure for the TD Bank 250.


    Determines starting position in Heat race

    Each driver's name is added to a list when they roll their cars through pre-race inspection. That list is used to determine the order of The Draw. A member from each team must plunge their digits into a bucket containing up to 150 numbered chips. A simple task that could mean the difference between sitting in the drivers seat ... or the grandstands.

    6 HEAT RACESTop 4 Qualify (positions 1-24)

    Heat races are an intense and nerve-wracking experience. One 15-lap race will set the tone for your day. Finish in the top four and you have a few hours to prepare for one of the big-gest races of your life. Fail to do so and chances are you'll be scrambling right up until the main event.

    3 CONSOLATION RACESTop 3 Qualify (positions 25-33)

    No driver wants to stare the Last Chance Qualifier in the face knowing they must win to get in. TD Bank 250 Consolations will put every bit of your driving ability through the ultimate

    test of skill and determination. Expect to see plenty of paint-swapping and torn sheet metal as these races are not intended for the faint of heart.

    3 LAST CHANCE QUALIFIERSOnly the winner qualifies (positions 34-36)

    Talk about pressure. It's a race where second-place will earn you a seat in the grandstands. The winner is presented with a buyout option at the end: Take a $1,500 check and a seat in the stands or start at the rear of the field. And don't count out the winner
