Hall, Ireland only ones to beat rain, lightning;
It's double features for Championship Night next week

OXFORD, Maine – Lightning and impending heavy rain caused postponement of Saturday night's Championship Series event at Oxford Plains Speedway on lap 8 of the Mini Stock feature.

Grover Gundrilling Championship Night will feature the completion of that race, plus the Strictly and Late Model features, followed by regularly scheduled heats and features for all three divisions. The program will begin at the regular time of 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 1.
Rain checks may not be used, as we had already completed eight full races.
Prior to the opening skies, Quick Super Cup Series drivers Fred Ireland and Rich Hall won twin 20-lap feature races for the touring division. Hall is a former Mini Cup champion and Macdonald Motors Runnin' Rebel competitor in the Oxford Acceleration Series.

Francis Bernard Jr. finished second in each event.
Heat winners were rookie B.J. Chapman and Dale Verrill in Oxford Networks Late Model, Darick Barker and Jimmy Childs in Allen's Coffee Flavored Brandy Mini Stock, and Rick Thompson and Kim Tripp in Allen's Strictly Stock.
OPS returns to action Sunday with its third Motor Mayhem program of the season, featuring Twin Enduros, Spectator Drags and a Smoky Donut Show. Racing starts at 1 p.m.
