PASS North Series: Bradley Babb
Oxford Plains Speedway Race Report
OXFORD, Maine – Bradley Babb of Windham, Maine, finished 14 in the PASS North Series Ripley & Fletcher Ford 150 at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine, on Sunday, April 21. Babb, the reigning 2012 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Maine state champion, won the pole position for the event after running away with his qualifying heat, and the No. 14 Babb Wood Contractors/McGoldrick Bros. Blasting Chevrolet ran inside the Top-10 throughout the event before being shuffled back on a late-race restart in the outside groove. Still, the finish marked Babb’s best career Oxford Plains Speedway Super Late Model finish and was a good testing ground for the TD Bank Oxford 250 later this summer.

BRADLEY, WHAT HAPPENED IN THE CLOSING LAPS?
I’m really not supposed to swear, so I’ll just say I got screwed. I got stuffed three-wide, which I expected. But then I got run off the track by someone I thought was a friend of mine.
HOW DISAPPOINTING IS IT TO COME AWAY WITHOUT A GOOD FINISH TO SHOW FOR IT?
It’s disappointing that we didn’t get the Top-10 that we should have had at the end, but we were better than we usually are at Oxford. I’m happy with that.
I don’t know if we’ll test here or race a Friday night or something to try and get better for the (TD Bank Oxford)250, but I’m a lot happier to know that we ran decent at Oxford going into the 250 this summer.
