Oxford 250 Moves To August Date
Maine's biggest car race is the Oxford 250 and when the green flag drops in 2015 it will be late August - the 30th of August to be exact. That's a month later from raceday past.
OPS is making the change, from July to late August, because the 2015 NASCAR schedule has no off weekends in July and Oxford officials try to lure a couple of big name drivers to the 250. The August 30th date comes after the NASCAR Bristol night race followed by an off weekend.
Next summer's race will mark the 42nd Oxford 250.
