ACT Late Model Tour at OPS
Jeff Taylor Handed Second ACT Win at Oxford Plains Speedway
Jeff Taylor of Farmington, Maine scored his second career ACT Late Model Tour win at Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, August 20. Taylor was running second behind Jeff White, who won the last ACT event at OPS, when White ran out of gas with eight laps remaining.
White, the current OPS point leader, and Taylor had broken away from the field following the last restart of the event on lap 93. White clearly had the car to beat as Taylor stuck with him but didn’t have enough to make the pass until White’s ride started sputtering after completing lap 142.
Taylor led the final eight laps uncontested and was followed to the line by Austin Theriault and current ACT point leader Brian Hoar. Two-time Oxford 250 winner Eddie MacDonald and Glen Luce completed the top five. TJ Brackett, Wayne Helliwell, Jr., Dave Farrington, Jr., Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., and Randy Potter filled out the top ten.

Taylor is already on the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (Saturday, September 24) invite list along with Brian Hoar, Nick Sweet, Patrick Laperle, John Donahue, Daniel Descoste, Jeff White, Patrick Hamel, Alex Labbe, Donald Theetge and Kyle Busch.
The ACT Late Model Tour heads north of the border next Saturday, August 27 for their 10th event of the season. They will join the Série ACT Castrol for the combination Can-Am 200 at Riverside Speedway in Ste-Croix, Quebec.
