OXFORD, Maine — Manchester’s Reid Lanpher and Curtis Gerry of Waterboro prevailed in a pair of caution-free, 50-lap Super Late Model main events at Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday.

Lanpher dominated the first race at the .375-mile oval track from his front row starting position, his fastest lap a quarter-second better than his nearest rival in the non-stop affair. Gerry, after starting fourth, was 2.714-seconds behind Lanpher, with polesitter Ryan Deane of Winterport earning third place.

Ryan Robbins of Dixfield, who lined up in seventh spot, earned the first of his two top-five finishes with a fourth-place run. Buckfield’s TJ Brackett rounded out the top five.

Gerry started third in the second race and outran nine-time track champion Jeff Taylor of Farmington to the checkered flag in a much closer, and still caution-free event. Taylor, an infrequent entrant in recent years at the track he once dominated, kept things close, finishing less than a half-second behind Gerry in the second Super Late Model 50-lapper.

Deane nailed down his second third-place finish of the day, just ahead of a fast-closing Lanpher, who turned in the fastest lap of the race after starting from 12th. Tenth-starting Robbins made a late move into fifth spot, his second top-five finish of the afternoon.
