“Rocket” Roger Brown made national headlines last month by winning the 34th Annual TD Banknorth 250 open-competition stock car classic at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway, and the Lancaster, NH ace is ready to pick up where he left off at the track in Saturday’s Time Warner Cable 100 for the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) championship series.The TD Banknorth 250 victory, worth more than $35,000, boosted Brown into the point lead for Oxford’s L/A Harley Davidson Challenge series, a five-race championship for extra-distance races with a $5,000 purse for the season champion. Saturday’s Time Warner Cable 100 is the fourth race in the series, and is the second of three ACT Late Model Tour events included on the schedule.
“I’ve got kind of a lot riding on this race,” explained Brown, 28. “We’re only two points out of fifth place on the Tour, we’re leading the Challenge points, and I want an ACT win before the year is over. I think we’ll have a good day if we can qualify for the main event, but we’ll have plenty of cars in the pits to get through first.”
