Stock car racer Travis Adams of Canton, ME was a threat to win the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) New England Dodge Dealers 150 at Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday evening, but the he went about it was a surprise. Adams battled with Colchester, VT driver Scott Dragon for the lead throughout the event, but was resigned to second place as the final laps approached. With nine circuits remaining, however, the lapped car of Doug Coombs spun directly in front the leaders, and Dragon’s Jeffords Steel & Engineering Chevrolet slammed into Coombs’ car. Both drivers were uninjured, but Dragon’s bid for the win was over. He was credited with the 29th finishing position.
Following the restart on lap 141, Adams picked up where Dragon left off, and lead the race uncontested on the way to his first career ACT Late Model Tour win. Adams led the race on three occasions, and finished on the ACT podium for the second time in 2007 – the Oxford Plains Speedway Track Champion was a third-place finisher in ACT’s Time Warner Cable 100 in August.
