OXFORD, Maine — Former track champion Timmy Brackett of Buckfield took a first step toward reclaiming the track crown won last season by his son TJ with a 50-lap triumph in the Budweiser Super Late Models Saturday night at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Brackett started on the front row, outgunned New Hampshire racer Andy Shaw at the start, then fended off several challenges by Peru’s Gary Chiasson to win.

Chiasson and Minot’s Scott Farrington waged an entertaining battle for runner-up honors, with Chiasson prevailing as the checkered flag waved. Shaw managed to claim a fourth-place finish, with the top five filled out by Justin Gibbons of Bridgton. Brackett and Shaw won 12-lap heat races.

Theriault finishes 14th in NASCAR trucks

At Kansas City, Kansas, Matt Crafton didn’t have the fastest truck in Friday night’s Toyota Tundra 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway, but he had the best feel for fuel mileage and that gave him the victory.

With truck after truck pulling off the 1.5-mile Kansas oval during the last five laps with empty fuel cells, Crafton cruised over the finish line with only a few drops of fuel left.

Fort Kent native Austin Theriault finished 14th in the race after starting 23rd.

The victory was the second of the season for Crafton, the defending series champion, and his second in the last three Camping World races at Kansas. That made him the first driver to win more than once at the track located on the far west side of Kansas City.

Ryan Newman, making his first truck series start since 2013, finished second and Johnny Sauter was third.

The victory appeared to be in the hands of rookie Erik Jones as the Kyle Busch Motorsports driver led 151 of 167 laps. He had a big lead when, with four laps to go, he ran out of fuel and had to pit.
