For Immediate Release
(Tyngsboro, MA) – Derek Griffith Racing is poised to make their mark as they ride a wave of great Pro All Stars Series (PASS) finishes into the prestigious H.P. Hood Oxford 250.
John Griffith, Father of Derek and the Car Chief for the No. 12 Hitman Industries/Provencher Insurance/Chuck Taylor Toyota Camry talks about the upcoming weekend, “I dream about what can happen if things go right. We have made huge strides this year; Derek got his first PASS win a month ago, everything has gone great this year. Louie [Crew Chief Louie Mechalides] has given Derek extremely fast cars this year. We’re all just excited to get the weekend started.”
The team purchased a new Dale Shaw Racecars Super Late Model in the hopes to use it for the PASS races in Maine and particularly the Oxford 250 but the car is not complete yet, so the team will be piloting the car that Derek has raced on the PASS series all year, it’s an LCM Racing house car. The power is also supplied by LCM Racing and has been extremely fast at every race the team has attempted this year.
Derek remarked, “Louie owns LCM Racing and has given me the best I could ask for, the car is always fast, the set-ups are dead-on. If I do my job, we’ll be in contention. The process just to get in the 250 can be daunting but our goal is to not just get in, but to contend for the win.”
The 43rd annual H.P. Hood Oxford 250 is considered by many to be one of the biggest short track racing events in the United States. Derek will be battling, along with over 50 other drivers to get into the main event that guarantees a minimum $25,000 winner’s purse.
The 43rd annual H.P. Hood Oxford 250 is set for August 26-28 and the full weekend of racing from Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine starts on Friday at 6:30pm.
