NAPLES, Maine – Pro All Stars Series President and Oxford Plains Speedway owner Tom Mayberry has announced that former Oxford Plains owner Bob Bahre will be the Grand Marshal for the Oxford 250.
Bahre purchased Oxford Plains Speedway in 1964. He ran it with his brother, Dick Bahre, until they sold it in 1987. It was under Bob Bahre’s leadership that the Oxford 250 made its debut. It began in 1974 as a 200-lap event before being expanded to 250 laps the following year.
Bob Bahre and his family made many improvements to the track under his ownership. He is known as a successful businessman in the Oxford Hills area and beyond.
“We are extremely honored that Bob will be this year’s Grand Marshal, 55 years after he took ownership of the track,” said Mayberry.
Following his time at Oxford Plains, Bahre went on to build New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H.
The 46th annual Oxford 250 will be held on Aug. 23-25 and nearly 50 PASS super late models are currently entered.
