Oxford — Travis Benjamin nailed down his second consecutive Pro All Stars Series North Super Late Model victory on Sunday night at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Benjamin, in the Petit Motorsports #7, needed most of the race distance to mount a challenge to Cassius Clark of Farmington, who dominated most of the race driving the Nova Scotia-based King Racing entry. Benjamin moved alongside Clark for a late-race restart and was able to prevail from the outside groove.

Glen Luce of Turner also got by Clark in the waning laps to earn a second-place finish after a couple of disappointing weeks saw him ousted from the series championship lead. Clark ended with a third-place finish and optimism about returning with the car for the 44th Oxford 250 on Sunday, Aug. 27.

Curtis Gerry of Waterboro was the fourth-place finisher, while Travis Stearns of Auburn earned his first top-five Pro All Stars Series finish. Joey Doiron of Berwick was sixth, followed by Derek Griffith of Hudson, N.H. Massachusetts racer Derek Ramstrom was eighth, followed by Dave Farrington Jr. of Jay and Chad Dow of Pittsfield.

Clark, Stearns and Benjamin posted victories in 15-lap heat races.
