NEWS CENTER- Joey Polewarczyk Jr., or Joey "Poles" as he's affectionately known, was just outside of the pole for the Oxford 250. During the the race itself, there was no debating who belonged in front, as the Hudson, N.H. native led 205 of the 250 laps for his first TD Bank 250 win.
Polawarczyk Jr. led the first 135 laps of the race and the final 70. He beat out nine-time track champ and Farmington native Jeff Taylor, who has serviced and built cars for the race-winner.
For the 2nd straight year, Austin Therriault from Fort Kent finished third. Therriault's sister Brittney is engaged to Polawarczyk Jr.
2011 Daytona 500 champ Trevor Bayne was buried near the back for most of the race. He was only able to move up two spots from his 33rd qualifying spot to settle for 31st place finish.
Former two-time champ Eddie MacDonald finished ninth. 2007 champ Roger Brown was 24th. Scarborough native and '96 winner Larry Gelinas was 37th .
