Oxford Plains Speedway is a 3/8 mile racetrack located in Oxford, Maine. Established in 1950, the track was originally a half mile before being shortened to a 3/8 mile track. With 14,000 seats, the speedway has the largest seating capacity of any sporting venue in Maine. The main race held there is the AIM Recycling Oxford 250, which has run under various sanctions over the years, including in the early 1990s the NASCAR Xfinity Series in a combination race with what is now the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, but later became a Late Model race, and now a Pro All Star Series Super Late Model race. The 250 green flag lap race has often featured NASCAR's three national series stars, even when it was not an Xfinity championship race in the early 1990s, as it is currently held during the NASCAR late-summer off week. Among the NASCAR stars who have raced the AIM Recycling Oxford 250 are 17 drivers who have won NASCAR Sprint Cup Series majors, with eleven of them Sprint Cup Series champions, and five of those are now NASCAR Hall of Fame members.

The speedway is also known around Maine for yearly hosting two Pro All Star Series Races a year, and for its motor mayhem events that include smokey doughnut shows, spectator drags, jack and jill races, enduros, and formally had the ramp jump that has been discontinued for safety reasons.

The stadium held The Monsters of Rock Festival, featuring Van Halen, Scorpions, Dokken, Metallica & Kingdom Come, on June 25, 1988. A show on the previous day was cancelled.

The Grateful Dead performed, on two consecutive nights, at the racetrack on July 2–3, 1988, with Little Feat as their opening act.

In late 2012 the owner Bill Ryan sold the speedway to current owner Tom Mayberry. Since this time there has been a change in the direction of the speedway, it now longer sanctions any ACT races, but instead host multiple PASS (Pro All Star Series) owned by Tom Mayberry. It includes a handful of PASS Super Late Model, PASS Modifieds, and PASS Sportsman races throughout the year.

This is a list of championship winners in the Super Late Model division.
