Date Change Announced For Season Finale (Aug. 5) - Organizers for the International Pro Stock Challenge (IPSC) have announced a schedule change for the series' 1999 season finale. The Citra 150, originally planned for Saturday, September 11th, has been rescheduled for Friday, September 10th at 7 p.m.

"There are several special events already scheduled in Northern New England for September 11th, including the NASCAR Busch North Series race at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway," said Bill Ryan, Oxford Plains Speedway track operator. "We felt it was in the best interest of the race fans to choose the Friday, Sepetmber 10th date."

The Citra 150 will determine the '99 IPSC champion, concluding the six-race season for the series, which will award over $560,000 CDN - $370,000 USD throughout the year. A tight points battle is shaping up with Maine's Ben Rowe and Nova Scotia's Scott Fraser swapping the points lead after each of the last three events. Fraser currently leads Rowe by only two markers. Maine drivers Tim Brackett, Adam Friend and Scott Robbins are third, fourth and fifth, respectively, with just 40 points separating these three.

Victories in the first four events for this year have been an "International Split" with Nova Scotia's Fraser and Bobby White winning Rounds 1 and 2. Maine drivers have mounted a strong comeback with Ralph Nason and Rowe winning Rounds 3 and 4.

Round 5 is set for August 28th with the Atlantic CAT 150 at Scotia Speedworld in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Pit gates will open for the Citra 150 at Oxford Plains Speedway on Friday, September 10th at Noon. Practice starts at 2 p.m. Snap-on Tools Time Trials will get underway at 5:30 p.m. and Motor Mart Heat Races will start at 7 p.m.

Spectators on hand for the Citra 150 will also see season championships decided in four of the five divisions that compete in Oxford Plains Speedway's weekly racing series. Feature events for the Late Model Stock Car, Limited Sportsman, Strictly Stock and Mini Stock classes will provide support class action and also be the last points race of the '99 season for these competitors.
