Last week saw the iRacing.com Street Stock Series make its way to Oxford Plains Speedway, a small 3/8th mile oval located in Oxford, Maine. Sim racers looked to tackle this tough little track, where you are never actually going straight, in the hopes of winning the championship. Nick Ottinger (Carolina) once again showed why he is a two time series champion and the favorite to take the title this season.
