Livermore, ME – Coombs Motorsports has purchased a late model from Austin Theriault Racing of Fort Kent, ME. The car is the same one that Coombs Motorsports ran in 2009 and sold to Steve Theriault in August of that year. Coombs Motorsports plans to run the 2011 season at home track, Oxford Plains Speedway.

The 2011 Coombs Motorsports late model will feature a new number, 27ME. The number 27 has been a part of the Coombs Motorsports history since driver, Doug Coombs, placed it on his first racing snowmobile. From 1994 to 2002 the team ran 27ME on its Legends Car amassing dozens of top three finishes, three state points’ championships, and the 1999 track championship at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway. With this winning record the team is looking forward to the 2011 season with the 27ME late model.

Coombs Motorsports will also be running the new Ford S347JR crate engine built by Ford Racing as part of the Ford Racing Blue Oval Challenge. The Ford crate engine has shown great promise in the past season capturing many wins including the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and the Milkbowl at Thunder Road Speedbowl. At Oxford Plains, past champion Jeff Taylor, dominated the Late Model division with three wins. With these promising 2010 performances by other Ford Racing members Coombs Motorsports hopes to join in Ford’s winning tradition and drive the 27ME Late Model back into Oxford Plains Speedway victory lane.

Looking forward to seeing the 27ME back on the track? The first race will be May 15’th when the American Canadian Tour comes to Oxford Plains Speedway for the ACT 150. For more information check out the Coombs Motorsports Facebook Fan Page at
