Gastineau caps perfect weekend with victory at Longdale
Picks up 4th victory in 5 events

By John Rittenoure

LONGDALE, Okla. (August 29, 2015) - Whit Gastineau is finding out first hand if the old adage, “Winning never gets old”, is true. Saturday the Moore, Okla. native powered around Robert Sellers with five laps remaining to win the AmeriFlex Hose and Accessories Oil Capital Racing Series main event Saturday at Lonsdale Speedway.

It was Gastineau’s second victory of the weekend and his fourth AmeriFlex / OCRS victory in five races.

“When it is rolling its rolling, when it’s not it’s not,” Gastineau said of his winning streak afterwards in the pits.

Gastineau won the Harold Leep Classic presented by Carter-Maxwell on Friday at Outlaw Motor Speedway and after winning the first heat on Saturday he had a good feeling.

“We were fast in the heat and I kind of thought it would be me and the Sellers,” Gastineau said. “I knew lap traffic was going to be a factor and it was.”

Gastineau started eighth in his Shell Lube sponsored sprinter and had to work his way toward the front. Cameron Hagin took the early lead with Sellers giving chase followed by Perry Pickard. By the third lap Gastineau was already in fourth. Hagin stayed in command for 11 laps finally giving the lead to Sellers in traffic on lap 12. Gastineau moved around Pickard for third on lap five.

On lap 16 Gastineau passed Hagin for second then reeled in Sellers and passing him for the lead on lap 21.

“I watched him for 10 or 15 laps and just kind of held my ground,” Gastineau said of Sellers. “After awhile you have to get up in the rough stuff and go.

“I knew I was better in traffic and that is what helped us.”

It was the 23rd OCRS career victory for Gastineau. Sellers finished in second with Hagin settling for third. Shane Sellers and Shayla Waddell rounded out the top five.
