Destination: Lawton Speedway

Tulsa OK (April 5, 2016) – After an unusual early season hiatus from racing action since the season opener on March 19th, the Ameri-Flex / OCRS sprint cars will be back pounding the race track this Saturday night at the Lawton Speedway in Lawton Oklahoma. Saturday will be the first of three tour stops for the winged warriors in 2016 at the Lawton Speedway equaling a series high for attendance in a single season at the historic ¼-mile oval. The mark was originally set just last season.

Whit Gastineau enters the event as the Ameri-Flex / OCRS points leader by virtue of his season opening win on March 19th at the Brill Motor Speedway. Sean McClelland sits second in points followed by Zach Chappell who took the Action Auto Collision Hard Charger Award by storming to a third place finish from an 18th place starting position in the 2016 opener.

Multiple local area challengers that are anticipated to give the traveling jockeys a run for their money includes drivers such as: Gary Owens, Kyle Ezell and Joe Bob Lee among others. Sean McClelland, 2015 Ameri-Flex / OCRS champion Robert Sellers and Cody Wampler were Lawton victors last year. In all, a solid group of cars are expected for the second event of the young season.

Nutz n’ Boltz

Double Trouble:
Whit Gastineau will be looking to win back to back events to start off the new season, a feat he also accomplished in 2014.

First Timer:

Brian Gramm scored his first ever Ameri-Flex / OCRS top 10 finish at the season opener last month.

The Lady Returns:
Miss Kacee Frazier has announced her intentions of returning to Ameri-Flex / OCRS action this Saturday. Frazier last competed with the series in October of 2014. In June of that year, Frazier won the main event at the Monett Speedway in Missouri.

Yo-Yo Return:
Alex Sewell’s return to the Ameri-Flex / OCRS series last month had peaks and valley’s. Sewell spun in his heat race, which place him in one of two Wesmar Power Parts B-Feature’s. He fought off Brian McClelland to snare the last transfer spot into the A-Feature. From there, Sewell started 20th and finished 8th. Sewell’s last run in Ameri-Flex / OCRS competition was in 2013.

More Returns Are In:
Darien Roberts made his return to the series as well last month. Roberts won one of the two Wesmar B-Features and finished 16th in the A-Feature. The last time Roberts competed in the series was in 2011. Where were you five years ago?

That’s More Like It:
Michael Bookout started racing with the Ameri-Flex / OCRS series in 2012. He has participated in all season opening events since then and only made the main event once. That came on 2014 where he finished 17th. Last month, Bookout made the main event and finished a solid 8th to start the season.

Power In Numbers:
The series started the year with 34 cars at Brill Motor Speedway. That was the same number as the start last year at the Southern Oklahoma Speedway. In 2013, Longdale Speedway produced 32 chariots. The record for a season opener is 40 at the Lawton Speedway in 2011. The year before there were just 26 starters at the Outlaw Motor Speedway. Oh how times have changed.
