Bryan Hulbert – QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (November 26, 2021) His third race in a row in Arizona this month, and just as many trips to Victory Lane, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. found his way to the top with the ASCS Southwest Region during Friday night’s Copper Classic A-Feature.

Getting the jump from the pole, Brock Zearfoss led the way with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. chasing. In traffic on Lap 8, Hafertepe rolled in from nearly a second back to 0.013-seconds on Zearfoss. Working low on the No. 7, the two crossed each other up the following lap, with the No. 15h to the lead on Lap 10.

Red on Lap 11 for 11th running Mark Dobmeier in the third turn, the North Dakota shoe was able to walk away. Getting away on the restart, Hafertepe began working traffic himself with eight laps to run.

Working bottom around the Arizona Speedway in the first two turns, Sam rolled the boards in the third and fourth turns. Able to keep around a second over the No. 7, traffic nearly struck the No. 15h on the final lap. Opening the door in the last two turns, Zearfoss shot under Hafertepe but could not pull off the upset, with Sam winning by 0.494-seconds.

Zearfoss in second was followed by tenth starting Justin Sanders to make up the night’s podium with a last-lap pass on Joel Myers, Jr. Rounding out the top five was Corey Day from 11th. Robbie Price was sixth, followed by J.J. Hickle. Through a B-Feature, Austin McCarl charged from 20th to eighth, with Chase Goetz and Max Mittry completing the top ten.

The Copper Classic concludes Saturday, November 27. Racing begins at 6:35 P.M. (MT).
