Bryan Hulbert – SAPULPA, Okla. (August 26, 2022) A dog fight for the lead through the first half of the feature at Creek County Speedway, the win ultimately went to Washington’s Seth Bergman with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products.
Seth’s 11th win in ASCS competition at Creek County Speedway, the win is his 15th with the ASCS Sooner Region and moves him to third all time.
Chasing Alex Sewell for the lead, the pair were inseparable with challenge after challenge from the Evergreen Coffee Co. No. 23 thwarted. Diving low, looking high, Seth finally got a run to the back straightaway as the race reached the halfway point. Finding Swell moving up the track, the pair went bumper to bumper for a moment, with Swell peeling low as Bergman shot around for the point.
Pulling away considerably before the caution came out on Lap 21, Seth stepped hard into the cushion in the first and second turns but was able to recover and pull away with the win.
Under fire from Matt Covington prior to the late race caution, Alex Sewell was able to fend off the No. 95 over the final four laps. Matt Covington, in third, was chased to the line by Brandon Anderson. Moving up five positions, Sean McClelland completed the top five.
Bradley Fezard made a run from 11th to sixth, with Kyle Clark in seventh. Casey Wills in eighth was followed by Ty Hulsey from 18th. Moving up from 20th, Kade Morton made up the top ten.
Other winners Friday night included Matt French in Factory Stocks, Paul York in Dwarf Cars, and Hank Davis in Champ/305 Sprint Cars.
