Bryan Hulbert – SAPULPA, Okla. (July 21, 2023) Adding a 22nd win to his career total with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products at Creek County Speedway, Tulsa’s Sean McClelland collected the night’s $2,000 prize after leading start-to-finish at the quarter-mile-oval Friday night.
Able to put distance on Chase Porter in clean air, slower traffic would allow the Missouri shoe to close. Both on the brakes as a slower car lost power off the second turn working Lap 6; the race went to red as third running, Kyle Clark, tapped Sean’s left rear and sent him flipping into the infield.
Back to green for five more laps, Sean again pulled away before the caution flew for debris on the track. At speed through Lap 23, the restart with two to go saw Porter try top and bottom. Taking one last shot through the final two turns, Sean McClelland would not be denied the win, with the No. 1 bolting away by 0.327-seconds.
Chase Porter, in second, was followed by Brandon Anderson, who, after getting upside down during his Heat, had to charge from 18th. Alex Sewell crossed fourth, with Tennessee’s Landon Britt in fifth. Jeffrey Newell made up two spots to finish sixth, followed by Casey Wills up four positions. Making up 11 spots, Kinzer Edwards crossed eighth, followed by Terry Easum and Matt Ward to complete the top ten.
