Hafertepe Leads It All The Way With ASCS Win At Creek County

Taking off from the front row with the No. 15d of Andrew Deal, it was the No. 15h of Sam Hafertepe, Jr. who took off with the lead and never looked back with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products.

Getting laps at the Oklahoma quarter-mile in preparation for a Speedweek return on Thursday, June 14 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, Hafertepe was chased to the line by Matt Covington who trailed by 2.128 seconds.

Struggling with mechanical issues in his Heat Race, Blake Hahn was on a mission when the green flag dropped for the 25 lap affair, cutting a path from 16th to third with Wayne Johnson and Tyler Thomas, from 10th, rounding out the top-five.

Sean McClelland in sixth was trailed by Micky Walker from 11th. Cannon McIntosh from 13th was eighth with Harli White ninth. From the 20th starting spot, Fred Mattox completed the top-ten.
