Back in Victory Lane, Washington’s Seth Bergman captured his 37th career ASCS Regional victory on Friday night at Humboldt Speedway, doing so with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products aboard the Corridor Electric/Oil Field Equipment and Manufacturing No. 23.

Going head-to-head with the National Championship Racing Association (NCRA), Seth Bergman was able to pick his way to the front of the field after starting sixth in Friday’s 30-lap affair. Running the cushion, Seth worked into the top three in the opening laps while Alex Sewell led the way with Andrew Deal in tow.

Moving to second as Deal made heavy contact with the wall in turns three and four with 13 laps complete, Seth tried the bottom of turns one and two for the lead with no success. Back to the cushion in three and four, Bergman was challenged for a moment by Sean McClelland for the runner-up spot but was able to fend off the charge.

Caution again on Lap 21, Sewell again found his command of the race challenged at the wave of the green but again was able to hold as Bergman slipped to third before the red lights blinked on. Moving the field back into its previous formation, Seth this time was able to slip past Alex Sewell for the lead off the exit of the second turn. Battling with Sean McClelland to hold second the following lap, Sewell slapped the wall and went over in turn two; collecting fourth running Tim Crawley. No one was harmed.

With Sean McClelland in pursuit on the restart, Bergman was able to hold off the D&E Supply No. 22 with Blake Hahn coming from 11th to take the final podium step following a late race battle with Wayne Johnson. Advancing from 12th, Harli White made up the top five.

Cannon McIntosh crossed sixth with Tim Crawley able to remain on track to finish seventh. Moving up from 19th, Jeremy Campbell was the top finishing driver with NCRA in eighth with Fred Mattox and 20th starting, Jeff Stasa, completing the top ten.
