Mesquite, TX — (May 17, 2014) — The ASCS Lone Star and Sooner Regions squared off at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Saturday night with 32 drivers drawing in, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. leading start to finish in the night’s $2,000 to win A-Feature.

John Carney II moved past the No. 17w in the closing laps, relegating White to a fifth place finish.

 

Tony Bruce, Jr. crossed sixth with Jeff Swindell advancing from fifteenth to claim seventh. Kolt Walker, Patrick Stasa, and Blake Hahn completed the top ten.
