Top Story OCRS Oil Capital Racing Series


ENID, Ok. (October 22, 2017) — Robert Sellers won the Ameri-Flex / OCRS Sprint Car season finale Sunday at Enid Speedway while Zach Chappell locked up the season championship and the Truck Lungs High Plains Shootout cash which earned Chappell another $1,000.

It was a fitting season finale for the Ameri-Flex / OCRS series that not only crowned the 2017 champion but also paid lap money thanks to a host of sponsors and the efforts of Enid resident Sam Saeger, and a $5,000 payout from Truck Lungs. Ameri-Flex also provided extra money for a Dash-for-Cash which went to Perry Pickard.

When the night concluded over $15,000 was paid out in the Ameri-Flex / OCRS season finale.

And two-time champion Robert Sellers made sure he got his fair share leading all 20 laps driving his Checkered Flag Trucking sponsored sprinter to victory in the main event for a $2,000 payday.

Jake Martens of Fairview, making his first appearance with OCRS in nearly 10 years, drove the Paul Johnson sprinter to a second place finish. Martens came from second row outside to chase Sellers but could not close the gap. Sheldon Barksdale held down third in the high speed chase around the 3/8’s mile Garfield County fairgrounds oval. Mickey Walker charged from ninth starting position to fourth and Chappell came from 10th to fifth which was good enough to secure his first OCRS Harold Leep Championship trophy.

Andrew Deal made his way into the main event with a B main victory then worked his way to a 10th place finish. Frank Taft is the Amsoil Hard Charger advance six spots to finish 13th.

1) Zach Chappell 187 pts. ($1000)
