TULSA, Oklahoma (July 1, 2019) – The Ameri-Flex / OCRS Sprint Car Series is back in action this weekend with stops at Monett Motor Speedway and Caney Valley Speedway.
Friday night kicks off the double-header weekend with a visit to Monett Motor Speedway. The last time OCRS visited the 3/8’s mile oval, which is the oldest track in Missouri and known as the “Grand Ol’ Lady”, was 2016 and Whit Gastineau picked up the feature victory over Sheldon Barksdale and Andrew Deal.
Saturday will see a return to Caney Valley Speedway. Our last visit to Kerry Gorby’s quarter-mile oval was on Apri 16 where defending Ameri-Flex / OCRS champion Alex Sewell picked up the win. There will be a fireworks show to celebrate the Independence Day holiday as well.
Heading into the weekend, 2017 champion Zach Chappell holds a 23 point lead over Andrew Deal. Sheldon Barksdale holds down third followed by rookie Jase Randolph in fourth and Whit Gastineau fifth.
Chappell has two victories on the season which came on back-to-back visits to Humboldt Speedway and Nevada Motor Speedway. Barksdale is also a two-time winner crossing the finish line first at Thunderbird Speedway in Muskogee and on our first visit of the season at Humboldt. Other Ameri-Flex / OCRS winners this season are Randolph, Kyle Clark, Sewell and Wayne Johnson.
