TULSA, Okla. (December 6, 2017) Going into the fourth year of competition, the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products is looking at a 20 race run throughout Oklahoma with events also slated in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Texas.
The 2018 slate is set to open with co-sanctioned events at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on April 6 and 7. Only one date on the lineup is still listed as a TBA on June 1. In all, 10 tracks are listed on the 20 race lineup with the season running from April through October.
“When we put the schedule together, we wanted to have a solid lineup for teams and fans to follow without wearing them out either. Barring having to reschedule anything, we’ve tried to put the season where everyone races every other weekend with each weekend being a double-header so it’s more financially viable for everyone involved,” commented ASCS Red River Region Director, Terry Mattox.
Oklahoma’s Creek County Speedway takes the bulk of the lineup with six shows. Other Oklahoma ovals include Lawton Speedway with two events and Tri-State Speedway. Five dates in Kansas include stops at Humboldt Speedway, Caney Valley Speedway, Heartland Park Topeka, and 81-Speedway.
The ASCS Red River Region will team up for two dates at I-30 Speedway with the ASCS Mid-South Region. Lucas Oil Speedway in Missouri will see one event with the ASCS Warrior Region co-sanctioning the event.
Terry Mattox heads the ASCS Red River Region and can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the ASCS Office by calling (918) 838-3777.
