TULSA, Oklahoma (May 20, 2019) – A triple play weekend is on tap for the Ameri-Flex / OCRS Sprint Car series with back-to-back races scheduled at Creek County Speedway, Caney Valley Speedway and 81 Speedway.
It all begins on Friday with a stop a Creek County Speedway. After two previous attempts to race there were rained out in March everyone is hoping the third time will be a charm this time.
It has been 11 years since the OCRS last raced at the Emmett Hahn owned quarter-mile oval. The last time was July 2008 and two features were run under OCRS sanction. Mike Goodman led 2008 champion Jamie Passmore and Tim Kent to the finish in a non-wing main event while Cody Cordell won the winged feature over Matt Sherrell and Danny Smith.
Following Friday’s weekend opener the Ameri-Flex / OCRS series returns to Caney Valley Speedway for Salute the Troops night on Saturday. Defending champion Alex Sewell won there on April 20th and will be looking to repeat on the Caney, Kansas quarter mile.
The weekend concludes on Sunday at C. Ray Halls 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas with the running of Sprint Car Maynia III. It will be a full night of open wheel racing with three classes of sprint cars in action. The Ameri-Flex / OCRS will be on the card with the NCRA Sprint Series and the URSS sprinters.
