TULSA, Oklahoma (June 10, 2019) – Mother Nature has played havoc with the 2019 Ameri-Flex / OCRS Sprint Car schedule with seven dates affected in some way by the weather. The May 24th race at Creek County Speedway saw the feature cut short after rain began falling. Rookie Jase Randolph was the winner in that one.
However, we are not looking back and are moving forward with two more Ameri-Flex / OCRS events this weekend starting Friday at Humboldt Speedway followed by a first-time visit to Nevada Speedway on Saturday.
And added money will be on the line for both shows. The feature winner will take home $1,500 each night as usual, however, start money will be $350 each night.
It will be our second visit of the season to Humboldt where Sheldon Barksdale topped a 20-car field for the win on May 17. Barksdale won there in our previous visit in 2016 and will be looking to make it three straight on Friday. Barksdale won over defending champion Alex Sewell and 2017 champion Zach Chappell.
On Saturday it’s on to Nevada Speedway, which is just 68 miles west to the west of Humboldt, for a first-time visit to the track known as the Grandaddy of Dirt.
Nevada Speedway is a quarter-mile oval that has not seen sprint cars there in many years.
With five events in the books, 2017 champion Zach Chappell leads the points chase by 22 points over Andrew Deal. Sheldon Barksdale sits in third just one point ahead of defending champion Alex Sewell and rookie Kinzer Edwards holds down the fifth spot.
So far Wayne Johnson, Alex Sewell, Sheldon Barksdale, Kyle Clark, and rookie Jase Randolph have picked up feature wins in the five-race old season.
