TULSA, Ok (Sept. 10, 2019) – A busy month of September continues for the AmeriFlex / OCRS Sprint Cars with back-to-back shows scheduled for Caney Valley Speedway and Creek County Speedway this weekend.
The weekend begins on Friday with a return to Kerry Gorby’s Caney Valley Speedway where predicting a winner is anyone’s guess. Especially considering A feature pay has been increased to $500 to start for this event.
Defending champion Alex Sewell won there in April and was chased across the line by Layne Himebaugh and Sheldon Barksdale. In July the AmeriFlex / OCRS series was back on the quarter-mile where the Gasman, Whit Gastineau, was victorious. The only repeat finisher was Barksdale who improved to second. Job Bob Lee picked up third.
Saturday the AmeriFlex / OCRS sprinters return to Oklahoma for the third visit of the season at Creek County Speedway. Predicting a winner there will be just as difficult. Rookie Jase Randolph grabbed his first career win with Barksdale holding down second on May 24. The next night Kyle Clark cruised to his second career victory.
So far in 2019 eight drivers have won in 11 events. Points leader Zach Chappell leads the way with three wins, Barksdale has two with single victories by Randolph, Clark, Gastineau, Sewell, Wayne Johnson and Joe Wood, Jr.
