SAPULPA, Okla. (April 1, 2022) – Just 17 days off the anniversary of his first career victory with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products, Glenpool’s Brandon Anderson returned to Victory Lane at Creek County Speedway on Friday night.
Getting the point from Sean McClelland on the opening lap, Anderson survived numerous restarts and challenges for his fourth career victory ASCS Sooner Region score right as the rain began to fall.
Under fire following a late-race restart, a small mistake by third running Ryan Timms opened the door for Dylan Westbrook to take the position and carried momentum into turns one and two to take second from McClelland. A final caution with two laps to run, Anderson, Westbrook, and Timms all battled into the last two turns with the No. 55b holding on by 0.353-seconds.
Dylan Westbrook crossed second with Ryan Timms third. 0.565-seconds separated the top three at the finish. Working from 10th, Blake Hahn took fourth on the final lap, moving Sean McClelland to fifth.
Slater Helt was sixth, with Chance Morton fighting from 17th to seventh. Alex Sewell made it to eight from 16th, while Matt Covington recovered from an early race spin to finish ninth. Jeffrey Newell made up the top ten.
