TULSA, Okla. (April 5, 2022) –
Oklahoma Sports Park owner George Welch has hosted many OCRS events over the past ten plus years including the Oklahoma State Championship and the Harold Leep, Jr. Memorial. But has not held an OCRS event since 2018 due to weather related cancellations.
In 2018 Shane Sellers and Zach Chappell picked up victories on the 4/10 mile oval. Shane and his dad Robert dominated three races held at OSP in 2017.
Coming into Saturday’s program five different drivers have visited victory lane. Steven Shebester, Tyler Drueke, Blake Edwards, John Carney II and Tanner Conn have early season wins. Drueke, Edwards and Carney won for the first time with OCRS.
After five races in 2022 Edwards leads Rees Moran 534-518 in the championship race. Terry Easum, Conn and Shebester round out the top five.
Oklahoma Sports Park is located 10 miles west of Ada on state highway 3W.
Race time Saturday is 7;30.
