Top Story OCRS Oil Capital Racing Series

By John Rittenoure
TULSA, Okla. (June 5, 2023) – The AmeriFlex Hose & Accessories OCRS Sprint Cars return to Lawton Speedway for a second time on Saturday after rain forced a cancellation there in March.

Tanner Conn and Steven Shebester picked up wins at Lawton in 2022 and are expected to be a factor on Saturday.

Alex Sewell became the fourth different winner in five events on May 27 at Salina Highbanks Speedway. Sewell was awarded the win after Blake Edwards crossed the finish line in first but weighted five pounds like at the scales and was disqualified.

Zach Blurton leads the winners list with two victories, Tanner Conn won the season opener at Red Dirt Raceway, three-time champion, and Sean McClelland won at the new Arrowhead Speedway.

Johnny Kent continues to lead the points chase with a 27 point lead over former champion Joe Bob Lee. Veteran Danny Wood sits in third with Alex DeCamp and Sheldon Barksdale rounding out the top five.
