ASCS Sooner Slate Announced

TULSA, Okla. (January 9, 2009) -- Set for its ninth year of competition, the 2009 schedule for the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region was released from the series Tulsa-based office today.

The 2009 slate currently consists of 13 stops seven different tracks, with less travel involved as most of the events south of the Red River will now fall under the ASCS Lone Star Regional banner.

The ASCS Sooner Region will kick off the 2009 campaign at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, OK, on April 25, the first of three scheduled stops at the 0x00bc-mile clay oval near Tulsa.

Other events in Oklahoma include three stops at Oklahoma City's State Fair Speedway and a pair of events at Lawton Speedway.

The series is also tentatively slated for a Missouri weekend on June 19-20 with events at Monett Speedway and Springfield Raceway.

The ASCS Sooner racers will also make a pair of journeys to Texas, with the first event a May 9 card at Devil's Bowl Speedway to complete the two night Red River Shootout versus the Lone Star Region that opens the night before at State Fair Speedway.

The ASCS Sooner Region wraps up the 2009 season versus the Lone Star and Gulf South Regions with the Second Annual Cowtown Sprint Nationals in Kennedale, TX, on October 9-10.

Tulsa's Brian McClelland reigns as the defending American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region champion after edging Graham, TX, shoe Kolt Walker by just seven markers for his second consecutive championship in 2008.
