ASCS Sooner Region Set for Creek County

TULSA, Okla. (September 15, 2008) -- After an early cancellation due to Hurricane Ike this past weekend, the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region resumes action with this Saturday night's stop at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, OK.

Saturday marks the second Sooner card of the season atop the 0x00bc-mile Creek County clay oval near Tulsa, as Sean McClelland came from nine rows deep for the first of two series wins this season during the June event at Creek County.

McClelland's younger brother, Brian McClelland, holds the series lead entering Saturday night's action as he vies for a second consecutive ASCS Sooner Region championship. The McClelland siblings have combined to win all three Sooner events contested at Creek County over the past three seasons, with Brian victorious there last season.

Brian McClelland, from nearby Broken Arrow, holds a slim 29-point lead over Graham, TX, racer Kolt Walker, with Oklahoma City's Joe Wood, Jr., 18-year-old Glenpool shoe Matt Covington and Lawton's Michael Brown rounding out the current top five in points.

The balance of the current top ten includes Washington native Gary Taylor, Justin Melton (Flower Mound, TX), Sherman Davis (Sand Springs, OK), Eric Baldaccini (Keller, TX) and Sheldon Barksdale (Norman, OK).

Saturday's action at Creek County Speedway is set to go green at 7:00 p.m.

Creek County Speedway is located southwest of Tulsa off I-44 Exit 211, then 0.3 miles south on SR 33, then one mile west on SR 66. For more information, contact the track at 918-247-6675.

The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region is slated for 20 nights of racing action at ten different tracks throughout Oklahoma, Texas and Arkansas in 2008.

The nation's most prominent Sprint Car sanctioning body with a dozen different Regions throughout the United States in addition to the O'Reilly American Sprint Cars on Tour National series, the American Sprint Car Series' (ASCS) 17th year of activity will include approximately 250 nights of racing at more than 100 different race tracks throughout 28 different states and Canada.
