Crawley Conquers in ASCS Sooner vs. Mid-South Shootout at I-30

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 3, 2006) -- Three-time American Sprint Car Series National champion Tim Crawley's I-30 Speedway expertise paid off to the tune of a victory in Saturday night's 30-lap ASCS Mid-South vs. Sooner Region Shootout feature event.

Crawley spent the early stages of the feature event chasing current ASCS Mid-South Region point leader Darren Stewart, who started from the front after charging from the tail to win the night's second heat race.

Crawley finally battled past Stewart for the point on the eighth round, with Stewart taking a tumble a couple of laps later after battling for position with Pete Butler.

Crawley beat current American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region point leader Sean McClelland to the checkered flag, with Johnny Miller taking over the show position when Jason Johnson retired to the pit area with a broken rear end on the 23rd round.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr., crossed the stripe fourth in front of two-time ASCS Sooner Region champion Kevin Ramey, with 16th-starter Kenny Taylor, Butler, 17th-starter Justin Sturch, 19th-starter Joe Young and Cody Gardner completing the top ten.

Eric Sandage, Stewart, Johnson and Crawley topped heat race action for the 33-car field, with Gardner and Taylor splitting victory honors in the twin "B" Mains.
