Top Five Number Two For ASCS Rookie Preston Peebles II
Ada, Oklahoma - Preston Peebles II topped off an impressive Saturday night at Oklahoma Sports Park by racing to a fifth place finish in the 25-lap ASCS Sooner feature after driving to a commanding heat race win earlier in the night over former World of Outlaws driver Danny Wood. This marked the Rookie shoe's second top five feature finish and third heat race win of the season in his popular growing bright-orange Bob Moore Cadillac Nissan 11P sprinter.
"I really like this place. (Ada, Oklahoma) We had our best finish of the season at that time when we first came here earlier in the year, and now we beat that performance here tonight." Commented an excited Peebles after the race. "The car was a bit too loose, or I would have been battling for the win."
After being paced by the Bob Moore Nissan Titan Pace Truck, Preston lost the hole shot at the green to fellow front row starter Tony Bruce, Jr, and would closely chase both Bruce and eventual winner Danny Jennings for the next handful of laps. Peebles slipped up coming off turn 2 after a battle with Danny Wood where he lost two spots placing him back to the fifth spot. Closely in-tow behind the battle for the lead, Peebles spent the rest of the race dodging lapped traffic holding off defending champion Kevin Ramey in the closing laps to round out the top five at the checkers. With only three races left in the ASCS Sooner Region Series, Peebles sits an admirable fifth in points along with marginally leading the Rookie of the Year standings. The Bob Moore Cadillic Nissan Sprinter and Pace Truck will be back in action again this Saturday night at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma September 11th.
