McClelland Shoots for Three in a Row in Saturday ASCS Sooner Go

TULSA, Okla. (April 18, 2005) -- Sean McClelland of Tulsa, OK, will try to extend his current two-race winning streak with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region this Saturday night as the series takes to Ada's Oklahoma Sports Park.

After tying for third in Sooner Region points last year during his first full season with the series, McClelland scored his first career ASCS victory in the season-opening Sooner Region event at Tulsa Speedway on April 2. McClelland backed it up one week later with a wire-to-wire triumph at Cowtown Speedway in Kennedale, TX.

This Saturday, McClelland will try to extend his early season point lead by making it three wins in a row. Three feature wins in a row on the ASCS Sooner Regional trail has only happened on two prior occasions. The first time came in the final three events of the 2002 title when Norman's Danny Jennings put the locks on the series title with three straight wins. Danny Wood, also of Norman, accomplished the feat last year as well.

McClelland enters the weekend with a 14-point advantage over Jennings, who kicked off the 2005 season by sweeping the O'Reilly ASCS National Tour's Devil's Bowl Spring Nationals. Jennings has a pair of feature wins to his credit in past Sooner Region competition at Oklahoma Sports Park as well, with other winners atop the Ada clay including Wood, Larry Neighbors and Nick Smith.

McClelland and Jennings will be joined by a stout field of cars that will include the likes of Tulsa-area drivers Cody Branchcomb, Foster Landon, Brian McClelland, Dex Eaton and Dara Morrow. Oklahoma City-area reps will include 2004 Sooner Region co-champion Andy Shouse and Kerry McAlister, with Texans including two-time Sooner Region champion Kevin Ramey, Preston Peebles II and 2001 champion J.P. Bailey.

Approximately 25-30 entries are expected for Saturday night's racing action, which is slated to get under way at 7:30 p.m. Oklahoma Sports Park is located ten miles northwest of Ada on State Highway 3-W. For more information, contact the track at 580-332-5535 or 580-332-5383.

This year, the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region will contest 18 events at seven different tracks throughout Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas.
