ASCS Sooner Region Kicks off Saturday at Caney Valley
TULSA, Okla. (March 30, 2004) -- All three past American Sprint Car Series Sooner Region champions headline an impressive field of entries expected for this Saturday night's season-opening American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region event at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, KS.
In addition to the approximately 30 ASCS Sooner Region sprint cars set to battle atop the quarter-mile clay oval, the Brown Racing Xpress ABF Truck Rebuilders two-seater Sprint Car will be on hand as well. Tickets will be raffled, with several lucky fans winning chances to go for a wild ride with Carthage, MO, shoe Toby Brown, who will also be shooting for a Sooner Region feature win Saturday night.
Defending Sooner Region kingpin Kevin Ramey of Ft. Worth, TX, will be gunning for a second championship in a row, while 2002 Sooner champ Danny Jennings of Norman, OK, seeks to regain the Sooner crown after a second-pace finish in 2003 points. 2001 Sooner Region champion J.P. Bailey will be aboard the Lightning Wings machine as well.
At least one past ASCS National Champion will also be in action, as Oklahoma City's Wayne Johnson will be aboard the second Harvill Industries entry.
Other top Sooner Region shoes that hope to kick off a championship campaign of their own Saturday night include Tulsa-area aces Foster Landon and Sean McClelland, Oklahoma City-area drivers Loyd Clevenger and Travis Scott and Texas guns Derek Drown and Brian Harvill. Tony Bruce, Jr., of Liberal, KS, will include the ASCS Sooner Region schedule on his busy 2004 slate, with rookie pilots Preston Peebles II of Amarillo and Barry McCord of Iowa Park, TX, both expected to chase the entire Sooner Region slate as well.
The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region will present 18 races at eleven different tracks throughout Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas and Missouri in 2004. A total of 109 drivers competed in at least one ASCS Sooner Region event in 2003.
Saturday night's racing action is set to go green at 7:00 p.m.
