Mid America Ready for ASCS Sooner Region Finale

TULSA, Okla. (October 10, 2005) -- Mid America Speedway in South Coffeyville, OK, is the place to be this Saturday night as the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region wraps up the 2005 racing season atop the 3/10-mile, semi-banked clay oval.

With five feature wins to his credit through the series opening 19 events of the season, Sean McClelland of Collinsville, OK, enters Saturday night's season finale with his sights set on the series title.

McClelland holds a 50 point lead over 2002 ASCS Sooner Region champion Danny Jennings of Norman, OK. McClelland can secure the title by qualifying for and starting Saturday night's "A" Feature. If McClelland were to miss the feature event, Jennings could snare the championship with a finish of twelfth or better in the main event.

While McClelland and Jennings fight it out for the series title, a number of other top contenders will try to close out the season on a winning note. Third-ranked Cody Branchcomb of Sapulpa, OK, looks for his first feature win, while Brian McClelland hopes to give the family another cause for celebration on Saturday night.

Among other top American Sprint Car Series Sooner Region shoes expected for Saturday night are Foster Landon (Collinsville, OK), Derek Cottrell (Fletcher, OK), J.P. Bailey (Ft. Worth, TX), Dex Eaton (Owasso, OK), Earnest Jennings (Norman, OK) and Koby Barksdale (Norman, OK).

Approximately 25 entries are expected for Saturday night's racing action, which is slated to get under way at 7:00 p.m.
