ASCS Sooner Region Lidlifter Saturday at Cowtown

TULSA, Okla. (April 3, 2006) -- Race fans making their way to the Fort Worth, TX, area for this coming weekend of NASCAR activity can add one more "must-do" item to the list, and that would be a Saturday night visit to Cowtown Speedway in nearby Kennedale, TX, for the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region's opening event of 2006.

And for the Sprint Car racing purists, the action atop the high-banked, quarter-mile clay oval will more than sufficiently satisfy the racing palate for the weekend. Saturday night's card is slated to get under way at 7:00 p.m.

Fort Worth's Kevin Ramey will lead a strong contingent of entries into the event. Ramey, the 2003 ASCS Sooner Region champion and 2004 co-champion, is poised to make a bid for a third series crown in 2006.J Several O'Reilly American Sprint Cars on Tour National championship contenders, including defending ASCS Sooner Region champion Sean McClelland of Collinsville, OK, 13-year-old Trey Robb of Newcastle, OK, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr., of Sunnyvale, TX, are expected as well.

Other top shoes expected for the night include Brian McClelland and Derek Cottrell, both of whom ranked among the top five in 2005 ASCS Sooner Region points, along with former ASCS Sooner Region champion J.P. Bailey, 2004 Gulf South Region champion Jerry Bell, Claud Estes, Eric Baldaccini,ohnny Miller and Skip Wilson.

Cowtown Speedway is located just east of Fort Worth off I-20 Exit 442-A, then 1.7 miles southeast on Mansfield Highway, then 1.4 miles southwest on New Hope Road, then east. For more information, contact the track at 817-478-9952 or 817-572-0848.

The 2006 American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region slate consists of 15 events at eight different tracks throughout Oklahoma and northern Texas.

In its 15th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing in the United States, the American Sprint Car Series will present approximately 180 nights of racing in 2006 including the National Tour and its Regional Tours (Gulf South, Mid-South, Midwest, Northern Plains, Patriot Sprint Group, Rocky Mountain, Sooner, Southern and Sprints on Dirt).
