Ramey Ready For ASCS Sooner Shootout at Cowtown

TULSA, Okla. (May 24, 2004) - Defending American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region champion Kevin Ramey hopes to parlay a home track advantage into a victory as the competitive series takes to the high-banked quarter-mile Cowtown Speedway clay oval in Kennedale, TX, this Saturday night.

With his shop located just a few short miles from Cowtown Speedway, Ramey is familiar with the route to Cowtown Speedway's victory lane, often taking part in weekly action on idle weekend's for the ASCS Sooner Region.

After posting five triumphs en route to the 2003 series title, Ramey has been shut out of victory lane through the first five events this year. Ramey has managed top-ten finishes in all five features however, and enters Saturday's showdown ranked third in points, just 16 markers behind current point leader Jason Martin.

Oklahoma City's Andy Shouse, who collected his first ASCS triumph in the recent challenge versus the NCRA at Wichita's 81 Speedway, is second in points entering Saturday night, just eight markers ahead of Ramey. Shouse has equaled Ramey by posting top-ten runs in five events contested thus far in 2004.

Other top contenders expected for Saturday night's action include Liberal, KS, shoe Tony Bruce, Jr., coming off a pair of fourth-place runs in Sooner Region competition, Tulsa's Sean McClelland, who has posted four top-ten finishes, and Texas shoes Brian Harvill, Preston Peebles II, Barry McCord and Tina Creswell. Claud Estes will lead a contingent of local guns that will take on the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region regulars.

Saturday night's racing action is set to go green at 7:00 p.m.

Cowtown Speedway is located 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 additional information, contact the track at 817-478-9952 or 817-572-0848.
