Alley to Invade ASCS Sooner Region at Creek County Speedway

TULSA, Okla. (October 8, 2003) - Lincoln, Nebraska's Billy Alley will make the trek south this Saturday to take on the stars of the American Sprint Car Series Sooner Region at Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, OK.

While Oklahoma and Texas will square off on the gridiron this Saturday afternoon for the 98th edition of the Red River Rivalry, the true battle for Red River bragging rights is set to take place in Saturday night's ASCS Sooner Region event at Creek County Speedway.  And, to spice things up, Alley is throwing his Nebraska helmet into the mix, as he'll try to take victory honors back to the Cornhusker State.

Current ASCS Sooner Region point leader Kevin Ramey of Ft. Worth leads the Texas contingent that includes Derek Drown (Amarillo), Brian Harvill (Irving) and ASCS Gulf South third-place finisher in points, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. (Sunnyvale).

Ramey has topped five of thirteen ASCS Sooner Region events this season to establish a 108 point lead in the Sooner Region championship points race with just the season finale at Ada's Oklahoma Sports Park on October 26 remaining after this Saturday night's race.

Defending ASCS Sooner Region champion Danny Jennings of Norman leads fellow Oklahoma contenders Stephanie Chappell (Talala), Foster Landon (Collinsville), James Shoun (Oklahoma City), Roy Larkin (Tulsa) and Travis Scott (Washington).

While the Oklahoma and Texas drivers will battle it out in the intense style typical of the ASCS Sooner Region, 20-year-old Nebraska hotshoe Alley will try to play the role of spoiler by taking the winner's purse further north.

Alley, the 2003 Knoxville Raceway 360 Sprint Car champion, recently claimed his first career ASCS victory by darting past Shane Stewart in the final corner to bank a $10,000 paycheck in the inaugural running of the Sedalia (MO) 360 Shootout on September 27.

After kicking off his 2003 season with a third place finish at the ASCS Sooner Region opener on March 22 at Creek County Speedway, Alley has posted top ten finishes in seven of eight ASCS starts.

Approximately 30 cars are expected for Saturday night's event at Creek County Speedway.

Saturday night's racing action is slated to get under way at 7:00 p.m.  Creek County Speedway is located twelve miles southwest of Tulsa, one mile west of I-44 Exit 211 on State Road 66.  For more information, contact the track at 918-247-6675.
