ASCS Sooner Region Set for Oklahoma Sports Park on Saturday

TULSA, Okla. (August 29, 2005) -- Action continues for the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region as the series makes its final stop of the season atop the fast, 4/10-mile Oklahoma Sports Park clay oval in Ada, OK, on Saturday night.

Nearing his first ASCS Sooner Region crown, Sean McClelland of Collinsville, OK, enters the event with a 44-point advantage over 2002 Sooner Region king Danny Jennings of Norman, OK. Just two events remain on the 2005 Sooner Region slate following Saturday night's card.

McClelland has amassed his point lead due in part to four feature wins through the series opening 16 events of the season. Jennings sole 2005 Sooner Region victory came at Oklahoma Sports Park on April 23.

While McClelland and Jennings dice for the championship, 19-year-old Cody Branchcomb of Sapulpa, OK, has climbed to third in points, with Tulsa's Brian McClelland up to fourth in his rookie season with the Sooner Region. Kerry McAlister of Mustang, OK, rounds out the current top five.

The balance of the current top ten in ASCS Sooner Region points includes Foster Landon (Collinsville, OK), J.P. Bailey (Fort Worth, TX), Derek Cottrell (Fletcher, OK), 16-year-old Dex Eaton (Owasso, OK) and ageless veteran Earnest Jennings (Norman, OK).

Saturday's racing action at Oklahoma Sports Park is set to go green at 7:30 p.m.

Oklahoma Sports Park is located ten miles northwest of Ada, OK, on Hwy. 3W. For more information, contact the track at 580-332-5535 or 580-332-5383.

The 2005 American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region slate consists of 19 events at eight tracks throughout Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas and Arkansas.

In total, including the O'Reilly ASCS National Tour, the Southern Tour and the Sooner, Gulf South, Rocky Mountain and Midwest Regions, the American Sprint Car Series will sanction more than 100 nights of racing in 2005 at approximately 50 different racetracks throughout at least 16 different states.
