Bryan Hubert – POCOLA, Okla. (October 9, 2021) Earning his second victory of the season with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products, and first with the ASCS Mid-South Region, Roger Crockett was untouchable at the mighty Tri-State Speedway.
Chasing through two attempts at the start, the lead was in the hands of Tim Crawley until contact in traffic on Lap 7 rendered the steering inoperable on the Coke-Zero No. 0. Giving the lead to Crockett, he was chased by Blake Hahn until Lap 9 when mechanical issues sidelined the Sage Fruit Co. No. 52.
Able to fend off the field through several more restarts, Roger was chased through the closing laps by Garet Williamson, but the No. 24 came up 1.451-seconds shy as the checkered flag dropped. Picking up an extra $100 from http://www.oklahomatidbits.com as the night’s Hard Charger, the final podium step when to Brandon Anderson, who worked the hub of the high-banked oval to take third on Lap 20.
Taking a page from the X-Games, Kyle Clark’s fourth-place run was the talk of the night as it nearly ended in a shower of sparks on Lap 14. Crawling the wall down the back straightaway, No. 9$ rode the top of the concrete before launching out of the park, somehow getting the car pointed in the right direction, and shooting back onto the track without bringing out the red or a caution.
Another driver making the bottom of the track work in the final laps, Jeremy Campbell rolled from 12th to fifth.
Alex Sewell was sixth with Michael Day going from 11th to seventh. Rolling forward 11 spots, Fred Mattox made it to eighth with Terry Easum following from 20th to ninth. Dylan Postier made up the top ten.
