Day made his way into the runner-up spot on the restart as well and by lap nine, Wood had opened a half-stretch advantage. While Wood was cruising the top side of the three-eighths mile oval, Day and Ramey began battling for second the rest of the distance. Caution flags on lap fourteen and lap fifteen for spins slowed the pace with the last ten laps going green-to-checkered.

  6. Chris Kelly Claims Sprint Series of Oklahoma Season Opener! Ardmore, Oklahoma – March 9, 2018 - Chris Kelly found the bottom before all others and used it to his advantage as he took the lead near the races midway point and never looked back to claim the Sprint Series of Oklahoma IMCA RaceSaver presented by Smiley’s Racing Products/Hoosier Racing Tires Southwest season opener Friday night at Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore with the tracks running of the “Southern Stampede.” Ty Williams and Blake Daccus started on the front row for the twenty-five-lap feature with Owens taking the lead as the green flag fell. Sixth starting Andy Shouse quickly moved into the runner-up position while Daccus, Kevin Ramey and Williams rounded out the top five after the first couple laps. The first and only caution flag of the feature fell on lap four when Elliott Amdahl spun in turns three and four. Once race action resumed, Owens worked the top side of the three-eighths mile oval while Shouse worked the bottom. Shouse pulled even with the leader on lap five heading down the backstretch and would stay low coming out of turn four to take the lead on lap six. Shouse moved up to the top side of the track on lap seven while behind him, Kelly began to make his move. Running fourth on lap ten, the Moore, Oklahoma driver quickly disposed of Daccus for third and moved into the runner-up position past Owens on lap twelve. One lap later, Kelly powered his Bishop Racing Components/Triple X chassis past the former two-time and defending series champion to take the lead just past the races midway point. Not even a heavy dose of lapped traffic on lap seventeen could detour Kelly as he would go on to claim his second career SSO victory by eight car lengths over Shouse. Ramey settled for third while early race leader Owens came home fourth. Daccus rounded out the top five. The four, eight lap heat races for the twenty-seven-car field were won by Shouse, Owens, Daccus and Michael Day while Loyd Clevenger led wire-to-wire the ten-lap “B” feature.
