All Sprint Friday Night at Southern Oklahoma Speedway!

Three Different Sprint Series on Tap

Ardmore, Oklahoma – September 12, 2016 - For the final time on the 2016 race season, sprint cars will take to the track at Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore this coming Friday night. And when we say “sprint cars,” we aren’t talking just one class of sprint cars -we are talking three different types of sprints utilizing both wings and non-wings.

The Oil Capital Racing Series (OCRS) will make their first and only appearance of the season at the Southern Oklahoma facility and are led by Mustang’s Robert Sellers. Whit Gastineau, Zach Chappell, Sheldon Barksdale, Cameron Hagin, Johnny Kent, Shayla Waddell, Alex Sewell, Shane Sellers and Casey Wills are just a few of the drivers expected to compete. OCRS utilizes the top wing for stability and downforce and run 360 ci- motors with a two-barrel carburetor.

The Sprint Series of Oklahoma (SSO) IMCA Racesaver Sprint Car Series will make their fourth and final Friday night event at the speedway where Andy Shouse holds down the point lead. Joe Wood, Jr., Brandon Long, Waddell, Chris Kelly, Jake Martens, Jerry Jumper, Cody Whitworth, Sterling Hoff, Loyd Clevenger, Gary Owens, Alison Slaton and Ty Williams are the touring regulars expected.

Not to be out-done and as “Texans” like to do in all forms of dirt track racing in the Red River area, several will be invading the “Sooner State” in hopes of knocking out the SSO regulars and generating IMCA national points. Kevin Ramey leads the group, along with Chase and Cale Parson, Weston Gorham, Chad Wilson, Michelle and Justin Melton.

John Carney, II, Melton and Wilson have picked up victories at previous SSO appearances at SOS.
SSO also utilizes the top wing and run 305-ci sealed crate motors and can compete in such states as Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota to name a few states.
