Devil’s Bowl Winter Nationals on deck for Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series

by Bryan Hulbert

MESQUITE, Texas (October 10, 2022) Gearing up for a turn at one of the nation’s top half-mile-ovals, the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network will take on the Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Friday, October 14, and Saturday, October 15 with the 49th annual Winter Nationals / Lanny and Beverly Edwards Memorial.

Kicking off the final run to the 2022 National Tour Championship, the two-night showdown at the Devil’s Bowl is followed by Fuzzy’s Fall Fling at Creek County Speedway on Friday, October 28, and Saturday, October 29, to settle who walks away with the $50,000 champion’s check.

Going into the Devil’s Bowl Winter Nationals, Blake Hahn continues to lead the 2022 standings with a 101-point lead over Wayne Johnson. A track that has worked well for both drivers over the years, one mistake by either could tip the scales tremendously. While Blake has had consistent runs at the Mesquite oval, the nod on performance goes to Johnson, who has 10 career National Tour wins at the Devil's Bowl, with his most recent coming during the Spring Nationals.

Not out of the realm of possibility should something go down among the top two, that could easily bring Matt Covington, who has also been very successful at the Devil’s Bowl, back into the chase, despite trailing by 173 points.

Chasing Covington is Tim Crawley, who is only 13 points back from the No. 95, and 186 away from Hahn. Completing the top five is Jason Martin, who leads the Brodix Rookie of the Year standings. Brandon Anderson holds sixth in tour standings, followed by Landon Crawley, Landon Britt, Kyler Johnson, and Ryan Bickett to make up the top ten.

Friday, October 14, offers teams $3,000 to win and $300 to start with Saturday, October 15, upped to $4,000 to win. Pits open at Noon each day, with racing at 7:00 P.M. on Friday and 8:00 P.M. (CDT). Tickets each night are $25 for adults, $15 for Seniors (60+), $15 for Military and Youth (13-15), and free for Kids 12 and under. Pit Passes are $35. Devil’s Bowl Speedway is located at 1711 Lawson Rd. in Mesquite, Texas. For tickets and directions, log onto http://www.devilsbowl.com or call (972) 222-2421.
