Bryan Hulbert – Springfield, Missouri (October 6, 2012) Drawing the pole for the 25 lap A-Feature at Springfield Raceway, the Kiowa Line Builders No. 28 of Jonathan Cornell was unchallenged in the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior and American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region showdown.
Closing in to battle in the later portions of the night’s Feature event, Brian McClelland saw his chance at a pass nearly end up in the wall as Rafe Essary’s engine expired exiting turn four with the leaders on his back bumper.
With clear race track after that, Cornell would cross the line a straight-a-way ahead of the field.
Brian McClelland held off several attempts by Dustin Morgan to grab second at the line with the Ark Wrecking No. 2 completing the podium. Jumping behind the wheel of the Cooper Racing No. 04 normally piloted by Brad Graham, Nixa, Missouri’s Kyle Bellm stayed in the championship hunt with a fourth place showing with Matt Covington rounding out the top five.
Jamie Passmore grabbed sixth with Cody Baker seventh. Taking the night’s B-Main win, Jonathan Beason marched from seventeenth to eighth with Shane Sellers and Brandon Hahn making up the top ten.
The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region continues their season with the 2012 Season Finale at Valley Speedway on October 19th.
The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region closed out their season with Matt Covington taking the Championship.
