SAPULPA, Okla. — Holding off repeated attempts by Bryan Clauson for short track glory, Washington’s Seth Bergman came out on top with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products atop the clay of the Creek County Speedway.

 

Surviving several race restarts due to crashes, and early cautions, the Corridor Electric No. 23 of Bergman led all 25 laps for his third overall win of the 2016 season, and fourth overall with the Red River Region.

 

Indianan’s Bryan Clauson crossed second in the Elk Grove Ford No. 17w with Oklahoma’s Blake Hahn completing the night’s podium following several back-to-back slide jobs with Clauson on the final restart. Johnny Herrera was fourth with Sean McClelland coming from 10th to complete the top-five.

 

Howard Moore was sixth with Brandon Hanks coming back from an early crash to seventh. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. raced back to eighth after being the cause of a late race caution with Matt Covington and Kade Morton rounding out the top-ten.
