Big crowds greet racing's return


ENID, Okla. — Factory stocks

 Persistence paid off for John Whitley as he claimed the win in the factory stock A

 Pacesetter Andy McElfresh put his ride out front on the start. Two early cautions tightened up the field and put Brad Costello on his bumper.

Costello made a daring inside challenge on the restart to take the point. Whitley joined the mix and the trio raced so close a blanket could have been thrown over them.

 McElfresh spun to a halt in turn two and brought out another yellow. It was a drag race on the restart with Whitley finding the fast line to victory lane.      

 McElfresh marched through the field to seize second, trailed by Costello, Scott Hladik and Branded Spady.

Pure stocks

 Experience paid off for veteran Terry Costello as he put his pure stock in victory lane.

 Levi Bashaw posted second with Robie Nunley, J.J. Estill and Leighton Clift following.

Also noted

Richard Pece ruled mini stocks in the green-all-the-way feature.

Nick Rummell settled for second, followed by Nathan Herndon, Bobby Pece and Dillon Rundall.

Sport modified heat winners were Harrison, Elliott, Bobby McGehee and Bobby D. McGehee.

Kyle Vibbard and McElfresh posted the heat wins in factory stock.

Pure Stock heat winners were Estill and Jason Gerhard.

Hughes captured the heat win in modified with Kruckenberg and Pece picking up the respective wins in street and mini stock.
