Another new sprint champ in heavy night of Outlaw racing

(Continued)

MUSKOGEE — Smith would rocket off the low line to take the lead as the pair went screaming down the backstretch. As they went charging into turn three, Easum put a slide job on Smith and took the lead. Smith set his car perfectly for a return slide job in turn four, took the lead back and held on to win by one measly car length.

The win for Smith, which moved him into second place in points, made for the fifth consecutive new winner without a 2013 repeat victor. Easum held on for the runner-up spot with Stephenson, Frazier and Kent making up the top five. Alex Sewell, Brian McClelland, Casey Wills, Kade Morton and  White made up the balance of the top 10.

“I had been changing the apex in the bottom of turns one and two as the car was so tight it was driving me up the wall,” Smith said. “With about five or six to go, I didn't have the room to slide him (Easum), but I did it to see if I could do it later on. It also allowed me to show him my nose in hopes he would see it and put a little pressure on him.”

OCRS moves to Brill Motor Speedway in Meeker on Friday.

Among the weekly division winners were none of the incoming points leaders:  Wesley Taylor of Eufaula in Pure Stock, Kreg Dobson of Muskogee in Factory Stock, David Whittle of Muskogee in Pro Stock, Jacob Magee of Caney, Kan., in Late Models, Tate Cole of Fort Gibson in Modified and Bixby’s Danny Womack in IMCA Modified.
