COLCORD, Okla. — The Scott brothers have been competing for as long as they’ve been alive. A little more than 23 years ago, Stormy Scott beat his twin brother, Johnny, to the finish line in the delivery room and did it again Saturday in winning the USMTS Casey’s Cup Series event at West Siloam Speedway.

Several cautions throughout the 40-lap Advanced Energy, Inc. Sooner Nationals main event kept Stormy Scott from running away from the pack, but he never gave up the lead after taking control at the drop of the green flag from the outside of the front row.

His 11th career USMTS win was worth $4,000 to the Las Cruces, N.M., racer — half of which he earned by spending an extra hundred bucks on the “Big Dog Buy-In” prior to the start of the evening’s program.

Meanwhile, Johnny Scott climbed his way up the scorer’s sheets as he drove from ninth on the starting grid to take home the runner-up paycheck after winning one night earlier in Muskogee, Okla.

Zack VanderBeek produced a third-place results while Jeremy Payne battled his way from 18th to fourth and earned the Mesilla Valley Transportation Hard Charger Award. Winner of the last three United States Modified Touring Series shows at his hometown track, Jason Hughes rounded out the top five finishers.

The finish:

Stormy Scott, Johnny Scott, Zack VanderBeek, Jeremy Payne, Jason Hughes, Chris Brown, Kelly Shryock, Eddie Martin, Trevor Hunt, Daniel Hilsabeck, Thomas Tillison Jr., Jason Thoennes, Joey Galloway, Austin Siebert, Gene Nicholas, Joe Duvall, Philip Houston, Preston Guthary, Robert Janes, Masen Big Eagle, Jeremy Ross, Brian Williams, Chris Lewis, Jeff Conner.
