POCOLA, Okla. – Ending his weekend in victory lane, Blake Hahn dominated Saturday’s American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products vs. ASCS Mid-South Region showdown at Oklahoma’s Tri-State Speedway.

Trailing through the first eight revolutions, Hahn assumed the lead from Avery Goodman after Goodman tapped the left rear of Robbie Price while trying to put him a lap down.

The race then went red on lap 10 for Mike Goodman, who walked away from a violent flip through the third turn, before being slowed again on lap 13 after Layne Himebaugh rolled to a stop.

The caution waved for the final time on lap 14, but Hahn did as he’d done on nearly every restart and quickly distanced himself from the field.

The race for second saw Garet Williamson suddenly in the mix after starting his race from 17th, with the Colombia, Mo., shoe battling back and forth with Matt Covington, Roger Crockett, and Randall around the hub of the high-banked oval.

Working a deep cushion at both ends of Tri-State Speedway, Hahn built his advantage to 8.253 seconds at the drop of the checkered flag.

Williamson held on for second, with Randall third. Matt Covington ended up fourth and Harli White completed the top five.

Terry Easum in sixth was followed by Andrew Deal. Making up 10 positions, Fred Mattox crossed eighth with Washington’s Chris Schmelzle advancing to ninth from 16th. Lance Norick completed the top 10.

The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products races next at Lawton Speedway on June 20, while the ASCS Mid-South Region rolls again on June 6 at Riverside Int’l Speedway.
