Jennings Conquers Lawton ASCS Run


LAWTON, Okla. — An elated Danny Jennings wired the 25-lap ASCS Sooner Region feature at Lawton Speedway for his first victory of the season aboard the Wesmar powered Goodyear Racing No. 1j Maxim.

The win was Jennings’ first Sooner score at Lawton since 2002, a rather unbelievable stat for ardent race fans who have watched the Norman, Oklahoma pilot sling mud (or dust) on Lawton’s quarter-mile red clay paper clip since the inception of the Sooner region in 2001.

Matt Covington rebounded from heat race woes earlier in the evening to claim an honorable runnerup finish that included the Glenpool racer swapping sensational slide jobs with the leader midway through the 25 lap main event.

Sean McClelland, Michelle Decker and John James filled the top five.

The finish:

Danny Jennings, Matt Covington, Sean McClelland, Michelle Decker, John James, Patrick Stasa, Shane Sellers, Gavin Punch, Kyle Chady, Joe Bob Lee, Brian Roberts, John Ricketts, Martin Edwards, Kerry McAlister, Brandon Jennings, Koby Barksdale, Joe Wood Jr., Nicholas Lucito, Robert Sellers, Jesse Frazier.
