SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Sean McClelland was determined to win and it showed in a wheel-to-wheel battle in the closing laps with Dustin Morgan with the ASCS Sooner and Warrior Regions at Springfield Raceway.

Taking the lead after a lap-21 restart that saw Zach Pringle’s machine give up at the green, McClelland stuck low as Dustin Morgan, who restarted fifth, shot to the top side; picking off three drivers to get to second in a single lap.

Side by side for the lead with two revolutions to complete, Morgan worked into McClelland’s line of site at the white flag. Showing the Maxwell Oil No. 1 the line, McClelland moved up the track and slammed the door on the Ark Wrecking No. 93 to secure the victory.

Morgan regrouped to hold on for second with Mike Goodman hustling from eighth to complete the podium. Seth Bergman crossed fourth, after contact with another driver on the start sent the Corridor Electric No. 23 to the tail. Alex Sewell was fifth.

The finish:

Sean McClelland, Dustin Morgan, Mike Goodman, Seth Bergman, Alex Sewell, Matt Ward, Randy Hibbs, Morgan Turpen, J.R. Topper, Terry Gray, Zach Pringle, Harli White, Brad Graham, Kyle Chady, Brian Hatlestad, Jay Russell, Michael Sosebee.
