SAPULPA, Okla. — Picking up his eighth career victory with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products, Seth Bergman parked the Oil Field Equipment and Manufacturing No. 23 at Creek County Speedway on Friday night.

Racing hard with Blake Hahn to open the 25-lap feature, the pair made contact racing for the lead just prior the red flying for Alex Sewell who flipped off the top of the first turn on lap four. Unable to complete the lap out front, Hahn resumed his chase of the No. 23 only to again have the lights switch before he could make the pass official.

On Bergman for the lead at the race’s halfway point, as Berg,am wrestled with nose-wing damage, the red lights came on once more as Mike Goodman and Kyle Clark tangled off the fourth turn.

Restarting with the slower car of Fred Mattox in the mix, Hahn had to deal with the backmarker for several laps, allowing Bergman to pull away for the victory.

Hahn would hold on to second with Sean McClelland grabbing third after a multi-lap battle with Kyle Bellm. Moving up from 12th, Lance Norick completed the top five.

The finish:
