Bergman Stars At Sapulpa


SAPULPA, Okla. — An off weekend with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real was a profitable one for Seth Bergman as the Washington driver grabbed the American Bank of Oklahoma Sooner Region opener at the Creek County Speedway presented by Ark Wrecking of Oklahoma.

Taking the green fourth, Bergman trailed Jake Martens and Blake Hahn in the early goings until a miscalculation by Hahn opened the door for the runner up spot on the eleventh round. Pursuing the Martens Machine Shop No. 48 into slower traffic on lap 20, Bergman, along with Zach Pringle and Matt Covington made it anyone’s race. Taking the bottom groove on lap 22, the Oilfield Equipment No. 23 squeezed into the lead with Pringle in tow.

On the back bumper of Bergman the remainder of the race, Pringle tried several times for the top spot but was denied as Seth Bergman earned the win. Zach Pringle settled for second with Jake Martens, Matt Covington and 14th starting Joe Wood, Jr. making up the top five.

The finish:

Seth Bergman, Zach Pringle, Jake Martens, Matt Covington, Joe Wood Jr., Mike Goodman, Danny Wood, Andy Shouse, Joe Bob Lee, Jonathan Beason, Whit Gastineau, Blake Hahn, Shane Pace, Layne Himebaugh, Robert Sellers, Kyle Clark, Alex Sewell, Matt Ward, Shane Sellers, Dustin Morgan
