WICHITA FALLS, Texas — Jett Hays took home the trophy for winning Friday’s Sprint Series of Oklahoma Racesaver 305 sprint car event at Monarch Motor Speedway.

Kyle McCutcheon took the lead as the green flag waved and led the first nine laps. Coming out of turn four, Kevin Ramey got underneath McCutcheon to claim the lead on lap 10.

Going into turn one, McCutcheon got into the back of Ramey, resulting in Ramey spinning into the wall. However, McCutcheon ended up hitting the wall and turning his sprint car over in the aftermath.
