Champion Racing Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Sam Hafertepe Jr. who picked up his ninth victory of the season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/14/2019 -- Sam's 46th career National Tour victory, the Sunnyvale, Texas driver is now tied with Tim Crawley for fourth in overall wins. "It's been a long time since I've been out of the front straightaway, I don't even remember what it feels like," chuckled Sam who reclaimed the National Tour point's lead by 14 markers.
Hafertepe was able to put his J&J Chassis anywhere he needed too throughout the 30-lap SawBlade.com A-Feature. "This was an awesome Race-car. I don't think there was a better car here all night. We didn't touch it, we just left it alone, and we definitely got the balance back in this thing. It's back to a dominate Race-car and going to Devil's Bowl next week, that's one of my favorite tracks in the world. I can't wait for that."
Taking the lead from the right of the front row, Hafertepe was trailed by Tucker Doughty for the opening lap before Matt Covington shot in second. Opening his lead to nearly two seconds, Hafertepe's advantage dropped quickly as the leaders hit traffic on Lap 7.
Caution working Lap 9 for debris, Covington looked for a way around Hafertepe but with no success. Opening his advantage again, lapped traffic was of little issue for the Heidbreder Foundation No. 15h.
Under caution working Lap 28, slower cars in the mix shook things up behind Hafertepe as Roger Crockett moved by the No. 95 for second.
With clean air to his advantage, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. raced to the finish with a 2.224-second advantage over Crockett's Route 66 Chevrolet No. 11. Battling a shower of power steering fluid over the final few laps that kept the No. 95 off the cushion, Matt Covington managed to hold on for his seventh podium finish of the season.
