Champion Racing Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Sam Hafertepe Jr. who carried a big momentum into Missouri for his third win in as many races with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series at Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday night.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/28/2019 -- "Hats off to my guys. They did a hell of a job tonight, just like they've been doing all year long. That's three in a row and we're going to keep on going. Lock-in cars or not, we're going to try to get it done tomorrow night," said Hafertepe, who has taken command of the National Tour point standings by 14 markers.
Hafertepe drew the fourth starting spot for the 25-lap affair. Chasing John Carney II and Evan Martin on the first lap, the caution flew working lap two as John Schulz, Alex Hill, and Austin Alumbaugh all came to a rest in the second turn.
Throwing a deep slide in the restart, Hafertepe took the battle three deep off the fourth turn to grab the lead on the second lap.
"It was tough to know where to be," Hafertepe said. "I felt really good on the top in three and four and that's really where I wanted to stay, but I didn't want open the lane with three to go with those guys causing the cautions and reds at the end. It really gets you guessing."
Roger Crockett held on for second with the race for third going three-wide off the final turn with John Carney II taking the spot by 0.166 seconds with a high side pass on Miles Paulus, who was the night's hard charger coming from 17th to fourth, and Evan Martin to complete the top five.
