TULSA, Okla. – The new Sooner Sprint Series returns to action this weekend with a stop at Enid Speedway on Saturday, April 24.
When the third event of the season gets underway, a new dual heat race procedure will be in effect that looks to provide an equal opportunity for for all drivers to earn passing points toward their positions in the A-Feature lineup.
Using a 24 car field as an example, those that drew the highest 12 numbers in the first draw and started in rows three and four will redraw from only the lowest 12 numbers and will start in rows one and two in the next round of heats.
Those that drew the lowest half of the numbers and stared in rows one and two will redraw from the highest half of numbers and start in the other rows. Passing points for the second round of heats will be awarded just as the first round of heats.
Total combined points earned in both sets of heat races will determine the B- and A-Feature lineups, which will be set straight up by how the drivers fared in passing points.
Saturday’s feature at the Garfield County Fairgrounds three-eighths-mile oval will pay $1,000 to win and $200 to start.
Veteran drivers earned victories in the first two Sooner Sprint Series shows.
Danny Smith of Sand Springs won the season opener at Texas’ Monarch Motor Speedway, while Loyd Clevenger topped the field at Oklahoma Sports Park.
