OSP to host state sprint car race

Tulsa —

It’s time once again for the running of the Oklahoma State Championship sprint car race. This will be the seventh edition of the OSC and as with the past six OSC events, the Oklahoma Sports Park in Ada will play host while the Tulsa Oklahoma based Oil Capital Racing Series functions as the sanctioning body of the event and it all takes place this Saturday night with racing starting at 7:30pm. 

In the past six OSC events, there has been great parity in who becomes the OSC champion. There have been five different winners to take home the coveted acrylic trophy that is presented to the OSC winner. Only Moore Oklahoma’s Whit ‘Gasman’ Gastineau has scored two of those OSC collectors’ trophies. His first was in 2010 with his second coming in last year’s edition of the OSC. The other four drivers to capture the OSC crown are: Mike Goodman (2007), Danny Smith (2008), Andy Shouse (2009) and Gary Owens (2011). 

Speaking of parity, as we have alluded to for the past few weeks now, the OCRS series has seen more winners in 2013 than in any of the prior OCRS seasons. 2013 points leader Harli White scored her seventh A-Feature last weekend at Tri-State Speedway in Pocola Oklahoma. After White’s triumph’s, the parity is very pronounced as there have been 11 different winners in the other 12 races held to date. Therefore, it would be of no surprise whatsoever to see a sixth OSC winner this Saturday night. 

“This race has just evolved into a special event for our series,” commented OCRS president Barry Grabel. “George Welch does a fantastic job with his racetrack and he has been a stout supporter of OCRS. George always has a good crowd when we come to town and our relationship in working together is one of the best in the business and we couldn’t possibly thank George and his staff enough for all they do to accommodate our series.”
