Hafertepe Continues Building Momentum With Creek County Victory
Bryan Hulbert – SAPULPA, Okla. (May 25, 2018) Grabbing his third victory of the season, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. continues to gain momentum in the Hills Racing Team No. 15h with his latest triumph coming with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products this past Friday at Creek County Speedway.
Sam’s 14th career win with the ASCS Red River Region, his night started on the right foot with a Heat Race win; putting him in the redraw, where he would come out with the second starting spot. Winning the race into the first two turns, Sam would lead start to finish at the quarter-mile oval, despite challenges from Matt Covington and Wayne Johnson.
“Getting to start at the front helped a bunch. We had a good enough car that I really think we could have started further back and got to the front, but again, just like the Heat, getting the track position like we did, we were just able to pull away,” commented Sam, despite describing the car as being tight as track officials worked the surface prior to the feature.
“The whole night just worked really well for us and we learned a lot of what we set out to learn and made the changes we needed too in order to get the car where we wanted it.”
While the weather will dictate where Sam races this coming weekend, the plan at this point is Lake Ozark Speedway with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.
“We’ve got great sponsors in Missouri who have been with me for a long time, so getting the chance to go race with them, it means a lot. Not only do they support my team, but they’re great friends of mine as well, so I’m looking forward to it.”
