Bryan Hulbert - TEXARKANA, Ark. (October 3, 2023) Looking to add his name to the list of winners at the COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires & Ark-La-Tex Lawn and Landscape for a third time, defending event champion, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. will bring the Hills Racing No. 15h to Texarkana 67 Speedway this weekend.
"It meant a lot to win the last one at I-30 Speedway because of what that track meant to me, so I'm looking forward to this weekend and seeing the event continue at Texarkana. Hopefully, everything goes right, and we'll win the first one there," stated Hafertepe, who also topped the Short Track Nationals in 2020.
