TULSA, OK - The 2015 opening weekend for the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products was in jeopardy after Creek County Speedway in Sapulpa, Okla. was forced to pull their Saturday date due to several bouts of rain and snow keeping crews from readying the facility.
When word came down on Sunday, March 8, Regional Director, Terry Mattox, and Flint Creek Speedway management came together and expanded Flint Creek Speedway's Friday show to a double header in order to assure teams and fans two nights of racing.
One difference from a normal two-day event, Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14 will be stand alone events with no lock-ins from Friday night as both nights offer the same $2,000 to win, $250 to start purse.
Support classes for the weekend will include N.O.W. 600 Micros and Dwarf Cars on Friday. Dwarf Cars will remain on Saturday with Non-Wing Champ Sprints taking the place of the Micros. N.O.W. 600 Micros will pay $300 to win for A-Class and A-Class Non-Wing. Outlaw Micros will pay $400 to win on Friday night. Dwarf Cars will pay $150 to win both nights. Non-Wing Champ Sprints will pay $600 to win on Saturday.
Friday, March 13 at Flint Creek Speedway gets underway at 7:30 P.M. (CT). Prior to races on Saturday, open Hot Laps will be held from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. Pits will be cleared soon after and Hot Laps for Saturday night's events will get underway at 6:30 P.M.
