Clement is IMCA Modified star in Shootout opener at Ardmore

ARDMORE, Okla. (May 26, 2022) – A driver without a plan going into the opening night All Star Shootout feature for Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds went home with $1,000 after it.  Mitchell Clement took charge following a restart at halfway, then held off a late challenge from William Gould in winning the Thursday night headliner at Southern Oklahoma Speedway. Jacob Pirkle found the fast line coming to the checkers to edge Gould for second-place pay. “I didn’t know what the track was going to do. I didn’t have a plan out there,” Clement admitted after his first feature win of 2022. “I knew the 60 car (Gould) would be coming. He likes it when it’s Baja hammer down like that.” “I was glad we could turn back under him coming out of turn four like that,” added Clement, now eligible to qualify for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. Clement had passed Pirkle for the point 13 laps into the 25-lapper. Gould made his way from 10th starting and closed to a car length, throwing a slider [Read More]

Hahn, Oliva get April 9 victories at Southern Oklahoma

By Ben Deatherage  ARDMORE, Okla. (April 9, 2022) – Southern Oklahoma Speedway had another great installment to its 2022 campaign with Smiley’s Racing Products Southern SportMods and IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars on the Saturday night card.  In the Stock Car main, Blake James got the lead on the opening lap but got high out of turn four, allowing Marcus Hahn to get underneath him and hold down first place on lap one. The Ardmore had Todd Decker on his heels and chomping at the bit to get around him.   The lone stoppage of the main event was on lap nine and allowed Decker to crank up the heat on Hahn for the top spot.  Hahn successfully kept all challengers at bay for the checkers. Larry Bradley ended in second over Decker in third. Ray Allen Hoedebeck started dead last and placed fourth with Ryan Bohnstedt picking up fifth.   Brandon White blitzed out in front of the pack as the Southern SportMods got their feature underway.

ARDMORE, Okla. (March 19, 2022) – Tim Ward went 372 days between his first and second IMCA Modified Southern Stampede feature wins.  He went just 24 hours between his second and third.  Ward completed his weekend sweep at Southern Oklahoma Speedway Saturday night, racing from eighth starting to the $3,000 checkers. He’d won $2,000 from the pole on Friday at Ardmore.  “Weekends like this are everything we go for. We try to win every night,” Ward said. “We had a good car and really good draws both nights. Everything worked out for us.” Ethan Braaksma, 13th starting Jeff Taylor, Matt Bonine and Drake Findley completed the top five. The more than 100 IMCA entries on Night 2 of the Stampede included 49 Modifieds.

(March 18, 2022) –Tim Ward raced his way back to victory lane while Blake Clark won for the first time at Ardmore and Tim Hamilton won for the first time in his IMCA career on opening night of Southern Oklahoma Speedway’s Stampede special.  Ward topped Friday’s $2,000 to win IMCA Modified feature, leading all 25 laps from the pole. The 10th starting Clark collected the $1,000 IMCA Sunoco Stock Car checkers a fraction of a second ahead of Shelby Williams and Hamilton was the $1,000 Smiley’s Racing Products Southern SportMod winner at his home track from sixth starting. Early cautions kept lapped traffic from becoming a factor in the Modified main event and Ward caught up with the back of the field again late in the contest. “Southern Oklahoma really fits my driving style,” said Ward, who’d become a first-time winner in the state at last year’s Stampede. “It gets slick and slippery when it dries out. You’ve got to slow down (for the corners) and be patient in the car.”  “It’s a lot [Read More]
