(Lonnie Wheatley photo) John Rittenoure - LAWTON, Okla. (August 19, 2023) - Danny Smith became the 11th different AmeriFlex Hose & Accessories OCRS Sprint Car winner of the season Saturday at Lawton Speedway.

The veteran racer started on the pole and stayed there to win his 13th OCRS career feature over a field that had three past OCRS champions in the top five. 2021 champion Joe Bob Lee gave chase but could not reel in Smith and finished second. 2018 champion Alex Sewell raced into third on lap 13, Joe Wood, Jr. settled for fourth after starting 2nd, and three-time champion Zach Chappell came from 10th starting to finish fifth.

Johnny Kent came away with a slim 14-point lead over Danny Wood with his 7th place finish behind sixth running Rees Moran. Wood finished 10th. Sheldon Barksdale earned the D&G Contruction Hard Charger award for his 8th place finish after winning the B-main and starting 15th. Kayden Cole finished 9th.

Only one race remains before the annual AmeriFlex Challenge on September 30 at Salina Highbanks Speedway. The next event is September 9 at Caney Valley Speedway.
