12th Annual Oklahoma State Championship This Saturday
at Oklahoma Sports Park
Tulsa Okla. (September 11. 2018) - September has arrived and with it comes the annual event at the Oklahoma Sports Park in Ada Oklahoma as the 12th running of the Oklahoma State Championship featuring the AMERI-FLEX / OCRS sprint cars take to the dirt oval.
Tuttle Oklahoma's Shane Sellers is scheduled to defend his OSC title that he conquered last year. The win kept the race a family affair as father Robert (Sellers) won the event in 2016. Shane also scored a win at OSP this past May when he won the 10th Annual Harold Leep Jr. Memorial. Between both Sellers pilots, they have won the last five AMERI-FLEX / OCRS events held at the racetrack.
Zach Chappell, who was last years runner-up to Sellers in the OSC race will attempt to earn his first OSC victory lane trip. Chappell is coming off the most recent win in the series having won over the Labor Day weekend at the Caney Valley Speedway. Chappell is also second in points sitting just 60 markers behind series points leader Alex Sewell who is not just looking for his first OSC win, but his first win of any kind at the track. Previous winners of this event that are expected to be on hand for an attempt at another triumph include Whit Gastineau (a 3-time winner) and Gary Owens.
Race fans will have this final opportunity to see sprint cars blaze their way around the ultra quick oval in 2018 as the last events remaining for the tracks 2018 season do not have sprint cars scheduled.
