Rebounding from a shredded tire in his Heat Race to draw the right of the front row Friday night, Wayne Johnson put the Outlaw Wings No. 2c on the point and kept it there for his fourth career win with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products.
Winning the opening night of the 2nd annual Mickey Walker Classic, Johnson’s run to the win was not without challenge as Blake Hahn nearly took the lead on Lap 3 before slipping over the top of the first and second turn.
Pulling his lead to a straightaway through traffic with Steven Shebester chasing, the closing laps saw Hahn rallying back. Moving back to second on Lap 20, Hahn closed a 2.253-second gap down to car lengths as the leaders raced to the white flag. Unable to get the run on Johnson, the No. 2c kept pace by 1.155-seconds at the finish for his 10th career ASCS win at the Oklahoma quarter-mile.
Blake Hahn crossed second, followed by Steven Shebester. Having to drop to the tail after coming to a stop just before the green flag, Brandon Anderson, who had drawn the pole, rocketed through the field to finish fourth with Bradley Fezard moving from ninth to fifth.
Sean McClelland sixth was followed by Alex, Sewell, Kyle Clark, Jeremy Campbell, and Chance Morton to complete the top ten.
The 2nd annual Mickey Walker Classic continues on Saturday, June 4. Gates open at 5:00 P.M. with racing at 7:30 P.M. (CDT). Tickets are $20 for Adults, $5 for Youth (11-14), and free for Kids 10 and under. Pit passes are $35.
