Taking on the Mickey Walker Classic this Friday, June 2, and Saturday, June 3, the National Tour of the American Sprint Car Series will be at the three-eighths-mile Outlaw Motor Speedway in Oktaha, Okla. on Friday, then the quick quarter-mile Caney Valley Speedway on Saturday.
Both nights of racing pay $4,222 to win, $422 to start the A-Feature for the American Sprint Car Series, and will also feature OCRS style Champ/305 Sprint Cars racing for $1,222 to win, $122 to start.
Both late additions to the 2023 lineup, the weekend was originally slated for Creek County Speedway; however, a schedule change at the track caused the Mickey Walker Classic to move. Creek County Speedway will be featured on the ASCS National schedule on Thursday, June 15.
The only time Outlaw Motor Speedway will be open for action in 2023, the track has been kept in racing condition. Only needing some general cleaning to get ready, the Oklahoma Oval, located just south of Muskogee, has seen action four times, with just as many winners since 2003. Five visits to Caney Valley Speedway, the Kansas oval was featured in 1993, then was absent from the schedule until 2020. Canada’s Dylan Westbrook is the only repeat winner at Caney.
Going into the weekend, Seth Bergman continues to lead the points by 21 over Jason Martin, who captured his fourth National Tour win of the season on Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway. Seven events into the season, Seth Bergman has not finished worse than third. Matching podium runs by Gary Wright, Jason Johnson, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. The longest streak of podium finishes belongs to Gary Wight at 12 during the 2005 season.
Friday, June 2, at Outlaw Motor Speedway, opens at 5:00 P.M. with racing at 8:00 P.M. (CDT). Tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for youth (11-14), and free for kids 10 and under. Pits are $40. Outlaw Motor Speedway is located south of Muskogee on Hwy. 69 at 8100 Wainwright Rd. in Oktaha, Okla. The track can be found on Facebook for more information.
