EVENT INFO: Speedweek Next For Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series

Bryan Hulbert - TULSA, Okla. (May 30, 2019) Getting into the meat of the 2019 season, the ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek kicks off Saturday, June 1 with five events in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas taking place through Saturday, June 8.

A make or break week of events for many who chase the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, the points can change dramatically before the teams make the turn towards Skagit Speedway and the $15,000 to win Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup.

Going into this weekend's opener at Route 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo, Texas, 148 Speedweek events have been contested since 1993. Tennessee's Mike Ward topped the first event at Creek County Speedway on June 20, 1993, while Terry Gray went on to win the overall Speedweek title. Fast forward, the 2018 Speedweek was ruled by Terry's Brother In-law, Sammy Swindell.

In all, 24 Speedweeks have been held, with 2010 and 2011 excluded from the count. Gary Wright topped the test of man and machine six times during his tenure. Terry Gray won Speedweek four times with Jason Johnson, Tim Crawley, and Wayne Johnson each grabbing a pair of Speedweek titles. Drivers who have a single Speedweek Championship to their name include Aaron Reutzel, Brad Loyet, Darren Stewart, Jeff Swindell, Kevin Ramey, Sam Hafertepe, Jr., Sammy Swindell, and Shane Stewart.

A tumultuous run already at the top of the tour standings, Thomas Kennedy, Roger Crockett, Matt Covington, Scott Bogucki, and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. have all head the point's lead through the first eight events. Out of the many changes, Roger Crockett has regained the point's lead by 10 over Matt Covington with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. suffering a race-ending crash this past Sunday night pushing the No. 15h back to third by 11 markers. Blake Hahn in fourth is trailed by John Carney II who rebounded through Lake Ozark Speedway with a pair of podium finishes, including his first National Tour score of the season. Scott Bogucki in sixth has Jamie Ball, Harli White, Robbie Price, and Jordon Mallett in two to make up the top ten.
