Hughes extends his Sooner Late Model victory streak to four at Oklahoma Sports Park
By John Rittenoure, ADA, Oklahoma (August 25, 2019) - Kip Hughes charged from deep in the field to win the Sooner Late Model Series feature Saturday at Oklahoma Sports Park.
It was a fourth straight win for Hughes and is eighth of the season.
The defending champ gridded 11th in the 25-lapper and has to work his way through traffic as Sloppy Hogg set the pace. Hughes made his way to fourth then climbed into second after a lap 13 restart. Hughes put a move on Hogg on lap 15 but a yellow came out forcing Hughes back to second for the restart. Hughes got around Hogg for good after racing resumed and pulled away for the win. Hogg ended up with second and led Jerry Winters, Steve Hawkins and Bobby McGehee across the line.
