Photo by Sara Foster, Story by John Rittenoure - AMARILLO, Texas (May 7, 2022) - It took a little longer to take the lead on Saturday at Route 66 Motor Speedway, but Jamie Burford was not to be denied as he won the Complete Well Testing Sooner Late Model Series vs. Southern Touring late Model Series feature for the second straight night.

Burford led all 30 laps at West Texas Raceway on Friday. Saturday it took 10 laps to drive into the lead. Starting in 6th due to the redraw, Burford worked his way to second as pole sitter Austin Theiss set the pace. On lap 11 Theiss went high and off the backstretch and Burford drove underneath to take the lead.

About Sooner Late Model Series

The Sooner Late Model Series was formed in 2016 by Enid Speedway co-promoter Mark Brill.

Now the series has grown beyond the borders of Oklahoma with events held in the neighboring states of Kansas, Texas and Arkansas as well.
