Photo by Sara Foster, Story by John Rittenoure - ENID, Okla. (July 9, 2022) - It has been awhile since Kip Hughes has won a Complete Well Testing Sooner Late Model feature at his home track. It was last year to be exact.

Saturday Hughes ended the drought with a victory at Enid Speedway.

Hughes jumped into an early lead and was closely chased by series points leader Hayden Ross. Ross charged from eighth starting position into second and did close some on Hughes in the final laps. However, Ross was not able to mount a challenge and finished second to Hughes who won for the third time this season. Damian Patocka ran third followed by Bobby McGehee, Jr. in fourth and Eric Brill in fifth.

Hughes also won the Matt’s ATV first heat and Dustin Allen dominated the DesignOne Racewear second heat before falling out of the main event.

About Sooner Late Model Series

The Sooner Late Model Series was formed in 2016 by Enid Speedway co-promoter Mark Brill. Brill felt there was not many opportunities for late model competitors to race in Oklahoma and the Sooner Late Model Series was formed. Now the series has grown beyond the borders of Oklahoma with events held in the neighboring states of Kansas, Texas and Arkansas as well.
