Hughes, Ross decide Sooner Point Championship this weekend in Muskogee
by John Rittenoure - TULSA, Okla. (October 5, 2021) - A tight point battle for the 2021 Complete Well Testing Sooner Late Model Series championship will come to conclusion this weekend during the Okie Fall Brawl at Thunderbird Speedway in Muskogee.
The two-day event begins on Friday and concludes on Saturday. A complete CWT Sooner Late Model show will be run each night with $1,000-to-win on the line for both features.
Three-time defending champion Kip Hughes of Enid and Muskogee’s Hayden Ross have been battling for the points lead all season. Ross gave up the points lead to Hughes on August 15 at Oklahoma Sports Park, but won his first CWT Sooner Late Model feature last Saturday at Enid Speedway to stay within striking distance of Hughes.
Two nights of points will be on the line this weekend and Ross will be trying to build on his momentum at his home track.
Pit gates open at 4 p.m., grandstands at 4. Hot laps will be at 7 followed by racing at 7:30.

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.
