Muskogee, Crawford County open Sooner Late Model Season



by John Rittenoure - TULSA, Okla. (March 21, 2022) - Its finally time to get the 2022 Complete Well Testing Sooner Late Model Series season underway and it begins this weekend with shows at Thunderbird Speedway and Crawford County Speedway.

The season will open Friday, March 25, at Thunderbird Speedway in Muskogee then its on to Crawford County Speedway in Van Buren, Arkansas on Saturday, March 26, for the Battle at the Border with the GRT Legends Late Model Series.

This is the first time we have raced the Arkansas based Legends series and they will join us again when we return to Crawford County on September 24.

Both nights of racing will pay $1,000-to-win and $300-to-start in the A-Feature.

Our lineup up procedures have also changed. In the past we were lining up by inverted point average. We will now draw for heat race starting positions and use a heads up finish to determine the A feature lineup. The top 12 (number could change depending on number of cars signed in) will lock into the A feature with a partial redraw to be determined after sign-in. If no B feature cars from 13 on back will lineup heads up by their heat finish. If a B feature is run then those cars outside of the top 12 would run in the B with the top 8 advancing to the A-feature. These numbers could change some as needed.

Our new lineup procedure will be monitored during the season and is subject to change if series officials feel it is needed.

For the first time the CWT Sooner Late Model Series is now online on MyRacePass.com. Download the MyRacePass app to your cell phone to view lineups and results in real time.
