Harrison wins third Sooner Late Model feature
By John Rittenoure, ADA, Okla. (August 20, 2017) – Following a third place finish at Southern Oklahoma Speedway on Friday, Mark Harrison dominated Saturday’s Sooner Late Model Series event at Oklahoma Sports Park.
The defending Sooner Series champion started his night off with a victory in the third heat race then battled his way to the front of the 25-lap main event and pulled away to win for the third time this season.
Nate Jantz turned in an impressive run from 14th to second but could not reel in Harrison on the OSP 4/10 mile oval. Kyle Sweeney settled for third while points leader Jay Sale was fourth.
The next SLMS event is September 9 at Enid Speedway.
