Hughes looking for 8th victory at Oklahoma Sports Park
By John Rittenoure - TULSA, Oklahoma (August 21, 2019) - After outdueling AJ Brochu for a thrilling victory at Enid Speedway on August 10, Kip Hughes will be gunning for a fourth straight victory on Saturday when the Sooner Late Model Series visits the Oklahoma Sports Park oval.
Brochu was on the verge of his first Sooner Series victory at Enid when Hughes spoiled the party with one lap to go. Hughes worked his way through traffic and finally caught Brochu in the closing laps. Hughes managed to make the pass and pick up his seventh victory of the season. Brochu held on to second.
Saturday is the first trip of the season to Ada, Oklahoma speedway and it should be a night of high-speed racing. The 4/10 mile oval has long straightaways allowing for plenty of racing room.
Hughes has 13 top-five finishes on the season and leads the points chase in his quest for a second straight championship. Damian Patocka, with one victory on the season, holds down second. Steven Hawkins, Wayne Bush and John Somers round out the top five.
