Hafertepe Revs Things Up With ASCS Gulf South At RPM Speedway

Story By: BRYAN HULBERT / ASCS – CRANDALL, TX – Winning for the 12th time with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. picked up his third ASCS sanctioned win in a row with his score at RPM Speedway on Friday night in the Hills Racing Team No. 15h.

Racing from the seventh starting position, Hafertepe rolled to second with the lead in the hands of Terry Gray. Searching the track, the race’s final caution with three laps to go sent Hafertepe to the high line on the No. 10 of Gray to secure the top spot. Working back to the bottom of the Speedway, Hafertepe worked to hit his marks as the high line was wide open for Blake Hahn.

Restarting fourth at the Lap 22 caution, Hahn grabbed the runner-up spot from Terry Gray at the wave of the white flag. Letting the Griffith Truck and Equipment No. 52 sail the cushion through the final two turns, the top two spots were nearly nose to tail at the drop of the checkered flag. Terry Gray ended up third with Channin Tankersley and Ray Allen Kulhanek to complete the top-five.
Sixth went to Matt Covington with 12th starting Dustin Gates racing to seventh. Harli White in eighth was followed by Michael Day with Louisiana’s Koty Adams moving from 18th to finish 10th.

The Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region races again on Saturday, May 26 at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas. Gates open at 6:00 P.M. with racing at 8:00 P.M. Along with the Gulf South Region, the night includes USRA Modifieds, Limited Modifieds, and Factory Stocks. Admission is $20 with Seniors, Military, and kids 13-15 admitted for $10. Children 12 and under get into the grandstands for free. Pit Passes are $30.
