Bryan Hulbert – WAKEENEY, Kan. (July 1, 2023) A lifetime of laps growing up racing at WaKeeney Speedway continues to pay off for Jake Bubak, who, for the second year in a row, rolled into Victory Lane with the American Sprint Car Series presented by RacinDirt.com.

“We definitely made up for last night,” stated Bubak, who suffered a DNF Friday. “I have to thank Patrick so much. He and I are gelling right now, and these engines run unbelievably. Very thankful to him and his family for bringing me out here.”

A $5,000 payday for the Colorado shoe, Bubak raced wheel-to-wheel with Blake Hahn through the opening lap. Able to jump ahead of the DriveWFX.com No. 52, the pair were quick into traffic numerous times. Allowing Hahn to close and look for room to advance on the 360 Civil No. 27b, the cautions would keep bringing the leaders back into clean air, but not without a few close calls.

Able to avoid disaster through the back markers, the final restart on Lap 19 saw Bubak dart away by 0.906-seconds. Blake Hahn in second, was followed by Jason Martin, Oklahoma’s Whit Gastineau fourth was followed by Brandon Anderson.

Going after the No. 55b numerous times, Matt Covington would have to settle for sixth, with Zach Blurton seventh. Jordon Mallett, Jeremy Huish, and Howard Moore completed the top ten.

The 25-car field was topped in Driver’s Project Qualifying by Blake Hahn, who topped his track record of 14.700-seconds with a 14.673-second lap. Three AR Dyno Specialty Heat Races were won by Chris Morgan, Brandon Anderson, and Whit Gastineau.

The next event for the American Sprint Car Series presented by RacinDirt.com is the Steve King Memorial at Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan. on Friday, July 7 ($3,000 to win, $400 to start), and Saturday, July 8 ($5,088 to win, $500 to start).
