It’s A Hafertepe Sweep In Arizona

SOMERTON, Ariz. – Collecting his second win of the weekend, Sam Hafertepe Jr. made it a sweep of the Keith Bryan Memorial at Cocopah Speedway with the ASCS Southwest Region Saturday night.

Non-stop for 25 laps, Hafertepe took the green from the right of the second row. He ran third during the opening eight rotations, but traffic was in play quickly, with the No. 15h taking second away from J.J. Hickle on lap nine. Chasing the Verville No. 01 driven by Canada’s Skylar Gee, the pair were nearly inseparable as they worked the back of the field.

Finding grip through the middle of the first and second turn on lap 18, Hafertepe proceeded to gap the field by 1.259 seconds. Justin Sanders worked to second on the closing lap, moving Skylar Gee to the third position. J.J. Hickle placed fourth with Robbie Price fifth.

Colton Hardy was sixth, followed by Cam Smith, Logan Forler, Colby Thornhill, and Kelly Miller.

The finish:

1. 15H-Sam Hafertepe Jr[4]; 2. 2X-Justin Sanders[5]; 3. 01-Skylar Gee[1]; 4. 63-JJ Hickle[2]; 5. 39-Robbie Price[10]; 6. 41-Colton Hardy[6]; 7. 17-Cam Smith[7]; 8. 2L-Logan Forler[8]; 9. 19T-Colby Thornhill[3]; 10. 2JR-Kelly Miller[12]; 11. 13-Mark Dobmeier[11]; 12. 2XM-Max Mittry[19]; 13. 47-Charles Davis Jr[13]; 14. 91-Chase Goetz[17]; 15. 19-Wes Wofford[9]; 16. 44-Eric Wilkins[21]; 17. 33S-Lance Sargent[18]; 18. 88-Travis Reber[16]; 19. 18-Lorne Wofford[20]; 20. 2-Alex Pettas[15]; 21. 96S-Brandon Sampson[24]; 22. 14B-Bailey Jean[23]; 23. 75-JT Imperial[14]; 24. 116-Vance Wofford[22]
