McCarl Collects Arizona ASCS Prize

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. — Central Arizona Raceway presented the third annual Keith Bryan Memorial opening night Friday with winged ASCS sprints as the top division and Sprint Car Hall of Famer Terry McCarl visited victory lane. 

Pure stocks and the combined hobby stocks/bombers completed the night’s action.

The top eight in passing and finishing points redrew for the first four rows of the $2,000-to-win ASCS main. Brekton Crouch and McCarl redrew the front row.

Two yellows and a red delayed a lap being scored. McCarl won the race into turn one on each start and quickly established a several car length lead.

With 10 laps remaining McCarl hit traffic and suddenly Logan Forler and eighth-starting Dominic Scelzi were in a tight group with McCarl. Scelzi took second when Forler made a small bobble in turn four but ran out of laps in chasing McCarl.

McCarl took the win over Scelzi and Forler in a quickly run 25 laps once the race finally started.

Tony Martin led the pure stock main for a dozen laps until mechanical gremlins ended his run. Sixth-starting Steven Ashcraft inherited the lead and collected the win over Marty Hussak and Jake Jurado.

Ashcraft didn’t pass tech nor did Hussak due to illegal transmission and Jurado was named the winner.

Hobby stocks saw Joe Peterson lead half the main before getting tangled with a lapped car putting Zack Tate in the lead.

Tate built a large lead and got the win ahead of Charles McDaniel Sr. and Jason Knueppel.

Saturday pays $4,000 to the ASCS winner with the event broadcast by SPEED SPORT affiliate IMCA.tv.
