Schroeder & Nunley Repeat At Creek County

SAPULPA, Okla. — Round two of Sooner 600 Week landed at Creek County Speedway on Thursday night with Cole Schroeder and Jett Nunley going back-to-back in A-Class and Restricted, while Frank Flud returned to victory lane in Non-Wing.

Eighty-three entries on hand with the Dirt2Media National Open Wheel 600 Series presented by Hi-Plains Building Division.

Thirty-six of those field into A-Class where Schroeder went on to lead every lap. Stalked at the end by Flud on a green, white, checkered finish, the Montana shoe kept Frank at bay. Garrett Benson, who had slipped to fifth, made it back to third, with Jett Hays and Brant Woods making up the top five.

Losing the engine in his Dirt2Media No. 81 at Caney on Wednesday, Flud was given the controls to Matt Carr’s No. 93.

Putting the wingless machine to the front in heat race qualifying time and win, Frank took the green fourth and wasted no time getting the point on the opening lap; restarts would see the No. 93 steadily pull away, with the gap growing to 3.220-seconds at the finish.

Winner Wednesday night, Austin Torgerson, fought from eighth to second. Out of the B-Feature, Ryan Frandsen wheeled to third, with Austin Saunders fourth.

Getting to the lead on lap nine after chasing Garyn Howard, the No. 33 of Jett Nunley dominated from there in Restricted, winning by 4.083 seconds. Howard crossed a very welcoming second place after destroying a car the night before. Making moves on restarts especially, Mattix McBride moved from ninth to third, with Carson Bolden following from 10th.
