Sweet Goes For Two With High Limit

PRYOR, Okla. — After waiting 10 races to get his first-career win with Kubota High Limit Racing, Brad Sweet didn’t waste any time at all waiting for his second taste of victory with the series.

“The Big Cat” knocked the first win out of the way on Friday night at Southern Oklahoma Speedway and then came back 24 hours later to do it again, going back-to-back with a win at Salina Highbanks Speedway on Saturday night.

The Kasey Kahne Racing, NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 started from the outside pole with Australian James McFadden leading the field to green in the Roth Motorsports, Mobil 1 No. 83.

McFadden led the opening eight laps before Sweet put the pressure on him with some help from lap traffic. Sweet stole the lead on lap 9, McFadden took it back on lap 10, then they came crashing together on lap 11 during the most dramatic moment of the race.

Battling for the lead, the No. 49 and No. 83 collided in turns three and four sending McFadden flying through the air and over the banking for a tumble. He quickly climbed out of the car under his own power, but had to swallow his first finish outside the top 10 this year as they DNF’ed.

From there, Sweet set the #49 on cruise control until a caution on the final lap set up another green-white-checkered where he was left exposed. Brent Marks was able to throw one last haymaker coming to the white flag, but was unable to clear the #49 as he had to watch him drive off to the checkered flag.

For Marks, the Myerstown Missile ended up 2nd for his second runner-up of the year, as he still continues to chase that first-career win with Kubota High Limit Racing. Like the KKR #49, the Murray-Marks #19 still remains a perfect nine-for-nine in top-10 finishes with the series this year.

Behind them, Rico Abreu was pumped to earn his first podium finish of the year with Kubota High Limit Racing. The St. Helena, CA native brought the #24 home with a P3 finish as he capped off a big points night as he approaches the High Stakes Charter position.

Jacob Allen finished fourth with Tyler Courtney earning another Hard Charger Award, thanks to a huge 20th-to-5th bid that will keep the Clauson-Marshall Racing, NOS Energy Drink #7BC atop the championship standings.
