Hahn Finally Conquers The Devil’s Bowl With Winter Nationals Prelim Win

By:  Bryan Hulbert

MESQUITE, TX – Denied time and time again at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway, that theme changed Friday night as Oklahoma’s Blake Hahn led start to finish with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network to win Night 1 of the 49th annual Devil’s Bowl Winter Nationals.

The 13th different track that Hahn has scored a National Tour win at, the triumph is also Blake’s first in the “Lone Star State.”

“All I can say is finally. This is a track that has been good for me but tough to get a win at,” stated Hahn. “To get it done, it means a lot, especially the history here with Lanny and Beverly and everything they did with my family. It makes the win special for sure.”

Getting the run on Crockett into the first and second turns, the Lucas Oil Tulsa Shootout No. 52 added distance quickly before the caution flew, working Lap 2. Keeping the No. 11 at bay on the restart, Hahn worked in clean air and, with that, built a comfortable advantage. Into traffic just after the tenth lap, Hahn’s lead all but evaporated on Lap 16 as traffic brought Roger Crockett to the back bumper of the No. 52.




Holding pace by 0.178-seconds, Blake was able to sneak by the slower cars and hold the point. Caution the following, slower cars in the lineup provided a buffer as Hahn took off and ran away by 3.094-seconds.

Roger Crockett, who was challenged on the restart, held on for second, with Matt Covington crossing third. Making up a couple of spots after the late-race restart, Jason Martin raced from 11th to fourth, with Dylan Westbrook in fifth.

Scott Bogucki from ninth crossed sixth, followed by the night’s Hard Charger, Wayne Johnson, who made up 11 spots to finish seventh. Advancing the same from 19th, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. was eighth, with Landon Britt ninth. Chance Morton completed the top ten.

Opening night of the 49th Devil’s Bowl Winter Nationals drew a field of 47 drivers. Overall quick time went to Tim Crawley at 15.390-seconds. Five SCE Gaskets Heat Race wins went to Roger Crockett, Jax Redline, Matt Covington, Scott Bogucki, and Brett Becker. BMRS B-Features went to Chase Randall and Wayne Johnson. Tim and Landon Crawley used provisional starts.

Special thanks to Griffith Truck and Equipment, who added $1,000 to the night’s program. Heat Race and B-Feature winners all received $100, and the A-Feature winner got a $300 bonus.
