Day sweeps weekend with a victory at Abilene



By John Rittenoure - ABILENE, Texas (May 30, 2020) - There was no stopping Bo Day in this weekend's Sooner Late Model Series doubleheader season opener. 

The Greenville, Texas driver raced to a convincing victory on Friday at Monarch Motor Speedway and backed it up with another win Saturday at Abilene Speedway. 

The Sooner Late Model Series event was co-sanctioned with the Southern Tour Late Model Series and a field of 30 late models packed the pits at Abilene, but that did not stop Day from posting his second straight win. 

Two-time defending Sooner champion Kip Hughes roared off the pole into the early lead. However, fourth starting Day was on the move and by lap 10 had worked his way around Hughes. Austin Theiss finally passed Hughes to log his second straight runner-up finish leaving Hughes with third. Muskogee racer Hayden Ross finished in fourth and Robbie Starnes rounded out the top five. 

The Sooner Late Model Series travels to Enid Speedway on Saturday, June 6, for the third race of the 2020 season.
