Wood captures first OCRS victory at Southern Oklahoma Speedway


by John Rittenoure - ARDMORE, Okla. (June 26, 2021) - With five top 5 and 9 top 10 finishes coming into Saturday’s AmeriFlex / OCRS IMCA Sprint Car event at Southern Oklahoma Speedway, Danny Wood has been on the verge of getting his first victory.

The wait is over. Wood started on the pole and went the distance to win his first career AmeriFlex / OCRS feature.

While Wood was in firm command of the top spot, there was plenty of driver movement behind him. Joe Bob Lee started 10th but worked his way through the field to second, but was six seconds behind Wood at the finish. Steven Shebester moved from fifth to third while Joe Wood, Jr. came from seventh to fourth. Whit Gastineau finished fifth.

The tail of the field saw lots of changes as Gary Owens came from the last row in the 20-car field to sixth at the finish. Dylan Postier started 18th and finished 7th. Blake Scott finished 8th after starting 17th.

Wood was able to pad his series points lead after moving into the top spot on Friday at Red Dirt Raceway. Wood replaced Casey Wills who had led the points chase all season.
