4.28.18 ASCS Mid South Sprints Results

Bryan Hulbert – HOHENWALD, Tenn. (April 28, 2018) On the road to shake down his car before the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com heads for Pennsylvania, Mark Smith picked up a cool $2,000 at Tennessee National Raceway with the ASCS Mid-South Region on Saturday night.
The debut of the ASCS Mid-South Region at the Tennessee National Raceway, Smith worked through a Heat and Qualifier format to position the Optilumen LED Lighting No. M1 on the pole of the night’s 25-lap feature event. Chased by Blake Hahn, the Griffith Truck and Equipment No. 52 grabbed the lead for a moment in the early laps, but would be shuffled back to second as the caution flew.
Unchallenged from there, Smith clicked off the 25th lap a half straightaway ahead of the field.
Blake Hahn would hold onto to finish second with Johnny Herrera moving to the final podium step after starting sixth. Moving up from 10th, Cody Gardner claimed fourth with Brian Bell scoring the Stealth Recovery Hard Charger of the Night with a run from 15th to fifth.
Harli White crossed sixth with Ernie Ainsworth seventh. Howard Moore, Justin Webb, and Curt Terrell made up the night’s top-ten.
The ASCS Mid-South Region rolls again on Saturday, May 12 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.
