WEST SILOAM SPRINGS, Okla. (April 18, 2014) - Seth Bergman picked up his second ASCS Regional victory of the season, this time at the West Siloam Speedway in West Siloam Springs, Okla., and for the second straight year topped the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region's season opening event.
Drawing the pole for the night $2,000 to win event, Bergman rode second to Morgan Turpen, who jumped to the lead from the outside of the front row.
An extended red on Lap 16 gave Bergman the chance to tweak his Oil Field Equipment and Manufacturing No. 23, and was able to roll to the center line of the West Siloam Speedway on the restart to claim the lead.
Morgan Turpen held on for second with Dustin Morgan making a late race charge to third with a last corner pass on Mike Goodman. Terry Gray completed the top five.
Alex DeCamp crossed sixth with Arkansas's Zach Pringle seventh. Kyle Clark advanced to eighth from twelfth followed by Matt Ward, who was the night's hard charger, moving up nine spots to finish ninth. Kyle Chady rounded out the top ten.
