Ned Powers Named Winner of ASCS Frontier at Black Hills Speedway

RAPID CITY, S.D. (July 28, 2017) In a race riddled with cautions and red flags, South Dakota’s Ned Powers was eventually declared the winner Friday night at Black Hills Speedway with the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region.

Resulting in a driver needing to be transported for medical attention, a replacement ambulance was not going to be unavailable for over an hour so, for the safety of the drivers, crews, and fans the race was called.

Johnny Herrera Parks it at the Black Hills Speedway

RAPID CITY, S.D. (July 24, 2015) Getting a reprieve from Mother Nature as a light shower, and close proximity lightning, delayed action at the Black Hills Speedway during Lucas Oil ASCS Heat Races, it was New Mexico’s Johnny Herrera who parked the Semi Crazy Truck Wash No. 45x in Victory Lane for the third time in 2015 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Career win No. 13, Johnny’s 200th National Tour start saw the No. 45x taking off from the pole. Stopped after the first round with two drivers collected in the first two turns, Herrera picked up his momentum right where he left off. Finding the back of the field on Lap 8, the battle through the back markers set the stage for Aaron Reutzel to begin running down the MVT No. 45x.

Having to abandon the highline to clear slower cars, Aaron put his B.C. Funds No. 87 on the chip, pulling past the No. 45x to lead the 11th round. Opening his advantage to nearly five seconds at one point, everything looked like another victory for Reutzel, but a caution on Lap 20 put Herrera to the back bumper of the No. 87.
