Jason Hughes Goes Two-For-Three at Southern Oklahoma Speedway
Races To Pair of Wins and a Runner-Up Finish During the Southern Stampede
Westville, Oklahoma (03/12/19) – Jason Hughes enjoyed a successful weekend of competition during the second annual Southern Stampede at Southern Oklahoma Speedway. He took his Henryetta Ford #12 Murphrey Oil Company/ Red Tail Tackle/ Hughes Chassis Modified to Victory Lane twice and added a runner-up finish during the three-day event.
“Clearly, I would’ve like to have won the big finale, but overall I’m happy with our weekend performances,” Hughes said. “Our car was great all weekend, and it’s always good to win two of three features and finish no worse than second. We’ll take this momentum into battle at the King of America at the end of the month and hopefully win another crown.”
Thursday night found Jason Hughes resuming his 2019 season with a trip to Southern Oklahoma Speedway (Ardmore, Oklahoma), where he was piloting his Red Tail Tackle #12 Hughes Racing Chassis Modified in the second annual Southern Stampede.
Finishing second in his heat race, Hughes locked his spot into the opening night feature. Receiving the pole position, Jason held off the late advances of Ricky Thornton Jr. to capture his first win of the season and a $2,000 payday. Thornton Jr., Chris Elliott, Jared Hoefelman, Anthony Roth completed the Top-5 finishers.
The following night in a field of 49 IMCA Modifieds, Jason posted a second-place finish in his heat race, which positioned him second on the starting grid for the main event. Once again, fending off late-race challenges from Ricky Thornton Jr., Hughes streaked to his second win of the season. He was followed across the finish line by Thornton Jr., Rodney Sanders, Anthony Roth and Jeff Taylor. He claimed a $1,000 payday for his triumph.
Wrapping up the 2nd annual Southern Stampede on Saturday evening, Hughes secured his spot into the $2,000-to-win finale with a heat race victory. Starting third on the grid, Jason jumped one position to finish in the runner-up position behind Ricky Thornton Jr., with Chris Elliott, David Murray, and Tanner Black rounding out the Top-5.

Hughes now turns his focus to the King of America IX presented by Summit Racing Equipment, which will be held March 21-23 at Humboldt Speedway. The United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) sanctioned event culminates with a $12,000-to-win finale. Jason picked up the coveted victory in 2015.
