Bryan Hulbert – TULSA, Okla. (December 31, 2022) A stroke of luck is sometimes all it takes, and the caution played to the favor of Gavan Boschele on Saturday night, with the result being his first career Golden Driller in Stock Non-Wing action at the 38th annual Lucas Oil Tulsa Shootout.
Leading the distance until Lap 25 when Jace Park jumped to the top and took over the point in traffic; the caution lights came on as the field worked Lap 28 when third running, Cannon McIntosh suffered a failed power plant under the bonnet of his No. 08c.
Back to Lap 27, and back to the bottom line that he had run the entire feature on the restart, Gavan drove deep into the third turn to let the car drift out and slide Park for the lead. Trying to mount a charge through the final lap, the run was not enough as Boschele took the win by 0.497-seconds.
Jace Park, in second, was chased by Austin Torgerson. Eighth starting, Emerson Axsom, who was among the first to jump to the top raced to a fourth-place finish. Trey Marcham completed the top five. Jaxson Bishop crossed sixth, with Chelby Hinton seventh and Chris Cochran eighth. Gaining 11 positions, Kyle Spence was the hard charger in ninth. Frank Flud from 18th completed the top ten.
The 2023 field of Stock Non-Wing competitors was the largest of the event, numbering 413.
The 39th annual Lucas Oil Tulsa Shootout takes place December 26-31, 2023, atop the Tulsa Expo Raceway, located inside the SageNet Center at Expo Square in Tulsa, Okla. Details on the event will be posted as the dates near.
