POINTS UPDATE: Bergman Extends Lead Atop Standings with Rush County Win

Stay up to date with the chase for the 2024 American Sprint Car Series National Tour championship.

LATEST RACES: Rush County Speedway (May 31), Dodge City Raceway Park (June 1)

CURRENT POINTS LEADER: It may have been his first night back in his family-owned No. 23 machine and his debut at Rush County Speedway, but neither of those factors stopped Seth Bergman from finding Victory Lane Friday for the second time in three races on the National Tour. While he did not contend for the win on Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park, a sixth-place effort was enough to maintain a 57-point lead over the competition entering ASCS Speedweek next week.

Jason Martin (+2): Martin, out of Liberal, KS, used a pair of races close to home to vault up to second in the standings. A poor qualifying effort Friday at Rush County put Martin behind the eight-ball all night, but he salvaged the race with a 13th-to-sixth drive in the Feature. Then, Martin backed it up with a second-place finish at Dodge City – his first podium finish of the year. He sits 57 points behind Bergman.

Sam Hafertepe Jr. (+6): After a slow start to the 2024 National Tour season, sitting 10th in points with no top fives in two races, Hafertepe regained momentum in Kansas. He finished fifth at Rush County Speedway and then fended off Jason Martin to win at Dodge City Raceway Park – his first National Tour win since the 2023 finale at Devil’s Bowl Speedway. With those runs, he jumped to fourth in points – 76 points behind Bergman.

Matt Covington (+2): Covington found himself back in winning contention at Rush County and Dodge City. He led laps at Rush County and finished second, moving him to second in points. Then, he was up front again at Dodge City, but contact with a slower car took him out of the race. That dropped him to fifth points, but from race weekend to race weekend, he still saw a two-position gain in the standings.

Landon Britt (+3): The Tennessean was on the rise last weekend, finishing eighth at Rush County and then fifth at Dodge City – his third straight top-five at the facility with the National Tour. Britt now sits sixth in the standings heading into Speedweek, which includes a stop at Arrowhead Speedway, the site of his lone National Tour triumph.

Terry Easum (-5): Easum entered the weekend third in the standings on the heels of his first-career National Tour win at Red Dirt, but the No. 88 team never found their stride on either night. A lack of speed in preliminary action had Easum starting 19th at Rush County and 21st at Dodge City and he ended both Features in 17th. With three of the four Speedweek races taking place in his native Oklahoma, Easum will have home-field advantage on his side as he looks to get back into contention for the championship.
