Opening Night Of The 48th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup Goes To Blake Hahn

Bryan Hulbert – ALGER, Wash. (June 20, 2019) Leading start to finish to open the 48th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Casino/Resort, Oklahoma’s Blake Hahn became the sixth different winner since 2015 in Dirt Cup competition with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

“Thank you to all the fans for coming out tonight. This is one of my favorite races we go to all year and to top the podium on the first night is a good start to the weekend. Dalton had the car dialed in tonight every time we hit the track. Hopefully, we can do this again tomorrow night,” stated Hahn with the night’s trophy in hand.

With the victory, Hahn has taken over the point’s lead with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network by 28 markers over Sam Hafertepe, Jr. with John Carney II moving back to third over Scott Bogucki with Matt Covington following. All five are within 74 points.

Winning the drag race into the first two turns over Jason Solwold, the Sage Fruit, Co. No. 52 worked high at first before moving near the middle groove the Skagit Speedway. With room to breath over the No. 18 of Solwold, the 2015 Dirt Cup Champion came under fire from Matt Covington as the No. 95 worked the hub of the Skagit Speedway.

Finding Hahn in traffic as the race progressed to the ninth lap, Covington took a shot at the race lead through the third and fourth turns. Unable to clear the No. 52, the nose of the No. 95 was all Blake needed to see to adjust his line to the hub of the Skagit Speedway. Patiently through traffic, Hahn controlled the pace of the A-Feature with tire conservation a top priority.

“I felt the tire start to chatter and that’s about when I saw Matt take a shot underneath me. Luckily I had enough momentum to beat him into the next turn, otherwise, I was running second. After that, I just tried to keep the car as straight as possible and not let traffic put me in a bad position.”

Nose to tail through the top five at one point with the leaders trailing the back of the pack, the leaders spread out momentarily as before the caution flew working Lap 24 for Sam Hafertepe, Jr. with a flat tire. The No. 15h was not able to escape the work area before the A-Feature went back to green.

Pulling away on the restart with two laps to go, Hahn opened his advantage to 2.703 seconds at the drop of the checkered flag. Matt Covington in second was joined on the podium by Jason Solwold. Seth Bergman moved up one to finish fourth with John Carney II making his first appearance at the Skagit Speedway with a fifth-place finish from eighth.

Robbie Price in sixth was followed by Travis Jacobson. Justyn Cox from 12th moved up to finish eighth with Scott Bogucki coming out of the night’s second B-Feature before advancing from 18th to ninth to earn the night’s Hard Charger Award. Chris Schmelzle completed the top ten.

A field of 50 was on hand to open the 48th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Casino/Resort. Six SCE Gaskets Heat Races were topped by Jake Helsel, Jason Solwold, Seth Bergman, Harli White, Justin Youngquist, and Reece Goetz. Hoosier Tire Qualifiers went to Alex Hill, Blake Hahn, and Garen Linder. A pair of BMRS B-Features was won by Reece Goetz and Scott Bogucki. The Cook’s Contracting Dump Truck Award went to Alex Hill. No Provisionals were allowed.

The 48th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Casino/Resort continues on Friday, June 21 with gates opening at 5:00 P.M. with racing at 7:00 P.M. (PT). More information on the Skagit Speedway can be found online at http://www.skagitspeedway.com.
