Three in a Row! Boat Wins Opener at Belleville

Belleville, Kansas………Every once in a while, a team discovers the perfect combination: the right driver, the right car, the right setup and the right track, all at the right time.

Friday night, Chad Boat and the Tucker/Boat Motorsports crew were all in unison as they pulled down a tried and true, war-tested machine from the shelf to win their third consecutive feature at the “Belleville Midget Nationals,” something only Stan Fox had accomplished in the 40-year history of the prestigious event back in 1979 and 1980.

After an up-and-down, inconsistent season leading up to this week’s races, the team made the decision to return to the same Spike chassis that was driven to a sweep by Boat a season ago at Belleville. It’s a car that hadn’t made a single appearance during the 2017 season before Friday night, but now stands an undefeated 3-for-3 on the Belleville High Banks.

Bell Capitalizes to Win His 2nd “Chad McDaniel Memorial” in Beloit

Beloit, Kansas………Rarely do we have the opportunity to accurately measure the accomplishments of racers in the midst of their careers to those who came before them. After all, that’s what record books are for. But, when you join a name such as A.J. Foyt in any record book, it’s certainly something worth mentioning.

Bell did just that Wednesday night in the 8th Annual “Chad McDaniel Memorial” at Solomon Valley Raceway where he recorded his 20th career USAC National Midget feature victory, equaling the number of wins the four-time Indianapolis 500 champ procured with the series in his legendary career.

Yet, after seeing his one-lap track record fall earlier in the night, Bell more than made up from having his name erased from that segment of the record book by leading the final ten laps to join Bryan Clauson as the only two-time winner of the “Chad McDaniel Memorial.”

Thorson Thunders to First USAC Midget Win of 2017 at Jefferson Co.

Fairbury, Nebraska………Patience is a virtue, so they say and, indeed, good things come to those who wait.

Tanner Thorson was the epitome of each proverbial phrase at Jefferson County Speedway’s 2nd Annual Riverside Chevrolet “Tuesday Night Thunder” presented by Westin Packaged Meats and Schmidt’s Sanitation. The reigning series champ out of Minden, Nevada, relentlessly hassled Tyler Thomas for the race lead throughout the first half of the 40-lap main event. On the 25th lap, Thorson made the winning move with a successful turn four slider on Thomas and, from there, never relinquished the point to capture his first USAC National Midget feature victory of 2017.

The 21-year-old hadn’t won in the series since tearing off a three-race win streak in October of 2016 to propel him to his first USAC title. Tuesday night’s victory was the first for Thorson in nearly 10 months. Furthermore, his win in his Keith Kunz-Curb-Agajanian Motorsports/JBL Audio – TRD/Bullet by Spike/Speedway Toyota was the latest in the season a defending USAC National Midget champion has gone before scoring his first win since Jerry Coons, Jr. in 2008.

Patience speaks many languages and Thorson was able to transcribe them into a sweet song during the 40-lap main event, ten laps longer than the norm. As Thomas broke away for the lead, Thorson knew he had the car and the ability as well as the inclination that traffic would most likely come into play, so he waited until the race came to him.

Jefferson County USAC National Midget Recap: August 1, 2017

Fairbury, Nebraska………Tanner Thorson drove to his first USAC National Midget victory of the season in Jefferson County Speedway’s 2nd Annual Riverside Chevrolet “Tuesday Night Thunder” presented by Fairbury-Westin Meats.

Thorson, the reigning series champ out of Minden, Nevada, made repeated challenges for the race lead on Tyler Thomas throughout the first half of the 40-lap main event, but on lap 25, Thorson made the winning move with a successful turn four slider.

From there, he never relinquished the point. Brady Bacon advanced from fourth to second following a final restart with three laps to go to finish in the runner-up spot. Tyler Thomas led 24 laps and came home third ahead Shane Golobic and Christopher Bell.

The USAC National Midget points race tightens up a bit with Brady Bacon moving into second ahead of Shane Golobic who are both knotted up at 319 points, but Bacon holds the tiebreaker with two wins. They both stand just 14 points behind Spencer Bayston who finished sixth Tuesday night.

Bullrings to the High Banks: 4 USAC Midgets Races in 5 Nights Up Next for “Belleville Week”

USAC’s National Midget schedule annually consists of venues that range in size from the bullrings to the half-miles from new events to the established.

This week, the series’ drivers and teams will experience a docket that runs the gamut from the one-fifth-mile Jefferson County Speedway to the quarter-mile Solomon Valley Raceway to the aptly-named half-mile Belleville High Banks.

Chad Boat Undocked; Returns for USAC Midget “Belleville Week” One Month After Lincoln Crash

One month after a frightening accident during the USAC National Midget event at Lincoln (Ill.) Speedway, Chad Boat will make his return behind the wheel for a big week of Midget racing in the nation’s heartland Aug. 1 in Fairbury, Neb., Aug. 2 in Beloit, Kans. and Aug. 4-5 at Belleville, Kans.

It was this week and these same three events last year where Chad Boat broke out for his first three career USAC Midget wins in the span of five nights, which has the Phoenix, Arizona native most eager to return to the track.

“Anytime you’re out of the racecar, it’s never good, even if it’s the offseason,” a hungry Boat said. “When you’re out for other reasons, it’s definitely a bummer, but I think it was in my best interest to take a couple weeks off not only for me to regroup, but for us to regroup as a team.”

Boat is referring to the accident that occurred on the sixth lap of the feature on July 2 at Lincoln where Boat and Brayton Lynch made contact entering turn one. Lynch’s car launched into the fence, snapped one of the fence posts in half and took down a large section of catch-fencing and the safety light with him. Meanwhile, Boat’s car launched over the wall and fencing at Mach-10 speed, flipping nose-to-tail roughly 15 times before landing near a fence a football field-distance away from where the incident began. Fortunately, both drivers walked away from the scene, but Boat wasn’t off completely scot-free.

Courtney Conquers Inaugural Illinois Midget Nationals

Springfield, Illinois……Throughout the 2017 USAC Midget National Championship season, Tyler Courtney has proven himself as the streak-stopper.

After leading each of the previous three races at Kokomo, Ind., Macon, Ill. and Lincoln, Ill. for a total of 32 laps, Courtney had put together a string of three-straight third-place finishes. Though some would accept that as a solid night, the driver known as “Sunshine” felt that was a letdown and immediately sought to end that run of events with a performance he wouldn’t regret.

On Monday night’s Independence Day Eve meet at the Illinois State Fairgrounds Multi-Purpose Arena, Courtney did just that as, for the third time this season, he put an end to another driver’s two-race winning streak. This time, it was the previous two nights’ Macon and Lincoln winner Christopher Bell, who was cast in the role of Courtney’s pursuer instead of the alternative as Courtney captured victory number three on the season in the inaugural Adam Lopez “Illinois Midget Nationals.”

Bell Goes 2 for 2 on Illinois Midget Swing with Lincoln Midget Score

Lincoln, Illinois………It had been three years since a driver had won consecutive USAC Midget National Championship features at two different Illinois tracks.

That driver was Christopher Bell, who captured a pair of victories at Tri-City Speedway (Granite City) and Belle-Clair Speedway (Belleville) during the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

It was a rare case of déjà vu Sunday night in the series’ return to the Logan County Fairgrounds’ Lincoln Speedway for the first time since 1959. Norman, Oklahoma’s Bell staked his claim of Illinois by writing the deed that turned the Land of Lincoln into the Land of Bell for the time being, racing to the front on the same, exact lap (25) as he did the night before in his victory at Macon Speedway to lead the same two drivers, Spencer Bayston and Tyler Courtney, across the line for the second time in as many nights.

Bell Chimes in with Victory in USAC Midgets’ Macon Return

Macon, Illinois………The formula for winning at Macon Speedway seems simple enough on paper. Minimize mistakes, take advantage of the opportunities you’ve been given and throw the occasional slider to get to the front.

However, when seemingly all 23 competitors have the same plan, something has to give on the tight, but captivatingly racey 1/5-mile dirt oval.

Norman, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell seized his opportunity following a lap 20 restart, ultimately making the winning move with six laps remaining past Tyler Courtney to score the win in the USAC Midget National Championship’s return to Macon for the first time in a decade.

California’s Bakersfield Speedway Added to 2017 USAC National Midget Schedule

Bakersfield, California………A new addition to the 2017 USAC National Midget schedule’s end-of-the-year west coast swing has been announced as the penultimate round of this year’s championship.

The November 18th USAC Western States Midget event at California’s Bakersfield Speedway will now carry USAC National Midget points in addition to Western States points. The event will slot in as the final race on the calendar prior to the 77th running of the “Turkey Night Grand Prix” at Ventura (Calif.) Raceway.

USAC National Midget racing has an extensive history at the 1/3-mile dirt oval in Bakersfield, dating to 1959 and the first of three career USAC victories by driver Davey Moses. Since then, the track has hosted 18 USAC National Midget events, including Sleppy Tripp’s first career win in 1974, but none since Jay Drake’s victory in 2000 which, incidentally, took place 17 years ago to the day of this year’s scheduled race.

Illinois USAC Midget Tripleheader Coming this Weekend to Macon-Lincoln-Springfield

After a bustling stretch of June that included 14 USAC National races in a 17-day span, including six-consecutive precipitation-free nights of Indiana Midget Week, teams had a chance to take a deep breath, regroup and prepare for the kickoff to a tantalizing summer stretch that begins this Saturday night with three-straight events in the state of Illinois.

The USAC Midget National Championship crosses the border for an Illinois Midget Weekend featuring events at three different Land of Lincoln tracks in three consecutive nights for the first time in 49 years!  In 1968, Chuck Arnold and Mel Kenyon split feature wins at Fairbury; Henry Pens captured Rockford a night later and Bob Tattersall concluded the weekend with his triumph at Santa Fe.

Illinois is a hotbed of midget racing, but this coming weekend’s venues have been absent from the USAC schedule for at least a decade and, in some cases, forever. The first of the welcomed additions is this Saturday’s return to Macon Speedway for the first time since 2007. Among the notable past visits by the series was Jack Hewitt’s famed, ahem, critique of the night’s proceedings back in 1996, which is fine. But, it’s also featured a number of USAC National champions who’ve been Macon masters: Don Branson (1959), Jimmy Davies (1960), Bob Tattersall (1965), Tony Elliott (1992) and Brad Kuhn (2007).

Bayston the Victor, Golobic the Champ in Indiana Midget Week Finale at Kokomo

Kokomo, Indiana………Spencer Bayston exorcised the demons that had plagued his relationship with lady luck since his first Indiana Midget Week triumph one year ago to capture his second career USAC National Midget victory Sunday night at Kokomo Speedway.

Meanwhile, Shane Golobic – a steady, heady driver who always seems to play a leading role near the front of the field – made a late-race move with three laps remaining to net himself the 2017 Indiana Midget Week title.

Coming into the final night, nine drivers remained mathematically eligible to win the IMW title. The top-five, in fact, were separated by a mere 12 points. However, misfortune seemed to plague more than its fair share of the top contenders early on.

Rico Reigns Supreme in Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Sweep at the Burg

Lawrenceburg, Indiana………When you drive for Keith Kunz, you’re expected to win. No excuses.

Time and time again, the Columbus, Indiana-based team has provided the machinery that has led to 89 career feature victories and eight championships as a USAC Midget National Championship car entrant. However, throughout the series’ first eight events, the venerable team had yet to find victory lane and seemed to be reeling after only one of its five drivers was able to scrape into the top-10 the night prior at Bloomington.

It had been eight years since a Keith Kunz-led team had gone winless this far into the season, but Saturday night at Lawrenceburg Speedway was the night Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports had finally arrived in 2017, and in a big way, as the trio of Rico Abreu, Tanner Thorson, and Holly Shelton duplicated Clauson/Marshall Racing’s feat from the night before by recording a 1-2-3 to sweep of the top-three spots.

After an unforgettable, dare-devilish race-long battle that saw slide-job after slide-job thrown at Shelton by two of her teammates – Abreu and Spencer Bayston – Abreu was finally able to prevail with three laps remaining to earn his 16th career USAC National Midget win and third straight at Lawrenceburg in his Keith Kunz-Curb-Agajanian Motorsports/Walker Filtration – TRD/Bullet by Spike/Speedway Toyota.

Sunshine Rises Again; Courtney Takes 2nd Indiana Midget Week Win in Bloomington CMR Sweep

Bloomington, Indiana………Tyler Courtney entered Indiana Midget Week with a pocket full of sunshine. After two victories in the first four rounds of the six-race series, the driver known as “Sunshine” left Bloomington Speedway Friday night with a pocket full of cash.

Three nights following his first career USAC Midget National Championship points win in the Indiana Midget Week opener at Montpelier Motor Speedway, Indianapolis, Indiana’s Courtney found his way to victory lane once again to lead a Clauson/Marshall Racing sweep of the podium in the fastest 30-lap USAC Midget race ever held Bloomington.

After overcoming a less-than-stellar qualifying time at Putnamville’s Lincoln Park Speedway one night prior with a hard-charging 20th to 3rd feature run, Courtney took care of business in ProSource Qualifying Friday night. After timing in sixth, he was on the outside looking in during his heat, missing a transfer spot and squandering an opportunity to start on the pole for the main event.
