3RD "SPRINT CAR SMACKDOWN" ON TAP AT KOKOMO

The Stoops Freightliner-Quality Trailer "Sprint Car Smackdown 3" unfolds this week at the Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway as the torrid battle for supremacy in the AMSOIL National Sprint Car series reached a fever pitch.

Dave Darland, chasing one of USAC's most cherished all-time records, enters the three-night extravaganza with a miniscule five-point lead over Brady Bacon, while Bryan Clauson is just 34 points behind the leader. More than 200 points are available at Kokomo.

Darland has 51 career USAC Sprint wins to his credit and needs just one more to match the 52 recorded by Tom Bigelow during his spectacular career. Considering Darland's past performance at his "home" track it's not far-fetched to believe he could tie or surpass the record this week.

The "Smackdown" begins Thursday and continues Friday and Saturday, with 30-lap preliminary features and a 40-lap finale Saturday. In addition to significant lap prize postings totaling some $10,000, numerous performance awards have been posted, making this event a "signature" one for drivers and fans alike.

On Thursday night after the 30-lap feature, several drivers will participate in the inaugural "Snackdown," to determine a winner in a food-consuming competition. More information on that will be released later.

Bryan Clauson won the inaugural "Smackdown" in 2012 and Darland was last year's champion. Preliminaries in 2012 went to Clauson and Chris Windom, while Clauson and Darland won last year's preliminaries.

2014 AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Standings:
1-Dave Darland-1,360, 2-Brady Bacon-1,355, 3-Bryan Clauson-1,326, 4-Jon Stanbrough-1,261, 5-Chase Stockon-1,168, 6-Tracy Hines-1,111, 7-Justin Grant-1,101, 8-Chris Windom-1,092, 9-Hunter Schuerenberg-1,066, 10-C.J. Leary-959.

BELL DOMINATES ANGELL PARK FOR CORNFEST WIN

Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.……
Christopher Bell picked up where he left off at Angell Park Speedway, backing up a weekend sweep in July with the flag-to-flag win in Sunday night’s “CornFest” 30-lapper. It was Bell’s fifth Honda National Midget win of the year in a race that was co-sanctioned by both POWRi and BMARA. It was Bell’s 14th career USAC win, tying him for 45th all-time.

Bell jumped to the lead from the pole as Daniel Robinson held off Bryan Clauson and a host of others early in the race. After two early yellows, heat race winner Chris Windom caught the backstretch wall and took a vicious tumble into turn-three. He was uninjured.

After another yellow on lap ten, Clauson made his move on Robinson and the two made contact, spinning up the track and collecting series point-leader Rico Abreu. All three cars restarted.

The seventh and final stoppage of the feature was for Brady Bacon, who hopped the turn-two cushion and flipped. That set up one final restart for Darren Hagen, who had assumed the runner-up slot, to take a run at Bell. He had nothing for the defending National Midget champion, however, and Bell took a convincing 1.185-second win in the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports – Toyota TRD #71 Bullet/Speedway Toyota.

“It seems like 30 laps takes forever at this place. Running by yourself and seeing those laps on the board, it seems like they click off so slowly. All those yellows and being out front is just agonizing. It’s special to be so good here, especially after having so much trouble here last year. We’ve had a great stretch this season up here at the Prairie,” Bell said.

Hagen held on for second in the Great Clips – Fatheadz Eyewear #56 Beast/Esslinger, his finest showing of the season.

“This is one of the great tracks in the country, so I’m happy just to be back here and definitely to get a good finish. We had our challenges. Both rear tires were losing air and I had some problems with my helmet, along with us spewing water too. We never could get anything together to challenge for the lead, but it was good to come out in front of a good crowd and run second,” Hagen said.

Tyler Thomas was on the move from his tenth starting spot, eventually passing two cars in the final two laps to steal a podium spot in the BT Machine – Triple X Race Company #91T Triple X/Esslinger.

“The open red gave us a chance to make some changes and take a shot at running the bottom. We ran right up through there to fifth before leveling off some. Those two were racing hard for third on the last couple laps and gave us a chance to hit the bottom and get to third. It was really tricky down there. If I could stay right against the tires, it was pretty good down there,” Thomas said.

Fast Qualifier Tracy Hines came home fifth in the Parker Machinery – Turbines, Inc. #24 Spike/Stanton Toyota, and Clauson rebounded from his earlier tangle to round out the top-five in the Fairbury Westin Packaged Meats – Curb Records #63 Spike/Esslinger.

ABREU WINS 37TH "BELLEVILLE MIDGET NATIONALS"

CLAUSON WINS "McDANIEL MEMORIAL," ZAUM TAKES BELLEVILLE PRELIM

Drivers Rico Abreu, Bryan Clauson and Zach Daum captured victories last week in Honda USAC National Midget action, leaving the diminutive Abreu holding a sizeable 111-point lead in the latest series standings entering an August 17 race at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisc.

Abreu stole the major headline Saturday night as he swept to victory in the 37th "Belleville Midget Nationals" championship at the Belleville (Kansas) High Banks.

Abreu and his Toyota TRD Bullet/Speedway Toyota ran down Daum, of Pocahontas, Ill., on lap 14 of the 40-lap finale and proceeded to lead the rest of the way, despite challenges in the closing laps due to a restart. Daum, who had appeared dominant throughout the Belleville event, took the runner-up spot ahead of new track record holder Tracy Hines, defending winner Christopher Bell and Chris Windom.

Hines obliterated the one-lap Belleville record on Thursday night but settled for a fourth-place finish in that night's 25-lap prelim behind Daum, Abreu and Dave Darland, who led the opening seven laps before yielding to Daum, who wheeled the Daum Crop Insurance/Weld Wheels Eagle/Stanton Toyoya. Windom rounded out the "top-five" at the checkered flag. New track records were also established by Michael Pickens in the heat races and Daum in the main event.

Tuesday night's "Chad McDaniel Memorial" at Solomon Valley Raceway in Beloit, Kansas was won by Bryan Clauson of Noblesville, Ind. in the Curb Records Spike/Esslinger. Daum was second ahead of Hines, Bell and Abreu.

Pickens led the first 11 laps at Beloit and Daum the next eight before Clauson took over for good.

RICO GETS IT DONE, WINS HIS FIRST "BELLEVILLE NATIONALS"

Belleville, Kansas.……Rico Abreu made it very clear after his runner-up performance on Friday that he was tired of finishing second in the Saturday finale of the “Belleville Midget Nationals” after ending up there the last two years. The St. Helena, California pilot used a mid-race slider for the lead and was flawless riding the rim of the legendary half-mile for the emotional victory in the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports – Toyota TRD #97 Bullet/Speedway Toyota.

“It’s hard to tell everyone how this one feels. I got pretty emotional in victory lane in that moment. I told myself that I wasn’t running second this year. I realized I wasn’t gaining on him and I was running the same line as him, so it was time to move up a bit higher and got it going up there. It was as far on the fence as it could be, and I almost hung from it a couple times. It was right up my alley, for sure. This is special for me – I’ve wanted to win here since I showed up here,” Abreu said.

Daum, who won Friday’s 25-lap preliminary feature, got the jump from the pole. An caution for Chris Windom, who had been running 8th, slowed the early going. He changed his right-rear tire and rejoined the field.

From there, the race went green, and Daum actually pulled away from Abreu after the restart and through the ten-lap mark. Abreu then got going, cutting big chunks out of Daum’s lead until he caught him at the completion of lap thirteen and fired a long, sweeping slider through turns one and two for the lead.

With the pass made, Abreu continued to trace the outside rail of Belleville, opening up his lead as Daum also enjoyed a comfortable advantage over the battle heating up for third between Tracy Hines and Christopher Bell.

Abreu had a close call in traffic, and then could not complete a slide-job with about fifteen to go, allowing Daum to close in a bit. Daum could not draw close enough to make a move, however, and Abreu carried on.

With nine laps to go, the second and final caution appeared, giving Daum another chance to go after Abreu. The Honda National Midget point leader was again on his game, though, and nailed the restart to gain himself a large advantage. He took his fourth win of the season and eighth win of his young career.

Daum finished a fine week that never saw him worse than second, which is where he finished in the Belleville finale aboard the Daum Crop Insurance – Weld Wheels #5D Eagle/Stanton Toyota.

“You know Rico is gonna go good, especially when the track moves up that high. I knew he’d be coming at that point. He slid me and there was nothing I was gonna do about it. I didn’t know how close second was, so I was making sure I didn’t give anything away at the end. It was obvious there was no catching him without a major mistake or a problem. I’m really happy with our week,” Daum said.

Hines fended off Bell’s last-turn slider for the final podium position in the Parker Machinery – Turbines, Inc. #24 Spike/Stanton Toyota.

“I messed up a little off two on the last lap and knew he was coming, but I just turned back under him and was able to beat him to the line. I think we proved between Zach and myself that our Stanton engines were every bit as strong as the others, and we’re happy with our week. We didn’t blow any up and we kept it up front,” Hines said.

Bell, the defending race winner, came home fourth in the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports – Toyota TRD #97 Bullet/Speedway Toyota, and Windom rebounded all the way to fifth in the RFMS Racing – Liberty Village #3 DRC/Stanton Mopar.

SWANSON SURVIVES FOR BELLEVILLE SILVER CROWN VICTORY

Belleville, Kansas……
.Silver Crown Series point-leader continued his dirt dominance of this season as he took his third win of the season on Friday night in the “Hustle on the High Banks” of Belleville, Kansas. The Kingsburg, California driver rallied from as deep as seventh to steal the win late in the race, running strong to the end as other front-runners experienced problems.

Chris Windom took the lead from outside the front-row as Swanson stumbled on the start after taking the pole for the 50-lapper. He dropped to fourth as Windom and Christopher Bell took off running the high side, and Tracy Hines moved from the third-row to third in the opening laps.

The first caution came on lap seven for Caleb Armstrong, who had an encounter with the turn-two cushion and had major rear-end damage. Windom still led Bell up front, as they opened up a gap over Hines, Jerry Coons, Jr., and Swanson.

The second and final caution came on lap 15 for Jacob Wilson, and this time on the restart, Swanson lost two more spots before regaining his momentum. With Swanson now in 7th, Windom and Bell displayed their strength on an extremely treacherous cushion around the vaunted half-mile, stretching it out to over half a track over third.

Bell fell off Windom’s pace after catching the turn-one guardrail just past halfway, and Windom’s lead appeared to be insurmountable. He toyed with the Belleville guardrail, running a wicked pace on the cushion and opening up his lead even more. With about 15 laps to go, Windom suddenly dropped down on the track for a lap, and after going back to the top a lap later it was apparent that he was slowing. Meanwhile, Swanson was moving back through the field as he stayed up top while others experienced tire problems or damage from banging the guardrail and had to move down.

Windom eventually moved to the bottom with ten to go as the RW Motorsports #17 was running out of fuel, but he held the lead through lap 44 before dropping to the bottom of the backstretch and exiting the race track just as Swanson sprinted by with the lead. He led with five to go and was virtually unchallenged over the final laps, winning by 5.361 seconds in the DePalma Motorsports – Radio Hospital #63 Maxim/Hampshire.

“Sometimes, it’s just your night. When they told me we were in the lead, I honestly didn’t believe it. You just never say die in Silver Crown racing, and especially with this team. We had an engine issue and switched to this one for tonight just to be sure we could finish the race, and we gave up a lot of ground on the restarts. It was hard to believe I was running them down late. I got into the wall pretty hard myself and it wasn’t the same from there. Luckily, the car was good enough to get us there. To win tonight, they said we’d have to run up there, and it feels great to deliver for my team on a track like tonight. I started racing for these guys and promised them I could win pavement races, and two years later I haven’t won a pavement race but we’ve got three dirt wins!” Swanson exclaimed.

Hines found his way by Bell for second but came up short in defending his Belleville Silver Crown victory from last year with the Lightfoot Racing – Hughs Brothers #16 Beast/Chevy.

“Belleville is always a little gnarly anyway, but when run a heavy champ car, it gets your attention. When it was four feet from the wall, it wasn’t a big deal, but when it stopped moving and we were banging the guardrail, that was tough. We paced well early and knew we were catching Bell, but I got into the wall hard and felt like I almost flipped it. I backed off at that point and the 63 went by us – I had nothing for him at that point,” Hines said.

Bell held on for third despite a violently shaking car due to a blistered right-rear tire and heavily packed right-rear wheel on the Fred Gormly – RPM Auto Enterprise #99 JEI/Chevy.

“I followed Darland into one and tagged the guardrail too hard, and it was instant. Going down the back straightaway, I knew we were in trouble. My insides hurt, it was shaking so bad. I honestly almost pulled in, but Rico was spotting for me and told me I had a half-lap behind us. I’m glad he was spotting for me and thankful to get a chance to run this race car. I ran it pretty soft there on the opening lap and Chris drove away from us, so I knew that’s how it was going to be and drove thirty laps or whatever without lifting up there,” Bell said.

Bobby East recovered from changing an engine early in the day to move from 13th to finish fourth in the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing #10 Maxim/Kistler, and Dave Darland rounded out the top-five in the MTR Martco – Longworth Equipment #19 Beast/Toyota.

Zaum dominates on opening night of Belleville Midget Nationals

Belleville, Kansas.……Zach Daum made his first win of the 2014 Honda National Midget season a rout, as he cruised to the win in the opening night of the “Belleville Midget Nationals” on Thursday at the Belleville High Banks. The Pocahontas, Illinois driver started in row-two and tracked down early leader Dave Darland before disappearing to a 6.920-second victory in the flag-to-flag 25-lapper.

“I’ve never felt more comfortable here, from early in the night to even when the track changed and I had to work the bottom more. It takes time to get used to this place. I knew I had to get Dave quickly before he knew I was there, and it took everything I had to hit a perfect corner and get him when we did. I was happy to see it stay caution-free and protect our lead. We know we’re gonna have to be good up high on Saturday, so that’s what we’ll be striving for,” Daum said.

Darland drew the pole after Tanner Thorson experienced engine problems in his heat and was unable to make the call for the feature with a back-up car. Darland opened up his lead as Daum worked underneath Rico Abreu for the second spot.

It didn’t take him long to catch Darland, and he made the move for the lead on lap eight, working to the low side for the point before checking out on the field. The win was Daum’s third of his career aboard the Daum Crop Insurance – Weld Wheels #5D Eagle/Stanton Toyota.

Behind him, Darland was struggling with traffic, allowing Abreu and new track record holder Tracy Hines to close in to make a three-car battle for second. Abreu finally slid past into turn-three to take home the runner-up spot in the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports – Toyota TRD #97 Bullet/Speedway Toyota.

“I was pounding the top and got driven by on the bottom. You definitely needed to be moving around to figure out where it was fast. We got going better at the end. Tonight was another good run for us and a solid points night, but we’re not points racing on Saturday night. I’ve run second the last two years here, and with as good as our car is, I really want to win this,” Abreu said.

Darland held on for the third spot in the CML RW Security – Steele Performance Parts #17 Spike/Fontana.

“Tonight was definitely odd with the rain making the bottom wet and so fast in the feature. I led there for a few and Daum got underneath me. The cushion was fast, but just too far around with the bottom being fast too. I lost momentum taking so long to get by a couple guys, and that cost me the second spot,” Darland said.

Hines backed up his ProSource “Fast Time Award” with a fourth-place finish in the Parker Machinery – Turbines, Inc. #24 Spike/Stanton Toyota, and Chris Windom advanced from tenth to round out the top-five in the RFMS Racing – Liberty Village #3 DRC/Stanton Mopar.

ABREU LEADS MIDGETS TO BELOIT & BELLEVILLE

Rico Abreu of Rutherford, Calif. has been nothing short of spectacular so far in the Honda USAC National Midget Series this year!

Abreu will try to keep his streak of "podium" finishes intact in three events this week in Kansas. The "Chad McDaniel Memorial" is Tuesday night at Solomon Valley Raceway in Beloit, while the "Belleville Midget Nationals" unfolds July 31-August 2, with Midget races Thursday and Saturday. The USAC Silver Crown cars compete at Belleville Friday.

Abreu's record in nine races so far is simply amazing, with three wins, two seconds and three thirds! Last year he was second at Beloit and had a first and a second at Belleville!

Abreu's team, the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian team, swept Belleville in 2013, teammates Christopher Bell and Tanner Thorson taking first and third respectively in the Belleville finale. They all return this year with sights set on a repeat at the North Central Kansas Free Fair's half-mile dirt oval.

Top challengers in the Kansas events are expected to be three-time Belleville champ Jerry Coons Jr., two-time Belleville champ and 2014 Chili Bowl winner Bryan Clauson, two-time Belleville king Dave Darland, Tracy Hines, teammates Chris Windom and New Zealander Michael Pickens, Zach Daum and Andrew Felker.

Abreu enters the Kansas swing with a whopping 96-point lead over Bell, but with over 200 points available in the three races, the standings could change.

2014 Honda USAC National Midget Standings:
1-Rico Abreu-609; 2-Christopher Bell-513; 3-Tracy Hines-494; 4-Bryan Clauson-472; 5-Tanner Thorson-445; 6-Chris Windom-387; 7-Zach Daum-357; 8-Andrew Felker-332; 9-Michael Pickens-323; 10-Kevin Thomas-317.

BELLEVILLE'S 2ND "HUSTLE ON THE HIGH BANKS" FRIDAY;

100TH SILVER CROWN WINNER BYRNE GETS LAST-LAP JD BYRIDER WIN

The second annual "Hustle on the High Banks" is on tap for the USAC Silver Crown Championship Series Friday night at the famed "Belleville High Banks" in Kansas. Tracy Hines is the defending race champion on the half-mile dirt oval which hosts this week's "Belleville Midget Nationals." The Silver Crown cars practice Thursday and race Friday, with a 50-lap main event.

Hines enters the race 39 points behind Kody Swanson after a disappointing finish last Thursday night in the J.D. Byrider "Rich Vogler Classic" at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Ind. Hines was involved in a tangle on lap 17 although his 19th-place finish kept him in the runner-up point slot.

Defending two-time series champion Bobby East now sits third in the standings, just three point behind Hines going into Belleville. East, who was eighth at Indianapolis, is trying to become the first driver to earn three consecutive series titles.

David Byrne of Shullsburg, Wisc. stunned the series with his victory at Indianapolis last Thursday. He passed Ryan Newman for second on lap 91 and caught leader Tanner Swanson (Newman's teammate) on the last lap for the victory. Bryne, driving the Truck Country Shullsburg/Bytec, Inc. Beast/Chevy, became the 100th different winner in the 44-year history of USAC's Silver Crown series.

Fast qualifier Tanner Swanson, who had hoped for a third consecutive Indianapolis victory, ended up second ahead of brother Kody Swanson, Newman and Bobby Santos.

Former USAC Silver Crown champion Ken Schrader started 12th and finished 10th in the 100-lap race.

2014 USAC Silver Crown Standings:

BELOIT, BELLEVILLE GEARING UP FOR USAC RACES

The Sunflower State will reverberate with the sounds of race cars next week as USAC participants head for Kansas for four nights of racing.

It starts with Tuesday night's (July 29) "Chad McDaniel Memorial" Honda USAC National Midget race at Solomon Valley Raceway in Beloit. Two nights later the North Central Kansas Free Fair welcomes USAC to open the 37th Annual "Belleville Midget Nationals." As in 2013, the USAC Silver Crown Championship Cars share the billing with the Honda National Midgets in the three-night extravaganza at the half-mile high banked dirt oval.

Christopher Bell of Norman, Okla. returns to defend both his "Chad McDaniel Memorial" and "Belleville Midget Nationals" Midget titles, while Tracy Hines won last year's inaugural Silver Crown "Hustle on the High Banks" at Belleville.

The Belleville activity starts with Thursday night's opening Midget races, topped by a 25-lap feature. On Friday the Silver Crown cars take over and conclude with a big 50-lap main event. Saturday is "Championship Night" for the Midgets, who will compete in a 40-lap finale.

The Beloit event salutes the memory of the late Kansas driver, Chad McDaniel, who lost his life in a 2009 racing accident at Knoxville, Iowa. Belleville salutes the rich high-banks history which saw the "Midget Nationals" debut in 1978.

Former "Belleville Midget Nationals" champions expected to compete this year are Bell, Jerry Coons Jr. (2005, 2007 and 2012), Bryan Clauson (2009-2010) and Dave Darland (1999 and 2002). Coons will try to become the first driver to win a fourth "Belleville Midget Nationals."

Friday night's racing also includes the Jayhusker "mini-sprints" on the track's smaller oval, while 305 Sprint racing also accompanies Saturday night's events.

KOKOMO'S "SMACKDOWN" NEXT FOR SPRINT CARS

CLAUSON, BALLOU SWEEP ISW CLOSERS; CLAUSON EARNS 2ND STRAIGHT INDIANA SPRINT WEEK TITLE

The AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car championship has tightened after four final Indiana Sprint Week races this past week. Only 34 points separate the top three drivers in the standings going into the August 21-22-23 "Smackdown III" at the Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway.

Dave Darland, still pursuing the all-time record of 52 series wins set by Tom Bigelow, needs one win at Kokomo to tie Bigelow and two to break the record. He has a five-point lead over Brady Bacon in the latest standings, with Bryan Clauson now just 34 back.

Clauson closed the gap with victories Wednesday at the Terre Haute Action Track and Friday at Bloomington Speedway and added a second at Putnamille Thursday before taking fourth in Saturday's finale at Haubstadt, Ind. That gave Clauson and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team their second consecutive Indiana Sprint Week championship. He finished 30 points ahead of Robert Ballou., who captured wins Thursday at Putnamville and Saturday at Haubstadt. Darland ended up third in the final tally.

Ballou, of Rocklin, Calif., led all but seven laps of Saturday's race at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt in his Rossie Feed & Grain/Deaton's Waterfront Services Maxim/Ott. Kyle Cummins led seven laps and took second ahead of Jon Stanbrough, Clauson and Daron Clayton.

Ballou led all 30 laps to win Thursday night's race at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, beating Clauson, Thomas Meseraull, Stanbrough and Darland.

Clauson, of Noblesville, Ind., led the final 14 laps of Wednesday's "Don Smith Classic" at Terre Haute to beat Ballou, Bacon, Chris Windom and Brady Short. Bacon led the first 13 laps and Ballou led three before yielding to Clauson and his Chevy Performance/Curb Beast/Kistler. On Friday, Clauson passed Hunter Schuerenberg six laps from the finish at Bloomington and beat Schuerenberg, Darland, C.J. Leary and Windom to the checkered flag. Darland led the first 10 laps and Schuerenberg led the next 14.

INDIANA SPRINT WEEK OPENS AT GAS CITY, KOKOMO, LAWRENCEBURG

COONS TAKES LINCOLN PARK SPRINT WEEK "TUNEUP"

The 27th "Indiana Sprint Week," one of America's most awaited dirt motorsports extravaganzas, is upon us. The first of seven races in nine nights is scheduled this Friday at the Gas City I-69 Speedway and includes, in addition to the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Cars, the USAC Midwest Dirt HPD Midgets.

"Indiana Sprint Week" continues this Saturday at the Kokomo Speedway and Sunday at the Lawrenceburg Speedway. Subsequent races are Wednesday (July 16) at the Terre Haute Action Track, Thursday (July 17) at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Friday (July 18) at Bloomington Speedway and Saturday (July 19) at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt.

Bryan Clauson is the defending champion of "Indiana Sprint Week" and he resides fourth in the latest AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car points. He was also fourth in last Friday night's "Independence Day" race at Lincoln Park.

Jerry Coons Jr. of Tucson, Ariz. scored his first USAC feature victory on the campaign at Putnamville, passing Clauson on lap 27 and leading the final four laps in his Crume Evans Insurance/RG Enterprises Spike/Chevy. C.J. Leary took second in another podium performance, followed by Shane Cottle, Clauson and Dave Darland. Darland led the opening lap and Coons led all but one of the remaining 29 laps for the win.

Brady Bacon of Broken Arrow, Okla. has a 29-point lead over Darland in the latest series standings. Jon Stanbrough and Clauson round out the "top-four" entering "Indiana Sprint Week,"

Darland will continue to seek the all-time record for USAC National Sprint Car victories in the seven-race ISW swing. He has 50 career wins, compared to all-time leader Tom Bigelow's 52.

2014 AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Standings:
