NEAL ALLISON GOES BACK-TO-BACK AT FLORENCE

Timmonsville, South Carolina (September 21, 2019)………Neal Allison (Greensboro, N.C.) captured his second consecutive USAC Eastern Speed2 Midget victory Saturday night at Florence Motor Speedway in Timmonsville, S.C.

Series point leader Jessica Bean (Farmland, Ind.) jumped to the front to lead the first 10 circuits before Nolan Allison took his turn at the front from laps 11-16.  The back-and-forth battle between the two swung back to Bean’s advantage as she took over the lead nearing the halfway point on the 17th lap.

Her quest for a first victory of 2019 came up six laps short as Neal Allison took control on the 30th lap and drove to victory, his third overall of the season, over Bean, Chris Lamb (Colfax, N.C.), Levi Riffle (Winston Salem, N.C.) and Nolan Allison (Greensboro, N.C.).

Meanwhile, Bean extended her lead in the standings from 25 to 39 over Connor Gross (Asbury, N.J.) with just four races remaining as she pursues a third-straight series title.
