RAIN FORCES CANCELLATION OF INDIANA MIDGET WEEK GAS CITY OPENER
Heavy rains and resultant wet grounds in northern Indiana have conspired to force cancellation of Wednesday night’s Honda USAC “Indiana Midget Week” opener at Gas City I-69 Speedway. The event included the Honda National Midget and HPD Midwest Midget Series.
Indiana Midget Week continues Thursday night at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, followed by races Friday night at Bloomington Speedway, Saturday at Lawrenceburg Speedway and Sunday at Kokomo Speedway.
In addition to purse monies, participants will be competing for ProSource fast qualifier and B & W Auto Mart hard charger bonuses at each event.
Christopher Bell of Norman, Okla., the defending Honda USAC National Midget Champion, is also the defending champion of Indiana Midget Week. He and Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian teammates Rico Abreu and Tanner Thorson occupy the top-three sports in the current National standings, Abreu leading, Bell second and Thorson third.
