Cherry On Top: Cummins’ $10,000 Fall Nationals Triumph Completes USAC Weekend Sweep

Rich Forman

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media


 

Lawrenceburg, Indiana (October 1, 2022)………On the eve of the Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway Fall Nationals, Kyle Cummins firmly stated that Lawrenceburg is the place where he really wanted to get one.


 

On Saturday night, the Princeton, Ind. native got the one that had eluded him for so long as he slid into the lead on a restart just after the halfway mark and carried onward to a $10,000 top prize in the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship’s final Midwest event of the season.


 

His fourth win of the season was his second of the weekend, sweeping both events over the past two nights at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway and Lawrenceburg in his Rock Steady Racing/Ultimate Predator Boats – Mid-America Safety Solutions/Mach-1/Stanton Chevy.


 

Cummins has now laid claim to dominance at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway and Kokomo in addition to USAC victories at Indiana’s Lincoln Park Speedway, Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway and now Lawrenceburg, which, out of all of them, Cummins admitted meant the most to him for one simple reason – it scares him to death, quote unquote.


 

“For me personally, this is the biggest win of my career,” an unabashed Cummins stated. “Those (other) places don’t intimidate me but going into turn three here does. To win here and win $10,000, it just proves we can win anywhere we go.”


 

Full disclosure – Cummins hasn’t exactly gone winless at Lawrenceburg in his career. He did collect a victory in a local, non-sanctioned show at the track in 2015. However, this was his first with USAC, which elevated him to 14 career series wins, passing Steve Chassey and tying him with Billy Cassella, Lee Kunzman, Chase Stockon and Bruce Walkup for 42nd on the all-time list.


 

Cummins started the 30-lap main from the outside of the front row and immediately engaged in a see-saw battle for the lead with pole sitter Logan Seavey throughout the first pair of laps with Seavey fending off and crossing over Cummins’ relentless assault.


 

About as quickly as it began, the race churned to a halt on the second lap when 13th starting Saban Bibent became sideways in turn two and collected Keith Sheffer II, Tripp Gerrald and J.J. Hughes. Hughes got the worst end of the deal, which sent him flipping over. He, Bibent and first-time USAC starter Gerrald were all unable to restart. Sheffer managed to restart and finish 16th.


 

Seavey stretched his lead out in the immediacy of the lap three restart to boast a half-straight advantage over Cummins as both rode the path of the treacherous high line at the head of the field.


 

Back behind Seavey, the battle raged on for second between Cummins and Grant. Grant slid past in turn three on lap 15, but Cummins countered the move and retook the spot. Grant tried to throw one in turns one and two a half-lap later to no avail, allowing Cummins to pull away from Seavey, yet remained a full two seconds behind leader Seavey.


 

A yellow flag on lap 17 came about when sixth running C.J. Leary slowed with a flat right rear tire, relegating him to the Indy Metal Finishing Work Area for fresh rubber where he returned to finish 12th.


 

Insanity ensued on the resumption as Cummins stumbled atop the turn cushion, allowing Grant to drive under Cummins for the second position. That, in turn, caused a chain reaction which forced fourth-running Meseraull to check up behind Cummins. Behind those two, Anton Hernandez (5th) and Mitchel Moles (6th) ruffled each other’s feathers, sending Hernandez sideways as he dropped like an anchor and subsequently lost eight positions.


 

However, 12th place Max Adams’ misfortune was a massive break for both Cummins and Hernandez after Adams spun into the infield and stopped in turn three to bring out the yellow. Due to the incident, the running order reverted to the last completed lap, sending Cummins’ back to second and Hernandez to sixth for the next restart.


 

Survive, advance, overcome and conquer. That was the name of the game for Cummins as he wrestled his mind on how to navigate each end of a tricky Lawrenceburg Speedway.


 

“I could run one and two all day long around the top but, getting into three, I don’t know what it is but I’m just not good,” Cummins admitted. “I’m uncomfortable, I was hitting the fence and I was trying a couple different lines. Seavey and Grant are the best, they can just bust it in there; they’re fearless up there. I started slowing down getting into three just a little bit more but stayed a little higher and it seemed to work out.”


 

Those were the two main culprits Cummins faced in his venture while sandwiched in second between leader Seavey and third-running Grant as they confronted yet another lap 17 restart. This one proved to be a charm for Cummins as he flicked the wheel and took the low line to slide up in front of Seavey and take over possession of the race lead.


 

“When Justin (Grant) got around me, that lit a fire into me a little bit,” Cummins noted. “I tried to turn up and got stuck on the cushion a little bit. I’m glad we had that yellow and came back, but Logan didn’t get as good of a start. At that point, I knew that was it.”


 

The ride up front nearly became short-lived for Cummins as he drifted over the turn two cushion on lap 21. That allowed Seavey to gain on him and use the momentum to drift past Cummins in turn three to briefly take ownership of the number one spot before Cummins pitched his car sideways and drove down the turn four banking to retake the lead.


 

From that point forward, Cummins spurted away from Seavey, but had loads of traffic to handle. Cummins successfully completed a daring slide job of Jadon Rogers in turns one and two with two to go that saw Cummins’ lead sliced by a full second, down to just a tick over a half second.


 

But that’s all the space Cummins needed as he finished off yet another remarkable performance, winning by a 0.797 second margin over Seavey, Grant and hard charger Mitchel Moles (10th to 4th) with Brady Bacon rounding out the top-five. Bacon now leads the Bubby Jones Master of Going Faster Series Presented By Spire Sports + Entertainment standings by 19 markers entering the 10th and final race of the mini-series on November 5 at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.


 

Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.) led a race-high 16 laps before going on to finish second in his Dwight Cheney/Racing Optics – Steel-Co USA – Barnes Systems/DRC/Claxton Chevy, his best career performance in his third Fall Nationals start. Seavey came oh-so-close again to grabbing the first USAC National Sprint Car feature win for car owner Cheney.  Together, they also finished as the runner-up two weeks ago at Indianapolis, Indiana’s Circle City Raceway.


 

“I felt good the first time I went to the top on that first restart; I got a good launch,” Seavey recalled. “The second time, I took off more in the slick and I got spinning a little bit. I had two options. Either protect and let him get a big run down the back stretch and slide me in three or try to get going and get my momentum up as quickly as possible. Obviously, I made the wrong decision. It would’ve been better to protect myself in one and two and let him slide me in three and four. There was so much moisture in the middle, he just went right back by me. I made the wrong decision on that restart and gave it to him.”


 

The universe was nearly in order for Seavey as he looked to return to USAC National Sprint Car victory lane for the first time since June’s Eastern Storm championship run, but it was not to be for the 2021 USAC Indiana Sprint Week Lawrenceburg victor.


 

“We were both pounding the fence there in three and four, which was about as intimidating as I’ve ever seen it here,” Seavey continued. “You get in there and you slide until you hit the wall and hold on from there. I thought all the stars were aligning for us to finally get a win tonight, but we just didn’t quite get there. Just a little mistake on the restart is all it takes here when you’re racing against really good guys.”


 

Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) made it seven career top-five finishes at the Fall Nationals, but it was his first since 2019 in the seat of his TOPP Motorsports/NOS Energy Drink – MPV Express – TOPP Industries/Maxim/Kistler Chevy. In the process, Grant gained seven points on Bacon toward the USAC Sprint Car National Championship, which now has him up by 78 points with five races remaining.


 

“That darn yellow there at the end,” Grant lamented. “I got Kyle on the restart there, then he did the same thing to Seavey. I couldn’t even keep track of what was going on; it was a handful. You could blow through the cushion, and it could trip you up. We were running around there at a pretty high rate of speed, trying to hang on and keep the thing out of the fence. It was a lot of fun and I felt like we had a really good racecar, but we caught the yellow wrong there and then just got in the scrum on the restart and had to fend that off. By then, Kyle was off and running.”


 

C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.), meanwhile, set quick time during Fatheadz Eyewear Qualifying with a lap at 13.926 seconds. That was the 38th fast qualifying time of his USAC National Sprint Car career, which moved him past 1968-70-75 series champion Larry Dickson and into sole possession of sixth all-time. Furthermore, it was Leary’s series-leading ninth fast time of the season with the series, which is the most in a single season since C.J. himself recorded 11 in 2019.

Let’s Just Win: Cummins Repeats with USAC Sprints at Kokomo

David Nearpass

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media


 

Kokomo, Indiana (September 30, 2022)………”Here at Kokomo, it doesn’t feel easy, but it seems like the car is just on kill.”


 

The same could be said for both man and machine of late on the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship tour, but especially at Indiana’s Kokomo Speedway for Kyle Cummins and his Rock Steady Racing/Ultimate Predator Boats - Mid-America Safety Solutions/Mach-1/Stanton Chevy.


 

In Friday night’s Let’s Just Race Presented By Schroeder Products, the Princeton, Ind. driver displayed his prowess of Kokomo’s 1/4-mile dirt oval, racing into the lead at the halfway point despite initially feeling he didn’t quite have enough mustard to defeat Jake Swanson.


 

“I kept telling (the crew) I was too tight, too tight,” Cummins revealed. “Plus, the track was way slicker than I thought. On the first couple laps, I was just holding on. I probably just didn’t drive hard enough to really get the car running.”


 

However, a lap 10 red flag changed Cummins’ portrait to landscape even though, at first, he wasn’t as confident as he would’ve liked, but that outlook turned on a dime as soon as the green flag came back out.


 

“I thought, on that red, that Jake’s got this,” Cummins admitted. “It was going to be hard to pass him. (His crew) came down and told him to watch the top. So, I knew if he went to the top, we were not going to have anything for him. It was good to take a moment just to think about what was going on, where I was going to have to pass him and how my car was going to be. I just made a couple shock adjustments, and I didn’t touch it from there on out.”


 

When all was said and done after he cleared Swanson for good, Cummins was a feature winner for the third time during the 2022 USAC National Sprint Car season and for the 13th time in his career, moving him past Eric Gordon and into a tie for 46th on the all-time win list alongside Steve Chassey.


 

Earlier this month, Cummins wrapped up the Kokomo Speedway track championship and has been on a tear on the USAC trail. He’s finished inside the top-five in nine of his last 10 USAC National Sprint Car feature starts, including 13 of 18 in overall totality throughout 2022.


 

Furthermore, Cummins became the first driver to record five top-five USAC National Sprint Car feature finishes in a single season at Kokomo Speedway following a 1st, 2nd, 2nd and 4th at the track already this year.


 

Rewarded with the pole starting position for the 30-lap feature, it seemed as if it was Cummins’ race to lose at that point. However, outside front row starter Stockon showed some fierce moxie to grab the initial lead. By lap three, Cummins found himself relegated back to the third spot as Swanson worked his way around in turns three and four to slot in behind leader Stockon.


 

Following three laps of near dead heats at the stripe, Swanson finally slashed his way underneath Stockon and into the race lead on lap six.


 

Trouble befell National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Dave Darland on the 10th lap when he became a victim of circumstance after Harley Burns (20th) slipped sideways at the exit of turn four, collecting the 21st running Darland who was sent forth on a spectacular end-over-end flip down the front straightway, which he promptly walked away from under his own power.


 

Like a little wind-up toy, Cummins got keyed up on the ensuing restart, initially fending off Emerson Axsom – celebrating his 18th birthday on this night – to his inside all while ripping the top to stay directly in touch with the leaders. On the 13th lap, Cummins’ second wind began to breathe new life into him as he slide jobbed Stockon in turn three for the second position.


 

Cummins tracked down Swanson instantaneously and, by lap 15, had surpassed him with a slider in turns one and two. However, Swanson kept his foot in it and escaped around the outside. One lap later, Cummins reloaded and refired once more, ultimately clearing Swanson. Nonetheless, Swanson crossed over, then attempted to return the favor to Cummins in turn three, but swung wide at the exit of turn four, allowing Cummins to race back by and wave goodbye, for the most part.


 

With seemingly all in hand and victory within his grasp, Cummins’ 1.1 second lead and road to victory came to an abrupt halt on the final lap when the yellow flag was displayed for a turn four tangle involving C.J. Leary and Anton Hernandez who were tussling for the ninth spot. However, the two locked wheels, and Hernandez received the short end of the stick as he spun backwards down the front straightaway. Hernandez restarted but managed just a 15th place result.


 

Riding the rim on the green-white-checkered restart, Cummins went scot-free into the horizon over the final two laps, pushing forth to a 0.633 second advantage at the checkered flag over Swanson, Stockon, Axsom and Fatheadz Fast Qualifier Mitchel Moles.


 

Cummins’ performance couldn’t be matched on this evening at Kokomo, and neither was his machinery, which has no comparisons on the track and in the pit area, and is a different animal in contrast to all the equipment that he went toe-to-toe with.


 

“This is a Mach-1 Chassis,” Cummins explained. “No one else has a Mach-1 Chassis. I’m glad they’re not buying them. It isn’t good on sales for constructor Mark (Smith), but this thing is just killer. I’ve never been in a racecar that’s like this one. It’s just unbelievable.”


 

Swanson (Anaheim, Calif.) led nine laps and tied his best career Kokomo Speedway USAC National Sprint Car finish of second in his Team AZ Racing/Stratis Construction - Lucas Oil - RSS Industries/DRC/Claxton Chevy. His runner-up result was nearly uncanny to his Kokomo performance on August 26 where he also scored a second after leading 10 laps. In the end, he came up just one spot short again of garnering a first Kokomo USAC victory.


 

“Once you’re in the lead, you’re kind of a sitting duck,” Swanson pointed out. “I feel like I lost the race here at Smackdown that way. The bottom wore out and, maybe if I had more laps, I would’ve known to move up. I tried to make sure I knew when to move up by watching both lines and seeing when the top was coming in. I felt the bottom starting to fade a little bit and the top was getting cleaned off. I jumped up there, but it was no match for the 3R car. He’s really good here. To run second to him is cool and, obviously, we want to beat him and we’re not going to stop until we do.”


 

September in Kokomo is a time to remember for Stockon (Fort Branch, Ind.). He finished third in the main event aboard his KO Motorsports/Banded Ag - Dewig Meats - AMSOIL - Superior Tank & Trailer/Flea RC/Fisher Chevy, which marked his best USAC National Sprint Car result at Kokomo since the most recent previous series race held at the track during the month of September. That came about in 2020 where he also ran third.


 

“It’s been awhile since we’ve put together some good runs with USAC,” Stockon exhaled. “It seems like every time we do, we have something go wrong. The car was pretty maneuverable, but we just had a few things we should’ve changed to make the car a little bit better. With that said, we were able to search around a little bit there and try to hunt those two down. Kyle and Jake had really fast racecars tonight and we’re very fortunate to run third to them.”


 

Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) flipped during his heat race, which, consequently, had its ill effects on the remainder of his night at the track. The incident resulted in a stuck lifter in his car’s engine, which forced the team to watch from the sidelines. Thomas had won with USAC at Kokomo as recently as this past August.

Last Dance in The Midwest: $10,000-To-Win For USAC Sprints Saturday at The Burg

Chris Pedersen

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media


 

Lawrenceburg, Indiana (September 29, 2022)………Kevin Thomas Jr. knew what was coming on the final lap of last year’s running of the Fall Nationals at Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway.


 

On the fly, he had to conjure up a plan on whether to fight the inevitable slide job on the final lap or just let it happen and prepare himself with a counter measure in response   After missing his mark in turn one on the 30th and last lap of the $10,000-to-win main event, those exact thoughts raced through his mind.


 

Although he hadn’t felt any pressure up to that point, from there, he knew his best option was to let him go, then hit the ridge in the middle of three and four and cross him over. And that’s just what KTJ did as he raced under the checkered flag to become the first three-time winner of the Fall Nationals.


 

This Saturday night, October 1, at “The Burg,” he’ll try to cash in the $10,000 check by putting number four on the board after previously winning the race in 2017-19-21.


 

The Cullman, Ala. racer owns five career USAC National Sprint Car feature wins at Lawrenceburg dating back to 2013, which ranks tied for second all-time with Jon Stanbrough.  Dave Darland has won the most often with seven.


 

However, in that 2021 race, for the longest time, it appeared outside front row starter Emerson Axsom had the upper hand as he led the first 26 laps of the feature until exiting the fourth turn on lap 26. That’s when Axsom’s right rear tire suddenly gave away, forcing him to a complete stop in a heartbreaking moment that denied him, at the time, his first career series victory. The series leading Rookie in points looks to return to USAC victory lane for the first time since February in Ocala, Fla.


 

Championship point leader Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) was triumphant in the 2018 Fall Nationals where he led the first lap and the final 18 after being mired in a spirited duel with Bacon. Four of Grant’s USAC National Sprint wins have come at Lawrenceburg, including the first of his career back in 2012. He has six career top-five finishes at the Fall Nationals, including a 5th in 2013, a 4th in 2014, a 5th in 2016, a 3rd in 2017, a 1st in 2018 and a 3rd in 2019.


 

Dueling with Grant for the series title entering the weekend is 2020 Fall Nationals victor Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) who finds himself 80 points behind in second. The four-time champ owns three USAC scores at Lawrenceburg, with additional victory lane visits coming in the summer of 2015 and the spring of 2021. At the Fall Nationals, Bacon has been the fastest qualifier in 2011 and has finished in the top-four five times over the years, including 2nd in 2014 and 2017 as well as 4th in 2015 and 2021.


 

Two-time Fall Nationals winner Robert Ballou (Rocklin, Calif.) won the first two editions of the event under Midwest Sprint Car Series sanction in 2007 and 2008, the first one coming on the former 1/4-mile and the latter coming on the 3/8-mile version. Ballou has been a Lawrenceburg USAC Sprint winner once before in his career, scoring the “W” during 2011 Indiana Sprint Week. At the Fall Nationals, the 2015 series champion has also finished 4th in 2017 and 5th in 2020.


 

The very first of Chase Stockon’s 13 career USAC National Sprint Car victories came at the Fall Nationals in 2012. He’s started all 12 Fall Nationals under USAC sanction since 2009. The Fort Branch, Ind. native also finished as the runner-up in the Fall Nationals during the 2013 race. He took 9th in 2021 and 10th at the event in 2019.


 

Fall Nationals winner Thomas Meseraull (San Jose, Calif.) made his first start in the event with a solid 6th place result back in 2012. His next came in 2015 when he took over the lead on lap two and dominated the rest of the distance in what was his second career USAC National Sprint Car victory at the time.


 

C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) has raced to a pair of Lawrenceburg USAC Sprint Car victories during the Indiana Sprint Week round in both 2017 and 2019. The 2019 USAC National Sprint Car champion also won the 2013 Lawrenceburg Speedway track championship and has finished in the top-three twice at the Fall Nationals in his career. He was 3rd in 2015 and 2nd in 2017. He was 4th in each of the last two years in 2019 and 2020. In both 2015 and 2018, he was the fastest qualifier at the Fall Nationals.


 

Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.) has been the winner of a USAC National Sprint Car feature at Lawrenceburg, scoring a decisive victory during the 2021 Indiana Sprint Week round. Back in June of 2021, Seavey swept both ends of the night, taking wins in both the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget portion and the ensuing Lawrenceburg Sprint car feature. The 2018 USAC National Midget champ experienced his best Fall Nationals performance yet in 2021, finishing 7th.


 

Jake Swanson (Anaheim, Calif.) was the fastest qualifier and a 9th place finisher in his Fall Nationals debut in 2020. In 2021, the USAC National Most Improved Driver upped his game once more by traveling from 10th to finish 5th. 


 

Shane Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) took 7th in the Fall Nationals of 2012. His ride for the Fall Nationals, the Hodges Motorsports No. 74x, won the event with Josh Hodges as the driver during the 2016 season. In fact, the Hodges car has finished in the top-10 at the Fall Nationals on three occasions: 1st in 2016, 8th in 2017 and 10th in 2018. The 2016 run still stands as the fastest 30-lap USAC Sprint Car race in the history of Lawrenceburg Speedway at 7:21.09.


 

Kyle Cummins (Princeton, Ind.) owns three career top-six results in his Fall Nationals career, led by a 4th in 2016, followed by a 5th in 2009 and a 6th most recently in 2020. He’s finished eight of his last nine USAC National Sprint Car feature starts inside the top-five.


 

Max Adams (Loomis, Calif.) made the most recent Fall Nationals run his best with an 8th in 2021. Among the Fall Nationals veterans joining him in the field include 2020 USAC National Most Improved Driver, Terre Haute, Indiana’s Brandon Mattox (12th in 2021), Cincinnati, Ohio’s Saban Bibent (14th in 2021), recent first-time USAC winner Worthington, Indiana’s Jadon Rogers (15th in 2021), plus one-time USAC winner, Pleasant Hill, Ohio’s Matt Westfall (15th in 2018) and two-time USAC National Sprint Car winner, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma’s Jason McDougal (17th in 2018).


 

Impressive USAC Rookie Mitchel Moles (Raisin City, Calif.) set Fatheadz Fast Qualifying time during Lawrenceburg’s abbreviated, rained out Indiana Sprint Week round in July, but will plan to make his first series feature start at the track this Saturday. In June, he ran 8th at the Burg during USAC Indiana Midget Week.


 

Moles will be joined by Anton Hernandez (Arlington, Texas) as far as Fall Nationals Rookies, and will be driving for 2B Racing, which won a local show at Lawrenceburg in April with driver Chad Boespflug. Hernandez captured his first career 410 Sprint Car victory at Lawrenceburg in 2020.


 

Furthermore, it’s race number nine of ten for the Bubby Jones Master of Going Faster Series presented by Spire Sports + Entertainment. Brady Bacon leads the 10-race miniseries’ point standings by 26 points of Justin Grant (-26) with C.J. Leary (-52) in third.  The champion of which will receive a $10,000 bonus. One race remains after Lawrenceburg, on November 5, in the Oval Nationals at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.


 

Pits open for Saturday’s Fall Nationals at 3pm Eastern with front gates opening at 5pm, the drivers meeting at 5:15pm and hot laps at 6pm with qualifying and racing immediately following.


 

The event features the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship along with the KOI Auto Parts UMP Modifieds. Adult general admission tickets are $30, kids 7-12 are $7 and children 6 and under are free. Pit passes are $30 for members and $35 for non-members.

Let’s Just Race: That’s What USAC Sprints Will Do Friday at Kokomo

Jack Reitz

By: Richie Murray – USAC Media


 

Kokomo, Indiana (September 28, 2022)………Let’s just race. That’s the sentiment all will feel this Friday night, September 30, at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway when the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship makes its fifth stop of the year at the 1/4-mile dirt oval.


 

Let’s Just Race Presented By Schroeder Products brings along with it an abundance of storylines and items to keep an eye on for the final USAC event in the month of September.


 

Justin Grant aims to become the second driver ever to win three USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship races at Kokomo in a single season.


 

Kyle Cummins aspires to become the first driver to not only become the first driver to finish inside the top-five on five different occasions with the series at Kokomo in a single season, but also to repeat his dominant Smackdown performance.


 

Kevin Thomas Jr. eyes the opportunity to keep the streak of alternating victories on the tour alive as he seeks his second USAC victory of the year at Kokomo.


 

All three have won at Kokomo in USAC National Sprint Car competition in 2022 and all three seem to be the hottest drivers on the tour at the moment.


 

To boot, either Grant, Cummins or Thomas has won the last eight appearances of USAC National Sprint Car racing at Kokomo between 2021-22. Furthermore, each of three have been victorious in six of the last seven races on the tour leading into this Friday night’s event.


 

Grant (Ione, Calif.) won both July’s Indiana Sprint Week round and the opening night of Sprint Car Smackdown in August and has been the winner of five of the past eight USAC features at Kokomo. The 2017-19-21 track champion’s six overall USAC Sprint triumphs at Kokomo rank tied for third all-time with Tyler Courtney and trails only Dave Darland (9) and Tony Elliott (8).


 

Cummins (Princeton, Ind.) has won once, finished 2nd twice and 4th once in USAC National Sprint Car action at Kokomo this year. He’s also been fast time twice in August of this year and owns four career series wins at the joint. His Smackdown win in August was punctuated with a $35,000 top prize.


 

Thomas (Cullman, Ala.) collected a Smackdown prelim night win at Kokomo in August, which propelled him to two more USAC victories since that point, at Circle City Raceway and at Gas City I-69 Speedway. He’s alternated wins over the past six series races and, if you’re into numerology, the 2016 Kokomo track champion is due for a win at Kokomo this Friday night where’s he won five USAC National Sprint Car features.


 

Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) is attempting to scratch and claw his way into USAC National Sprint Car championship contention. He sits 80 points behind Grant in the runner-up spot at the moment. The 2020 track champion needs no reminder that Kokomo Speedway is one of the few tracks the four-time series titlist has yet to win at in his USAC National Sprint Car career, nor has his Dynamics, Inc./Hoffman Auto Racing team. Bacon has finished a best of 3rd this year at Kokomo on the final night of Smackdown.


 

There’s not been too many that have been as solid at Kokomo this year in USAC competition than Robert Ballou. The 2015 USAC National Sprint Car king and one-time Kokomo USAC victor has finished inside the top-five in three of his four starts this year at Kokomo with a 3rd in July, another 3rd in August and a 5th in the Smackdown finale.


 

C.J. Leary (Greenfield, Ind.) owns the longest active top-ten streak with the series at 12 dating back to July 25. That span includes all four of his USAC starts at Kokomo: a 4th, 7th, 3rd and 2nd for the three-time USAC Kokomo winner and 2015 track champion.


 

Emerson Axsom (Franklin, Ind.) is the only other driver this year to finish all of his 2022 USAC National Sprint Car starts at Kokomo inside the top-ten, garnering a 6th, 5th, 5th and 8th. The leading USAC National Sprint Car Rookie’s first USAC national win of any kind came in a NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship race where he scored top honors in April of 2021.


 

Likewise, Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.) notched his first career USAC National Sprint Car victory at Kokomo in 2019 with the Sprint Cars. In four series starts this year at the track, he’s managed a best of 11th.


 

Thomas Meseraull (San Jose, Calif.) is one of only 12 drivers to win at least three USAC National Sprint Car races at Kokomo. His three came in the successive years of 2017-18-19. His best result at Kokomo in 2022 came on the opening night of Smackdown when he snagged an 8th.


 

Chase Stockon (Fort Branch, Ind.) has finished a best of 9th twice at Kokomo this season, but his shining moment at the track came in 2015 when he grabbed a second night Smackdown score.


 

Scotty Weir and Shane Cottle have earned six career Kokomo track championships between the two. Weir (Marion, Ind.) the 2008 and 2012 track title holder, was 14th this year with USAC at Kokomo back in August. Cottle (Kansas, Ill.) has collected four track championships at Kokomo in 2004-05-07-11. He was 15th in his only Kokomo USAC start this season, missing the ensuing three during Smackdown due to injury.


 

Mitchel Moles (Raisin City, Calif.) has been a standout Rookie in USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car action this year, winning twice. Off the trail however, he did pick up his first sprint car feature win without a wing on Independence Day weekend at Kokomo, July 3. He finished 10th twice in his two USAC National Sprint Car starts in August of this year at Kokomo this year.


 

Jake Swanson (Anaheim, Calif.) had himself his best run of the 2022 USAC season in August at Kokomo when he led 10 laps and finished 2nd on the penultimate night of Smackdown, which led into the following night where he connected on a fourth-place result.


 

Jason McDougal (Broken Arrow, Okla.) has taken home three top-tens in four Kokomo USAC National Sprint Car starts this year with 4th, 7th and 9th. Jadon Rogers (Worthington, Ind.), meanwhile, bagged a best of 6th and 8th with USAC at Kokomo in 2022. Rogers then went on to pick up his first career USAC victory in mid-September at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind.


 

USAC feature starts this season at Kokomo have also been recorded by Pleasant Hill, Ohio’s Matt Westfall (11th), who has been victorious with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) at the track. Anton Hernandez (Arlington, Texas), Max Adams (Loomis, Calif.) and Cole Bodine (Rossville, Ind.) have collected all the 13th place results between them in their USAC National Sprint Car performances this year while Carson Garrett (Littleton, Colo.) took a 19th. Brandon Mattox (Terre Haute, Ind.), meanwhile, has finished 23rd on three occasions this year at Kokomo, but in the last September USAC race held at Kokomo in 2020, he delivered by leading the six opening laps and tallying a 4th place result.


 

Mix those in with a full house of others for Friday night’s 30-lap, $5,000-to-win race, which is the 76th USAC National Sprint Car race ever held at Kokomo Speedway.


 

The USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship will be joined by the Indiana RaceSaver Sprints and Thunder Cars.


 

Grandstands and pit gates will open at 3pm Eastern with the drivers meeting taking place at 6pm. Hot laps will begin at 6:30pm with qualifying and racing immediately following.


 

General admission tickets are $25 for adults with kids age 12 under free. Pit passes are $35 for members and $30 for non-members.
