This week’s “4-Crown Nationals” at the Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio offers three opportunities for USAC National Drivers Championship contenders to improve their standings.
The Mopar National Midgets, AMSOIL National Sprints and Traxxas Silver Crown cars are all in action in Saturday’s program at the Ohio half-mile, along with USAC’s Mopar .25 Midgets, competing at the “Little E” oval.
Although Bryan Clauson’s 96-point lead over Levi Jones was not affected by last Saturday’s AMSOIL Sprint results at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., two drivers were able to advance in the “top-10” rankings.
Dave Darland’s fourth-place Tri-State finish boosted him past Darren Hagen into fourth in the NDC standings. Chris Windom’s fifth-place finish enabled him to pass Jerry Coons Jr. for seventh in the new standings.
