LISMORE, Aus. (January 28, 2017) — Rico Abreu completed a clean sweep of the World Midget Car Championship event Saturday at Lismore Speedway. Abreu set fast time, won both of his heat races, and two feature events driving for Keith Kunz Motorsports.

Abreu started on the front row and led every lap during the 20-lap feature rescheduled from the rain out on Thursday. In the 40-lap finale Abreu and fellow American Brady Bacon swapped the lead back and forth before Abreu took the lead for good on lap 15.

Dayne Kingshott moved past Bacon for second, but could not catch Abreu. Bacon held on for third while Brock Dean and Michael Stewart rounded out the top five.
