The “4-Crown Nationals” at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio September 20 is next on the calendar for the Honda USAC National Midgets. Despite a disappointing 13th-place finish Sunday night at Sun Prairie, Wisc., Rico Abreu continues to enjoy a comfortable 82-point lead in the standings over runner-up Tracy Hines.
Defending series champion Christopher Bell of Norman, Okla. scored his third consecutive Angell Park Speedway victory in Sunday’s “Miller Lite Cornfest” 30-lapper at Sun Prairie co-sanctioned by Powri and Badger.
Bell led all 30 laps in his Toyota TRD Bullet/Speedway Toyota to beat Darren Hagen, Tyler Thomas, Hines and Bryan Clauson.
Bell has now won all three USAC Midget features at the one-third mile dirt oval this season.
