Rico Abreu’s drive to the 2014 Honda USAC National Midget Championship won’t resume until November 20 when the series travels to Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Ariz. to begin the three-night 47th Annual Sands Chevrolet “Western World Championships.”
The series went into hibernation last weekend as continuing rains and low temperatures conspired to force cancellation of the 6th Annual “Gold Crown Midget Nationals” three-night extravaganza at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill.
That left Abreu with a 79-point lead entering the November races at Peoria. Teammate Christopher Bell, the defending series champion, is second in the current standings.
The 2014 series and the USAC calendar will conclude November 27 with the running of the 74th “Turkey Night Grand Prix” at the Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.
HONDA USAC NATIONAL MIDGET POINTS: 1-Rico Abreu-867, 2-Christopher Bell-788, 3-Tracy Hines-786, 4-Bryan Clauson-744, 5-Zach Daum-663, 6-Chris Windom-594, 7-Tanner Thorson-569, 8-Michael Pickens-499, 9-Dave Darland-419, 10-Andrew Felker-378.
