Lebanon, IN — (March 29, 2016) — For the first time since April 7, 2012 brothers Kyle and Nick Hamilton will be racing against each other in the UAW American Mel Kenyon Midget Series. On that April night Nick Hamilton took the checkers and went on to win the next two races and take a second in his four appearances in a Kenyon Midget.
