TULSA, Okla. (August 13, 2018) – The Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League presented by Executive Concrete NWA will make its lone appearance of the 2018 season at Sapulpa, Oklahoma’s Creek County Speedway this Thursday night.

The Midget series will accompany the night’s $2,500-to-win USAC Southwest Sprint Car “Freedom Tour” event in a special non-points event for the POWRi West Midget ranks.

Parity has prevailed in the POWRi West Midget ranks thus far in 2018 with 15 different winners in 18 feature events.

The only drivers to post multiple wins include Christopher Bell, who swept the season-opening double at Oklahoma City’s I-44 Riverside Speedway, along with Broken Arrow’s Jonathan Beason and Nixa, Missouri’s Wesley Smith.

Single wins have been scattered among another dozen drivers including current series points leader Kory Schudy of Springfield, Missouri and teenage top-five points contenders Hank Davis of Sand Springs and Cannon McIntosh of Bixby.

Other top series contenders likely to vie for Thursday night Midget glory during the Freedom Tour week include Broken Arrow’s Hunter Fischer and Hunter Adair, Claremore’s Blake Edwards, Norman’s A.J. Burns, Sand Springs’ Brendon Wiseley and defending series champion Grady Chandler of Edmond among others.
