BOWMAN: East claims Silver Crown Series title


The USAC Honda National Midget Series’ 25-lap feature was notched by Rico Abreu, piloting Keith Kunz’s Curb-Agajanian No. 67K.

The California standout took advantage of Clauson’s misfortune to secure the win.

Clauson paced the field the opening six laps before mechanical woes thwarted his bid for the win. Abreu took the lead and never looked back despite the charge by his teammate, Christopher Bell, who captured the Kokomo leg of Indiana Midget Week. Hines was third, East fourth and Darland, the 2001 and 2002 series champion, rounded out the top five. Coons was seventh, Windom 15th and Clauson 17th among drivers with local interest.

With just over a handful of races remaining for the National Sprint Cars, Clauson and Darland are just about deadlocked. Clauson holds a slim, two-point lead over Darland (1,634-1,632) with a Saturday race at the Lawrenceburg Speedway up next. Brady Bacon’s title hopes took a big hit when he flipped while running third. Bacon currently sits third in the standing with 1,543 points. Thomas (1,435) and Chase Stockon (1,416) complete the top five.

In the Midget division, Bell holds a huge lead over Clauson (737-663) heading into a three-day show at the Tri-City Speedway (Pontoon Beach, Ill.) on Oct. 3-5. Hines is third with 661 markers while Coons holds down fourth with 612 points. Former series champion Darren Hagen rounds out the top five with 589 as those four drivers seem to be battling for who will finish second to Bell.


Veteran Danny Stratton picked up his eighth career POWRi Midget Series event Saturday night at the Macon (Ill.) Speedway.

Chasing Stratton to the checkered flag was Andrew Felker and Zach Daum. Daniel Robinson came home fourth with Bubba Altig completing the top five. Kokomo’s Parker Price-Miller secured yet another top-10 run, finishing eighth and solidifying his bid for Rookie of the Year honors.
