Eves Holds Off Frost In Mid-Ohio Scramble

LEXINGTON, Ohio – Local favorite Braden Eves vaulted from sixth in the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires points table to second Wednesday afternoon following a victory for Exclusive Autosport at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Eves, who won last year’s Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship, along with a scholarship to ensure graduation onto the next step of the acclaimed Road to Indy ladder, emerged as top dog to scoop his first Cooper Tires Pole Award by a scant .0394 of a second over Frost. After the first attempt at a start was waved off because the full 17-car field wasn’t properly aligned, Eves timed his getaway perfectly at the second time of asking to lead Frost into the first corner. But again Eves was up to the challenge, and even though his lead was always tenuous, he held on to take his first Indy Pro 2000 victory by just .3024 of a second. Eves’ performance also ensured a first PFC Award for Michael Duncalfe as the winning car owner.
