Rookie Trainor Claims Little 500 Victory

— In only his second career start in a sprint car, rookie driver Jake Trainor captured the 75th running of the Lucas Oil Little 500, passing Kody Swanson with 54 laps remaining. “This is my second sprint car race ever and I just won the Little 500,” he said. Trainor said once he closed on Swanson he wanted to make the pass to take the lead, noting he wanted Swanson to have to pass him. But he pulled away with Caleb Armstrong claiming the second spot with a pass of Swanson on the final lap. Armstrong pressed Tyler Roahrig for nearly 100 laps before running out of fuel. “I was there all night,” he said of running with the lead pack. “I have no complaints,” Swanson said of the third place finish. Swanson said the team had a really good car and a chance to win the race.
