Santos Collects $26,000 IRP Jackpot

—  If Friday night’s Hoosier Hundred had been a standard 100-lap affair, the closing scene very well might’ve been played out to a completely different ending for Bobby Santos. I didn’t want to build a new car; I didn’t want to do it. Santos led the 32-car field to the green flag, the largest field for a pavement USAC Silver Crown race since an August 2005 event at IRP. On lap 24, Billy Wease (25th) and Kyle Robbins (26th) both sustained terminal damage to their cars when they tangle in the third turn. With a mere 30 laps remaining, on lap 115, Swanson’s car dramatically slowed on the front straightaway before stopping in turn two, handing the lead over to Santos. For Santos, it was his third May USAC Silver Crown triumph at IRP, and his second consecutive from the pole.
