Swanson Leads The Way At Circle City

INDIANAPOLIS — Since leaving California for the Midwest, Jake Swanson had won multiple USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship races, but had never had the good fortune of winning a USAC feature in his newly adopted home state of Indiana. Swanson’s next shot fired saw him swipe the lead from Ballou momentarily in turn four on lap 11. Swanson slid up in front of Ballou on entry to turn one a moment later with Swanson’s rear bumper and Ballou’s front bumper grazing each other before Swanson took off for good. On lap 13, Cummins swept past Ballou for the second spot in turn three. Cummins picked off Ballou for second with an outside turn-two pass on lap 17 while Bacon slipped under Ballou on lap 21. Up front, however, it was all Swanson who accumulated his third career USAC National Sprint Car feature victory over Cummins, Bacon, fast-qualifier Justin Grant and Ballou.
