Thomas Stops Bacon At Bloomington

— Kevin Thomas Jr. turned in a dominant performance in winning Friday night’s Larry Rice Classic USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature at Bloomington Speedway. “It’s very important, for me especially,” Thomas noted. In fact, the very first of Thomas’ 29 career series wins came at Bloomington in 2012. Cottle led the opening lap before Thomas swiftly drove around the outside of Cottle in turns one two, nipping Cottle at the line at the conclusion of lap two. Thomas raced around the circumference of Cottle in turns one and two on the third circuit, then made a beeline for the bottom of turn three, stealing Cottle’s line and would remain on the same path for much of the remainder of the race. “It’s a line I hadn’t been running,” Thomas explained. With three laps to go, Bacon left the bottom open and Thomas nailed it to regain the lead. Onward Thomas went unchallenged for the remaining two trips around as he locked up a 1.479 sec.
