Thorson Finishes Strong At Merced

MERCED, Calif. — The USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget season concluded in the same manner it began — with Tanner Thorson in victory lane. “I just tried to keep my composure and hit my marks,” Thorson explained. As eyes were peeled on Kofoid and Courtney nose-to-tail at the top of turn three on lap 27, Thorson casually snuck by both on the bottom, leading a three-wide formation at the start/finish line with Courtney to his inside and Kofoid to his outside all separated by within a half-car length. Kofoid tried with all his might to grapple his way back into contention with Thorson while utilizing the top, but Thorson ably obtained a little bit of ground on Kofoid when he disposed of the lapped car of Bryant Wiedeman in turns one and two coming to the white flag. “When I started hitting my lines, I was able to run down Buddy (Kofoid) pretty fast,” Thorson recalled.
