The POWRi Midgets will then travel to Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, IL for $3,000 to win. The Saturday, July 12th event will be POWRi’s first ever visit to the 1/3 mile semi-banked oval. The UMP Modified Summer National make-up feature event, in addition to a complete show, will also take place on Saturday night.
After sweeping the Pepsi Nationals, Christopher Bell has reclaimed the number one spot in the point standings. Bell has taken home nine POWRi feature wins so far this season. Zach Daum, the 2013 POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Champion, stands only a mere 40 points behind Bell. Bell’s teammates Tanner Thorson and Rico Abreu both captured second and third place finishes at the Pepsi Nationals, which moved Thorson up to third and put Abreu back into the top ten where he currently sits ninth. Falling back two spots, Tyler Thomas currently sits fourth. Darren Hagen was able to salvage his fifth place position in the point standings even after a disappointing weekend. However, Andrew Felker and Parker Price-Miller only trail Hagen by 20 and 25 points, respectively. After having a consistent weekend at the Pepsi Nationals, Jake Blackhurst sits eighth and Austin Brown sits tenth.
