Speedway Indiana (October 12, 2021)………This was a championship that, admittedly, wasn’t in the plans for Kody Swanson.
Not that it was unlikely he could pull it off for a sixth time, but it was for the simple fact that he announced during the offseason that he was only going to compete in the pavement events on the USAC Silver Crown trail in 2021 while he also pursued part-time roles in stock cars and with the SRX series throughout the summer.
Without a full-time Silver Crown ride on both dirt and pavement, Swanson had to utilize a full assortment of resources. A ride in the No. 77 with sports car racing standout and new Silver Crown entrant Doran Racing was secure for all four pavement events. But the dirt was a different story.
Swanson obtained a ride with the Mark Swanson Encore Team No. 21 for both Eldora rounds, then was tabbed for driving duties in Chris Dyson Racing’s No. 9 for Selinsgrove (Pa.) Speedway and the two Illinois dirt miles in Springfield and Du Quoin.
“I’m thankful that I had a chance with the Mark Swanson Encore Team and Chris Dyson to score points on the dirt,” Swanson praised. “It was just one race at a time – that was it – and thought I might as well try to stay alive as long as I could.”
While jumping back and forth between rides can be a difficult chore for most individuals without the aid of continuity and camaraderie that is a byproduct of being with a team for the full season, for Swanson, it presented an all-new challenge that he was willing to take on as the dawn of summer took hold.
In fact, on just 10 previous occasions did a driver win the Silver Crown championship by utilizing multiple cars throughout the season: Larry Rice (1977 & 1981), Ken Schrader (1982), Chuck Gurney (1989), Jimmy Sills (1990), Tony Stewart (1995), Ryan Newman (1999), J.J. Yeley (2002), Chris Windom (2016) and Swanson himself in 2019.
With that said, no driver had ever won the championship while competing for three different teams. That is, until Kody Swanson did it in 2021. None of the three teams were full-time entrants on both dirt and pavement, thus did not concern themselves with the prospects of a championship run, and instead, could go all-out and focus solely on winning races, all to the benefit of Kody.
“I’m so fortunate to have had three great race teams this year that put me in great cars and gave me great opportunities,” Swanson said. “But I can’t believe it all worked out like this.”
During the year, Swanson became just the fifth driver to win USAC Silver Crown races for multiple teams in a single season, joining Steve Kinser in 1981 for Bill King and Johnny Vance; Brian Tyler in 2002 for Dynamics Inc. and Six-R Racing; Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in 2007 for Carl Edwards/RE Technologies and Tony Stewart Racing; plus Cole Whitt in 2009 for CW Management Service and Johnny Vance.
After Swanson’s victory in the season opener at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Ind. on May 29, the Kingsburg, California native’s 88-race start streak (2nd all-time) came to an end at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. with his first Silver Crown absence since 2011, a race won by Shane Cockrum.
Eventually, Swanson became the first driver in 27 years to miss a race entirely and go on to win a USAC Silver Crown championship. Jimmy Sills had been the most recent to do so in 1994. Also accomplishing the feat were Gary Bettenhausen (1980 & 1983), Dave Blaney (1984), Rick Hood (1985), Jack Hewitt (1986), Chuck Gurney (1989), Jeff Gordon (1991), Mike Bliss (1993) and Sills (1994).
While Tyler Courtney obliterated the largest-ever Eldora Silver Crown field of 30 cars on June 26, an astute run from 15th to 3rd at Eldora for the Mark Swanson Encore Team suddenly changed the course of Kody’s plans. Coupled with rough outings for several other championship frontrunners, Kody suddenly found himself thrusted into the title race, sitting second in the standings entering July.
The point lead belonged to Swanson despite missing out on a victory by a half car length to Justin Grant in the series’ debut on the Winchester Speedway high banks in eastern Indiana in July. A 6th at Selinsgrove, Pa. came next, which kept him abreast at the top of the points entering two-straight rounds to finish out August that would cement his championship ambitions.
A dominating win at Lucas Oil Raceway on August 14 was followed by a rain-shortened score on the Springfield Mile at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, placing him 51 points ahead in the title race with a final three-race stretch on the horizon.
When things go as smoothly and as flawlessly as it did for Swanson throughout the first three-quarters of the year, despite possessing an abundance of confidence, it’s only human to wonder if misfortune is lurking around the corner looking to strike a pose at a moment’s notice.
While running second on Labor Day at the Du Quoin (Ill.) State Fairgrounds, Swanson’s afternoon went to shambles as his ignition box faltered, forcing him to slow and stop on the back straightaway on lap 59. He’d return to the fray, albeit four laps down and finishing a season-worst 17th. Coupled with Logan Seavey’s runner-up finish that day, Swanson’s lead now stood at just 16.
Seavey’s subsequent victory at Eldora’s 4-Crown Nationals in late September and Swanson’s 5th place result put the margin at just one single point, with Swanson leading going into the October 10 finale on the pavement of Ohio’s Toledo Speedway, right in Swanson’s wheelhouse, at a place where he’d won four previous times.
Swanson was dominant throughout, but a near catastrophe in lapped traffic with 17 laps remaining almost cost him everything in a mere split second. As Annie Breidinger spun sideways in turn three and was hit by Tyler Roahrig, Swanson had no time to avoid the carnage, hitting Roahrig in the rear bumper, which put a good-sized puncture in the nose and bent the front axle.
Surviving the melee, Swanson fended off Bobby Santos throughout the remainder of the 100-lapper to simultaneously win the season finale race and the championship, making Swanson the first driver to achieve that feat on three separate occasions after previously doing so in both 2014 and 2015.
It’s just the 13th occasion that feat has been accomplished in the 51-year history of the series that a driver has “walked-off” with a win in the final race of the season and a driving title: Al Unser (1973), Bobby Olivero (1979), Gary Bettenhausen (1980), Jack Hewitt (1986), Steve Butler (1992), Jimmy Sills (1996), J.J. Yeley (2002 & 2003), Bobby East (2012) and Chris Windom (2016).
Four wins, 5 poles, 304 laps led, 7 top-fives and 8 top-tens in 9 starts is an amazing run by any stretch. To do it all with three separate teams is on the brink of astonishing. Kody continues to rewrite the record books and, once more, has rewritten what we consider to be astonishing. What we consider astonishing, for Kody, this has become a common occurrence for him do the types of things we thought never could be done. In 2021, Kody upped the ante and captured our imaginations once again.
“I thought it was a big success to win with Doran Racing in our first year together on the pavement,” Swanson recapped. “It was a big success for Kent Wolters, Josh Carpenter, Ryan Roberts and I to put the 21 car together and come from 15th to 3rd at Eldora in the summer. And it was big for me to have a chance with Chris Dyson and Sean Michael and his whole team to get my first dirt win in three years at Springfield.
It’s been a big year,” Swanson continue. “I didn’t do any of it alone and I certainly didn’t do any of it without my wife (and spotter) Jordan. I’m just thankful.”
Meanwhile, an exceptional Rookie season for Logan Seavey resulted in his first two career victories at Selinsgrove and the Fall race at Eldora, which put him just 34-points behind Swanson in the final standings and earned him series Rookie of the Year honors. His runner-up finish in the points is the best in the series since Chris Windom was 2nd in 2013.
Seavey’s team, Rice Motorsports, secured the series’ entrant championship in its first year of full-time competition. Team owner Robbie Rice joined his father, 1977 and 1981 Silver Crown driving champion Larry Rice, as a series champion himself.
The season also marks just the seventh time in which the driver champion and entrant champion were not on the same team: driver Larry Rice & entrant Johnny Vance (1981); driver Ken Schrader & entrant Steve Enslow (1982); driver Ryan Newman & entrant Snider-Foyt Racing (1999); driver Bobby East & entrant RW Motorsports/Curb-Agajanian Racing (2012); driver Chris Windom & entrant DePalma Motorsports (2016); driver Kody Swanson & entrant Klatt Enterprises (2019); and driver Kody Swanson & entrant Rice Motorsports (2021).
At 53 years, 10 months and 10 days old, Brian Tyler became USAC Silver Crown’s oldest race winner after capturing a barnburner at Du Quoin in September, which was his first series start in two years. That surpassed the age record of Chet Fillip, who was 51 years, 2 months and 25 days when he won at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway in 2008.
Tyler’s win came following a gap of 10 years and 17 days since his most recent USAC Silver Crown victory, which was the second longest gap in series history behind Shane Cottle who set the record with a triumph at Selinsgrove in 2020 at 12 years, 11 months and 7 days. Both wins were achieved in the very same BCR Group No. 81.
Additionally, Tyler and Russ Gamester both wrapped up their 201st career USAC Silver Crown starts in the season finale at Toledo, tying them for the all-time record in that category alongside Dave Darland. Gamester became the second driver to reach the 200 start mark in August at Lucas Oil Raceway while Tyler became the third individual to hit 200 at Eldora in September.
