Tulsa, OK. (10/14/2021) Michael “Buddy” Kofoid of Penngrove, CA picked up where he left off with the series and earned his Keith Kunz team the Annual Donnie Ray Crawford Sonner State 55 victory at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, OK. Kofoid dug himself out of his 19th starting position to charge his way to the lead to capture his eighth Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League Victory of the year.

On the opening lap of the 55-lap feature event, the pole sitter, Cannon McIntosh jumped out to an early lead on the bottom side of the track. McIntosh immediately took command and caught the beginning of the lapped traffic. With only 6 laps down, McIntosh tangles with a lapped car and comes to a stop. Tanner Berryhill assumed the lead as the field got brought back to green.

As the drivers settled in for the long run, Berryhill found himself with a big advantage over the rest of the field and continued to grow his lead. Jake Neuman, Ryan Timms, Tanner Thorson, and Christopher Bell slid each other for positions two through five. After a few cautions bunched back up the field, on a restart Ryan Timms slid Berryhill for the lead and prevailed shortly as they make contact and Timms stopped on the track.

On the restart with 33 laps to go, Berryhill re-assumed the lead with Christopher Bell following in second, Tanner Thorson in third, and Buddy Kofoid in fourth. Kofoid slowly made his way up to third and then set his sights on the top two. As Berryhill and Bell are battling close for the top spot, Kofoid splits them both in turn 1&2 and goes from third to first to take over the lead.

As soon as Kofoid found himself in the lead, he never looked back and went on to capture his eighth Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League Victory. Christopher Bell finished in second, Cannon McIntosh in third, Bryant Wiedeman in fourth, and Tanner Berryhill rounded out the top five.

The Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget League will be back in action tomorrow, Saturday, October 15 at I-44 Riverside Speedway.
