History was made at Eldora Speedway over the weekend during the USAC portion of the Four Crown Nationals as Kyle Larson became only the second driver to ever sweep all three USAC National touring divisions since the legendary Jack Hewitt did it in 1998 (Hewitt won the UMP Modified feature as well that night). The eighteen year old driver had never even seen Eldora Speedway until the night before but his reputation as one of the best young guns in the nation proceeded him. Larson was also lucky enough to score the three wins in front of track owner Tony Stewart who was at the track and rewarded Larson with a $10,000 bonus check for his wins. Up first on the night for Larson was the Midget feature where he would start off the night from fourth place in his Keith Kunz owned, Toyota powered midget. Larson would dominate as he grabbed the lead on the first lap and never looked back as he would lead every lap to take the win in the caution-free feature. The top-five was rounded out by Bryan Clauson, Darren Hagen, Jerry Coons Jr., and Tracy Hines.

Larson would then take to the track for the Sprint Car feature as he would roll off from the 11th spot in the Hoffman Brothers sprint. Damion Gardner would lead early before being overtaken by Levi Jones on the 14th lap. Then Jones would blow a right rear tire and collect Gardner on lap 20 to bring out the caution and hand the lead to Chris Windom. With four laps to go Windom still held onto the lead while Larson had moved up to fourth. Bad luck struck the leader again as Windom would lose a tire to give the lead to Dave Darland. Then with to laps to go another caution flew which bunched the field up with Darland leading and Larson now in second. Larson would throw a classic slide job on Darland on the final lap to take home his second win of the night. Darland would come home second with Bobby East, Tracy Hines, and Hunter Schuerenberg rounding out the top-five. Levi Jones would lead early in the Silver Crown feature but on lap 4 Larson would get around him. Larson would make it through all the caution flags to win his third feature on the night and outran Jones, Clauson, Coons, and Hines who completed the top-five.
