Californian T-Mez Makes His Move On Indiana Sprint Week At Kokomo

By choice or by opportunity, Thomas Meseraull rarely does things conventionally when it comes to series racing. Quite often, T-Mez operates as a low-budget team and almost always shows up large in the biggest events. This year is no different as the California native jumped into the Chase Briscoe Racing sprinter and took the lead on lap 3. From there T-Mez worked the high side, diving down when he needed, as he worked his way through lap traffic.

Darland set quick time for the night, McDougal, Leary, Short, and Ballou won the heats. K. Thomas, T. Thomas, Bacon, Darland, Hodges, and Buckwalter transferred from the semi to the main. The series moves to the Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, Indiana for round four of the seven events in the ISW. Chris Windom currently leads the Sprint Week with 215 points, followed by Dave Darland (199), Tyler Courtney (197), Brady Bacon (194), and Kevin Thomas Jr. (194). Meseraull currently sits in 8th with 149 points.
