Toyota driver Logan Seavey captured his first USAC Indiana Midget Week crown on Sunday after the scheduled finale at Kokomo Speedway (Kokomo, Indiana) was rained out.
The reigning USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget champion won Tuesday’s Indiana Midget Week opener at Montpelier Motor Speedway (Montpelier, Indiana). He finished with four Top-3 podium finishes in five races, including second-place finishes at Lincoln Park Speedway and Bloomington Speedway, and a third-place Saturday night at Lawrenceburg Speedway.
“We had a good car every night,” the Sutter, California native said. “To be on the podium four out of five races in USAC is really good. It’s as competitive as it’s ever been. There are a lot of great drivers who have won Indiana Midget Week, so It was pretty special just to win a race, let alone the whole thing. We’re starting to hit our stride. Hopefully, we can carry this momentum for the rest of the year and win a second-consecutive USAC championship.”
Meanwhile, Seavey’s Keith Kunz Motorsports (KKM) teammate ,Tanner Thorson was this year’s runner-up. His performance marked his first races since a serious auto accident in late March. Thorson won Thursday night’s race at Lincoln Park Speedway. In addition, he placed second at Montpelier Motor Speedway, fifth at Gas City Speedway and fourth at Lawrenceburg Speedway.
Tyler Courtney, Shane Golobic, Chris Windom, Chad Boat, Kevin Thomas Jr., Jerry Coons Jr., Jason McDougal and Zeb Wise completed the Top 10 in the final standings.
Seavey’s title is the second in a row and the fifth for a KKM Toyota driver in the last seven years. He joins Spencer Bayston (2018), Rico Abreu (2014, 2015) and Christopher Bell (2013).
