Fort Wayne IN, 8-19-00 - Gene Lee Gibson, in the Ideas Corp-Gilmore Construction-Fastenal Autocraft, continued to pad his point lead with another convincing victory in the ARCA Auto Value Midget Series Saturday night under the lights at Baer Field Speedway.

The two-time and defending ARCA Midget champ, well on his way to a third consecutive title, raced by Jason Fuller’s Suspension Spring-AFCO-Hoosier Hawk on lap 21 of the 30 lap main event and never looked back to score his 18th career ARCA Midget win. The victory moves the Richwood, Ohio driver to third on the all-time ARCA Midget win list behind Jim Hettinger and Mike Fedorcak.

Hoosier Tire Pole Award winner Jimmy McCune charged ahead to finish second in front of Dave Baumgartner, Fuller and Sondi Eden to complete the top five.
