Eden wins up in Dixie.
BIRCH RUN MI (8-2-02) Sondi Eden captured her 2nd career ARCA Auto Value Midget Series victory Friday night at Dixie Motor Speedway. The Crawfordsville, Indiana driver hustled her B&R Fire-Schloot Furniture Brayton Chevy-powered midget from the seventh starting position into the lead on the second lap and never looked back.
ARCA Midget veteran Gary Harrell finished second in the Dove Racing Autocraft Hawk with Matt Brun trailing in third. Phil Shroad and Adam Schuyler completed the five respectively.
Series point leader Dave Baumgartner, who won the Old Milwaukee Quick Time Award, started eighth in the inversion but was involved in an accident before completing a lap. Baumgartner, who still maintains the point lead over Eden, was relegated to the 10th finishing position as a result.
Next event for the ARCA Auto Value Midget Series will be at Mansfield Motorsports Speedway on August 17.
