Rossburg, OH - Results Saturday (September 22) from the running of the Chevrolet Presents An American Revolution 27th "4-Crown Nationals" USAC Silver Crown Series race at Eldora Speedway, with starting position in parentheses, driver, laps completed, reason out if any and money won:

Jerry Coons Jr. of Tucson, Ariz. led all 50 laps to win Saturday night's "4-Crown Nationals" USAC Silver Crown Championship race at the Eldora Speedway. The win was his first in the series in the Rotondo Weirich Beast Stanton Mopar.

Coons was trailed at the checkered flag by Dave Darland, who kept pressure on in the closing laps, defending race winner Mat Neely, Aaron Pierce and Brian Tyler.

Commenting on his seven previous second-place finishes, including one this year at Richmond, Va., Coons said: "Those seconds were getting old. They were exciting but they got pretty frustrating. Staying in front of Darland makes this even more special."

Series point leader Bud Kaeding was 11th and leads Neely by 60 points going into next Saturday's race at Kansas Speedway.

Coons' victory makes him the second driver to win 2007 races in all three USAC National Series, joining Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
