OCTOBER 4 "HUT HUNDRED" NEXT UP FOR MIDGETS; YELEY RETURNS TO GRAB "4-CROWN" MIDGET THRILLER

Tracy Hines of New Castle, Ind. now prepares for the October 4 First Financial Bank "Hut Hundred" Midget race at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track, the next hurdle in his pursuit of USAC's "Triple Crown." Hines emerged from Saturday night's "4-Crown Nationals" at the Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio with a 78-point lead over Cole Whitt. Hines and Whitt finished 21st and fifth respectively at Eldora, Hines flipping on lap three of the feature but escaping injury.

J.J. Yeley of Phoenix, Ariz. piloted the Klatt Enterprises Ford Racing Beast/Esslinger Ford to victory in the 25-lapper at Eldora, leading the final nine laps. Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who passed Yeley on lap 12, clipped another car and spun on lap 17, restarted at the back of the field and was charging when he flipped on lap 20. He was transported to Wayne Hospital in Greenville, Ohio for observation, then released.

Trailing Yeley to the checkered flag Saturday night were fast qualifier Dave Darland, Brad Sweet, Brady Bacon and Whitt.

A 100-lap feature is on tap at Terre Haute, where rains forced cancellation of last year's "Hut Hundred."
