LOYET WINS DuQUOIN & MID AMERICA FOCUS TITLE

Brad Loyet of St. Louis, Mo. won Saturday's 40-lap USAC Ford Focus Midget race at the Southern Illinois Center in DuQuoin, Ill. and emerged as the champion of the Pepsi "Mid America Ford Focus Midget Championships."

Loyet grabbed the lead from Jasiel Randolph on lap two and led the rest of the way but had to fight off a determined bid from runner-up Dustin Morgan of Collinsville, Okla.

Morgan actually led through turn two of lap 31, then regained the lead from Loyet coming through turn four on the final lap but Loyet shot underneath him to take the race at the wire!

Trailing Loyet and his Loyet Motorsports/Durst Motorsports Beast were Morgan, Randolph, Robbie Ray and Stephanie Mockler.

Josh Clemons, Dave Darland and Morgan won eight-lap heats but Darland was forced out of the feature after just one lap following a turn-two tangle.

The next USAC Ford Focus Midget race is March 12 at Bakersfield, Calif.
