FIKE GETS 1ST SILVER CROWN WIN AT IOWA SPEEDWAY

Newton, Iowa.......A.J. Fike of Galesburg, Ill. scored his first career USAC Silver Crown victory Saturday at Iowa Speedway, winning the 100-lap Casey's General Stores USAC Triple Crown Pride of Iowa race on the 7/8-mile paved oval.

Fike passed Shane Hmiel on lap 16 and led the rest of the way in his Liberty Village/McGladrey & Pullen Beast/Foxco. Kody Swanson outduelled new series point leader Bud Kaeding to finish second. Hmiel took fourth ahead of Jerry Coons Jr. Bobby East was the fastest qualifier but failed to finish the 100-lapper after leading the first two laps.

Kaeding, hoping to become USAC's first four-time Silver Crown champion, leads Fike by nine points in the new standings going into next Friday's "Hoosier Hundred" in Indianapolis, Ind.
