ANDERSON HOSTS TRIPLEHEADER WEDNESDAY, KENYON MIDGETS SATURDAY CLOUSER, COTTONGIM TAKE "REGIONAL" FEATURES

The Anderson (Ind.) Speedway hosts a pair of "regional" events this week. Wednesday night's "tripleheader" includes the Regional Midgets, Kenyon Midgets and Midwest Ford Focuses, while Saturday's program, featuring the "Anderson 200" USAC Mopar National Midget race, also includes the Kenyon Midgets.

Kyle Hamilton, Dillon Welch and Joe Liguori continues to lead their respective "regional" point standings entering this week's Anderson races.

Mario Clouser of Auburn, Ill. led all 36 laps of Saturday night's "Carter/Anderson Classic" USACRegional Midget race at Grundy County Speedway in Morris, Ill. in his Illinois Corn Marketing Board/RTS Farms Beast/Stanton Mopar. Jim Anderson took second, with Patrick Wilda third, Alison MacLeod fourth and Danielle Dickson fifth. Series point leader Hamilton was sixth.

Tyler Cottongim of Avon, Ind. emerged the winner of Friday night's 30-lap USAC Midwest Ford Focus race at Kil-Kare Speedway in Xenia, Ohio, leading the last 28 laps after passing Michael May on lap three. Trailing Cottongim's O'Kelly's Restaurant Stealth were Jimmy Simpson, Shannon McIntosh, Kyle Ogara and Chris Lamb. Series point leader Liguori was the fastest qualifier but finished 10th in the feature.

Last Wednesday's scheduled "regional" tripleheader at Anderson was cancelled by the race organizers due to threatening weather forecasts.
