ROBERTS, WELCH SCORE "REGIONAL" WINS AT MORRIS

Kyle Hamilton and Dillon Welch continue to lead USAC "regional" series point standings after last Saturday night's "Illinois State Championship" racing events at Grundy County Speedway in Morris, Ill.

Hamilton finished third in Saturday's 40-lap Regional Midget feature, while Welch won the accompanying 20-lap Kenyon Midget race.

Levi Roberts of Broomfield, Colo. led the final 12 laps to win the 40-lap "Illinois State Championship" Midget race. Roberts trailed Brian Olson for the first 28 laps, then took the lead in his DMS Race Products/F & F Mechanical Beast/Esslinger Ford. Fast qualifier Aaron Andruskevitch finished second ahead of series point leader Hamilton, Olson and David Byrne. The next Regional Midget race is September 5 at Grundy County.

Welch, of Noblesville, Ind., racked up yet another USAC Kenyon Midget feature victory Saturday night at Morris, leading wire-to-wire to win the 20-lap race. Grant Galloway, Jake Blackhurst, Nick Hamilton and Isaac Chapple trailed at the checkered flag.
