OLSON, MARTZ, IMEL LAND VICTORY LANE TRIPS AT NEW CASTLE

INDIANAPOLIS -- Another serving of "Wednesday Night Thunder" is up this Wednesday at Mt. Lawn Speedway in New Castle, Ind. after two drivers continued their recent dominance in their respective series and another joined the winner's list for the first time this season.

Brian Olson of Puyallup, Wash. scored his initial USAC Regional Midget Car Series victory last week, passing Travis Young on Lap 21 and leading the rest of the way in his No. 71 machine. Young, who cut Scott Thoman's point lead for the second straight week to 38, finished second, ahead of Joe Liguori, Bobby Smith and Thoman.

Two-time USAC Ford Focus champion Tate Martz, in the No. 1 Greg Steele-owned Lucas Oil/Tony Stewart Racing machine, returned to Victory Lane last week as well, leading 26 of the 30 laps of the USAC Indiana Ford Focus Midget Car Series race after an early battle with Tyler Irwin. Point leader James Robertson was second, ahead of Andy Nock, Josh Clemons and Alison MacLeod. Robertson's lead over Martz stands at 17.

Sammy Imel of Anderson, Ind., driving the Nol 35 Kenyon/Yamaha cut into Chris Windom's lead again as well, winning his third USAC Kenyon Midget Car Series race of the season after leading the last 10 laps of the 30-lap feature. Blake Fitzpatrick and Chris Windom -- both early race leaders -- finished second and third, ahead of 2004 champ Dakoda Armstrong and Jordan Pennington. Windom still leads Imel by 27 points.
