REGIONAL MIDGET TITLE IS HAMILTON's 5TH IN USAC

The 2009 USAC Regional Midget title belongs to Kyle Hamilton of Danville, Ind. Despite not participating in Saturday's finale at Berlin Raceway in Marne, Mich., he finishes the series with a 199-point cushion over runner-up Mario Marietta.

Marietta, of Indianapolis, Ind., earned the number two ranking by winning the Berlin finale on Saturday night. He passed Daniel Bedford on the 20th lap and led the final six laps of the race co-sanctioned by WOMS. Trailing Marietta's First Financial Bank/White Construction Beast/Mopar at the checkered flag were Bedford, who led the first 19 laps, Alfred Galedrige Jr., Jim Anderson and Bradley Galedrige.

The title is Hamilton's fifth, adding to this year's National pavement Ford Focus title, 2008 titles in the Midwest and Indiana Ford Focus series and a 2007 Kenyon Midget crown.
