East scores 30-lap Anderson Midget win.

Bobby East of Brownsburg, Ind. returned to the site of his initial USAC feature victory Saturday night and walked off with the 30-lap main event again.

East trailed early leader Teddy Beach for the first 10 laps, then led the rest of the way in his Klatt Enterprises Beast to beat Beach, Richey Jacobs, Aaron Pierce and Ron Gregory to the checkered flag.

The race, billed as a "special event," was a repeat of a similar event during 2001 which produced the young East's initial USAC triumph. He went on to become USAC's youngest National race winner ever with a later victory during 2001.

East was also Saturday's fastest Anderson qualifier but finished second to Beach in the opening heat race. Jacobs also won a preliminary heat race.
