"WEDNESDAY NIGHT THUNDER" BACK THIS WEEK AT ANDERSON

INDIANAPOLIS -- USAC Regional, Indiana Ford Focus and Kenyon Midget Car Series competitors hope a change of venue will be enough to keep the rain away Wednesday when they take to Anderson Speedway in Indiana.

The races will be the first at the quarter-mile track since July 5.

Rain again returned to Mt. Lawn Speedway in New Castle, Ind. during last week's edition of "Wednesday Night Thunder", but it didn't start before Blake Fitzpatrick earned his initial USAC victory in Kenyon competition. The West Terre Haute, Ind. native, driving the No. 10 Lincoln Trail Ford/Forsythe Racing Kenyon/Yamaha, led the final 19 laps of the 30-lap contest after taking the lead from point leader Chris Windom on Lap 12.

Former champion Dakoda Armstrong was second, followed by Sammy Imel, Windom and Jordan Pennington. Imel cut Windom's lead to 21 points.

The Regional and Focus races were called off due to the weather, but have been rescheduled Aug. 9. Scott Thoman leads the Regional Midget points, while James Robertson owns the lead in the Indiana Ford Focus standings.
