REGIONAL "TRIPLEHEADER" AT MOUNT LAWN WEDNESDAY; HAMILTON, MacLEOD, WIMMENAUER STAR AT ANDERSON

Mount Lawn Speedway in New Castle, Ind. hosts yet another "Open Wheel Extravaganza" this Wednesday night, featuring USAC Regional Midget, Kenyon Midget and Indiana Ford Focus competition. Drivers Travis Young (Regional Midget), Kyle Hamilton (Indiana Focus) and Drew Charlson (Kenyon) are the respective point leaders.

Kyle Hamilton, Alison MacLeod and Jeff Wimmenauer were the feature winners in last Wednesday night's "Open Wheel Extravaganza" USAC events at Anderson (Ind.) Speedway.

MacLeod, of Mississauga, Ont., Canada, became the winningest female driver in USAC history by leading all 30 laps to win the Regional Midget race in her Ribwear/Ford Racing Beast/Ford. She was trailed by series point leader Young, James Robertson, Dakoda Armstrong and fast qualifier Parker Klingerman. The victory was her sixth in USAC competition, eclipsing the five wins posted by drivers Stephanie Mockler and Audra Sasselli.

Hamilton, of Danville, Ind., passed Tyler Cottongim on lap six of the Midwest/Indiana Ford Focus Midget race and led the last 25 laps in his Curtis Motor Sales/Pit Fit Training Beast to win the feature over Craig Haack, MacLeod, Jordan Pennington and Steven Mathews. The win extended Hamilton's point lead in both series.

Wimmenauer, of New Whiteland, Ind., passed Drew Charlson on the third lap of the Kenyon Midget race and led the rest of the way to win the 30-lapper over Charlson, fast qualifier Dillon Welch, Dalton Armstrong and Caleb Armstrong. Wimmenauer piloted the Industrial Anodizing Yamaha.
