Shane Hollingsworth of Indianapolis, Ind., runner-up for the 2001 USAC Regional Dirt-Track Midget Car Championship, won Sunday night's 30-lap USAC Midget Car Special Event at the Kokomo (ind.) Speedway. He led the final 25 laps after passing Tony Stewart, who finished ninth after his car suffered mechanical problems.

The race was divided into two segments, with 15 laps before and after the track's 30-lap Sprint car feature. Hollingsworth led after the opening 15-lap segment, then continued his drive in the final 15 laps as Stewart, starting with a six-lap deficit in segment two, started at the rear and passed everyone except Hollingsworth in the remaining laps.

Trailing Hollingsworth in the official finish were Tony Elliott, Critter Malone, A.J. Anderson and Brad Kuhn. Preliminary heat races went to Anderson and Hollingsworth.
