CLAUSON TAKES 25-POINT NDC LEAD TO COLUMBUS

Bryan Clauson's 25-point USAC National Drivers Championship point lead was unaffected by last week's AMSOIL USAC National Sprint race results in Indiana but this Saturday's JEGS Crown Midget Supernationals at the Columbus (Ohio) Motor Speedway provides another chance for runner-up Levi Jones to close the gap.

Clauson and Jones each advanced eight points as a results of last week's races at Putnamville and Terre Haute, Ind. Clauson finished third at Putnamville and fourth at Terre Haute, while Jones was second at Putnamville and eighth at Terre Haute.

Each driver's "throw-out" stands at 34, which means a "top-five" finish for either at Columbus would advance their totals in the standings toward the $40,000 bonus awaiting the National Drivers Champion at season's end.

Jerry Coons Jr. was unable to improve his NDC total over the weekend but Tracy Hines gained four points with his fourth-place Putnamville finish and now trails Coons by just four points in the new standings.
