SOLOMON VALLEY RACEWAY NEXT UP FOR USAC/SMRS MIDGETS; SHERELL, BEASON SCORE IN ARKANSAS & OKLAHOMA

Matt Sherrell of Owasso, Okla. leads the new USAC/SMRS Great Plains Midget Series standings as the series gears up for May 15 and 16 races at Solomon Valley Raceway in Beloit, Kansas.

Sherrell led all 20 laps to win Friday night's feature event at the North Central Arkansas Speedway. Driving the Sherrell Paint & Body Bullet/Esslinger, Matt beat Evan Pardo, Andrew Deal, Eddie Martin and Rick England to the checkered flag.

Jonathan Beason of Broken Arrow, Okla. led the final 14 laps to score a home-state victory in Saturday night's 20-lap feature at West Siloam Speedway. Beason passed point leader Sherrell on lap seven and led the rest of the way in his Toro Lawn Equipment/BA Lawn & Garden Stealth/Esslinger Ford. Cody Brewer, Kurt Blackaby, Doug McCune and Will Pierce rounded out the "top-five" at the checkered flag.

The May 15-16 Beloit races will mark the 84th and 85th under USAC sanction in the Sunflower State but the first ever at the quarter-mile dirt track.
