Nick Hamilton tames the Indianapolis Speedrome Friday night

 For immediate release

 (Lebanon, IN) Danville (IN) native Nick Hamilton tamed the Indianapolis Speedrome on Friday June 7.  Hamilton accomplished a rare feat in K&M Tool and Die Mel Kenyon Midget Series Speedrome events – he led all 50-laps of the feature event.

 Hamilton jumped to the point exiting turn two on the first lap and set sail for victory lane. His night was not without challenges however. One red flag on lap 24 and a yellow on lap 38 allowed his main protagonist Tommy Kouns to restart on Hamilton’s back bumper.  Kouns closed on Hamilton several laps after taking the second spot from Logan Huggler, keeping the winner honest throughout the race.

 Colin Grissom fell to the 7th position after start the race in 6th and then began a climb back up the chart. Coming to the white flag Grissom was challenging Kouns for second while defending against point leader Kameron Gladish.  Kouns slipped up the track exiting turn four allowing Grissom and Gladish to dive under him exiting turn four.

 At the checkered flag the official results showed Hamilton in 1st, Grissom 2nd, Gladish 3rd, Kouns 4th and Nathan Foster closing out the top five.

 With four races in the books Gladish leads the championship point race.  Kouns holds second, with Grissom, Logan Huggler, Simpson World Indy ROY candidate Jack Macenko and Logan Huggler filling out the remainder of the top five spots in the K&M Tool and Die Mel Kenyon Midget Series Championship point standings.

 The K&M Tool and Die Mel Kenyon Midget Series will travel to the legendary Salem Speedway on Saturday June 15 to make its inaugural appearance at the historic Southern Indiana short track.  The K&M Kenyon Midgets will compete in the Casey’s Homemade Pizza 30 on the short track along with the Kentuckiana Legends Series.  The Short Track events will be accompanied by the Casey’s General Store 75 for Great American Stocks on the High Banks.  Qualifying is at 6:00 with racing set to follow at 7:05.

POWRi LUCAS OIL CALIFORNIA LIGHTNING SPRINT CARS AT BAKERSFIELD SATURDAY!
 
(Torrance, CA, June 10, 2019) The POWRi Lucas Oil California Lightning Sprint Car Series heads to the Bakersfield Speedway for round #8 of its championship season this Saturday night, June 15th.  The race will be the third of five for the CLS at the 1/3 of a mile Kern County clay oval in 2019.

Going into this week’s race, five-time series champion Bobby Michnowicz has the point lead for the second race in a row.  The veteran driver holds a 21-point advantage over two-time and defending CLS champion Jarrett Kramer of Spring Valley.  Kingsburg’s Doug Nunes, Eric Greco of Palmdale and Camarillo’s Cody Nigh make up the remainder of the top five.
 
Through the first seven CLS races of the year, Michnowicz, Kramer and Nunes have been the only drivers to score main event wins.  Going into the last race at the Ventura Raceway on June 1st, they each had a pair of victories.  Kramer, 37, broke the deadlock that night when he notched his third triumph of the campaign. 
 
In the previous two races at Bakersfield this year, Nunes and Michnowicz have emerged victorious.  Forty-two-year-old Nunes won the season opener there on March 16th and 55-year-old Michnowicz took the trophy back to his Lomita home on April 20th
 
Thus far in 2019, Michnowicz only has one finish out of the top five.  That was a seventh at Ventura on May 4th.  Kramer’s only finish out of the top three all year was a 20th at Barona.  Nunes has only placed out of the top three two-times and both of those came at Ventura.
 
In addition to the CLS, the Western Pro Stocks, American Stocks, Mini Stocks and Outlaw Karts will also be in action.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 P.M. and the first race will take the green flag at 7:00.  Fans who would like to attend can find the Bakersfield Speedway at 5001 N. Chester Ext., in Bakersfield (93308).  The track website is http://www.bakersfieldspeedway.com/ and the office phone number is (661) 393-3373.
