Belleville, IL. (10/06/2020) Battling Mother Nature the whole evening of Friday, September 11th for the annual Herb Barlow Memorial resulted in completely rescheduling the entire event for Friday, October 9th. POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Micro Sprint League, and MOWA Sprints will all be in attendance for a completely new racing program.
Before the heavy rainfall on September 11th the drivers and fans were in for a good show, with 30 POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets in attendance and 18 POWRi Engler Machine & Tool Micro Sprints. We saw some familiar faces getting the heat race victories in the POWRi midget heat races before the persistent rainfall.
Thomas Meseraull of San Jose, CA. took the Schoenfeld Headers Heat Race #1 Win. Brenham Crouch, a member of the KKM crew captured AFCO Heat Race #2. The current POWRi season points leader, Jake Neuman won Diversified Machine Heat Race #3, and Minden, NV. Native Tanner Thorson claimed high point man and won Auto Meter Heat Race #4. Although Friday, October 9 will be a completely new show on the schedule, expect to see some of the familiar faces back in action.
