Oklahoma City, OK. (03/27/2021) After a mid-race pass for the lead, the Penngrove, CA. native walks away scoring his 11th Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League win and just his fourth this season. Kofoid is on the hunt to break the record of most wins in a season which sets at 12 with Logan Seavey. Michael “Buddy” Kofoid picked up a heat race win and topped it off with another trip to victory lane to wrap up the second night of the 8thannual Turnpike Challenge at I-44 Riverside Speedway.
At the drop of the green flag, teammate to Kofoid, Brenham Crouch took the lead. Crouch led the first last and the field set in behind him. Crouch maneuvered himself around the track choosing the top side. A caution on lap 10 brings the field back together but crouch still strong with the lead.
Crouch the leader, Ryan Timms in second, and Kofoid in third bring the field back to green. Crouch still dominating on the top side and Kofoid on the hunt to grab the top position. On the track with 11 laps to go, Kofoid challenged Crouch to take the lead and stuck the slide job. Kofoid went on to lead lap 19.
Traffic closed in on the leaders and Crouch never left Kofoids tail, but Kofoid steals the win and makes it four in a row. Crouch finished in the second position, Emerson Axsom in third, Ryan Timms in fourth and Jake Neuman rounded out the top five.
The Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget League will be back in action tomorrow, Sunday March 28th at Port City Raceway. If you can’t be there in person, you can catch all of the action LIVE on MAVTV Plus.
