BLOOMINGTON, IN – Bryan Stanfill captured his first career USAC Midwest Regional Midget feature victory Friday night at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway.

Starting fourth, Stanfill (Bakersfield, Calif.) led the final 10 laps of the 15-lap event after taking the lead from Tyler Nelson on the sixth circuit. Nelson later ran into mechanical trouble which knocked him out of the race early, finishing 8th.

Driving the Griffiths Motorsports No. 75AU, Stanfill was followed to the line by defending series champion and new series point leader Chett Gehrke (Broken Arrow, Okla.), Max Adams (Loomis, Calif.), Brayton Lynch (Springfield, Ill.) and Jeff Schindler (Evansville, Ind.).
