FEATURE LAP LEADERS: Laps 1-50 Swindell.

Indianapolis, Ind…….Kevin Swindell of Germantown, Tenn. scored the biggest victory of his USAC racing career Saturday night, leading all 50 laps to win the 62nd Toyota “Night Before the 500” National Midget race at O’Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis. Swindell started on the pole in his Kasey Kahne Racing Mopar/Team ASE Beast/Mopar and drove away from the field before the first yellow flew on lap 33. He proceeded to do the same after ensuing yellows and was never really challenged all night long. Western Speed teammates Bobby Santos III and Billy Wease took second and third ahead of Bobby East and Kyle Nicholas. “It’s nice to give Kasey Kahne his first “Night Before the 500” win as a car owner,” said Swindell after the race. Kahne also drove to victory in tonight’s NASCAR Busch Series race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C. “This is the biggest Midget race of the year and to put this team together in less than a year is remarkable.” Brady Bacon was the fastest qualifier but retired near the finish when his engine expired while running sixth. Heats went to Wease, Bradley Galedrige, Bryan Clauson and Swindell. Brian Olson and Josh Wise won semis. Kasey Kahne Racing cars now rank 1-2 in the updated Toyota Challenge standings going into the June 16 finale at O’Reilly Raceway Park
