For 29 and three-quarters of a lap, Logan Seavey was staring straight at the tail tank of his teammate Rico Abreu's car as he followed him lap-after-lap around the Bakersfield Speedway 1/3-mile dirt oval. But all it took was one quarter, and one big run off the high side of turn four, for Seavey to race around the 2014 series champ for the lead and score his third victory of the year by a .292-second margin. With the victory and the subsequent addition of maximum feature points to his credit, Seavey has essentially clinched the USAC P1 Insurance National Midget championship, carrying a 137-point advantage into Thursday's season finale, the 78th "Turkey Night Grand Prix" at Ventura (Calif.) Raceway.  Paul Trevino Photo

Sure, Brenten has five career A-Main victories to his credit but they have all come in 360ci competition but his latest result ranks as his best run in a 410ci Sprintcar. “I Surprised myself a little last weekend, but we have worked extra hard over the off season to put everything in place to put our best foot forward in making the step up to 410. I’m under not false hope, this is hard and to do this night after night is going to be difficult but I’m up for the challenge” added Brenten following the A-Main. Press Releases11/8

Just when you began to count this pair out, here they are, back with gusto in the autumn of Friday night's 30-lapper at Arizona Speedway and in the autumn of the racing season. After relinquishing the lead twice - on lap 7 and lap 18 - Grant didn't let himself get thrown far from the bull. He grabbed it by the horns and charged back into contention, for the final time with five laps remaining, escaping between Tyler Courtney and the outside turn two wall like a matador side stepping the brunt of a bull's charge to score his third USAC National Sprint Car feature victory in his last four starts.
