Aguilar Collects Second Half of USCS Weekend Sweep at Anderson
In poker, a pair might be the worst hand, but for Joey “The Ace” Aguilar, a pair was exactly what he was looking for at Anderson Motor Speedway.

Aguilar, a longtime pavement sprint car ace from Tampa, Florida, powered around the outside of 2012 Carolina RaceSaver Sprint Car Series champion Jake McLain in turn one on lap 14 of Saturday night’s United Sprint Car Series filtercharged by K&N 40-lap Summer Nationals A-main finale and drove away to his second victory in two nights in dominating fashion, despite a late-race charge from Johnny Bridges.

Prock Earns Third STARS Midget Victory
To finish first, you must first finish. This old proverb was never more apparent than it was during Saturday night’s D’Arcy GMC STARS National Midget feature at Grundy County Speedway. In the 30-lap war of attrition, several front runners suffered mechanical trouble that relegated them to the pit area while only five cars were able to make their equipment last the distance.

 In the end, it was 18-year-old Avon, Indiana resident Austin Prock who was able to weather the storm of futility and enable himself to bask in the limelight of victory lane once again in 2014 after winning the “Bob Tattersall Challenge.”  Full Story

 

 

Aguilar Streaks to USCS Victory at Anderson on Friday
