Trey Gropp Claims First POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League Victory

Garden City, KS. (07/04/2020) Wrapping up night two of the 5th Annual Midget Roundup for the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League at Airport Raceway, where 25 midgets battle it out to find the fastest way to victory lane. After 30 trips around the fastest 1/6-mile dirt oval in Kansas, Gropp would use the high line to perfection, to capture his first ever POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League Win.

Trey Gropp found himself on fire all night. Picking up a heat race win early in the night would set him up well for the feature event. Starting in the fourth position for the 30-lap feature, Gropp found himself taking the green and settling into the third-place position. Robert Dalby and Cannon Mcintosh battled for the top two positions, while Gropp followed behind in third. The leader, Robert Dalby, hit lapped traffic and found himself battling for position on track. McIntosh tried to sneak by Dalby in turns 3&4 while he still found himself battling with lapped traffic. All while Gropp goes four in the fluff to take the lead coming out of turn 4. Gropp will lead lap 10 as a caution came out.

Gropp still leading, McIntosh followed behind in the second position, they took the green flag and made contact in the corner, which caused them both to lose some ground. Gropp and Mcintosh broke away from the rest of the field with 15 laps completed. Gropp stood his ground and rode the top side to claim his first POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League Victory.

"I just can't believe I held him off." Exclaimed Gropp. "This is the first win with MSW, it's pretty special. I just needed to hold on and don't miss my marks"

McIntosh Scores Victory back in his Family Owned Car for Night #1 of the 5th Annual Midget Roundup.

Garden City, KS. (07/03/2020) Cannon McIntosh, hops back in his family owned #08 for the weekend with POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League, and finds himself in victory lane. At the fastest 1/6- mile dirt oval in Kansas, all eyes were glued on the front-runners battling for the top positions. After losing the lead to Trey Gropp, McIntosh regrouped and found himself back in victory lane for the third time this season with the POWRi Midget Leagues.

Cannon McIntosh in the #08 lead the field to green flag competition, with the #2 of Bob Harr to his outside. McIntosh takes the early lead on the top side, while Bob Harr, Tristin Thomas, Robert Dalby, and Trey Gropp are fighting for positions 2-4. The #43 slows on the front stretch bringing out the caution. Once racing resumed on the racetrack, McIntosh would once again stretch his lead over the field. Gropp took over second place position from the #28 of Thomas.

McIntosh endured heavy lapped traffic ahead of him, which caused the #00 of Trey Gropp to reel him in. As McIntosh battled with a lapped car on the top side, Gropp took the bottom side of the racetrack and found himself taking over the lead. Gropp lead a lap, then gets into the back of a lapped car causing his motor to slow. McIntosh regained the lead and found himself back in victory lane for the third time this season. Followed by second place runner, Trey Gropp and rounding out your top three, Robert Dalby.

"Gropp got by me there, and I just wasn't driving hard enough. I was way tight, I just started working hard through traffic and I got back by him. I just needed to drive the car harder" Stated McIntosh. "It's cool that when Keith and the team aren't racing, I can come down here and we can put something together and go win."

"I followed the lapped car into the corner, and I caught him with the right front. The engine actually died, but somehow I kept it running." Stated second place finisher, Trey Gropp after his career best POWRi finish.

"We struggled coming off of turn two, the motor was spitting and sputtering. I have to go through and look at a couple of things, but otherwise, not a bad night." Stated third place finisher, Robert Dalby.

Belleville, IL.

The feature action was all over I-44 Riverside Speedway, as front row competitors #3N Jake Neuman and #71K Cannon McIntosh would bring the field of 22 starters to green flags racing as pole-sitter Neuman would gain the early lead. McIntosh would strike early though as a pair of cautions would keep the field bunched and give Cannon all the opportunity he needed, grabbing the lead in a hard-fought battle with Neuman. McIntosh would maintain the lead nearly half the feature as #67 Buddy Kofoid mounted a charge through the pack, stalking the leader for several laps.

With just under ten laps remaining Kofoid would strike on the exit of turn four using a high-to-low maneuver that would gain the lead from inside momentum as the pair crossed by the flag-stand. Kofoid would hang on to the front position picking up the first POWRi National Midget League feature victory of his career. Previous night's winner of the 7th Annual Turnpike Challenge #19az Logan Seavey would be among the hunt for the victory in the closing laps finishing in the runner-up position as McIntosh would stay close to the top, rounding out the night's podium.
