American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) Midgets……..Shawn Jackson of Bear, DE led all 20 laps to win last Friday night’s 20-lap ARDC Midget race at Big Diamond Speedway. Jackson won using a production-based Honda powerplant. Jake Winters, driving Jimmy Glenn’s second entry, was also powered by a Honda engine and finished 4th overall. This may be a good sign that the switch in engine rules will be the resurgence ARDC needs. Heat Winners were Shawn Jackson and Jimmy Glenn. From the drop of the green in the feature it was Shawn Jackson leading the way. He would have to hold off charges from Michael Markey in his Fontana powered midget, but would come out victorious.
Next up, the ARDC Midgets will compete alongside the winged 600cc micros at the newly built Bloomsburg Fairgrounds Raceway in Bloomsburg, PA on Thursday May 27th. Prior to the race there will be a meet and greet at Marley’s Brewery and Grille from 1-3PM.
