American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) Midgets……..Garrett Mitchell of Washington, WV survived constant pressure to win last Saturday night’s 20-lap ARDC Midget race, presented by Carlisle Cement Products.

Garrett fended off early challenges from Kevin Woody on the bottom groove and JR Booth around the top, then late race challenges from Mike Bittinger and JR Booth.
