With the Keith Kunz Motorsports team taking the weekend from midget competition to prepare for Indiana Midget Week, which kicks off June 11 at Gas City (Ind.) I-69 Speedway, up-and-coming racer Tanner Thorson will be hopping into the Fike family’s No. 3 midget for Illinois Speed Week.

Thorson, who posted a picture of himself being fitted for the familiar No. 3 on Twitter, will follow the Lucas Oil POWRi Midget Series for four consecutive nights.

Illinois Speed Week kicks off Thursday (June 5) at Quincy Raceway and continues with events at Lincoln, Macon and Belle-Clair Speedways.

While Thorson will be among the contenders each night, his Keith Kunz Motorsports teammates Christopher Bell and Rico Abreu will take the weekend off. Bell is scheduled to race non-winged sprint cars in Indiana, while Abreu continues to recover from a broken collarbone suffered May 25 at Wisconsin’s Angell Park Speedway.

Bell, who was last year’s Illinois Speed Week champion, currently leads the POWRi standings with seven victories. Zach Daum enters the weekend second in the standings with Thorson third.
