Clauson Takes Round Three At Bloomington
Bell took the second spot and an early-season 42-point margin in the standings aboard the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports – Toyota TRD No. 71 Bullet/Speedway Toyota.
“I couldn’t be happier to have three podium finishes after three nights out here. This is the toughest midget racing in the world, so I couldn’t be happier. I kept trying different things with the shocks under yellow. I tried going up there after Clauson went by me, but I just had nothing. On that last restart, I hit on something with the car and got up alongside him, but he came back down to the bottom and I bottomed out, so that killed my run,” Bell said.
Abreu picked up his best finish of the week and vaulted to sixth in points for the week in the Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports – Toyota TRD No. 67K Bullet/Speedway Toyota.
“I could see Clauson’s shadow a few times. I was working on keeping my momentum on the bottom. I was gonna stay down there until someone drove by me, and he ended up getting me. I wasn’t as good when I tried to move up, and I actually lost another spot before I got back down. We’re still working, and every race we’ve gotten better. I just need to keep qualifying well to start up front and give myself a chance. As tough as these USAC races are, starting up front is really important,” Abreu said.
Davey Ray and Jerry Coons Jr. rounded out the top five.
