The Dauminator Denies Thorson, “Parks It” At Lincoln Speedway

Lincoln, IL – Current leader of the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series points standings, Zach Daum, rallied back against Tanner Thorson at Lincoln Speedway to collect career victory number 17. Daum started on the outside front row and vaulted to an early lead over the pair of Keith Kunz Motorsports entries, Tanner Thorson and Carson Macedo. Daum held a healthy lead over Thorson until lap 13 when racing was halted for Ryan Robinson who flipped entering turn one. Robinson was alright and able to continue after a quick visit to the work area.
