Chris Windom became just the sixth driver to win all three of USAC’s open wheel divisions at the 4-Crown Nationals in his career joining Jack Hewitt, Dave Darland, Tyler Courtney, Jerry Coons Jr. and Kyle Larson in that regard.
“I’ve wanted to win here in a midget pretty bad,” Windom said. “Turns three and four were sketchy on the fence for 25 laps, but I just knew I had to run the heck out of it down there. Coming off the top in one and two, I felt like was gaining there instead of following it around. I had to use a little more tire than I expected to after that one. I had to run super hard to stay out front. The midgets are so tight on competition right now. All these guys are so good.”
