Swanson Scores First Indiana Sprint Car Win
INDIANAPOLIS (Apr. 17, 2017) – Former Little 500 winner & USAC National Silver Crown champion, Kody Swanson won his first career Indiana Sprint Car feature Saturday night at Lincoln Park Speedway. Swanson held off defending track champion, Shane Cockrum to put the Epperson Painting/SPIKE Chassis/Claxton Engines No.2e in victory lane.
Drawing for starting position in his heat race, Swanson would start 4th and finish 2nd, qualifying him for a spot in the feature event. The inversion put Swanson the key starting spot, rolling off from the pole position. Swanson would start on the pole of the feature event and lead all 25 laps at the tricky quarter-mile oval.
Swanson triumphed over drivers Shane Cockrum, Shane Cottle, Tyler Thomas, and Jon Stanbrough, who would round out the top five finishers in the 22-car field.
“I’m thankful to be driving for Tony & Millie,” said Swanson. “I have really enjoyed working with Gary and the 2E team. They are all such great people that it is fun racing with them, and I’m happy to get them to Victory Lane.”
