MACON, ILL. (July 27, 2019) – Aiming for redemption after he lost last year’s trip to Macon Speedway in a nail-biting finish, Jake Neuman of New Berlin, Ill. found exactly what he was looking for on Saturday night. Leading the final 26 laps, Neuman drove the Jim Neuman Racing, BRANDT, BOSS/SR-11X No. 3N to an impressive fourth-career win with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League.

Earning PAC Racing Springs High Point Man honors with a fourth-to-first heat win, Daniel Adler of St. Louis, Mo. had the privilege to lead the 23-car field to the green flag. After pacing the opening four laps, his No. 50 went to the wayside as Neuman slid his way into command.

From there, Neuman was large and in charge as the field behind him continued to jockey for position on the tight 1/5th-mile bullring. Tyler Thomas, who picked up Friday’s win at Belle-Clair Speedway, was patient in the early running before he mounted a late charge and drove by Adler for the second spot with ten laps left.

However, Thomas nor 22 other competitors could prevent Jake Neuman from tasting that sweet redemption at Macon Speedway on Saturday night. Leading the final 26 laps and parking the No. 3N in victory lane, Neuman’s triumph marked the fourth of his POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League career and is his second win in the last five races.

Chasing Neuman to the checkered flag at Macon was Tyler Thomas with a solid second-place effort in the BT Machine, Spike/Toyota No. 91T. Daniel Adler rounded out the podium with an impressive third-place result for his No. 50 machine. Closing out the top five was Jesse Colwell and Daison Pursley of the Keith Kunz-Curb Agajanian Motorsports squad.

Also finishing inside the top ten was hard-charging Terry Babb in sixth-from-19th, Zach Daum in seventh, Karter Sarff in eighth, Daniel Robinson in ninth and Shelby Bosie in tenth.
