Zach Daum drove to his first victory in the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series. Driving the family owned #5d with a Stanton Mopar under the hood!
“It’s nice to get one,” Daum said. “I’ve won in USAC (Midgets), SMRS (Southern Midget Racing Series) and now POWRi and Badger. I’ve won in every (Midwestern) Midget series.”
Daum’s triumph Saturday also counted as a victory in the Stark Automotive Group/Mid-State Equipment Badger Midget Series, which co-sanctioned the event.
Daum led all 30 laps on the one-fifth mile track. The 21-year-old from Pocohontas, Ill., started on the outside of the front row and had to fend off an aggressive mid-race attack by Bubba Altig to capture the checkers.
