The battle for USAC's 2012 National Drivers Championship
continues this week at two Mopar National Midget races at
Plymouth (Ind.) Speedway Friday and Saturday.
Tracy Hines, with a fifth, 11th and 13th in three races
last week, has a nine-point lead over Darren Hagen in the
new standings. Hagen recorded a seventh and a ninth last
week, while third-ranking Levi Jones, who trails Hines by
34 in the new standings, had a ninth in the Toledo, Ohio
Silver Crown race.
The National Drivers Championship will heat up July 13-21
as the AMSOIL National Sprint cars compete in seven races
in nine nights, constituting "Indiana Sprint Week."
