August 30.....The final entry list is set for the Driven2SaveLives "BC39" presented by NOS Energy Drink and, man, it's extraordinary!
      When the entry period concluded at noon on Wednesday, 118 USAC P1 Insurance Nationals Midgets had entered the September 5-6 event at the new Indianapolis Motor Speedway Dirt Track, toppling the record book for most cars to ever to enter a USAC National Midget event in its 63 years of history.
       The all-time highest car count in the series came in 1990 when 109 competed in the final race at the famed Ascot Park half-mile in Gardena, California for the annual "Turkey Night Grand Prix."
      The lineup literally contains an entire field of past USAC National Midget feature winners, 24 in total, and eight past series champs including Dave Darland (2001 & 2002), Tracy Hines (2015), Christopher Bell (2013), Tanner Thorson (2016), Jerry Coons, Jr. (2006 & 2007), Russ Gamester (1989), Spencer Bayston (2017) and J.J. Yeley (2013), who've all won feature events.
        Yeley is the lone driver in the field to have competed in both the Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 during his career.  However, he's not the only one with stock car experience on the famed 2.5-mile paved oval surrounding the ¼-mile dirt track.  Eight-time Brickyard starter Landon Cassill plans to make his USAC debut at the "BC39."
       The Driven2SaveLives "BC39" presented by NOS Energy Drink kicks off the week of racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway leading up to the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard powered by Florida Georgia Line on Sunday, September 9.
      The race will take place at the new quarter-mile dirt oval located inside turn three of the famed 2.5-mile oval and will include a unique format that concludes with a 39-lap feature Sept. 6 in the richest Midget racing event in recent history. The event will feature more than $70,000 in purse and incentives, including a $15,000 winner's purse - the largest in Midget racing.
       For the first night of action on Wednesday, September 5, will feature hot laps, heat races and a pursuit race.  The public gates open at 3pm with cars set to get on track at 5pm.  On Thursday, September 6, on-track action will begin with hot laps, as all cars will practice with their respective qualifying races, before getting into the qualifying races and the alphabet mains, concluding with the A-Main event.  The public gates open at 3pm with cars set to get on track at 5pm.
       Tickets are now on sale for the Driven2SaveLives "BC39" presented by NOS Energy Drink at the Dirt Track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on September 5-6 featuring the USAC P1 Insurance Midget National Championship. Tickets and all the race info can be found on
