2018 Driven2SaveLives BC39 FULL BROADCAST

Watch the full NBCSN broadcast of the 2018 Driven2SaveLives BC39 presented by NOS Energy Drink from Thursday, Sept. 7 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The historic first race on the new dirt track honored late USAC champion and three-time Indianapolis 500 starter Bryan Clauson and increased awareness of the Indiana Donor Network and its Driven2SaveLives campaign.

// RECAP //

Afternoon rain forced a four-hour delay before heat races could start during the first-ever event on the new quarter-mile clay oval inside Turn 3 of the famed IMS asphalt oval. A capacity crowd, which included retired NASCAR superstar Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Cup Series standout Ryan Blaney, witnessed history as Bacon added his name to a list of inaugural featured race winners at IMS.

Bacon, from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, earned $15,000 for the win in the 39-lap USAC P1 Insurance National Midget Championship A-Main feature in the No. 76M car fielded by FMR Racing. It was the first USAC Midget victory of the season for Bacon, 28, a two-time USAC Sprint Car National Champion.

Chad Boat, the son of 1998 Indianapolis 500 pole winner Billy Boat, finished second. Thomas was third, with Tyler Courtney of Indianapolis finishing fourth in a car fielded by Clauson-Marshall Racing. Tim Clauson, father of race namesake Bryan Clauson, co-owns Courtney’s car.

Thomas led the first 32 laps in the No. 63 car fielded by Joe Dooling. Bacon started seventh but climbed to second just before a six-car pileup in Turn 4 triggered a caution with 28 laps to go. Boat had jumped to fourth, behind Courtney, by that point after starting 10th.

The top four remained static during caution periods with 25 laps remaining and 23 laps remaining. With 19 laps remaining, Boat passed Courtney for third as the race stayed caution-free until the end.

Thomas, Bacon and Boat then reached a dense thicket of traffic with 13 laps to go, but Thomas stayed out front despite multiple attempts by Bacon to take the lead on the fast, tacky track, which featured a wide cushion of dirt on the high line.

Bacon made his decisive move in Turn 4 with seven laps remaining, passing Thomas for the lead with a powerful move in the low groove. Boat jumped to second one lap later and set his sights on Bacon but never pulled even with the “Macho Man” over the last five laps.

Focus Midget Race Driving School

One bright Saturday morning at Ventura Raceway, Wally Pankratz showed five of us the basics of driving a 200hp Ford Focus Midget race car.

We brought ZERO race experience and did what we could to absorb the instruction, follow directions, and keep our shorts clean.

This was an overwhelming sensory experience! Sound, sight, feeling, emotions, all mixed in. Video shows us creeping around, but when you're at the wheel, you are certain that the world's fires cannot catch you.

This all started with our friend Paul wondering aloud what it must have been like for Parnelli Jones to drive a midget at Ascot Park back in the day. I suggested we call Wally and see if he'd show us. Ohhhhhh yessssss! We had five in our group, including 14 year old Jacob who had never driven a street car before. He was great! We were all heroes for the day and this is a highly recommended activity for anyone wanting to experience a real race car on a real track under controlled conditions.

Williams Grove Speedway Midget Car Racing, PA, 1962

Williams Grove Speedway midget car racing in Pennsylvania, 1962. Silent regular 8mm film by my father, Al Mozzer.

Midget racing , 1976 Western Springs test match racing. Rare film !

Not great quality footage but very rare film.

Kiwi speedway legend Trevor Morris features in this amateur silent film from 1976.
His outdated ( by American standards ) Chevy 2 midget #58 is up against the new revolutionary V.W powered midgets of American legend Mel Kenyon ( blue Thermo-King #1 ) and probably Australian driver Johnny Fenton in the orange #1 car.
Other cars and drivers featured are : #6 Pat Johnson and #2 Ted Tracey and Kerry Morris #14.
In the pits Mel Kenyon relaxes on a pile of tyres and chats to Barry Butterworth in between races.
Also featured is a sidecar race with a crash.

I hope drivers and fans of the era can fill in some of the long forgotten drivers names in the races
