Non-Wing Sprints ANDERSON – For the second consecutive year misfortune for Kody Swanson spelled victory for Tyler Roahrig...
Tyler Roahrig inherited the lead for the conclusion of the Glen Niebel Classic and powered to an impressive win at Anderson Speedway. The 20th running of the Glen Niebel Classic presented by CB Fabricating and Thompson Insurance was completed on Thursday after inclement weather on Sept. 12 stopped the action. It was Roahrig’s second sprint car win on the high banked quarter-mile oval having won the Tony Elliott Classic last year. Nick Hamilton finished second 7.76-seconds back followed by Kody Swanson, Aaron Pierce and Caleb Armstrong.
Last Thursday’s 20th Glen Niebel Classic presented by CB Fabricating and Thompson Insurance was postponed due to lightning and rain and has been scheduled to be completed on Thursday night.
Just when it looked like Frankie Oakes' strong performance in the ThunderCar 100 would not produce a victory, his fortunes took a 180 degree turn. With ten laps remaining in the PGG Enterprise ThunderCar race at Anderson Speedway Saturday, race leader Josh Garr had smoke erupt from his ride.

The sound of non-wing sprint cars is returning to Anderson Speedway this week for the 20th running of the Glen Niebel Classic presented by CB Fabricating and Thompson Insurance. After taking a weekend off because of the action at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Anderson Speedway kicks off the week on Thursday with sprint car racing and a 100 lap feature on Saturday for the PGG ThunderCars presented by AERCO Heating and Cooling and Sherwin Williams.
Anderson driver Elliott McKinney took advantage of an early opening to score his first feature win of the year in Marcum's Welding Front Wheel Drive action.
Kody Swanson took advantage of an opening in the low groove to win the sprint car feature on UAW Night at the Races Saturday Night. Swanson chased early race leader Aaron Pierce for more than 100 circuits and finally prevailed with the inside pass helped by lapped traffic.
Dustin Sapp added his name to the long list of winners in the 70th running of the National Crown at Anderson Speedway. Sapp led all but one lap of the 50-lap National Crown on Saturday for the PGG Thunder Cars on Edgewater Woods/ Sugar Fork Crossing Night. Although Sapp led for most of the night he was never able to pull away from the other cars running on the lead lap, winning by a half-second over Curtis Chapman.
