McVetta Scorching At Indy Summer Nationals


(LOR) Brownsburg, IN – The Midwest Supermodified Series Started Their 2020 Season At Lucas Oil Raceway Park With The Must See Racing Series Sprints Last Night.  The Stage Was Set To Be A Scorching Hot Day, With The Unforgiving .686 Mile Oval, Would Test The Teams Resolve.  Although Ohioan Mike McVetta Driver/Owner Of The #22 Rocket Chassis Car Seemed To Be Hooked On Rails Off The Start In Practice And Posted Fast Qualifying Time Of 18.289, Mike Was Challenged With Doing Quick Repairs From Sustained Damage During His Heat Race And Could Not Finish.  In The Feature, McVetta Had To Start In The Rear, But That Did Not Deter Him Getting To The Front.  By Lap 3 McVetta Had Moved To Fourth After Passing Otto Sitterly (NY) And By Lap 6, He Passed AJ Lesiecki’s New #88 Roadster.  From There Mike McVetta Would Not Look Back As He Claimed His 1st Feature Win Of The Year, His 2nd Win @ Lucas Oil Raceway Park.  “I Tell You, This Crew Give Me Such An Unbelievable Car,” Said McVetta. “I Don’t Know How That Car Drove So Good, It Is Still Bent Up From My Heat Race. It Was Bad Fast, It Has Been Bad Fast Since We Unloaded Yesterday. The Guys Just Gave Me Such A Great Car. I Just Can’t Thank Them Enough”

AJ Lesecki And Otto Sitterly Would Pace The Field On The Start, But It Was Lesiecki That Would Lead The Charge While Sitterly, And Trent Stephens Follow In 3rd.  On The 3rd Lap, The Caution & Red Flag Would Come For Oil Cleanup On The Track But With The Quick Restart, Stephens Would Sneak Past Sitterly While McVetta Was Hot On The Heels And Would Overcome Sitterly A Lap Later. Not More Than A Lap Later, And Despite Having A Strong Afternoon, McVetta Would Claim The Lead From Lesiecki.

Lesiecki Would Ultimately Fade To 4th As #1 Bobby Santos Would Edge Him For The Final Podium Spot While #72 Danny Shirey Would Finish 5th To Round Out The Top 5. Sitterly Would Ended His Night After Finding A Cracked Front Axle. Hard To Charge Were #55 Rich Reid And #30 Talon Stephens With #64 Jim Paller To Follow.
