Kaylee Bryson Bags First
Midget Top Ten Finish – Set for Lucas Oil
Speedway on Saturday
Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (May 3,
Kaylee Bryson notched her first top-ten
finish in Midget racing competition with the
POWRi West Midget League at Sapulpa, Oklahoma’s
Creek County Speedway last Friday night.
Now, the 18-year-old from Muskogee, OK,
makes her first visit to Wheatland, Missouri’s
Lucas Oil Speedway on Saturday night for a Lucas
Oil POWRi National Midget event.
“It will be my first time to go there, I’m
excited to be racing there,” Bryson says.
Last week originally called for a POWRi
National Midget triple, however weather altered
plans. With an early rainout of Friday’s
scheduled card at Illinois’ Belle-Clair
Speedway, Bryson and the Dave Mac Motorsports
No. 11b Toyota-TRD team made an appearance for
POWRi West Midget action at Creek County
Escaping a heat race tangle, Bryson raced
on to a fourth-place finish and the climbed from
13th to post a tenth-place finish in
the main event.
“I was getting some good seat time, it was
my first time back in the Midget in a while,”
Mother Nature continued to be problematic,
washing out Saturday’s scheduled event at
Pevely, Missouri’s Federated Auto Parts I-55
Raceway and then interrupting Sunday’s card at
Illinois’ Jacksonville Speedway after Bryson had
raced her way into the feature event.
After being collected in a heat race
incident, Bryson raced forward in “B” Main
action to secure a feature starting position
before the skies opened up and put a halt to the
action. A makeup date for the feature has
not yet been determined.
“I was looking forward to that feature, it
was a fun track to race on,” Bryson commented.
It will be more new territory for Bryson
on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway.
Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing
partners making the 2019 slate of events for
Bryson possible includes Sanders and Associates,
Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway Engine
Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear,
Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke, Walker
