BC39 Heat Races on the Dirt Oval at IMS
Sep 4 - It was an exciting Wednesday night in the infield at
IMS as the Bryan Clauson 39 "Driven To Save Lives"
Midget cars raced.
As the final race came down to the end, there were only
three racers left. As they slid, crossed and fought for the
lead, only one car survived to cross the finish line.
Nascar Cup driver Kyle Larson won this crazy race.
The crowd loved the show.
More races to come on thursday Sept 5th.

Sept 5 - Teen phenom Zeb Wise held off hard-charging
runs from NASCAR stars and his Clauson-Marshall Racing
teammates for a storybook win in the second annual
Driven2SaveLives BC39 on the Dirt Track at IMS.
Wise, 16, prevailed after a thrilling four-lap shootout with
two of his Clauson-Marshall Racing teammates, Tyler
Courtney and Chris Windom. Courtney finished second
and Windom third.
The race name, distance and Wise's number are in honor
of USAC champion and Indianapolis 500 veteran Bryan
Clauson, who died in a racing accident in 2016. Clauson
and his father spotted Wise's talent during a quarter-
midget race five years ago at the Indianapolis Motor
Speedway, and Tim Clauson asked Wise to join the team
as a development driver just a few months after Bryan's

The BC39 is a midget car race held on a dirt oval in the
3rd Turn Infield of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The race attracts some Nascar and IndyCar drivers who
compete with USAC Midget National Championship Drivers.
The race is named in honor of Bryan Clausen, an American
dirt-track champion who made it to the Indy 500 three times.
On August 6, 2016, Clauson was involved in a midget car
crash at Belleville High-Banks Speedway in Kansas, and
died the following night at age 27.
