Springfield, IL – Kody Swanson of Kingsburg, Calif. led wire-to-wire to win Sunday’s “Tony Bettenhausen 100” USAC Silver Crown race at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. He won the pole in the Radio Hospital Maxim/Hampshire and never trailed, finishing a half-lap ahead of runner-up Tracy Hines. The point battle was affected only minimally, with second-place Hines and third-place Bobby East unable to close in on Swanson going into the September 20 “4-Crown Nationals” at the Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. Hines finished second and East third at the checkered flag, with A.J. Fike fourth and Chris Windom fifth. Sixteen of the 24 starters were still running at the finish of the 100 miles.
