Kofoid Conquers Fayette, McIntosh Is Speedweek Champ

BROWNSTOWN, Ill. – Buddy Kofoid earned his seventh win of the season and 14th of his career with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League on the final night of Illinois Speedweek at Fayette County Speedway Sunday evening.

Cannon McIntosh, alongside his Dave Mac Motorsports crew, was crowned the Illinois Speedweek champion to end the ninth annual Illinois Speedweek.

The 24-car field set up for 30-laps around the fast Fayette County Speedway, with Brent Crews and Bryant Wiedeman lined up on the front row. When the green flag waved cars scattered and chose their best line to run. Crews led the field around the top side as cars battled for position behind him. 

Kofoid conquered the tough track and took the lead from Crews after a restart on lap six. Kofoid, Crews and McIntosh separated themselves from the rest of the field after a long green flag run. Even in lapped traffic Kofoid couldn’t be stopped as he picked up the win on the final night of Illinois Speedweek.

Crews followed along in second and McIntosh rounded out the podium.

McIntosh claimed the Illinois Speedweek title thanks to one win and a solid set of podium finishes.
