It’s a long way from El Paso, Texas, to Humboldt, Kansas — about 860 miles to be exact — but the road from his first start to his first USMTS win Friday night was a lot longer for Carlos Ahumada Jr.

Kofoid Goes 4-For-4 In POWRi Midgets

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Buddy Kofoid is four-for-four in Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League action this season.

Kofoid claimed his second feature in as many nights and his fourth in a row on night two of the eighth annual Turnpike Challenge at I-44 Riverside Speedway.

Kofoid picked up a heat race win and topped it off with another trip to victory lane.

At the drop of the green flag, teammate to Kofoid, Brenham Crouch took the lead. Crouch led the first last and the field set in behind him. Crouch maneuvered himself around the track choosing the top side. A caution on lap 10 brought the field back together.

On the track with 11 laps to go, Kofoid challenged Crouch to take the lead and stuck the slide job. Kofoid went on to lead lap 19.

Traffic closed in on the leaders and Crouch never left Kofoid’s tail, but Kofoid claimed the victory.

Crouch, Emerson Axsom, Ryan Timms and Jake Neuman rounded out the top five.

The finish:

Feature (30 laps): 1. 67-Buddy Kofoid  2. 97-Brenham Crouch  3. 15-Emerson Axsom  4. 85T-Ryan Timms 5. 3N-Jake Neuman  6. 71K-Dasion Pursley  7. 72-Sam Johnson  8. 08-Cannon McIntosh  9. 01-Bryant Wiedeman  10. 32-Trey Marcham  11. 52-Blake Hahn  12. 19M-Ethan Mitchell  13. 86-Brent Crews 14. 7U-Kyle Jones 15. 49-Joe B Miller  16. 91T-Tyler Thomas  17. 21-Emilio Hoover  18. 27BJ-Jake Bubak  19. 7M-Chance Morton  20. 9E-Caden Englehart  21. 71-Kaylee Bryson  22. 10-Rees Moran  23. 85-Jerry Coons Jr 23. 21KS-Trey Gropp
