This was McIntosh’s second victory with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League thus far in the 2021 season.
On the opening lap, Bryant Wiedeman immediately took command. Wiedeman went on to lead lap one, but Mcintosh and Brent Crews never left his tail. Hard charging Mcintosh looked to the inside of Wiedeman on lap eight to take over the top spot and never looked back. McIntosh found himself in lapped traffic and was able to pull away from the rest of the field.
McIntosh with plenty of lapped traffic between himself and the rest of the field, he had a moment of breathing room until lap 18.
The action slowed as Broc Hunnell found himself upside down in the middle of turns three and four. With 12 laps to go, McIntosh checked out and never gave Wiedeman a chance to challenge him as he found himself in a battle with teammate, Kaylee Bryson.
Cannon McIntosh crossed the finish line first and captured his second Lucas Oil POWRi National & West Midget League of the season.
