PITTSBORO, Ind. (May 29, 2019) – Brian VanMeveren had an action-packed Memorial Day weekend racing with the Midwest Sprint Car Series in Indiana. The weekend started off on Friday night at Bloomington Speedway.
VanMeveren was making his first trip back to the red clay quarter-mile oval since taking a nasty tumble there on April 12th with the USAC National Sprint Car tour. A fifth-place run in his heat put the St. Paul, Minnesota driver in the B-main but a second-place effort safely put VanMeveren in the main event.
In the feature, VanMeveren worked his way up to a respectable 14th finish.
“It was good to go there and just get that wreck out of my mind,” he said. “The next time I go there I shouldn’t have any problem putting the car up on the top and being comfortable up there.”
On Saturday, VanMeveren followed the MSCS tour to Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville.
After timing in on an ultra-slimy track, VanMeveren moved from fifth to fourth in his heat, which put him one spot shy of a transfer spot. VanMeveren finished second in the B-main and crossed the checkers in 13th after a race of attrition in the feature.
VanMeveren was set to wrap up the weekend Sunday at Kokomo Speedway, but rained washed out the evening’s event.
VanMeveren was also in action on Wednesday, May 22nd with the USAC National Sprints at the big, fast Terre Haute Action Track. The driver of the VanMeveren Law / Wingo Brothers Racing No. 24 came home in 14th.
“I really enjoy racing on that big half-mile. We were moving forward but needed more laps,” said VanMeveren. “The car was pretty good overall.”
The VanMeveren Racing No. 24 still has a couple of spots open for 2019 marketing partners! Reach out to Brian at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
