National Midgets Return to Angell Park for 36th Annual Pepsi Nationals


Belleville, IL - Sunday, July 9th will kick off the 36th Annual Pepsi Nationals at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin highlighting the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, joined by the Badger Midget Series. One of midget racing's crown jewels, the historic 1/3rd mile will draw some of the sport's biggest names for competition. The 36th Annual Pepsi Nationals will pay $3000 to win, $500 to start for the 30 lap main event, with $200 to non-qualifiers. At the conclusion of the event, everyone in attendance will be treated to the famous Angell Park fireworks show.

The 36th Annual Pepsi Nationals will also be broadcasted on MAVTV, tape delayed and aired at a later date. MAVTV is available nationwide.

Thorson charged from the 12th position to capture second, while defending POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League champion Zach Daum rounded out the podium.
