Kyle Larson of Elk Grove, California raced his way to the lead early in Friday's 30-lap Mopar National Midget Main Event and held on through multiple caution periods late in the race to take his first USAC victory of the season. Levi Jones held the point early before Larson fought his way to the front in a torrid battle, taking the lead on lap 7 and holding on throughout despite constant pressure. Larson's late-race foes included his teammate, Bryan Clauson, who started 12th. After ascending to the top-five in the first few laps, Clauson made his way to the top-two before the team cars set sail on a long green-flag run, building an eight-second lead. With a few late cautions, Brad Kuhn picked off second in the waning laps aboard his RW Motorsports -- Rotondo Weirich #17 Beast/Fontana. Levi Roberts crossed fourth but was repositioned to the tail after failing to make weight after the race. Chris Windom took the fourth spot in his Wilke-Pak -- Speedway Motors #11 Spike/Stanton Toyota ahead of early leader Jones in his 5IVE-6IX, Inc. -- 3 Wide Networks #56 Beast/Esslinger.
