CANEY, Kan. — Bryant Wiedeman wheeled his way to the front of the field and earned his second consecutive victory as the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget Leagues concluded the season at Caney Valley Speedway.
Going green-flag feature racing would find the front row of Kaylee Bryson and Gavan Boschele fly into the first pair of corners with Gavan Boschele leading the first circuit of racing action. Using the mid-to-high line of racing Boschele would appear to be the pinnacle of the field as Wiedeman, Bryson, Karter Sarff, and Brent Crews all ran within the top five in the early stages of the feature.
Stalking the leading Boschele for several laps, Bryant Wiedeman would overtake the point just before the midway using a high-side maneuver off turn two with Jade Avedisian following the leading Wiedeman past Boschele as Kameron Key and Taylor Reimer raced into the top five competitors at the halfway point.
Showing the fastest line on a tight and tricky track, Wiedeman would continue to lead as an intense battle for the runner-up position would ensue between Avedisian and Boschele. Caution flags would show keeping the field bunched as the laps winded down and into the final few revolutions of the 2021 POWRi Midget Leagues season.
Holding off all challengers to sweep the weekend, Wiedeman would put an exclamation point of his season of successes to capture the third win of his championship season.
Finding speed after the restart, Boschele would race back to finish runner-up as Crews placed third.
Restarting in the rear after an early race miscue, Bryson would race her way back through the field to place fourth as Avedisian rounded out the Lucas Oil POWRi National and West Midget League top-five finishers.
