The 35th edition of Indiana Sprint Week was a story about consistency — and Justin Grant and TOPP Motorsports were the most consistent during the July 22-30 mini-series.
With nine races scheduled, rain reduced the series to a six-event schedule with six different drivers getting to victory lane in AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Championship competition.
Grant earned his lone victory of the series at Kokomo Speedway, but he was also the only driver to finish in the top five in all six events.
The California native earned his first Indiana Sprint Week title in his 13th season. It was also the first Sprint Week Crown for team owner Kevin Birchmeier.
“In the past, I’ve tended to fall apart in these deals when the going got tough,” Grant said. “I’ve worked really hard on that and tried to be more prepared this year than I’ve been in the past and I feel like it’s paid off.”
