Coons Takes on USAC Midgets with Heffner Racing

FEBRUARY 4, 2015 – The USAC National Midget series has picked up at least one extra team for 2015, as it was announced that Tucson native Jerry Coons, Jr., will pilot an entry fielded by Pennsylvania-based Heffner Racing this year.

In addition to the full USAC Midget slate, the team will also take in selected ARDC events along with a few USAC Sprint Car cards.

A Triple Crown champion, Jerry Coons, Jr., has four career USAC National championships to his credit including back-to-back Midget championships in 2006 and 2007 and then both the Silver Crown and Sprint Car titles in 2008.

Coons, Jr., kicked off the 2015 season with a preliminary feature win at the 29th Annual Chili Bowl Midget Nationals to lock into a Chili Bowl record 12th consecutive championship feature start.

Thus 2015 USAC National Midget slate kicks off with the Kokomo Grand Prix on April 10-11.
