Pierson Picks Off First USAC/ARDC Win

POTTSVILLE, Pa. (July 21, 2017) – USAC Speed2 DMA Midget Champion Adam Pierson of Bradford, Vt. led all 20 laps to win Friday night’s USAC Regional Midget feature presented by ARDC at Big Diamond Speedway. The win was Pierson’s first in USAC/ARDC action as he beat new point leader Alex Bright, Trevor Kobylarz, Shawn Jackson and Ryan Greth.

Pierson started the feature on the pole and immediately jumped out to the lead and was never headed. There was only one caution on lap two, with the remaining 18 laps running non-stop. Pierson was never challenged and crossed under the checkered flag to take his first ever win at the speedway.
