It’s All Swanson In Silver Crown


CLERMONT, Ind. — Tanner Swanson picked up his second-career Traxxas Silver Crown win and the first for car owner Mike Bowman in dominant fashion during Saturday night’s “J.D. Byrider 100” at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.

Swanson started from row-two and followed his brother Kody to a comfortable margin in the opening laps before hounding the lead before the race even hit lap ten. By lap 15, Tanner was able to clear Kody and take a lead that would never be challenged.

Swanson opened up a half-track margin as he lapped through the field, slowed only by one caution at the halfway mark. The dominating performance ended just short of lapping the sixth-place car for the Bowman/Canine Racing – Banjo Corporation No. 11 Beast/Kistler.

Kody Swanson, who also took the pole, racked up his second runner-up finish of the season in the DePalma Motorsports – Radio Hospital No. 63 Beast/Hampshire, and David Byrne recorded his best career Silver Crown finish as he rounded out the podium in the Byrne Racing – Bytec No. 40 Beast/Chevy.

Chris Windom finished fourth and Tracy Hines was fifth.
