TULSA, Okla. — In the first USAC on-track action in 75 days, Cannon McIntosh recorded the fastest single lap in Thursday’s USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget practice session at Port City Raceway.
McIntosh turned a 9.459-second lap of the eighth-mile track in preparation for the weekend doubleheader.
Although this weekend marks the series’ debut at the track, McIntosh, has extensive experience at the track in micro sprints and finished second in the Sooner Shootout Midget event a year ago.
McIntosh, aboard his Keith Kunz-Curb-Agajanian/TRD – Mobil1 – JBL Audio/Bullet By Spike/Speedway Toyota, set the pace in the second group of practice where most of the 28 drivers who took a time set their fastest speeds of the night.
Five different teams were represented in the top-six fastest times with McIntosh followed by Clauson-Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney in second, McIntosh’s KKM teammate Daison Pursley in third, RMS’ Thomas Meseraull fourth, Tucker-Boat Motorsports’ Chris Windom fifth and Petry Motorsports’ Kevin Thomas Jr. sixth.
Tanner Thorson, winner of two of the first three USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget events in 2020, was 17th, recording only six laps in session three.
