WAYNE CITY, Ill. — Thomas Meseraull has proven adept at adapting to new situations and new rides quickly.

For this Sunday’s USAC National Midget event at Wayne County Speedway, the San Jose, California driver returns to a familiar situation as he climbs aboard the Amati Racing No. 66 for the Jason Leffler Memorial.

This season alone, Meseraull has won twice on the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car trail for two different teams, yet he has yet to make a USAC Midget start in 2017.

In fact, neither Meseraull or Amati have competed in a USAC National Midget event since the 2016 season opener at the Southern Illinois Center in Du Quoin, Ill.  There, they scored a strong third-place finish in the 50-lap feature.

However, Meseraull and Amati attained much of their success together on the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car tour where they partnered up for four feature wins during the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

Meseraull is still seeking his first career USAC National Midget win.  He won a non-points, special event at California’s Irwindale Speedway in 2004 and is the owner of four career USAC Western States Midget victories.  He hasn’t finished outside the top-ten in each of his last four series starts, three of which resulted in top-five finishes.
