INDIANAPOLIS – Tracy Hines and Darren Hagen will square off for the 2013 Honda USAC National Pavement championship Saturday at Columbus (Ohio) Motor Speedway, but they should keep an eye on challenger Bobby Santos III in their quest for the title.
The series concludes in CMS’ Season Finale Fun Fest and Hines and Hagen are tied for the point lead entering the final race. Santos is just 24 points behind with 74 points available.
The Columbus program also includes the final race for the Honda USAC Midwest and Eastern Ignite Midget series.
Hines won at Columbus in 2010, while the last USAC National Midget race at CMS was won by Kyle Hamilton in 2011. Thus far in 2013 Hines has two Pavement midget triumphs in USAC competition, while Hagen has one.
