Midgets are making a comeback in Missouri it seems (as is traditional sprints with Valley Speedway having gotten the ball rolling, WAR coming from the formation of teams, and Casey Shuman taking WAR to a whole new level). There were several factors in the car count.

Several of the POWRI and USAC midget regulars got their start at Sweet Springs.

It a USAC show with USAC having been in Nebraska the 2 previous nights. Also a factor was that POWRI had a 2 National Tour 2 day show Friday and Saturday about 30 miles away at Grain Valley, Mo with close to 40 cars each night. (Valley usually has close to that many if not more whenever the POWRI National tour comes to Valley)

The fact that you could throw a blanket over the 1st 4 to 7 cars most of the race just goes to verify the smaller the track the better the racing. Hopefully this will turn into more midget shows at Sweet Springs.
