Following their least successful run of the season a mere 24 hours earlier, Logan Seavey and Abacus Racing were champing at the bit for the opportunity to get a do-over during Thursday night’s Circle City Salute finale at Indianapolis, Indiana’s Circle City Raceway.

The dynamic duo of Seavey and Abacus made a complete turnaround from one night to the next, discarding Wednesday’s 11th place struggle with a most dominant victory on Thursday at the 1/4-mile dirt oval, leading the final 30 laps in their CG CPAs – Indy Custom Stone – Forecheck Marketing/DRC/Stanton Chevy.

In turn, Seavey (Sutter, Calif.) became just the second driver to earn multiple USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship feature wins at Circle City following last September’s photo finish victory. On Thursday, the only other multi-time winner was the driver Seavey passed to take the cake as he zipped past on lap 11 of the 40-lap main event to earn a $10,000 payday.

For Seavey, it’s already his fifth USAC National Sprint Car win of the year, a rare feat for any driver in the 69-year history of USAC to achieve by this juncture. In fact, it’s the earliest in the season (May 23) that any driver has picked up his fifth win of the year since Larry Dickson on May 10, 1970. Furthermore, Seavey became the first driver since Bryan Clauson in 2016 to win five races within the first 14 events of the season.

Furthermore, Seavey moved up another rung on the all-time USAC National Sprint Car win list. With his 15th career triumph, Seavey moved into 40th all-time alongside Bobby East, Cory Kruseman and Brian Tyler. Needless to say, Seavey loved today more than yesterday.

“Yesterday, it was really bad all day; we sucked,” Seavey said without reservation. “It was probably one of our worst nights all together. We went back to the drawing board and did a lot of stuff different. I had a bunch of speed on the cushion, but at this place, if you want to race and pass people, you’ve got to be good everywhere. We went to work and put a whole night together that went really well. We timed in well, and we could run the cushion really hard and then it got really slick and clean. I could peel off and run through the middle and carry speed, which is what I struggled with last night. I could cut the middle, but I didn’t have any grip or speed.”
