If the term “resilience” ever needed an image attached to it in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, it would be apt to include one of Logan Seavey and Abacus Racing after their victorious performance on Thursday night at Pottsville, Pennsylvania’s Big Diamond Speedway.

The team’s outing one night earlier at New Jersey’s Bridgeport Motorsports Park proved to be among the most challenging of the year. An engine failure forced them into a backup car where they proceeded to finish an undesirable 15th, dropping them to 11th in the USAC Eastern Storm standings and also shrunk their overall USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship point lead to its closest margin since February.

Further demonstrating the resolve of Sutter, California’s Seavey, in his only previous Big Diamond appearance one year earlier, he missed out on transferring into the main event, making Thursday’s race his first feature start at the 3/8-mile dirt oval.

This time around, he stalked Mitchel Moles for the first half of the 30-lap event before making his stride to the outside of turn two to get by for the lead, and ultimately, his sixth USAC National Sprint Car victory of the year in his Abacus Racing/MPV Express – CG CPAs – Indy Custom Stone/DRC/Stanton Chevy.

“These guys bounce back so well,” Seavey said in praise of his crew led by Ronnie Gardner and Kirk Simpson. “I’m confident when I get in it, so it doesn’t really deter me. These guys make sure it’s ready to go and on kill every time I’m in it. I feel like every time we have a bad night, we come back and redeem ourselves or win or have a great night.”
