While a past USAC Eastern Storm champion was in the midst of capturing yet another victory in a career year with the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship, another wheelman was busy locking up his first career USAC Eastern Storm title on Sunday night at Kutztown, Pennsylvania’s Action Track USA.

USAC National Sprint Car point leader Logan Seavey (Sutter, Calif.) was triumphant at Kutztown’s 1/6-mile dirt oval, winning the feature in a photo finish by a scant .043 second margin over Briggs Danner.

Meanwhile, with his third-place result in the 40-lap finale, Mitchel Moles (Raisin City, Calif.) earned the USAC Eastern Storm championship, his first and his Reinbold-Underwood Motorsports team’s second after previously capturing the 2019 crown with driver C.J. Leary.

While Seavey wasn’t quite in the mix to replicate his 2022 Eastern Storm championship this time around, his 17th career USAC National Sprint Car feature victory elevated him into 35th place all-time alongside Jerry Coons Jr., Jim Hurtubise and Bud Kaeding.

Seavey’s seventh win of the season in his Abacus Racing/MPV Express – CG CPAs – Indy Custom Stone/DRC/Stanton Chevy has him atop the season long USAC National Sprint Car standings.  However, he was unable to add to his advantage with the race featuring a differentiated points structure.

“I was using all the tools inside the cockpit to make myself better,” Seavey explained.  “I just kept trying to tell myself to keep driving harder.  I feel like the harder I run, the more grip I make.  There at the end, I started to struggle there.  I could hear him, and I heard him up on the fence into three.  As good as I was crossing him over, I knew I was in trouble if I didn’t really get up there and hit the wall really good to get a run down the front stretch.”

In crunch time during the final five lap stretch, Seavey occupied the low to middle lines while Danner was getting himself wound up on the top side of the racetrack.  The 40th and final lap was no exception, but this time, Seavey slid from the bottom of turn three all the way up to the outside wall.  Danner took corrective measures and turned down underneath Seavey off turn four.  However, Seavey had just enough to edge Danner at the line by the distance of roughly half a front wheel.

“I feel like Briggs was a bit faster for most of the race,” Seavey admitted.  “But for the most part, I could hear him for most of the race and I was just doing everything I could to hold him behind me.  He threw a lot of sliders at me, but luckily, that cushion off four was treacherous.”
