Records are meant to be broken, or at least be attainable. A number of drivers chased those records down during the 2020 USAC National season and made their own permanent mark within the sport. With that said, these drivers had already cemented their places in the hierarchy within the sport with their longstanding successes. The stats these drivers posted this season just further added to their everlasting legacies.
2. Tanner Takes Over As LOR's Winningest Silver Crown Driver
Oct 28, 2020
After watching his brother, Kody, score the victory in his Indy Pro 2000 Series debut earlier in the evening, Tanner Swanson made it an all-Swanson night, leading the final 60 circuits of the 100-lap Dave Steele Carb Night Classic en route to becoming the winningest USAC Silver Crown driver at Brownsburg, Indiana’s Lucas Oil Raceway with his sixth career triumph at the .686-mile paved oval on Aug. 21.
Tanner’s victory broke a three-way tie at the top for most USAC Silver Crown wins at LOR with his older sibling, Kody Swanson, and Mike Bliss. Tanner’s second career Dave Steele Carb Night Classic victory, and first since 2016, marked his eighth career Silver Crown victory, tying him with Chris Windom for 14th all-time.
