Toyota drivers competed in NASCAR, NHRA and POWRi events over the Fourth of July weekend, logging top-10 finishes in each series.
Logan Seavey held off fellow Toyota driver Cannon McIntosh to win the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League’s 38th annual Pepsi Nationals at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin on Sunday. It was the 10th-consecutive victory for a Toyota-powered driver at the Pepsi Nationals.
“That was a really fun race track,” said Seavey. “I always love coming to this place and seeing the atmosphere the fans create. I led a bunch of laps here last year and lost it on the last lap, so it’s nice to come back and redeem ourselves.”
The win is the fourth for Seavey in the last five races and marks his seventh in 11 POWRi races this season. With 20 races remaining, Seavey is just four wins shy of Christopher Bell’s POWRi single-season record of 11 victories set in 2014.
