USAC’s Closest Finishes of 2020

USAC'S CLOSEST FINISHES OF 2020

By: Richie Murray - USAC Media

Speedway, Indiana (December 2, 2020).........Cannon McIntosh earned the closest feature finish of the 2020 USAC National season in a compiled list that fully encompasses all 60 events run this past year.

McIntosh's last lap, last corner victory over Chris Windom had a difference of just 0.056 sec. between the two at the finish line of the September 4 USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget feature at Missouri's Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex.

In fact, midget races took the top-four spots on the list of the closest finishes of the season.  Meanwhile, the closest one-two finish of the 2020 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car season ranked fifth overall, an event won by Brady Bacon on July 4 at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Ind. with an interval of 0.170 sec. separating he and runner-up C.J. Leary.  Third-place finisher Justin Grant was 0.172 sec. behind the leader at the checkered, also making it the closest 1-2-3 finish in USAC this year.
Funny enough, Bacon tallied the closest USAC Sprint finish and also the most dominating win in USAC this year, both at the same track - Lincoln Park Speedway!  His 3.964 sec. edge on September 12 at the 5/16-mile dirt oval was the largest difference between first and second fr all USAC series in 2020.

Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway led all tracks by placing three of its races inside the top-ten closest finishes of the USAC season.  Tanner Thorson's 0.065 sec. Indiana Midget Week victory over Kyle Larson there on June 21 was the second closest overall finish of the year.  Kyle Cummins' two Sprint Car Smackdown prelim victories at Kokomo on consecutive nights in late August ranked 7th and 9th overall.

Tanner Swanson's record sixth USAC Silver Crown triumph at Brownsburg, Indiana's Lucas Oil Raceway in August ranked 22nd overall at 0.646 sec.
