Late-Race Heroics Earn Opening Western World Championship Victories

Night one of the Western World Championship at Arizona Speedway is claimed by points leader Brady Bacon, officially earning him the 2021 USAC National Sprint Car Championship. Devon Henry caught up with the Oklahoma driver in San Tan Ford Victory Lane.

Bacon’s win came from a late-race pass, similar to Justin Grant, who won the USAC National Midget race just prior to the sprint car action.
