Jake Neuman currently sits atop the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League points standings. Neuman, a New Berlin, Illinois native, does not have a feature win yet, but he does lead the POWRi Midgets in top 10's and is tied for the top spot in features started with 11.
The only competitors near Neuman are teenager Cannon McIntosh and POWRi Midget regular, Ace McCarthy. McIntosh is currently 160 points back of Neuman while McCarthy only 30 points back of McIntosh. 300 points is up for grabs each night giving anyone a chance to gain on Jake Neuman.
Only three drivers have made all eleven features so far, those drivers are Jake Neuman, Ace McCarthy, and Zach Daum. Michael "Buddy" Kofoid leads the series in wins with 4 on the year in only 8 starts.
Last weekend a good one for Ace McCarthy, he captured a top 10 and two wins. His top 10 came at Humboldt Speedway (KS) where Cannon McIntosh was the victor. McCarthy's highlights of the weekend both came at Valley Speedway in Missouri.
The POWRi National Midgets are back in action on July 31 at Jacksonville Speedway (IL) for a full weekend of racing in Illinois. After Jacksonville, they travel to Macon Speedway (IL) on August 1 and their last stop is a Lincoln Speedway (IL) on the 2nd.
