KKM Podium Sweep at Lake Ozark Speedway

Eldon, MO – When the dust settled at the conclusion of the 25-lap POWRi Lucas Oil National and West Midget League feature event at Lake Ozark Speedway, Keith Kunz Curb/Agajanian Motorsports took a clean podium sweep with Logan Seavey leading the charge over Tucker Klaasmeyer and Tanner Carrick.

On the opening lap, Tucker Klaasmeyer lead the charge, narrowly leading the field to the stripe over Kyle Craker. As the field thinned out, Tanner Carrick mounted a charge on the brim of the sweeping 1/3rd mile following a restart on lap four and took over from Klaasmeyer, only to be docked a position for dropping out of line on the restart.

With Klaasmeyer back out front and Carrick in second, Logan Seavey locked in behind the duo and found a unique line in three and four that allowed him to propel past Carrick and then onto Klaasmeyer. With five laps remaining, Seavey made his move past Klaasmeyer off turn four and powered into the lead. Coming to the checkered, Klaasmeyer and Carrick followed Seavey, resulting in a podium sweep for Keith Kunz Curb/Agajanian Motorsports and Toyota. Kory Schudy took fourth with Sam Johnson in fifth.

“Early I was struggling really bad, just fighting the racetrack,” commented Logan Seavey. “I made as many adjustments as I could with the shocks and was able to really get going there about halfway. It took a while for the race to get a rhythm and get going. It seemed like the longer the green went, the better my car got. I found the middle there and it was the only place I could get any speed through three and four. Just getting through the bumps right was key. Luckily that late yellow stacked us back up and gave me a shot at the lead. You’re kind of a sitting duck when you’re leading the race and the track changes like that and a different line comes in.”

“I felt really good in the beginning,” stated Tucker Klaasmeyer. “I felt really good once I went to the top in one and two. I was kind of a sitting duck in three and four. I thought I was on to something but it didn’t work as long as I hoped it would. Once he got around me, I started hitting the bottom on entry and it felt like it was really good at that point. Second is good. It was a good point night.”

“I think I had the lead about five, six different times and had to give it back because of yellows and the red. Then I got the lead and led 15 laps or something like that and they penalized me on the start. That’s racing. You get calls on you and sometimes you should and sometimes you shouldn’t. We have a long week ahead of us with five nights of racing. We’ll be back tomorrow night and then we head to Indy for the Indy race for two days and then Friday at Jacksonville and Saturday at Spoon River.”
