Mike Thompson has been on a roll in the 600 Micro Sprint division and he kept that momentum rolling on Friday night in the Hyper Racing/ Hoosier Tire Winged 600 Micro Sprints. When early race leader Daniel Bair slowed with a problem, Thompson was the race leader and never looked back on his way to his first winged win at the speedway and his second overall victory. Jesse Maurer started 12th and worked his way to second before the checkered fell. Brandon Heist made a rare winged start and finished third. Randy Kunkle Jr. and Brian Kramer were the top five finishers.
