Un official Kokomo TQ Feature re-cap -48 lead & 69 in 2nd in the beginning laps, 69 took lead Setser 12s going high line in 3rd place and gaining didn't take long and Setser took the led and was lapping cars. Hernandez spun two different times going into turn 2 trying to run the high line, he was gaining momentum but the spin put him back on the tail and after spinning again on another lap he went out but was quickly working his way to the front before spin. 19 and 11L spun out together going into turn 2 . Speidels car not performing and he went out , 83 pulled into the inside of track with 3 laps to go, 18B spun out with 2 laps to go, Two laps to go top ten line up 12s 96 4 48 12 14 19 33 10 4T4. On last lap turn four 10 & 4T4 were getting close, 10 sideways from throwing into to turn wide open to avoid someone ducking under him and ended up limping across the finish line and 4T4 spun to keep from crashing into 10.

Race Fans I can't begin to tell you what a super nice person Jason Setser 12s is. His driving ability speaks for itself through the incredible stats he has chaulked up in his life time motorsports driving career. You have got to make it a point to go to his race pits after a race and say, "Hi' to this amazing driver. Listen to his interview and you will get an inside look into this man's heart. He is racing for a cure, and all of his winnings with the 12s are given to the Peyton's Angels The Cure Starts Now Foundation. He won is 1st feature of the UMRA King of the TQ Midgets 2016 season at the opening season race at Brownstown Speedway in March. He has had fast times heat wins and Trophy dash wins this season.

Former Kenyon Midgets Champion Cole Fehr was spotted hanging out in the TQ Pits at the Kokomo Speedway this week! Maybe he is getting the TQ fever too if we are lucky! Cole drove The American Widow Project, HD Appliance Doyle Racing TQ #91 in the Rush County Fair Race in June. He is tall so we need to find him the perfect ride to fit in. He filled in for Doyle's #91 due to Driver Devin Fairchild taking a race day off to be with his family for his son's ballgame
