Kyle Hamilton won Saturday night’s 100-lap Tony Stewart Classic USAC Midget race at the Lincoln Tech Indianapolis Speedrome.

Driving the Curtis Motor Sales/Hamilton Racing Spike/Esslinger, Hamilton led the final 87 laps after passing Billy Wease on lap 14. He built a half-lap lead before the 75-lap intermission, then declined the option of restarting last to aim for the $10,000 Shepherd Insurance Tailgunner Bonus.

Hamilton claimed the $5,000 winner’s share to beat fast qualifier Grant Galloway, Kevin Studley, Ross Rankine and Indianapolis 500 starter Gabby Chaves.

Chaves accepted the Shepherd Insurance bonus and restarted last on the lap 75 resumption but was only able to get back to fifth place before the checkered flag flew.
