The Noblesville, Indiana racer won the Thanksgiving night Midget Race and was never seriously challenged during the 98 lap contest. “We battled some mechanical issues early,” said Clauson. “But the crew was able to get the car fast for the main event.”

Clauson drove the Marc DeBeaumont owned Beast/Ford-Esslinger No 11 and led all 57 laps of the event. “It was a pretty cool night,” he said. “But the crown jewel was getting my name on the Aggie Trophy.”

Clauson raced more than 200 events at 82 different tracks in 24 states during the racing season. His victories have also earned him a 51 point lead for the 2009 National Midget Driver of the Year Championship.

“Our K&N filters give us additional performance on the track,” he said. “They protect our engines from track debris and are part of our winning package that helps us make it to the Winner’s Circle.”

Clauson’s next event will be the Bull Ring Midget Nationals in December at Kansas City’s Kemper Arena. In 2010 he’ll kick off his season at the Annual Chili Bowl Nationals.
