“It took us five tries to get through the first lap because so many people were crashing in the main event,” said Swanson. “By lap five I moved up to 11th place. I was happy with the car and it was handling better than it had all day.”

Swanson was hit from behind on turn four and nearly spun out. “The car that hit me brought out the caution and put me in 12th position on the restart,” said Swanson. “I was determined to try and finish the race inside the top ten. When we got the green my brakes locked up. I started pumping but nothing was happening. At that point my goal was to keep the car off the wall, but I hit the wall at turn one. The damage was significant enough to retire me from the race. I kept the rookie of the year point’s lead but slid back to 9th in the overall points standings.”

Swanson moved from karts to the Legends series this year. “It was an awesome season and a great challenge,” he said. “I want to thank K&N Engineering for supporting me this year. The K&N RC-3510 air filters performed flawlessly the entire season and were very easy to service using the K&N filter cleaning kit. I look forward to a great season off and the challenges that are ahead.”
