Clauson-Marshall Racing Adds Powerful Lineup to BC39 Entry List

The four-driver lineup for Clauson-Marshall Racing, the winningest team this season in USAC Midget National Championship this season, leads the latest entry update for the Driven2SaveLives BC39 Powered by NOS Energy Drink on Sept. 4-5 at The Dirt Track at IMS.

Clauson-Marshall Racing has entered its four full-time USAC competitors: Tyler Courtney, Chris Windom, Zeb Wise and Andrew Layser. The team is co-owned by Tim Clauson, the father of late USAC champion and Indianapolis 500 veteran Bryan Clauson, the namesake of the showcase USAC event on the quarter-mile dirt oval at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Defending USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car champion Courtney, from Indianapolis, leads all drivers with six USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget feature wins in 2019 and has led the standings since the start of the season. His CMR teammate Windom, from Canton, Illinois, is second in the standings. Windom, the 2016 Silver Crown and 2017 National Sprint Car champion, has won his first two National Midget races over the past two months.

Wise, a 16-year-old from Angola, Indiana, is fourth in the standings with two recent victories during Pennsylvania Midget Week. He won the Stoops Pursuit race on opening night of the BC39 last year. Layser, from Collegeville, Pennsylvania, is in his first year for CMR and tops the series’ rookie points as he seeks to make his first BC39 feature start.

Michael Pickens, the winningest driver from New Zealand in the USAC National Midget history with four series wins, will drive for the RMS LLC team at the BC39 alongside teammate Thomas Meseraull, a nine-time winner in the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car series.

David Prickett, the 2012 USAC Western States Dirt Midget champ, will drive for Neverlift Motorsports in his second BC39 appearance. Trey Osborne, a veteran of Kenyon Midget racing and the Little 500 at Anderson (Indiana) Speedway, will drive the famed yellow No. 61 for Mel Kenyon, USAC’s winningest National Midget driver with 111 career victories and a four-time top-five finisher at the Indianapolis 500 between 1966 and 1973.

Those drivers join a talented list of entries, which also includes 2017 USAC National Midget champion Spencer Bayston, 2018 Jason Leffler Memorial winner Tyler Thomas, USAC National Sprint Car feature winners Brent Beauchamp and Matt Westfall, plus past USAC Western States Midget champion Shannon McQueen, among many others.
