Jerry Coons Jr. became the seventh repeat winner in the history of the legendary Mopar Belleville Midget Nationals in its 2007 running Saturday night at the Kansas oval.
Coons joins Stan Fox, Sleepy Tripp, Steve Knepper, Kasey Kahne, Dave Darland, and Josh Wise in the elite club of repeat winners. The victory by Coons was also the first ever at the Mopar Belleville Midget Nationals for the great Wilke-Pak Racers team.
The only thing that challenged the driver of the Wilke-Pak Racers/Speedway-Motors-K&N Filters/Spike/ Stanton Mopar #11 were the showers that picked up in intensity during the final five laps.
After the race Coons summed up his feelings. "It is such a relief to get this win for the Wilke-Pak team," he said.
