        Points Leader #7 Chase Hudson came into Indianapolis Road with a ton of momentum and started from the Pole for the Winter Lites Grand Prix. Hudson led the majority of the race with (28) laps led, but a late pit road entry penalty cost Chase the chance @ winning the only road circuit on the Lites schedule. However, #7 still managed to finish 2nd place in the Renault sponsored 2.0 for his 3rd consecutive Top 2 finish in the Series. The Top 5 finish is Hudson's 8th in just (9) career starts in the Lites Series.      

The driver that kept Hudson off the top step on the podium was the man chasing Chase in the points championship #5 Adam Blocker. Adam started 2nd on the grid, but managed to lead (22) laps in route to his 1st career Lites Series Victory. It was the first time since November 9th, 2016 that #5 was able to find victory lane in TFR. Even though Blocker was able to gain on Hudson in the points championship, it was only a measly 2pts leaving Adam still 16pts behind going into Richmond.

Coming home 3rd @ the Brickyard was #07 Kyle Strycharz. The Top 5 finish was Strycharz's 2nd consecutive in the Series and his 4th consectuive Top 10 in the League. Kyle has come a long way with his driving and it's showed over the last 6 months in Top Fuel Racing. Strycharz currently sits 13th in the Lites Series points, but it has still been a good season for the #07 when they have unloaded the car off the hauler.

So, were off to Richmond for the next installment of the Winter Lites Series, the *St. Valentine's Day Massacre*...
