Brownsburg, Indiana (October 18, 2011) — Dillon Welch, of Carmel, Indiana, claimed a podium finish in the Nine Racing midget and placed third in the Alex Pruett Memorial USAC Mopar D1 Midget finale at Toledo Speedway, in Toledo, Ohio, on Saturday, October 15.

Dillon began the event strong as he qualified third fastest of the 11 drivers. He finished fourth in his eight-lap heat race.

For the 25-lap main event, Dillon started in fourth position and was able to move up one position to earn his third-place finish.

“Glenn Martin and Krieg Poland gave me an awesome car at Toledo,” said Dillon Welch. “Every time we were on the track our times improved. I wish I could have gotten off to a better start in the feature, because the car was very good.”
