The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series made its first visit to Cowtown Speedway for the Midget Stampede. Over 60 Midgets competed Friday and Saturday to qualify for the $5,000 feature Saturday night. Two time USAC National Champion Dave Darland, from Lincoln, Ind., started on the outside front row and managed to hold off Rico Abeu, No. 67k, when Rico made contact with Casey Shuman, No. 2x, on the last lap, to take the win. This was Darland's third victory in the POWRi Midget series. Rounding out the top five were Tyler Thomas, No. 71t, Brad Kuhn, No. 71x, Darren Hagen, No. 3, and Zach Daum, No. 5d.
