NEWTON, N.C. -- Brit Andersen of Branford, CT and Mike Ward of Charlotte, NC, visited victory lane for the first time in their midget career's Saturday night at Hickory Motor Speedway in the Real Race Cars Inversion Challenge Twin 25-lap features for the USAC Carolina/Virginia Ford Focus Midget car series presented by Calico Coatings.

Andersen, who captured the first 25-lap race (points race) started 10th for the second race (non-points) but could only move up to a sixth place finish and was not able to capture the challenge of coming from 10th to win the race. Lucas Oil, who sponsored the inversion bonus money, will spread the inversion challenge pay out evenly through the field.

Chase Scott set a Ford Focus series track qualifying record with a lap of 14.950 seconds.

Aron Oakley of Greenburg, IN led the first 17 circuits in the opening 25-lap feature before Andersen passed him going into turn three. He led the final eight laps to claim the win.

"This is awesome," Andersen exclaimed in victory lane. "My dad and I along with the Real Race Car crew have been working real hard all year and we knew we were getting close, but this is just awesome to win my first race in a midget."

Race car driver Brit Anderson of Branford was confident he’d reach victory lane sometime this year, his first season in a regional midget car series. On Sept. 18, his confidence paid off.

Anderson won the first race of his midget career at Hickory Motor Speedway in Newton, N.C. in the Real Race Cars Inversion Challenge Twin 25-lap features for the USAC Carolina-Virginia Ford Focus Midget car series.

In the first 25-lap feature, Aron Oakley of Greenburg, Ind., led the first 17 laps before Anderson passed him going into turn three. Anderson continued to pull away and led the final eight laps to claim the win.

"This is awesome," said Andersen, 16, a junior at Branford High, who races on weekends. "My dad and I along with the Real Race Car crew have been working real hard all year. We knew we were getting close (to a win), but this is just awesome to win my first race in a midget."

Robbie Ray moved up to third by lap 10 and passed Oakley on lap 22 to take second place. Oakley finished third.

The win gave Anderson nine top 10 finishes overall at the time.
