POINTS UPDATE: Avedisian Takes Second, McIntosh’s Lead Shrinks After Doe Run, SIR

Keep up with the latest movers in the chase for the 2023 Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota championship.

LATEST RACE(S): Doe Run Raceway (July 21); Southern Illinois Raceway (July 22)

CURRENT POINTS LEADER: Cannon McIntosh’s advantage was cut nearly in half over the weekend, shrinking from 121 points down to 67. The 20-year-old Oklahoman started 15th both nights, taking a DNF (20th place) after a crash in Friday’s Feature but was able to rebound with a charge all the way to fifth place on Saturday.

Jade Avedisian (+2): A runner-up finish after leading 22 laps of Friday’s Feature and a redemption run to Victory Lane for the second time this season Saturday night vaulted the 16-year-old from Clovis, CA, up two spots to second place in the standings. In doing so, she chopped her points gap to leader McIntosh down to 67 points – a 113-point swing from where she was coming into the weekend, down 180 points.

Gavin Miller (-1): Despite two top-10 finishes – fifth-place finish on Friday and a 13th-to-10th run Saturday – Miller dropped one spot in the standings to third. Still, the 16-year-old from Allentown, PA, stayed consistent and took is now the lone driver with the most top-10 finishes thus far (11).

Chase McDermand (-1): A rollover in the Feature at Doe Run on Friday sent McDermand loading up with a 14th-place result, followed by a seventh-place finish on Saturday. Despite the rebound, the 22-year-old Illinoisan dropped from third to fourth in the points standings.

Taylor Reimer (+1): Reimer posted back-to-back top-five finishes for the first time this season – fourth at Doe Run and third at Southern Illinois – moving her up into sixth in the Series standings.

Chance Crum (-1): Crum’s struggles continued over the weekend, posting back-to-back 16th-place finishes, dropping him one spot to seventh in the standings.

Hayden Reinbold (+1): Despite posting a DNF (21st place) on Friday and a 17th-place finish Saturday, Reinbold advanced one spot in the standings.

Kyle Jones (+1): Entering his first Xtreme Outlaw Series races since May, Jones showed the Midget racing world he’s still a contender, charging from 20th-to-11th on Friday before leading the first 22 laps of Saturday’s Feature at SIR and finishing fifth. It’s worth noting he recorded these two finishes in two different cars over the weekend, moving the native Texan back up into the top-10 of the standings.
