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

LATEST RACE(S): Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway (Aug. 8); Action Track USA (Aug. 9); Path Valley Speedway (Aug. 11).

CURRENT POINTS LEADER: Cannon McIntosh has retaken the points lead after finishes of seventh, fifth and 10th during Appalachian Midget Week. His nearest opponent, Jade Avedisian, held the advantage in the standings coming into the five-race stretch – only three of which were contested – but was set back after taking a DNF at Clyde Martin and was unable to recover, opening the door for McIntosh to take the lead again by seven points with 10 races left on the schedule.

MOVERS
Jade Avedisian (-1): After her fourth win of the season and a third-place result over Ironman 55 weekend, Avedisian held the points lead for the first time since April, coming directly into Appalachian Midget Week. She began with a rough start at Clyde Martin, rolling over and bringing out the red flag twice in the Feature, knocking her out of the points lead. A 10th-place run the next night at Action Track and a runner-up at Path Valley rebounded her back into contention, now only seven points behind McIntosh in the standings.

Chase McDermand (+2): The newly crowned Appalachian Midget Week champion has surged from fifth, 176 points behind the leader, up to third, where he now sits 74 points out of first place. McDermand swept the first two races of the week before wrapping his first week in Pennsylvania up with a third place at Path Valley to seal the miniseries title. He’s now tied with McIntosh and Avedisian for most Feature wins this season at four.

Gavin Miller (-1): Miller dropped from third to fourth in the standings, following finishes of sixth, fourth and fifth during Appalachian Midget Week. McDermand edged ahead of him by five points after his stretch of three-straight podium finishes, but Miller is still contention, now 79 points from the top of the standings.

Zach Daum (-1): Despite finishes of second, eighth and fourth last week, Daum dropped one spot in the standings down to fifth. He did, however, gain 51 points on leader McIntosh, jumping from 154 points back coming into the week to 103 currently.

Hayden Reinbold (+1): Reinbold jumped from eighth up to seventh in the standings after Appalachian Midget Week following his first top-five of the season at Clyde Martin, an 11th place at Action Track and a sixth-place run at Path Valley.
