The Indoor Racing season opened over the weekend at the PPL Center in Allentown, and Anthony Sesely scored the big $3,000 win in Saturday’s Three Quarter Midget feature event.

Sesely battled with Tyler Thompson for much of the race until a late race restart saw Thompson getting set back two spots for a jump.  From there Sesely went on to win the 40-lap feature over Ryan Flores, with Tommy Catalano, Thompson and Erick Rudolph in the top five.  Rounding out the top 10 were Andy Jankowiack, Scott Kreutter, Shawn Nye, Briggs Danner and Jeremy Haudricourt.
