Unprecedented is a word you don’t often hear in racing. After all, if you’ve been around for a while, you see records that may seem untouchable, or so many of us thought. When Kody Swanson and DePalma Motorsports teamed up in 2013, they basically created their own record book, one of which Silver Crown participants will be chasing for years to come. Saturday Sept 22nd at Eldora Speedway, Swanson completed his fourth USAC Silver Crown season championship in one of the most dominant seasons ever. Highlights and records include: capturing the title by 82 points, never trailing in the points at any time during the season, one of the most incredible win streaks this summer with five straight wins, breaking a 32-year old record of four by Jack Hewitt. The last of those five wins at the historic Salem Speedway was the ultimate. Kody drove to his 24th career victory in the Silver Crown series, again breaking a record by Hewitt for all time wins that was held for almost thirty years.
