East takes Milwaukee Silver Crown race win
Bobby East of Brownsburg, Ind. left fans with a memorable performance Saturday after coming from the back of the field on a restart at lap 35 to mow down the field in the Milwaukee 100 and claim the victory in his Joe Gibbs Racing Oil Beast/Ford. East led the first 20 laps but was moved back two positions for jumping the original start. Shortly thereafter he was moved to the rear of the field for another infraction and then the fireworks started in the form of his charge to the front. Tanner Swanson led the restart at lap 21 but East climbed to the “top-10” by lap 38. He was ninth on lap 39, eighth on lap 41, seventh on lap 43 and sixth on lap 46.

At half-way he moved to fifth, then took fourth one lap later. He passed Jerry Coons Jr. for third on lap 56 and caught runner-up Kyle Larson on lap 68 for second. Pole winner Larson spun bringing out the yellow flag for a restart and on lap 75 East passed Swanson for the lead. At the checkered flag he was nearly a half-lap ahead of Coons, who passed Swanson on lap 98. Swanson was third, ahead of Bobby Santos III and Jacob Wilson. Coons emerged with the series point lead going into next Friday’s Casey’s General Stores USAC Triple Crown” 100 at Iowa Speedway.
