INDIANAPOLIS – The first look at the entry list for the second annual Driven2SaveLives BC39 powered by NOS Energy Drink was released by USAC officials on Monday.

Six weeks out from the event, 26 cars are already entered for the mega event on The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sept. 4-5.

Among those entered for the two-night NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series extravaganza include 2017 series champion Spencer Bayston from Lebanon, Ind., aboard a car for owner Brodie Hayward.

Bayston and Tyler Thomas are the two past series winners signed up for the event thus far.

Thomas has shown his prowess in USAC’s AMSOIL National Sprint Car division as well, capturing a victory at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway in September of 2018.

He’s joined by a pair of drivers who’ve won in a USAC Sprint Car but are still seeking their first National Midget wins under USAC sanctioning in Brent Beauchamp and Matt Westfall.

Past USAC Western States Midget champion Shannon McQueen is entered, along with West Coast wheelman Cody Swanson, a two-time USAC Western States Midget winner in his career.

Meanwhile, Aaron Leffel is a two-time champion on the USAC Speed2 Midwest Thunder Midget trail, and Justin Peck has won in midgets and has also been a victor with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions on the sprint car side.

Teams can file their entries for the event at, where they may also purchase pit and parking passes for the two-night event.

With the expansion of grandstand seating around the quarter-mile dirt oval, teams purchasing pit passes for the BC39 will be able to add a grandstand seat.

Five-hundred reserved seats in Tier 3 (lower level) have been made available for purchase at a discounted rate until Aug. 15. Unsold tickets at that time will be made available at public prices and may sell out.

Oklahoma’s Brady Bacon was victorious in the inaugural BC39 in 2018, collecting $15,000 for the victory, which featured a USAC National Midget Series event record of 110 entries.
