A.J. Anderson has the name, and on Friday night he proved he has the game.

Anderson may not be another A.J. Foyt, but he is a contender in the USAC Sprint Car Series nonetheless. He made sure of that with his first career win in the Larry Rice Classic at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway in the fifth race of Indiana Sprint Week.

Anderson worked his way around leader Jay Drake five laps from the end of the 30-lap event and kept last year’s 19-race winner behind him the rest of the way.

J.J. Yeley also moved around Drake late to nail down the runner-up spot. Drake finished third. Dave Darland and Bud Kaeding rounded out the Top 5.

Drake closed to within 32 points of the Sprint Car Series points standings lead, which is occupied by Darland.

In the Indiana Sprint Week standings, Darland also leads Drake, 269-247.

Other winners at the Larry Rice Classic were Jason Robbins and Jerry Coons Jr. in the qualifying races; Terry Pletch, Kevin Miller, Alex Shanks and Kevin Thomas in the heat races; and Tony Elliott in the semi-feature.

Indiana Sprint Week resumes Saturday night with the Jan Opperman Classic at the Terre Haute Action Track.
