As the laps clicked off, Swanson closed the gap and finally claimed the lead for the final time on Lap 79. It was a five-lap battle for supremacy, and Swanson’s experience and determination paid off. He ultimately secured his seventh career Rollie Beale Classic victory, making it his fifth consecutive win at Toledo Speedway with the champ cars dating back to 2018.
