In 2007 Jonathan Eilen became the first ever Midwest Tour event winner. He took home the victory at his home track of Elko Speedway. Along with becoming the first winner in the history of the series, he was crowned the 2007 Rookie of the Year. In 2010 Eilen hit the turn two wall at Hawkeye Downs Speedway and suffered a broken back, sidelining him for the remainder of the season. Jonathan and his team returned in 2011 and had a rebuilding season. In 2012 Eilen returned with a vengeance and became the 2012 ARCA Midwest Tour Champion. The past few seasons have been full of ups and downs for Jonathan and his team, but they are ready to hit the track to fight for another championship in 2016.
