FORT WAYNE, Ind (21 Alive) - Justin Peck, a 15-year-old from Monrovia, Indiana, won the 50-lap midget feature Saturday in the Rumble in Fort Wayne at the Memorial Coliseum Expo Center, becoming the youngest winner in the event's 16 years.

Peck and Friday night winner Russ Gamester exchanged the lead twice in the closing laps before Peck moved in front for good with two laps to go. Mike Fedorcak, driving for Tony Stewart, finished second, followed by Grant Galloway, Billy Hulbert and Angola native Derek Bischak.

Gamester, his engine apparently misfiring, spun in turn four on the final lap.

Bobby East was 17 when he won in 2001.
