USAC WESTERN MIDGETS THIS SATURDAY MARCH 30
The USAC Western Midgets invade Bakersfield (Calif.) Speedway Saturday night and a new series point leader is nearly assured. At present Bryan Clauson sits atop the standings, but Kody Swanson is just four points back and Rico Abreu is only 15 back entering the Bakersfield race. Swanson, of Kingsburg, Calif., wheeled Bob Rosen’s Espresso Beast/Fontana to victory in Saturday night’s race at Madera (Calif.) Speedway. The race was co-sanctioned by BCRA. David Goodwill, who led the first seven laps before yielding to Swanson, finished second ahead of Darrin Snider, Frankie Guerrini and Kevin Morris. Last year’s Bakersfield Midget races produced a couple of surprise winners, Troy Rutherford and female driver Michelle Decker!
The Motor City IMCA Northern SportMods, DC’s RV Center Mini Stocks and NMRA ¾ Midgets round out the racing action. Gates open at 4:00pm with racing starting at 6:00pm. General admission is $15.00 Kids 6-12 $5.00 5 and under FREE.
