VENTURA UP SATURDAY FOR CALIFORNIA DIRT FOCUS MIDGETS; FACCINTO WINS AT MADERA

INDIANAPOLIS -- The USAC California Ford Focus Dirt Midget Car Series continues Saturday at Ventura Raceway in California as the 1/5-mile track hosts its fifth straight series event.

Four different winners -- Keith Janca, Cameron Veach, Bobby Michnowicz and Thomas Gray -- have graced Victory Lane in those four outings, binding together a close run for the point championship as the series reaches the halfway point.

Michnowicz, who also owns a victory at Bakersfield Speedway in California -- the only other track on the schedule -- leads Janca by 20 points and Veach by 31 markers.

Michael Faccinto won last Saturday's 30-lap feature for the Pavement division, leading the final 10 laps after taking the lead from Levi Roberts, who finished second. Trailing were Tim Skoglund, Jace Meier and Laura Poorter.

By virtue of his victory and fast qualifying attempt, Faccinto broke a tie with point leader Chris Veach and holds an 18-point lead over Skoglund heading into the June 17 race at Altamont Raceway Park in Tracy, Calif.
