MARTZ WINS MIDWEST FOCUS RACE AT ANDERSON; XENIA RAINED OUT

INDIANAPOLIS -- Tate Martz is quickly pulling away from USAC Midwest Ford Focus Pavement Midget Car Series competitors in the point standings in his attempt to score a third series championship.

Martz, of Rushville, Ind., won last Wednesday's 30-lap race for the series at the Anderson (Ind.) Speedway -- which completed a program started May 24 -- by leading 25 laps. He paced the field for the first 23 before Craig Haack took command, but regained the spot on Lap 29 and led the final two laps.

Martz was looking to make it three series victories in four races last Friday at Kil-Kare Speedway in Xenia, Ohio before rain interfered, causing officials to reschedule the event for July 28.

The next USAC Midwest Ford Focus race is scheduled for the Pavement division, which will run July 8 on the quarter-mile track inside Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Ky.
