Nic Faas of Yorba Linda, Calif. is 41 points ahead of Robby Josett in the latest USAC Western Midget Series standings following his sixth-place finish in Saturday night's 20-lap race at Altamont Motorsports Park in Tracy, Calif. Faas hopes to protect his lead when the series resumes July 12 on the 1/3-mile dirt Santa Maria (Calif.) Speedway.

Josett finished eighth in the 20-lapper, while third-ranking driver Scott Pierovich encountered problems during his heat race and did not start the feature.
