WESTERN MIDGETS NEXT RACE AT MADERA; ZIMMERLY SCORES UPSET IN "PACIFIC COAST SPRING NATIONALS"

Nic Faas of Yorba Linda, Calif. is only seven points ahead of Scott Pierovich of Alamo, Calif. in the latest USAC Western Midget standings but he'll keep that lead for another week as the series prepares for the "Gerhardt Classic" at Madera (Calif.) Speedway. They will then be on a break until mid-May when they head to Ventura (Calif.) Raceway on May 17.

Paul Zimmerly of Ridgefield, Wash. ended up winning Saturday's "Pacific Coast Spring Nationals" USAC Western Midget race at Altamont Motorsports Park after the race was halted after 23 laps due to a tangle between Faas and Garrett Hansen. Zimmerly had taken the lead in his K & N Filters/Toyota TRD Spike/Toyota on lap 16 from Evan Margeson, who led the first 15 laps.

Michael Faccinto ended up second ahead of Daniel Bedford, Levi Roberts and Shane Mathews.

Pierovich was the first driver to exit Saturday's race, while Faas ended up 11th.
