RODELA ANXIOUS FOR SATURDAY'S MIDGET RETURN TO SHASTA; HANSEN & FORD NOTCH "VERMEIL" MIDGET WINS AT CALISTOGA

Jerome Rodela of El Monte, Calif. continues to pursue Garrett Hansen of Manhattan Beach, Calif. in the USAC Western Midget series point standings. Rodela trails Hansen by 162 points but he's headed back to Shasta Raceway Park in Anderson, Calif. Saturday, where he won the feature event July 3.

Hansen drove the Andy Bondio entry to victory last Saturday night at Calistoga (Calif.) Speedway, winning the 20-lap Midget portion of the "Louie Vermeil Classic." Alex Schutte led the opening lap and finished second behind Hansen, who led the last 29 laps for the win. New track record holder Shannon McQueen finished third ahead of Evan Margeson and Dennis Howell.

Josh Ford of Oxnard, Calif. led all 20 laps to win Sunday night's "Louie Vermeil Classic" Midget race at Calistoga. Josh and his Temecula Valley & Pipe/V-Mac Ellis/Fontana were trailed at the checkered flag by Hansen, Margeson, Scott Pierovich and fast qualifier Schutte.

Hansen finished fourth at Shasta in July, while Schutte led several laps and finished third.
