WESTERN MIDGETS RESUME ACTION OCT. 27 AT LAS VEGAS; RAHE WIRE-TO-WIRE IN VENTURA MIDGET FEATURE

The USAC Western Midget Series will resume action October 27 as part of a USAC "doubleheader" at the Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada. Johnny Rodriguez, who finished seventh at Ventura (Calif.) Raceway Saturday night, emerged with a 104-point lead over Scott Pierovich in the new standings, seeking his second series title.

Chris Rahe of Placentia, Calif. led all 30 laps to win Saturday night's Ventura feature in his Rahe Racing Stealth/Fontana. He was trailed at the checkered flag by Brad Kuhn, Robby Flock, Jerome Rodela and Quintin Crye. The victory was Rahe's second in a row at the 1/5-mile dirt oval, having also won there in June. It also solidified his fifth-place point ranking.

The Las Vegas "doubleheader" also includes the Lucas Oil USAC/CRA Sprint cars on the 1/2-mile dirt oval.
