MIDGETS RETURN TO MADERA SPEEDWAY FOR "SUPER SATURDAY;" STOCKTON TRIPLEHEADER RAINED OUT

It's "Super Saturday" this weekend at Madera (Calif.) Speedway, one of USAC's most active ovals. On tap are USAC's Western Midget and California Pavement Ford Focus Midget Series and supporting events.

Garrett Hansen of Manhattan Beach, Calif. continues to enjoy a healthy point lead over two-time series runner-up Scott Pierovich (2007-2008), but that lead could diminish Saturday if Pierovich has a good night.

Rain forced cancellation of last Saturday's scheduled USAC "tripleheader" at the Stockton (Calif.) 99 Speedway. The Western Midgets return there October 10.

It could be "Swanson Night" if this year's previous results are any indication. Brothers Tanner and Kody Swanson have won the two USAC Western Midget races at the track so far, Kody holding down sixth-place in the current series standings.
