WESTERN MIDGETS HEAD FOR MADERA SATURDAY

The USAC Western Midget Car Series returns to Madera (Calif.) Speedway Saturday night, but point leader Garrett Hansen of Manhattan Beach, Calif. has never won at the 1/3-mile paved oval. The USAC California Pavement Ford Focus series shares the program Saturday.

Hansen holds a huge 127-point edge over Josh Ford going into Saturday's race, the 108th in USAC history at the track.

Tanner Swanson, who won last Saturday's USAC Western Sprint opener at Roseville, Calif., won at Madera in April but might have to contend with the likes of Tony Hunt, a nine-time winner at the track. Hunt could become the track's all-time leader in terms of USAC wins if he can post a 10th victory. He is tied presently tied with Davey Hamilton, who also has nine career wins there.
