WESTERN MIDGETS AT VENTURA RACEWAY SATURDAY; RODELA RETURNS TO VICTORY LANE AT SHASTA RACEWAY PARK

Garrett Hansen remains comfortably in front of Jerome Rodela in the USAC Western Midget Series standings going into Saturday night's racing program at the Ventura (Calif.) Raceway, despite Rodela's feature win at Anderson, Calif. last Friday night.

Rodela, of El Monte, Calif., won Friday's 30-lap USAC Western Midget race (co-sanctioned by BCRA) at Shasta Raceway Park. Driving his Trench Shoring/TRD Toyota, Rodela passed Alex Schutte on lap nine and led the rest of the way to beat Levi Roberts, Schutte, series point leader Hansen and Alex Bowman. Tanner Swanson was the fastest qualifier.

Hansen owns five career Midget wins at Ventura, while Rodela has won there twice. USAC Midget feature winners so far this year at Ventura have been Matt Mitchell and Cory Kruseman.
