WESTERN MIDGETS RETURN TO MADERA SATURDAY; HANSEN EXTENDS SERIES LEAD WITH VENTURA VICTORY

Garrett Hansen of Manhattan Beach, Calif. continues to lead the Western Midget series standings heading into this Saturday's race at the Madera (Calif.) Speedway, co-sanctioned by BCRA. In two previous appearances at Madera, Hansen has finished fifth and seventh.

Hansen won Saturday night's 30-lap race at the Ventura (Calif.) Raceway, extending his lead in the series to 129 points over Jerome Rodela. Hansen wheeled the Andy Bondio entry to the win over Josh Ford, Cory Kruseman, Robby Josett and Shannon McQueen.

Hansen has never won at Madera, but Rodela won a race at the 1/3-mile paved oval in 2002.

The Swanson family of Kingsburg, Calif. has virtually owned the Madera oval so far this year, Kody winning twice and Tanner winning twice. Tanner ranks fifth and Kody eighth in the latest series points.
