WESTERN MIDGETS "OFF" UNTIL JUNE 13; KRUSEMAN "HOME-TOWN" HERO IN VENTURA MIDGETS

The USAC Western Midget Series is idle until June 13 when action resumes at the Madera (Calif.) Speedway. The co-sanctioned USAC/BCRA event will be the third for USAC at the 1/3-mile paved oval this season. The Swanson family of Kingsburg, Calif. has swept the three previous races this year at Madera, Kody winning twice and Tanner once.

Cory Kruseman won Saturday night's 30-lap USAC Western Midget race at his home track, the Ventura Raceway. He led twice for a total of 16 laps, taking the lead for the final time from Jerome Rodela on lap 23.

Rodela finished second ahead of Ricky Shelton, Brian Camarillo and Josh Ford.

Kody Swanson trails Garrett Hansen by 133 points in the latest series standings going into the Madera race.
