Canadian Ryan Litt of Lyons, Ontario leads the USAC Midwest Ford Focus Midget Car Series to Red Hill Raceway for this Saturday night's racing program on the 3/8-mile dirt track in Sumner, Ill.

Litt leads Tate Martz by 16 points, despite the fact that Martz recently strung together a series-record four straight feature victories. Litt won the series opener at Anderson, Ind. and has added three seconds and three other "top-10" finishes in seven starts.

Martz' only "top-10" finishes in seven races have all resulted in victories, so he'll be tough to beat if running at the finish Saturday.

Martz finished third and Litt ninth in last year's inaugural USAC Ford Focus race at Red Hill won by Indiana Champion Robbie Ray. A 25-lap feature event is on tap at Red Hill following heat races.

Saturday night's Carolina/Virginia Ford Focus race at Friendship Motor Speedway in Elkin, N.C. was rained out.
