ROBERTSON BRINGS MIDWEST FOCUS PAVEMENT MIDGET HOT STREAK TO DIRT SATURDAY

INDIANAPOLIS -- After wins last week in USAC Midwest Pavement Ford Focus Midget Car Series action, James Robertson will continue his season-long championship run and attempt to dethrone Tate Martz again this weekend, only this time on dirt.

The Midwest Dirt division, which suffered its third rainout of the season Sunday at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis., looks to run its second race of 2006 this Friday at Lake Odessa Speedway in Michigan.

Only 20 points separate Martz and Robertson in the Pavement Series after each won a race last week. Robertson topped the competition Wednesday at Anderson Speedway in Indiana, driving the No. 42 Robertson Drywall Beast to the stripe first ahead of Ricky Ehrgott, Martz, Mario Clouser and Adam Kramer.

Robertson closed the championship chase even more with a win Friday at Hawkeye Downs Speedway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, taking the checkered flag ahead of Martz, Tony Main, Chett Gehrke and Robbie Ray.

Jordan Noblitt leads the Dirt standings after winning the only other race of the season, at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Indiana.
