Evans Repeats In Santa Maria TQs; Johnson 2nd Again!

West Evans of Moorpark, Calif., who recorded his initial USAC WorldCom TQ Midget Car victory in July at Bakersfield, Calif., returned to victory lane Sunday night at Santa Maria (Calif.) Speedway in the first series race in seven weeks.

Evans passed series point leader Walt Johnson on the second lap and led the final 19 laps to win the 20-lapper over Johnson, fast qualifier Greg Edenholm, Steve Lambert and Chuck West.
