NATIONAL MIDGET SERIES LEFFLER, DRAKE BATTLE FOR MIDGET POINT LEAD AT WINCHESTER

Jason Leffler of Long Beach, Calif., fresh from capturing the 1998 USAC Silver Crown Championship, looks to bolster his bid to repeat as USAC's National Midget Champion with a top finish in Sunday's 25th "Sammy Sessions Memorial" at the Winchester (Ind.) Speedway.
