Rodela returns to Stockton Saturday seeking repeat.

Jerome Rodela of El Monte, Calif. will try to protect his slim six-point lead over 1999 USAC Western Midget Car Series Champion Marc DeDeaumont of Clayton, Calif. when the USAC Western "Regional" Midget Car Series resumes this Saturday night at the Stockton (Calif.) 99 Speedway.

Rodela won the 2002 series opener at Stockton June 29, beating DeBeaumont and Cliff Servetti to the checkered flag. That win also earned Rodela valuable points toward this year's Western Midget Car Championship and he ranks fourth in that series behind point leader Shane Scully.

A 30-lap feature event caps Saturday's Midget Car program on the 1/4-mile paved Stockton oval.
