Kings Victory Stretches Ebberts Point Lead

Danny Ebberts of Canyon Lake, Calif. stretched his USAC WorldCom Western Midget Car point lead Saturday night, winning the 30-lap feature at Kings Speedway in Hanford, Calif. He now leads runner-up Alex Harris by 59 points going into an October 27 event at Irwindale (CA) Speedway.

Ebberts caught leader Shane Scully on the 24th lap and led the final seven circuits on the 1/3-mile dirt track in his Systech Racing/Lucas Oil/Grove Lumber Esslinger/Autoresearch. Scully finished second ahead of Josh Wise, Robby Flock and Harris. Harris led the first 10 laps and Scully led the next 13 before yielding to Ebberts, who was also the night's fastest qualifier.
