HANSEN EYES ORANGE SHOW "REPEAT" SATURDAY

Garratt Hansen of Manhattan Beach, Calif. may have the inside track to victory when the USAC Western Midget Car Series returns to the Orange Show Speedway in San Bernardino, Calif. this Saturday.

Hansen, currently sixth in the standings, won USAC's last race there a Ford Focus feature in 2002!

It's been six years since the USAC Midgets raced at the 1/4-mile paved oval which has seen so much USAC action through the years. Sleepy Tripp won that 1999 race, as well as the previous race there, in 1992.

Troy Ruttman, who won the 1952 Indianapolis 500, won USAC's race at the Orange Show, a Stock car race in USAC's initial year of operation, 1956. Bud Clemons also won a USAC Midget race at San Bernardino during that first USAC season.

Robby Flock is the leader in the Western Midget Car Series, seeking a fifth series title and a 51st career feature victory.
