RAHE EYES VENTURA SATURDAY AS WESTERN MIDGET SERIES RESUMES

Chris Rahe of Placentia, Calif. hopes to extend his 2007 USAC Western Midget Car Series point lead when the series returns to the Ventura (Calif.) Raceway Saturday night.

One of Rahe's two 2006 victories came at the Ventura oval, and he holds only a 13-point lead over Danny Stratton, who is the series' most recent winner, taking a March 24 race at Bakersfield, Calif.

Defending series champion Jerome Rodela, seeking a third consecutive title, is sixth in the current standings, 60 behind the leader, with 60 available for a Ventura victory.
