WESTERN MIDGETS AT BAKERSFIELD APRIL 17; HENRY POSTS UPSET WIN IN VENTURA 30-LAPPER

The USAC Western Midgets take this week off while preparing for their next event, at the Bakersfield (Calif.) Speedway April 17.

Jonathan Henry of Stockton, Calif. wheeled his Ken Graunstadt machine to victory in Saturday night's 30-lap USAC Western Midget race at the Ventura Raceway. He passed Matt Mitchell on lap seven and led the rest of the way to beat Mitchell, Josh Lakatos, Cory Kruseman and Robby Josett.

Kruseman, Mitchell and Josett won heats and Randi Pankratz won the semi.

Alex Schutte, who was 10th at Ventura Saturday, won the last USAC Western Midget outing at Bakersfield's 1/3-mile dirt oval, last August.
