Dalton Armstrong of New Castle, Ind. and Daniel Bedford of Brentwood, Calif. are the respective USAC Regional Midget point leaders entering this week’s action. Armstrong leads the Regional Midgets into Wednesday night’s “Michael Lang Night” tripleheader at the Indianapolis (Ind.) Speedrome, while Bedford is atop the USAC/WOMS Midget standings going into Saturday night’s regional race at Berlin Raceway in Marne, Mich.
Armstrong has a 22-point lead over Dillon Welch in the Regional points and Bedford’s point lead over Armstrong in the USAC/WOMS standings is five points.
Armstrong has scored victories at Columbus, Ohio and the Speedrome in 2010 and Bedford was the winner when the Regional/WOMS Midgets visited Berlin Raceway June 12.
Wednesday’s Speedrome events salute the seven-time USAC champion Michael Lang, whose 53 career wins are the most by any driver in history at the track which has hosted more USAC races than any other in America.
