Columbus (Ohio) Motor Speedway hosts the USAC/STARS D1 Midgets this Saturday as part of a USAC racing “tripleheader” and is offering a $10 carload price for patrons.
Jim Anderson leads the D1 standings, 98 ahead of Patrick Wilda entering Saturday’s race.
The USAC Midwest and Eastern Ignite Midgets and USAC’s Mopar .25 Midgets share billing in Saturday’s program, the D1 and Ignite Midgets competing on the one-third mile paved oval and the Mopar .25s on CMS’ 1/20-mile track also located on the grounds.
Anderson is seeking his initial USAC driving title and has two wins, a second and a third in nine starts so far in 2012.
