Watsonville, Calif. (July 31, 2022) – Blake Bower completed his second consecutive Northern California weekend sweep in Western Midget Racing, claiming Saturday’s victory at Petaluma Speedway. The stock production-powered Midget Series presented by Masters Design and Construction welcomed ten entries to Petaluma, competing as the undercard with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour before a healthy crowd of spectators.
Bower and winged sprint car driver Isaiah Vasquez split the heat race competition. Concord’s Adam Teves and Santa Cruz’ Logan Mitchell made up the front row starters for the 20-lap feature.
Bower started fourth but drove into the lead by the third lap on the way to his tenth win of the 2022 season. Vasquez started third but moved into second by the ninth lap of the race past Teves.
Mitchell earned a career-best third place finish when he passed Teves on lap 11. Teves finished fourth followed by Lodi’s Nate Wait.
Western Midget Racing returns to action in two weeks with racing at Watsonville’s Ocean Speedway on Friday before making the series’ second appearance at Marysville Raceway Park on Saturday night.
