PETALUMA, Calif. – The USAC Western States Midget Series makes a return to action on Saturday, July 18 at California’s Petaluma Speedway.

The co-sanctioned event with the Bay Cities Racing Ass’n midgets will be a non-point race for the USAC Western States Midgets and pay $600 to win and $100 to start.

No fans are permitted due to local regulations regarding COVID-19. California state protocol calls for safe social distancing practices to take place and proper sanitizing for those who are on the grounds for the event.

To limit person-to-person contact or money exchange during the night, all competitors intending to compete in the event should visit and purchase their USAC license prior to the event.

The full night of racing at Petaluma will be streamed live and on-demand.

Petaluma Speedway has hosted nine previous USAC Western States Midget Series events dating back to Shane Golobic’s 2012 victory. Maria Cofer of Macdoel, Calif., captured the victory in the most recent series event at Petaluma in 2019, her first with the series.
