by Troy Hennig


Marysville, CA (July 18, 2017) – The Might Midgets of the Bay City Racing Association (BCRA) are headlining point race No. 12 this Saturday night, July 22nd. This traveling cast of open wheel super stars will feature close competitive racing at the ultra-fast quarter-mile dirt track known at Marysville Raceway. The B.C.R.A. features an extensive history dating back to 1939.

The B.C.R.A midgets are led by Maria Cofer from Macdoel, CA. This standout 18-year-old female is the current overall point leader with 558 points. The B.C.R.A combines the dirt track and pavement races into an overall champion. The series also has separate dirt track and pavement points. The dirt track portion of the points is led by Bakersfield standout Cory Elliot with a total of 307. Redding’s Alex Schutte holds down the second spot with 257 points. Danny Carroll sits in the third spot with 239 points and is only three points ahead of rising superstar Michael Faccinto. Coffer rounds out the top five with 223 points.

Front grandstand gate will open at 5 PM. The pit gate for the competitors will open at 3 PM. Racing is scheduled to begin around 6:30 PM. Fans can purchase grandstand tickets and find more information at www.marysvilleraceway.com

Joining the B.C.R.A Midgets are the wingless sprints, economy sprints, super stocks and midget lites.

Cody Spencer has opened a huge lead in the wingless standings. He has been the dominate car of late. The real battle is between Bruce Morrow and Paul Vandenburg for second. Only one-point separate these two.

Winged Economy Sprints continue to be led by Adam Ermolenko. He holds a hefty 61-point edge over Cameron Haney Jr.

James Castleberry continued his winning ways the last event the Super Stocks raced at and holds an eight-point cushion over Mike Walko.

Emilee Lindgren picked up her first career win in the Midget Lites division back at our track on June 17th. She will look to repeat this Saturday night. Joining her will be Scott Kinney and Dakota Albright.
