Ventura, Calif. – 2021 Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction champion Blake Bower continued his hot hand in the series, driving the No. 9 Orland Public Auto Auction Spike Chassis to his 11th career win on Saturday night at Ventura Raceway.
The first stop at Ventura this season gave Bower his third win of the year on three different tracks in just four attempts to start the season.
Heat races were split by young micro sprint graduates with Drake Edwards driving the Klein No 86D to victory while Sage Bordenave drove Kevin Felkins’ No. 35x to win the second heat race.
A six-car invert placed Kyle Hawse on the pole for the 20-lap feature. Hawse led the way for the first half of the feature. A multi-car incident on lap ten ended the race for Cory Brown and Tyler High.
Bower and Drake Edwards moved in on Hawse on the restart, with Bower going on for the victory.
