(POWRi) to create the POWRi BCRA Lucas Oil Midget Series. For the first time ever a POWRi sanctioned race will take place in California Friday night at The Dirt Track and Kern County in Bakersfield, CA.
Friday night kicks off a fresh season of Midget action for the POWRi BCRA Lucas Oil Midget Series as it marks the first of 21 races all over the state of California offering up a nice mix of dirt and pavement facilities.
