The POWRi National Midgets race for the second time this season Sunday at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. Cornfest 30 is co-sanctioned by Badger and USAC.

Rico Abreu of Rutherford, Calif., is expected to enter all three events. The driver of Keith Kunz Motorsports’ No. 67 Bullet-Toyota has won three of the past four POWRi Midget features, including the previous race at Sun Prairie on July 15.

Abreu has had a spectacular rookie season in Midgets. He has seven top-three finishes in 10 POWRi events.

Friday’s event at Lincoln will be the 21st of 29 for the POWRi Midgets and 13th of 19 for the POWRi Micros.

Andrew Felker of Carl Junction, Mo., has a 210-point lead, 2,210-2,000, over Chett Gehrke of Broken Arrow, Okla. Brett Anderson of Belleville, Ill., is third with 1,830.

Anderson returned from a five-race hiatus due to illness to finish third in the previous feature at Belleville, Ill.

Danny Stratton of Brownsburg, Ind., won the POWRi Midget feature at Lincoln on June 22, with Colten Cottle of Kansas, Ill., second and Bubba Altig of Mechanicsburg, Ill., third.

Joe B. Miller of Millersville, Mo., has expanded his lead in the 600cc Outlaw Micros championship over Aaron Andruskevitch of Riverton, Ill., to 465 points, 1,760-1,295. Felker is third with 1,290.

Thirteen year-old Justin Peck became the youngest winner of a POWRi Micro race at Lincoln on June 22. Miller finished second and Andruskevitch was third.

Saturday’s show at Macon is the ninth annual Dana Godfrey Memorial, which pays tribute to the late wife of venerable Midget chassis builder John Godfrey. The founder and owner of Spike chassis in Brownsburg, Ind., has been active in POWRi since its inception in 2005 and is one of POWRi’s strongest supporters and partners.

Dave Darland won last year’s Dana Godfrey Memorial.Other previous winners of the Godfrey Memorial have been Mike Hess in 2003, Donnie Lehman in 2004, Tracy Hines in 2005, A.J. Fike in 2007, Brad Loyet in 2008-09 and Brad Kuhn in 2010.
