(PETERSEN MEDIA- Stockton, CA )- Saturday night in Stockton, CA the curtain was raised on the 2019 pavement edition of the new POWRi BCRA Lucas Oil Midget Series, and it was Mark Maliepaard celebrating in victory lane when the checkered flag flew.

Starting his night out by timing in second fastest in qualifications, Maliepaard would prove to be the class of the field. The feature event would see a great battle between himself, Chad Nichols, and Frankie Guerrini.

While the trio put on an exciting show, in the end it was Maliepaard grabbing the first pavement win of the year followed by Nichols, Guerrini, JR Williams, and Robert Carson.
