Brockton, MA – Owner Tim Bertrand and driver Randy Cabral don't want to talk
about points. "This season were coming to the races with the intent of
winning the feature," says Bertrand.

Cabral says he would prefer it if points were not compiled until the send of
the season.

Nonetheless, the respective defending champions hold the point leads as the
Northeastern Midget Association returns to Lee USA Speedway Friday night.
They will, in fact, be looking to make it two straight at the New Hampshire

The NEMA Lites will be part of the Lee agenda as well.

With a first and second two weekends ago, Bertrand has edged back atop the
owner standings with a 26-point edge on Mike Jarret.
Veteran Nokie Fornoro would like nothing better than to put Jarret back in

There have been six winners in 10 races. Cabral has four and Fornoro two
while Adam Cantor, Jeff Abold, Russ Stoehr and Greg Stoehr have one apiece.

Drew Fornoro is NEMA's all-time win leader at Lee with six. Among active
drivers, Jeff Horn has three, Russ Stoehr and Nokie Fornoro two and Randy
Cabral one
