EL CAJON, Calif. -- It's Saturday night at Cajon Speedway, an aging field of dreams where the air is thick with exhaust and the smell of burnt rubber. Ron Kelly is sitting in his seat at the top of the bleachers, cheering his favorite drivers as they roar around the track. Amber Harmon is in the pits preparing to climb into her Ford Pinto, which she started racing this year after her husband was sent to Iraq.

It's Saturday afternoon, and the living is good at Cajon Speedway. A smattering of fans diligently climb the chipped but sturdy bleachers to get early-bird seats for optimum viewing. The concession stands are already catering to the pit crews, drivers and other volunteers who drop by between practice rounds. This is really what weekends were made for: Stock-car racing. This is the day of the week that boils the blood of the avid stock-car fan. Drivers live for it. Fans live for it.

It is difficult enough to drive a 3,300-pound NASCAR Busch series stock car 300 miles at speeds of 195 mph on a big track like California Speedway. But how about immediately afterward jumping into a passenger car for a 31-mile trip from Fontana to Irwindale, then racing 50 laps in a 900-pound open-wheel midget car at speeds approaching 125 mph on a tiny half-mile oval? That is the scenario Saturday for Kasey Kahne, former U.S. Auto Club midget car champion and now a Busch series driver.

The path for most people in racing -- drivers, car owners, sponsors and promoters -- is to move up as they succeed, from karts to midgets to late model stocks or sprint cars to Indy cars or NASCAR. Not Steve Lewis. He started with midget cars, won eight U.S. Auto Club national championships with midgets and now wants midget car racing to take its place among the more successful motor racing classes.
