If Star Wars movies taught us anything it's that as soon as the student believes he's the master, that's when things start getting really interesting. Cory Kruseman is a renowned Sprint and Midget car racer, and the skills and techniques he's amassed on the track he successfully shares with others. Kruseman runs a highly effective driving school at his hometown track in Ventura, California, at Seaside Park.

Just how proficient is the Kruser with translating his instincts so that others can comprehend? Well, good enough so that his students are the racers challenging him for the USAC Midget points title. However, as though saying I may have taught you everything you know, but I haven't taught you everything I know, Kruseman is back on top after his stellar performance in Calistoga, California, at the Louie Vermeil Classic.

Kruseman went into Saturday night's Midget showdown trailing points leader, and former student Alex Shuttle, by three points. He finished the night's USAC Western States Midget feature in second place, behind Robby Josset, yet another graduate of his school. With his runner-up finish Kruseman once again sat atop the standings heading into Sunday night's event.

Sunday night, though the master shone even brighter over his students, Kruseman put his Lucas Oil/K&N number 21 Spike Midget in victory lane. Kruseman and Shuttle battled for 25 laps, but when the hoopla settled, Kruseman was the victor. This is his second Midget win of the year thus far, not including his preliminary night win at this year's Chili Bowl Nationals.

Kruseman has now extended his points lead by 17 over Shuttle. In addition, Kruseman also has his fingerprints all over the second and third place contenders, as they are both former students.

As far as Kruseman is concerned, the circle is not yet complete, at least not for as long as he's still racing.
