Saturday, the Western/Utah Focuses race at Rocky Mountain Raceways in Salt Lake City and the Western Ford Focuses and Young Guns are in action at Bakersfield (Calif.) Speedway.

Gerhardt led all 30 laps to win the Western Ford Focus race, while Walmer passed Brandon White on lap 21 and led the last five laps to win the 25-lap Young Guns feature. Fast qualifier Gerhardt was trailed by Garrett Peterson, Tim Skoglund, Walmer and Cody Thompson. In the Young Guns race Walmer was followed to the stripe by White, Thompson, Shon Gooden and Courtney Atkinson.
