Female driver Jessica Clark of Westlake Village, Calif. sits atop the USAC Western Ford Focus standings entering this Saturday’s race at Shasta Raceway Park in Anderson, Ind. Trevor Hunt of Liberty, Mo. leads the USAC Western Focus Young Guns standings as they too head for Shasta.
Clark and Hunt scored their initial USAC feature victories in Saturday night’s Western USAC Ford Focus/Focus Young Guns “doubleheader” at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway’s Bullring.
Clark, of Westlake Village, Calif., passed Jimmy Moon on lap two and led the final 29 laps to win the Ford Focus feature over Brandon White, Ricky Bowers, Moon and Tim Skoglund. Hunt, of Liberty, Mo., led all 20 laps of the Focus Young Guns race to beat Brodie Kostecki, White, Bowers and Christine Breckenridge.
Rain claimed two USAC Ford Focus events last week. The Midwest opener is now slated May 25 at the Bryant Heating & Cooling Indianapolis Speedrome after last Friday and Saturday’s rainouts at Gas City and Montpelier, Ind.
