SHENANDOAH TWIN 25'S UP NEXT FOR CAROLINA/VIRGINIA FOCUS REGULARS

INDIANAPOLIS -- A pair of 25-lappers Saturday at Shenandoah (Va.) Speedway could decide this season's USAC Carolina/Virginia Ford Focus Midget Car Series championship.

The series continues for the first time since Sept. 10 at the same 3/8-mile paved track, which Chase Scott of Concord, N.C. scored his 15th career Ford Focus victory, a 35-lap feature. Scott will be one of the favorites for this weekend's twin races, and could leave the track with enough points to defend his series championship. Scott had nine wins last season and has five in Carolina/Virginia competition this season.

USAC's National Ford Focus Midget Car Series champion Robbie Ray of Davenport, Iowa is the only other driver who could upend Scott's chance at a repeat. With this weekend's twin features and the Oct. 16 race at Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory, N.C., Ray looks to make up 59 points.

The Shenandoah races take the place of two dirt races which were scheduled for Sept. 24 at Stanley, N.C. and Oct. 22 at Rocky Mount, N.C.
