EARL'S STANDINGS JUGGLED -- 7 POINT RACES THIS WEEK
HINES, EAST & WISE LEAD "NATIONAL" LISTS
The 2005 Earl's Fast Qualifier standings were juggled somewhat by results of USAC races held last week and seven more Earl's point-paying events are slated this week as USAC activity remains at a fever pitch.

Bobby East, Dave Steele, Josh Wise, Brian McClish, Jerome Rodela, Damion Gardner, Tate Martz, Alex Harris, Chase Scott, Jasiel Randolph, Nick Wean and Stephanie Stevens all lead their respective series FQ standings.
Earl's points will be up for grabs this week in events at North Vernon, Bloomington, Putnamville and Haubstadt, Ind. (Valvoline National Sprint Cars), Ventura, Calif. (Western Midgets), and Bakersfield, Calif. and Lakeville, Ohio (Ford Focus Midgets).
Points are awarded at each USAC event based on an international system awarding the top-six qualifiers with points in the following scale: 1st-9, 2nd-6, 3rd-4, 4th-3, 5th-2, 6th-1. When qualifying is not held, points are awarded based on a system of lineup points earned in the preliminary heats.
Each USAC National, Western and Ford Focus Midget Car Earl's Plumbing FQ Champion will be honored at USAC's Champions Night ceremony in Indianapolis. The National and Western FQ champs will receive $5,000 each, while the Ford Focus FQ champs will each receive $1,000.
