Yeley top Earl's qualifier so far.

J.J. Yeley of Phoenix, Ariz. leads all drivers in terms of points earned so far in the 2003 Earl's Plumbing Fast Qualifier Championship standings and as a result leads two of the five battles for $5,000 cash bonuses at season's end. Last year Yeley raked in a $20,000 bonus from Earl's for his qualifying performances.

This year, each USAC National and Western Series qualifying champion will receive a $5,000 bonus from Earl's in recognition of their accomplishment. Points are earned at each USAC event based on an international system awarding the top-six qualifiers with points in the following scale: 1-9. 2-6, 3-4, 4-3, 5-2, 6-1.

Yeley stands atop the National and Western Midget qualifying standings and is second to Dave Steele in the Silver Crown qualifying points, while Jay Drake of Val Verde, Calif. leads the Sprint qualifying points and Rick Hendrix is atop the Western Sprint qualifying points.

Kasey Kahne was the fastest qualifier at last Saturday night's National/Western Midget race at Irwindale, Calif. and more Earl's Plumbing Fast Qualifying points are available this weekend in the "Border Wars IX" Sprint car races at Rossburg, Ohio Saturday night and Winchester, Ind.
