SCOTT TAKES THIRD STRAIGHT CAROLINA/VIRGINIA FOCUS RACE

SPARTA, Ky. -- For the 19th time in his career, Chase Scott of Concord, N.C. took the checkered flags for a USAC Carolina/Virginia Ford Focus Midget Car Series feature, this time on Sunday at Concord Speedway in North Carolina.

Scott, who now leads the standings by 55 points after his third straight victory this season, passed Michael Sboro on Lap 18 of the 50-lapper, and breezed to the win in an event marred by several incidents, including one on Lap 48 which claimed Sboro, third-place runner Mike Ward and fourth-place runner Aron Oakley.

"Once we got out there, we just tried to set a nice little pace, just trying to get a little advantage in case something did happen," said Scott, who drove the No. 77 Performance Research machine. "I think we kept everybody in check."

A.J. Weeks, Mark Burt, Bradley Riethmeyer and Sboro rounded out the Top 5.

The next event for the Carolina/Virginia cars is set for June 10 at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway.
