BURDETT EYES POINT LEAD AT SALT LAKE CITY SATURDAY

Defending Young Automotive USAC Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Champion Ryan Burdett will be out to regain the 2008 series point lead when the series resumes Saturday night at Rocky Mountain Raceways.

Burdett, of West Jordan, Utah, trails JoJo Helberg by two points as a result of qualifying and heat race placings April 26, although Burdett won the series-opening 40-lap feature race.

Saturday's program concludes with a 40-lapper on the 3/8-mile paved oval. Burdett will be aiming for his fifth career RMR victory after winning once in 2006, twice last year and in the 2008 opener.

Two-time former Rocky Mountain Sprint Champ Jim Waters is also expected to be among top contenders in Saturday's program.
