KAPLAN-HUNT POINT BATTLE RESUMES AT SALT LAKE CITY; TANNER SWANSON 1ST IN ALTAMONT SPRINT

Rocky Mountain Raceways in Salt Lake City, Utah hosts Saturday's "shootout" between Lucas Oil USAC Western Sprint Car point leaders Ryan Kaplan and Tony Hunt, while Ryan Burdette will try to maintain his lead in the USAC/SLVRA Young Automotive Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Series.

Kaplan and Hunt enter Saturday's race separated by just two points, while Burdett holds a 39-point edge over Jim Campbell.

Hunt finished second and Kaplan 10th in Saturday's Lucas Oil Western Sprint race at Altamont Motorsports Park in Tracy, Calif. Tanner Swanson of Kingsburg, Calif. won Saturday's 50-lap USAC/CASA Altamont feature in his Keith Williams Eagle/Chevy, beating Hunt, Greg Anderson, JoJo Helberg and Nick Green. Green led the first 25 laps and Swanson led the final 25.

Burdette is the only driver to repeat as a feature winner this year at RMR. Kody Swanson, Anderson and Jim Waters have also won there.
