SWANSON TAKES POINT LEAD TO REDWOOD ACRES SATURDAY SCORES 1ST USAC VICTORY AT ROSEBURG

Kody Swanson of Kingsburg, Calif. leads the USAC Valvoline Western Sprint Car Series to Redwood Acres Raceway in Eureka, Calif. this Saturday. He has an 11-point lead over former series leader Brad Bumgarner, with Tony Hunt and Tim Barber close on their heels going into the first USAC Sprint race at the 3/8-mile paved oval.

Swanson caught Hunt on lap 31 at the Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Ore. and led the final 10 laps to win Saturday's 40-lapper over Hunt, Barber, Bumgarner and Michael Trimble. Jeff Montgomery was the fastest qualifier.

Hunt led the first 30 laps before slipping behind Swanson.

Barber is coming off a successful two weeks, finishing third May 28 in the famed "Little 500" in Anderson, Ind., then following that up with a fifth at Salt Lake City, Utah May 31 and another third at Roseburg. Barber won the Western Sprint Car opener at Boise, Idaho in April.
