POINT LEADERS FALTER AT STOCKTON, EYE MADERA 10/1;
RESCINO SCORES SURPRISE 100-LAP WIN AT STOCKTON

Valvoline USAC Western Sprint Car point leaders Kody Swanson and Tony Hunt were the first to exit Sunday's 100-lap "Fred Gerhardt Open Wheel Classic" at Stockton (Calif.) 99 Speedway. Swanson fought oiling problems, while Hunt was involved in a four-car tangle on the frontstretch. The result is that Swanson's point lead dwindled and Hunt slipped to third in the standings.

Swanson leads Mike Murgoitio by 17 points, Hunt by 33 and Stockton fast qualifier Tim Barber by 34 going into an October 1 race at Madera (Calif.) Speedway.

Nick Rescino Jr. of San Francisco, Calif. captured the Stockton 100-lapper, leading the final 87 laps after passing Jason McCord on lap 14. McCord led the first 13 laps but was third behind Michael Trimble at the checkered flag. Jeff Gardner and Shauna Hogg rounded out the "top-five" and Murgoitio finished eighth.
