Earl's points feature 4 different leaders!

Four different drivers now lead Earl's Plumbing Fast Qualifier Championship standings after last week's USAC racing events!

J.J. Yeley of Phoenix, Ariz. continues to lead the Weld Racing Silver Crown and Western Midget Car FQ standings, but Jay Drake, Tracy Hines and Tony Hunt also find themselves atop Earl's rankings this week.

Hines vaulted to the top of the National Midget Car FQ standings after posting the fastest qualifying time at Lincoln, Neb. Tuesday and Belleville, Kans. Friday. Thursday's fastest Belleville qualifier was Alex Harris.

Drake sits atop the National Sprint Car Earl's points, although Hines was Sunday's fastest qualifier at Salem, Ind.

Earl's points will be distributed to fast qualifiers this week at Springfield, Ill. (Weld Racing Silver Crown Series, Saturday) and Mansfield, Ohio (National Sprint Cars and Midgets, Sunday).

This year, each USAC National and Western Series qualifying champion will receive a $5,000 bonus from Earl's in recognition of their accomplishment. Points are earned at each USAC event based on an international system awarding the top-six qualifiers with points in the following scale: 1st-9. 2nd-6, 3rd-4, 4th-3, 5th-2, 6th-1.
