Hunt tops Western Sprint quals.

Tony Hunt was the fastest qualifier for last Wednesday night's Sprint race at East Wenatchee, Wash. and extended his lead over Michael Lewis, Wednesday night's feature winner, in the new Earl's Plumbing Western Sprint qualifier championship.

Earl's FQ points this week will be awarded Friday night (Midgets and Sprint Cars at Joliet, Ill.) and Saturday night (Silver Crown at DuQuoin, Ill.).

Rains forced postponement of USAC races at Granite City, Ill. (Midgets Saturday) and DuQuoin, Ill. (Silver Crown Sunday) and the DuQuoin race was rescheduled for this Saturday night.

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.
