SCOTT REGAINS CAROLINA/VIRGINIA FOCUS LEAD WITH VICTORY

When the USAC Carolina/Virginia Ford Focus Midget Car Series returns to competition July 3 at Friendship Motor Speedway in Elkin, N.C., a familiar face will be at the top of the points standings.

Chase Scott of Concord, N.C. will lead his fellow competitors to the 4/10-mile paved oval with the points advantage following his near wire-to-wire victory Thursday at Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory, N.C.

Scott led all but the first three laps of the event in the No. 4 Real Race Cars Beast/Ford Focus, posting the victory ahead of early leader Mike Ward, Saturday's Northeast winner Brit Andersen, defending Midwest titlist Robby Ray and Michael Sboro. The win was the 12th for Scott, now second all-time behind Josh Lakatos, who has 13 career Ford Focus victories.

Scott, who won last year's event at Friendship, took the points lead from Ray, which now stands at 17. <pre> CAROLINA/VIRGINIA FORD FOCUS MIDGET CAR SERIES STANDINGS 1. Chase Scott 342 2.
