SHENANDOAH SHOWERS FORCE CAROLINA/VIRGINIA FOCUS RESCHEDULING; FRIENDSHIP UP SUNDAY

INDIANAPOLIS -- Rain forced the postponement of another USAC Carolina/Virginia Ford Focus Midget Car Series event, rescheduling the season finale a week after this Sunday's scheduled events.

Friendship Motor Speedway in Elkin, N.C., which was to host the season finale Sunday, will now showcase the Focus Midgets in a tight battle which could severely alter the points chase or decide the championship.

Chase Scott of Concord, N.C. leads Robbie Ray of Davenport, Iowa by 59 points heading to Elkin. Scott three weeks ago took his first career dirt race in the National Ford Focus Midget Car Series championship at Lima, Ohio, but Ray followed suit a day later by winning at Anderson, Ind. Ray also claimed the final race of the USAC Midwest Ford Focus Midget Car Series season Sunday at Anderson. Scott has won the last three Focus features he's made.

The pair has combined to take over half of this season's Carolina/Virginia points races. Ray won the only other Friendship Focus race this season, while Scott finished third.

Friendship relinquished the season finale when rains late last week forced the postponement of Saturday's twin 25-lappers at Shenandoah Speedway in Shenandoah, Va. The 3/8-mile track will now host the races Oct. 22. Scott won a Shenandoah feature in September, the last time the series competed.
