Audra Sasselli of Fresno, Calif. tied Denise Bennet on Saturday as USAC's all-time female feature victor and took the California Ford Focus Midget Car Series point lead in the process at Ventura, Calif.

Sasselli, who now has three USAC feature wins -- all of which have come in Ford Focus competition -- won the 20-lapper and now leads Robbie Whitchurch by four points going into this weekend's festivities.

Trailing Sasselli's No. 17 David Zoriki-owned Clawson Motorsports-Myrel Sasselli Custom Hay Roadsiding Stealth/Ford Focus were Rob Kershaw, Jet Davison, Keith Janca and Chase Barber. Bobby Michnowicz, who led the points going into the race, dropped to eighth after not competing in the race.

Sasselli, who also leads the California Ford Focus Pavement Series, leads the dirt-track contingent Friday to Watsonville (Calif.) Speedway and Saturday to Kings Speedway in Hanford, Calif. It will be the first trip to both tracks for the series this season.
