BARBER & HARRIS STAR IN CALIFORNIA DIRT FOCUSES; SERIES RETURNS TO PAVEMENT SATURDAY

Chase Barber of Morgan Hill, Calif. and Alex Harris of Simi Valley, Calif. captured USAC California Ford Focus feature victories on paved ovals this past week. The series returns to pavement for this Saturday night's race at the Stockton 99 Speedway.

Barber picked up his first career California Ford Focus victory Saturday at Kings Speedway in Hanford, passing Harris on the 15th lap and leading the rest of the way. Harris was Friday night's winner in the 24-lap race at the Watsonville Speedway, leading all but the first lap.

Keith Janca led the first lap at Watsonville and ended up third behind Cameron Veach, while Barber and Cal Smith rounded out the "top-five." At Hanford, Barber was trailed by Harris, who led the first 14 laps, Chris Rahe, Cameron Veach and series point leader Audra Sasselli. Sasselli's series point lead dwindled to 21 heading into Saturday's event at Stockton 99 Speedway in Stockton, Calif.

Harris has won four of the five pavement races on the schedule so far, including the May 21 show at Stockton.
