Rahe Seeks 9th Victory in '04 Finale at Irwindale

Chris Rahe of Placentia, Calif. closes out his 2004 USAC California South Ford Focus Midget Car Series championship season Thursday night at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway and will try to add a record ninth feature victory!

Rahe hopes to equal Chase Scott's record of nine USAC Ford Focus victories, posted enroute to this year's Carolina/Virginia championship. Although he has yet to win at Irwindale, Rahe has scored wins at five different tracks.

The Focuses will compete in a 25-lap feature on Irwindale's 1/3-mile paved oval prior to the 40-lap Western Sprint and 100-lap National/Western Midget races on the 1/2-mile paved oval which will complete the track's 64th Mopar "Turkey Night Grand Prix" program.

Thursday night's Irwindale events get under way with practice at 2 pm and qualifying at 4. An autograph session at 5 precedes the first race at 6:30.
