WEAN OPENS NORTHEAST FOCUS CAMPAIGN WITH WIN

INDIANAPOLIS - Milford, N.J. native Nick Wean opened USAC's Northeast Ford Focus Midget Car Series 2006 season up with his second career victory Saturday at the Waterford (Conn.) Speedbowl.

Wean, driving the family-owned No. 78 Johnny's Truck Stop entry, led all 20 laps of the event, besting a field of 16 other cars. Trailing Wean -- last year's third-place points finisher -- were Ryan Osborne, Ryan Smith, Sean Carman and Jesse State. Carman and Smith won eight-lap heat races.

Seventeen of the 18 cars that showed up started the feature, tying a mark set three times last season.

The next Northeast race is scheduled for May 13 at Oswego (N.Y.) Speedway.
