WYSONG, WATERS EYE "WESTERN" INVASION SATURDAY

Jimmy Wysong and Jim Waters, separated by just 16 points, will continue their battle for the 2005 USAC/SLVRA Young Automotive Group Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Championship this Saturday, but will have their hands full at the 3/8-mile paved Rocky Mountain Raceways oval in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Valvoline USAC Western Sprint Cars are headed to the track to compete in Saturday night's racing program, which afford points toward both series championships. That means Wysong and Waters will have to battle the likes of Tony Hunt, Kody Swanson, Mike Murgoitio and Tim Barber for victory in the 40-lap main event.

Wysong scored a spectacular last-lap victory in last Saturday night's 40-lapper, taking advantage of traffic to get by Waters on the final turn of the final lap! Dave Fitzgerald finished third, followed by Mel Andrus and Jim Campbell.

Five drivers led Saturday night's race, including Rick Pardee, Fitzgerald, Andrus, Waters and finally Wysong.
