WESTERN STATES SERIES FACCINTO AGAIN IN KINGS "REBELS TQs at VENTURA, SPRINT CARS AT CARSON CITY SATURDAY

Monte Faccinto of Hanford, Calif. added another "hometown" victory Saturday night at Kings Speedway to bolster his lead in the USAC Regional Rebel Sprint Car standings. He leads Davey Pombo by 27 points going into an August 1 race at the 3/8-mile dirt oval.

Faccinto led all 20 laps to beat Mike Faria, Shane Travioli, Andy Ferris and Pombo in the race which was shortened from its original 30-lap distance to 20 laps due to a multi-car accident. Craig Stidham, fast qualifier Ricci Faria and Garrett Ishii all flipped during the melee and Stidham was transported to a local hospital for a precautionary check.

Jeff Gardner leads the USAC "Western States" Sprint Cars to Silver State Raceway in Carson City, Nev. for this Saturday night's racing program on the 1/4-mile paved oval. A 30-lap feature caps the action. Gardner leads Rick Williams by 61 points going into the event.
