Flock, Ercse share Perris podium after USAC wins.

Robby Flock of Murrieta, Calif. and J.J. Ercse, of Lakewood, Calif. captured USAC feature victories in Saturday night's "doubleheader" racing program at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway. Flock won the 30-lap USAC Western Midget Car race, while Ercse triumphed in the 20-lap Ford Focus Midget Car race.

Flock caught early leader Alex Harris on the 13th lap and led the rest of the way in his Fontana Automotive/Sander Engineering Fontana/Stealth. Jerome Rodela finished second ahead of Harris, Mike Leslie and Jimmy Christian.

Flock's victory boosted him to within 31 points of series point leader Shane Scully, who did not compete at Perris and continues to recover from a concussion suffered at Belleville, Kans. a week earlier. The series continues August 24 at Santa Maria (Calif.) Speedway.

Ercse passed Garrett Hansen on the 12th lap and went on to win the 20-lap Ford Focus Midget Car feature at Perris, beating Hansen, Darren Hagen, Dallen McKenney and Todd Hunsaker. Hunsaker continues to lead the series standings and has a 59-point lead over Phil Goodwine entering the August 24 Santa Maria Speedway USAC "doubleheader."
