SWANSON, WYSONG LEAD SPRINTS TO RMR MONDAY
BARBER WINS 50-LAP STOCKTON MAIN EVENT

Kody Swanson's Valvoline/USAC Western Sprint Car Series point lead stands at 45 points going into next Monday night's race at Rocky Mountain Raceways in Salt Lake City, Utah. His lead expanded last Saturday night as a result of the race held at Stockton (Calif.) 99 Speedway.

Jimmy Wysong continues to lead the Young Automotive Group Rocky Mountain Sprint Car standings entering Monday's event at Salt Lake City, 32 points ahead of defending series champion Jim Waters.

Tim Barber of San Francisco, Calif. won the Stockton 50-lapper, which was interrupted early by an accident involving defending series champion Tony Hunt, who escaped serious injury. Hunt's throttle stuck entering turn one and his car mounted the wall, then exited the oval. He was treated for a sore tailbone and released.

Barber passed Bob Beck on lap 11 and led the rest of the way in his Bos Sheet Metal/Riverside Motorsports Park Eagle/Chevy. Michael Trimble was second followed by Jeff Gardner, Swanson and Cody Veenstra. The victory left Barber third in points, only four behind Hunt and just seven ahead of Mike Murgoitio.

Monday's race at Salt Lake City offers points toward both the USAC Valvoline Western and the Young Automotive Group Rocky Mountain Sprint Car Championships.
