MAY 23, 2017... Starting ninth, Ryan Bernal (Hollister, California) grabbed the lead from Kyle Hirst at the white flag and won last Saturday’s “Chris & Brian Faria Memorial.” The $1,500 USAC West Coast Sprint Car triumph at Tulare’s Merle Stone Chevrolet Thunderbowl Raceway was Bernal’s fourth victory of the campaign. Hirst, fast qualifier Austin Liggett, Richard Vander Weerd, and “Hollywood” Danny Faria Jr. rounded out the top-five finishers.

Polesitter Tristan Guardino led the opening four laps before “The Milkman” Joe Stornetta Jr. grabbed the top spot. Looking for his first series win, Stornetta dominated the event until suffering heartbreak and front end damage on lap twenty-six. Hirst, who won the April 22nd Peter Murphy Classic, inherited the lead but slower cars became a factor. Bernal got the better of the traffic and thrilled the crowd to earn the popular win.

Racing Keith Ford’s #73 Edgewater Construction / Sun Valley Ag Transport XXX, Ryan Bernal captured his series leading 31st main event. After qualifying tenth out of twenty-two racers, the Hollister driver won the 10-lap Extreme Mufflers Heat Race #1 and earned his second BR Motorsports / King Racing Products Hard Charger / “Best Passing Job” honors. At press time, the two-time USAC Western Classic Champion has reclaimed the point lead with one Woodland Auto Display Fast Time Award, three heat race victories, six top-10 finishes, and 59 feature laps led to his credit.

After leading two laps late in the race, Kyle Hirst (Paradise, California) settled for second after winning the companion King of the West / NARC feature. Driving Dennis Roth’s #51T Roth Enterprises / KW Suspensions KPC, Hirst was second quick in time trials and ran third in his heat race. In limited starts, the three-time King of the West Champion is nineteenth in points with one feature win, two top-10 finishes, and 22 feature laps led on the year.

Austin Liggett (Tracy, California) ran third in the Faria Memorial after starting sixth. Piloting the family owned #83 Excel Environmental / Lucas Oil entry, the 2012 Rookie of the Year earned his second career Woodland Auto Display Fast Time Award and ran second to Ryan Bernal in his heat race. To date, the 2012 Rookie of the Year is tied with Jake Swanson for fourth in points with one feature win, one, two heat race victories, six top-10 finishes, and 7 feature laps led on the season.

Richard Vander Weerd (Visalia, California) finished fourth at the Tulare County Fairgrounds. Racing the family owned #10 Vander Weerd Construction / Stone Gate Development Maxim, Richard qualified third overall and ran second to Danny Faria Jr. in his heat race. At press time, the 2011 champion ranks second in points with one Woodland Auto Display Fast Time Award, and six top-10 finishes.

“Hollywood” Danny Faria Jr. (Tipton, California) scored fifth in the 30-lap main event. Driving his #17V Buster & Ziggy Enterprises / SurfnSprint Spike, Faria was ninth quick in time trials and won the 10-lap Keizer Aluminum Wheels / Saldana Racing Products Heat Race #3. The two-time champion is sixth in points with one feature win, four heat race victories, one pole shuffle win, five top-10 finishes, and 50 feature laps led to his credit.

Shannon McQueen (Bakersfield, California) raced to victory in the 10-lap Brown & Miller Racing Solutions Heat Race #2. Piloting the Bob & Toni Van Meter owned #7 Simpson Race Products / Lucas Oil Spike, McQueen qualified eighth overall and scored tenth in the “Faria Memorial.” As this writing goes to press, the 2012 USAC Western States Midget Champion ranks sixteenth in points with two top-10 finishes on the year.

On Saturday, June 3rd, the USAC West Coast Sprint Cars will invade Jim Naylor’s Ventura Raceway in Ventura, California. The “Battle of the Beach Race #1” is co-sanctioned with the VRA Sprints and will also showcase IMCA Modifieds, California Lightning Sprints, and USAC 600 Micro Sprints.
