Austin Luttmer of West Jordan, Utah led all 25 laps to win Saturday night’s USAC Western/Utah Ford Focus race at Rocky Mountain Raceways. Gregg Fuette, fast qualifier Chuck Groat, Ron Duncombe and Guy Sainsbury rounded out the “top-five.” Series point leader Jim Waters originally finished second but his car failed post-race technical inspection.
