WEST COAST SPRINTS AT TULARE JUNE 21;
BERNAL 4-FOR-4 AFTER KINGS VICTORY
Markus Niemela of Finland remains atop the USAC West Coast Sprint Car standings for now, but he needs to keep an eye peeled for Ryan Bernal, despite the fact that Bernal is 11th in the standings!
If Bernal continues the kind pof success he’s had the past three weeks, he’ll rapidly close the 150-or-so deficit he currently faces.
Bernal, of Hollister, Calif., has been nothing short of spectacular since mid-May, sweeping all four feature events he’s competed in this year!
The latest victory came Saturday night at Kings Speedway in Hanford, Calif., where he led the final 28 laps in the Mike Phulps Core Power/Metal Works ART/S & S entry to beat Richard Vander Weerd, Nic Faas, Dennis Howell and Matt Mitchell, who led the first two laps.
Niemela took sixth in the Hanford feature.
