JoJo Helberg of Rohnert Park, Calif. is the new point leader in the USAC Western Sprint Car Series after finishing third in Saturday night’s 50-lap feature event at the All American Speedway in Roseville, Calif. The series returns to the 1/3-mile paved oval June 27.
Brothers Kody and Tanner Swanson of Kingsburg, Calif. swept the top two positions in Saturday’s race. Kody took the lead from Helberg on the 32nd lap and led the rest of the way in his TK Motorsports entry to beat Tanner, Helberg, Brian McClish and Eric Humphries.
Humphries led the first seven laps of the race and ranks fifth in the new series standings.
