Hudson, NC (July 26, 2005) - The Ford Focus Midgets
return to Tri-County Motor Speedway this Friday night, along
with racing in the regular weekly divisions.
The Late Model Stocks have had a competitive field of cars
each week and the fans are sure to not be disappointed as
points battles begin to shape up.
Currently, Josh Goble leads Jimmy Doyle by 25 points.
In the Pepsi Super Stock Challenge, Marshall Sutton holds a
slim 12 point lead over Monty Cox, while Scott Franklin rides
third, 32 points away from Sutton.

and anything can happen.
Doug Setzer holds a 26-point advantage over Hank Hefner,
while Arnold Propst follows in third 28 points down from
David Hasson leads Jeff Poston in the Fast and Furious by a
mere 16-point margin.
