SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (May 17, 2011) Portland’s Keegan Walmer led teammate Jessica Clark for a 1-2 Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle finish in the second USAC NorCal Ford Focus Midget feature at All American Speedway on Saturday night.

Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle is a driver development program based in Sacramento that develops drivers with the talent and potential for a career in professional Stock Car racing.

Walmer led much of the early laps of the event before loosing the lead on lap 15.  After an exciting battle, Walmer took over the lead on lap 20 to charge to a convincing victory.

Clark ran in tow with Walmer to the checkered flag, challenging him briefly as she took several looks to the inside.  Clark’s second place finish allowed her to extend her USAC National Ford Focus points lead as she chases a historic first national title for a female in USAC.

Walmer, 15, has established himself as the veteran leader of the Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle team in the NorCal division as he anchors a team that includes several rookies.  “I’m so excited that I got this win (on Saturday) and excited about the season to come!” Walmer said.

Walmer’s victory and runner-up finishes at Roseville give him the points lead in the USAC NorCal Ford Focus Midgets.  Teammate Tanner Long of Illinois, in his sophomore season, had finishes of third in the first race and fourth in the second feature to place him fourth in the NorCal standings.

“Leading the NorCal, SoCal, Western and National standings all at one time is a big accomplishment for these RSWC drivers,” Head of Driver Development Ron Sutton said.  “Jessica and Keegan have both put targets on themselves as they head into the meat of the season, but they look poised to rise to the occasion!”

The USAC Ford Focus Midgets get back in action on May 21 at Stockton 99 Speedway with points races for both the USAC NorCal Ford Focus and the USAC NorCal Young Guns.
