West Coast, CRA and Western Midget Point Races heating up! Niemela running WC 360's in Bakersfield this Saturday!

Josh Ford Motorsports drivers have been solid through the first few point’s races of the early 2014 season and it's paid off with both Markus Niemelä and Nic Faas firmly in second place in the USAC/CRA and WCSC Series Points respectively and Trey Marcham in third for the Western Midgets!! Niemelä is just 4 points out of the top spot, Faas 20 with Marcham just 5 points out of the lead as well, in third, for the Western Midget Series!

Bakersfield Speedway will host the next WCSC Series race. Niemelä will be wheeling the potent A&A Precision CNC Machine / Berry Pack / King Racing Products #73 sprint, see if he can make a push for the lead.
