Billet Cup Next For USAC West Coast
Qualifiers featuring 12-laps of action will follow, inverting the top eight cars in points. The top eighteen cars in points after the qualifiers are locked into the main event, with the high point driver starting twenty-second.
A 15-lap semi-main will lineup the remaining cars by points for the final four transfer spots to the feature. The driver ranking twenty-second in points will start on the pole of the main event, twenty-first will start second and so forth down the line.
Last year, the Billet Cup and its special format provided one of the most action packed events of the season. Richard Vander Weerd won the feature after starting seventeenth at Santa Maria.
Five-Time USAC/CRA champion Mike Spencer was second after starting ninth and Ryan Bernal raced to third from thirteenth. Bud Kaeding scored fourth from eighteenth and Danny Faria Jr. claimed fifth after starting sixteenth. Danny Sheridan placed sixth in the main event after starting fifteenth.
To date, four different drivers have scored feature wins in 2013. Ryan Bernal and Bryan Clauson lead all drivers with four victories and Richard Vander Weerd has two wins. R.J. Johnson won a Winter Challenge event at Canyon Speedway Park on Feb. 2.
