“Kevin and Kent Gerhardt worked hard all night to get the car ready so I could be competitive for the feature,” said Lewis. “We were off somewhat with our qualifying effort so I knew I had to work hard during the race. I was able to get a good start as well as good results during the feature. It means a lot to me to get a win for the Gerhardt family at their home track.”

Because of Lewis’ feature win, both Western Speed Ford Focus midgets are now ranked in the top 3 in points of the USAC California Pavement Ford Focus Car Series. Lewis is in 6th position and teammate Cody Gerhardt is in 2nd position.

“When they show up, everyone knows the team is ready to do business,” said K&N Sports Marketing Manager Tony Yorkman. “K&N is happy to be a part of it and looks forward to the rest of the season with two sprinters and two midgets running with Toyota power and K&N air filters and oil filters.”

Lewis and Gerhardt will race next May 30th at All American Speedway in Roseville, California.

"We want to thank K&N for their support and outstanding products," said Lewis. "The K&N filter is a very important component to help protect our engine, increase the airflow, and offer the extra filtration we needed to help us win by 10 car lengths."
