USAC Ford Focus Midget Series Win at Ocean Speedway for K&N Sponsored Teen
USAC Ford Focus Midget drivers faced a double header first at Ocean Speedway on May 15 in Watsonville, California then at Kings Speedway in Hanford, California on May 16.
USAC Ford Focus Midgets had a double header weekend at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, California and Kings Speedway in Hanford, California
Next USAC Ford Focus Midget Race for Cody Swanson will be at Ventura Speedway in California
K&N sponsored teen racer Cody Swanson was excited to get back on the dirt after his strong 2nd place finish in Sean Bowman’s No. 55 car in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In Watsonville, Swanson started the feature in sixth position. “Things started getting dicey fast when the No, 4 car flipped down the back straight and nearly collected Cody in the process,” said Kirk Swanson, Cody’s father. “When the field lined up for the restart, Swanson found himself in 2nd position behind the No. 91 car.”
Swanson worked very hard and tried everything he had to work his way to first. “It was a very close race with Cody and the No. 91 car trying to earn the top spot,’ said Swanson. “By lap 17, the pressure Cody applied to the 91 car worked and my son made the pass on the outside and drove on to a well earned victory.”
The Swanson Motorsports Team uses K&N products. “K&N protects our engines and allows them to breathe,” said Swanson. “Dirt is never a problem on the track with K&N.”
Kings Speedway had a very different race track from Ocean Speedway. It was smaller and very hot. For the first time in the 2009 season, the Ford Focus cars qualified. The Swanson Motorsports team wrapped up qualifying with Wally Pankratz driving the No. 88 car to 1st position and Cody Swanson in 2nd position.
Swanson started the feature in 5th position next to his teammate for the night. An early race mishap cost Pankratz any chance of winning after his left rear tire was cut down. Cody went on to finish the event in 3rd place.
“It was a tough race,” said Swanson. “It’s a tight little track and very hard to pass. There were times I drove over the track and it cost me a better finish. I’ll take what I learned here and get better for the next time. This was a great points weekend for us and we are back in this thing.”
Cody and the Swanson Motorsports Team will head to Ventura Speedway in California for their next race.
