September 9 racing saw Greg Baronian take a big step towards the Central Valley Mini Stocks championship following his impressive win Sunday in the 25-lap main event at the Lemoore Raceway. Baronian has been unstoppable this season, winning all but one race.

Baronian led his race Sunday from start to finish, leaving Brent Myrick and Dan Myrick to battle for second. As Baronian pulled away, Myrick held off every attempt by Dan Myrick to pull into second place. Baronian easily finished a straightaway ahead of Brent Myrick as Dan Myrick took third. Ryan Doglione took the fourth spot with just three laps to go, while Scott Glenn and Ryan Blank rounded out the top seven. Jeff Durant, Lindsey Brown, and Dick Adams took the checkered flag as they made up the remainder of the Top 10.

Baronian got off to a strong start in qualifying beating a 15-car field with a lap of 14.898 on the 1/5-mile dirt oval. Randy Brown Sr. was second fastest at 15.631. Baronian continued his momentum by beating Brown by a straightaway to win the four-lap Trophy Dash. However, Darren Wilson beat Baronian back to the line in their eight-lap heat race to prevent a clean sweep.

Brown won the second heat in front of Chuck Doglione. Ryan Doglione outran Scott Glenn to win the final heat race.

Mikey Clark made history as the first driver to win a 20-lap Dwarf Car Main Event at Lemoore Raceway. Clark made the trip all the way from Vancouver, Washington to race after being a part of the big Dwarf Car show in Chico the previous two nights. He led the race from the start with John Harris running behind the first 10 laps. As the race continued, Clark stretched his lead to a straightaway over Harris. Becca Clark finished third, followed by Tailer Morrison and Steven Spears.
Clark also turned in the fast qualifier with a 13.767 lap, beating Harris. Clark continued his clean-sweep effort by winning the 10-lap heat race ahead of Harris.

The Central Valley Mini Stocks will run their final point event on Sunday, October 14. The Dwarf Cars have been invited back to be a part of that show. For further information, go to
