James Weston turned his prophecy into reality Friday night at Ventura Raceway, winning the 20-lap Street Stock main event by one-third of a lap. The Ventura resident blew a tire twice in last week's main, the second one coming when he hit a hole in the track in the first turn on the last lap after charging from last place to fifth. Afterward he vowed, "I'll get them next week." Weston did just that, taking the lead on the start from the second position and running wire to wire for the victory.
