STATE BEATS LOCALS IN WALL USAC FORD MIDGETS
WALL TWP., N.J. -- Jesse State, of Hyde Park, NY, held off New Jersey natives Sean Carman and Ryan Osborne to snap Pat Abold's Wirtgen America USAC Northeast Ford Focus Series Midget winning
streak at Wall Township Speedway Saturday night.

State, who won his career first N.E. Focus race at Seekonk, Mass. June 6, first ran in Carman's draft as they passed polesitter Osborne on the opening lap. The No. 18 Bay Auto Center Hawk-Ford Focus
series rookie then took the lead from Carman on lap three and pulled to a 3.670-sec. victory margin on Carman after 25 laps.

State, 18, has previously run on the adjacent Garden State Quarter Midget Racing Club's one-20th-mile "Little Wall" oval. He considers "Big Wall" his home track despite the two-hour drive. "Getting my first win at Seekonk was special," said State to series announcer Glenn Todd. "I never thought I'd get my second so soon."

Carman, of Stockton, and Osborne, of Milford, who rounded out the podium, also considered WTS as their home track. All 13 starters finished the 25-lap all-green-flag feature in five min., 29 sec. with an 91.045 mph average lap speed. Jon Seaman, Jr., of Southbury, CT finished fourth. The New Jersey State Police minimum age and accidents from the July 7 round at Oswego, N.Y., put six drivers on the sidelines. Shaun Gosselin, who won the Ford Focus N.E. Series' WTS debut last year, finished 10th.

Osborne and Michael Mohleski, of Frederick, Md., split the two eight-lap heats. Mohleski, in his second start of the year, was making his WTS debut despite having run at "Little Wall."

The N.E. series is to head for the Waterford (Conn.) Speedbowl Saturday before returning to Wall Aug. 18.

April 28, 2007: Although Sean & The Team didn't get the Feature finish they wanted...they have finally found & fixed the overheating problem the team has had for the past year! The first warmup session was the first plague of the evening pinning the water temp gauge at 280* making Sean pull off the speedway. Sean went out for the timed dash and had the same problem. Before the Heat race the team changed the water pump and had a "plug" fall out of the engine...it seems there has been a plug in the water jackets of the engine restricting the water flow through the engine. Sean finished 5th in his heat race and 8th in the Feature Event. Sean and the Team are very excited to now concentrate on the handling aspect of the racecar and they are looking forward to having the Lentini Auto Salvage, Pleasure Pools, Media Camping Center Stealth Midget up front for the rest of the season. Please Check back for updates often...thank you!!!

2006 USAC Northeast Ford Focus
Midget Series “Rookie of the Year”
‘The Stockton Stalker” - Sean Carman

Sean Carman, the 22 year old from Stockton, N.J., tried a major change in his career in 2006. Switching from dirt racing, where he was very successful, (2005 Bridgeport N.J. DIRT Sportsman Champion, and Most Popular Driver), to the paved racing of the USAC Ford Focus Midget Series.

Sean and the Carman Motorsports Team, worked hard at learning the new racing surface last year. They traveled to Florida in early February, to get some much needed experience, and came home with a couple of top 5’s, and a 12 place in the Florida Region points. They also proved they were going to race as much as they could during the regular season, and regularly traveling to race with the Carolina Series, getting a top 10 in point in that Series.

The real story for the year was Sean and the way he adapted to the paved tracks of The Northeast Ford Focus Series. The first race that Sean competed in with them was a heat at the Waterford Speedbowl in April, which he won. The feature had Sean finishing 4th, racing with the leaders. The Northeast Series competitors knew they had a very, very good rookie to compete against.

During the season, Sean had 5 top 5 finishes, with a best finish of 2nd at the Adirondack International Speedway in Lowville, N.Y. The team was able to get 7th in the final point standings, giving him “Rookie of the Year” with the Northeast Ford Focus Series. The award will be officially being presented at the USAC Night of Champions Awards Banquet that will be held in Indianapolis, In., on January 19th.
