Villanueva aims for hometown title

Mike Villanueva is back racing at Merced Speedway, and he’s after the track championship in the International Motor Contest Association (IMCA) Modified Stock Car division, which takes center stage at the speedway Saturday night. The born and raised Merced “tree man” has been a fan favorite — from his days of playing football in Merced High School and the city league through his new-found career as a stock car driver that began eight years ago.
