SHERMAN SHOOTS FOR ASCS CANYON REGION THREE-PEAT ON SATURDAY

TULSA, Okla. (April 9, 2007) -- Defending Arizona state champion Jeremy Sherman will try to make it three American Sprint Car Series Canyon Region feature wins in a row when the series takes to Manzanita Speedway's 0x00bd-mile clay oval this Saturday night.

Sherman has topped the series opening pair of events, but each win came in entirely different manner. Sherman wired the field in the March 10 opener on the 1/3-mile, then battled forward from the twelfth position to overtake Mike Leslie for the win on the 0x00bd-mile on March 31.

With the victories in the opening pair of events, Sherman has opened up a 20-point lead over Leslie in the series championship points chase. Sixteen-year-old Michael Colegrove is just points behind Leslie in third, with Josh Pelkey, Shon Deskins and 18-year-old Rookie of the Year contender Jeremy Reagles tied for fourth.

R.J. Johnson is currently seventh in points, with the balance of the current top ten including Mike Martin, Bob Ream, Jr., and Seainn Hendricsen.
