ASCS CANYON REGION ACTION RESUMES SATURDAY AT MANZANITA

TULSA, Okla. (July 30, 2007) -- After a month off for teams to regroup, the wingless troops of the American Sprint Car Series Canyon Region return to action atop Manzanita Speedway's 0x00bd-mile clay oval this Saturday night in Phoenix, AZ.

As the series returns to action, Jeremy Sherman of Surprise, AZ, will try to continue the form that he has carried through the opening eleven events of the season to amass 135 point lead in the championship points chase.

Sherman has racked up nine wins in eleven events, including seven triumphs in as many events at Manzanita Speedway. Three of those victories have come atop the 0x00bd-mile oval, with the other four on the 1/3-mile.

While Sherman holds a commanding lead, the battle for position behind him is an intense one with Bob Ream, Jr., just one point ahead of Mike Leslie in the battle for second. Also in the tightly-packed points race are Josh Pelkey, Bernie Smith, Charles Davis, Jr., Seainn Hendricsen and Andrew Reinbold, with only 36 markers separating second from eighth.

Mike Martin enters Saturday's event ninth in points, just another 21 points back, with Shon Deskins rounding out the current top ten.

Just outside the top ten are Michael Colegrove, Jeremy Reagles, Chris Bonneau, Bobby Taylor, Nick Aiuto, Justin Fisher and Bruce St. James.

Once again, $50 certificates will be awarded to each of the heat race winners, with Racing Optics sponsoring heat race one, Parker Store sponsoring heat race two, Kenz & Leslie/BG Chemicals sponsoring heat race three and Sunoco sponsoring heat race four. Arizona Race Mart sponsors the Pole Dash, while Sunoco will also award a $50 certificate to each "B" Main winner in ASCS Canyon Region action this year.

Saturday's racing action goes green at 8:00 p.m.
