TULSA, Okla. (May 5, 2008) -- A busy month of May for the American Sprint Car Series Southwest Region continues this Saturday night when the series takes to Tucson's semi-banked, 3/8-mile United Sports Arizona Race Park clay oval.

Saturday's card at USA Race Park marks the third event of the year for the all new ASCS Southwest Region.

While Don Grable and Ben Gregg have reached victory lane in the series opening pair of events, it's Tucson's Ronnie Clark that is out to the early series points lead after posting runner-up finishes in both events thus far.

Clark is just six points ahead of Gregg, with Phoenix shoe Steve Martin another six points back in third. Mesa's Mike Rux, Jr., is fourth, just two points ahead of Cody Cambensy and El Paso's Shawn Sander, who are tied for fifth.

Billy Chester III of Phoenix is just two more points back in seventh, with the balance of the top ten including Glendale's Joshua Williams, John Gaston and Tucson's Jessica Van Dyke.

Saturday's inaugural American Sprint Car Series Southwest Region event at Tucson's USA Race Park is slated to go green at 6:45 p.m.
