Gregg Leads ASCS Southwest to USA on Saturday!

TULSA, Okla. (June 23, 2008) -- Ben Gregg will try to get another American Sprint Car Series Southwest Region win streak in progress when the series returns to action at Tucson's United Sports Arizona Race Park this Saturday night.

While the current series points leader tries to get back to victory lane, El Paso's Shawn Sander vies for a winning streak of his own.

After posting four consecutive series wins to take command of the points race, Sander finally doused Gregg's hot streak with a June 7 score at USA Race Park.

After his first win of the season, Sander now trails Gregg by 42 markers in the ASCS Southwest Region's inaugural championship points chase. Cody Cambensy is currently ranked third, with Rick Ziehl and Ronnie Clark rounding out the current top five.

Steve Martin enters the weekend ranked sixth in points, with Mike Rux, Jr., John Gaston, Joshua Williams and Jessica Van Dyke completing the current top ten in points.

Saturday's action goes green at 7:00 p.m.

The semi-banked, 3/8-mile United Sports Arizona Race Park clay oval is located east of Tucson off I-10 Exit 268, then 1.6 mile south on Craycroft Road, which turns into Los Reales. For more information, contact the track at 520-574-8515.

The ASCS Southwest Region is set for 16 nights of winged Sprint Car racing throughout Arizona in 2008. In addition to events at Tucson's USA Race Park, the series will also be in action at Show Low's Thunder Speedway and Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix.
