CRA BACK-TO-BACK AT VENTURA, PERRIS THIS WEEKEND; PERRIS VICTOR WILLIAMS JOINS LIST OF 2007 RACE WINNERS

The Lucas Oil USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series presents back-to-back races Friday and Saturday at Ventura and Perris, Calif., with nine of the "top-10" drivers in the standings now having claimed 2007 race victories. Ventura Raceway hosts Friday's events, while the series returns to Perris Auto Speedway Saturday night.

Rip Williams of Yorba Linda, Calif. is the latest to join the list of 2007 race winners, leading all 30 laps of Saturday night's Perris feature in his John Jory Corporation/AMA Plastics Stinger/Shaver. R.J. Johnson, Josh Ford, Garrett Hansen and fast qualifier Cory Kruseman rounded out the "top-five."

Rickie Gaunt remains the only "top-10" driver yet to win this season. Three of his six "podium" finishes have come at the Perris oval, so he is among favorites when the series returns there Saturday.

Blake Miller and Ventura's own Kruseman have won features at the Ventura oval this year.
