KIRBY-DAVIS POINT BATTLE SPICES PERRIS SATURDAY

Mike Kirby of Torrance, Calif. and Charles Davis, Jr. of Phoenix, Ariz. are tied for the point lead entering this Saturday night's Valvoline USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series event at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.

Kirby was the last CRA Champion (1993) prior to the series' revival last year under USAC sanction. Davis has never won a USAC title but won a USAC Sprint Car "special event" in Hawaii last November.

Separating the two are seven feature victories in USAC/CRA competition, Kirby having won seven times last year, while Davis is still seeking his first series win.

Temecula Valley Pipe & Supply present this year's Perris USAC/CRA events and Saturday night's racing program starts with practice at 6 pm. The feature will be 30 laps on the 1/2-mile dirt oval.

Defending Valvoline USAC/CRA Champion Rip Williams and runner-up Damion Gardner also bear watching Saturday. Williams will continues his search for a 100th career sprint car triumph while Gardner will try to repeat the victory he posted at Perris February 5.
