CRA SPRINTS AT VENTURA RACEWAY SATURDAY; MILLER, KRUSEMAN TAKE PERRIS, TULARE FEATURES

Tony Jones of Norco, Calif. leads the Lucas Oil USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series to Ventura (Calif.) Raceway Saturday night for the first of three scheduled 2007 CRA appearances at the track.

Cory Kruseman (twice) and Mike Spencer were the 2006 USAC/CRA winners at Ventura. Spencer ranks second to Jones in the latest series standings.

Kruseman, who calls Ventura home, won Sunday night's 30-lap feature at the Tulare (CA) Thunderbowl Raceway, leading the final 18 laps in his Agromin Soil/Sander Engineering Bullet/Mopar. Jones led the first 12 laps but faded to sixth at the checkered flag. Rickie Gaunt, Danny Sheridan, Rodney Argo and Blake Miller rounded out the "top-five."

Miller, of Yorba Linda, Calif., scored his first-ever USAC/CRA feature win Saturday night at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway in his Black Widow Racing/Gardner Pipe & Mechanical Sled/Shaver. Following his 40-lap "Salute to Indy" victory he accepted the winner's wreath and drank milk in victory lane. David Cardey, Gaunt, Sheridan and Jones completed the "top-five." Josh Ford and Sheridan led feature laps but Miller finally dispatched Sheridan on lap 29 and led the final 12 laps.
