FINAL TUNEUP FOR PERRIS "NATIONALS" THIS SATURDAY

This Saturday night's race at the Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway will serve as a final tuneup for Valvoline USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series participants prior to the Nov. 3-5 "Budweiser Oval Nationals" at the 1/2-mile dirt track.

Damion Gardner, Rip Williams and Cory Kruseman will be competing for valuable points toward the 2005 USAC/CRA championship, separated by only 94 points with eight races remaining in the series. Gardner is 90 ahead of Williams and Kruseman trails Williams by just four.

Amazingly, those three drivers have accounted for 15 victories in the 16 races held so far this year at The PAS! Gardner has won eight, Kruseman has won five and Williams two. Rickie Gaunt is the only other driver to visit Perris' victory lane in 2005.

Equally amazing is the fact that the three point leaders have never "swept" the podium with a 1-2-3 finish this season at Perris.

The Nov. 3-5 races will afford points toward both the Valvoline National and CRA Sprint Car championships.
