CRA SPRINTS HEAD FOR SKAGIT SPEEDWAY
GARDNER CLOSES ON WILLIAMS WITH PERRIS VICTORY

The Valvoline USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series heads for Washington State this weekend for races at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. Friday and Saturday nights. A 30-lap feature is slated Friday and a 40-lapper is on tap Saturday.

Damion Gardner of Concord, Calif. trails defending series champ Rip Williams by 109 points with 148 available this weekend. Gardner posted his eighth win of the 2005 season and sixth at Perris Auto Speedway Saturday night, leading the final four laps after passing Williams on lap 27. Williams finished second ahead of Danny Sheridan, Mike Kirby and Mike Spencer.

Gardner, whose fast qualifying time at Perris was his 14th this year, won the second of two Skagit features last year, while Cory Kruseman, USAC's brand-new Valvoline "Indiana Sprint Week" Champion, won last year's Skagit opener.
