The Valvoline USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series returns this Saturday to the Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway and the series point race continues to be tight.

Defending series titlist Rip Williams of Yorba Linda, Calif. vaulted back into the point lead Saturday night, finishing fourth behind race winner Cory Kruseman at the Ventura (Calif.) Raceway. Williams has an 11-point lead over Damion Gardner, who finished eighth at Ventura, going into the Phoenix race.

Kruseman piloted Glenn Crossno's ITI Performance/Sander Engineering Bullet/Downing to victory at Ventura, leading the final 27 laps after passing Rodney Argo on lap four. Charles Davis Jr., Rickie Gaunt, Williams and Steve Ostling rounded out the "top-five" at the checkered flag.
