CRA SPRINTS RETURN TO THE PAS SATURDAY; JONES SEEKS 4TH STRAIGHT AFTER SATURDAY'S TRIUMPH

Defending Lucas Oil USAC/CRA Sprint Car Champ Tony Jones of Norco, Calif. will try to become the first driver in Lucas Oil USAC/CRA history to win four straight races at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway Saturday when the series continues at the 1/2-mile dirt oval.

Jones scored his third consecutive PAS feature victory in Saturday night's 30-lap feature. He passed Danny Sheridan on lap 15 and led the rest of the way in his Alexander Trucking/La Villa Restaurant DRC/JC Performance machine to beat Sheridan, Blake Miller, Rickie Gaunt and series point leader Mike Spencer.

Gaunt led the first 11 laps and Sheridan the next three before Jones moved into the lead on lap 15.

Spencer remains atop the series standings with a 109-point edge over Miller going into Saturday's racing program.
