Sherman Wins At Perris; Midgets At Kings Saturday

Jeremy Sherman of Phoenix, Ariz. led all but the first three laps of Saturday night's 30-lap USAC WorldCom Western Midget Car feature at the Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway. The win was the first in USAC competition for the 1995 series "Rookie of the Year."

Danny Ebberts of Canyon Lake, Calif. finished fifth in Saturday night's feature and emerged with a 43-point lead over Alex Harris in the new series standings going into this Saturday night's racing program at the Kings Speedway in Hanford, Calif. A 30-lap feature tops the night's events on the 3/8-mile dirt Kings County Fairgrounds oval.

Sherman caught early leader Shane Scully on the fourth lap and led the rest of the way in his Ellis Racing/Moleterno Racing/Sander/BG Chemicals/Simpson Ford Brayton/Ellis to beat Robby Flock, Matt Streeter, Scully and Ebberts. The race concluded two nights of competition on the 1/2-mile dirt track. Friday night's fastest qualifier was Bryan Stanfill but he failed to finish Saturday's race. Friday night heats went to Ebberts, Randi Pankratz and Stanfill.

Flock won the May 12 race at Hanford and based on his second-place finish at Perris Saturday he will again be a top threat for victory this Saturday.
