Sherman Takes Taylor Memorial for 13th ASCS Canyon Win
PHOENIX, Ariz. (October 18, 2008) -- Jeremy Sherman made a late move to the front in Saturday night's 30-lap Buddy Taylor Memorial feature event atop Manzanita Speedway's 1/2-mile clay oval to win his 13th Discount Tire Co. American Sprint Car Series Canyon Region main event of the season.
Sherman worked his way forward from the ninth starting position aboard Fred Bryan's Wesmar-powered F&E Development No. 77 as Casey Shuman paced the early rounds from the pole position.
Shuman's bid for a third ASCS Canyon Region win of the season was cut short at the midway point with mechanical woes, with Nathan High assuming the point. High set the pace and was on course for his first series win until a caution after 26 laps put Charles Davis, Jr., and Sherman on his rear bumper.
Sherman climbed to second around Davis on the restart and then took the lead on the 27th round after a brief High bobble en route to capturing the checkered flag in front of Davis. Andrew Reinbold captured the show position, High settled for fourth and Shon Deskins rounded out the top five.
Nathan High won the Trophy Dash, with Reinbold, Davis, Mike Martin and High winning the heat races. Chris Bonneau topped the "B" Main.
