Sherman Strikes Again in ASCS Canyon Region Action at USA Race Park
TUCSON, Ariz. (May 5, 2007) -- It takes a lot to keep Surprise, AZ, racer Jeremy Sherman out of American Sprint Car Series Canyon Region victory lane. And his foes haven't deciphered the winning equation yet as Sherman charged to his fourth consecutive triumph in as many tries in Saturday night's 25-lap feature at United Sports Arizona Race Park.
For the second time in four outings, Sherman spotted the field a four row or more advantage by starting tenth. But the two-time and reigning Arizona state champion needed less than a handful of laps to slice through the field and overtake pole starter Charles Davis, Jr., for the point.
Sherman survived a late caution to take the win aboard Fred Bryan's F&E Development/Impact Racing No. 77 Maxim, with Davis taking runner-up honors. Bob Ream, Jr., took the show position, with 11th-starter Mike Leslie and ninth-starter Josh Pelkey rounding out the top five.
Seainn Hendricsen crossed the stripe sixth, with Bernie Smith, 15-year-old Chad Boat, Chris Edwards and 16-year-old rookie contender Nick Aiuto competing the top ten.
Making his ASCS Canyon Region debut, Nathan High held the third position until the 15th circuit when he tagged the frontstretch wall and went for a wild ride. High was uninjured.
Josh Foster took a tumble in the feature as well and was transported to an area hospital for observation.
Davis, R.J. Johnson, J.T. Imperial and Ream topped heat race action for the 33-car field, with Bruce St. James winning the "B" Main.
