Sherman Takes Tucson for 12th ASCS Canyon Region Win
TUCSON, Ariz. (October 20, 2007) -- Jeremy Sherman and Charles Davis, Jr., resumed their on-track American Sprint Car Series Canyon Region rivalry Saturday night at USA Race Park, with Sherman coming out on top in the 30-lap feature for his twelfth series win of the year.
With the triumph aboard Fred Bryan's F&E Development No. 77 Maxim, Sherman completed a sweep of the series three events at USA Race Park in 2007 and locked up the series season championship in the process.
Starting from the third position, Sherman and front row outside starter Davis battled for the lead throughout. While Davis led most of the way, Sherman slid into the lead late. Davis made one last bid on the final lap, but climbed over Sherman's right rear tire and flipped out of contention.
Polesitter Josh Pelkey chased Sherman to the line, with R.J. Johnson racing from deep in the field to take the show position. Mike Leslie was fourth, with Andrew Reinbold rounding out the top five.
Mike Martin was sixth, with Bobby Taylor, Justin Fisher, Seainn Hendricsen and rookie shoe Nick Aiuto completing the top ten.
The ASCS Canyon Region wraps up the 2007 season next Saturday night, October 27, at Casa Grande's Central Arizona Raceway
