Kruseman wins SCRA at the PAS!

Fabulous night of racing. Three of the four heat races winners came from the fourth row. The best JE Pistons Passing Masters Dash in the history of The PAS saw pole sitter Damion Gardner drop to third and come back to the front passing Cory Kruseman and Richard Griffin.

Main event turned into a three-way fight for the lead with Kruseman, Kirby and Griffin. Kruseman led the last 13 laps but was constantly challenged by either Kirby or Griffin. Kirby at one point dropped from fourth to eighth, but charged back to second.

As with the heats and B main, there were several impressive passing jobs in the A main. The record shows Tony Jones started 12th and finished 7th. However, Jones had to restart at the rear after a tangle with Kirby (while they were in the top five) and then came all the way back to 7th. Also, John Scott 11th to 4th, Steve Ostling 15th to 5th, Danny Sheridan 19th to 10th and Levi Jones 21st to 11th. Charles Davis Jr. was one of the fastest cars on the track and was sixth when he was involved in a tangle and had to go to the back.

Most serious incident of the night was Verne Sweeney taking a nasty flip down the back straight early in the main. He was uninjured.

Phil Goodwine inherited the lead when J.J. Ercse dropped out with mechanical ills and went on to win the 20-lap Southern California Ford Dealers USAC Ford Focus Midget main event.

The PAS will host the Temecula Valley Mitsubishi Super Stocks, Temecula Valley Pipe & Supply Street Stocks, Daredevil Figure Eight and a Demolition Derby on April 20th. Spectator gates will open at 4:00 and the first race will be at 6:30 PM. Vista Paint will present the NAPA Auto Parts/Auto Trader Magazine SCRA Sprint Cars at The PAS on April 27th. The popular FreestyleMX.com Freestyle Motocross Tour, featuring X Games Gold Medallists Kenny Bartram and Tommy "Tomcat" Clowers, will invade The PAS on Friday May 3rd.
