(LAKE PERRIS, CA AUGUST 21, 2001) The best show in dirt track racing, the SCRA Sprint Cars, returns to the half-mile clay oval at Perris Auto Speedway this Saturday night.
Series point leader Cory Kruseman, 30, comes into Saturday's action with an incredible five race-winning streak at The PAS. The veteran Ventura driver broke Rip Williams long standing track record of four consecutive wins at the track on August 11th. As "The Kruzer" continues to rack up wins at the Riverside County oval, he also closes in on his first SCRA Championship. The new father carries a 310-point bulge over second place Richard "The Gassman" Griffin into Saturday's race.
Last Saturday night the SCRA series competed at the banked 1/3-mile dirt track in Santa Maria. Hesperia's popular John Scott picked up his fifth lifetime SCRA win leading the main event from the green to the checkered flag. Ojai's Troy Rutherford placed second with Kruseman, Silver City New Mexico's Griffin and Charles Davis Jr., of Chandler, Arizona rounding out the top five.
The month of August is "Senior Citizen's Month" at The PAS. All fans 60-years of age and better will get into the races for $10.00 on Saturday and they will be able to get two ice cream cones for the price of one.
Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM on Saturday.
On Labor Day weekend The PAS will play host to two nights of racing. On Saturday September 1st, it will be a triple-header featuring the Ramona Tire PASSCAR Stock Cars, California Champ Trucks and the Pick-A-Part Cruisers. On Sunday September 2nd, Major League Sprint Car racing will return when the SCRA Sprint Cars battle in a 50-lap main event.
Perris Auto Speedway is located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds. Take the 215 Freeway, exit at the Ramona Expressway and go east two miles to the fairgrounds.
