USAC/CRA BACK TO THE PAS SATURDAY; MANZY WINNER DAVIS SEVENTH WINNER IN SEVEN RACES

The USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series returns to Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway Saturday night. The eighth race in this year's series could produce an eighth different feature winner!

Charles Davis Jr. of Buckeye, Ariz. became the seventh different winner this year, leading the final 28 laps of Saturday's 30-lap race at Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix, Ariz. Davis passed early leader Darren Hagen on lap three and led the rest of the way in his Massey's Truck & Tank Repair/Arizona Race Mart DRC/Wesmar.

Series point leader Tony Jones finished second at Phoenix and now leads runnerup and Phoenix fast qualifier Mike Spencer by 45 points going into this Saturday's race at The PAS. Hagen, Rickie Gaunt and Jesse Hockett rounded out the "top-five."

The past five Perris races have produced five different winners, including Jones, who scored eight victories there last year. Actually, dating back to last year, the last nine USAC'CRA features have produced different winners.
