CENTURY MARK JUST AROUND THE CORNER FOR "THE RIPPER"?
CRA SPRINT CARS RETURN TO THE PAS SATURDAY

Once again, defending Valvoline CRA Sprint Car Champion Rip Williams will contest for his 100th career Sprint car feature victory when the series resumes this Saturday night at the Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.

Williams, in 17 starts at The PAS in 2004, scored three wins, five seconds and four thirds and was only out of the "top-10" once!

Rip holds a slim four-point lead over Charles Davis, Jr. in the latest CRA standings going into Saturday night's races.

Mike Kirby and Cory Kruseman also bear watching Saturday in the battle for points toward the 2005 CRA title. Kirby ranks third in the standings and has finished no worse than third in three PAS starts this season. Kruseman, who ranks fourth in points, won the last race at the 1/2-mile dirt oval March 26.

Damion Gardner, currently fifth in the standings, hopes to continue his Perris mastery as well. Gardner won the first two races there this season and has been the fastest qualifier at five of the last six CRA events.
