WILLIAMS EXTENDS CRA LEAD WITH PAS VICTORY
SERIES HEADS TO MANZANITA SATURDAY

Rip Williams of Yorba Linda, Calif. extended his lead in the Valvoline USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series points standings Saturday night at the Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway, winning the 30-lap feature on the half-mile dirt oval. He heads for Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix, Ariz. for this Saturday night's "Hall of Fame Vintage Classic" racing program on the 1/2-mile dirt oval with a 55-point lead over runner-up Damion Gardner in defense of his 2004 series title.

Gardner won the last USAC/CRA Sprint race at Manzy, in May, but Williams had a second and third in two April races there. Gardner was 20th in last Saturday's race at Perris.

Driving the John Jory Corporation/Weld Wheels Stinger/Shaver, Williams passed Cory Kruseman on lap 21 and led the rest of the way to beat Charles Davis Jr., Kruseman, Danny Sheridan and Mike Spencer.

A 30-lap feature tops the action at Phoenix, which will host the Checker Auto Parts/Budweiser "Western World Championships" in November.
