CRA: Perris round four preview

CRA RETURNS TO PERRIS WILLIAMS STILL SEEKING ...

CRA RETURNS TO PERRIS WILLIAMS STILL SEEKING #100!

Four drivers share the spotlight as the 2005 Valvoline USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series continues this Saturday night at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.

Mike Kirby of Torrance, Calif. and Charles Davis, Jr. of Phoenix, Ariz. are virtually tied for the series point lead after the first two races, while Damion Gardner of Concord, Calif. will try to repeat his February 5 Perris victory and Rip Williams of Yorba Linda, Calif. continues his search for that elusive 100th career Sprint car triumph.

Kirby won the last CRA title in 1993 before USAC picked up the sanction last year. Williams won the inaugural USAC title in 2004. Gardner is the series' most proficient winner, with nine total wins, while Davis, who finished second to Dave Darland in the 2005 series opener, is still seeking his first win despite 10 "top-10" finishes.

Gardner, Williams and Kirby have accounted for seven 1-2-3 finishes in USAC/CRA competition, including February 5 at Perris.

Saturday's events, presented by Temecula Valley Pipe & Supply and Vista Paint Motor Sports, conclude with a 30-lap feature. Spectator gates open at 5 pm.
