CRA SPRINTS SET FOR 50 LAPS SATURDAY AT THE PAS
KIRBY BEATS GARDNER AND WILLIAMS AT SANTA MARIA

The hotly-contested Valvoline/USAC CRA Sprint Car Championship continues this Saturday night with a big 50-lap feature slated at the Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway. The top two in the standings are separated by a mere 10 points!

Mike Kirby of Torrance, Calif. held off point leaders Rip Williams and Damion Gardner to win last Saturday's 30-lapper at the Santa Maria (Calif.) Speedway driving the L.A. Prep/LaVilla Restaurant Stinger/RC. Gardner, who earlier in the evening posted his 17th fast qualifying time of the season, finished second and Williams was third ahead of Rickie Gaunt and Rodney Argo.

The finish left defending series titlist Williams holding a slim 10-point lead over Gardner, with Kirby still third in the standings.
