CRA SPRINTS HEAD FOR SANTA MARIA SATURDAY; KRUSEMAN 1ST TO WIN 3 IN CRA THIS YEAR

Tony Jones continues to pace the Lucas Oil USAC/CRA Sprint Car standings despite a seventh-place finish in Saturday night's 30-lap race at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway. He'll try to extend that lead this Saturday when the series visits the Santa Maria (Calif.) Speedway.

Cory Kruseman, the only three-time CRA winner so far this season, and Rip Williams, still seeking his first 2007 victory, won last year's USAC/CRA races at the Santa Maria oval.

Kruseman, of Ventura, Calif., passed Scotty Weir on the second lap of Saturday's race at Perris and led the rest of the way in his Agromin Soil/Sander Engineering Bullet/Mopar. Mike Spencer, Danny Sheridan, Blake Miller and Rickie Gaunt trailed him to the checkered flag. Kruseman, the defending series champion, currently ranks seventh in the 2007 standings.
