CRA GEARS UP FOR MAY 12 PERRIS RETURN; WEIR 1ST TO REPEAT THIS SEASON

The USAC/CRA Sprint Cars will return to Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway May 12 and when they do Scotty Weir will be on the spot.

Weir became the first driver to repeat as a series feature winner last Saturday night, pacing all 30 laps in his ITI Performance/HK Construction Bullet to beat Mike Spencer, Blake Miller, Rip Williams and Johnny Rodriguez. The victory ended a USAC record-tying streak of 11 different winners at the start of the season.

So far, Williams is the only driver in the "top-10" in the standings without a win this year. With over 100 career Sprint car feature wins under his belt, that could end May 12.

Tony Jones, Saturday's fastest qualifier, finished seventh and holds a 79-point lead over Spencer in the new series standings.
