Jones and his La Villa Restaurant/Communication Innovations DRC/RC Performance machine led the final nine laps of Saturday's 30-lapper after passing Rodney Argo on lap 22.

Argo led the first two laps, then yielded to Blake Miller for th next seven before taking the point back o lap 10. Argo finished second in the 30-lap race ahead of Rip Williams, Cory Kruseman and Rickie Gaunt.

Nine different drivers have tasted victory in the 10 races at Perris this season. Darren Hagen, Garrett Hansen, Spencer, R.J. Johnson, Danny Sheridan, Scotty Weir, Blake Miller and Cory Kruseman are the others.

A special "Fireworks Sky Concert" is planned as part of the July 4 celebration.
