CRA SPRINTS "OFF" UNTIL JULY 23 KRUSEMAN TAKES "FIRECRACKER 50"

The Valvoline USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series will take the next two weeks "off" and will resume July 23 at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.

Cory Kruseman of Ventura, Calif. will be trying to catch Damion Gardner for the runner-up point spot in the standings when the series resumes. Kruseman won Saturday night's "Firecracker 50" at Perris to close to within just 24 points of Gardner, who finished 23rd Saturday (last).

Kruseman piloted Glen Crossno's ITI Performance/Sander Engineering TCR/Downing to his third win of the 2005 campaign. He battled Danny Sheridan for the lead through the first 18 laps, then led the final 32 to beat Sheridan, Steve Ostling, series point leader Rip Williams and Mike Spencer.

Gardner, who has seven victories so far this year, failed to post the fastest qualifying time for only the fourth time this season as that honor went to 2004 USAC Western Midget Car Champion Johnny Rodriguez.
