Binder Leads Southwest Sprints To Nevada

USAC's Southwest Sprint Car Series resumes action this Saturday night as USAC returns to the Silver State for the first time in two years.

Reno-Fernley Raceway, located about 30 miles east of Reno, hosts the series on its 3/8-mile dirt track, with a 40-lap feature on tap following complete prelims.

Beau Binder of El Paso, Texas, leads the series standings after winning the opener at El Centro, Calif. in March. He recorded his initial series victory last year at Aztec, N.M. on his way to fifth in the 2003 series standings.

Binder's is virtually tied with defending series champion Rick Ziehl for the point lead going into Saturday night's racing program.

USAC's last appearance in Nevada was in 2002 when Tony Stewart "swept" a Sprint/Midget "doubleheader" at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
