(JUNE 22, 2004, PERRIS, CA) Current Oval Nationals and Tony Hulman Classic champion Cory Kruseman will drive Andy Bondio's potent midget when Perris Auto Speedway hosts the USAC Western Midgets this Saturday night.

Kruseman, of Ventura, California, is currently ranked second in points in the USAC National Sprint Car Series. The likable 33-year old will catch a red eye flight from Richmond, Virginia, where he will be competing with the USAC National Series on Friday night, to make it to The PAS in time for Saturday's race. The veteran driver drives for former NASCAR Nextel Cup Champion Tony Stewart in the National Sprint Car Series.

Saturday Kruseman will be driving for Andy Bondio. The two have teamed up to win the prestigious Chili Bowl Nationals two times including 2004. Kruseman's last appearance at Perris Auto Speedway came two weeks ago when he started 15th and finished second in the Valvoline USAC/CRA Sprint Car main event.

Joining the USAC Western Midgets on Saturday's card will be the PASSCAR Super Stocks and the Art's Concrete Pumping Extreme Trucks & SUV's.

Spectator gates will open at 5:00 PM on Saturday and the first race will be at 7:00.

Remember, the month of June is Kid's Month at The PAS. Bring one, 100 or 1,000 kids 12 and under and they will be admitted free when they are accompanied by an adult.

Perris Auto Speedway is conveniently located on the Lake Perris Fairgrounds, home of the Southern California Fair, approximately one hour east of Los Angeles. Take the 215 Freeway, exit at the Ramona Expressway and go east two and a half miles to the fairgrounds.
