Nobody has been able to repeat as an AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint feature winner this year at the Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway but that could change this Saturday night when the series returns to its home track.
Series point leader Mike Spencer of Temecula, Calif. is among those who could score the repeat win. Spencer won in March, while Damion Gardner won the National/CRA race in February, Greg Bragg won in April and David Cardey was the winner last month.
Bragg and Cardey rank ninth and 10th respectively in the new series standings, while Spencer enjoys a 14-point lead over Danny Sheridan, whose best Perris finish this season came in April, a second. He also has a pair of thirds at the half-mile dirt oval where he owns five career USAC wins.
Saturday’s racing program includes the California Lightning Sprints and WRA Vintage racers.
