Mike Spencer of Temecula, Calif. continues to lead the 2010 AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Car series standings after a victory and a second in last weekend’s events. The series resumes July 30 with the “Firecracker 30” at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.
Spencer wrist-wrestled his way past Cory Kruseman for the lead on lap four and led the rest of the way to take Saturday night’s 30-lap feature at the Petaluma (Calif.) Speedway in his Madera Produce/Grubstake Mini Storage Maxim/Shaver. The win extended his point lead over Danny Sheridan to 40 points. Cody Williams took second ahead of Blake Miller, Sheridan and Ryan Bernal. Spencer was also the fastest qualifier.
Kruseman, of Ventura, Calif., led the final 24 laps of Friday night’s feature at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. for his first victory of the 2010 campaign. Driving the Lucas Oil/Agromin Viper/Mopar, Kruseman passed Nic Faas on lap seven and led the rest of the way to beat Spencer, fast qualifier Sheridan, Eric Rossi and Faas to the checkered flag.
