Mike Spencer finished second to David Cardey Saturday night at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway and has a 24-point AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Car lead over Danny Sheridan in the new series standings going into back-to-back races this weekend. Friday night’s race is at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif. and Saturday night’s event is at the Petaluma (Calif.) Speedway.
Cardey, of Perris, took the lead from Spencer on a lap 28 restart and led the final three laps to win Saturday night’s 30-lap feature at the Perris Auto Speedway. Trailing Cardey and his Circle Track Performance Viper/Picks at the finish were Spencer, Danny Sheridan, Cory Kruseman and Blake Miller.
Sheridan led the first 10 laps and Spencer led the next 17.
