For Immediate Release

PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY HOSTS 200th USAC/CRA SPRINT CAR RACE SATURDAY!

(Perris, CA, September 18, 2017) Saturday night, September 23rd, Perris Auto Speedway will play host to its 200th USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series race.  In addition, the race will also be the Annual Glenn Howard Classic.  Spectator gates will open at 5:00 P.M. and the first race will get the Kevin Winters’ green flag at 7:00.

“It is appropriate that Saturday’s 200th USAC/CRA race at The PAS is also the Glenn Howard Classic,” promoter Don Kazarian said on Monday afternoon.  “Glenn was very instrumental when the USAC/CRA Series was formed over the winter of 2003-04.  It is safe to say that without his input, there may not have been a USAC/CRA Series.  Glenn was a man who did everything in racing from being a driver, car owner, racing business owner to being an official.  Everyone looked to him for advice and he was liked by everyone he ever came in contact with.”

Kazarian continued about the historic 200th race.

“I had no idea we had hosted that many races in the series until Lance Jennings (USAC PR Man) brought it up,” Kazarian said with a smile.  “The first one was the 2004 season opener and Mike Kirby won the main event.  It has been a longtime good series and it features the best drivers on the West Coast.  We are honored to be its home track.”

Among those good drivers is Laveen, Arizona’s R.J. Johnson.  In 2005, then 18-year-old Johnson won the USAC/CRA “Rookie of the Year” award.  Since that time, the second-generation driver has won multiple Arizona sprint car championships and over the last three months, he has dominated the last three USAC/CRA races at The PAS.  He has won all three of the 30-lap main events (June 24th, July 22nd and August 26th) and he has led 89 of the 90 laps.

“The last three races R.J. Johnson has whipped up on the locals,” Kazarian commented.  “He has the track dialed in right now and has been running away from the field.  With the way he has been making it look easy, you have to throw his hat in the ring as one of the main contenders for November’s Budweiser Oval Nationals presented by All Coast Construction.  Good for him.  R.J., his dad and the entire crew are great people.  It is nice to see them have so much success not only in Arizona, but here as well.”

Trying to stop Johnson from his fourth PAS win in a row will be 5-time USAC/CRA champ and current point leader Damion Gardner of Concord, Brody Roa of Garden Grove, Anaheim’s Jake Swanson, 5-time series “King” Mike Spencer of Temecula, Austin Williams of Yorba Linda and a bevy of other drivers.

The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprints will also be in action on Saturday and it will be there next to last race of the year.  Richard McCormick of Canyon Country holds a 22-point lead over Palmdale’s Rick Hendrix in the Senior Sprints.  In the Young Guns, it is much tighter as Hannah Mayhew, a college student from Acton, leads 15-year-old Covina High student Joel Rayborne by a mere four-points.

Adult tickets for Saturday’s race are $25.00.  Seniors 65 and older get in for $20.00.  Active military members with proper id, teens 13-18 with their school id and gets age 6-12 get in for $5.00.  Children 5 and under are free.  Parking on the fairgrounds is $8.00.

Advanced tickets for Saturday’s event are available 24-hours a day by calling 1-800-595-4849 or online at http://pas.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=922980.  For those who do not wish to purchase advance tickets, there will be plenty of tickets available for everyone at the ticket window on Saturday.
