Jason York scores firts career USAC
/ CRA win - By Ken Wagner - 08/21/04 - Perris, CA…The Valvoline
USAC/CRA sprint car series returned to Perris after a six-week hiatus, and
another first time winner reminded the large crowd what they had been missing.
Great racing! Jason York, who normally runs the Nor Cal wing series, promised
during one of his early season visits here that he would be back after their
season ended. And, return he did! After a tough night at Kings Speedway
with USAC/CRA last week, Jason came to the PAS and won his first ever non-wing
heat race. In what could be summed up as a "dream like" night, he followed
his heat win with a 30 lap wire-to-wire victory in the Main Event. Jason
was in full control until a late race charge by Cory "the Kruser" Kruseman.
Jason had some tough decisions on how to handle lapped traffic late in the
race, and became a little too conservative, giving back some of the straightaway
lead he had seized over the first 20 laps.
