SCHWARZ WINS SENIOR SPRINTS AND BENDER WINS YOUNG GUNS!
(Perris, CA, April 10, 2013) Ed Schwarz reversed the opening night results when he beat Rick Hendrix to the checkered flag in The PAS Senior Sprint Car Series at Perris Auto Speedway last Saturday night and A.J. Bender was the winner of the first ever PAS Young Guns Sprint Car Series main event for drivers age 14-21.

Schwarz, 58, from Santa Fe Springs, started on the outside of the front row in the 10-car, 20-lap main event. He got the jump on the start on Lake Forest’s “Hubcap” Mike Collins and Hendrix, who resides in Palmdale. Hendrix raced past Collins for second at the end of the opening circuit and the chase was on.

Schwarz built up a decent size lead over the first three go rounds on the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval, but Hendrix, a three-time USAC racing champion, started to close the gap on the fourth lap.

Things went smooth through the first 11 laps, but trouble brewed on lap 12 which saw two yellow flags. Both of those times, Schwarz streaked away on the restarts, but Hendrix eventually reeled him in, but he could not get by. At the Kevin Winters’ checkered flag, Hendrix was a close second, but it was Schwarz for his first ever win at The PAS. 2012 champion Bruce Douglass of Ventura was third, followed by Simi Valley’s Victor Davis and Collins.

Not only did Schwarz win the main event, but he swept the show as earlier in the evening he won the eight-lap heat race.

After two races, Schwarz and Hendrix are tied for first in the championship standings and Davis and Douglass are tied for third, 15 points behind the lead duo.

Saturday also saw the debut of The PAS Young Gun Sprint Car Series, presented by “The Sprint Car Driving Experience,” for drivers age 14-21. Like Schwarz, Bender, a 20-year-old college student from San Diego, started on the outside of the front row and he led all 12-laps of the Young Gun main event. He was chased on the start by Victorville’s Trent Williams of and Rip Williams’ youngest son, 17-year-old Logan from Yorba Linda. Logan Williams passed 16-yearo-old Trent Williams (no relation) for second on lap seven.

By the time Logan Williams took second, the personable Bender had checked out and he raced off and made PAS history by winning the first Young Guns main event by nearly a half straightaway. Trent Williams, Austin Smith of Chino Hills, Mitch Collins of Lake Forest and Chancellor Tiscareno of Menifee rounded out the six-car field. Logan Williams won the first ever Young Guns heat race.

The PAS Senior Sprints, for drivers 45-years-old and older and The PAS Young Guns, will return to action on Saturday May 4th along with the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars. If you are interested in running either of these series, please call The PAS office for all of the details at (951) 940-0134.

The two drivers whose names are drawn will each receive a $500.00 gift certificate from 777 Racecars.
