MORRIS & CRAWFORD WIN MAINS – WILLIAMS WINS TITLE!
(Perris, CA, September 18, 2013) Bradley
Morris and veteran Jimmy Crawford won the PAS Young Gun and
Senior Sprint Car Main events and Logan Williams sewed up the
first ever PAS Young Guns championship in front of another
large crowd last Saturday night in the Glenn Howard Memorial
at “The Southern California Home of Major League Sprint Car
Racing,” Perris Auto Speedway.
Morris, who resides in nearby Menifee, got the jump on the
start over fellow Menifee resident and point leader Chancellor
Tiscareno. Lake Elsinore’s Parker Colston found his way to
second by end of the first circuit.
After a yellow flag on lap two, Morris stayed at the point
while Tiscareno and Williams relegated Colston back to fourth.
Williams then took the second spot from Tiscareno as the point
leader’s car was slowing dramatically. By the end of the third
circuit Tiscareno had dropped to the back. He ran a few more
laps at a very slow speed before officials black flagged him
for safety reasons. When he pulled into the pits, it was
clearly evident that a rod had exited through the oil pan.
By lap eight, Morris, who was seeking his second win in a row,
built a small lead, but Williams was not done. He charged back
up to the leader and dogged him all the way to the checkered
flag. Williams continually tried to find his way by on the
inside including a last corner effort, but Morris’ car stuck
like glue to the bottom and he scored the season closing win.
Williams claimed second and was followed by Colston, Hemet’s
Alexander Bissett and Menifee’s Mikey Lovas in the top five.
The dramatic night also decided the championship. Tiscareno,
who had been in the number one spot in the standings since
early May, had a heartbreaking end to the season. He came in
to the next to last race with an 18-point lead, but a lap one
tangle in that event saw him get upside down. His car was too
damaged to finish and he ended up last. Thus he came into
Saturday’s race with a 9-point lead. Had one less car showed
up either night or one car had dropped out of either main
before him, he would have tied Williams for the championship.
Likewise, if Williams had not missed the May 4th race, he
would have had a comfortable lead in the points heading into
the final race.
Williams won the championship by a mere 3-points over
Tiscareno. Lake Forest’s Mitch Collins ended up third, just
3-points in back of Ticareno. Lovas and Morris finished fourth
and fifth respectively in the championship standings.
Logan Williams of Yorba Linda, the teenage son of National
Sprint Car Hall of Famer Rip Williams, is the 2013 PAS Young
Gun Sprint Car champion.
Former Ventura Racing Association Sprint Car champion Jimmy
Crawford was making a rare appearance at The PAS as he was
shaking down his car for the October 31st Oval Nationals 360
Championship. Starting fifth in the 11-car field, he passed
2012 champion Bruce Douglass of Ventura on lap three and then
held off 2013 series point leader Rick Hendrix of Palmdale for
the win in the 20-lap Senior Sprint main event.
Despite a car that was smoking for most of the race, Crawford,
who calls Ventura home, led every inch of the way after taking
the lead. At one point, he had built up a comfortable
advantage, but Hendrix, who was trying to take his series
leading fourth PAS win of the campaign, chased Crawford down
and dogged him all the way to the finish. When the Kevin
Winters’ checkered flag brought the proceedings to a halt at
the end of lap 20, Crawford was two lengths in front of
Hendrix. Douglass was third, half a straightaway back. Santa
Clarita’s Bill Badger, the 2011 series champ, was fourth and
Santa Fe Springs Ed Schwarz was fifth.
Making a rare PAS appearance, Ventura’s Jimmy Crawford won The
PAS Senior Sprint Car Main event last Saturday night.
Heading into the Budweiser Oval Nationals Presented by All
Coast Construction on the first weekend in November, Hendrix
has an 18-point lead in the championship standings over
Douglass. Schwarz, who is 48-points behind, and Simi Valley’s
Victor Davis, who trails by 120-points, are the only other two
drivers with a mathematical chance of catching the leader.

Sprint Car heats and champion Williams won the Young Guns
