DOUGLASS AND WILLIAMS STAY PERFECT AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!
(Perris, CA, May 9, 2014)
Veteran Bruce Douglass and young gasser Trent Williams continued to bat 1,000 for the 2014 season when they won the PAS Senior Sprint and PAS Young Gun Sprint Car main events last Saturday night at Perris Auto Speedway. Douglass win was his third in a row to start the season while Williams made it two straight to open the campaign in the Young Guns.

The deck was stacked early on for Douglass in the 20-lap Senior main event. The 62-year-old Ventura resident was starting 10th in the blue Victor Davis #13 Lucas Oil sprint car. The veteran racer had a lot of cars to pass to get to the point and he made it look as easy as slicing a hot knife through warm butter. First year Senior Sprint driver Rich Bender set the tempo at the start with two-time Ventura winner Steve Brown of Corona giving early chase. However, by the time the 13-car field completed the first circuit, Douglass was already in fifth and moving towards the front of the pack like an out of control locomotive.

By the end of the second go around, Brown had relieved Bender of the top spot and Douglass had advanced two more positions towards the front and was in \third. Brown had established a good size lead before Douglass took second and then chased down the leader. The two engaged in a brief, spirited duel before Douglass knifed his way into the lead with an inside move at the end of the sixth lap.

Once out front Douglass raced away to a convincing advantage. The only roadblock on his way to the checkered came when Santa Inez driver Bob Alderman was shaken and a red flag came out bringing the proceedings to a halt. Once the action resumed, Douglass continued to rampage away from the field. With a steady grasp on the impending victory, the talkative 2012 PAS champ thrilled the crowd when he split two laps cars just for fun entering turn three the last time. A few moments later, he bagged his third win of the 2014 campaign.

Bill Badger of Santa Clarita, the original PAS Senior champion in 2011, came all the way from 11th to finish second behind Douglass with San Diego’s Jesse Denome third. Brown came home in the fourth spot with defending champion Rick Hendrix of Palmdale fifth.

Earlier in the night Douglass and Badger won the two eight lap heat races.

Williams, a 17-year-old from Victorville, started on the pole for the Young Guns main and took the lead on the start before seeing Holtville’s George Morris fly by for the top spot in turn four on the first lap. Morris held the point until Williams returned the favor in the same spot on the track on the third lap. It quickly became apparent that Williams’ white Victory Race Cars/Sunset Wraps/Continental Auto Body/DSM Motorsports /Pick’s Racing Engine/Circle Track Performance #52 was going to be hard to beat. However, he had to fight off challenges and saw his lead disappear a few time due to yellow flags. When the checkered finally ended the race, he had a several car length lead over Lake Forest’s Mitchell Collins. Fifteen-year-old Parker Colston of Lake Elsinore was third followed by newly engaged Malyssa Young of Oak Hills and Morris.

Colston won the six-lap Young Gun heat race.

The Senior Sprints, for drivers 45 and older, and the Young Guns, for drivers 14-21, will return to the PAS along with the Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and the California Lightning Sprint Cars at the Annual Salute o Indy on May 24th.
