3.2.13 USAC CRA Sprints Results

Peoria, AZ……..Ricky Johnson of Phoenix, Ariz. wheeled the Weiler Farms/Pecon Builders Maxim to victory in Saturday night’s 30-lap “Copper on Dirt” AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Car feature at Canyon Speedway Park. Johnson passed Bruce St. James on the second lap and led the rest of the way for the win over Nic Faas, Bryan Clauson, Damion Gardner and Ryan Bernal. The win stopped Clauson’s “sweep” of the weekend races after he had won both Friday and Saturday’s Midgets and Friday’s Sprint. Fast qualifier Mike Spencer was forced out of the feature early with a tire issue.
