Charles in Charge of ASCS Canyon Region at USA

Lonnie Wheatley, TUCSON, Ariz. (June 26, 2010) – Charles Davis, Jr., bolstered his American Sprint Car Series Canyon Region points lead by snaring his fourth series victory of the season in Saturday night’s 30-lap main event at USA Raceway.

After assuming command in the final rounds, Davis, Jr., held off two-time series champ Jeremy Sherman in traffic to secure the win aboard the Roush Yates Ford-powered Massey Motorsports No. 50 entry.

Leading the way from the pole position, Josh Pelkey was within ten circuits of his first ASCS win until clipping an infield tire and collecting second-runner Rick Ziehl in the process.

Davis, Jr., assumed the point and beat Sherman to the stripe, with Stevie Sussex, 14th-starter Andrew Reinbold and Ronnie Clark rounding out the top five.

Chris Bonneau was sixth, with “B” Main winner Bruce St. James, J.T. Imperial, Brian Hosford and Bob Ream, Jr., completing the top ten.

Pelkey, Ziehl and Ream, Jr., topped Saturday night’s heat race action before St. James won the “B” Main.
