Sherman Shines in ASCS Canyon Hank Arnold Memorial Finale

Lonnie Wheatley, TUCSON, Ariz. (September 5, 2010) – Two-time American Sprint Car Series Canyon Region champion Jeremy Sherman picked off his second series win of the year by topping Sunday night’s Hank Arnold Memorial finale at USA Raceway.

Sherman climbed from the tenth starting position to snare his 28th career ASCS Canyon Region triumph, vaulting from fourth to second in the series points chase in the process.

Sherman took the checkered flag ahead of Saturday night Arnold Memorial winner R.J. Johnson, who rallied from 15th only to fall one position short of sweeping the weekend double atop the Tucson clay oval.

Current series points leader Charles Davis, Jr., claimed the show position, with Josh Pelkey and pole starter Rick Ziehl rounding out the top five. Stevie Sussex was sixth, with Chris Bonneau, Mike Martin, Brian Hosford and 21st-starter Dalten Gabbard completing the top ten.

Martin, Davis and Justin Quinn won Sunday night’s heat races.
