Sherman Ready To Defend His 2011 Sprint Car Title

Kevin Montgomery Peoria, ARIZ (March 21, 2012) – After capturing his fifth Arizona Sprint Car Title, Jeremy Sherman was relieved and elated that he accomplished something that only few dream of and even fewer ever have the opportunity to grasp. 

As Sherman saddles up for his 2012 title defense he looks forward to a new challenge and a new year, one with a little different approach, attitude and a brand new ride with the same familiar 21, in fact the same ride that carried Jon Stanbrough and, most recently, Casey Shuman to the podium. 

“Last year was great to win the championship but this year I want to focus on winning races,” commented Sherman.  “I want to be able to go out and race each race without worrying about points or a championship, just focus on winning races”

Sherman leads a stout field of Sunoco Fuels American Sprint Car Series standouts as they set sail for the 2012 Championship Season this Saturday night, March 24th, atop the 1/3-mile Canyon Speedway oval.   

With 21 confirmed dates, plus an additional trio of to be determined dates, making up the 2012 ASCS Canyon Region schedule, the 2012 season marks the sixth season of competition for the American Sprint Car Series’ lone non-wing division.

Going into the 2012 season Jeremy Sherman and Charles Davis Jr. are the undisputed kings of Arizona non-wing racing as the only two drivers to have earned championships in the Canyon Region; Sherman with three and Davis with two. Combined, the pair of drivers have accounted for 54 victories of the 94 races scheduled between 2007 and 2011.

Sherman and Davis will lead the wingless warriors along with X-Mods, ASCS2 Micros and Southwest Modlites into action this Saturday Night when general admission tickets go on sale at 5pm for only $15 for adults, Senior and Military $13, Juniors 7-12 $6 and CHILDREN 6 and UNDER are free. Racing will begin promptly at 7:00pm.
