K&N Sponsored Kruseman Earns SprintCar Win at
Watsonville’s Ocean Speedway
|The simplest way to get a fresh perspective is to get out of your own house. Cory Kruseman
of Ventura, California made use of a of scenery change to change his luck, and dominated
the night at Ocean Speedway for his first USAC/CRA Sprint Car feature victory of the 2010
Cory Kruseman changed his scenery and changed his luck, with a dominating victory at the USAC/CRA Sprint Car feature at Watsonville Ocean Speedway.
“Our 410 sprint car team recently traveled to
Northern California for a two day show at
Watsonville’s Ocean Speedway and Petaluma
Speedway in Petaluma. We’ve always enjoyed
traveling away from our home track to tracks
we don’t run often at,” said Kruseman.
Kruseman not only won Friday at Watsonville,
but he was leading the following evening at
Petaluma when a broken part ended their
shot for two in a row.
“The race track just fit my driving style and
we were very good with our setup in the car.
The next night in Petaluma our car was really fast too, until a broken steering box let us down.
Our team feels like we have some momentum on our side now, and we look forward to
returning to Perris Auto Speedway.”
Kruseman started from the fifth position at Watsonville and wasted little time taking the
Lucas Oil/Agromin Mopar to the top of the track to rocket around the early race leader on
lap seven. Despite having multiple yellow flags erase his substantial lead, Kruseman was
unchallenged for the win. Clearly overcome with emotion in victory lane, Kruseman dedicated
the race win to Thomas McCune, a long time friend and crewman who passed away in May.
“He was a great friend and a heck of a good crew member, and he will be greatly missed,”
