RECAP: Round #13 | All American Speedway

PCS OCTOBER CLASSIC AT ROSEVILLE GOES TO ROMERO

ROSEVILLE, CALIFORNIA (October 16, 2016) – On a spooky evening at Roseville’s All American Speedway, Jason Romero of Cameron Park stormed to victory in the third annual October Classic for the Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com.  Saturday night’s abbreviated 50 lap feature was shortened due to weather but that did not deter Romero from completing a perfect 4-0 season in PCS competition at the facility.

Romero won all three PCS points races at the one-third mile asphalt oval before winning Saturday’s non-points race.  The event served as the undercard for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West “Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by TriCo Welding Supply”.

The second practice session of the afternoon served as qualifying due to the rain shortened schedule, with multi-time All American Speedway champion Eric Schmidt earning fast-time with a 13.306 second lap.  A straight up start placed Schmidt on the pole for the 50 lap feature.

Romero trailed Schmidt by just .032 in qualifying and proved that to be no fluke in the race.  The top-two ran side-by-side for the first five laps of the race with Romero edging forward on the outside.  Romero officially led lap three at the line by a nose and again led lap four before clearing Schmidt on lap five.

Three-time All American Speedway champion Matt Scott and 2016 PCS champion Jeremy Doss both overhauled Schmidt to knock him back to fourth by lap ten.  Schmidt managed to get third back from Doss by the halfway point of the race.

2016 Tri-Holiday #3 winner Travis Milburn of Eagle, ID took fifth from Doss’ teammate Jeff Bischofberger at nearly the same time and then turned his attention to Doss.  Milburn took fourth from Doss but never got the caution flag he needed to close things up with the top-three.

Romero used the all green flag event to put laps on former PCS champions Mike Beeler and John Moore among others as he held off Scott by three car lengths at the finish.  Schmidt, Milburn, and Doss rounded out the top-five in the rapid non-stop race as the only lead lap finishers.  Milburn’s run from seventh was enough for the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger Award as well.

JEREMY DOSS WINS PCS SEASON FINALE AT UKIAH TO CLAIM CHAMPIONSHIP

UKIAH, CALIFORNIA (October 1, 2016) – Upperlake, CA’s Jeremy Doss won his all-time best 19th career Pacific Challenge Series race, winning a thriller to take the 2016 championship on Saturday night at Ukiah Speedway.  The 75 lap contest saw the lead change hands multiple times in the final 20 laps, with Doss fending off 2015 and 2016 runner-up Mike Beeler of Modesto for a narrow victory.  Saturday’s races were presented by PenneyLawyers.com

Manteca’s JR Courage finished second at Ukiah in July after leading the much of the first half of that race.  He followed up on that performance by winning the American Racer Tire Dash on Saturday worth a set of tires and the pole for the feature.

2016 PCS Rookie of the Year Matthew Wendt took the lead on the initial start from the outside pole and brought Beeler with him on lap eight.  Courage was forced up to the outside line by Beeler, and despite enjoying the outside line in the dash Courage fell back to fifth.

Tracy’s Jeff Bischofberger got around Doss for third on lap 25 when Doss swung wide coming out of turn four fighting a loose condition and no power steering.  The lead pack of Wendt, Beeler, and Bischofberger staged a very intense battle that thrilled the fans on a cold night, with Wendt doing a great job fighting off the touring stock car veterans for many laps.

The tight exciting action on the quarter-mile continued when Courage took fourth from Doss as well.  Beeler tagged Wendt in turn one on lap 55 and in the process lost second to Bischofberger.  Bischofberger turned up the heat on Wendt as well with it boiling over on lap 65.  Wendt slid off the track on the backstretch and bounced over the off ramp sending him sliding through the infield.  Wendt slid back onto turn three and was clipped by Bischofberger, ending both of their nights.

Beeler assumed the top position with ten laps to go with Courage restarting on the outside and Doss inside the second row.  Doss used the restart to dash up into second and a side-by-side battle ensued.

Doss took the lead on lap 70 and Beeler gave his all in several attempts to take the lead back.  With two to go, the pair banged doors down the front stretch before separating.  Doss was able to survive an onslaught of late race challenges for a two car length victory over Beeler with Courage third, Danny Malfatti fourth as the final finisher.

Loomis’ Chris Scribner lost his engine in the dash to end his evening early.  Danny Malfatti won the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger award.
