BISCHOFBERGER GETS FIRST PCS VICTORY IN STOCKTON THRILLER

STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA (May 21, 2017) – Tracy’s Jeff Bischofberger became the third first-time winner in three 2017 Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com races, claiming the first Tri-Holiday race of the year at Stockton 99 Speedway.  Saturday night’s 100 lap contest came down to a 10 lap shootout between Bischofberger and Jason Romero with four career series wins.

Romero took over the lead from 2012 and 2016 PCS champion Jeremy Doss of Upperlake, CA on lap 62 when Doss slowed with a broken third link.  Doss also set fast time with a blistering 13.140 second lap earlier in Sunoco Fuels Fast Time qualifying.

A five car battle for fourth boiled over down the backstretch when Shasta winner Derek Copeland was bounced out of the battle and spun to a stop.  That caution appeared to set up what would be a great battle between Romero and 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore, who was searching for his first career PCS win as well.

Two attempts at a restart were unsuccessful, with officials electing to move Romero and Moore back a row to set a new front row of Bischofberger and early race leader Ross Strmiska of Manteca.

Bischofberger quickly charged ahead of Strmiska into turn one of the restart with Romero following into second position.  Romero dove inside Bischofberger several times including a big maneuver coming to the white flag in turn four that did not net the lead position.  Romero gave it one more shot in turn four coming to the checkered flag, eventually sliding and bouncing off of Bischofberger.  Bischofberger drove through to take the checkered flag first with Moore snaking through for second while Romero crossed the line sideways in third.  Romero ended up against the turn one wall after the wild slide with 2014 PCS champion Mike Beeler of Modesto fourth and 2015 PCS champion John Moore rounding out the top-five.

Strmiska jumped out to the race’s early lead with Beeler a focal point for much of the early battling when he got pinned outside.  Moore moved inside Strmiska for the lead on lap 20 and cleared him on the following lap.  Doss wasted little time chasing down Moore when he overtook Strmiska on lap 26 for second.

A lap 27 caution allowed Romero to get around Beeler for third.  Bischofberger was the next driver to get on the move as he was up to fourth by lap 37.  Romero’s run to the front continued when he took over second place from Moore on lap 47.

Romero clawed at Doss before a caution when Matt Wendt and Strmiska made contact that resulted in Wendt stopping in turn four on lap 59.  Wendt was able to return after repairs.  Doss’ days at the lead appeared numbered as Romero looked inside several times before finally getting the move done right as Doss faltered and stopped in turn two with mechanical problems to cause a lap 61 caution.

Cole Moore won the American Racer Tire Dash for a set of tires and the pole for the feature.  Hayward’s Danny Malfatti drove to seventh to win the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger for his best career Stockton finish.  Wendt overcame the early incident with Strmiska for his second consecutive sixth place finish.

The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will continue on June 17th at All American Speedway in Roseville, CA.

RECAP: Round #2 | Shasta Speedway

COPELAND SCORES ONE FOR THE HOME TEAM WITH BIG PCS SHASTA WIN

ANDERSON, CALIFORNIA (May 6, 2017) – Anderson’s Derek Copeland led a strong contingent of local drivers taking on the Pacific Challenge Series regulars on Saturday night at Shasta Speedway, grabbing the Spring Shootout 100 presented by PenneyLawyers.com.  Copeland’s victory makes him the second first-time PCS winner in 2017 in as many races, joining Madera winner Carlos Vieira in that club.

The victory came in a hard earned 14 lap shootout against a 19 car turnout at the 3/8ths mile speedway.

Jason Romero again flexed his qualifying muscle scoring quick-time with a new track record at 15.406 in his first Shasta PCS start.  The series held a pair of dashes with the B Dash for the lower qualified cars won by local Trevor Harrison for $200.  Redding’s Eric Gannon drew the pole for the A Dash but Romero swept past him on the outside line to take the $500 victory worth the pole for the 100 lap feature.

Romero led the field to the green flag and charged away with fourth starting Copeland rolling the outside to quickly assume second place.  2006 Westcar Series Shasta winner Shannon Mansch pounced on Gannon for third by lap eight and eventually a five car line fought for the position.  Cole Moore ran side-by-side with father John Moore for the fourth spot several times as well early in the race.

Romero surrendered the lead with a flat right rear tire on lap 18, allowing Copeland to take control of the race.  The first caution did not come out until lap 23 when 2016 Shasta winner Tracy Bolin had contact with Matt Wendt.  Bolin’s race was over when he retired to the pits with front end damage.

Romero re-emerged from the pits with a new right rear tire although he was four laps behind.  A thrilling battle unfolded for the second position with Mansch trying to hold off John Moore, Cole Moore, and Travis Milburn.  The battle intensified on lap 47 with Mansch and John Moore sliding off of turn four but the race stayed under green.  Mike Beeler and Eric Gannon raced nose-to-tail for the sixth position until Gannon slowed on lap 55 with an issue and a lap later Cole Moore stopped in turn three with a distributor issue.  Both Gannon and Cole Moore failed to return to the race.

Copeland motored away on the restart while Milburn took several looks inside John Moore for third.  The jockeying continued nose-to-tail until lap 81 when Milburn turned up the wick on Moore and took over third.  He worked past Mansch one lap later to run second.  A caution for a slowing Ryan Peeples of Anderson on lap 86 set up a 14 lap shootout to the finish.  Robert Vining had a wheel come off under caution as well.

Copeland picked the inside line for the critical restart alongside Milburn.  The restart went well for Copeland and he drove away from Milburn, who found himself freighttrained by Moore as well.  Milburn slid into third with Beeler overhauling Mansch for fourth in the closing stages of the race.  Copeland claimed the 1.3 second victory ahead of John Moore, Milburn, Beeler, and Mansch.  2016 Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt ran sixth with Chris Scribner seventh.  Jason Romero recovered to finish ninth.  Trevor Harrison advanced from 15th to finish eighth to win the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger.

John Moore will lead Mike Beeler by six points in the championship standings heading into Stockton 99 Speedway, when the series competes in round #1 of the Tri-Holiday Series on May 20th.

VIEIRA OUTLASTS ROMERO FOR FIRST CAREER PCS WIN AT MADERA

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 18, 2017) – Carlos Vieira scored his first career PCS victory, as the Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com opened up its season Saturday night at Madera Speedway for the Smokey Hanoian 75.  Vieira led the final 56 laps of competition but not without late company from fast time qualifier Jason Romero.

“It feels awesome,” Vieira said.  “The car was solid man.  The outside line – I felt pretty confident with it.  That first restart I chose the bottom and that was a big mistake.”

“Man I was doing everything this car had,” Romero said.  “I needed another maybe 25 more laps.  My front brakes were gone.  I was putting rear into it, making it cut.”

Romero opened the afternoon with a 14.428 second lap to lead qualifying but it was Granite Bay’s Cole Moore, the 2015 Rookie of the Year, winning the American Racer Tire Dash for the pole and a set of tires.

15 PCS Super Late Models roared to the green flag on the one-third mile speedway with outside polesitter Vieira using the outside line to take the early lead.  Side by side racing was the name of game during an intense lead battle between Vieira and Moore.  The first caution came on lap six when Chris Scribner stopped on the front stretch with fuel pump issues.

Vieira chose the inside for the following restart which proved to be to Moore’s favor as he led lap seven by a nose before Vieira edged back to lead lap eight.  Moore finally cleared Vieira on lap nine.  The next caution flag proved crucial as Romero spun down the backstretch after a mix up with defending series champion Jeremy Doss.  Both drivers had to restart at the rear.

Moore selected the outside on the restart and that decision not only propelled him to the lead but allowed his father John to roll into third and Ryan Philpott to roll the top into fifth.  Philpott’s strong performance expired on lap 14 with mechanical problems.

Vieira crawled back onto Moore and the duo went side-by-side again on lap 15.  The caution flew on lap 16 when rookie Jack Wood spun on the front stretch.  Moore again picked the outside but Vieira showed he had the right stuff as he took over the lead on lap 19.

Travis Milburn fended off Doss in an entertaining battle for fourth before Doss surrendered to the pits with problems on lap 35.  Romero found himself mired in traffic battling Tracy Bolin and 2016 Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt just outside the top-five.

Wood and Danny Malfatti had a collision in turn four for the next caution on lap 34.  Romero jumped forward on the following restart to pass John Moore for fourth.  Milburn too fell out of the race on lap 43 with mechanical woes and that set the stage for Romero to take third and move towards the leaders.

Romero and Moore staged a thrilling side-by-side affair that gave Vieira the chance to pull his cushion to nearly three seconds.  By the time Romero got away on lap 61, he ran both of his fastest laps of the race in open traffic to claw at Vieira.  Vieira stayed tough in late lapped traffic for a .487 second victory – three car lengths – in the satisfying victory.

Cole Moore crossed the stripe third but was penalized for an RPM infraction in post race inspection.  John Moore assumes third ahead of 2014 champion Mike Beeler and Bolin.  Rookie Alexander Mead drove from 14th to seventh to earn the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger in his series debut.

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.

JASON ROMERO COMPLETES SWEEP OF PCS RACES AT ROSEVILLE

ROSEVILLE, CALIFORNIA (September 24, 2016) – 2009 All American Speedway champion Jason Romero continued his pure dominance at the speedway, taking his third consecutive Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com victory at the track in 2016.  Romero again fought hard with points leader Jeremy Doss, who inched closer to his second series championship as well.  The race had six lead changes and four different leaders in the 100 lap contest.

2015 PCS champion John Moore of Granite Bay won the American Racer Tire Dash for a set of American Racer Tires and for the pole position alongside his son, 2015 Rookie of the Year Cole Moore.  After an exciting side-by-side battle, John Moore took off with the lead position by a couple of car lengths.

Former Roseville Late Model champions Romero and three-time champ Matt Scott occupied row two and both drivers went after Cole Moore.  Scott took over second on lap 14 with Romero making a nice inside move on lap 17 in turn three to take third.

John Moore, Scott, and Romero ran nose-to-tail through lapped traffic while teammates Doss and Jeff Bischofberger jostled past 2014 champion Mike Beeler of Modesto.  The strong battles gave Doss fifth and Bischofberger sixth, critical moves in the championship hunt.  Things intensified for the lead position and Scott led lap 29.  Contact between the top-three caused a left rear flat tire for John Moore sending him spinning on that same lap.

Scott led just the 29th lap as Romero swooped past on the outside to take the lead on the restart.  Beeler used the restart to come back at Bischofberger as well in a side-by-side battle.  Bischofberger drove away to challenge Cole Moore and take over fourth on lap 51.  The caution flew on that lap for Danny Malfatti spinning in turn four and Scott was forced to surrender second position with a fluid leak that ended his night.

Romero charged away from Doss on the ensuing restart, before a caution for Tracy Bolin sliding up the hill in turn one and nearly tagging the wall.  He was able to pit and make repairs to return to the race.  Cole Moore and Romero suffered damage in the melee but continued.  Doss used the restart to take the lead from Romero on the outside and he held the top position for three laps as the two slid around the track door handle to door handle.  Romero took the lead back on lap 59.

Beeler stalled on lap 87 for a caution period but he was able to return after a pit stop.  Lapped traffic was still mixed in with the leaders, causing contact that damaged the front suspension on John Moore’s car as he came to a stop for a lap 90 caution.  With ten laps to go, lapped cars were pulled out giving Doss another opportunity to race Romero.  He led just the 91st lap and Romero took the lead back.

The pair remained locked side-by-side to the approval of the crowd before the battle was nullified when Chris Scribner came back on the track after a stop in the pits.  Romero snuck through and never relinquished the lead, while Bischofberger used the incident to overtake his teammate Doss for second as well at the finish.

Stockton Labor Day Weekend winner Travis Milburn of Eagle, ID had a steady race for fourth with Cole Moore rounding out the top-five.  Milburn’s drive from tenth starting position to fourth earned him the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger award.

MILBURN WINS THRILLING THIRD ROUND OF TRI-HOLIDAY AT STOCKTON

STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA (September 3, 2016) – Eagle, ID’s Travis Milburn was the sixth and final leader of a thrilling race at Stockton 99 Speedway on Saturday night, leading the last 18 laps for a $2500 victory.  The Tri-Holiday Series race was the tenth round of the Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com and gave Milburn his first 2016 to win to go with a June victory at Roseville last year as well.  Milburn fended off March Madera winner Jacob Gomes in a very exciting finish that thrilled a strong crowd at the 68 year old historic quarter-mile facility.

Jeremy Doss’ seventh place finish was enough to give him the Tri-Holiday Series championship by two points over Gomes as well.

Jeff Bischofberger won the American Racer Tire Dash for $500 to win but was overhauled by Valley Springs’ Tracy Bolin at the start with Bolin taking the lead.  Manteca’s Ross Strmiska followed through to take second as well.

Bischofberger tangled with Granite Bay’s Cole Moore for the first caution of the race on lap five when Bischofberger spun.  Both drivers had to go to the rear for the ensuing restart.  Strmiska used the restart to snatch away the lead from Bolin on lap six.

Sunoco Fuels Fast Time Jason Romero of Cameron Park worked his way around Bolin for second on lap 13 and set his sights on the leader.  Romero and Strmiska ran side-by-side on several occasions before the pair approached lapped traffic.  Romero tried one more move to the inside of Strmiska, resulting in contact into turn four that sent Romero spinning.  Romero was then hit hard by Bolin as well.  The incident ended both Romero and Bolin’s evenings and forced Strmiska to the rear of the field.

 

Points leader Jeremy Doss assumed the lead position but did not lead it for a complete lap as Modesto’s Mike Beeler shot up the inside to be the third different leader on lap 23.  Doss fought back on lap 35 and took the lead on lap 37.  Milburn spun on lap 40 for a caution while things were heating up between Gomes and Matt Scott within the top-five.

Beeler and Doss traded the lead on lap 44, before Doss took over again and brought Scott and Gomes with him on the following laps.  The trio of young drivers then anchored the field for much of the closing laps while Cole Moore and Milburn continued to regain positions navigating through the field.

A big crash on lap 71 brought the race to a red flag halt when Kyle Gottula slammed into the back of Strmiska in turn four.  Both drivers were out of the race with Gottula disqualified from points and purse for his involvement.

Matt Scott made a bold move inside Doss into turn one that forced both drivers up the hill and out of the top-five but it was nullified by a caution for debris off of Adam Coonfield’s car.  On the second attempt, Doss managed to drive away from Scott with Gomes taking over second as well.  the caution came out again on lap 75 when Beeler and Cole Moore got together.

Gomes seized the lead from Doss on lap 75 and two laps later JR Courage and John Moore had a melee.  Beeler spun again on lap 81 for the race’s final caution period.

Milburn took his shot at Gomes from the outside on the restart and took over the lead at lap 82.  Gomes remained within striking distance all the way to the finish.   On the white flag lap, Gomes tagged Milburn in turn three and dove to the inside to the give the fans a close finish.  Milburn ripped across the stripe with the win by just a nose ahead of Gomes, Scott, Cole Moore, and John Moore.

Doss slipped backwards after losing the lead to eventually finish seventh, while Courage and Wendt went across the finish line against the wall in a large crash to punctuate the race.

Jacob Gomes won the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger driving from 11th starting position to finish second.  A strong purse of $2500 to win and $500 to start was presented by Reeves Sand and Gravel and Sunny Valley Smoked Meats.

The Pacific Challenge Series championship continues with its 11th and penultimate round on September 24th at Roseville’s All American Speedway.  For more information on the Pacific Challenge Series, visit them online at www.PacificChallengeSeries.com or on Facebook and YouTube.

JEREMY DOSS WINS MADERA PCS ON MAVTV FOR 18TH CAREER WIN

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (August 13,  2016) – 2012 Pacific Challenge Series champion Jeremy Doss picked up his 18th career victory at Madera Speedway on Saturday night, driving away from Clovis’ Bryan Herzog for the 75 lap win. The 19 year-old Kulwicki Driver Development Program member extended his points lead by 32 points over 2014 champion Mike Beeler as well.  The MAVTV-televised race will air at a later date during the “Madera Racing” program.

Jason Romero of Cameron Park made his first Madera start and first PCS start outside of All American Speedway, after sweeping both Roseville races this year.  He led practice, set a new track record at a 14.162, and proceeded to win the American Racer Tire dash for a set of tires and the pole position.

Romero’s pole was short lived at the start of the feature as Valley Springs’ Tracy Bolin swept around the outside to lead lap one.  Romero fell into the clutches of Doss for second in a back-and-forth battle until Romero spun with contact from Ross Strmiska on lap five.  Lodi’s Matt Wendt suffered a flat right front tire and slight damage trying to avoid the spin.  Mike Beeler also was caught up in the incident.

Doss took over the lead from Bolin on the restart and Herzog used the restart to get around Jeff Bishofberger for third.  Meanwhile tenth starting Shannon Mansch of Roseville was up into fifth.  Loomis’ Chris Scribner led a train of cars for sixth position with Idaho’s Travis Milburn in the mix for that position.

Milburn started turning up the heat as he got around Scribner for sixth on lap 24 and then overhauled Mansch for fifth on the outside on lap 32.  Justin Westmoreland slowed to the pits in his first 2016 PCS start on lap 36.

The Herzog and Bischofberger battle was very physical with the drivers snaking three-wide through lapped traffic.  The long 34 lap green flag run ended on lap 40 for a brief caution.  Lap 41 proved to be difficult to overcome with a series of spins.  Most notably Wendt suffered damage when he tangled with Strmiska.

Romero was still mired outside the top-ten and made a dramatic three-wide maneuver to try to get around JR Courage.  Colby Potts suffered heavy front end damage to his Camaro and a few laps later tangled hard with Don Swartz’ Mustang for a lap 45 caution.  Potts was done for the evening.

All the following restarts were single file which gave Doss a cushion over the continuing battling between Bolin and Herzog.  Herzog got around on the outside for second on lap 49 to turn his attention to Doss.  Mansch spun with contact from Strmiska for a lap 51 caution that set up the battle to the finish.

Herzog made his mark, diving inside Doss several times and making contact in turn four to lead lap 55.  Doss charged back on the outside to lead lap 56 and would not be deterred as he drove away for a 1.7 second win ahead of Herzog, Bolin, Bischofberger, and Romero for a comeback run to fifth.  Travis Milburn’s drive from 13th starting position to sixth was good enough for the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger.

The Pacific Challenge Series continues on to round #10 on Saturday September 3rd at Stockton 99 Speedway for the third round of the Tri-Holiday Series.

MIKE BEELER GETS SECOND CONSECUTIVE PCS WIN WITH UKIAH VICTORY

UKIAH, CALIFORNIA (July 16, 2016) – 2014 Pacific Challenge Series champion Mike Beeler of Modesto became only the second repeat winner of 2016, and first back-to-back winner, taking a thrilling win in Saturday’s round #8 at Ukiah Speedway.  The PenneyLawyers.com-sponsored series produced an intense race on Fan Appreciation Night.

Lodi’s Matthew Wendt won the Sunoco Fuels Fast Time award after tying Beeler in qualifying with a 12.645 lap around the quarter-mile asphalt oval.  The American Racer Tire dash proved his undoing as he only finished seventh while Loomis’ Chris Scribner got the win for a set of tires and the pole for the feature.

Scribner elected for the outside for the initial start and Manteca’s JR Courage used that to his advantage to take the initial lead.  Wendt wasted little time charging forward and was up to fifth by the fourth lap of the race.

Courage took off for a small lead before Leytonville’s Corey James and Beeler reeled him in.  Courage consistently fought a loose condition forcing him to give up the bottom line to James.  James finally jumped inside Courage down the backstretch on lap 28 but Courage shut the door hard to keep the lead.

Shasta winner Tracy Bolin found a way to get around Wendt for fifth which dropped Wendt into a battle with Sacramento’s Michael Roman.  The battle got physical with lots of contact before they slammed doors in turn three and Roman took the position at the conclusion of lap 34.

Wendt eventually escaped to the pits with a flat tire on lap 42.  He was able to return to the race a short time later however.

Roman spun off of the track in turns one and two for the first caution on lap 46 that set up a spectacular crash on the restart.  Courage picked the inside line and raced side-by-side with James for half a lap, before James fell back into the clutches of Beeler.  They raced side-by-side through turn four before James bounced off the wall, collecting both Bolin and Grass Valley’s Don Swartz.  Bolin suffered heavy front end damage that caused a fire under the hood as well.

After a brief red flag, Roman, Wendt, and James all returned to the track but Swartz and Bolin were eliminated.  Mike Beeler took his challenge to Courage on the restart and swept past him on the outside at the conclusion of lap 49.
Beeler saw his lead ebb and flow by a car length to upwards of three car lengths all the way to the checkered flag, while Courage took on Scribner for second in a great battle.

Beeler scored win number two of 2016 in a back-to-back victory to go with his win on July 2nd at Stockton.  Courage, Scribner, Roman, and James rounded out the top-five.  Beeler also won the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger as well.

The Pacific Challenge Series will roll into Madera Speedway on August 13th for a 75 lap feature to be televised on MAVTV.  Madera Speedway is a one-third mile asphalt oval located on the Madera Fairgrounds
