PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES TO RACE AT UKIAH SPEEDWAY JULY 29

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (February 14, 2017) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com has completed its 2017 schedule announcements with Ukiah Speedway set for July 29th.  The touring Super Late Model series is set for ten races at five tracks in 2017, spanning across northern and central California.

Located on the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds, the quarter-mile Ukiah Speedway has been a fixture on the series calendar from its inception.  PCS and Ukiah Speedway officials aim to make the most of the sole appearance at the track compared to three visits in 2016.  2012 and 2016 champion Jeremy Doss of nearby Upperlake, CA won two of last year’s races while series runner-up and 2014 champion Mike Beeler won the July race to be the event’s defending winner.

Drivers such as Hunter Corbitt and Chris Scribner earned their first career series wins at the track while JR Courage led 48 laps last July en route to a second place finish and 2016 Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt ran up front early in the May race.  The smaller track has produced some of the closest racing and creates perhaps the most even playing field in the series.

The 2017 Pacific Challenge Series fires off March 18th at Madera Speedway before traveling to Roseville’s All American Speedway on April 15th, Shasta Speedway on May 6th, and Stockton 99 Speedway on May 20th.

PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES TO RETURN TO SHASTA MAY 6

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (February 10, 2017) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com has confirmed the ninth date for its 2017 campaign, to bring the touring Super Late Model series to four tracks signed for the upcoming season.  The PCS will return to its largest track at Anderson, CA’s Shasta Speedway on May 6.  It will mark the seventh time PCS has raced at the 3/8ths mile located on the Tehama County Fairgrounds.

Tracy Bolin of Valley Springs earned his first career series win when he topped two-time series champion Jeremy Doss in a thriller last June.  The most successful driver at the track is arguably Eric Schmidt of Roseville, with multiple victories in both Open Show races and PCS events.  Schmidt won all four PCS races at Shasta in 2013 en route to the series championship.  He looked poised to win the 2016 event before a late race tangle with Doss ended his race on lap 77.  Schmidt also won the Memorial Day weekend Tri-Holiday race at Stockton for a strong partial season with PCS.

Pacific Challenge Series officials anticipate adding one additional race to complete the 2017 series calendar.  Racers will take on five different race tracks ranging from quarter-miles to 3/8ths miles in one of the most competitive series on the West Coast.

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (January 28, 2017) – The 2017 schedule for the Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com continues to be announced, with races at Roseville’s All American Speedway on tap.  The series plans to visit the one-third mile asphalt oval for three appearances on April 15th, June 24th, and October 14th.  All American Speedway joins Stockton 99 Speedway and Madera Speedway as confirmed tracks for the upcoming season of Super Late Model racing.

2009 track champion Jason Romero of Cameron Park, CA swept all four 2016 PCS races at his home track and will look to make a big impression again this year.  April 15th’s event has become a traditional event for the PCS and will serve as the second round of the 2017 season.

June 24th will be the second date for the series in Roseville during the Placer County Fair and joined by the North State Modified Series.  The fair race is one of the most well-attended and has also become a very traditional event for both the PCS and North State competition.

After two years of non-points status, the season-ending October 14th race will again be a championship points race.  A champion will be crowned at the conclusion of the event that serves as the undercard for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West.  The 2017 season finale will for the first time have the North State Modifieds on the program as well for a major motorsports event for the area.

The Pacific Challenge Series honored its top-ten drivers in the 2016 standings in last Saturday’s awards banquet.  In addition to crowning champion Jeremy Doss and Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt, special awards were claimed by Mike David (Crew Chief of the Year), Danny Malfatti (Sportsman of the Year), Tracy Bolin (Hard Charger of the Year), and Mike Beeler (Iron Man Award).

5.28.16 RECAP: Round #4 | Stockton 99 Speedway #1

ERIC SCHMIDT GETS LONG AWAITED STOCKTON PCS WIN

STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA (May 28, 2016) – Former Stockton 99 Speedway track champion Eric Schmidt won his first Pacific Challenge Series race at the venue, claiming the 100 lap Tri-Holiday Classic #1 on Saturday night.  The Roseville, CA driver is also a 2013 PCS champion and made the winning move on lap 96 at the quarter-mile paved oval.

Schmidt’s win on the 68 year old historic speedway was a popular one and came in a fast-paced night where the top-eight cars broke the track record.  Schmidt led that effort with a 13.291 second lap around the high-banked speedway.

Schmidt had to come from seventh on the grid after finishing in seventh in the American Racer Tire dash earlier in the night.  It was Ross Strmiska and Cole Moore leading the 20 car Super Late Model field down to green with a third- and a second-generation Stockton 99 regulars on the front row.

Strmiska led the opening 45 laps of the race with his new black, pink, and gold Dodge Challenger with Moore in tow.  By one fifth race distance the pair maintained a strong lead over 2015 SRL Champion Jacob Gomes in third.  Gomes took over second position from Moore on lap 42.  Gomes then passed Strmiska for the top-spot on lap 46.

Schmidt emerged into the top-five with 30 laps left to go and chipped his way through the top-five while Gomes enjoyed a commanding lead.  With ten laps to go Schmidt got around Moore and looked to challenge Gomes.  A late race incident involving Strmiska and Wendt set up the battle with Schmidt getting past Gomes on lap 96 to take the victory.  The top-five at the stripe were Schmidt, Gomes, points leader Jeremy Doss from eighth starting position, Moore, and 2014 PCS champion Mike Beeler in his typical late race charge.

Doss was the races’ hard charger while the Brakeometer prize for the fourth place finisher went to Cole Moore.  The Pacific Challenge Series continues a back-to-back stretch of races on Saturday night June 4th when they hit Anderson, CA and Shasta Speedway.  This will be the first points paying appearance for the tour since 2013 for the fast 3/8ths mile oval.
