What an exciting weekend at Shasta Speedway!! The weather was awesome and the track was super fast! Randy Houston turned a blistering 15.545 lap for a new track record
Jr. Roddy won this week’s Dash for Cash, Heat #1 win went to Dennis Lowe of Roseville, and the Heat #2 win went to Bobby Hirschbock
It was great to have several new faces this weekend including Hayden Pederson (#16 Bill McAnally Racing/Napa Auto Parts), #21 Dennis Lowe of Roseville, #5 Chris Scribner out of Loomis, and #55 Dana Bowers from Medford, OR.
The Ideal weather and a packed house set the tone for our most exciting main event this season – The top guys were super fast and worked their way to the front early. Randy Houston, Eric Schmidt and Bobby Hirchsbock were on the fast track and racing hard! Unfortunately the race demons struck again as Houston exited the race with ignition troubles, allowing Eric Schmidt to jump out for a commanding lead. A late caution tightened the field back up for a battle to the end of the 75 lap main. Bobby Hirschbock, Chris Scribner, Jr Roddy and Hayden Pederson all had a great race going in the later half and had everyone on the edge of their seats. Eric Schmidt showed he still had plenty of muscle left in his Sierra Speed / RPM NORCAL Chevy to capture yet another checkered flag, as well as the $1500 winners check and holding on to the PCS points lead.
Special Thanks to Blair and all of the Shasta Speedway team for all their hard work in putting together another great show.
For our next event on 9/27/13 – we return to Redwood Acres raceway in Eureka
