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.

2017 PACIFIC CHALLENGE SERIES BEGINS SATURDAY AT MADERA

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (March 14, 2017) – The Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com will make its fourth ever appearance the fast one-third mile asphalt oval in Madera, CA when the Super Late Model series begins its 2017 season at Madera Speedway on Saturday night.  Saturday’s 75 lap Madera event will begin a journey of ten races across five race tracks for California’s premier short track touring series.

With 2012 & 2016 champion Jeremy Doss not returning to defend his championship, 2017 appears to be one of the most wide-open and competitive fields in recent history.  A variety of veterans and rookies will take on the series this season.  A new points system with five bonus points awarded for each start and no throwaways will reward the full-time competitors in the tour as they travel across the state.

Mike Beeler of Modesto has been a mainstay of the series with perfect attendance the last three years to win the championship in 2014 before a pair of runner-up championship finishes.  He will aim to turn that trend around starting this weekend.  Perhaps the most highly anticipated driver on the tour will be Jason Romero of Cameron Park.  Romero swept all four All American Speedway PCS races in 2016 after winning the track’s 2009 Late Model championship.  He earned a new track record in his first ever Madera start last August with a 14.126 second lap but a spin early in the feature cost him a shot at victory.

2016 PCS Rookie of the Year Matt Wendt returns to the series for his sophomore campaign, as does 2015 PCS Rookie of the Year Cole Moore and 2014 PCS Rookie of the Year JR Courage.  All three are searching for their first career series victories.  All three have also led several laps in their careers while searching for the elusive victory.  Cole’s father John Moore won the 2015 PCS championship and will hope to turn around his fortunes after a frustrating 2016 campaign where he ended the year ninth in the standings.

Valley Springs’ Tracy Bolin set the track record at Madera in last March’s race, before the mark was lowered in August by Romero.  Bolin appeared snake bitten with a litany of bad luck but broke through for his first series victory last June at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, CA.

A new two-car family effort will debut on Saturday night with series veteran Travis Milburn of Eagle, ID joining his cousin Jack Wood in cars #18 and #19.  Milburn won the September Tri-Holiday #3 at Stockton last year.  Jack is a Legends graduate whose father John has been involved in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West as both an owner and a driver for several years.

Carlos Vieira will make his first career series start on Saturday night.  He is a veteran of several series in California including the SRL, NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West, and local NASCAR Whelen All-American Series races.  The popular driver ran sixth with the SRL series last July at Madera.

Another new face for 2017 will be Watsonville’s Alexander Mead.  Mead began his career on dirt in Micro Sprints and IMCA Sport Mods before joining Madera Speedway’s Late Model ranks in 2015.  He finished fifth in the Madera Late Model points last year.

Other drivers attempting to compete on Saturday include Hayward’s Danny Malfatti, Elk Grove’s Mike Hite, Fresno’s Justin Westmoreland, and Fortuna’s Leonard Ward.

This weekend’s racing includes season openers for the Western Winged Super Sprints, Legends of the Pacific, the reboot of the Super Hobby Stock Series for 50 laps, USAC HPD Midgets, and F4s.  Cody Gerhardt will be looking to defend his series championship in the Winged Sprints this weekend!

An open practice kicks off the weekend on Friday before another full day of action on Saturday.  Pit gates open at noon with practice from 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.  Qualifying will follow with heats and dashes at 5:15 p.m.  Opening ceremonies and the main events begin at 6:00 p.m.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and military, $10 for youth ages 6-12, and kids five and under are free!  Madera Speedway is located on the Madera Fairgrounds on Cleveland Ave and 99.  For more information, visit www.RaceMadera.com

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.

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).

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.
