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.
