Haulot Gets the Job Done

Cotati’s Jake Haulot led all 25-laps to win the winged 360 sprint car main event.  It was his fifth career feature event win.  Haulot, driving the Northbay Welding and Iron Mountain Sheet Metal No. 7h, was flawless all night.  Shadowing him most of the race was Billy Wallace.  Near the end of the race Wallace was passed by a charging Colby Wiesz.  On a lap 12 restart, mayhem ensued in turn one when Brent Bjork was tapped from behind and started to spin.  Collected in the wreck was Michael Wasina, Steel Powell, Josh Wiesz, and William Fielding.  Bjork was able to race his way back to a seventh-place finish.  Fielding and Powell finished 11th and 12th.  Kenny Wanderstadt started 13th and finish an impressive fourth.  Korey Lovell started 14th and finished 6th.

Burt Foland Jr. won the $100 Paul Olmsted Plastering fast time award with a blistering 12.662.  Steel Powell, Mike Monahan, and Billy Wallace each won their eight-lap heat race. A total of 19 cars competed for point show number three.

Ryan Winter was dominant in winning the 20-lap Dwarf Car feature.  Fred Dickey and Mike Grenert briefly led the race but by lap three Winter was up front and charging to the win.  While Winter was the class of the field, it was a pleasure to watch 14th place starting Brandon Shaw who charged through the field and finished fourth.  It was a great performance.  Grenert was able to keep Shawn Whitney behind him and finish second.  Whitney finished third.  Fifth place went to Dylan Shrum who raced well all night. Steve Walker, Mike Grenert and Winter each won their eight-lap heat race.

Jay Norton was solid all night and used his front row starting spot to his advantage as he led all 20 laps to win the Limited Late Model main event.  His teammate Dan Brown Jr. exited the track on lap two with a motor malfunction.  This moved Wayne Trimble into second.  Wayne would hold onto the spot but not without a fight.  Rod Oliver was all over Trimble for the last part of the race.  Ray Trimble was also in the mix, but he had a mechanical failure on lap 10.  Richard Vander Ploeg finished fourth.  Shannon Barton rounded out the top five.  Brown Jr. won the lone eight lap heat race.
