Huge Field of Dwarf Cars for Night One
Marysville, CA (Sept 20, 2019) – A large field of 84 Dwarf cars attended night one of the 24th Annual Dwarf Car Nationals at Marysville Raceway. The event is under the Western States Dwarf Car Association and always produces some great racing. In fact, the race is more of an event as most of the Marysville Raceway pit area is cluttered with Motorhomes and fifth wheel trailers. Post-race activities are just as fun as the on-track racing.
Shawn Jones took the lead on lap eight and went on to win the Pro Divisions main event. Joe Frock led the first seven laps. Frock ended up third. Mark Hanson moved into the second spot on lap eight and went on to finish in this spot. Shawn Whitney moved into fourth on lap 18 when Ryan Winter’s car came to a stop with mechanical problems. Thomas Leiby rounded out the top five. The next five finishers were locked into Saturday nights feature and included in order, Ryan Plexico, Jessica Swanson, Danny Wagner, Ben Haney and Gene Pires.
Ryan Winter won the 15-lap B main. Justin Winter, John Levitt and Ben Haney were the other three transferring cars. Scooter Gomez, Rory Mortensen, Joe Frock and Mark Hanson each won their eight-lap heat race.
Mark Biscardi led the first four laps until he spun entering turn one. This gave the lead to Kevin Miraglio who went on to win the 20-lap Veteran feature. Mike Reeder started eighth and charged to a second-place finish. Biscardi raced all the way to back to finish third. Dan Geil came home fourth. Mike Corsaro rounded out the top five. The next five finishers are locked into the fast dash on Saturday and include sixth place driver Eric Weisler, Brian Quilty, Wade Ehrlich, Scott Dahlgren and Glenn Sciarani. Biscardi won the first eight lap heat. Miraglio won the second heat. Buddy Olschowka got the win in heat three.
Unfortunately, the Sportsman division main event was cut to sixteen laps after surpassing the 40-minute mark during the 20-lap feature. The last caution on lap 16 involved many of the top drivers. In the end Sean Catucci won the race. The most impressive drive of the night out of any division had to be Giovanni Bortoli who started 25th and finished second. Jimmy Damron was third. Wayne Ireton came a long way to finish fourth. Travis Day ran solid all night to finish fifth. Keith Costas, Kenny Cucuk, Tim Steger, Michael Williams and Casey Warren were credited with sixth through tenth. Williams, Catucci and Damron all won their heat race.
Racing continues Saturday night. Front gate opens at 5 PM. Cars on track at 6 PM. For general info please visit our website.
