Ing is a Five-Time Winner in 2019
Marysville, CA (June 30, 2019) – Chico’s Michael Ing continues to dominate the winged 360 sprint car division at Marysville Raceway. Ing led all 25-laps to win his fifth feature event of the year. Chasing Ing for the first seven laps was Brad Dillard. Colby Wiesz then jumped up to the second spot and shadowed Ing for the next 12 laps. J.J. Hickle started eighth but by lap 20 he moved around Wiesz for the second spot. Hickle gave it all he could but was never able to make the pass for the lead. Ing held true to his line and once again crossed the finish line in first. Wiesz and Ing each won their heat races. Alec Justeson captured the fastest lap of the night by turning a 13.111. A nice turnout of 16 sprint car entered the Saturday night show.
R.C. Smith drove into the lead on lap three of the Crate Sprint 20-lap main event. Smith then proceeded to distance himself from second place Nick Larson. Unfortunately for Smith, he spun between turn one and two while negotiating slower traffic. This gave the lead to Larson and he took advantage of the gift. Larson went on to lead the final five laps with ease and pick up his second win of the season. Jeff Macedo was second. Brett Youngman was third. Smith rebounded to finish fourth. Kiely Ricardo was fifth. Smith won the lone eight lap heat race.
The Hobby Stock main event was another barn burner. The excitement this division produces is second to none. Devin Ryan led the first 12 laps until contact from behind from Gus Welty sent him spinning out. Welty was sent to the infield with front end damage. This moved Mike Stoeckle into the top spot. Stoeckle led the final seven laps with ease. Eric Phillips made the biggest moves of the night as he started 11th and finished second. Jose Hernandez finished third. Jesse Van Roekel had an up and down race. At one point he was third, then fell back to twelfth before racing back to a fourth-place finish. Ryan worked his way back to a fifth-place finish. Brian Compton won the first heat. David Caluya picked up the win in heat two.
Once again, the Dwarf Cars put on an outstanding show. 24 drivers showed up and thrilled the grandstand crowd. Shawn Jones started fifth but by lap four he was in the lead. Jones would go on to show us why he is one of the best to ever run a Dwarf Car and win the main event. Mike Reeder led the first few laps and then drifted back as far as sixth on lap 16. But give him credit, the final four laps he moved up to finish in second. Thomas Leiby started fourth, but he too fell back at the start. Leiby then charged from ninth back to a third-place finish. Mike Grenert stayed steady all race and finished fourth. Fifth went to 10th place starting Justin Winter. Ryan Winter won the first heat race. Grenert won heat two. Shawn Whitney grabbed the third heat race win.
