Macedo Wins Race; Ing Crowned Sprint Car Champion
Marysville, CA (Aug 31, 2019) – An exciting and entertaining night of racing was capped off with crowing a new king at Marysville Raceway. Chico’s Michael Ing didn’t have the Hollywood ending he probably envisioned, mechanical problem sidelined him on lap 10 of the feature event, but he had already done enough to secure the 2019 winged 360 sprint car track championship. While it was Ing’s night, the race was owned by Cole Macedo. Starting deep in the field, Macedo passed Bradley Terrell on lap 19 and went on to win the 25-lap main event. Macedo continues to show the Nor Cal sprint car world that he is the real deal. Early leader Sean Becker was involved in a roll over on lap 16 that sidelined his chance for the win. Terrell finished second. Jake Haulot, who is always a top runner, finished third. Colby Wiesz and Korey Lovell rounded out the top five. A total of 21 sprint car attended the final point show. Steel Powell started the night with fast time. His lap was a 12.870.
Todd Cooper started third but by lap three, he was the leader of the 20-lap IMCA Pepsi Sport Mod feature. Cooper went on to lead the next 17 laps to secure the popular win. Rusty McMillen passed Scott Savell on lap 16 to move into the second spot. Savell was then passed by Jeff Tuttle for the third-place finish. Jim Waller moved up a few spots to finish fifth. Tuttle beat Cooper by less than a half-second to win the lone heat race. Cooper won for the fifth time this season. One more point race remains for this division.
The Dwarf Car main was excellent. Ryan Winter started fourth and by lap four he was the leader. Even though he went on to lead the next 15-laps, the racing behind him was solid when you consider Shawn Whitney started tenth and finished second. Twelfth place starting Ben Wiesz was even more impressive. At one point he was second only to get passed by Whitney late in the race. Wiesz finished third. Eighth place starting Mike Reeder finished fourth. Dan Geil had an eventful night. Started seventh, but a lap one altercation sent him to the rear. He worked his way back into a fifth-place finish. Mike Grenert won the opening heat race. Winter beat Josh Wiesz by two-seconds to win heat two.
Ron Ruiz won the Hardtop Vintage main event.
