PETERSEN MEDIA: Climbing back aboard his potent midget on Saturday night in Stockton, CA, Austin Liggett put together another good run as he came home with a second place finish.
“It was a pretty uneventful night,” Austin Liggett said. “It was a light car count, so we ran a two-heat format and the feature, and we really didn’t have anything for Shane Golobic. We had a good car, they were just on their game and we ended up second.”
Lining up on the front row of his first heat race alongside Shane Golobic, Liggett and Golobic would run side by side in the opening laps before Liggett settled into second on the slick surface, where he would go on to finish.
Though the car count was low, it still featured a handful of Saturday night Chili Bowl starters, and in the second heat Liggett would line up fourth and would end up finishing fourth as he chased Shane Golobic, Michael Faccinto, and Chase Johnson across the finish line.
Moving into the feature event, the Tracy, CA driver would take the green flag from the third starting position. Jumping up into second after a battle with Chase Johnson on the opening lap, Liggett would set his sights on race leader, Shane Golobic.
Through the course of the race, a couple of restarts would bunch the field up, by Golobic was on his game and nailed his restarts as Liggett held his own to finish second.
“Big thanks to Scott, and my parents, and the crew for all of their hard work,” Liggett said. “We have a really good car, just always room for improvement and we will keep working at it.”
Austin Liggett Racing would like to thank Excel Environmental Services, Liggett Trucking, Tool Technology, Hurst Fabrications, Maxwell Industries, Shine Photography, and Morris Motorsports for their support.
