Brake Issue Sidelines DJ Netto at Keller Auto Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA: Racing at his home track on Saturday night in Hanford, CA, DJ Netto would see a good run come to an early end as a brake issue was cited as the culprit.

“We had a really good car and were battling inside the Top-Five, but a brake issue forced me back to the trailer halfway through the feature event,” DJ Netto said.

Racing at Keller Auto Speedway on Saturday night, Netto would get the night started with the third fastest lap of the night in time trials with 23 cars checked into the pit area.

Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the local Hanford, CA product would turn in some strong laps as he was able to work his way to the front and pick up the heat race win and move into the Dash.

Finishing sixth in the Dash, Netto would take the green flag from the third row for the 30-lap feature event with big money on the line. On the slick Keller Auto Speedway surface, Netto would get off to a nice start as he ran in the Top-Five.

Moving into the fourth spot, Netto would hook up into some good battles with Cory Eliason and Gio Scelzi as the worked around the tricky track that held moisture well and built a nice cushion.

Continuing to click off laps, Netto would run into issues on the 15th lap as an issue with his brakes force him back to the trailer after a near wreck getting into turns one and two.

“Something failed in the left front, and it almost caused us to get upside down in turns one and two,” Netto said. “I ended up taking it back to the trailer and calling it a night which was kind of disappointing with how good I felt we were.”
