PETERSEN MEDIA: Making the trip to the Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA on Friday night, Cory Eliason made a late race move to secure his third win overall in 2016 and his second aboard the Van Dyke Motorsports No. 5h.
“We are really, really strong right now, and I owe it all to Harley Van Dyke and Fez for their hard work,” Cory Eliason said.
Returning to the Keller Auto Speedway for the first time since a charge from last to win back in May, Eliason showed he still had plenty of speed as he earned quick time honors during the qualifying session on Friday night.
Picking up a third place finish in his heat, Eliason would line up in the fifth spot of the Dash before a third place finish lined him up in the second row of the 30-lap feature event.
On the slick Keller Auto Speedway surface, Eliason would get into the second spot aboard his Lucas Oil/Hansen Machine/NAAKE Suspension backed no. 5h as he chased after DJ Netto.
Trying all he could to get by Netto, Eliason would have no success until the yellow flag flew on lap 19. The ensuing restart saw Eliason and Netto race wheel-to-wheel with Eliason coming out on top and taking over command of the race.
Once in front, the Kingsburg, CA driver set sail and went on to pick up his second consecutive win at the track he call home.
“It is always great to win, and to win so close to home is also really cool,” Eliason added. “This team is really fun to work with, and hopefully we can continue to have success with some big races on our schedule coming up pretty soon.”
The Van Dyke Motorsports team would like to thank Lucas Oil, Hansen Machine, NAAKE Suspension, Maxim Chassis, and Moyle Racing Engines for their support during the year.
