Dawson Hammes 5th at Marysville Raceway During 4th of July Celebration



PETERSEN MEDIA: Returning to racing action on Wednesday night during Marysville Raceway Fireworks show, Dawson Hammes had another strong showing at his home track as he recorded a fifth-place finish.


“It was good to get back racing, and the 4th of July celebrations at the track are always fun,” Dawson Hammes said. “We had a really good night, and it was nice to pick up a Top-5.”


With high heat slimming down Wednesday’s car count, Hammes got the night kicked off by timing the Movement Brewing/STS Farming/All About Fire Protection backed No. 55D entry in sixth quickest in time trials.


Lining up on the front row of his heat race alongside younger brother, Carson, Hammes settled into second as he chased after a familiar foe. Running second to his younger brother, Hammes missed out on the redraw, but still took the green flag from the seventh position.


When the race came to life, Hammes had a couple of close calls in the early goings but was able to keep his nose clean and stay on track as he ran in sixth.


Moving into fifth on the third lap, Hammes locked horns on a hard fought battle for fourth and swapped the position numerous time over the course of the opening half of the feature event.


Maintaining position on the Top-5 as the laps wound down, Hammes held on to fifth when the checkered flag flew over the field.


“After a few weeks off, it was great to get back going,” Hammes noted. “Unfortunately the fire situation cancelled our race at Chico on the 4th, and Saturday’s heat at Marysville caused that race to cancel, so we will get ready to go for our next race in a couple of weeks. Thanks to Samuel, Jeremiah, Josh Wiesz, and my family for all of their help.”


Hammes Motorsports would like to thank Movement Brewing, STS Farming, All About Fire Protection, Summit Partners Burbank Agency, Escalera Inc, Harper Inc., and Ace Attorney Services for their continued support.


BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 9, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 4, Top 10’s: 7


ON TAP: As of now, Hammes’ next scheduled race is July 27th at Marysville Raceway.
