DeCaires Picks Up Two Top-10’s at Placerville Speedway Over 4th of July Weekend


PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking advantage of two race nights last weekend at Placerville Speedway thanks to the 4th of July holiday, Greg DeCaires and the Dale Miller Motorsports team would put together to strong showings that saw the team pick up two Top-10 finishes.

Saturday night, the team checked in at the bullring fresh off of an impressive run at Calistoga Speedway. Timing the Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic/Thompson’s Auto Center/RedHawk Casino No. 4SA machine in eighth fastest in qualifying time trials, the Elk Grove, CA driver would advance from third to finish second in his heat race.

Lining up in the 11th starting position for the 25-lap feature event, DeCaires would get off to a nice start as he carved his way forward and soon found himself in the Top-Five. Running in the fifth spot during a late restart, cars would tangle up front and DeCaires would have nowhere to go and get involved in the fray.

Making a quick trip to the work area, DeCaires would come back to earn valuable Championship points as he would still fight his way back to finish in the ninth position.

Coming oback on July 4th for another point race on the famous red dirt, DeCaires would open the night up by timing in sixth quickest in time trials amongst an extremely talented field of cars.

Picking up the heat race win from his second row starting spot, DeCaires would earn a position in the all important top-eight redraw to determine his feature event starting position.

Pulling the six, DeCaires would take the green flag from the third row on a very slick, by racy, Placerville Speedway racing surface. The NAAKE Suspension/A.R.T. Speed Equipment/King Racing Products machine was very good early as DeCaires was able to battle up front in the opening laps.

Getting as high as the fourth spot during the special feature event, DeCaires would fall back as far as the eighth spot as action was taking place all over the speedway.

When the dust settled on the 25-lap affair, DeCaires came across the finish line in the sixth spot.

Greg DeCaires and the Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic, Thompson’s Auto Center, RedHawk Casino, NAAKE Suspension, A.R.T.
