PETERSEN MEDIA- Greg DeCaires and his Dale Miller Motorsports team are simply the team to beat at the Placerville Speedway. In eight races at the track so far in 2015, DeCaires has picked up four feature event wins, and eight podium finishes as the team again found victory lane on Saturday night.
“It was a great track on Saturday night, that was extremely fast high and low, and it provided for some great racing,” Greg DeCaires said in victory lane.
Timing his Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic/Foothill 7 TV/RedHawk Casino No. 4SA machine in second fastest during qualifications, DeCaires would then work his way from his fourth starting position in his heat race to finish in the third position.
Pulling a two in the redraw, DeCaires would line his Halk Equipment Rentals/NAAKE Suspension/A.R.T. Speed Equipment backed entry up on the front row for the 25-lap feature event.
With Andy Gregg getting the jump, DeCaires would stalk his fellow competitor for the top spot after a series of yellow flag’s slowed the early pace of the race. When the action got into a long green flag run, the leaders found themselves in thick lapped traffic, and dueled back and forth to the crowd’s delight.
Amidst heavy traffic, DeCaires would hound Gregg even more as the white flag waived and would duck under him in turns one and two to grab the lead as the crowd went crazy. As Gregg slid up in front of Gregg to reclaim the lead getting into turn three, DeCaires would turn his machine under Gregg’s to counter the move and would beat him to the checkered flag by inches to claim his fourth feature event win of the season.
“It took a while to catch him, but man that was a fun race,” DeCaires added. “Dale Miller and Bill McClaren are doing a great job night in and night out, and I am just the lucky one who gets to drive this car.”
Greg DeCaires and the Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic, Foothill 7 TV, RedHawk Casino, Halk Equipment Rentals, NAAKE Suspension, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Frank’s Auto Body Shop, Hangtown Sheet Metal and Wesmar Racing Engines for their support.
2015 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 8, Wins- 4, Top-5’s-8, Top-10’s-8
ON TAP: DeCaires and the Miller Motorsports team will take this weekend off before returning to action at the Placerville Speedway on June 27th.
