PETERSEN MEDIA: DJ Netto put together another good run at the Silver Dollar Speedway on Sunday night with the Civil War Series as he tallied a fourth place finish in front of a capacity crowd during the annual Silver Dollar Fair Race.
“We were really good early in the night setting quick time and winning our heat race, and then we tried something in the Dash that we probably should have tried in the feature and it we would have been better. We were a Top-Five car and that’s where we finished.”
With 31 cars on hand Sunday night in Chico, CA, Netto would set the bar during qualifying time trials as he earned quick time honors. In an exciting heat race, Netto would take advantage of traffic and pick up the win and move into the Dash.
Trying something in the nightly Dash, Netto would struggle a little as he finished in the sixth spot, which lined him up in the third row of the 30-lap feature event. As cautions plagued the early stages of the race, Netto would fall back as far as the eighth spot.
Getting into an extended green flag run, the Hanford, CA driver would get the Tri C Manufacturing/Netto Ag/Penny Newman Grain going forward as he would pick up spots quickly as he closed his night out with a fourth place finish.
Netto and the Tri-C Motorsports were also in action on Saturday night as they battled the SCCT in Stockton, CA.
Timing his machine in second fastest in his qualifying group, Netto would advance from his third starting spot to finish in the second position and move directly into the 35-lap SCCT feature event.
Lining up in the second row after a fourth place finish in the Dash, Netto would get out to a nice start as he would jump into the second spot as the race came to life. Following an early caution, Netto would see Justin Sanders sneak by and he would fall back to third.
Searching around the slick Stockton dirt track, a restart on lap 14 would see Netto lose two spots as he fell back to fifth, before getting a position back on lap 15 to reclaim the fourth spot.
Moving into the third spot on the 17th lap, Netto would find himself behind Shane Golobic and Cory Eliason as the race continued to be plagued by cautions.
Back underway, Netto would find some speed on the big 4/10 mile speedway, and on the 19th lap it would get him into a little trouble. With a run on second running Eliason heading down the back stretch, Netto would try to sneak under for the second spot but the two would make contact and it would send both cars spinning and Netto’s night would come to an end.
“Everyone obviously has their opinion on the incident, and I really feel bad that two really good racecars got tore up that had a shot to win,” Netto said. “I had a huge head of steam going into three and dove low thinking he was going to slide up to the top and we hit. It wasn’t intentional, and again I feel bad for their team, and my team as well.”
2017 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-25, Wins-1, Top 5’s-7, Top 10’s-11
ON TAP: DJ Netto and the Tri-C Motorsports team will reunite with the King of the West Series on Saturday night as the series makes its first visit to Antioch Speedway since the 2013 season.
