PETERSEN MEDIA: Making a rare Friday night start at the Ocean Speedway, DJ Netto over came a mid-race mishap and charged from the tail end of the field to finish in the fifth spot.
“We had a really good car all night, and I just got into the cushion too hard and spun out,” Netto said. “We went to the back and I was able to let it all hang out and work back to finish in the fifth spot.”
Timing his Netto Ag/Penny Newman Grain/Kaeding Performance No. 88n machine in seventh fastest in qualifying time trials, the Hanford, CA driver would proceed to pick up the win in his heat race.
Moving into the nightly Dash, Netto’s sixth place finish would line him up in the third row for the 30-lap feature event. Following track work prior to the ‘A’ Main, an extremely racy surface would greet the field.
When the race went green, Netto would work his way up to third spot as he made the cushion work to his advantage. Continuing to pound the cushion around the Ocean Speedway ¼ mile, Netto would get into it a little too hard on the 15th lap and bring his machine to a stop.
Going to the tail end of the field, Netto would excite the crowd from the tail end of the field as he sliced and diced his way through traffic. At times passing multiple cars a lap, the Freshman at Fresno State University would fight his way back to finish in the fifth spot.
“I made a mistake at the halfway point and probably took us out of contention on a possible win,” Netto added. “These guys continue to work hard and give me a fast racecar, and I appreciate everything they do. We have a busy weekend ahead and hopefully we can show the same speed we did on Friday.”
DJ and his Netto Racing team would like to thank Netto Agriculture, Penny Newman Grain, Kaeding Performance, Shell Rotella T6, and Van De Pol Enterprises for their support in 2016.
ON TAP: Netto will be in action this Saturday night at the Marysville Raceway and on Sunday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA for a pair of Civil War Series events.
