PETERSEN MEDIA: After enduring a couple of rough weeks, DJ Netto put together a strong night on Saturday at the Ocean Speedway as he picked up a second place finish.
“It was great to rebound with a second place finish, after the way the last few weekends have gone,” Netto said. “Double file restarts hurt us a little bit, and I was hoping a couple of the yellow’s wouldn’t have flown, but it is part of it.”
With 29 cars on hand for the final Johnny Key Classic Qualifier race, Netto timed is Netto Ag/Penny Newman Grain/Bogies Auto Parts No. 88n entry in 10th fastest, before taking advantage of a front row heat starting spot, and earning the win.
Pulling the five pill in the redraw, Netto went to the top of the speedway when the race went green, and quickly picked up a couple of positions, as he got into the third spot before a caution flew.
The ensuing restart saw Netto slip back to the fourth spot, but the Hanford, CA driver continued to search around the speedway, as he was able to get back around Tiner, and then around Shane Golobic to take over the second spot.
Chasing down race leader, Tommy Tarlton, Netto’s challenges were negated by a few untimely caution flags.
“Every time we seemed to gain ground on him, the yellow would fly, and the bottom was not where you wanted to be for a restart,” he added.
In the closing laps, Netto and Justin Sanders hooked up in a battle for the second spot, and though Justin Sanders threw a slider on Netto, but Netto was able to counter the challenge, and race on to finish in the second spot.
“I have to thank my Family, Cori, and everyone that helps this team,” Netto said. “It has been a rough stretch, and to get a podium feels great.”
DJ and his Netto Racing team would like to thank Netto Agriculture, Penny Newman Grain, Bogies Auto Parts, and Vande Pol Enterprises for their support in 2014.
ON TAP: Netto will be back in action on Saturday night at the Ocean Speedway for the 54th Running of the Johnny Key Classic.
