Early Contact Knocks Peterson Out of Civil War Series Feature Event


PETERSEN MEDIA- Returning to action on Saturday night at the Placerville Speedway, Matt Peterson would see his night come to an early end with the Civil War Series as contact on the race’s second lap saw his night come to an end.

“I hate to see my family’s hard earned money, and time, go down the tube like that for no real reason,” Matt Peterson said. “It is racing and it happens, but you really hate to see it happen to you.”

Checking in at the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Peterson would time in 17th fastest in time trials, but a little early luck would see him line up on the pole of his heat race, and in a good spot to make a bid at the night’s dash.

Lining his Miller Lite/V&H Fresh/Inventory Sales Company backed No. p37 up on the front row of his heat, the Wilton, CA driver would slip back to finish in the third spot, but would still move into the 30-lap A Main event.

Lining up in the 14th spot in the feature event, contact with another car getting into turn one would see Peterson’s car stopped with apparent front end issues. The damage was too significant for the team to fix, and Peterson’s night would come to an end.

“I really want to thank my dad, Kent Miller, Tommy Mason, my mom and all of my sponsors for all of their help,” Peterson added. “Big congrats to my Uncle Greg on the Civil War podium, and I am looking forward to Saturday’s show in Petaluma, CA.”

Matt and his team would like to thank, Miller Lite, V&H Fresh, Inventory Sales Company, Bear Trucking, Transportation Services, Future Energy Savers, Hoskins Mechanical Resources, Vahlco Wheels, JhdDesings, Shell Shock, and MTFX Graphics for their support in 2016.
