PETERSEN MEDIA- Kingsburg, CA driver, Cory Eliason, had a strong weekend aboard the M&S Racing No. 27 machine, as he worked up to a fifth place finish from ninth on Friday night at the Placerville Speedway before charging from 22nd to sixth on Saturday night at the Petaluma Speedway with Civil War Series.
“It was a really good weekend for our team,” Eliason said. “We went forward Friday and Saturday so you really can’t complain about a weekend where you race well.”
Saturday night at the Petaluma Speedway, Eliason’s night got off to a slower than usual start as he timed the Angius & Terry/FVP/M&S Racing Engines No. 27 in 28th fastest.
A seventh place effort in his heat, forced him to go through the B Main event, and Eliason made a late race pass to net himself the final transfer position into the 30-lap feature event.
As the race got underway, Eliason slowly worked his way through the field, as he found himself up to 15th at the halfway point.
With the caution waiving on the 25th lap, Eliason sat in the 10th spot, and taking advantage of a final double-file restart, he was able to surge his way forward to score a sixth place finish.
“It took us a while to get going in the feature event, but we were pretty good the last half of the race,” he said. “Usually double file restarts don’t work out for me, but the last two really went my way, and helped us get into sixth.”
Friday night saw Eliason and his M&S Racing team spend the Fourth of July in action at the Placerville Speedway.
Starting his night off as the quick time qualifier, Eliason was involved in a heat race tangle, forcing him to run the B Main, which a second place effort put him in the show.
Starting ninth on the extremely slick surface, Eliason slowly worked his way forward, as passing was challenging on this night.
Getting up into the fifth spot late in the race, Eliason flanked Forsberg for the fourth spot, but was unable to get the spot, as he ended his night with a fifth place finish.
“The only complaint from Placerville was the luck we had in our heat race,” he added. “We were fast all night, but getting knocked out of the transfer in the heat hurt us because he got knocked out of the redraw, but we were able to make the show, and run pretty well on the extremely slick surface.”
M&S Racing would like to thank Angius & Terry, FVP, M&S Racing Engines, Shell Shock Designs, Reitz Almond Harvesting, Empireworks Reconstruction and Painting, and Eagle Motorsports for their continued support.
2014 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-17, Wins-0, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-9.
