PETERSEN MEDIA- Sitting idle last weekend while the Placerville Speedway was invaded by the King of the West Series, Greg DeCaires and Dale Miller Motorsports got right back to their winning ways on Saturday night as the team picked up their second win of the 2017 season.
“I have a great crew and team behind me, and I can’t say enough about them,” Greg DeCaires said. “I fell back early, but I found the top to my liking and we were smooth and were fortunate enough to get back to victory lane.”
Saturday night at Placerville Speedway, a total of 25 sprint cars checked in for ‘Big Trophy Night’, and it was DeCaires setting the standard in time trials aboard the Thompson’s Auto Center/A.R.T. Speed Equipment/King Racing Products machine on the slicked off surface after going out late in the time trial session.
Finding himself in the second row of his heat race, DeCaires would work his way way forward slowly as he picked off a couple positions in the opening laps. On the fourth circuit, the Elk Grove, CA driver was able to race his way into the lead and move on to pick up the win.
Lining up on the front row of the feature event alongside Mason Moore, DeCaires would fall back to second when the race came to life, and would eventually be back in the third spot when cautions slowed and stopped the race on the seventh lap. With the bottom now working for him initially, DeCaires would decided to make an adjustment when the race resumed.
On the restart, DeCaires would go to the top of the ¼ mile speedway to get around Jimmy Trulli to overtake the second spot on the ninth lap before another stoppage slowed the race on the 13th lap.
Back underway, DeCaires continued to rail the top as he was able to take the lead on the race’s 10th lap and never look back. While he rolled the top, Moore would continue to work the bottom, but he was no match for DeCaires up top.
Running the cushion well, DeCaires would cap off his clean sweep with his team’s second win of the 2017 season at Placerville Speedway.
“Once I got settled down and regained my composure we got rolling pretty good,” DeCaires added. “We love racing at Placerville and always have a fun time with it.”
