PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night in Placerville, CA, Greg DeCaires would take another step towards his fifth career Placerville Speedway track championship as he recorded a ninth place finish aboard the Dale Miller Motorsports No. 4SA.
A total of 27 sprint cars would check into the ¼ mile bullring on Saturday night, and DeCaires would get his night started off by timing the Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic/Thompson’s Auto Center/RedHawk Casino No. 4SA entry in seventh fastest during qualifying time trials.
Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the Elk Grove, CA native would work his way forward as he charged after the top spot in hopes of making the redraw. Getting to second, DeCaires would move into the feature event, but he would find himself in the 10th starting spot.
With the majority of the field using the bottom groove of the speedway, passing would be at a premium on this night. Racing inside the Top-10 from flag to flag, DeCaires would seemingly pick up a spot and lose a spot as drivers began moving around looking for a different lap as the laps clicked down.
Fighting with young guns Tanner Carrick, Kalib Henry, and Chase Majdic for much of the race, the crafty veteran driver would take the checkered flag with a ninth place finish.
Greg DeCaires and the Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic, Thompson’s Auto Center, RedHawk Casino, NAAKE Suspension, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, King Racing Products, Smith Titanium, Amerikote, Motion Media Wraps, Hangtown Sheet Metal & Fabrication, Vortex Wings, Joe Hunt Magnetos, Frank’s Auto Body Shop, El Dorado Hills Landscape, Anrak Corporation, and Wesmar Racing Engines for their support.
