Greg DeCaires Third During Big Trophy Night


PETERSEN MEDIA- Back in action at the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Greg DeCaires would overcome a tough qualifying effort and end up finishing in the third spot during the Big Trophy Night feature event.

“We had some things go our way in the heat race, and we snuck into the redraw, and ended up with a really good finish,” Greg DeCaires said.

Kicking his night off by timing the Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic/Foothill 7 TV/RedHawk Casino No. 4SA machine in 11th fastest in qualifying time trials.

From the third row of his heat race, the 2014 Placerville Speedway track champion, would forge his way ahead as he was able to record a second place finish and earn a spot in the all-important nightly redraw.

Pulling the five-pill, DeCaires would find himself battling with Sean Becker during the early goings of the 25-lap A-Main event. As both drivers came from the third row, they would battle back and forth for the second spot, with Becker finally getting the better of DeCaires.

Running in the third spot as the laps clicked down, DeCaires would close in on the lead duo as they began battling for the top spot, but he would be unable to do anything with Logan Seavey in the closing laps, as he ended his night on the podium.

“It was a hard fought race, and a very good result for us,” DeCaires said. “We have some great people behind us, and we love when we are able to race well for them.”

Greg DeCaires and the Dale Miller Motorsports team would like to thank Dale Miller Plumbing and Septic, Foothill 7 TV, RedHawk Casino, Halk Equipment Rentals, NAAKE Suspension, A.R.T. Speed Equipment, Frank’s Auto Body Shop, Hangtown Sheet Metal and Wesmar Racing Engines for their support.
