Jace Vander Weerd 9th at Faria Memorial


PETERSEN MEDIA- Jace Vander Weerd and his Vander Weerd Racing team were in action on Saturday night at the Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA for the Faria Memorial, and Vander Weerd was able to finish in the ninth spot, on an unusually rough and hooked up racing surface.

“I just could not seem to get comfortable all night,” Vander Weerd said. “The track did not allow for much passing, so we finished pretty much where we started.”

With 18 cars checked into the pit area, Vander Weerd got his night started off by timing the Vander Weerd Construction/Stonegate Development/Battery Worx No. 88 machine in 11th fastest.

Finding himself in the second row of his heat race, Vander Weerd would battle with Landon Hurst for the fourth spot, before finishing fifth, putting him in the fifth row for the 30-lap feature event.

Following some track prep, the Thunderbowl Raceway had added moisture, making passing in the feature event very tough. From the fifth row, Vander Weerd would get settled into 10th as he searched for away around the speedway to avoid some rough patches that plagued the surface.

In the closing laps, Vander Weerd would take over the ninth spot, as he came to the finish line, giving him his 10th Top-10 finish of the 2015 season.

“It was a tough night, but it is nice to escape with a Top-10,” Jace Vander Weerd added. “We head to Perris Auto Speedway this weekend, and I am really looking forward to it, as I have been running much better there than I have in years past.”

Jace and his Vander Weerd Racing team would like to thank Vander Weerd Construction, Stonegate Development, Battery Worx, Mid-Valley Pipe, Basic Industries, Steve Watt Enterprises, FK Rod Ends, PXP Raceway and K&N for their support in 2015.

2015 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-14, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-10.

ON TAP: Jace and his will travel to the Perris Auto Speedway on Saturday night for the Salute To Indy 40-lap event.
