Joel Myers Jr Garners 5th at 6th Place Finishes in Stockton, CA
PETERSEN MEDIA: Continuing to stay busy as the 2021 season draws to a close, Joel Myers Jr spent his weekend in Stockton, CA where he would charge to a fifth place finish in 360ci action on Friday, before a sixth place finish in the KWS finale on Saturday night which secured him 10th in the final standings.
“It was a pretty good weekend for our team,” Joel Myers Jr said. “It was fun to get a night with the 360ci in and a night with the 410ci in and really log a ton of laps at a place we don’t get to run very often.”
In 360ci action on Friday night, the Sebastopol, CA driver would time the All About Fire Protection/Dirt Dudes/PitStopUSA backed No. 46jr machine in 12th fastest in qualifying time trials.
Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Myers would make a slight mistake which would relegate him back to fourth as he settled back into the racing groove. Working back into third, Myers’ finish would place him 10th on the starting grid for the 25-lap feature event.
On a slick and rough racing surface that would wreak havoc on some of the competitors, Myers was able to go above the rough stuff and work his way forward. Running with his right-rear up on the high-side of the speedway, Myers would work his way into the Top-5 in the race’s closing laps.
When the wild feature event fame to a close, Myers capped the night off with a charge from 10th to finish fifth.
Saturday night would see the team swap engines and bolt the 410ci powerplant into the frame rails as Myers Jr would go to work and battle with the King of the West Series during their final event of the 2021 season.
Timing in 10th fastest in qualifying time trials, Myers would line up on the front row of his heat race. In an entertaining battle with Sean Becker and Shane Golobic, the 15-year-old would get the best of the two veterans as he would pick up the win and earn a spot into the Sunnyvalley Bacon Dash.
Lining up fifth in the Dash, ‘Jr’ would finish fifth and take the green flag from the inside of the third row for the series’ final feature event of the season.
After the race got off to a slow start with some early stoppages, Myers would find himself back in the eighth position before things settled into a green flag run.
When he got into rhythm, Myers Jr was able to work his way back forward as he battled with Austin McCarl, and Ryan Bernal for position inside the Top-10. Getting up to sixth, Myers Jr would chase after Becker for a spot inside the Top-Five but couldn’t get back to him as he capped the night off with a sixth-place finish.
“Each night we get the 410ci out, we learn a little more and I feel like I get a little more comfortable,” Myers Jr added. “The last few races we have been pretty competitive and hopefully we can carry that into 2022.”
