PETERSEN MEDIA: With the Ocean Speedway and Marysville Raceway both off for the weekend, Justin Sanders loaded his JSR No. 17 machine up and headed to the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night where he finished in the sixth spot.
“We drew the eight pill in the feature event, and after the rain came through it became tricky to pass and we ended up finishing in the sixth spot,” Justin Sanders said.
18 cars checked into the pit area on Saturday night and the Watsonville, CA product would time his Lancaster Locksmith backed No. 17 machine in third quickest in time trials.
From the second row of his heat race, Sanders would finish in the third spot and earn a spot in the feature event redraw where the eight pill would put him in the fourth row for the 25-lap feature event.
With rains coming in before the feature event, track prep crews would get the track in racing condition but the added moisture would make passing tough on this night.
As numerous cautions plagued the first 10-laps of the feature event, Sanders was able to get into the sixth spot as he chased after Mike Benson and Jimmy Trulli who raced in front of him.
Able to get up to battle for a position in the Top-Five, Sanders was unable to find away to gain the spot as he would close his night out with a sixth place finish.
“It was tough to pass,’ Sanders said. “I had a couple of chances to try and make something happen but there was no point to force it and tear equipment up. I want to thank my guys for their hard work. With a couple of races on tap this weekend, I am hopeful we can get back into victory lane.”
ON TAP: Sanders will be at the Ocean Speedway on Friday night as well as the Marysville Raceway on Saturday night.
