Justin Sanders Wins 5th of Year at Ocean Speedway


(PETERSEN MEDIA- Watsonville, CA)- When Friday nights 6 minute and 36 second long feature event came to a close, it was a familiar face in victory lane as Justin Sanders was victorious at Ocean Speedway for the fifth time this season.

Jerry Bonnema and Matthew Moles would lead the field to green for the 30-lap affair. On an extremely fast track in the early part of the night, fourth starting Brad Furr would zip around the duo and take the early lead.

With most of the field using the bottom groove, Furr seemed to take a liking to the middle as he paced the field for the first three laps until Moles was able to sneak by him on the exit of turn two and officially lead lap four.

Out front, Moles looked very strong aboard the Southern Pacific Farms No. 10 machine. Getting through traffic efficiently, Moles was able to leave Furr in his wake as he opened up a sizeable lead.

While Moles continued to show the way around the speedway, one of the best battles on the track was for the second spot as Justin Sanders and Brad Furr fought for the position in traffic.

Relentless in his pursuit, Sanders would overtake the second spot on lap 18, as Cory Eliason worked his way into the Top-Five from the ninth starting spot.

On the 19th lap, Moles would drift up high on the exit of turn four as he put another car a lap down, but he would make contact with the wall with his right rear and would actually ride the wall past the flag stand as Sanders was able to get under him and become the leader on lap 20.

As things remained status quo in front of the field with Sanders leading the way over Moles, Furr, Ensign, and Eliason, Tommy Tarlton was doing some moving from his 16th starting position as he raced up into the eighth spot.

Sanders wouldn’t be challenged in the final 10-laps as he raced his way to his fifth win of the season at the track beating Moles, Furr, Ensign, and Eliason back to the line.

Jerry Bonnema would finish sith, Kyle Offill seventh, Tarlton would hang on to finish eighth, as Brent Kaeding and Dustin Golobic rounded out the Top-10.

Cory Eliason made the most of a surprised visit to the Speedway on Friday night as he kicked the night out with the fasatest lap of the night during qualifying time trials.

Three heat races were ran with wins going to  Bonnema, Furr, and Moles, as Bonnema was also victorious during the Dash.
