PETERSEN MEDIA: The 2017 Summer Sizzler at Delta Speedway lived up to it’s name on Friday and Saturday as scorching temperatures greeted the field on both nights of racing. Despite the blazing hot heat, Garth Kasiner could not be slowed as he swept the weekend and scored two wins in the Restricted 600 class.
Kasiner kicked the action off on Friday night by timing the West Hills Oil/CS9/Security Race Products No. 21k in second fastest in qualifying time trials.
Lining up in the second row of his heat race, the Five Points, CA driver would turn in a nice performance as he would surge to the lead and pick up the win by over two seconds.
Finding himself on the pole of the feature event, Kasiner would get the early jump and quickly open up a sizeable lead as he worked the bottom of the Delta Speedway on both ends of the track.
Getting into traffic in just a handful of laps, the yellow would slow the field down and give Kasiner open track. When the green was displayed to the field again, Kasiner again left the field in his wake, as he looked extremely strong on this night.
Traffic would slow Kasiner up a little, but the youngster would show patience as he was able to pick off slower cars until the yellow again gave him clear track. Never seriously challenged on this night, Kasiner would cruise to his fifth win of the season.
Saturday night saw Kasiner come out strong again as he timed in third fastest during qualifying time trials.
Finishing third in his heat race after a hard fought battle, Kasiner would find himself in the second row for the feature event.
Flexing his muscles when the finale came to life, Kasiner would jump into the lead when the race came to life as he looked to pull of the weekend sweep.
Out in front, the only thing that seemed to slow Kasiner was traffic, but again he was very methodical with the slower cars aboard his Roger Vogt’s Performance Auto & Air/Irritec P1 Drop Tape/Keizer Wheels machine.
Keeping his challengers at bay for the second night in a row, Kasiner would take the checkered flag first and complete the Summer Sizzler weekend sweep.
Garth Kasiner would like to thank West Hills Oil, CS9, Security Race Products, Roger Vogt’s Performance Auto & Air, Irritec P1 Drop Tape, Keizer Wheels, Factory Kahne, Kasiner Farms Inc., B&B Ag Transport LLC, Superior, Soil Supplements, Simplot, and Fresno Equipment Company for their support.
