Lucas Ashe Fights Back From Early Issues To Finish 11th in Placerville, CA


PETERSEN MEDIA: Fighting brake issues early in the night on Saturday in Placerville, CA, Lucas Ashe and his team would fight back to finish 11th in the feature event.

“We had brake issues in hot laps and qualifying, and it really got us off to a slow start,” Lucas Ashe said. “Fortunately, my guys worked extremely hard through the night and we were able to dig out of a hole and finish 11th on a pretty technical track.”

Fighting issues through the early stages of Saturday night’s event in Placerville, CA, Lucas Ashe would end up timing in 16th quickest. Working on a nagging brake issue before his heat race, the Cottonwood, CA driver would race to a third place finish and line up 15th in the feature event.

With track prep taking place prior to the feature event, Ashe would benefit from starting on the inside lane, as it would prove to be the fastest way around the race track and things came to life.

Able to get a couple of positions on the start of the race, Ashe would find himself up in 13th as the field settled in. With much of the race being a follow the leader type affair, Ashe would spend much of the night running back in 13th.

As patience ran thin for some drivers as the laps clicked off, Ashe would take advantage as he was able to get their spots in the closing laps as he ended his night with an 11th place finish.

“With how the night started, I am happy with where we ended up,” Ashe said. “We got our issues resolved with was huge with how the track was for the feature. Thanks to my guys for their continued efforts, and thanks to the people who back us and allow us to have some fun.”
