Matt Peterson Fourth at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking to the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night, Wilton, CA driver, Matt Peterson raced his way to a fourth place finish.

“It was a great night overall for this team, and I was really pleased with how we raced and how we finished,” Matt Peterson said.

Timing his Miller Lite/V&H Fresh/Inventory Sales Company No. p37 in fifth fastest during qualifying time trials, Peterson would hook up in a very entertaining battle with Greg DeCaires during heat race action.

Battling back and forth lap after lap, Peterson would settle for second but still qualified for the nightly A Main redraw. Pulling the four pill, Peterson would grid the field from the second row for the 25-lap feature event.

When things got underway, Peterson would slip back to the sixth spot but a spinning car in front of him would move him back into the Top-Five. As the action resumed, Peterson would go to work on the bottom as he ran very clean laps as he chased after some of the region’s top drivers.

In the closing stages of the race, Peterson would close in on fourth running Cory Eliason. Pressuring Eliason on the last lap, Peterson would get under him and take the fourth spot when the checkered flag flew on the event.

“It was a good night to work on something, and we got to rolling the bottom really well,” Peterson added. “I was able to chase down some really good cars, and make a nice late race move to put us in the fourth spot.”

Matt and his team would like to thank V&H Fresh, Miller Lite, Inventory Sales Company, Bear Trucking, Future Energy Savers, Transportation Services, The Oil Medics, Shell Shock, Vahlco Wheels, and MTFX Graphics for their support in 2015.
