Mechanical Issues Slow Chase Johnson and Del Morris Motorsports at Placerville Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA: Taking the wheel of the Del Morris Motorsports No. 71r Midget on Wednesday in Placerville, CA, Chase Johnson would have a fast car early in the night but mechanical issues would end his night early.

“We had a really good car on Wednesday night,” Johnson said. “I felt really good in hot laps and time trials, but a brake issue arose in our heat race and it ultimately did our night in.”

With 15 cars on hand for the Lucas Oil BCRA/POWRi Midget League portion of the Gold Country Shootout, the Penngrove, CA driver timed his Morris Motorsports entry in fourth fastest in time trials.

Moving into heat race action, Johnson would get off to a good start as he got into the third position but soon began to develop brake issues. Able to hang on, Johnson would finish third and find himself in the third row for the feature event.

Following heat race action, the Del Morris Motorsports crew would go to work on Johnson’s brake issues and find the issue but would not have the time to make the fix.

Going out for the feature to see if he could maintain with the brake issue, Johnson would make one lap and think better of the situation and make his way back to the pit area.

“Thanks to all the Morris Motorsports guys for all of their hard work,” Johnson said. “It wasn’t the ideal way for our night to go, but it was good to have a really fast car.”

Morris Motorsports would like to thank Morris Insurance Agency,, Lucas Oil, Cal Crush, Walker Performance Filtration, Bruce’s Body Shop, John Meintasis Construction, and TRD for their support in 2019.
