Michael Faccinto Back In Top-Five at Placerville Speedway

PETERSEN MEDIA- Back in action at Placerville Speedway for the first time since a memorable Dave Bradway Jr Memorial weekend the first weekend of June, Michael Faccinto picked up another Top-Five finish at the track.

“The F&F guys continue to give me a good car, and we had another solid night at Placerville Speedway,” Michael Faccinto said. “These strong finishes are great, but we all want to start turning them into wins and I think we are very close to picking one up.”

27 cars were in attendance at Placerville Speedway on Saturday night as a part of fan appreciation night, and Faccinto go the night underway by timing the Bushey Financial Services/C&H Motor Parts/Precision Civil Engineering entry in 12thquickest in time trials.

Not quite where they wanted to be in time trials, Faccinto was able to take advantage of the front row starting position in his heat race as he surged ahead and grabbed the important win.

With the win, Faccinto greatly improved his feature event starting position as it secured him a position in the redraw, and the six pill placed him in the third row of what ended up being a non-stop feature event.

When the race came to life, Faccinto got a great jump as he was into third as cars bunched up ahead of him.

Running in third the opening nine laps, Faccinto slipped back to fourth as Andy Forsberg raced underneath him as traffic loomed ahead on a very slick racing surface.

Slipping back to fourth, Faccinto found himself battling with Tony Gomes in the closing laps as they jockeyed for the final position on the podium. Going back and forth in the final laps, Faccinto capped the night off with a fourth place finish.

“It was great to get back up to Placerville Speedway after a few weeks away, and we are looking forward to another good night on the 4th,” Faccinto added.
