PETERSEN MEDIA: Making one final 360ci start before this week’s Trophy Cup, DJ Netto was able to work his way forward to finish in the fifth spot on Friday night at the Kings Speedway, before mechanical issues sidelined him with the King of the West Series on Saturday night.
“Friday night the track was pretty racy, and we really got moving forward late in the race,” DJ Netto said. “Saturday night, we had some bad luck that unfortunately knocked us out of the race.”
Getting his weekend kicked off by timing the Netto Ag/Penny Newman Grain/Bogies Auto Parts No. 88n in 12th fastest, Netto would take advantage of his front row starting spot in his heat race and pick up the win.
With the win, the Hanford, CA pilot earned a berth in the night’s Dash where a seventh place finish put him in the fourth row of the 30-lap King of King’s 360’s A Main.
On a very racy Keller Auto Speedway, Netto raced inside the Top-10 as action on this night was extremely close knit. With the only stoppage of the night coming on the second, lap the entirely of the race was nearly ran non stop.
As the laps clicked off, Netto started to really shine as he was able to work his way forward. Getting by Cory Eliason, Netto would race his way by Bud Kaeding as he looked for a spot inside the Top-Five.
With fifth running Jonathan Allard in his sights with just a couple of laps to go, Netto was able to track him down and slide his way to the fifth spot as he came to the checkered flag.
Looking for another strong run at the Thunderbowl Raceway on Saturday night, Netto would get off to a nice start with the King of the West Series as he timed in seventh fastest of the 29 cars checked into the pit area.
Finishing in the fourth and final transfer spot during his heat, Netto would move into the 30-lap A main, where he was slated to take the green flag form the from the sixth row.
When the race went green, Netto would have mechanical issues and his machine would slow and bring out the caution. The end result would prove terminal for Netto on this night, and his race would unfortunately be over.
“I really have to thank all of the guys for their continued hard work,” Netto said. “I know I sound like a broken record but it’s been a process for us to gel, and everyone is working hard for good results, and we were able to get that on Friday night. Saturday night was frustrating, and it always is when you have a mechanical issue. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to get back to Tulare this weekend and race again during the Trophy Cup.”
DJ and his Netto Racing team would like to thank Netto Agriculture, Penny Newman Grain, Bogies Auto Parts, Kaeding Performance, and Vande Pol Enterprises for their support in 2015.
ON TAP: Netto and his team will be in action this Thursday-Saturday for the 22nd Annual Trophy Cup taking place at the Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA.
