Netto Opens 2017 Up in Victory Lane


PETERSEN MEDIA: DJ Netto wasted no time returning to victory lane. Ending his 2016 season with a win in Arizona, the Hanford, CA navigated around a rough and tumble Marysville Raceway beautifully on Saturday night to score the win during the season opening Toller Memorial.

“I really owe this to my guys, and this team,” DJ Netto said. “We raced until mid-November last year, and they worked hard during a short off season to make sure we were ready for 2017 and we came out very strong.”

Timing in fifth fastest at Marysville Raceway, Netto would then pocket a second place finish in his heat race and earn a spot in the Top-Eight redraw. With lady luck not on his side in the draw, Netto would pull the eight pill and line the Tri-C Machine/Netto AG/Penny Newman Grain entry up in the fourth row for the 25-lap feature event.

Getting up into sixth before the race went green due to a front row car pulling off the racing surface, Netto was hard on the throttle as he quickly began battling with Andy Forsberg and Geoff Ensign up front.

With a rough surface giving some drivers fits, the Hanford, CA product was able to avoid the ruts and move into the second spot. With his sights set on Ensign, Netto would close in on the leader in traffic until the caution waived as the leader made contact with a stalled lapped car.

Now in the lead with open track, Netto would set sail on the field. Continuing to get around the tricky Marysville Raceway with ease, Netto would not be challenged in the closing laps as he raced his way to the impressive win.

“I have to thank Clyde and Marion Lamar, as well as my family for coming together and putting a really strong team together,” Netto added. “We worked really well together last year, and we are off to a nice start this season.”

ON TAP: DJ Netto will return to action this Friday and Saturday in Chico, CA during the Mini Gold Cup.

2017 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-3, Wins-1, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-2
