Nunes 12th at Silver Dollar Speedway Before Qualifying Mishap Ends Night In Placerville, CA


PETERSEN MEDIA: Seth Nunes would pick up a 12th place finish at the Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night before a wreck in qualifications on Saturday night would bring his night to an early end.

“We had a good car on Friday night, and I just didn’t have a very good showing,” Nunes said. “Saturday night we timed in 10th fastest but I got over the cushion and into the wall and it caused some frame damage and brought out night to an end.”

Friday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway, Nunes would time the Napa Auto Parts/Lucas Oil Racing Products/VSR Steering Repair No. 5v in eighth fastest in time trials, before making some strong moves that would secure him the win during his heat race.

Pulling the seven in the nightly redraw, Nunes would line up in the fourth row for the 25-lap feature event. Aboard the Jim and Annette Van Lare owned No. 5v, Nunes would admittedly make some mistakes and struggle on the 1/4mile speedway as he would slip back to finish in the 12th spot.

Swapping engines and heading to the Placerville Speedway on Saturday night to take on the Civil War Series, Nunes would lay down a great lap in time trials that saw him end up 10th fastest overall amongst the 32 cars in the pit area. However, getting over the cushion at the end of his run, Nunes would slam into the turn two wall and cause frame damage, which would bring his night to an early end.

“I am really bummed on hurting the car in qualifying, but Jim and Annette Van Lare and the crew give me a great car every weekend,” Nunes added. “Hopefully I can rebound and have a strong showing at their track this weekend.”

Seth would like to thank Napa Auto Parts, Lucas Oil Products, VSR Steering Repair, Bianchi Farms, Cameron and Cameron Ranch & Vineyard Supply, CCI, and Awesome Racewear for their support in 2016.

ON TAP: Seth will be in action this Friday night in either Chico, CA or Watsonville, CA before returning to action with the Civil War Series on Saturday night in Petaluma, CA.

2016 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-12, Wins-0, Top 5’s-1, Top 10’s-2
