PETERSEN MEDIA- For the second consecutive weekend, Matt Peterson raced his way to a fourth place finish at the high-banked Placerville Speedway.
“Things have gone very well for our team the last few weekends, and I am very thankful to everyone that helps us out,” Matt Peterson said.
Getting off to a slower start than he would have liked on Saturday night, Peterson would time the Miller Lite/V&H Fresh/Inventory Sales Company No. p37 machine in ninth fastest during qualifying time trials.
Finishing fourth in his heat race, the Wilton, CA product would take the green flag on Saturday night from the third row. Losing a couple of positions at the start of the race, Peterson would come right back and get by Jake Morgan and Carson Macedo to get back into the fifth spot.
Getting by Logan Seavey for the fourth spot, Peterson would then set his sights on Jimmy Trulli during the remainder of the race. Getting close on a couple of occasions, Peterson would not get the opening that he needed and would hang on to fourth as he took the checkered flag.
“The track was really fast, but we were able to move forward, and it was not an easy task,” Peterson said. “We have been running very well as of late, and hopefully we can continue it as there are some big races on the horizon.”
Matt and his team would like to thank V&H Fresh, Miller Lite, Inventory Sales Company, Bear Trucking, Future Energy Savers, Transportation Services, The Oil Medics, Shell Shock, Vahlco Wheels, and MTFX Graphics for their support in 2015.
