PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back on dirt over the weekend, Robbie Price would make a return to 410ci racing as he finished fourth on Friday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA before an early contact with the Civil War Series on Saturday night ended his night.
“It was nice to get back on dirt, and nice to make my third start with the 410ci engine bolted in,” Price said. “I was happy with how we ran in Chico, CA, but disappointed with how our night ended on Saturday in Petaluma, CA.”
Stopping in at the Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night, Price timed his Raylle Auto Sales/Millstone Heating and Sheet Metal/Tiger Towing No. 21p machine in ninth fastest, putting him in the third row of his heat race.
Finishing in the fifth spot, Price would find himself in the second row for the 25-lap feature event. As the race went green, Price went wheel to wheel with some of the top drivers in the Northern California region as he battled with Colby Copeland, Jonathan Allard and Sean Becker.
Moving into the third spot at the halfway point in the race. Price would chase after the lead duo, who raced each other very hard in front of him. As the laps clicked down and the race drew to a close, Price would feel pressure from a charging Sean Becker who had to make a mid race pit stop.
Battling with Becker in the closing stages of the race, Price would end up giving up the third spot, and would end his night with a fourth place finish.
Pulling the 360ci car out on Saturday, Price and his team would make the trip to the Petaluma Speedway to return to action with the Civil War Series presented by Flowmaster.
Getting off to a great start on Saturday night, Price was able to get his machine qualified in second quickest of the night.
From that point on, Price’s night would start to go down hill. Running in a transfer spot in his heat race, Price would have issues with his wing valve inside the cockpit, and would get over the cushion, and ultimately find himself in his first B Main of the year.
Slipping back to third in the semi, Price would not get his time back for the 30-lap feature event, and would be forced to line up in the ninth row for the 30-lap feature event.
As the race got underway, Price searched for open real estate as he looked to mount a charge to the front. On the fifth lap, contact would see Price’s machine spin around and get over, and his night would ultimately come to a close.
“It was a roller coaster weekend you could say, “ Price added. “We had a really good night on Friday, I thought, and a tough one on Saturday. The only thing to do now is put it behind us and get ready for Dirt Cup.”
Price and his team would like to thank Raylle Auto Sales, Millstone Heating and Sheet Metal, Tiger Towing, Rod End Supply, Northwest School of Martial Arts, Shark Racing Engines, and Speedmart for their support during the 2015 season.
