Ryan Robinson Nets Third and Ninth Place Finishes in Chico, CA




PETERSEN MEDIA: Getting right back to action over the weekend in Chico, CA, Ryan Robinson and the Weiher Racing team would have a nice showing that saw them finish third on Friday night before a ninth place run with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Saturday night.


“It was a really good weekend for this No.14w team,” Ryan Robinson said. “We showed a lot of speed both nights against a really big, and strong’ field of cars.”


The Spring Nationals Weekend in Chico, CA kicked off Friday night with 61 cars checking in for action. Robinson would get the night opened up by timing the Mako Farms Inc./LP Holdings/Roseville Precision, Inc. backed entry in second fastest in his time trial group.


Lining up on the front row of his heat, Robinson would race to the win, which was vital on this night as it also moved him into the redraw. Pulling the four pill for the outside lane, Robinson would take the green flag from the eighth starting position on a very slick and tricky racing surface.


Able to work his way forward amidst a myriad of stoppages, Robinson would find himself in third and in a hotly contested battle with Dominic Scelzi for the second spot as they both chased after DJ Netto.


Holding down the third position, Robinson would accept the checked flag in the third spot and cap his night off on the podium.


Back again on Saturday night for a night of racing with the SCCT, 61 cars again packed the pit area and on this night Robinson would time in both fastest in his group and earn the Bianchi Farms Fast Time Overall award.


Lining up fourth in his heat race with only three drivers transferring into the feature, Robinson would find himself in a knockdown, drag out battle with Colby Copeland for the final transfer position.


Getting the third position at the line, Robinson would move into the Dash where his fifth-place finish put him in the ninth starting position for the 35-lap David Tarter Memorial feature event.


On another technical racing surface, Robinson was able to work his way forward into the fifth spot. On the tight bullring, a little contact would ensue that knocked his nose wing down and made the handling on his machine tough.


Doing what he could to keep his machine up front, Robinson would fade a little at the end of the race as he would settle for a ninth-place finish.

“We struggled in the Dash on Saturday, but I felt like we had a really good car in the ‘A’ after we made some adjustments,” Robinson added. “We got up to fifth, but our nose wing got knocked down made things pretty tough. Happy to come away with a Top-10 after a podium on Friday.”


Weiher Racing would like to thank Mako Farms, Inc., LP Holdings, Roseville Precision, Inc., Escalon Body and Frame, Seth’s Racing Engines, Papa Chuck, Dave Harvey Trucking, and Morrison Concrete for their support in 2021!

BY THE NUMBERS: Races-9, Wins-0, Top 5’s-2, Top 10’s-8

ON TAP: Robinson and Weiher Racing will be idle this weekend before returning to action on May 15th in Hanford, CA.
