Set to Return to Swindle Speedlab For High Limits Buckeye Nationals
PETERSEN MEDIA: Following a Gold Cup riddled with tough luck, Justin Sanders was back in action with ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ Friday night in Hanford, CA for the Tom Tarlton Classic where he rebounded from a mid-race miscue and scored an eighth place finish during the series’ final stop in California in 2022.”
“It was a huge bummer to wreck in Chico, CA and end our Gold Cup on our preliminary night,” Justin Sanders said. “Silver Dollar has been good to me the last few years, and that stung. We did bounce back and get things sorted for Hanford, CA this past Friday night and I was pretty happy with how everything went aside from a mistake in turns one and two.”
Going out late in qualifying time trials, Sanders would show his CA expertise as he navigated around the trick curb that had built up to near perfection as he ended up sixth fastest aboard the Farmers Brewing/Mittry Construction/North County Plastering backed No. 2x.
Gridding the field from the front row of his heat race, the Aromas, CA pilot settled into second when the race came to life and eventually punched his ticket into both the feature event as well as the all important Fast Pass Dash.
Running second in the Dash to Carson Macedo, Sanders put the Mittry Motorsports entry on the front row of the $21,000-to-win Tom Tarlton Classic as he searched for his first win with the series.
Settling into second when the race came to life, Sanders held his own as he chased after Macedo who set a torrid pace up front. Amid traffic and restarts, Sanders slipped back to the fourth position on the 14th lap, but continued to hold his own.
On the 20th circuit, Sanders would get over the cushion in turns one and two which drew the yellow, however able to keep the machine under power the World of Outlaws utilized the 'Blend Rule’ and put Sanders in 18th for the restart.
Jumping back to 16th as the action resumed, Sanders continued to make up the lost ground as he was back in 10th by lap 25 and was up to sixth on the 27th lap. As the race wound down, Sanders would ultimately slip back to eighth where he went on to finish.
“We had a really good car, and I was happy we rebounded as well as we did after getting off the end of the track,” he added. “We passed a lot of good cars and salvaged a pretty good finish.”
