Sean Becker 11th During Debut with Vertullo Motorsports
PETERSEN MEDIA- Saturday night saw Sean Becker make his debut with Vertullo Motorsports as the team checked in at Marysville Raceway. When it was all said and done, Becker recorded an 11th place finish, but the return to racing has the Roseville, CA driver excited for what is to come.
“It was great to get the season started with a new team,” Sean Becker said. “The more we race together, the more speed we will continue to show.”
With 24 cars checked in at Marysville Raceway for the ‘Open Wheel Sprint Car Opener’, Becker timed the Starr Property Management/G&N Construction backed No. 83V machine in 15th fastest.
Making the heat race inversion, Becker would line up on the front row of the third heat race, but the bottom groove proved to the place to start all night long. S
Slipping back to finish third, Becker would miss out on a spot in the redraw but was still safely in the feature event and would take the green flag from the 14th starting position.
On a very hooked up and fast racing surface, passing would prove to be pretty tricky as drivers were forced to gain ground by taking advantage of others mistakes. With the first attempted start being waived off, the second start would see ‘The Shark jump up to the 10th position when the race came to life.
Racing in a tight gaggle of cars around the ¼ mile track, Becker would crack the Top-10 before the caution flew on the eighth lap.
When the race picked back up, Becker would find himself up in the seventh position before the race’s halfway point. In some close quarters racing action, he would lose a pair of spots on the 10th lap before slipping back to 11th with just 10-laps to go in the race.
With the back half of the race clicking off laps in torrid fashion, ‘The Shark’ would flirt with cracking the Top-10, but would close his first night out in the Vertullo Motorsports machine with an 11th place finish.
BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-0, Wins-0, Top 5’s- 0, Top-10’s- 0
ON TAP: Becker is slated to return to action this weekend at Silver Dollar Speedway for the Silver Cup.
